    My Mom, Janice, saw Dr. Gunawardana Internist, and believes she is the most thorough, knowledgeable, and compassionate doctor. She only wishes her other doctors were as kind and competent. She would highly recommend her!

    This physician has no compassion, competence, or communication skills. She does not listen to her patients or acknowledge their concerns. She is careless and does not pay careful attention to patients' care. I would absolutely not recommend this physician to any individual!
