Wadi Mawad, MD, FRCPC, Pediatric Cardiologist

Fun fact about me 

I have a keen eye for puns, that only I find funny most of the time...

I love working with children and their families because 
Helping children and their families through difficult times is a tremendous privilege. Bettering their lives through clinical care and research innovations is what drives me every day.
