Straight to the point and very efficient.
Dr. Sneed has been my primary doctor for several years and has always taken the time to answer my questions and explain his suggestions and guidance.
Dr. Sneed is smart, sees the big picture as far as a person's health. He is so kind, but also no-nonsense. He is frank and does not leave a patient wondering what the next step should be. This is a one-stop office, which for our busy lives is such a relief to me. I love Dr. Sneed. As a bonus, his office staff and nurses are the best I have ever encountered.
Dr. Sneed and his staff are the best! Since he has been my primary care physician, I have lost 80 lbs.
Am long term patient. I like that there is walk-in times in early am.
This is the second time I've been there for an appointment and the office wasn't prepared which is a waste of my time .Today I was there for a follow up to blood work and there was no bloodwork report. Very frustrating and unprofessional to not notify me so I could reschedule before driving there and waiting.
I found Dr. Sneed to be caring,intelligent, and articulate, he provided me with straight answers to my questions, even the ones I didn't want to hear. I feel like my chances of a quick recovery are better under his care, more so than my previous care givers.
Dr. Sneed has been very patient with my complicated case. I came to him with lots of test results from different providers. He takes his time and I never feel like he is trying to rush to see his next patient. I am feeling better, feel like he is concerned about my overall well-being and know that I am finally on track to feeling my best, again.
The wait time was fine, considering it was a crazy Friday with lots of people in and out of the office. Dr. Sneed is extraordinary a long primary physicians. First, he is an osteopath, which means his integrative orientation goes beyond The scope of typical Western medicine. This expanded purview has been critical to fine-tuning my physical and mental health during the six years I have Seen him. And his personal interest in me is rare I'm on primary doctors. I am truly grateful to have had him
I was early for my appointment and they got me in early! Service was fast. Dr Sneed is always great. Helpful staff. Quick in and out. Thank you!
Dr. Sneed gives you his full attention. I feel that Dr. Sneed is not only my Doctor but also my friend. Over the years I have received advice from Dr. Sneed that has changed many unhealthy habits of mine. Dr. Sneed is well read and well informed. I feel that I am very healthy. I attribute this to the treatment I have received from Dr. Sneed.
He listened attentively and provided clear instructions on the next steps. He answered all of my questions thoroughly. His philosophy seems to be: treat the cause, not the symptoms.
My wife and I have significant health issues so we get consecutive appointments. As always, Dr. Sneed was very patient and thorough and took the time to listen to our requests and explain the reasons for his responses. We both take several medications and he took the time to review and discuss the need and purpose for them and answer all our questions. Occasionally Dr. Sneed is not available and we see Dr. Dale. We have complete confidence in both and would recommend either. Noel and Janell R.
I visited Dr. Sneed for the first time today and the entire experience was exceptional. He was genuine, asked me questions specific to my concerns etc, and had terrific bedside manner. I had to provide blood samples (and faint every time I do) so with the nurses aware, they made me feel incredibly comfortable -- and I didn't pass out :) I highly recommend Dr. Sneed and staff.
Dr. Sneed is the greatest. I have been his patient for over 10 years, and I always appreciate his bedside manner, how well he listens, and how safe I feel in his care. I could not recommend Dr. Sneed enough for all your healthcare needs. Extremely trustworthy and professional.
I've been with Dr. Sneed since 1989 because I think he's an amazingly good doctor. Wait times and bedside manner stuff is just fine as well.
Dr Sneed is one of the few doctors that I have met that really take the time to test and explore for preventative health. He was able to warn me of a pre-diabetes diagnosis and coach me into beating it. Saved me a lot of suffering later. I would highly recommend Dr Sneed. He takes the time.
dr. Sneeds office was comfortable and immaculate. his staff greeted me with a smile as did he. there was LITERALLY no wait time. this was my first meeting with him and he was incredibly easy to talk to. he asked a lot of questions and provided valuable feedback. he had extensive knowledge of the different options for me and had no problem explaining them to me. i was also impressedby how much time he spent with me. i would recommend him in a heart beat.
I always enjoy Dr Sneed. I think he looks at the whole picture of whats going on and he is very thorough in his assessments of my health.
Dr. Sneed is a great doctor and he really knows what he's doing. . Everyone is always friendly and responsive. They really do offer a variety of wellness services and supplements so it's a one stop shop!
Dr Sneed is always professional, courteous and knowledgeable. That's why I have been a patient of his for 9 years.
