About Dr. Grace J. Wang

Dr. Grace J. Wang is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She completed her general surgical training at the Massachusetts General Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. She then completed a Vascular and Endovascular fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, whereupon she stayed on as faculty.

Her clinical interests include carotid endarterectomy and carotid stenting, endovascular and open interventions for limb salvage, endovascular and surgical repair of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms, and dialysis access. Dr. Wang is also Clinical Director of the Vascular Lab at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

She completed a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology through the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at University of Pennsylvania.  Her research interests lie in using large scale databases to study trends in practice, predictors of outcomes, and gender disparities in access to care in vascular surgery. She has utilized the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), National Surgical Quality Improvement (NSQIP) as well as the Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI) registries to conduct these studies.

Patient Satisfaction Ratings

Patient Rating Breakdown

The Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown below from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

Comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not necessarily reflect the views of Penn Medicine.
