Verified Patient Reviews
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 man knows his stuff.
Excellent Doctor. Explained everything I wanted to know in a straight forward understandable manner. Very open to questions and to addressing my concerns
I highly recommend Dr. Shivkumar Pandian! He was very attentive to me @ all times. He explained everything to me in the simplest form. I really enjoyed my session & look forward to all future sessions!
Very informative and pleasant Dr. He took the time to explain my condition and what treatment plan we were going to take. Highky recommendable
Dr Pandian was amazing. He sat me down and explained everything in detail and let me chose the right medicine for me which most doctors don't do. He was very attentive and answered all of my questions in detail.
Very good. Listens to his patients.
Best Doctor I have ever had. i have had many- He always remembers me by name and details of previoius meetings He never rushes you and gages the time spent with the need. I would give him a 10 out of 10 he is never more than 15 minutes late and that is rare. always knows what to do
Very professional, carasmatic for your predicament.pleasure associating with him.
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.
Dr. Pandian was friendly and listened to what I had to say. He is knowledgeable about the medications that I had been taking and suggested a reasonable care plan for me.
He sincerely care about his patient.
Overall a good visit. Prompt, to the point, and explained everything as he went. I will be going back!
Great doctor... Very knowledgeable and very helpful. I would recommend Dr. Pandian
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Pandian and I very much appreciated his attentiveness to my specifics needs. He is excellent at answers questions regarding medications and offers his advice at different types of treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Pandian.
He is the best Doctor I have ever seen in 35 years of treatment. I have been seeing him for about a year and i have imporved in many ways. i am going back to school. I have my mind back and my emotions back. I can think and be a human being again. I am no longer a zombie from too many medications You will not be dissapointed with this Doctor
He was great!! I suffer from depression and anxiety and he was able to help me find the best medicine for me and was so understanding and explained everything he made me feel so comfortable definitly will be going back!
Very professional, concise, and comforting visit. Overall great experience
I needed a new dr because mine retired. I feel fine on the meds I have been taking for years. I needed med management. I got it! He explained things to me in a way that was not condescending and he let me take part in my treatment. He's my new guy!!!!
Dr. Pandian is extremely professional and personable. I was running late for my appointment and he took the time out of his busy schedule to come see me. He goes above and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend him.
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!
He's a great doctor. Took the time to listen and explain things. Very good and positive experience.
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.
Excellent Doctor Best Psychiatrist I have seen In many years I
Really nice guy and very knowledgeable. Wait time wasn't long at all either.
Excellent. Exceptional doctor.
Great doctor who is excellent in explaining medications and truly wants the best for his patient. Clearly so knowledgeable about medication interactions and what is needed for his patient based on their specific diagnoses.
Very professional. Explained treatment in detail and took time to answer any questions/concerns.
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.
Excellent recall of history and desire to pay close attention to detail. Each appointment reamirms our plan for my treatment.
Understanding and kind man
Best Psychiatrist I have ever seen
Very nice personable... the only psychiatrist I felt every really listened to me. Made me feel very welcome and didn't down play my concerns or make me feel insignificant. This guy is the best no question!
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!"
Great doctor! highly recommend!
I have been seeing him for a year and he has helped me so much. He is very patient and so incredibly smart. Highly recommend ed
Excellent doctor. Best I have had in my life
I love dr. Pandiun... He is super helpful and cares greatly in his patients care .
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.
This doctor ask a lot of questions to determine if the prescribed medication is working as intended, and he spends time educating patients.
Incredible attention to detail. Listens and explains better than any doctor I have had before.
Dr. Pandian has become a trusted healthcare partner of mine and I would recommend him to anyone in need of his help.
I like Dr Pandriam because is really professional, and make me feel comfortable.
Probably one of the best doctors I've seen. He was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what was going on with me. Found the medicine that makes my life normal again. Thanks dr pandian.
Great doctor, very thorough with information.