I was very impressed with Dr. Snead's explanation of how we go forward treating my symptoms. We first wanted to rule out any conflicts that might occur with current medications.
Dr. David Sneed keeps up-to-date on the latest medical advancements, which he uses to provide excellent service to his patients.
I was continually give incorrect information by Dr Sneeds staff and when I brought it to his attention, he didn't want to hear about it. After being given erroneous information on multiply occasions, I didn't trust my health in his hands.
Dr Sneed is a excellent doctor. The ladies at the front were very helpful.
Dr Sneed is very proactive in dealing with my health
Dr sneed is office is very professional and friendly! You don't have to wait and your needs will all be met!
Dr. Sneed is a great doctor. He spent time with me to understand my concerns and I never felt rushed. He makes every patient feel special.
He is the total professional. Extremely thorough.
It was a good and positive one.
I have been to several doctor's over the past year due to chronic pain. Every time I left a doctor's office, I drove home in tears. Today I drove home smiling. Dr. Sneed is the first doctor to make me feel he would do whatever it takes to diagnose me. He looked at me and sincerely said, "We!ll take good care of you." I don't think most doctor's understand how important those words are to someone in unexplained pain. Thank you, Dr. Sneed!
I have been a patient in their clinic since 2015 and always get right in for my app't. Yesterday however, I did have an extended wait which is quite unusual. Other than that one experience, Dr. Sneed has done an excellent job of picking up on my healthcare where my last primary care left off.
Very impressive. Dr. David is very likable.
Have been using Dr, Sneed over 20 yrs. He is very kind and compassionate.. Takes time to know his patients. Highly recommend very knowledgeable and up to date with medicine.
My first visit with Dr. Sneed was excellent. He took the time to understand my personal history and my concerns and mapped out a game plan to get more information about my health and what is needed. I was impressed with the staff, particularly Dolly because she was extremely competent and skilled at drawing my blood. Also, Alma was very professional, helpful and sweet. The whole staff is friendly. Ginger M.
Dr. Sneed has been my family physician (for my husband and myself) for over 25 years. We have followed him through all his moves and staff changes. His office staff is always happy, helpful and efficient. His nursing staff, and his PA's are exceptional and professional. Even if you are feeling poorly when you arrive at Dr. Sneed's office, you always leave feeling much better! And that is before you start taking your prescriptions. His Physicians Assistants take compassionate and professional care of you. I am happy to see one of them if I can't get an appointment to see Dr. Sneed. I sure hope he never gives up his day job!!
I have not had a physician belittle me, as did Dr. Snede. His parting words were him telling me to come back for three additional appointments solely for him to get on board with my prescribed meds. Dr. Snede never missed an opportunity for his sole objective... to generate additional appointments and income for his company. There was no compassion, no direction towards what was best for my body after three appointments. To add insult, he kept me waiting an hour or longer for each of my appointments. None of this is exaggerated. I will not be seeing him after my September 12th's final appointment. Sara J.
Never feel rushed. Very caring
He is amazing. He always takes my concerns seriously and does everything in his power to help me understand and fix whatever is ailing me.
Dr. Sneed is a credit to his field, as a newer patient I was astounded at the thorough and dedicated attention I was given by not only him, but the entire office staff. At my last appointment I had to bring my 3 year old son who screamed the entire time- yikes!! But dr. Sneed was so patient and understanding as well as his staff. That reaction coupled with his medical expertise will keep me coming back for years. A++++++ thank you Dr. Sneed!!!
Extremely thorough and professional.
I trust Dr. Sneed. He never rushes and will take time to answer all questions. He is encouraging but also tells it like it is. He remembers you and makes you feel like the only patient in the office. His nurses are top notch and extremely professional. Highly recommended!
Very attentive, concerned and pleasant.
Only had to wait a few minutes to be seen. Dr. Sneed was (and always is) very good about explaining things and going over options. I feel very trusting around him
Excellent physician and kind office staff.
Dr. Sneed is a very caring, brilliant and really loves what he does! He gives full attention to his patients and is approachable. My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Sneed for over 25 years which should say a lot!
David is very capable physician who listens and takes some time just to know you as a person, not just a patient.
