29 Jan Introducing Dr Shashika Jayakody | Timboon Medical Clinic
The Timboon Medical Clinic is preparing to welcome a new GP, with Dr Shashika Jayakody taking appointments from next week.
‘Dr Shashi’, 35, hails from Sri Lanka and moved to Melbourne with her Australian husband in 2016. This week they are busy moving to Timboon with their one year-old son.
“We visited a few places and Timboon was the place I liked the most,” she said.
“It’s very leafy and we just loved all the trees. We like the natural environment and we feel it will be good for our little one to grow up in the country.
“Timboon is the perfect place for him – he loves nature as well and we want him to grow up in an environment here he can explore and have nice fresh air.”
Dr Shashi started her medical studies at Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, in 2012. She taught medical graduates for Alan Roberts International Medical Graduates Support & Advisory Services (ARIMGSAS) in Melbourne while completing her Australian exams.
She has experience as a GP in Melbourne but also spent time over the past two years in paediatrics and women’s health as well as asthma and mental health services.
Please contact the Timboon clinic on 5558 6088 to make an appointment with Dr Shashi or any of the other GPs.