A very good appointment. MD took his time with us. He was a good listener and gave excellent direction
I was diagnosed with Refractory Depression in 1988. Every physician who treated me did so with 1 mediation at a time. Sometimes they worked; sometimes not. Fall of 2015 I tried to commit suicide; when I "came to", Dr. Pandian was standing next to my bed; I grabbed his hand and said "Please help me"; he replied "I will help you." And he has. It took us a year to find the exact right "cocktail" of meds for me, but we did it! I have been considering taking a position outside of Chicago; 1 of the major things holding me back is I would lose Dr. Pandian. He is the first physician in 30 years to get to the bottom of my depression & deal with it. As far as I am concerned, if he had wings & a halo, he would fly!
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.
Listened to me in detail. Great staff too.
I have to say in the years that I have been seeing Dr. Pandian, I have been very thoroughly satisfied and extremely happy with his professionalism, his patience, his knowledge of medicine and of course, his bedside manner. But as of late, he has treated me terrible on account of him blaming me for other doctors and pharmacists recommendations and questioning me about how he prescribes medicine lately. The last appointment that I had 2 days ago was the worst appointment I've ever had with him and will probably be my last I hope that he sees this review because I am seeking out a different psychiatrist he has threatened to drop me twice on account of major problems that I have encountered in my life this past year and I do understand that he's not a therapist butt he is blaming me for other doctors opinions and other pharmacist opinions and I find that to be very unfair. And I just wanted to say his office staff on a scale of 1 to 10 10 being the best I would have to say his office staff is at 2 one of the worst as far as call Black and keeping me up to date on him getting back to me when I call. Now as far as pointment reminders I would have to give it a 10 very very good butt I have to say this is not a dr. You want to cross meaning what he says is scripture and when he prescribes medication he doesn't want other doctors opinions, he doesn't want to hear about other pharmacists or other people's opinions on how he practices and prescribes medication. So the main reason why I'm leaving his practice as a patient is I don't deserve to be talked to vanity professional especially a doctor that I'm paying a lot of money too, that he practically kicked me out of his office!!!!! So on that note, I have to say goodbye to dr. Pandian. I'm very disappointed with Dr. Pandian and I feel I deserve an apology.
Great doctor! The wait time is very short and its very easy to get an appointment. Dr. Pandian is very throughough and is willing and able to answer any questions you have. He also makes sure you get the right medication for you needs and works with you as much as possible.
Dr. Pandian is very concerned in treating and addressing all issues. I am very satisfied with him as my physician.
Dr. Pandian took the time to give me his background and ask me questions about mine. The doctor explained a lot to me about how my medications work and other nuances that past doctors have not taken the time to explain to me.
Simple efficient and understanding.
Intuitive and knowledgeable!
Dr. Pandian is truly a gifted physician. I have been under the care of a psychiatrist for the past 25 years. I have never, ever been "taught" about my illness and "why" it was being prescribed to me. I, of course, have done a significant amount of research. But, I have never understood completely my treatment plan. Today I learned "how" each of my medications impacts my mind. He uses a yellow small legal pad to describe the effects of my medications on my mind. His verbal description as he was drawing made it crystal clear to me, for the first time, the methodology behind his psychiatric plan.Today was my first appointment with him. He is through, intelligent, keenly aware of my thought processes, kind and explains everything in a manner that I can truly understand. He answered all of my questions very clearly. I left his office today with complete knowledge of my diagnosis and his treatment plan. I am thankful that I have been referred to him. I look forward to walking this road with him…he is an excellent doctor to rely on.
I credit Doctor Pandian with saving me from a severe depression. He was patient and listened, and understood my concerns with different side effects until we found the right medication.
Efficient, thorough and understanding Psychiatrist. Would recommend him to anyone requiring assistance.
This was my first appointment with Dr Pandian. I was very nervous but he put me at ease. He asked me how I have been treated in the past for my issues, and what my medication history was. He was very straightforward, and I appreciated that. I will definitely be going back.
The visit with Dr Pandian was great as always. He makes you and other guests feel welcomed. He really listens to what you are experiencing and looks for things that could help, which is not always, more medicine. Dr Pandian is awesome! He truly cares about his patients' well being. I really enjoy our visits and believe others will feel the same. Keep up the great work doc and please, don't ever change professions. We need more doctors like you!!!
