I have been seeing Dr. Sam for several years and find his demeanor and care are above grade in all areas. Thanks Dr, Sam for the good care during our time together. I have recommended Dr. Sam and those individuals appear happy with their treatment as well.

My grandparents started with him, my mom and I now go to see Dr. Sam. I had a medical condition that the symptoms we're very crazy and all over the place but Dr. Sam was able to diagnose and continues to help treat me for. Love him and his staff you can't find a better place to go to when needing medical care. You may have to wait to see him but it's due to him giving 100% to every patient not a time limit on anyone.

Dr Ratnayake is the epitome of what a medical provider should be time 10! He never makes his patients feel rushed during exams. He is caring to a fault sometimes. I have on occasion rec'd calls from him in addition to him taking my calls to discuss my condition. This is unheard of today to have a physician you can access. He is thorough, after many misdiagnosis from prior Drs, Dr Sam was the only one to give a correct diagnosis (later confirmed via testing) He has saved my life, literally.

He listens and hears what the patients says, he is very supportive. He encourages you to ask questions and explains everything to you so that you understand what the issue is, His staff is the best.
