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.
in Jacksonville, FL |
From my first appointment with Dr. Snyder, it has been a tremendously positive experience.....I am thrilled to have finally addressed my shoulder issue, and couldn't have asked for a better doctor/practice. Thank you!
in Ponte Vedra, FL |
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 for him. My experience with having both shoulders replaced has been excellent. Joint replacement can be a frightening experience but Dr Snyder's expertise gives the patient confidence to move forward.

Could not ask for a better surgeon!!! Very knowledgeable, very friendly, does not rush you and takes the time to answer your questions.

Doc is caring, takes time and listens, shows compassion and is sympathetic , He makes sure YOU understand in detail what is going on, what he is doing to help you, what his plan of action is and listens to how you feel about the course he is taking. Makes sure that you both are on the same level as to your illness.

I had such a great experience with the whole office. from the very first call to schedule with Jessica and Zach. to my procedure for my torn ACL. Still to this day i hav eno idea how i tore it. if my driver was early for an appt. and i called to see if i could get seen earlier Zach always made room for me. Even the on call Dr was so friendly and patient, when i called because my pain level was high or my knee had the infection. They were right on top of it.

Dr Snyder respectful and explain what he's going to do and come talk to you before he do the procedure the day of surgery.
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr.Snyder & his staff are professional & friendly. I feel that they go the extra mile to give me an appointment when I am in pain. They will take all the time you need for an explanation of the procedure or recommended treatment plan. He is a good listener & relates to a patient's fear of pain, needles, hospitals, etc.
