Dr. Lekawa's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lekawa "As a medical student, I was not interested in subspecializing in a particular field of medicine. Instead I wanted to become an internal medicine physician because I enjoy getting to know and treat all aspects of my patients, both physiological and psychological. I love the art and science of medicine. When I'm not practicing medicine, however, I enjoy traveling the world with my family. I have visited most of the world, but as a Sri Lanka native, I prefer traveling to Asia. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lekawa ""I like putting the whole picture together and treating the whole patient. I enjoy getting to know each patient, and I treat them like members of my family. I reward them just as I do my kids and discipline them as I would my own brothers.""
