Dr. Weerasinghe believes in treating every patient with compassion, as if they were family. He believes his role as a surgeon is the best profession in the world because it allows him to not only help heal people, but also to bring them comfort and provide a cure for their suffering.
Outside of his work, he enjoys spending quality time with his children and lovely wife. Family is very important to Dr. Weerasinghe, so he makes it a priority for he and his family to share at least one meal a day together to stay connected. They also love traveling to different parts of the world to experience different cultures and enjoy doing volunteer work in Asia, including establishing free medical clinics and building houses for victims of the tsunami in 2005.
