Dr. Snyder is the best. Been a patient of SCOI for many many years. Unfortunately sinceUCLA has gotten involved the costs have gotten much higher!

He is so knowledgeable and kind. I felt like I was being cared for by a close family member. This is the first time in almost 2 years that I am feeling only mild pain. Questions are answered completely and with a detailed explanation that I can easily understand. From my very first visit I felt extreme confidence in Dr Snyder and all his staff.

Dr Snyder and his team are terrific. It is no fun having to get sorted out with an orthopedic problem, but I really felt comfortable trusting these folks. I was given no reason not to. The health loop is really great too. They were super prompt in answering any questions or concerns I had. I can't say enough good about this team!

Dr. Snyder explains everything in a clear and concise manner. It's great to know that he's passing his years of expertise on to new surgeons by having them assist in procedures. I also love the Get Well Loop as it gives you the ability to get answers to any questions very quickly. I highly recommend Dr.Snyder!!! He has repaired both shoulders/rotator cuff/bicep and other issues that came up that were not visible on the MRI. So happy I was able to have him fix me!!!

Dr. Snyder's approach is very professional, caring and human. I felt he cared, understood what I was going through, and was not rushing me into surgery. He explained things very well.

Caring, competent, and compassionate are the first three words that come to mind. Dr. Snyder's knowledge and skill with shoulder arthroscopy are unparalleled. Look no further if your shoulder is compromised or causing problems. He is the best! So grateful to be his patient!

I think that Dr Snyder's office is extremely well run, the wait times were minimal, he takes the time to thoroughly explain what is needed to repair any injury, what the recovery will be and stays in touch before and after the surgery. I think he is terrific and would highly recommend him.

Left shoulder rotator cuff surgery with skin allograft performed 9/2008 by Dr. Stephen Snyder with excellent results. Right rotator cuff surgery with skin allograft, and reattaching of tendon to the bone was performed 14 days ago, April, 2019. All seems to be going well at this time, however Dr.Snyder told me that it was an extensive surgery, and the recovery time would be lengthy.

Dr. Snyder & his team inspire confidence in their patients and their caring & concerned attitude is very reassuring. They take their time explaining in detail the surgical procedures & answering any questions. Post surgery I received emails everyday with reminders of what to do & what to expect & although this is a long & difficult process Dr. Snyder & his team guided the process in the best way possible way. They provided immediate responses to all of my questions. I am very happy I chose them.
