She completed her dermatology residency in New York City at Mt. Sinai Beth Israel-St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, including specialty training in treating skin of color. After residency, she finished an intensive 1-year fellowship program in Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction at Mt. Sinai and was invited to be a Fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery.
After her training was completed, Dr. Tang joined the faculty at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where she was appointed Director of the Mohs Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Unit.

Dr. Tang brings a joyful and personalized approach to practicing the art of dermatology. She offers a full spectrum of dermatologic services and expertise: general medical dermatology, surgical and non-surgical care of skin cancers, cosmetic dermatology, and hair restoration.
Her patient-centered aesthetic philosophy includes creating a highly customized plan for each patient and using results-proven products, treatments, and devices. This approach integrates powerful topical skincare to prevent and protect on a daily basis, neurotoxins to relax and prevent wrinkles, lasers/peels/micro-needling for textural improvement, and fillers for 3-D volume restoration to enhance her patient's natural beauty and bring out their most beautiful selves.
Outside of work, her passions include travel, trying new plant-based recipes, sleuthing the latest sun-protective gear, practicing yoga, skiing, freediving and spearfishing, and anything involving the enjoyment of the great outdoors.
