Dr. Priyantha S Ranaweera has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I didn't know I was having a heart attack

A trip to the ER had doctors running a blood test to see if I was having a heart attack. I was. Dr. Ranaweera was in the building and he quickly gave a diagnoses - blockage. After meeting with, Dr. Ranaweera put me on his heart catherization schedule and did the procedure. No stents or balloons were needed, just medicine. Dr. Ranaweera and his team, especially nurse Wally, were wonderful and put me at ease. And I needed that understand because I had a bad day and found out that Nitro glycerin and I do not agree. I had a horrible reaction to that medicine. Spent one night in the hospital then home. I will be seeing Dr. Ranaweera in the next few days for a follow up.

Not a fan

They wrote down the wrong time on our confirmation sheet then made us wait an hour because they gave my spot away. It would have been okay had they not forgotten about us in the waiting room and blamed us for the mistake when they wrote it on our confirmation. We didn't see the doctor for over an hour because they had to 'fit us in' for their mistake.

Poor Follow-up

This doctor does not follow up. I had tests run and had to call three times to get any kind of feedback, even from the techs. It was difficult to get the receptionist to schedule a follow-up visit with the doctor. From the time I was referred until I saw the doctor for a follow-up was six weeks.
