As a new patient with a history of skin cancer, I appreciated her attentiveness, thorough body check and frankness. Consultation is preceded with a staff prepping the doctor as to conditions, concerns etc one might have so it makes for aquick and time-effective appointment, which to me is fine. Highly recommend this doctor and the office efficiency.

This is a terrible office. They failed to call in the anti-biotic that I was prescribed, and I wasn't able to receive it before I left the country. Multiple VMs, multiple hour-long waits on hold, still no resolution. Just terrible.

Not that friendly. Her interactions could come off a bit condescending. She is knowledgeable of her craft but she does not offer good suggestions for people of color - or seem to consider the differences in treatment options based on variousfactors. I walked away with lots of prescriptions but no clear explanation as to why. I left feeling unsatisfied.

Dr. Snell was very friendly, right from the second she walked into the room. However, I wasn't too happy with the wait (I had a 10:30 appt and didn't get seen until around 11:15 am, despite other people having checked infor later appts after me and being seen before me)

This was my first visit with Dr. Snell. She and her assistant were very thorough, professional, and good listeners. Unlike some doctors' visits, this one did not feel rushed. Dr. Snell answered all my questions, gave me requested referrals,and prescribed appropriate tests and medications. I was very pleased and will recommend her without hesitation!

Probably one of the worst experiences I have ever had with a doctor. Very alarmist . Does not take the time to take the whole context of the patient’s history when determining a course of action. I train medical students onbedside manner and compassionate care and although Dr. Snell is friendly, she is completely unprofessional in the way she spoke to me and the way she handled my concerns. This is a review for the medical side, not cosmetic. Do not see this doctor if you experience health anxiety because of the alarmist approach. I am very proactive about health but I felt she took it to another level.

This was the first time I was seen by the Dermatologist andnot by medical assistant as many Doctors tend to do. Recommend this place 100%.

Don't feel like she is a true partner in my health. After months going to multiple docs at this practice I gave up and found a better doc who actually listens and cares about making me better. If you go here,prepare to go in and have a bunch of prescriptions thrown at you. Dr Snell visibly wants to be in-and-out of the exam room, and appears put-out when the patient asks clarifying questions. Never felt good or empowered to get better leaving this office - only left feeling confused and a little more broke.

Wait time was kind of frustrating considering I arrived early and a handful of patients who arrived after me when in before me. However, Dr. Snell is thorough and efficient, seems to care very much about doing her job well and taking care of her patients.

As with other docs at this practice, my visit felt rushed, I got unsatisfactory answers to questions, and I left with multiple new prescriptions that I didn't understand. Every time I come to this practice it's such a whirlwind that Ileave feeling confused and rushed, and with multiple new prescriptions/diagnoses and no continuity between visits/earlier diagnoses. The medical assistant staff is excellent but the docs need to spend more time with patients.

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.
