Dr. 

Ruwani Gunawardane

MD

31.5mi
Neurologist

I started having terrible daily headaches and sore neck since Jan. this year. While the only thing I did differently was hitting the weights pretty hard in the gym, I went to half dozen different doctors, including two ENTs and two neurologists and no one could figure out what was causing my pain. I felt helpless and desperate for my situation because all these doctors just want to put me on different medications that made me felt worse. Finally, I came cross Dr. Gunawardane’s profile online and I decided to see schedule an appointment to see her because of her vast experiences as a neurologist, I’m glad I did because she saved my life. My first appointment with Dr. G in April, she immediately noticed that my headaches came from my neck so she personally scheduled a cervical MRI for me for the very same day so I can be properly diagnosed. She also gave me her personal cell phone number so I can keep in touch with her. I’ve never had a doctor who gave his/her personal cell number before and I was absolutely in tears that I finally found a doctor who really cared about me, not just a patient but as a friend or family. Long story short, my MRI came back that showed a large herniated disc in my neck at c5 6, which was compressing/flattening my spinal cord and spinal nerve and there was virtually no flow of cerebral spinal fluid at the point of the herniation. One little fall/accident I was looking at being paralyzed from the neck down for the rest of my life. Petrified, I texted Dr. G right away with my MRI report and she called me right back and scheduled an appointment with her husband who happens to be a pain management specialist and a great doctor the very next day. A month later, due to the severity of my disc herniation, I had a disc replacement surgery at Georgetown University Hospital and is currently recovering from my surgery. Not a day goes by I don’t think about what Dr. G did for me and what could have happened to me if I didn’t find her in time. I’m beyond thankful to Dr. G, she’s an angel, watching over my shoulders. She saved me and my family, my two little kids can still have a functioning father today because of her, I’m truly in debt to her for saving me and you will not find a better doctor in this country or anywhere else.
