i have been on benzos long term and my biggest worry when seeing him was being completely cut off but he continued my dosage, we talked about many different kinds of medications in the past and xanax/ativan have been the only drugs working for my severe stress and anxiety. i am very happy he agreed to continue my dose. based on my review and experience no one should come here simply expecting to get narcotics out of him or any other doctor for that matter, as a psychiatrist i HIGHLY recommend dr shivkumar pandian to anyone struggling with any kind of stress or panic/anxiety disorders

This was my first time seeing Dr. Pandian. I have ADHD. I was a little nervous going in to the appointment because of the stigma behind mental health issues. I was afraid he wouldn't believe me, or make me go through extensive testing since it's been several years since I've been treated. He did ask questions to verify that I do, in fact, have ADHD, but he never made me feel like I was wrong or lying. He explained the disorder to me and how the medications work. I'm breastfeeding, so he took the time to verify that the medications will be safe for both my baby and me. He then gave me options and sent me off with a prescription. My only criticism is that I think he could have shown more empathy instead of only approaching it from an analytical standpoint. This didn't make it a bad experience for me since I'm an analytical person myself, but I do think it would have improved my experience if he had.

I highly recommend Dr. Pandian. He is the best doctor I have had so far. I will continue to go to him--even though he is about a 45 minute drive, it is worth the drive for me. Dr. Pandian is a kind, understanding doctor who is accommodating. In the past, I have been very intimidated by some doctors. I feel very comfortable going to Dr. Pandian.

Dr Pandian is the most knowledgeable And he is not an alarmist. Always listens and remembers every one in detail If he adds a medicine if it is not working. He drops it right away. Many of my old Doctors would keep me on a medicine even though there was bad side effects. Not Dr Pandian

The visit went well. We discussed past and current issues, where Dr. P. tried to come up with solutions and plans to follow. He attentively listened, heard both of our concerns (mine; mother and my son's; patient). When my son felt like Dr. P. was taking my side, he reassured him that was not the case and pretty much talked my son off the ledge, as he was considering stopping his visits with him. Dr. P. let him know that he was thankful he was willingly taking his meds and tried to offer him encouragement to decrease his smoking. He always provide his professional opinion to questions that arise, never leaving me to wonder if he is the right doctor for my son. He is definitely the best doctor for him and I highly recommend him for others.

I've been visiting Dr. Pandian for close to a year now. And I plan on continuing to see him. I've never waited more than 15 minutes past my appointment time. He listens to your symptoms and concerns and comes up with a detailed plan, explaining every part, and often times writing it down for you. He never talks down to you or passes judgement like other doctors have. I'm confident in his abilities to treat me. All in all 5 stars!
