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!

Dr. P. Is so well-trained. He not only explained to me mechanisms of the medications, he was very open to all the concerns I had and really made sure I was given every option to make my own choices in my care. He informs his patients on all aspects of therapeutic care. He NEVER over medicates, he genuinely has a professional compassion for his patients and his office is clean, neat and very confidential.

Dr. Pandian is great; he works with you to find the best medication for you and even wrote me a prescription for a "plan B" trial medication in case what I'm currently trying doesn't work. That way, if indeed to try a new medicine, I don't have to make another appointment! The wait time here is nonexistent; I was 10 minutes late and still got in within a minute or two!

Dr. Pandian made me feel comfortable for a first time patient and was very attentive to my concerns. He was very helpful at creating a plan to help with my anxiety and also aiming for a future goal in pin pointing any issues/concerns I have in figuring out a solution to my anxiety/adhd. Thank you Dr. for an informative first time meeting.

Dr. Pandian is a very energetic doctor. He gets right down to business, and is very knowledgeable about his specialty. He was able to answer all of my questions, so that I could understand the answers. He was interested in me, and genuinely wanted to help me manage my issues. I did not feel rushed at all, in fact, I felt that if I wanted to keep talking he did too. He actually listened to me, unlike other doctors, and we came up with a treatment plan together that has worked well. I definitely recommend this doctor to anyone who is able to participate in their own treatment, and willing to try new solutions to old problems. I guess in short, "He knows his stuff!"

If you want a psychiatrist that truly cares about his patients and their overall well being, then Dr. Pandian is the way to go. He is extremely intelligent and understanding, he wants to make sure his patients understand why he is prescribing one medication over another one. Not too many psychiatrists will take the time to explain every detail with you. However, Dr. Pandian will. He puts his patients first, returns your calls if you have any concerns and will make sure you leave the appointment with a plan. I'm very picky about my doctors, and I am so thankful to have him as my psychiatrist.

Visit went well...he listens to you first, then provides his professional knowledge! We were given another recommendation to help with his addiction, although I am always skeptical about anything over the counter (just don't believe it will work as good as those prescribed), but I trust Dr. Pandian and will adhere to whatever he recommends.
