Dr. Wang Seeing Patients at St. Francis Family Medicine
CHI Health St. Francis Family Medicine is open and scheduling appointments for patients of all ages.
Dr. Shu-Ming Wang, who served as Vice President for Medical Operations at St. Francis over the last three years, has decided to return to her love of practicing family medicine and is the provider at the new clinic, located at 908 N Howard Ave., in Suite 109. Wang is a board-certified family practice physician with 22 years of experience prior to her administrative role at St. Francis.
"I realized how much I enjoyed and missed the patient-care aspect of my career and I really wanted an opportunity to return to it," Wang said. "What I like best is the day-to-day interaction with patients and the satisfaction of knowing that I can make a positive impact on someone’s health or someone’s day."
Wang, who began seeing patients at St. Francis Family Medicine on April 9, said she believes it’s important for primary care physicians to build long-term relationships with the patients and families they serve.
"I am very open to listening and trying to gain a full understanding of each patient’s situation and their specific issues," Wang said. "I also want to focus on promoting good health practices and helping our patients to keep themselves well."
