WHO WE ARE
We are thrilled to offer Sarasota and its neighboring counties a medical practice that provides compassionate personalized medical care to patients of all ages.
Our goal is to ensure our patients achieve their optimal health by practicing evidence based medicine, which allows our patients to receive the most up to date medical care.
In our practice we strive to treat the person rather than just the disease. We strongly focus on preventative care as well as being available for same day appointments for acute medical conditions.
Being a small independently run practice we value the relationships we build with our patients. We look forward to meeting and collaborating with each patient to develop an individualized medical care plan.
Farah was born and raised in Trinidad. At the age of 13 she emigrated to Florida with her family. Upon graduating from the University of Central Florida, she went on to complete her Masters in Medical Science in Physician Assistant studies at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale.
Farah’s first position as a Physician Assistant was with a clinic for the uninsured. She then took a position with Sarasota Memorial Hospital and spent 6 years practicing Internal Medicine. Farah is now focusing her career in Aesthetic Medicine. Her hope is to make patients feel better through health, wellness and aesthetic management. Farah is also an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at Florida State University’s Physician Assistant Program.
Farah and Dr. Kalnoky have been married since 2015 and have three young children, a dog and one cat. In her spare time she can be found at one of the beautiful Florida beaches building sandcastles with the kids or attending the kids’ many social activities. Her other passions are traveling, scuba diving and focusing on health and wellness.
Dr. Achilles Kalnoky was born in Prague, Czech Republic to a Greek mother and Hungarian father and when he was young his family emigrated to the United States settling in New Jersey. His love of travel and adventure brought him back to Prague after high school for medical school. Upon completion of his medical studies, he worked in the United Kingdom and later returned to the U.S. to complete a residency in Family Medicine at Central Michigan University in Saginaw, Michigan. Spending three long winters in Michigan convinced Dr. Kalnoky to join his parents in sunny Florida after graduation. But he did take one last detour, working as a family doctor in New Zealand before finally settling in Sarasota in 2013.
Before opening Gulf Gate Family Medicine in 2016, Dr. Kalnoky worked locally for a clinic for the uninsured and then as an Urgent Care Physician at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Dr. Kalnoky is Board Certified in Family Medicine as well as an Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at Florida State University Medical School.
He lives with his wife Farah, a Physician Assistant, and their three young children. In his spare time, he enjoys beautiful Florida beaches, travel, biking, tennis, kayaking, and scuba diving. He is also a violinist with the Tampa Symphony performing with the orchestra throughout the year.
