I can't imagine what on earth would prompt any one to leave a negative for Drs. Walden and Snell. These are hands down the best gastro doctors in the city. They are beloved - brilliant, compassionate and go out of their way for their patients. My elderly mom was turned away by another gastro doctor (because, he said: "she's Medicare, isn't she? She should go in hospice") and I called Walden/Snell's office in tears - and they got my mom in right away and corrected her simple throat stricture on an emergency surgery appointment. This kind of compassion is what this office is about. I have been with these doctors for ten years now - with GERD and Barretts - and they have made my life better - indeed SAVED my mother's life. I am a real person with a long time relationship with this office - Mary, the nurse, who is the kindest person you will ever meet. I am the pickiest patient in Kansas City and the Walden/Snell office is a central part of my health team.

I saw Dr Schnell on a Tues early PM. He sent me for x-rays & blood work. I called to get my results on Wed & Thurs but had no luck. Fri AM I was taken by ambulance to the ER. I had a severe UTI & my blood sugar was very high. The tests ordered showed high white blood count, but since I wasn't told about it, I wasn't treated. As a diabetic, this could've been life threatening. As it was it was very expensive & painful. It was easily prevented-call your patient when test results indicate a problem

Wildly unprofessional and unorganized front office and nursing staff, in particular Jeremy and Mary. $75 cash rate quoted by Mary at the end of 2018 for 5 minutes of the doctor's time simply to get a new standard 12-month Rx for established patient. (New insurance--not in network). 3 ignored phone follow-ups later to confirm rate after appt was set, Jeremy rudely informs me "no one remembers that", new rate is $250. I opt to cancel the appointment, the response was to be hung up on. Avoid.
