About Your Visit Today
Your visit today will be fully discussed and reviewed by Dr. Pandit. In addition, Dr. Pandit will personally review all tests that Kagen performs or orders, such as hearing tests, scopes, CT scans, lab tests, biopsies, etc. Kagen or Dr. Pandit will also contact any of your other providers that may be able to assist us in providing you the best care possible.
