I always measure the success of my medical experiences on first impressions, if I felt my voice was heard during the process, and the level of safety in which I can entrust my concerns/needs. I am very happy with the outcome of this visit.

Dr Snyder is a breath of fresh air in the orthopedic healthcare arena. His knowledge is outstanding and his recommendations are based on what is best for the patient LONG TERM. He takes into consideration the life style and physicality of his patient rather than what may or may not be the easiest...more
