About Me

Michael P. Wang, MD, studied medicine at the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine and went on to complete his fellowship in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology and his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Wang chose a career in interventional radiology because it allowed him to combine his interests in biological sciences and advanced technology in the care of patients.

Interventional radiologists are specially trained board-certified physicians who perform minimally invasive, targeted treatments while using different imaging techniques to diagnose and treat a variety of medical disorders. Procedures performed by interventional radiologists are generally less costly and less traumatic to the patient, involving smaller incisions, less pain and shorter hospital stays.

Coming to a hospital setting can make patients nervous, but Dr. Wang is motivated to put patients at ease by clearly and simply explaining their procedures.

The well-being of my patients who are under my care while at the hospital for their procedures is of the utmost important to me. When patients share with me or my staff that we helped them feel at ease, I know that we have done our job.

Dr. Wang spent his early years on his grandfather's farm in Taiwan and as a result, is fluent in Mandarin. Outside of medicine, Dr. Wang enjoys art and going hiking with his family.
