I am very grateful to have been seen by Dr Jay and to benefit from his caring expertise. - J.T
Dr J lived up to his reputation, a very kind man - C.B
Another Physician had referred to me Dr. J and ease of scheduling was great. Dr.Jayawardena asked a lot of questions of my medical history and then did an examination. He had me sit back in the chair and he explained a lot of different scenarios that could be going on with my underlying mixed connective tissue disease. He suggested we start with an EGD and go from there. He was so patient with me. Very kind in answering my questions and never in a hurry until I was finished and comfortable with our plan of action. - R.W
I had a very good experience. Everyone was very professional and helpful. It was very easy to get my questions answered. - L.D
I am very pleased with the service I received for all of my appointments and outpatient surgery to remove my gall bladder. - M.M
Dr. Jaywardena and entire staff were excellent, caring, and thorough in my care and treatment of a lumpectomy for breast care. - K.A
Dr. Jay was very kind, understanding, and had great patient relation skills. He took the time to listen and was very patient. His expertise, confidence, knowledge and ability to stay humble and kind is very much appreciated. :) Thank you! - K.M
Everyone from check-in to surgery was very nice and professional. Every step was explained to me, so no confusion or questions on my part. - R.V
I was very pleased with my experience. The wait time was not very long. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was very impressed with Dr. Jayawardena. He was very professional and explained everything clearly. - L.D
Wanted an opinion, trusted information I received. - D.M
I was sent to "Dr. J." by my usual physician. I've seen Dr. J. several times in the past with amazing results, so I wasn't worried. I arrived early for my appt. and was taken into the exam room within a few minutes. The nurse was very professional with her pre-exam questions with Dr. J coming in the room a short time later. He asked me several questions and listened to my every concern. He made me feel at ease with his bedside manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I actually left the exam on my original appt. time. How often does that happen? - Mark McArthur
Experience couldn't have gone better entire staff and Dr. were very polite and informative. - R.M
I had a scope on my throat done. The entire staff was quite professional and pleasant. Dr. Jay as usual, was the best. I couldn't have asked for better treatment. Completely professional, kind, and caring. I was very pleased with everything! Thank you all! - B.S
Friendly and helpful. Gave us our options and information. - M.R
While at Mercy Hospital for 9 days, I saw Dr. Jayawardena, his resident, Chris or Don everyday. They always explained everything to me & waited to do surgery in hopes the blockage I had would correct itself, even trying a 24 hour dye to monitor any progress. When that was not to be, Dr. J & his resident, Chris did surgery on a Sunday morning--Mothers' Day which was most impressive as I was the only surgery that morning. My post surgery follow up in the hospital went right according to what the medical staff told me. Upon discharge at my home, I had several questions arise which Dr. J's office answered promptly after checking with him. My experience with Dr. Jayawardena, resident Chris, Don & the entire office staff was outstanding! I gratefully appreciate all you did for me & truly saved my life.Richard L. BaldwinNashua, IA 50658 - R.B
Nurse Mary is very good, so concerned about my case. Someone I'd like to personally know. Dr. Jay defiantly knows what he's talking about, appears to be someone I can trust. Very honest, tells you if he doesn't think he can help you. I like that! Is studying my case. No procedures, yet. - E.S
Thank you to you and all the staff. I felt well taken care of. - L.W
Very happy with the treatment and consultation. Very pleased with the dr. And staff.Hopefully, will be able to get reconnected.Thanks for every thing.Richard deist - R.D
I had a colonospsy on March 14th in Hampton IA at FGH. No problems and recommend Dr Jay. - E.W
Schedule was faster than I thought. I appreciate that. Staff is always informant and polite. Facility is excellent and wait was short and on time.I would recommend him. - P.C
i am very happy with dr. jay and his staff - F.K
Appointment was easy to get and they got me in right away. The appointment went like clockwork, very professional, and everyone was very pleasant. I was going to be out of town the following week for a month so they set up tests that day and the next. I would highly recommend them. - L.W
I was pleased with my entire experience. - C.H
You might update the handouts given by the clinic on how to take the prep. Instructions differed from package of Go Lytly. and both Instructions were slightly different from that given over the phone by the scheduler . this was worrying. Maybe more so to me because I can be a little dyslexic. If I had received just one set of instructions to absorb, it would have removed some stress. - M.K
Dr. J and nursing staff were very thorough and answered all our questions. - D.G
everyone was very nice and very informative - D.B
Every one was nice and smiling and wishing us a Merry Christmas, as we came in, and the thoughtfulness continued throughout the whole time. It was as pleasant as one can be for a procedure like a colonoscopy. I had not seen the new rooms and was very surprised at how nice they were, clean and bright. Thank you for taking care of me - C.O
Great visit and staff - M.H
could have better instructions about before the procedure - J.P
Everything was fine except it took 3 pokes to get the IV in. - D.P
It was very successful. - D.J
Dr. Jay is great! Had a great experience with him as my surgeon. - J.A
Dr. Jayawardena has a gift. He has just the right balance between friendliness, warmth, and professionalism. - G.L
Dr was on time, examination was done properly, I would return to this provider, or recommend him to others.Paul Hauser - P.H
My appointment went well. Hated to hear Dr. J would not be coming to Iowa Falls anymore. But I can still go up to Hampton to doctor with him. Excellent experience for procedure he did. - J.I
Very good hi - D.H
I had to wait longer than I wanted to to schedule surgery, but it all worked out and I had a good experience! - D.H
