Dr. Amaratunge is great! She’s very personable and I truly like her. Her clinical staff are outstanding! Her best medical assistant just left so I’m hoping her replacement is just as good!

Dr Amararunge,, MD was so professional, but very nice and considerate to my mother situation. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was handled properly. I highly recommend her.

Dr Amaratunge listens to her patients explain their issues. She will also pose other questions if she did not hear enough details. She will order appropriate test when needed. I have felt confident as a patient with her decision. She is a great doctor with excellent bedside manners.

C.W. Google

Dr Amaratunge is excellent in all ways- patient concern, patient education on options & choices and she listens. As a surgeon she is thorough with feedback before, day of and after surgery.
