Six weeks ago I had repair of a ruptured disc in my neck. He clearly explained the issue and the surgery and what to expect afterwards. Immediately after surgery the pain I had for months in my left arm was gone and much of the numbness. He was readily available by phone when I questions that first week. He and his staff are very professional and courteous. I am pain free and gradually resuming normal activities with no problems. I highly recommend Dr. Sneed. I also thank his NP , Cinda.
Arrogant and rude, after having a cervical fusion by him I went back with severe pain like way worse after only 3 years. After he told me to just walk and then sent me to pain management after months of not really telling me what was wrong. I then asked for my medical notes and was amazed how he lied about things and only put down what would make me look bad as a patient. He failed to mention half of what was really said. Anyone who treats patients like this shouldn't be practicing.

Dr. Sneed recently repaired a ruptured disc in my back. The location of the rupture created a little bit of a unique situation for him. He did a wonderful job. He is an extremely knowledgeable and professional surgeon, both in the operating room and in his office. A great person with a very likable personality. He is very patient to answer questions and explain procedures, as well as to create a reassuring atmosphere and put me at ease. I would strongly recommend him as a neurosurgeon.

My primary care physician referred me to Dr. Sneed for a herniated disc condition that was causing me a great deal of pain. Dr. Sneed clearly explained my MRI results to me and that my condition required surgery. The surgery was successful and after six weeks of recovery I'm back to my normal self. The entire process, from inception to conclusion; from his secretary to his nurse, was all professional and courteous. Thank you Dr. Sneed.

He answers every question you might have in a clear and understandable way. My surgery I have 0 complaints. His staff is excellent. His nurse before surgery was just great as was Dr. Sneed himself. Without a doubt would go back to him should the need arrise. Kim Lauerman.

I was suffering from severe sciatic pain due to L-3, L4 disc herniation. Dr. Sneed and his staff were very courteous, professional, and took the time to answer my questions during my office visits prior to my surgery. Three hours after surgery, I walked out of the Surgicare facility pain free and have been ever since the surgery was performed over seven weeks ago. This has been a life changing event. I highly recommend Dr. Sneed for anyone having similar back issues.
