Through his efforts, Flushing Hospital Medical Center has established a culturally sensitive hospitalist program which he is currently the medical director of. In 2017, under Dr. Wang’s leadership, a group of local medical providers opened the one and only urgent care center in the heart of Flushing, NY: HealthNeed Medical Urgent Center, of which he is the standing Medical Director as well. Dr. Wang and his team have strived to build the medical facility and it has become vital throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The center has provided numerous COVID relief and treatment services as well as administered thousands of vaccinations for the Flushing community; the center has not closed for a single day throughout the pandemic.
Dr. Wang has also established a busy primary care practice for both inpatient and outpatient care. With over 19 years of practicing medicine in different settings, from Emergency Room bedside care to subacute care in rehabilitation and nursing homes, and even complex outpatient care, Dr. Wang has gained tremendous knowledge and experience in a broad spectrum of medical practice. He has established a sophisticated outpatient Diabetes Center practice that is NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance) certified Diabetes Center.

He was the former President of the ACAP (Association of Chinese American Physicians) and board member of ECAP and IPA, as well as board director of FCMS (Federation of Chinese American and Chinese Canadian Medical Societies).
Dr. Wang believes that as physicians in the rapidly changing US healthcare system we need to join together to better serve the patients’ best interest. He is one of the founders and the former President and Chairman of the board of the Chinese Community Accountable Care Organization (CCACO) which represents more than 200 physicians in the greater New York area, and one of the first of 27 accountable care organizations that received licensure from CMS in the US.
