      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.
      New York, NY |
      I recommend her to everyone! She is excellent! I switched to her when pregnant with my third child and wished I had her as my doc all along, she saved my life during a difficult delivery and her confident, calm,caring manner is excellent.
      in East Amherst, NY |
      I found Dr. Snell to be not only extremely knowledgeable and professional but probably the most kind and compassionate medical person I have ever encountered. She is thorough in her exams, well aware of your history and knows exactly WHO you are, answers any and all questions explaining in "layman's" terms and is empathic to one's concerns and fears.I have recommended and will continue to recommend Dr Snell to many friends and relatives
      in Williamsville |
      She delivered my baby...very friendly and makes you comfortable and eases your worries and concerns. Amazing doctor!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
