Dr Goonetilleke has been nothing but outstanding in the diagnosis and care of my sons Congenital Hypothyroidism. He has treated our family with the utmost respect and each and every appointment, explaining the condition and course of treatment at an appropriate level and including us in the decision making process. At diagnosis he was clear, comprehensive and supportive in what was a particularly challenging time for my family. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
