Doctors make move to Warwick
THE Condamine Medical Centre has two new faces roaming around the corridors.
Dr Adareeka Jayasinghe and Dr Abu Sait are general practitioner registrars who will become fully-fledged GPs in two years time.
Dr Jayasinghe grew up in Home Hill in north Queensland, went to high school in Brisbane and university in Tasmania.
Before moving to Warwick she worked in the Ipswich Hospital where she dabbled in a number of fields including paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology.
Dr Jayasinghe moved to Warwick to be closer to her husband who is a doctor at the Warwick Hospital.
"That drew me here, but I had also heard really good things about the practice," Dr Jayasinghe said.
Dr Sait hailed from India six years ago where he worked in numerous places across the country.
"In 2007 I worked as a drug rehabilitation supervisor in Logan and worked in the emergency department in Perth for two years but I missed the East Coast so came back to do some work on the Gold Coast," Dr Sait.
Both doctors have been in Warwick since January and plan to stay around a year to 18 months before completing their training in other areas.
