Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Snell "In my position as a surgical hospitalist, I only take of urgent and emergent general surgery conditions.  I do not have an elective practice.

I am blessed in that I am able to care for patients regardless of their ability to pay.  I am paid a salary, so my income is not based on the number of cases I do or what insurance a patient has.  I offer an operation solely because I feel the patient needs it.

I approach each patient based on their disease process and feel each patient deserves the same care, unrelated to socioeconomic status."
