I took my dad to see Dr Rasi. He is smart, kind, caring and very compassionate. He has a very busy waiting room, and despite having to wait for a long time to see him, I was happy that when we sat with him he gave us his undivided attention despite it was past his office closing time. I don't think they make doctors like him anymore. no question he's the best cardiologist - and the best doctor i've ever had for my family. Christine and Kassie in his office are total gems to work with.

Excellent Doctor. Very trustworthy.

Dr Wickramsinghe is one of the best doctors I've been to. I found him based on the reviews here and I absolutely see why this is the case. His clinic staff is wonderful and were very courteous. I had to wait about 20 minutes to see him, but it was well worth the wait. He took his time with me and answered all my questions, and even gave his cell phone number to reach him. I've contacted him by text many times and he responds immediately. Probably one of the best heart docs in Houston.

I went to see Dr Rasi because I was sent to him from the Telfair Memorial Herman Urgent Care. He saw me almost immediately and was very thorough. I loved the fact that he didn't write or type anything while I was in the office. It was a detailed face to face discussion. He has very good bedside manner, is very smart and even followed up with me by phone after I left. I have not met a doctor like him in Sugar Land, and I have been singing his praises to my family since then.

Dr Rasi is wonderful. I'm hoping it's the same doctor that I saw since the first name here is different (he said his name is Rasi). He is very kind, very smart. Probably one of the best cardiologists in Houston.

I went to see Dr Rasi because my father was seen by him at the Memorial hospital in sugar land. Wow, what a doctor. My last cardiologist in west houston spent literally 5 minutes staring into his iPad checking off boxes with me before waving me off. He was a completely different doctor. Very smart, very sharp and spent like 30 minutes with me in his office without writing anything down. And he gives his cell phone to his patients to call for an emergency. Now my wife switched to him too.

This is a fantastic doctor. His name is difficult to pronounce. He goes by Dr Rasi which I think is his nickname, but don't let that name fool you. He is an incredibly compassionate, talented and wonderful physician. We are very blessed to have him as our mother's cardiologist.
