Dr. Snyder is not only the kindest and most compassionate doctor I have ever met, but he is a gifted surgeon. He is very conservative with surgeries. He takes his time with your treatment. He will suggest all the ways that you can help alleviate your pain without surgery. If surgery is needed he will educate you on what the procedure will be, and give you an honest assessment of what you can expect . He is a humble man with a great gift whose patients are blessed to have him as their doctor. There can be a wait, but it is well worth it. The time he spends on you is worth every minute of wait time. He will take all the time you need from him.

Dr. Melvin Snyder perform surgery on my neck (C5-C6) during 1994 because of a herniated disc. Immediately after surgery, when I was in the recovery room I knew I was on the road to recovery because I never had to take in meds from that point on and no complaints ever since. The only issue was wearing my neck brace for almost a year and Dr. Synder keep reminding me that I had to prepare myself on getting use to not wearing the brace. Great Doctor!
