Very prompt and courteous. I'd already gone in with a general idea of what was going on, so she answered my questions and sent me on my way with some straightforward solutions. The staff was great too!

Dr. Snell was very professional and had a lovely bedside manner. I saw her for an annual skin screening, which was quick and comfortable. She was also able to take care of an imperfection on my nose and a small miliain the same appointment, which I appreciated. I had one concern that Dr. Snell wasn't able to address, and she happily referred me to the appropriate specialist, who was also great. Highly recommend!

I really like Dr. Snell -- she has a great staff who update and maintain your records so that she is briefed on your background and aware of your reason for coming in when she enters the room. She doesn't tryto sell you on products or cosmetic procedures (uncommon in a dermatologist) and is ready to thoroughly address and speak to any concerns you have regarding prescribed path forward, or alternatives you may wish to discuss. Quick, efficient, but not robotic!

The wait was a little long, but in all honesty I was a few minutes late so that didn't bother me at all. I thought Dr. Snell was kind and straightforward. Because she is a woman of color and of coursea medical doctor, I felt comfortable with her recommendations for my skin. I trust that she knows what's best in terms of growth removal and its effects on pigmentation.

I appreciated Dr. Snell's punctuality, and being seen by her and not a physician assistant (which happened to me at another dermatologist in the NW DC area when I had made an appointment to see an MD). Dr. Snell did nottry sell me tons of products, which I also experienced with the aforementioned dermatologist. She listened to my issues, while an assistant took notes, and recommended simple interventions. All in all, timely and professional. Will return.

Dr. Snell was very nice, though she seemed to be rushing a bit (it seemed like a busy day). The wait time was a bit much. People in DC lead busy lives, and many, like me, go to their appointments ontheir lunch hour. I waited for over 30 minutes to be seen for 5 minutes, and individuals who came in after me were treated long before I was called. Despite it all, everyone who worked there was very pleasant.

Dr. Snell quickly handled the contact dermatitis above my eye. The mail-order pharmacy they use is fantastic! She also noted a mole that I should keep an eye on and diagnosed rosacea, which I didn't realize I had and am now pleased to be treating.

The office is very clean and sleek but feels salesy. That said, no one pushed products on me, and I thought the overall appointment scheduling and visit experience were great. Dr. Snell was nice. She didn't ask many questions but thatcould have been because I went in with a specific need that she addressed promptly - acne and a prescription update - so the appointment only took ~5 minutes. She was thorough with her explanations to my questions. Two notes. The folks at the front desk hard to reach - they won't respond to your voicemails or emails, so you have to call during office hours. At your appointment, be sure to tell them you've completed forms through ZocDoc, or they may ask you to do so again.

Dr. Snell is a terrific dermatologist. My roommate had seen her previously and recommended that I see her for a separate and mysterious rash that I was having. Her and her staff were great and thorough with their assessment and sheoffered a biopsy on the spot for me to help diagnose the idiopathic rash. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Snell and the office staff were all professional and courteous. I arrived early and only had to wait a few minutes. I was there for a suspicious mole, and they removed the mole, walked me through what came next, andscheduled a follow-up appointment for stitches-removal. On the day of the follow-up appointment, I got out of work early and called to see if I could come in early for my appointment. It was no problem, and I was in and out in less than ten minutes. I will very likely return if I have any more dermatology issues.