Dr. Pandian is the ideal textbook doctor. He asks QUESTIONS to understand you. He'll offer lifestyle, diet, and general advice to help remedy the problems instead of simply writing you a prescription. He cares, he will listen and really understand you. I see him take diligent notes in his computer.
attentive. Very flexible. Nice guy.
I loved the fact that i have been trying to describe the issues i have been having to other physicians and before i even completed my sentence he finished describing what i was going to say....instantly gained my confidence...and he took the time to help me understand what the root cause was and how we would work towards resolution!
Dr. Pandian truly understands the patient's short and long-term goals to deliver a level of psychiatric care above and beyond my expectations. My quality of life has continuously improved through his thorough knowledge and guidance.
Always a great visit! Doctor has a wonderful bedside manor.
excellent doctor, really listens to the patients and makes helpful recommendations with a full explanation why.
I have great admiration and respect for the work of Dr. Pandian and would highly recommend him to everyone! This doctor truly care about the health and well-being of his patients. He conducts himself in a very courteous and professional manner. During our last visit, Dr. Pandian listened with much empathy and sought to come up with solutions to my son's problems. I was ready to return him to a nursing home, but doctor Pandian provided me with the hope that he is not there yet and that we still have time to work with him. I pray that Dr. Pandian continues to care for my son for as long as he has this illness. I wouldn't want him to be cared for by anyone other than him.
Dr Pandian expresses sincere interest in my health and well being. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He wished me a Happy Birthday today, as well as, a wish for me to celebrate responsibly. I'm truly happy we found him!
I was really concerned that a medical or family history wasn't taken, and that only 15 minutes were spent on me as a new patient.
A caring and fantastic physician who is thorough and asks detailed questions. Very rare in this field and I feel very lucky to have found him.
It was quick and convenient but he was knowledgable and interested and instructive as well.
The visit for my son went extremely well. I learned a lot and truly appreciated Dr Pandian's explanation of things. I believe my son is NOW in good hands and look forward to his knowledge, care and help for my son.
I have seen hi several times now and will continue to see him over the long term. He will prescribe the appropriate medications and is an expert at developing long term treatment programs, and is not afraid to try medications to see if they help, and if they do not, he has a back up plan. If you have had discouragement, disappointment, or have felt your psychiatric care is not what it could be, then i would recommend booking an appointment with Dr. Pandain ASAP since he probably wont be taking new patients soon.
He really listens and tries to help and cater to your needs.
Best doctor I've been to so far, and I've been to a lot!! So happy I found him on ZocDoc. I love that he has Saturday hours so I don't have to take off work. Ive been having a lot of trouble sleeping and other issues, he truly takes the time and listens to everything you have to say. After trial and error, we've finally found a medication that works for me. He always says if something comes up that I could call him. I've reccommeded him to a few people and they have all thanked me! There is also no way you would miss an appointment because they call and remind you a few days before which is great. Staff is very nice and friendly. He never over schedules appointments, I pretty much walk in and he sees me right away. It surprised me because he is such a great doctor, you'd think the line would be out the door!
Very knowledgeable. Clearly explained each of my medications and why I'm on them. Focuses on disease management instead of just treating symptoms.
Beyond excellent. He taught me the systems and reasons for my disorder and change my medication. I would recommend him to anyone. My last appointment I was out of town and drove five hours just to keep this appointment. That should tell everyone how much I appreciate and would recommend him to the world. I know a little dramatic but you get the point!
The only doctor that helped me get to where I am today. Totally functional depression has been gone for a year.
Dr. Shivkumar Pandian was an excellent listener he helped me with my problems the waiting time is less then ten minutes! I recommend this doctor to everyone also
Very pleasant, professional doctor. He really listens to you.
I thought Dr. Pandian was very nice, professional, and intelligent. I needed to see a Dr to get a refill on a prescription that my primary psychiatrist could not write for me because I could not get an appointment in a reasonable time. It was a simple visit, but Dr. Pandian took care of my needs, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a psychiatric professional. I also did not have to wait long to see him. I'm pretty sure he had to wait a few minutes for me to finish filling out a form or two. :)
Dr. Pandian clearly knows his stuff. He does a great job of explaining exactly what he thinks will help you. Any medicine he prescribes, he goes into excellent detail about how the medicine should work, both in terms of the effects it will have, and how it actually works with your body and brain to get these results. Most importantly, he makes sure you are comfortable with what he is prescribing.
