Dr. James Wang, MD
Dr. James Y. Wang is a double board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist who was born in tropical Taipei, but was raised in snowy Rochester, New York. He earned his M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School and his M.B.A. in Management and Healthcare Policy from Harvard Business School. From Boston, he came to southern California to complete dermatology training at the University of California, Los Angeles. His interest in the microscopic diagnosis of skin cancers and other conditions led him back to the east coast to complete a clinical fellowship in dermatopathology at the renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and NY-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters, as well as given presentations at national and international conferences. The Pacific Dermatology Association awarded him the Arnold W. Gurevich Prize. In addition, he received an international grant from the American Academy of Dermatology to staff an infectious disease and complex medical dermatology clinic in Botswana. In addition to his current practice of medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology, Dr. Wang serves as the CEO and co-founder of CureBiotech, an early-stage biotechnology firm that develops novel therapeutics for skin cancers, vitiligo, psoriasis, and hair loss.

San Francisco |
Dr. Wang is the best Dermatologist I've seen in LA. He not only has an amazing pedigree, but he is also super nice and accommodating. I've had dermatologists cut me off when I tried to bring up too many issues, but Dr. Wang addressed them all during our visit and performed procedures too. He's a great find.

I was really excited when I heard this office would be opening up near my house, and was happy to be seeing Dr. Wang - he has some impressive credentials ( Harvard degrees with training at NYC and UCLA). Dr. Wang was very knowledgeable and was able to diagnose my problem within minutes. He treated some dark spots on my face with a new laser called the Picosure. Those dark spots peeled off within 2 weeks & I had glowing skin underneath! I will definitely be coming back!!

Dr. Wang was amazing! I visited him once in Glendale on a Saturday and also in El Segundo on a Friday. Both times, I was seen on time, my questions were answered, and he went the extra step of finding the right free samples for me. He made sure the was follow-up on some of my issues, but he also was able to remove two bothersome moles for me at the same visit so I wouldn't have to make another visit for that issue. At my second visit, he did my Botox and lip filler, which looked great!
