Biography

After growing up in Saskatchewan, Dr. Wang moved to Ontario to pursue his dreams of becoming a physician and a jazz flutist. Although he loved the creative aspects of making music, his true passion was medicine. The door towards rehabilitation medicine first opened during his volunteering with the music therapy program at Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. He was instantly drawn in by the multidisciplinary care approach and its ability to transcend both physical and psychosocial domains of well-being.


In his spare time, he is an amateur musician and an avid badminton player. 


We have 5 Physiatrists with a diverse range of experiences and special interests.