Dr. Pandian is a warm, friendly, and understanding guy, and I felt comfortable talking to him about my depression. If you're having any mental trouble and think that you may need professional help, give Dr. Pandian a try. Chances are that he'll be about to help you out. Good luck!
Simply the BEST!
He is very friendly and looks out for the needs of his patients. I didn't feel like he was pushing pills. I felt like he listened to my needs and was very patient in helping me find the right medication for me. His office staff is also friendly and they are very prompt about calling in prescriptions.
I had a great experience with Dr. Pandian. He was through and took time to answer all my questions, I felt very comfortable and reassured after meeting with him.
Dr. Pandian took the time to thoroughly explain everything. I was impressed with his bedside manner and his ability to ease any nervousness one may feel when seeing a psychiatrist.
He was very thorough, asked the correct questions, and explained everything well
Dr Pandian continually listened to my problems, understood them and together we formed a plan to have a better quality of life. Mentally I have never felt better.
I have been seeing Dr. Panadian for about a year, everything has been going great. I feel he violated my privacy by accepting a phone call from my mother, who has substance abuse issues herself when I first starting seeing him I was on Methadone within one month I was off that drug which I was put on 12 years ago due to several diffterent medical issues. I suffer from Generalized aniexty disorder, Obsessive compulsive disorder, and Agoraphobia!!!!! He has always been polite to me and ever since the phone call his attitude has changed toward me!!!!! he violated the hippa law which doctors aren't allowed to do. its hear say and has no actually basis. I have been completely up front and honest with him. And it hurts my feeling that he would take her word over mine without even knowing her. if your accused of something there should be evidence to back it up!!!!!
I am very happy with him. Unlike other doctors in his field I did not feel like he was just there to write a script and send me on my way. He took the time to explain my medications and why they are the best for me and my health. I could not be happier with him
My visit was the best experience I have shared with a medical professional. He took the time to explain my illness. I will gladly recommend him to any and every one I know or encounter.
Very professional - i didn't know what to expect from a first visit - he listened to me and then laid out options very thoroughly and with a good bit of detail explaining the pros/cons & why's for each.
CREME DE LA CREME
He seemed to know problem immediately and understood without any long drawn out stories to be told. He said things that no other doctor had recognized. Thought he was great! Would recommend him to anyone having struggles. Brian
He is very passionate about his work! Every time I leave an office visit, I am very encouraged about my treatment plan.He also makes very difficult medical terminology easy to understand, He not only tells you that a medication can help you, but explains how it works.He is the best psychiatrist I have EVER had!
Receptionist very busy but very courteous. Seems that she does some scheduling . Dr. Pandian very knowledgeable of meds and side effects. Listens. Open to treatment planning. Great at discussing next steps of planning g and sharing reailulources with patients.
Dr. Pandian is always understanding and his staff is great as well. Great with follow up. I feel I'm actually cared about there.
Makes eye contact in a way doctors who are actually listening do. Listens and has your best interest in mind.
Dr. Pandian is an amazing Doctor he is very caring, understating and he really gives his patients and their loved ones the hope of getting better and the motivation to keep going thank you so muchhh
Was very kind and explained everything very thoroughly
Very informative. You could tell he was searching for the right regiment of medications without over medicating me. Very kind.
Really knows his stuff! Would highly recommend.
For the most part, kept me on the same medications. Explains everything very well. Best Doctor I have dealt with in ages.
Very professional. Dr pandian gets to the point and figures out what needs to be done quickly and effectively.
Him and his office staff are very cordial and accommodating they even took us in running late you will feel at ease there he is extremely knowledgeable and down to earth. He is also a very gracious and his concern for others is obvious. I pray I never have to go to anyone but him. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff and I'm a registered nurse.
