Dr. L. Nuwan Pilapitiya, who has been practicing in Family Medicine at the La Jara Medical Clinic for five years, will now be joining Dr. Sarah McAlpine, DO and Ed Kulp, PA-C in Family Medicine at the Stuart Ave. Clinic in Alamosa.
Dr. Pilapitiya and his wife recently celebrated the birth of a baby girl, and a desire to be closer to his family precipitated the move to Alamosa. He has begun seeing patients in Alamosa.
"The opportunity to be closer to my family on a day-to-day basis was something that was important to me," explained Dr. Pilapitiya. "I look forward to continuing to serve the patients and families that I have gotten to know over the past five years, as well as meeting new patients in this area."
"San Luis Valley Health has been nothing but a wonderful place to work over the past five years, and I remain committed to the organization and the community it serves," Dr. Pilapitiya went on to say.
