About the Provider

Jessica S. Wang Memoli, MD, is board certified in pulmonary disease, critical care medicine and internal medicine. She is the Director of Bronchoscopy & Interventional Pulmonary, as well as the Associate Fellowship Program Director for Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center. She is a member of the American Thoracic Society (ATS), a Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), and the Association of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program Directors (APCCMPD).
Dr. Wang Memoli received her medical degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She completed her residency at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and her fellowship training at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
Dr. Wang Memoli specializes in the diagnosis and management of pulmonary diseases, specializing in the evaluation of lung cancer and lung nodules. She is one of the first pulmonologists in the area to use robotic bronchoscopy as a tool for evaluating lung nodules. As an interventional pulmonologist, Dr. Wang Memoli uses various therapeutic interventions to treat conditions such as airway obstructions, malignant pleural effusions and persistent air leaks.
Her current research initiatives include the use of guided bronchoscopic techniques to evaluate peripheral lung nodules, placement of endobronchial valves to manage persistent air leaks, and assessing new sedatives for bronchoscopy procedures.
Philosophy of Care
"Designing a care plan is merely one part of the diagnosis and management of lung disease, especially lung cancer. My ultimate goal for each individual is to help them understand every step of the diagnostic process, give answers to questions about the complex medical realm which they are now a part of, and offer comfort and reassurance to alleviate the overwhelming emotions that arise. I take this responsibility seriously and strive to ease the doubts and fears my patients have during the uncertainty of the diagnostic process.
Additionally, I make every effort to palliate symptoms by being an active and attentive listener and encourager. I want my patients to be involved in honest conversations that will help me to create a personalized care plan that best fits their needs. When appropriate, I advocate for the less invasive and potentially safer treatment options."
