I am in AWE!

I found it pretty incredible that in a 30 appointment, Dr. Snyder was not only able to provide me with all the information I needed, but also connect with me on such a friendly, understanding level. I left the office feeling so happy and hopeful. I only wish I could leave more than 5 stars for Dr. Snyder.

Sorry just a correction of my previous post. My wait time to be seen was never longer than 10 minutes to be called back. Misunderstanding on my part. Where I click over an hour is what they would spend with me in the examine room to make me feel comfortable and cared about my well being. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Snyder and his staff :)

The best at Bariatric Surgery

You will find that Dr Snyder is unlike most other bariatric surgeons in the fact that he is never done with his patients unless they choose to be done with him. He and his staff make the difference between success and failure if you are willing to follow the program actively. I know this for a fact as I have lost 175 lbs in 18 months with absolutely no trouble at all on the program which was monitored every step of the way.
