From the Doctor

The experience I gained by working with my dad's family practice in England has given me a unique outlook. I believe in treating the "whole patient," and enjoy being able to see entire families and provide continuity of care. I treat each of my patients with the respect and consideration they deserve.

In my spare time, I read, do crafts and spend time with my husband and teenage son. I grew up in Sri Lanka and England, and, with family spread around the world, we enjoy traveling when we have the time.

I volunteer my time at the Clay County Health Department Clinic, and I am also involved in the Tampa Buddhist Temple.
