Meet Our Team
Marissa – Front Office Manager
My name is Marissa, and I am the Front Office Manager here at Metropolis Dermatology, our brand new comprehensive dermatology and skincare clinic, founded by Dr. James Y. Wang. I have been part of the dermatology world for many years, and I love working with all the patients that I meet. My role will be to help you with any bookings, insurance issues, or other logistical concerns. I know that our facility is the best of the best and I will personally take care of you 100 percent. Patient care is my top priority. I hope you come say hi and see for yourself that we are serious about your care and you become part of our special family.
As a little background, I was born and raised right here in Los Angeles and I love all aspects of the city – from festivals and concerts to the delicious foodie hotspots and our beautiful weather. There are endless opportunities for adventure here. I am also a social media junkie, being inspired by all the great new trends. I try to step out of my comfort zone with new styles of skincare, hair, and makeup. When I’m not in the office, you can definitely find me at my daughter’s T-ball practices or spending quality time with my family.
Samantha – Back Office Manager
Hi! My name is Samantha, and I have worked as a Medical Assistant in dermatology for many years. I am so excited to join Metropolis Dermatology because Dr. James Y. Wang is a different kind of dermatologist who provides amazing care to everyone. Metropolis Dermatology, as a young clinic, will blend seamlessly into the surrounding DTLA area, which has become so vibrant and amazing. My new role as Back Office Manager will be to make sure that all of your clinical care is smooth and efficient – from a general skin check to surgeries, laser procedures to injectable appointments. My goal is to wow you with the level of service we provide, and allow you to get back to your busy lives with minimal delays.
I am currently obtaining a bachelors in nursing to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse practitioner. I plan to specialize in dermatology because it has become my passion over the years as I have worked with patients of all types. I am a very friendly, outgoing person whose goal is to always connect personally with each of my patients.. Outside the office, I enjoy hiking, taking my dogs to the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
Katherine – Medical Assistant
My name is Kat, and I am a Medical Assistant at Metropolis Dermatology. I am so excited to join this beautiful practice and amazing team. My role will be to help with your visit in any way that I can, making sure that you are comfortable and that your appointment is smooth, from a consultation to any procedures that may be required. I’m always happy to explain procedures and our skincare line to anyone interested.
I am a native of Los Angeles, born and raised in Koreatown. I have been in dermatology for many years, and love the field because of the diversity of patients that come through the door as well as the various advances in surgical and cosmetic techniques. I love being up to date on all the latest skincare products, therapies, and trends. Outside of dermatology, I love to read and engage in social media.
