Dr. Snell is wonderfully patient-centric. She takes time to make sure you understand what she is doing, what she has found and what you need to do next. Her manner is warm and friendly; her knowledge, understanding and thoughtfulness are comforting; and her experience and competence make her a phenomenal choice for your ophthalmologist.

My experience with Dr. Snell has exceeded all my expectations. She has never failed to answer my questions to my complete satisfaction. With both of my cateract surgeries, she put me at complete ease before my surgery both in her office and in the hospital. Her most indearing quality, though, is that she prays with her patients in the office and before the procedure. I so appreciate her bringing the Lord into our procedure. Both my surgeries were successful.

I highly recommend Dr. Snell, she is very personable and knowledgeable. I was very impressed with how she explained the steps that would be taken during my cataract surgery. She answered my questions with patient and did not talk down to me or talk in highly technical terms.
