There are not sufficient stars to judge Dr. Sniezek's ability and professionalism by. As his patient I can tell you I've never had a better experience with any specialist or doctor ever. He and his staff are amazing, absolutely the very best care you could hope for. He is genuine. The real deal in a world where it's harder and harder to find good care. I would not have the health I have today if it weren't for this incredible man.

Highly skilled, professional, personable, and great communicator. Had partial thyroid removal. There was no post-surgery swelling or bruising . The entire experience and outcome was excellent. Highly recommend. Also, his staff (front desk, scheduler, his medical team) are amazing. They mirror the professionalism of Dr Sniezek. All interactions were very positive. A very effective team

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sniezek! After finding a lump in my neck, I sought some follow up to investigate. It took several months, two dismissive doctors and an ultrasound before I wound up in his care, but Dr. Sniezek was the best I could hope for. I had a right thyroid lobectomy last week, and everything went off without a hitch. He and his PA were both excellent; friendly, warm, responsive and present. This level of care is rare these days! Highly recommend!

Dr Sniezek is an excellent doctor and more than I have ever expected. I got the best care from day one to the very last. He was never to busy to answer any questions. He is tops in his expertise in his field. His patient/doctor relationship couldn't be any better. He loves what he does and it shows. Always takes time for you no matter what. His PA and office staff are excellent. I had full confidence and felt relaxed before surgery because he discussed every detail with me. He. Is. The. Best!

He did a lymph node biopsy on me to see if it was cancerous. He is fantastic as is his PA Jeff Robin. Extremely patient friendly and good at instilling confidence in their ability. I would go to Dr. Sniezek without hesitation for any head & neck surgery I might need in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was referred to Dr. Sniezek for a partial thyroidectomy. I am so impressed with the care I've received pre and post surgery. The office and his PA Dr. Robin have been fantastic. They take the time to answer my questions thoroughly and treat me like a respected partner in my health care decisions. Dr. Sniezek was the second thyroid surgeon I met with prior to surgery and meeting with his team was the first time since discovering the nodule that I felt confident with the care I would receive.

I was referred to Dr. Sniezek by my endrinologist for thyroidectomy and removal of cancerous lymph nodes on my neck. Although he was booked for surgery for the next 3 weeks because of a scheduled trip out of town, he delayed his trip by one day so that he could fit me into his schedule after talking about my case with my endocrinologist. He is an outstanding surgeon and very kind and caring. I was completely confident in his skills and my recovery was very smooth with no complications.

I was referred to Dr. Sniezek from a local Yakima doctor. He met with me on May 13, realized the situation and scheduled parotid surgery on May 27. The surgery lasted five hours. I have had no pain from the surgery, and had drains removed today. I have felt confident in his skills and abilities and have felt myself participating in my care.

Wonderful Doctor. He was great with me explaining all that would happen during and after my surgery. I had left thyroid removed. No cancer was found, Friendly, great bedside manner as does his PA Jeff. I would highly recommend him. My daughter was with me and after surgery he went out to see her and explained what had gone on during surgery. She was very happy with him and the way he told her everything.., I didn't have any complications during surgery. wonder
