I was a self-pay for my surgery. Dr. Snow was a competent surgeon. Aftercare, however, was poor ( by him.) He missed 3 of my appts, the last after he made a point of promising he'd be there. After surgery I feel he loses complete interest. His dietician is good & APN is excellent. Office staff kept trying to bill my insurance despite my having paid for all services in advance. Discouraging & too far to drive for such a lack of physican investment in my care.

Just a follow up- Dr. Snow actually called me himself, not to fix anything or apologize, but to tell ME how unprofessional I have been with his staff!! Lol! Unfortunately I had to remind him that I didn’t need to be ‘professional’ because I WAS A PATIENT!! Then he went on to cry about the fact he only got 13 minutes today for lunch! I reminded him that If he does 5 surgeries in a day- even if he gets to keep HALF what he charges that’s 25K a day. His staff supposedly tried to call me don end of time and said they couldn’t get through- yet when he called the First Time the call MIRACULOUSLY went through! What a bunch of hooey!! He was only interested in giving me referrals- which I definitely don’t need. I’ve been in the surgical setting 27 years and I’m fully capable of finding someone else to take my money.

Please stay as far away from this horrific practice as you can- it took me months to even get anyone to contact me- then when they did Dr. Snow was 45 minutes late to my video appointment and got annoyed bc I didn’t just say “oh no problem! Your welcome to waste my time as much as you’d like!” And then basically told me to get lost. Unbelievably unprofessional. I’ve worked in surgery 27 years and I have never in my life seen a practice or surgeon behave this way toward a patient. Brianna is no help, and don’t bother with Loretta the practice manager. All useless and ineffective. Go ANYWHERE else- these people cannot be trusted.

Dr. Snow is down to earth, professional and has a great bedside manner. He immediately made me feel comfortable. I had the gastric sleeve procedure and had no post-op pain or nausea. My husband was able to stay with me in my private room. All of the nurses were attentive and supportive also. All of the office staff are great also. You are in good hands with Dr. Snow and the St. Louis Bariatric Center.

Dr snow and after spent time with me to explain all my options. His PA took a lot of time after surgery when I was really sick and could not drink or eat anything. She made sure to follow up with me to make sure things were getting better.

I've had nothing but a positive experience with the sleeve surgery, Dr. Snow and office staff. It was easier with better results than I had anticipated by far. The only things I miss are my Pepsi and drinking while I eat. I was told I'd lose 60 lbs. I said that wasn't enough so I'd have to do more & I did by walking 3+ miles every day & have maintained approx. 80 lbs for 1.5 years & counting. I felt like I'd been trapped inside a fat suit that I just couldn't find the zipper to get out. Now, I'm the person I knew was in there all along. I just wish I hadn't waited so long.

Dr Snow is amazing. Treated me like family. Made sure I was informed and ready for my surgery. He truly has a heart of gold and goes above and beyond for his patients. Highly recommend him. I followed his instructions and my recovery was flawless. Like I didn’t even have surgery! He is well educated. Up to date. All around great Dr. His staff is phenomenal as well. Everything went smooth and all my questions were answered before I even asked them. I wish all practices could be this well established. Dr. Snow and his team truly set me up for success.

With this being a huge decision in my life, Dr. Snow and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable about the direction I was going. Throughout the whole process leading up to my surgery I never had any second thoughts and was totally at ease with Dr. Snow performing this procedure on me. He also repaired a Hiatal Hernia while he was doing my sleeve (I was unaware before my Endoscopy that I even had the hernia) alleviating any future hernia visits!! I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Snow and his staff for your weight loss needs!!

I love Dr. Snow and his staff! They are amazing and so friendly. Very upfront about all tests, fees, etc as I was a private pay patient. They even offered to help me talk to insurance again/figure out a loan. Every time I have a question or concern his staff is right there with me on my journey. I was sleeved 3.6.19
