SHC Patient, Apr 2020

as I see him regularly we communicate better. all the time

SHC Patient, Apr 2020

Exceptionally positive. Outstanding doctor.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

Dr. Pandya is very informative, professional & caring. Make you feel you're in great hands.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

The doctor listened to my request and he agreed accordingly.

SHC Patient, Feb 2020

I have had condition for years ... no explanations needed. Md understood why I was there and responded appropriately.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

I have great confidence in his clinical skills. Getting a a timely appointment for an unexpected issue is difficult and getting emails via portal is very poor.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

As our follow up visits have become less frequent, I feel like I'm not getting the attention or focus of Dr. Pandya that I have in the past. During this most recent visit, he said that everything looked great, despite me mentioning that the therapy does not seem as effective as it used to be and that I was concerned.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr Pandya spent only about 15-20 minutes with me here. When I was an inpatient at ValleyCare, he only spends about 2-3 minutes per visit. I always need to be prepared prior to his visit so I can ask all my questions within that span of time.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

I have recommended Dr. Pandya many times.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

I think the fact that the doctor is good causes him to be in such high demand that his schedule is overloaded. So , much as I would like to recommend him as a physician, sending anyone to sit for an hour waiting for an appointment is not something I would readily do.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Good

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

very good service and friendly staff very knowledgeable staff and doctor

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

I'm not sure the doctor was listening to me while I was speaking. He missed some of the details that I mentioned while giving my history.

SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Good

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Wonderful

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

On this visit, Dr. Pandya was not on his mobile phone during the visit. It made it much easier to talk with him. Thank you!

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Dr. was extremely personable and very interested in me and my concerns. I have already shared my experience with others and have recommended Dr.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Dr. Pandya is pleasant and addresses any concerns I may have!

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

good experience

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

Due to the pressures of the day and lateness of my appointment the Dr. appeared to be somewhat rushed.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

good

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

It was first time seeing Dr. Pandya. Both my husband and I felt very comfortable with him, from professional level and personal manner.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

excellent experience

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

love Dr Pandya

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

good

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I feel there wasn't enough time with the provider. He was busy typing on the computer uploading data from the form I completed. It should be the job of a doc assistant to load data onto the computer so the doctor is able to look at the patient more and have a conversation instead I feel like if I asked him a question I was interrupting him. I didn't feel I was really able to spend a good amount of time to ask questions.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Doctor seemed to be more interested in looking at the computer screen than interacting with patient.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr Pandya is AWESOME

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

lacks communication skills when calling or sending a message

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. entering data and looking at data. He didn't see to listen to what I was saying

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr is an excellent doctor

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Every one is in a rush including doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

I love Dr Pandya!

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Very good experience

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

dr has been taking more time to discuss things with me. I like him better now

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

very caring and professional, felt confident with his explanations and concerns, was on top of getting my scans at the earliest without delays with insurance so the right treatment can be started without delay.very good and caring doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

very informative. nice guy. would recommend for sure

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

it's always a pleasure to visit Dr. Pandya

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Love Dr. Pandya

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Only negative was that he texted on his cell phone during my appointment.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Really great doctor!

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Dr arrived and we spoke about my sleep issues. He then got a phone call and proceeded to talk for 8-10 mins on the phone. did not appear it was and emergency. finished our appt in the next 2 mins. I felt it was rude to take a call during the appt.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

I think the doctor needs to explain better on solutions of my issue better. seems like he's dancing around on solutions. doesn't want to give diffent answer or solutions when we ask questions

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Great doctor he really cares about me.

SHC Patient, May 2019

I know Dr. Pandya is extremely busy. The past three appointments I've had with him, he's been very busy on his mobile phone during the visit. It's made it nearly impossible to have a conversation with him. I have questions I'd like to ask, but for whatever reason, he now seems too busy to have a conversation during the appointment. I know he is a good doctor, and we could previously have a helpful conversation. I'm starting to wonder if he still wants to be my doctor, or what is happening.

SHC Patient, May 2019

The care provider has always been courteous,informitive and thorough.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

professional & caring to patient !

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

he is not detail oriented at all

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr most caring and concerned

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I'm so impressed with Dr. Pandya I recommended 2 other friends with similar problems as mine to him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I am very happy having Dr. Pandya as my pulmonary doctor. He has made me feel better over and over again, when my asthma acts up.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Just more customer service at front desk I was not happy with.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I am a retired full time medical school faculty member. Dr Pandya would be a model of the caring, informed, communicative physician for my previous 24 residents.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I am very comfortable with Dr. Pandya. As an extremely complicated patient, I am confident in his judgement and grateful to have him on.my team. my only issue would be I wish I had more time, but I understand policies.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr Pandiya is one fantastic Doctor!!!!

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

The doctor was texting and reading text during my visit. I understand since I'm a new patient, but I had questions and he didn't have enough info. to tell me other than do the sleep study. I'm hoping my 2nd visit will be better.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Seemed very rushed, not able to grasp what I was trying to tell him. Obviously did not read/comprehend tests results.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr Estakhri always spends sufficient time to answer all of my questions. I never feel like she is rushed

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

The doctor was too much in a hurry and did not make eye contact and did not seem to listen to me and typed the whole time I was there. Now after saying all this please know that I am a health provider for this Doctor's patients and they have expressed to me during their time as in patients the same concerns about this doctor. I wanted to speak to the doctor about this but he was out the door before I could.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

I would recommend this Dr. but with a warning about slowness of making an appointment not enough help to answering the phones alway put on hold for quite some time
