in Stevensville, MI |
I appreciated that Dr Snipes was patient with my questions. He was responsive to my phone calls. He was very willing to talk about treatment alternatives. He cared about how much things could cost. My daughter-in-law is a nurse and says that Dr. Snipes enjoys a very good reputation. I recommend him.
