I cannot express enough of my gratitude for Dr. Thapar. I have battled my condition my whole life which kept me from high school sports and many fun youthful activities. Recently, I would been having such severe pain that was slowly taking away pieces of my life. I lost the ability to partake in outdoor activities like hunting and even the basic task we take for granted, walking without debilitating pain. Many people recommended I see Dr. Thapar. Even many of my doctor friends were singing his praises and touting him as one of the best in the world and that if it was anyone but him I should get a second opinion. Another impressive thing is that a neurosurgeon at a different facility mentioned that he is in a league of his own. I thought with that skill level there would have to be a sacrifice with something like bedside manner. I was so wrong! I met him for my assessment appointment and he treated my problem with the greatest attention. He treated me with so much respect as a person. He explained everything in detail. This man is on a level of his own. I cannot express how much this man has changed my life. I will forever be indebted to that man. Thank you Dr. Thapar.
From the first person we met to the last person at my check up (or out), everyone was empathic, friendly, and professional. All meetings with Dr. Thapar and the assistants were thorough, well explained, truthful, and unhurried. I do not remember much about the procedure, but my wife felt well informed and confident throughout. Highly recommend this team.
