in Fort Worth, TX |
Dr. Lapiswala is terrifi. Twice he has served our family. First in 2013 when my daughter had a brain cyst and menegitis and was not expected to live. Then again in Feb. 2017 when I had a cyst on my siatic nerve. Both of us are back to our normal selves with no side effects. Dr. Lapiswala is the only person I will trust anyone in my family to see for any surgery he preformes.
