Jeremy Wang

Jeremy Wang, PT

Jeremy was born on the island of O'ahu in Hawaii and raised in Los Angeles, California. When Jeremy was a child, his father was hit by a car while crossing the street. He had to witness his dad go through rehab until he was fully recovered. Seeing the struggles his father had to endure, he thought to himself "how can I help others who have also come face to face with an unexpected tragedy?"

Growing up, he also had familiarity with injuries because he loved to breakdance, skateboard, and was on the high school golf, tennis, and badminton team. Presently, what Jeremy enjoys the most about being a Physical Therapist is being able to help others live life without limitations. Many patients come in with severe pain and fear of not being able to return to their prior 'normal', but Jeremy guides and empowers his patients until they achieve optimal recovery.

Jeremy earned his Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences at University of California, Santa Barbara. During his undergraduate, he simultaneously worked as a Physical Therapy Technician in Orthopedic and Sports clinics. He went on to obtain his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at California State University, Long Beach. Currently, he has found his passion working for both ActivBody and Hoag Hospital Orthopedic Institute. In his spare time, Jeremy enjoys producing music and videography, collecting art, and exploring new foods.
