I feel very taken care of at Dr. Snyder's office. Dr. Snyder is very personable. His staff is professional and informative. My surgery is scheduled and Dr Snyder is performing a gastric sleeve. I feel very confident that all will go well at Rose Hosipal.

Dr Snyder and staff are awesome! They really care about each and every patient. They take time to make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision and answered every question. Best decision I've ever made.
Denver, CO |
I researched surgery for four years. I am also a member of several online boards so I get to hear from people all over the country regarding their experiences and outcomes. After choosing Dr. Snyder and undergoing his procedure as well as experiencing the pre and post op care I feel extremely confident that his office and staff are the best. Due to his and the professionals he works with, excellent care my recovery was quick,my weight loss is ahead of others and I feel amazing.
Longmont, CO |
Dr Snyder makes you feel at ease and is so friendly. Admitting you need help can be overwhelming and he realizes that it took every bit of your courage to follow all the steps to see him. It feels good to be treated with the utmost care and respect. The office staff is just as respectful and friendly with their interactions with me. Going thru this process and the necessary paperwork can be frustrating and time consuming. The staff realizes this and tries to answer every question diligently.

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.
in Northglenn, CO |
Dr. Snyder and his group are wonderful folks that make you feel immediately welcome and at ease.
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.
in Golden, Co |
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.
in Denver, CO |
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.
