Restore Wellness and Aesthetics in downtown Franklin celebrated a ribbon cutting on Thursday, in partnership with Williamson, Inc.
Located in the 231 Public Square office building above Ruby Sunshine, Dr. Sujay Kumar, MD and Dr. Sowmini Oomman, MD, PhD opened Restore Wellness and Aesthetics in late June.
The couple serves as the owners and supervising physicians of the business, which offers services ranging from wellness to aesthetics treatments.
“We’re incorporating our knowledge of medicine along with wanting people to look good and beautiful outwardly and also from within,” Oomman said.
Oomman is a triple board certified neurologist, with certifications in neurology, sleep medicine and epilepsy. She trained at the University of Arkansas for Medical Science. Prior to receiving her medical training in neurology, she earned her Doctorate of Philosophy in physiology (Ph.D.) from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) at Lubbock.
Kumar is board certified in family medicine by the American Academy of Family Practice. He trained at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He is a physician who has practiced for over 13 years in Arkansas, Nebraska and in Tennessee.
Before moving to Franklin, both doctors worked for a practice in Dickson, Tennessee.
The couple met in 2006 during orientation for their residency training at a hospital in Arkansas.
“[Sujay] came in late for the orientation,” Oomman said. “[Sujay] thought he was the only one that was late, then I walked in, probably 10 minutes after him, and that’s when he saw me for the first time.”
The couple has been married for 10 years, and they have one son with autism. The diagnosis inspired the couple to come up with a vision to help others who may be going through a similar experience of thinking where their child may work in the future when they reach adulthood.
Through their business, the couple hopes to fund a future nonprofit to help adults with autism find employment opportunities.
“The reason we started this unique place is because we have a 5-year-old son with autism,” Kumar said. “We hope to provide jobs for adults with autism.”
Some of the couple’s ideas include opening a software company for those with high-functioning intellectual abilities, and opening a car wash for those with low- functioning intellectual abilities.
“There is a mission behind this business,” Kumar said.
Restore Wellness and Aesthetics is located at 231 Public Square, suite 204, in Franklin.
