Gets to the reason your there. Honest about why your there and does not give excuses or reasons to dissuade your decision. Very professional and is sure of his abilities as a surgeon.

I loved Dr Snyder. Wish more doctors were like him.
Longmont, CO |
Dr. Snyder was not only very pleasant but very thorough and knowledgeable. He explained the process and procedures completely and my wife and I left with an extremely high comfort level. He is down to earth, yet communicates with authority and poise. Very few physicians/surgeons have instilled the confidence level to me that he did.

Dr. Snyder and his group are wonderful folks that make you feel immediately welcome and at ease.
in Golden CO |
I was very pleased with the meeting with Dr Snyder. I came away well informed and able to see myself doing surgery.
That is great to hear! Thank you for sharing your experience.
in Denver, CO |
The after care is horrible. They have cattle call appointments that you have to go to. If you miss they can never fit you in. Often appointments are cancelled and instead the do a phone appointment. After the surgery you never see Dr. Snyder again just a nurse practitioner. This is the most agrivating doctors office I have ever been to. The office staff is really not helpful and they don't seem to care at all. Especially the main receptionist. Rude is an understatement.

Dr. Michael Snyder is an absolute God send. My life was changed by this man and my faith. I am 7 months out lost nearly a 100 lbs! the pain and suffering in my body was unreal, I hated my self everyday. I don't think i could of found a better surgeon.

Dr, Snyder was organized, compassionate, highly competent and the best bariatric surgeon in Colorado. He knows what he is doing and is surrounded by a highly professional group of people who get the job done. He exceeds expectations.
