The Provider of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members.

“Respecting patients, fellow colleagues and others in society is key not only to gain trust but also to provide patient-first care,” Dr. Balasuriya said. “My favorite part of my job is making an impact for the betterment of patients’ lives.”
Dr. Balasuriya’s guiding principles are to always do the right thing, make a difference in patients’ lives, respect everyone around him and be positive. When not working, he can be found ballroom dancing or playing tennis, cricket, board games or golf.
