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 asmile 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.

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.

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 bymy 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 thatare in error rather than myself and/or my insurance company. This happened on more than two occasions.

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 thatwould 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 wasan 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.

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 spenta 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.
