He is not an interventionist, which is fantastic Looked at my X-rays, did some manual tests, couldn't find anything major, and so simply prescribed some pills and physio. Asked me to come back a month later if I still had pain.This is fantastic. He's not intervening with the natural process of healing, and will pull out the big guns only when it's serious. Good doctor, hard to find non-interventionists these days!

Great doc, but very long wait time. My first visit I waited 90 mins in the waiting room, and another 30 minutes in a patient room. For my follow up, I waited 45 mins. Aside from the 'overbooking' problem, the doctorwas friendlly, knowledgeable, and listened to all of my concerns.

I visited a few weeks ago due to a sports injury and had to return for another issue today. Compared to my first visit I felt pretty rushed this time around.

Dr Seneviratne makes it immediately clear that he is a true expert, experienced, thorough, and approachable. He takes his time with his patients and really examines the problem area completely. He took the time to explain the tests and physicalfindings and what they mean. He was also willing to make a treatment plan with my input and was very clear about my limitations and diagnosis. I will definitely return with any other sports medicine issues I have.

Dr. Seneviratne took the time to listen and explain why things may be happening. He emphasized the need to do some tests before jumping to conclusions, which I found refreshing (given my past experience with another orthopedist). He was alsovery honest and pragmatic in the way he explained things to me. I truly appreciate how gentle and understanding he was with me throughout the appointment. I didn't feel rushed by him or his staff (who were also more than wonderful!). Thank you Dr. Seneviratne for such a great experience! I would recommend him in a heart beat!

Could have cut down the amount of appointments by scheduling an MRI initially, but overall he's nice and tries other options before looking at surgery.

Outstanding surgeon, compassionate doctor, and always cautious when it comes to suggesting surgery. Very highly recommended. Dr. S. repaired my severely torn shoulder labrum last year with excellent post-op results. And the year beforethat, he had repaired a torn and infected Achilles tendon that had previously been operated on by another surgeon. It was Dr. S. who took one look at the scar from that previous surgery and said, "It's infected." (The previous surgeon had insisted it was not infected.) After blood work with an Infectious Disease confirmed the infection, Dr. S. removed the (wrong) sutures the previous doc had used. I would trust Dr. S. with my own children if they needed surgery!

Great bedside manners! I had right knee surgery for a radius tendon repair. He took the time to explain my MRI results and the surgery. On the day of the surgery, he took the time to call that evening to se how I was doing. Surgery went great! Speedy recovery.
