drwang american snippetsEight year-old Ming Wang had no idea why his parents were so angry, or what he’d done wrong. He was a hard working, high-achieving student determined to make his family proud. He was an amazing big brother who never complained about the hard life they led. So when Chinese Communist officials swarmed down on his home and accused him of being a counter-revolutionary, Ming and his terrified parents pleaded for his life to be spared.

In the U.S., Ming received an M.D. from Harvard, magna cum laude, and a Ph.D. in laser physics from MIT. Now a world-renown, multi-award-winning eye surgeon, Nashville, Tennessee-based Dr. Wang has never forgotten his roots.
