In 1988 I was diagnosed with Refractory Depression. Physicians who treated me did so with 1 medication at a time; some worked, some didn't . Fall 2015 I tried to commit suicide; when I "came to" Dr. Pandian was standing next to me. I said "Please help me"; he said "I will help you"! We worked together to find the best med "cocktail" to treat me. He is the 1st physician in 30 years to dig to the bottom of my depression & figure out how to deal with it. If he had wings & a halo he would fly!

Dr. Pandian is essentially a medication management doctor - you are there to find medications to assist you. You would think his office would have the prescription delivery/refill process down to a science. They don't. You are left chasing prescription requests without him/his office lifting a finger to ensure you have your meds. Nothing is streamlined or clear - be prepared to be frustrated and have to follow up on everything (and don't expect an apology for their mistakes, ever).

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!!!
