MBBS (Sydney) Dip Child Health (Otago) FRNZCGP
I was born in Sri Lanka and studied medicine at the University of Sydney, Australia, graduating 20 years ago. After working in Sydney for a few years, I came to New Zealand and have lived and worked in the Waikato since. I was a GP in a semi-rural town in Waikato until recently.
I enjoy being a GP due to the opportunity it affords me to build long term therapeutic relationships with my patients. I have recently joined the team at Victoria Clinic. I have a special interest in Paediatrics and sexual abuse care.
I am a mentor in the Ka Hono mentoring pilot of the RNZCGP Waikato/BOP faculty and have been mentoring young GPs. I look forward to teaching GP registrars/nurse practitioners and participating in the Urgent Care roster.
I am married with teenage children who keep me busy.
