very happy about the way he asked questions to find out what, where, how I came to what I am dealing with; with how he explained different levels of what I am dealing with, where I stand currently, and what can be done to improve my situation.

One of the few psychiatrists I've had that actually listens to me and takes my opinion and what I prefer to try into consideration. He has a very straightforward way of explaining things that makes me feel a little less crazy, and he doesn't let me make excuses for things. I would definitely recommend him, especially if you're like me and have trouble finding psych docs you like.

The best psychiatrist I have ever seen. He explains everything to you, and gives you a full break down of your symptoms and treatment plan. Not a pill pusher. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I would not go anywhere else.

I love Dr. Pandian! He knows his limitations and doesn’t believe he can save the world with his medical knowledge! He knows what he is doing and does not go overboard! However, I think he might be a little too skeptical of individuals who are not the people who should be treated in such a manner!
