Dr. Panadian is the best Psychiatrist I have ever gone too ! I was a mess when I first went to see him mentally and medication wise, it is so hard to find good doctors these days . All they seem to care about is the money, but Dr. Pandian was informative and actually listened to my issues. We worked them out together and now I've never felt better, I don't know where I would of ended up with out him. Also Yessica his receptionist is such a sweet heart, she goes out of her way to help you.

I had an awful experience with my last psychiatrist and I was nervous to meet a new one. I read up online about Dr. Pandian's reviews on ZocDoc and not one person had something bad to say about him. I met him the first time the other day and I felt so comfortable and at ease and he was so understanding and explains all the medications perfectly. He really knows his stuff. He also is so friendly and I can tell he genuinely cares about you. Great doc. He is the BEST!!!
