I had a horrible experience with Dr. Pandit. I do not recommend him at all. He is an extremely arrogant doctor but my bigger issue is that an error was made with coding my eye exam to my insurance company and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to have his office correct this error. What a complete nightmare. I hope nobody else has this experience especially since there are so may amazing doctors in Houston.

Dr Pandit had been my 84 year old Mom's eye Dr for some 3+ years. During that time she has been care for well by most standards. However the practice has a real assembly line mentality. I will say he knows his stuff medically and that is important but so is treating patience and their family with respect and a bit of empathy. During a transplant surgery on Tues this week they screwed things up.everything from schedule to who were were before and after.

As a physician I'm very observant of the habits, practices and styles of my own docs. Dr. Pandit is very, very careful and excellent in all aspects. Exactly the kind of physician I want taking care of me and the sort of MD I hope to emulate. Highly recommended and without hesitation. steve meltzer, md