Very professional and explained the side effects and what I should look out for very thoroughly
Extremely knowledgeable about why medications work and we developed a plan together for treatment. He is returns any questions or concerns that I have. Great Doctor
Auto missed appt
He was very polite and understanding. Easy appointment booking and the girls up front were nice.
Explained things throughly and we had a great first meeting. He wants me to feel better and has a plan to do so.
I appreciated Dr. Pandian's medical approach right from the start, As I could tell He was not only clearly very knowlegeable about he was talking about, but didn't speak down to me and explaied to me in a thorough easy to understand process for beginning treatment, where he even wrote down on paper a quick and easy stradegy of how my courses of treatment will be measured and made sure I understood. I recommend Dr. Pandian and he seems to be genuine in finding apprpriate solutions and takes into consideration the patient's perspectivev and overview of progress, and listens and follows your concerns and desires out of treatment and medication eperience to be on the same page.
He is attentive, takes the time to listen to you, and explains things thoroughly. I highly recommend him.
Seems knowledgeable about medications and side effects. Offers treatment choices that I may want. Willing to try new treatment plans based on my needs.
Literally saved my life. Dr. P asked me questions about my symptoms in a way no other doctor ever had. He does never assumed how I felt he always asked directly. Other doctors treated me based on my actions which Dr. P and I agree are not a symptom of illness but rather a part of my personality (which was my instinct all along!). I am so grateful to have my brain back!
Dr.Pandian is very nice and welcoming. I feel very comfortable discussing my needs and concerns when it comes to my medication. Dr.Pandian is very knowledgeable about the medication he prescribes and it's effects on the body. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that maybe hesitant to try a psychiatrist.
Excellence in his field!
I felt very informed after leaving my initial appointment. He's kind, takes time to explain everything, asks good questions, and seems genuinely enthusiastic about psychiatry and helping people.
Very happy with the Doctor and the individualized attention he gave me during my appointment. Doctor showed me a real concern for me.
I met with Dr. Pandian twice and each appointment went way too quick for my liking. Although the speed of the check in process and wait time was excellent, I was left ultimately disappointed. I was seen by Dr. Pandian for only 15 minutes each visit and he failed to really ask me about my past in depth. He was very quick to hand me a prescription without listening to my issues in full. After the first visit, I wasn't receiving great results from the medication I was prescribed and brought my concerns to Dr. Pandian. As opposed to referencing back to my concerns during my first appointment, I was quickly given another prescription to try. I was informed by my new psychiatrist I should have never been taking the medication I was given. Overall if you're looking for a psychiatrist who is quick to give a script and a very fast appointment, this doctor is great for you. If you're looking for someone who really assesses your needs, try someone else.
Terrific doctor. Very good manors too. He has the right attitude and it shows how he cares to find the right solution for the patient and not to rush them out of the door. We need more doctors that care about patients than bottom line profits. Thanks Dr. Pandian!
Dr. Pandian.... The best.
Dr.pandian is a great doctor that listens to your issues and does not give up on you until he can get you well again, I highly recommend this Dr.
Very attentive, good listener, did a great job explaining how SSRI's work; including the philosophy behind the medicine, and took a lot of time formulating a plan specific to me and my situation. All things considered, I was highly impressed. Would recommend.
Dr. Pandian listened well and clearly explaned both my condition and the therapeutic options available to me. I was very pleased by my initial consultation and left with confidence in his abilities and the strategy we had put together for my treatment moving forward.
Too quick. Appointments should last longer and be more involved. The Doctor does not know anything about me
Dr. Pandian is the best psychiatrist I've had, and I've had a number of them. He really listens to you and takes you seriously. He makes appropriate suggestions and explains your medications, the reasons for them and how they work. I am very glad I found him.
He has got to be one of the best doctors in the US , he is attentive , listens to your concerns on medications, overall the best i have seen! Highly recommended by me.
It is really good to visit the doctor Pandiam.
Very professional, and polite. Would recommend.
