Dr. Henry W Snead has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I was super excited to find out about Dr. Snead and that I could get accepted into his program. My BMI was not high enough but my waist was 36. I had such a struggle trying to shed the weight after my 3rd child. I started at 170 pounds and after my fist month I am down to 148. I am so excited to be able to wear some of my old clothes and feel more like myself again. This is the easiet plan I have ever done!! Thank you Dr. Snead!!!
My experience with Dr. Sneed was awful. Our 1st meeting was hopeful but after that it became shame based. In short.. Prior to meeting with him I had lost 50lbs. Became a Fitness professional, while continuing my weight loss journey. While on this journey I Broke my ankle gained some weight back. And I still needed to loose 50lbs. I am a t1 diabetic. So as I visited with him each week he was telling me that I wasn't following his plan. I WAS! Although 400 calories a day became difficult for me. He put me up to 1500 calories a day. Through out our vists he would say things like. " You're not taking care of your diabetes. You're not exercising / walking 30 mins a day" ... Bla bla. So on our last visit, the one that had me leave balling my eyes out. Was this. I come in, lost 5lbs. He comes in with a chip on his shoulder and says, "This program is not working for you." I was surprised. I JUST lost 5 lbs!!! He says, you're not walking 30mins a day." I was like "Im still recovering from a broken ankle. So I'm doing high intensity on a bike & resistance training. 3 days a week until I can build strength back up in my ankle. He was very short with me. And says, "that is not what I wanted you to do. You are not following the program." I was like Ummm But I'm trying. I lost 5 lbs. I reminded him "I AM A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL." I know what I am doing. He said, "I am a doctor, I know what I am talks about. (Well, no you don't because when he showed me some moves at our 1st visit is form was wrong. His reps were wrong. I thought hmmm. Well Maybe I could help him and didn't want to speak up on it during our 1st visit !!) He then said, "I can't get you off your insulin because you're not doing what I say." I was like. I HAVE t1 diabetes YOU WILL NEVER GET ME OFF INSULIN. I had part of my pancreas removed. There is a HUGE difference between t1 and t2. He again said, "I am a doctor." ... He gets up and walks out and leaves me in the room and says, " this program isn't for you." He was mean! He shamed me. He wasn't kind. If he didn't think the program would work he SHOULD have said it in away that honored me. Tell me to keep trying. Let me leave here with a good attitude and still be hopeful. But he made me leave crying. I felt extremely misunderstood. I wasn't heard. And mostly. He just gave up on me. With no room for meeting me where I was at. Not one fits all. BUT his nurse was amazing to me. She is kind! Very professional and I will miss her.
