in Bakersfield, CA |
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.
