Claudia Wang, M.D.
Claudia Wang, M.D. is an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at UCLA and our TIES healthcare consultant. At TIES, she provides medical consultation for referred cases by reviewing available medical records, identifying possible additional medical information which may be sought in order to assist in the evaluation, providing a medical summary, and giving feedback to the providers. The pediatrician may be requested to attend a child's developmental assessment in order to see the child and discuss the caregiver's medical concerns. Dr. Wang's other interest is in child protection. She has been the Medical Director of the UCLA Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect Team since 1992 where her primary role is evaluating child abuse and neglect cases, which include prenatally substance exposed infants. She also focuses on education regarding child endangerment within the UCLA Medical Center and within Los Angeles County Department of Social Welfare. The TIES pediatrician's role is for consultation and unfortunately is not able to become the primary care physician for our TIES children.
