After several visits & injections, he has brought quality back to my life, as I was suffering with bone spurs, bulging disks, & arthritis in, my neck. He explained the process, before the injections in terms I could understand. Great Doctor & great staff, I would recommend.

My Family Physician referred me to Dr. Munshi after an MRI revealed I had a herniated and bulging disc in my back. My pain was past extreme and required surgery (Lumbar Discectomy) to relieve this pain. Dr. Munsui and his staff made me feel very comfortable with my procedure. Received concern and compassion from the staff and Dr. Munshi before and after my surgery.. Immediately after waking from surgery, I was no longer experiencing any of the prior pain I experienced. I am so grateful for all that Dr. Munshi and his staff did for me.

Dr. Munshi and his staff are amazing ! They are very welcoming and eager to make your visits stress free. Dr. Munshi saved my Daughter in law Amanda and unborn grand child Aubries life 7 years ago. If it had not been for him and his expertise in his field we would have lost both of them. Today I find myself with back issues and would go to no one other than Dr. Munshi because I know personally the type of surgeon he is and mostly the compassion and desire that he has to help his patients. 10 stars Dr. Munshi

Dr. Munshi literally saved my husbands life. Almost one year ago my husband had emergency surgery for a massive brain bleed. His brain was pushed to one side and his pupils were fixed so his prognosis to just make it through surgery was very poor. My husband not only made it through the surgery but he regained ALL cognitive and physical ability. Amazing!!! Dr. Munshi is completely honest, genuine, caring, and such an incredible surgeon. He went above and beyond for my husband in every way. His staff is also wonderful-always so kind and helpful too. We love Dr.Munshi and we’re forever grateful to him for everything he’s done for us.