Dr. Pandian is the best hands down, from the ease of appointment, the respect as an individual, and the depth of conversation this man knows his field, loves his profession and isn't afraid to share his knowledge with you about treatment options. Can't go wrong with him, he's there to help you
After a bad experience with a another MD i was reluctant to scheduling with a new on. I am so glad i decided to because he was patient and listened to my symptoms and explained diagnosis and medication that was very understandable to me. He was able to see me even after I was a late having trouble finding it.
HE IS ABSOLUTLY AMAZING, I HAD ALOT OF RESERVATIONS ABOUT SEEING SOMEBODY NEW, BUT HE PUT MY MIND AT EASE AND EXPLAINED THINGS IN A MANNER THAT I UNDERSTOOD, I HAVE REFERED 2 PEOPLE TO HIM SINCE MY VISIT. I AM GREATFUL TO HAVE FOUND SUCH A CARING AND DILIGENT INDIVIDUAL TO TREAT ME. THANK YOU SO VEY MUCH!!!!!
Extremely professional and more importantly thorough! He takes the time to help me understand how medication works in the brain and is very knowledgeable on side effects and long term treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Pandian!
I love this doc. Very informative, quick, and easy to talk to. This was a blessing! Highly recommended!
Right away I could feel Dr. Pandian was a warm and caring. He really spoke to me, asking very pointed questions to get to the heart of my issues. He listened with intent and really heard what I was saying. He described what I was going through back to me and he related it to the pathological reasons behind it. I felt taken care of with him. I really feel has diagnosed me correctly and given my hope of improving. He really cares about his patients.
Very professional, easy to talk, knows what he is doing.
I THINK HE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING HAS HELPED ME ALOT.
He is a great Doctor
Great doctor. He really listened to me, and explained things well to me as to what medicine I should try and how it should help my problem. (And I'm glad to say it did work)
Dr. Pandian helped me to get the correct diagnosis. I spent years going to the wrong doctors. I am so happy to have my life back!
Very nice guy, listened to me ramble.
This is a physician who listens and is willing to involve the family in the decisions made. He is cautious and well informed. His open demeanor and patience are what is sorely lacking in today's medical field.
Best psychiatrist I have ever had. I've started seeing them when I was 6 i am almost 29. I recommend him to everyone!
Dr . Pandian is the best doctor I've encountered. I am a registered nurse so I've experienced many physicians personally and professionally. He listens to you, explains everything to you, includes you in the plan of care and is empathetic. His knowledge base is incomparable. He is truly a blessing!
I was anticipating more discussion with him. Did not feel that a thorough assessment was completed. Question s were not open ended about reason for visit but qualitative about characterizing emotions.
I had been looking for a complete diagnosis and medication plan that really addressed my struggles. Nothing was working. Gratefully, I found Dr. Pandian. He explained what was going on for me better than I was able to explain my symptoms, explained why the medications I was currently on were not effective for those symptoms and prescribed new meds to get me moving in the right direction. I am so grateful for his expertise and help.
He made me feel very comfortable and hopeful. His office is quiet and no frills, which was pleasant. Would recommend to anyone.
I believe that Dr.Pandian have changed my life by making me understand my condition and laying out all options of managing it with few lifestyle changes to head to a more positive path, Thank you Dr.Pandian
More clear, informative, and helpful than previous doctors I've seen.
SUCH a relief finding this doctor!!! I have been to many psychiatrists, and he is the only one that has taken the time to listen to me and my concerns, my questions, my fears, my worries, everything! He explained what was going on psychologically, and listened to my feedback on treatments of choice. I have never felt so comfortable, especially because he took the time to thoroughly explain what I was going through, how different treatments would affect me, and what his recommendations were given my previous history. I did not feel rushed at all, and I felt like he truly was concerned about understanding my issues and working together to figure out a treament plan I felt comfortable with. I highly recommend Dr. Pandian! One of a kind!
Very pleased with my first meeting with Dr. Pandian, He was extremely thorough and made me feel very comfortable throughout the appointment. After discussing my past history with my condition as well as my current situation, he was able to come up with a medication plan that I was comfortable with. He also explained what to expect with the meds and explained other options, if necessary. Overall it was a great visit and I would definitely recommend Dr. Pandian.
