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.

I met Dr Munshi in an emergency situation and he was so knowledgeable and reassuring that I trusted everything he said. I would highly recommend Dr Munshi to anyone. He and his PA Bailley were amazing and I totally am so grateful to walk and have every working function thanks to this amazing Doctor.

Dr. Munshi is an excellent Doctor. He performed a 3 level lumbar fusion and I will forever be thankful for his service. I am pain free and taking it day by day to fully recover. Lafayette is lucky to have such an asset in the community.
