Dr Thapar was OUTSTANDING. He was very compassionate and understanding. He even returned my call over a three-day weekend. And once he heard my excruciating pain did not subside, he went out of his way to personally contact my orthopedic surgeon to ensure my surgery date was scheduled sooner than initially planned. I would highly recommend Dr. Thapar!

I cannot say enough about this doctor. I was referred to him but my ortho doc. He explained my condition to me thoroughly and answered all our questions. He performed my injection in Flower Mound and he again was thorough prior to the procedure. Results: Instant pain relief. I called him today with a question and he called me back quickly and answered by questions. Great doctor!

Dr Thapar is very knowledgable, patient and accomodating. My back went out and he got me in immediately, coordinated an MRI and administered an injection the same day, Very impressed and appreciative.

Dr. Thapar didn't believe that I had back issues. My problem with him is he didn't listen to me and I had 8 years of numbness and sciatica pain as a result. even though he said nothing was wrong, he would still give me injections. In November of 2016, I had a L4 L5 S1 with transitional vertebrae, multi level fusion. My thoughts are, thanks for not doing your try to make me think my pain was all in my head. My back tells a different story!!! Jennifer Francis
