Patient reviews for Dr. David Sniezek
The 1st visit was great. He took the time to speak with me about the pain I was having. However, all subsequent visits I saw him for less than a minute. He would literally perform 2-3 quick adjustments and be done. I've only been to 2 other chiropractors, but it was the least amount of time spent on me. Maybe that's all I needed, so take that for what it's worth.
Very thorough, listened to me and explained a course of treatment.
Wait time was due to first visit. I did notice other patients did not wait long at all.
I was very happy with the immediate relief from severe back pain I was experiencing and was very impressed with Dr Sniezek and staff. They are very professional and kind.
Dr. Sniezek is someone I have seen on other occasions. He is extremely knowledgeable, takes the time to explain his diagnosis and recommendations and then is extremely patient to answer all questions you may have. I'd recommend Dr. Sniezek to anyone.
He is kind, calming, thorough and incredibly skilled. Within a five minute physical evaluation after the initial consulting conversation, he then within seconds of me lying down on the table found my trigger points perfectly. I can't wait to go back!
Dr. Sniezek was great! It was my first time getting an alignment and I felt very comfortable. The staff is very kind and I will definitely going back in the future
He fixed my back after months of pain! Am very happy and pleased with his work.
Professional, competent staff, excellent care from a Dr. who is knowledgeable and caring.
Awesome. Very caring, knowledgeable, and professional.
I have never seen a chiropractor before. This was amazing. I have minor pain and this fixed it immediately. Staff was awesome!!! Doctor was really great but having good staff? Good front desk? That tells me all I need to know.
I learned a lot about my knee condition and the things that I could do to improve it.
Calm, assured bedside manner. I appreciate that he’s an MD/DC with integrative expertise that takes insurance. Overall awesome experience far. Nurses are very polite.
Dr. Sniezek and staff (Edwina and Precious) went right to work dealing with my back pain. The doctor was very attuned to my paperwork and listened intently to me describing my issues. If you NEED a top Chiropractic...do not delay! Get professional care today.
My visit was amazing! Dr. Sniezek listened to my concerns and treated me. He was friendly and had a great surrounding staff. I would highly recommend seeing him if you're suffering from back problems or honestly anything for that matter! He's very professional.
Everyone onsite was professional and very attentive.
Dr Sniezek was wonderful. He was attentive. He quickly recommended a treatment plan, though I didn't feel rushed. The staff was thorough and helpful in determining what my insurance would/would not cover.
I have suffered with low back pain since 2010, and have been to every kind of physician and specialist and No relief yet. After seeing Dr. Sniezek, I have hope that relief is finally in sight. Today was my initial consultation; however, I will return after a few treatments and indicate how well I did with his treatment.
My first appointment and consultation over my back injury. Everyone was well mannered and patient. Staff were friendly and the doctor was well mannered and listened to everything i had to say.
He was very professional, knowledgeable, compassion, empathy, explain everything to me and helpful regarding treatments.
Dr. Sniezek and his staff are honestly the best. I've suffered from back pain for so long and have seen so many doctors in my life, but none compare. They are caring, genuine and efficient. You are always greeted with a smile when you get to the office. They are also extremely accommodating for scheduling. Dr. Sniezek himself is simply the best- he genuinely cares about your pain or problem and will do his best to make you feel comfortable and to treat you. He goes above and beyond for his patients and that is just not something you see anymore. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family members who are suffering from pain or with an injury. I am so greatful that I found this doctor and I will never go back to any other.
Nice doctor! Painless.
He was very friendly and calming and took the time to understand the problem. He suggested I come back several times for treatment, so I won't know until after a few weeks of that whether he will have solved the problem.
Seems knowledgeable but did not really feel cared for
Fantastic...friendly, great office staff, and most of all very competent.
Awesome Doctor and staff. First time I have received quality and genuine care from a doctor in a long time. I have a complex medical history and have struggled to find doctors who cared, were also skilled, and not intimidated by my medical history. This was definitely a positive experience.
Dr. Sniezek is really attentive and thorough. His staff is absolutely fabulous, especially the ladies at the front desk who introduced themselves and took the time to explain my insurance coverage and what I should expect once they file a claim. The doctor's schedule is also very easy to work around when scheduling future appointments. I'm looking forward to getting treated by him regularly as he seems very knowledgeable and comprehensive!
Dr. Sniezek is a competent doctor but I'm not sure it's worth the additional stress to deal with the office and their billing/claim filing practices. I do not enjoy having to "convince" the office staff that they were the ones that are in error rather than myself and/or my insurance company. This happened on more than two occasions.
Direct but friendly. Ready to listen to my concerns and symptoms, addressing potential avenues for care and treatment.
Extremely friendly, professional, prompt staff. Dr. Sniezek takes an active role in the patient diagnosis and treatment, and he and his staff are very personable and take time to understand your problem. I have a few more therapy visits scheduled but I'm totally confident that my problem will be resolved by Dr. Sniezek and his team! Scheduling future therapy appointments was very easy, with many convenient time slots open on the days I needed them.
Dr. Sniezek and his team (Precious in particular) have been an incredible help to me this past month or so. I've had about 6 sessions (patellofemoral pain syndrome) and I am about 99.9% better. I had the kind of pain that would be on and off, sometimes very intense (limping), but I was hesitant to go in. I am so glad I did. The electromagnetic therapy (EMT) and ultrasound heat therapy, along with physical exercises inside and outside of the office have been so helpful. I am extremely thankful to Dr. Sniezek, Precious, and his team. At the next sign of any concerning pain, I would not hesitate to come in immediately and I have already referred close friends to his practice.
I was very fortunate to find Dr. Sniezek. I was in excruciating pain, and he was able to work with me to alleviate it. The staff is also very professional. I never had to wait for an appointment, so that was an added plus. I have already recommended my colleagues who were in a similar situation and he was just as helpful. Please see him if you're in pain.
Was expecting more chiropractic care. Disappointed that I wasn't fully adjusted.
It was an amazing visit. For a long time I put off going to a back and neck doctor out of fear that the doctor would just write me prescriptions to "manage" my pain and not cure me. Dr. Sniezek spent a lot of time with me, identified my problem, and didn't write me a single opioid or other prescription. I was so grateful and for the first time I'm hopeful that I can get better and the pain will end. I highly recommend him. Great, warm, office staff too.
Had a great experience! I've been pretty sick for the past 4 months and was getting very discouraged having many doctors not really listen to my symptoms/problems. Dr. Sniezek took his time to listen and come up with a possible treatment. Everything is going well and I really appreciate his care.
Compassionate and effective. Highly recommended.
Didn't feel rushed at all, he takes his time to get your history and make you feel comfortable, as well as explaining exactly what he will be doing.
A blessing in disguise
They are the best. 20 years plus as patient and love them.
They are excellent so far!
He was simply excellent! Very kind and sympathetic bedside manner. Very thorough exam, which provided feedback to answer so many questions I've had about my condition. His treatment plan seems really appropriate and reasonable. I'm extremely pleased.
