Dr. Gajaweera is very kind and helpful. I am grateful that I was referred to her. In our visits, she gave me time to explain the complexities of I was experiencing and asked questions that helped get to the bottom of things. She's one of the best out there.

Awful bedside manner. Made my mom cry and basically told her she was crazy when there turned out to be quite a serious diagnosis. Wouldn’t recommend her to my worst enemy.

Rudest, most arrogant & disrespectful Dr I have ever seen. Codescending in her communications, does not want to take the time, does not welcome questions, cuts you off & interrupts. No class & no professionalism! Lied on my medical report. Dr has no ethics & has a horrible bed side manner. Lots of great neurologists, she is not one of them.
