She was amazing with the delivery of my son and postpartum care. She was patient, kind and gentle. Overall, she was amazing in comparison to my first birth with another doctor.

Please consider going elsewhere if you are having a child. Dr Snell is incompetent, rude and cares only about getting her patients in and out of the office.

Love her. I've been going to her for years. She's so nice and helpful. She's very gentle while doing the exam. Her staff is very friendly and kind also. The only downfall is having to wait a month or two for an appointment.
