in Camby, Indiana |
I was referred to Dr Snead for a broken clavical and rotator cup damage. I was absolutely blown away with the worst exam I could have imagined. He would not allow me to talk about my injuries. He told me that I needed to forget everything any other Drs had told me because I caused my injuries by believing I was hurt like they said. I willed my collar bone to brake and stick out of my chest! He made it clear that he could not care less about my injuries. Such an jerk that it seemed like a gag

I spend every workday working with physicians, I have never come across a physician such as Dr. Snead in my professional career. Dr. Snead has very poor bedside manner, lacks basic personal skills, unwilling to work in collaboration with multidisciplinary teams and doesn't appear to keep up to date on new research/ EBP Dr. Snead failed to complete a physical assessment on 2/3 of my visits & refused to listen. Fortunatly I have found a GOOD MD who has got me back to baseline after 1 visit!!

I went to Snead for pain in my shoulder. He diagnosed it as biceps tendinitis and ordered PT. An MRI arthogram was ordered, and a follow up to discuss was scheduled. At the follow up, he didn't show me any images or the report written by the radiologist. He told me my biceps tendon was fraying at the top. After no relief, weeks later I got a second opinion from a dr who showed the tear in my labrum and the report from the radiologist saying it was torn. Snead never shared this info with me.
I am a physician referred to Dr Snead for evaluation of a chronic painful shoulder by another orthopedic surgeon. I ended up needing a shoulder replacement for advanced arthritis. He and his PA took wonderful care of me. The facility at Avon was excellent. I only required oral pain meds during the one night stay after surgery. Within 10 days I was sleeping through the night and not needing any pain pills. Now at a year I could not be happier. I have about full range of motion and no pain!!
