Dr. Tang has a broad clinical interest in general hematology and sickle cell disease, especially in disorders of iron metabolism, clinical treatment and management of sickle cell disease, transfusion-related iron overload, and best practices in transfusion therapy and related complications in sickle cell disease.

Dr. Tang grew up in metro Atlanta and feels very fortunate to be back home, working with a talented and supportive group of hematology providers, nurses and staff. Her patients and families continue to impress her with their strength and resilience, and she considers it a privilege to be part of their care.
