Dr. Erika Fong is originally from Mexico and came to the US after medical school graduation, where she completed her residency in Houston. Her subsequent surgical pathology fellowship was at Parkland Memorial Hospital, here in Dallas, with an emphasis in gynecologic pathology.

Married to a pediatric ENT surgeon, Dr. Fong enjoys cooking (including Italian, Mexican and Indian) as well as shopping and traveling. In her past life, she used to play soccer and basketball, but as is the theme of this month’s profiles, now spends more time chasing her two children than scoring goals or baskets.