Dr. Sneed took the time to listen to me and actually ran a battery of tests to diagnose me. (Fifteen years, 4 different specialists and none of them did this. They just kept throwing pills at me, upping the dosage and nothing changed.) After a few months of receiving treatment from Dr. Sneed and his staff, there is a very noticeable, positive change in my health. I feel better than I have in 18 years and I am confident that the right doctor finally has me on the right track. I would recommend him to anybody, and do recommend him to my closest friends and loved ones. There's a good one left, folks. - Evan L
While Dr. Sneed was seemingly caring and thorough on our first visit, on my 2nd visit (6/10/16) he was abrupt and condescending. Previously he had ordered extensive blood tests, and when I visited for the follow up on 6/10, he rushed through the results, some of which had an emotional pull, such as the possibility of Lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Having had a friend who died of Lupus, as well as trying to process all of the medical descriptions he was giving, at one point I asked for clarification, and he looked at me and said flatly: "I don't have time to restate everything I just said." He did not seem to care about my well being in the slightest, and on the contrary seemed to want to rush through the appointment, like he was running a cash machine. Furthermore, when I was leaving the office and asked for information on my thyroid results, the nurse handed me a big packet labeled "Diagnostic Report for ----(insert my name)." He did not go over this report with me at all, and honestly if I had not asked for it, probably would not have even received it. In addition, there were areas in the report that were reported as cautionary, that he never even mentioned. I would like some written materials specifically about the problem he said I had: chronic inflammation of the thyroid, with autoimmune disfunction.
Great ! Has nice staff as well
Best bedside manner in Austin. Very professional.
Office was excellent! All staff were personable and efficient. Doctor has a great bedside manner and truly listens.
He is such a compassionate doctor! I am thankful that God directed me to him!
As always, Dr. Sneed was professional, and knowledgable. I never feel rushed when visiting Dr. Sneed. I thank Dr. Sneed for taking care of me over these many years. Ed
Went in for a physical with Dr. Sneed for the first time and found him to be very through and seemed to be dedicated to his practice. The whole staff was professional and polite. This was my first time to go there and was impressed.
I continue to find Dr Sneed and staff to be patient oriented and thorough as well as courteous.
I have been a patient of Dr. Sneed for about 18 years. Besides being extremely easy to talk with, he stays knowledgable about current and emerging technology which does nothing but cement the trusting relationship.
Dr. Sneed is always able to identify and treat the smallest health issues before they become major. His focus on preventive medicine is greatly advanced. Making certain all of his patients' concerns are fully addressed is highly important to him, and I never leave his office with unanswered questions.
First visit. I liked the fact Dr. Sneed thinks outside the traditional box of Western medicine. He is very thorough, good explanations and offers excellent options of testing so you can see the whole picture of your body and what you need to be healthy and prevent illness as opposed to waiting for the onset of illness and disease. In my opinion, good health is a combination of healthy lifestyle choices not just a prescription pad and pen. I have been searching for a innovative Dr. like David Sneed and so far I am impressed. And on another positive note he takes Medicare patients and files medical insurance.
Dr. Sneed is a complete professional. I have relied on him for advice and treatment for many years. When you visit Dr. Sneed you never feel rushed. You have his full attention. I am 84 years old and feel that I have arrived at this age healthy and fit due to Dr. Sneed's guidance.
The visit went well and quick. What i was disappointed in was the wait with the lab work i waited 25 minutes for the technician to draw my blood, which i thought was quite long.
It was as usual--quick, complete, reliable. He is the best doctor I have ever had and I totally trust him. And he is so easy to talk to and work with. It almost makes going to the doctor fun. I have been going to him for several years.
Dr. Sneed is great. Curtis F

Doctor Sneed has seen me with compassionate care for over four years. HE IS THE BEST!!!
Dr. Sneed has managed to continue a high level of care and attention in an industry that has increasingly become high volume/ low care. I deeply appreciate his commitment to not only quality consults but classic customer service. I highly recommend Austin Family Medicine.

I've been seeing Dr. Sneed for over a year now. And he's always Took the time to explain everything to me where I could understand it. He's a very caring doctor.

Dr Sneed is always considerate, professional and thorough. I like his proactive approach. I always feel I am getting the best care.
I wish I was able to spend more than 20 minutes with Dr Sneed. I had a lot of questions about my health. Twenty minutes are hardly enough. Is there a better way for the patient to be heard? Emails? Other doctors ?
Dr. Sneed took the time to talk to me, and more importantly, listen to me. I highly recommend this doctor for any and all needs that adults may have in their lives.
Great Dr. Took time to talk with me and was not rushed. Seemed very genuine.
