Patient Comments (5)
in Amherst, NY |
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.
in Orchard park NY |
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.

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 |
