Today, Dr. Praharsha Menon is living out a promise she made to her father at age three. That promise was to become a doctor, just like him.
"I've always been drawn to older adults," Dr. Menon says. "That may be because seniors have been such a big part of my life, even while growing up. I feel a personal responsibility and commitment to their welfare. I'm at my best when advocating for seniors' health, and I always do my best to serve each of my patients as a whole individual and a beautiful soul."
As a board certified family medicine physician, Dr. Menon treats a wide range of health concerns, illnesses and injuries, and is usually the first contact for her patients. She earned her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, and her medical degree, from the Medical College Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, India. Afterward, she completed her internship as part of the University of Connecticut Primary Care Internal Medicine program, and her residency at Emory University's Family Medicine program. She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians.
When she isn't caring for patients, Dr. Menon enjoys spending time with her son, practicing yoga, spending time in nature, gardening and practicing photography. She also likes to travel and names the Himalayas and Maine as two of her favorite places. Someday, she hopes to visit Europe and the Swiss Alps. Dr. Menon is fluent in English, Malayalam, Hindi and Tamil.
