The Medical Board of California has given a public reprimand to Diane Darlene Wong, M.D. for not reporting a girl’s genital problems to Child Protective Services. Dr. Wong treated a girl, born in 2003, for genital problems, between 2012 and 2014.
The girl suffered from several medical woes such as chronic vaginal pain and infection. Among many things, Wong treated the girl for a sexually transmitted disease without investigating its possible causes and without referring the patient to Child Protective Services.
Wong failed to review the girl’s past medical history during visits, said the board. Wong also failed to question or evaluate the possibility of sexual abuse by the parents or others, said the board.
