We asked Dr. Ang some questions
Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the State University of New York, obtaining a bachelor of science in nursing and psychology. Next I completed medical school at University of Alberta, and did my residency in family medicine at McGill University in Montreal. Now I’m a family doctor in Toronto and have accumulated more than 20 years of experience working at a busy walk-in clinic.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
I was inspired to become a healthcare provider at a young age. First, I became a nurse and gained experience in renal transplants, general surgery, and dialysis. Ultimately I became a doctor to help others improve their health and lives.
What do you love the most about practising medicine?
I love seeing improvement in my patient’s health, whether it’s physical or psychological improvement. It’s very rewarding to support positive changes in other peoples’ lives. I enjoy following up with patients, learning more about them, and learning from them.
What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?
Maple provides an excellent service to people who have trouble accessing their family doctor in rural areas. The app provides a great service, especially in these pandemic times. I really love that patients are able to either text, telephone, or video chat — whichever is the most comfortable for them. The ability for patients to provide pictures for issues such as skin lesions, throat infections, and wounds is very useful.
What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?
The most challenging aspect in the medical field is keeping up with ongoing developments of new treatments and medications on the market.
If you could choose any other career, what would it be?
If I weren’t able to practise medicine, I would become a dentist. I enjoy doing things with my hands and have good dexterity.
Is there an individual in the medical community that you find most inspiring?
I find Dr. Marla Shapiro an inspiration. She is a very knowledgeable family physician who used to have a television show. She is a wonderful communicator. Her strength in battling and surviving cancer is very inspiring.
Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?
Drinking plenty of kombucha and water has been extremely helpful to my health. Also, regular exercise like walking for 30-60 minutes per day has been great for my physical and mental health.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love traveling to different places where I snorkel and scuba dive. During these pandemic times, exploring new recipes has also been an enjoyable activity.

The most efficient and professional service ever. In less than an hour I was paired with a dermatologist who prescribed the medication required. A thorough consult and knowledgeable MD who made everything easy. My pharmacy had the prescription faxed in no time. I definitely see myself using the service in the future.
This was the best thing i've ever come across. I downloaded the app and one hour later had completed an appointment with a dermatologist who then faxed over 2 prescriptions to my pharmacy. I have been dealing with a terrible rash on my face since March with no hope in sight of getting into a dermatologist. When I found this app I was skeptical, but can honestly say it has saved my face, I am already seeing an improvement after 1 week.
Possibly the easiest way to meet a Dermatologist!
After getting a referral from our family doctor to see a dermatologist we were still waiting after 5 months. In frustration, I turned to the internet to look for options and stumbled across GetMaple. Wow…..saw the dermatologist within 24h and everything since has been very smooth.
Loved that I could speak to a doctor within 24hours. The dermatologist was quick, knowledgeable and listened to my concerns! Will definitely be using again!
Within 4 hours, I was connected to a dermatologist in Toronto who quickly diagnosed and prescribed a combination treatment. My prescription was ready within one hour for pickup.
The whole experience has been so quick and easy! I was told it would be 9+ months to see a dermatologist in person. With this service, I was able to speak with one in less than 24hrs and I already have been sent the prescription I need.
We followed their sleep advice yesterday and our baby Dia had a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks.
I've been watching Koble sessions while I pump at night. It makes pumping way better.
The best part of Koble for my partner and I was to connect with their sleep coach expert Aidan and her personalized advice was great! Now our baby sleeps much better, as do we!
