Verified Patient Reviews
I love her. I can talk to her, she is calm and centered and I trust her. She was beyond my expectations!
Dr Snyder was very professional, and made me feel very comfortable.
I waited for over 3 months for an appointment. When it comes to mental health, sometimes you don't have more than a day.
Excellent Doctor. She was very thorough and gave me the appropriate feedback for my concerns by asking questions that were relevant before giving advice. She spent the time to listen and help me find not only medical solitions but everyday life solutions. In addition she cared about my medical past and current well being dealing with medical present. Aside from medications she helped me see solitions that combined with meds can potentially be of great benefit to increase overall quality of life. She really made me feel normal and like any other stay at home mom pointing out, I'm definitely not alone in some of my struggles. The answer is how I manage them. I highly recommend Dr. Snyder for anyone seeking psychiatric advice for depression, add/ADHD, anxiety, or any other reason when seeking healthy change. Thank you, Dr. Snyder! It was a pleasure meeting with you and I look forward to working with you!