I liked that Dr. J was straight forward, has a sense of humor and creates an environment of relaxation. He listened to what I had to say and did an amazing job on my surgery. He possesses great skill and is very competent surgeon.Dr. J's nurse (Mary, I believe is her name) was very attentive and did a great job as well.Thank you Dr. J. - H.B
The Hampton Hospital Outpatient Surgery Department Wait Time, Staff, RN (Dee K.), and the Surgical Team I had on June 28th were all extremely very caring, informative and friendly to both myself as a patient and my son who took my down and was my driver to come home. They all made my outpatient surgical experience very relaxing, at ease and positive. After my surgery and I had come out of the anesthesia they were very nice, caring and friendly making sure I was able to swallow properly again and I was feeling well, along with telling me what to expect and to do after I got home (they had also explained it all to my son who said they were really nice and friendly to him). I would recommend Dr. Jayawardena and the Hampton Hospital Outpatient Surgery Department to everyone who asks me. - B.S
I like Dr Jay he has done other surgery will probably be doing my hernia coming up. - R.W
Met with Dr J to review upcoming gallbladder removal surgery. I was concerned that he didn't know from my records that I have leukemia and am actively receiving chemotherapy. This is probably no fault of the doctor, but it did make a difference in one of the lab reports and his hesitation to go ahead with the surgery. - D.W
Good experience all around. This doctor (Dr Jay) is top notch! - B.N
Very efficient and friendly staff. Highly recommended! - C.P
I was very impressed did not get nervous while waiting for the procedure and it healed fast and very well. My doctor did a fine job of operating on me Thank You Jerry Theilen - J.T
Dr J showed concern for my husband. He took the time to explain things in detail to him in a way that he could relate to. - James Lawton
It was easy worse thing was gas in body - Terry Reed
During the surgery everything went fine. All my immediate questions were answered. However, the problem was with the after care of the surgery. I was given no instructions to take home with me, and there were no verbal instructions on what to do for after surgery home care. They only thing I was informed about, was to just keep the area clean. So I had to research online for some general after care instructions. I asked for a doctors note and I had to walk out of the room and up to the nurses station just to remind them to get the note. Other than that, everything else was fine. - J.K
My surgery with Dr Jay went well. My recovery is going well. So I am happy with my experience at Mercy. - G.B
Follow up after a CT Scan.Scheduled a surgery date. - W.G
Colonoscopy done at 2 p.m. On May 3rd, only suggestion I would have is to do them in the morning, it was a long time to go without food or drinks, otherwise excellent care - D.M
I was very satisfied with the out come and the care I received from Dr. Jayawardena and the staff at the hospital. I was surprised at how long it took for my groin area to return to return to normal ( 6 months ) although I was able to return to my serious athletic activity three weeks after the hernia operation....Tks Dr. Jay...... - D.D
It was done in a timely manner. Good communication and questions were answered. I recommend him. - P.C
I always dod Dr J to be through and friendly I feel I can trust him to go a good job with my aurgery - B.M
I had found a lump in my breast, after a mammogram, ultrasound, and by ops you,I met with Dr Jaywardena to discuss next step to take. He recommended I have a mastectomy, when I asked if I could take off both, he aid that was my choice. I felt he knew best what to do and do trust his advice. - D.H
Dr Jay was very professional and caring. - C.B
Dr. Jayawardena looked at my medical problems and scheduled surgery about one month after my appointment. He explained the procedures to me and what had to be completed. Very satisfied!!! - P.V
He answered all my questions and described what he was going to do in detail. Can't wait to get it done! - Connie Holecek
Very frendly & to the point. - J.K
Everything went very well. Third time for this procedure so knew what to expect. Dr. Jay is the greatest surgeon and wouldn't want anyone else. So happy we have a great surgeon that comes to FGH. The surgical facility and staff were excellent. Would recommend Dr.Jay to everyone. - L.B
We were greeted by a friendly receptionist. We arrived early for our appointment but still didn't wait long. The nurse who took my information was specially nice. Dr Jay and the nurse listened carefully and answered our questions. The checkout person made sure that the test I need can be done at FGH. She is now checking to be sure it is covered by my insurance before making the appointment. - B.A

Set up date to have my hernia repaired. - S.G
Removed gall bladder. - M.P
Everything about my colon/polyp surgery was explained to me before surgery - what was going to be removed and how it would be done and what to expect. After surgery I was told what was removed and that surgery went well. In the hospital when Dr. Jaywardena and Dr. Rowe made rounds they explained to me what to expect during my recovery etc. I had to call his office after I returned home because of allergic rash and was advised what to take/use to clear it up. At my followup appt. Dr. Jaywardena answered all my questions. I was very satisfied with my care. I would recommend Dr. Jaywardena to anyone needing surgery! - Pamela Meyer

I couldn't seem to make the "stars" work on this survey. All parts were excellent. I especially appreciated Dr. Jay taking the time to review my situation and possible treatments, and to answer my questions. - K.S
Dr. Jay explained in detail the procedure he would be performing for my hemorrhoids. His nurse Mary answered my questions on a phone call two weeks later. - B.H
I had part of my colon removed by Dr. Jay. As far as I am concerned he is very good at what he does, and does very good follow up. I would recommend him highly. - P.H
Dr. Jay has done several surgeries for me in the past couple years. All of them have been done with the utmost care and thought of patient comfort and care in mind including this last one. His staff were all very courteous and everything was done in a timely manner. They were also very accommodating when I needed to reschedule due to weather. I couldn't have had a better experience through this journey with Dr. Jay or achieved better results anywhere else!