I have been seeing doctors for almost 2 years. This has been the only Dr. that has took time to learn and study my behaviors to find a solution .
Very professional and knowledgeable. I am very happy with my treatment plan.
Dr. Pandian was very thorough, he listened carefully to me. Took his time to list out the best treatment plan.
Dr Pandian is extremely professional and understanding. This is what every doctor should aspire to be.
Dr. Pandian is the best psychiatrist I've ever seen. He takes the time to actually listen to you and he knows how to ask questions to get the answers he's looking for to better prescribe medications for you. He makes you feel that you are part of the decision on your plan of care, which is a lot more than any other psychiatrist have done. He also encourages you to do your own research and call with any questions. I went to see Dr. Pandian for postpartum issues and I am still breastfeeding. He did not see this as a problem and was willing to work with me to find the right medication, even though it is much more limited with my situation. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area.
Smart intelligent doctor.
Very good first visit. Has a lot of knowledge of brain chemistry and how certain meds will react. Felt like he had my best interest when choosing a care plan. He gives you options so that you can ultimately make the decision on your treatment. One negative-called regarding a question on medication and still have not received a call back, having to make another appointment to meet with him instead.
He took the time to listen to my concerns and we came up with a treatment plan together. He is extremely knowledgeable - I would recommend him to friends and/or family.
always feel better and more hopeful every time I see this doctor. so knowledgeable and encouraging
He is an amazing and caring psychiatrist. He made my stay in acute care claiming.
I found Dr Pandian to be pleasant, and knowledgeable. The initial consultation was thorough and the treatment plan was clear. In followup visits, progress was made via Q&A and I felt very much a part of the decision process, given options and alternatives when appropriate. The office staff was able to assist on between-visit phone calls for information as well.
Dr. Pandian was very thorough and attentive. He made sure to explain clearly the possible interventions to help with my diagnosis. He explained the science behind the drugs commonly used, and allowed me to have a say in the course of my treatment. He listened to my special concerns and made recommendations based on those concerns.
Super professional, polite, fast work, very knowledgeable technician. Been using Action for years and as long as they're around they'll have my business! Thanks Kevin!!!
Made me feel at ease very personable enjoy talking to him gave me great feedback very knowledgeable about the medications he was prescribing
Dr. Pandian is very easy to talk with and listens to your needs. A pleasent change of pace for a DR/
Very patient and caring doctor! Appreciate how intelligent and understanding he was.
I thought Dr.Pandian was very understanding and knowledgeable .
Very professional, and very informative!
I've seen a number of psychiatrists, but Dr Pandian is definitely the only one who listens, gives you pros and cons as well as suggestions, and was able to improve my quality of life.
Dr. Pandian was extremely helpful and knowledgable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr.Pandian was very knowledgeable, professional, and an expert in his field.He was very easy to talk to and makes you understand his treatment plan.
Dr. Pandian is a very knowledgeable individual and provided me with a thoughtful approach during my appointment. He was very thorough in explaining different options and treatments. I highly recommend this doctor.
He is very good doctor. He save my life!!
soo knowledgeable, then speaks to you so you would understand the science in why someone feels then acts the way they do. have been to many doctors, this one is by far in a whole other class!
Dr. Pandian is very professional and knowledgeable. He takes the time to ask in depth questions to figure out what treatment is appropriate, and then gives you different choices so you feel like you have some say so in your treatment (unlike many other psychiatrists). He's a really nice, understanding guy and I will continue to see him, I highly recommend him!!
He's still the man. I've been seeing him for almost 3 months now. Haven't had one better.
He is Very smart and caring.
Great doctor! Very thorough in explaining everything so he made me feel very at ease. Gave me a full breakdown of what the next steps will be. Very happy I sat down with Dr. Pandian.
He put my parents at ease and answered all the questions they had about my diagnosis.
Dr. Shivkumar was very helpful, knowladgable. Explained everything and provided me with options. Gave me great advice. Visit was easy and informative.
