“Shi Ban Gong Bei”, is an ancient Chinese saying, about accomplishing double the amount of work, in half of the time.
Dr. Ming Wang, a philanthropist and Nashvillian of the Year by Kiwanis International, is a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK eye surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics. He has performed over 55,000 procedures, including on over 4,000 doctors, so he has been called “The doctors’ doctor”.
Grew up in China, Ming came to this country with only $50, having survived the Cultural Revolution in which millions were deported and condemned to a lifetime of poverty and hard labor. Today, he is a world-class eye surgeon and is the ONLY surgeon in the state who performs 3D SMILE & 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Karma & 3D Raindrop (45+), 3D Forever Young Lens (50+) and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (60+).
Dr. Wang is the CEO of Aier-USA, a new U.S. – China healthcare venture that brings in investment from China and creates American jobs.
Dr. Wang has published 8 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, published over 100 papers including a paper in the journal “Nature”, and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. He founded two 501c(3) non-profit organizations, Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China and Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
In solving a problem, the matter is more important than the person
When solving a problem, you should not focus on the personal attributes of the person who made the mistake. If you do, you will place the focus on that person himself/herself, which may incite his/her ego and create an emotional barrier so he/she may never be able to see the issue itself. Instead, you should focus on the issue instead of the person. The goal is to solve the problem and improve the system, not to blame any particular person.
