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!

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 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!"
