A native of New Orleans, Louisiana Dr. Angela Wingfield’s first introduction to Mississippi consisted of summer vacations to Bay St. Louis as a child. Later she explored central Mississippi during her undergraduate days at Millsaps College in Jackson. At Millsaps she graduated magna cum laude with honors earning a B.S. degree in biology and a B.A. degree in English. Dr. Wingfield completed her medical school and dermatology residency training at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans where she had the privilege of training at Charity Hospital in New Orleans and Earl K. Long Medical Center in Baton Rouge. Dr. Wingfield was awarded board certification in dermatology in 2003, and she was re-certified in 2013. As a medical student Dr. Wingfield spent 10 weeks in the jungles of Indonesia conducting a research study on the treatment of a rare tropical fungal skin infection called Tinea Imbricata. This work was published in the well-respected British Journal of Dermatology. Her spirit for adventure and diverse patient experiences prepared Dr. Wingfield for her next challenge. In September 2003 Dr. Wingfield established the Dermatology Clinic, PLLC in Gulfport.
Dr. Wingfield’s practice grew by word of mouth. Patients who received good, honest, compassionate medical care referred their friends and family. Dr. Wingfield directs a healthcare team which includes three certified Physician Assistants, a Licensed Practical Nurse, and two licensed aestheticians. Dr. Wingfield has always enjoyed the variety of patients and diseases encountered in the field of dermatology. She also has a special interest in cosmetic dermatology where her creativity can be explored. She enjoys the “sculpting” that can be done with wrinkle fillers and botulinum toxin injections. It is rewarding to be able to use lasers to correct imperfections in a person’s appearance thereby restoring their self-confidence and sense of well-being.
