Where I practice
I was born in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and lived in India and England before moving to the U.S. I have wanted to work in the health field for as long as I can remember but decided to apply to medical school after my mother and grandmother passed away when I was a teenager. Despite the long hours and lengthy training, I cannot think of a more rewarding career.
I completed my residency at Atlanta Medical Center, where I also met my husband. We moved to Alpharetta a few years ago and were blessed with a beautiful daughter and a son. I worked in a private clinic, and then in a rehab and long-term care facility, before joining Kaiser Permanente in 2017.
About my practice
I am family medicine trained and work with a group of caring, dedicated, and friendly doctors, nurses and administrative staff. I enjoy getting to know our members and building a warm, caring, trusting relationship with them, with the aim of improving their overall physical and mental health. I am passionate about preventive medicine, nutrition, exercise and empowering patients to take control of their health. I am grateful for every patient encounter and tend to learn something from each patient I have the pleasure of meeting.
How I thrive
Having children has introduced me to a whole new dimension of happiness. Having them keeps me motivated to try and stay fit and healthy. Nothing beats the joy I get from spending time with my family. We love swimming, playing tennis and cycling. I enjoy cross-fit training three times a week as it pushes me to try and do my personal best physically and mentally in a friendly group environment. Coming from a family of big eaters, I absolutely love good food. Dining with close friends and family, traveling, and listening to music are some of my greatest pleasures. I have close family in England and Asia and like to travel often to see my family and friends.
