I would recommend anybody to Dr. Munchie. I had a huge meningioma tumor on top of my brain. After the operation they thought I would need therapy but he did such a wonderful job I did not need therapy. I know I am a miracle case!!! The office staff is like a well oiled machine. They are very kind, they know their jobs, and when you call they know exactly who is taking care of what and will transfer you to that person. Thank you Dr. Munchie

Before choosing a neurosurgeon, I did some research as to who would be the best surgeon for me. I wanted one that had experience, was knowledgeable in my diagnosis, and that would take time with me to answer my questions. I am so happy that I chose Dr. Munshi! He always had a smile on his face, was very friendly, and truly concerned about me. Dr. Munshi and his office staff are wonderful and I am so very thankful for how I was taken care of in my time of need.

I would highly recommend Dr Munshi. After having great pain then no feeling in my leg and seeing several other doctors for over a year and getting no help or relief I was referred to dr Munshi by a coworker. One visit surgery was scheduled and immediately after surgery I had all feeling in my leg again. He truly gave me my life back and I could never thank him enough. I will never use anyone else for neuro issues.

15yrs of chronic back pain and finally, relief!!! I was very nervous at first but Dr. Munshi was very confident that I would do fine and he was right! 4months post op and I can sit without pain and walk longer distances without pain and I'm still recovering. I prayed and asked God to put me in the best hands possibly and as usual, he never fails! My operation was a complete success! Dr Munshi did an amazing job!

I'm a patient of Dr. Munchi for over 4 years now. He first helped me with a spinal cyst that developed post hip replacement. I had been in severe pain for several months when I went to him. He scheduled me for surgery that week and the day after I felt like I could go dancing. A few years later I thought the cyst came back , but it turned out I had herniated several disc in my lumbar. He performed surgery cleaning the bulge that pinched the spinal nerve and gave me relief. 1 night stay in hosp.

I was suffering with back pain for about 5 years and kept going to doctors to help me because the pain had traveled down my left leg, making it difficult for me to work and walk on it for long periods of time and no one would do so. Making a long story short Dr. Munshi is a wonderful doctor. He preformed my surgery and removed my disc off of my sciatic nerve. I feel 1000% better than ever. Thanks to this wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a neurosurgeon.
in Lafayette, LA |
I would highly recommend Dr Munshi. I had a successful surgery and am very pleased with the care during and after surgery. Great Doctor!
in Kaplan la |
Dr munshi did a super job for me. We tried 2 shots and then went to surgery. He doesnt waste your time and knows his business. He pretty well cured my back problem with s minimum of time Thank you Dr munshi
He clearly knows his specialty and has been a good doctor to work with. He can come across as a little impatient at times but I don't think it is intentional. The office staff are all amazing and we have rarely waited longer than 10 mins even when we were late.
