He took time to look over my medical records and ask questions about my problems . After doing some simple movements with me he decided pain medication would not help me.. He is going to put me through a series of shots and therapy. I have 100% faith he can get me where I need to be.

I think dr. Pandya really cares about his patients, unlike many others that seem to just want to just run you through the process quickly, he's a good man.

Like the fact that he takes time with you and doesn't rush you through and explains so that you understand. My husband is Spanish and I appreciated that Dr Pandya spoke directly to him not me-we've had experiences where I guess Drs assumed he didn't understand English and would look at me and talk like husband wasn't even in room-the wait was long cause they were running behind but it was worth it

Dr. Pandya is a great dr. He listens to your concerns and has your best interest at heart . He will take the time and explain to you about your condition and let you know exactly the best possible treatment to help alleviate the pain and or try his best to get the issue fixed. I appreciate all the time and concern he's spent on me and I thank him for that.

Dr. Pandya is one of the best, caring physicians. I trust him to always have my best interest when discussing and implementing treatment. Dr. Pandya takes the time to listen and understand my concerns, pain and will treat me accordingly. His professionalism, skill, knowledge and expertise is always the deciding factor in how to best treat me. He can see the “big picture”. I have never felt I was just a patient. He has and continues to improve the quality of my life.

As a Critical Care Professional, I know all too well the pitfalls that face today's pain management Physicians. Dr. Pandya is outstanding and excells in his field. Having been thrice voted as Optims 'best of 2018', the trust built by this Physician is second to none. I challenge anyone who would argue that point. Dr. Pandya is my 'go to' for patients in need of expert pain management.
