Dr. SNOWBALL has been treating me for well over 3 years for a variety of problems. We actually travel over an hour from New York to Connecticut to see her on an every other week basis. She has helped me immeasurably with my fibromyalgia and arthritis Plus other injuries I have sustained as an athlete. I find her and her therapists to be very knowledgeable and experienced. Dr. SNOWBALL and Vinnie are very caring and concerned with our health and well-being. We always feel better after we leave the office. The office is immaculate and warm. the equipment is very up-to- date as compared to other offices I have been to. The staff is always welcoming, courteous and kind.

Dr. Snowball has helped me greatly. Because of her expertise as a pain and rehabilitation specialist, she has kept me from pain and having to undergo knee and hip replacements and any other surgeries with her procedures. She is extremely knowledgeable about how the human body and muscles work. When necessary, she refers physical therapy, massage and any other referrals she deems necessary. She takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns and is very caring. Maria Fecher

Terrible! I consulted her for pain in my hand. She guided her Assistant “Avi” to inject cortisone into my elbow. When Avi injected into my elbow, I felt excruciating pain. My fingers were numb for weeks and still partially numb. Since then, I have consulted several doctors, and they opine that her Assistant’s injection to my elbow may have caused major trauma to my hand” and "may cause permanent damage to my hand". Overall, my visits to Dr. Snowball were terrible. She ruined my hand.

Dr. Snowball has a unique style to medicine - she takes time! She spent almost 45 minutes with me in order to fully understand the entire picture of my pain. She then customized her approach to what would be most beneficial to me. For the first time in ages, I am pain-free! Highly recommend her!!!

Dr Snowball takes time to assess the best course of treatment which sometimes makes for long waits. She keeps trying until she hits on a successful course of action. I think the office gets a little disorganized when a patient is trying to see the doctor, a physical therapist and a massage therapist but her approach is effective. A little patience is required. A little better office management would help.

Dr Snowball lacks any level of patient respect or bedside manner. Additionally, I saw her for 6 months for a vertebral disc issue, and not only was she unable to cure the problem, she and her team (PT / massage therapist) more than once made matters worse. There are plenty of other options to explore for pain management, and i suggest you explore them as opposed to becoming a patient of hers.

I have suffered from debilitating back pain for nearly 10 years. I have seen every expert there is. Dr. Snowball's advice and specialist recommendations have been the only ones to date that have yielded measurable relief!! She does talk quickly, but spends lots of time with me. She has a unique approach to body mechanics that are logical and sound. Some of the procedures, like the hyaluronic acid, were unfamiliar to me but helped my knee 100% and I am a skeptic!

Dr. Snowball is a caring compassionate doctor. She help me get back on my feet and stay there. She is one of the smartest doctors I've ever been to. Dr Snowball always has an answer for a problem she never tells you she can't or there is nothing to help. I would recommend dr. Snowball to everybody I know.