Dr. Pandian is a doctor that empowers his patient by educating them on how the chemicals in the brain works, how the medicine he recommends influence those chemicals, and educates patients alternatives to psychotropic medication. Dr. Pandian has always been on time with his appointments. He is very friendly and approachable. He works with patients in a very scientific manner on the proper doses of each medication. Dr. Pandian usually will start you off on a new medication in a low dose if it's a new medication the patient wants to try is new, and is very thorough in determining what side affects of the medication happens to be for a patient, educates the patient if those side affects are normal, and the doctor is good in adjusting medications and doses that best minimizes those side affects with decreasing the positive effects a medication may have. I have work with many psychiatrists in my career as a counselor, and Pandian happens to be one of the best in adhering to the best practices in his field. He is also a very humble person who isn't all about making profit like some doctors. The man really genuinely cares about his patients, and seems to find a special purpose in his career. I highly recommend for other patients to have Dr. Pandian be their doctor. Please don't think because he is Indian that he won't be a good doctor. Dr. Pandian is very culturally sensitive, and has the skill to work with all types of ethnicities.
As always, Dr. Pandian is one of the professional and skilled healthcare professionals I have worked with. Not only is he an incredibly intelligent and talented professional but he is even a better person. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Pandian is the first psychiatrist I've been a patient of who really listens to me and takes all of my complaints about symptoms seriously. He takes the time to properly explain his reasoning for trying a certain treatment and always gives me several options and the choice for me to choose what I think is best. He also seems to truly care about his patients. Highly recommended.
I found Dr. Pandian to be attentive and a good listener and most important a very competent professional. I am very grateful to have found this physician.
Highly recommend Dr. Pandian.
Very nice. Explained everything. As a nurse, I was very impressed by his "bedside" manner.
Dr. Pandian is very friendly, knowledgeable, and intelligent. He is easy to see on pretty short notice. He is thoughtful and very well-spoken. I highly recommend him.
He is an excellent doctor very empathetic and was very straightforward. His secretary is super nice and they are very accommodating.
He actually took the time to listen to me and explain things to me. Asked a lot of questions and seemed genuinely interested in helping me.
Makes you feel comfortable and very easy to talk to. Explains everything in full detail and is willing to answer any questions you may have.
Very knowledgeable and attentive. He took the time to explain the medication that he prescribed and the potential side effects that is associated with each medication. Would highly recommend this doctor
Very education oriented. I have been seeing a psychiatrist since I was 6, I am 28 now; I know more now then ever. And I work in the psych field.
I was extremely pleased with Dr. Pandian's knowledge and ability to talk with me regarding options and concerns of my treatment.
There's a reason he has immediate availability. Very textbook, didn't see me as an individual and although he was kind he didn't know what he was doing. Prescribed meds that made me worse - one of which is an old, "dinosaur" sleep med that would hit me quickly, like an instant blackout and then I'd wake up extremely thirsty and with a "hangover". It was really scary.
Dr. Pandian is awesome!!!!!! I've seen several psychiatrists and he by far takes the time, uses all his knowledge & skills to assist a patient in getting holistically better. By far the best psychiatrist I've seen!!!!
Dr. Pandian was was very intelligent and caring. He prescribed me new medications based on my all my personal problems rather than just giving the "the usual" and sending me on my way, like other psychiatrists that I have seen.
I felt like he is not only very knowledgeable but he actually care about my welfare. I am happy I found Dr. Pandian
Is the first time that a Doctor has taken time to explain what the drugs will do to my son. I felt like i was taking a class came out of there very happy, he was not looking at the clock like most he took his time and answer all of our questions. That is what a doctor is all about...
Seems to be genuinely interested in his field and patient care.
He explained everything very well, and helped me feel comfortable. He was straight to the point and very objective.
He was outstanding professional doctor and he was very patient and he was a very good listener too.
Excellent! Took the time to explain and offered much help.
He was very through about everything. If you didn't understand something he explained it very clearly to you. Overall it was a very good experience.
Unlike most doctors he wants to help you.
The receptionist was extremely friendly and welcoming, making my visit very comfortable and easy-going. In addition, out of all the psychiatrists I have seen in the past, Dr. Pandian was the only one to thoroughly explain the chemistry of the medicine prescribed, which was very much appreciated on my part.
