Like many of our Editorial Review Group Chairs, Dr. Patricia Wong has continued in the position way beyond her original commitment of three years – in her case, for 15 years. Since 1999, she not only has served as Editorial Review Group Chair in Dermatology for Doody Enterprises, she also has been a very active reviewer. Of the 775 Dermatology titles we have sent her, she is responsible for the reviews of 310 of them, while the 19 reviewers she has recruited have reviewed 166.
Dr. Wong is board certified in Internal Medicine and Dermatology. She completed her premedical education at the University of Washington. She attended medical school at University of California San Francisco. Her Internal Medicine residency was accomplished at the University of Washington and Dermatology residency was performed at University of Arizona Health Sciences Center and Stanford University Medical Center.
She has served on the clinical teaching faculty in the department of dermatology at Stanford University Medical Center. She is currently in private practice in Palo Alto, California, where she specializes in medical and aesthetic dermatology and sees children, adolescents, and adults.
Dr. Wong enjoys playing the piano for patients at the hospital, gardening, diagnosing and treating plant maladies, and solving mystery rashes.
