Slidell, LA |
Absolutely horrible experience. Did not snow any concern for any issues that I had concerns about, and absolutely impossible to reach him directly. I've been once and I'm already looking for a new primary care provider.

Dr. Munshi is very thorough in his examinations. He also takes the time to explain the effects of different illnesses on the body.
Dr. Munshi is very reliable and responsive. Very easy to talk to and understanding, and straightforward with his evaluations. Would definitely recommend him as a PCP
Picayune, MS |
He doesn't seem to diagnose any of my problems. He chalked it up to medication I have been taking for years. He will also do unessasary blood work that doesn't even relate to my problem. I saw him for indigestion and he had me sign a consent form for HIV testing! I refused and then he came in the room and raised his voice at me. His nurse told me that is routine blood work he does on everyone. No that's not the way you conduct business.
