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-stopoffice, 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.

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. Veryfrustrating and unprofessional to not notify me so I could reschedule before driving there and waiting.

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 goesbeyond 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

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 takeseveral 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 timeI 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 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. Savedme a lot of suffering later. I would highly recommend Dr Sneed. He takes the time.

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 feelhe 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 was impressedwith the staff, particularly Dolly because she was extremely competent and skilled at drawing my blood. Also, Alma was very professional, helpful and sweet.

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 bringmy 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!!!

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 hisPA'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 missedan 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.

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 andnothing 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
