After 20 years with the same primary care physician, we felt lost when he retired. He referred us to Dr. Samarasinghe who we had met only once. After my husband's an my first appointment, I feel that we are in good hands. He was up-to-date on our histories, used the professional literature when describing his recommendations, and listened to our concerns. I am looking forward to a positive relationship, joint decision-making, and treatment that is consistent with evidence-based practice.

Dr. Sam is highly competent, personable and thorough in his treatment of the whole person. He listens well, does not rush and is straight-forward in his assessments and recommendations. He oversees my all my medical needs, makes sure all tests and vaccinations are scheduled, and when a specialist is required, he has a field of medical experts to refer. I can't speak more highly of Dr. Samarasinghe.

Dr. Samarasinghe has treated both my Grandmother as well as my mother. He was absolutely fabulous for both. His bedside manner is unmatched and it is so rare to get a doctor you can trust these days.
