Very professional and respectful- would recommend

Took my young adult son for care. Snyder spoke in medical terminology and was visibly annoyed with questions to clarify what he was saying. He kept referencing a treatment option which he wouldn't recommend. When asked why we were discussing it if it wasn't recommended, he literally rolled his eyes and said he "assumed" it's the treatment we wanted to pursue. Assumed?! Really?! He never smiled once and barely made eye contact. All other personnel were fantastic! Thorough, professional and nice
I am sorry that you had that experience. Physicians are human beings, and have flaws like everyone else. The personality traits which make for a thoughtful, careful, and perceptive surgeon, often do not coincide with a gregarious personality. Sometimes patients bring with them their own anxieties and expectations, which can alter their perception of how a visit goes. I try in every encounter to provide conscientious and professional service, regardless of my own personal feelings.

Dr. Snyder may be a competent doctor but his bedside manner will have me going elsewhere for the surgery he suggested. He could not even look me in the eye as we spoke. If he doesn't care enough to really connect and communicate with his patients, I can't imagine putting myself in his hands.
I assure you that I care a great deal about all of my patients, and spend a lot of time preparing carefully for each visit. I also make a tremendous effort to educate patients during each encounter. I am sorry that your perception of me was so negative. A large amount of time and personal sacrifice is required on the part of physicians and surgeons to be able to deliver safe and competent care. That said, physicians are also human beings, and sometimes have a bad day.

Excellent diagnostic performance ... excellent care ...was able to explain another physicians misinterpreted diagnosis from another facility without demeaning or degrading the other physician. We drove 3 hours to see Dr Snyder . We would easily drive even further for his expertise. Very professional and well trained in his field of expertise.

I was very sick for several months before I saw Dr. Snyder and was very thankful I was refered to him . He is very professional and very clear with his communication. I ended up needing surgery and felt very safe, with no complications, and healed nicely . I would recommend him to anyone.
