Each office visit is personable and informative. She takes her time and explains everything. The colonoscopy was quick and painless—she’s there when you awaken to give you details and she has great bedside manners!! I’m glad I found Dr Amaratunge—-she’s the BEST!!

I have seen Dr Chami Amaratunge for several years. I had some stomach issues the last couple of months. Call and got an appointment within a few days. She is running test to find the problem. I am able to ask questions & get the test results over the portal. Great way to keep up with everything.
