I loved doctor Snell. She took the time to explain what she was doing and gave me great advice on sunscreen. I'll definitely be going back.
Dr. Snell was very professional and thoughtful in the best course of action. I'm excited to see if this course of action works!
She did not spend much time discussing my problems and options to solve it. My wait time was very long. It felt like a money making business place.
Dr. Snell is fantastic! She addressed my questions directly but was sensitive to my concerns. I left feeling confident that I was getting the best professional care possible.
Great doctor would highly recommend to any one.
She was very thorough and understanding, she explained everything she was doing and didn't seem rushed. She seemed like she cared and was very friendly. I'd highly recommend her.
Very kind, professional, and expedient. Highly recommended.
She was very personable and knowledgeable.
Waited about 5 minutes after my appointment time to be taken back. Dr. Snell was really thorough and spent a lot of time with me. She did a full body scan for moles, answered all of my questions, and gave me really specific instruction. Definitely recommend!
She was fast, knowledgeable, careful— I appreciated her urgency and can’t wait to see how her treatments help.
She was very attentive and made sure I got all my questions answered. I would highly recommend Dr Snell.
She was very efficient but also made sure I had a chance to ask every question on me (long) list before I left. I would definitely recommend having a list as she moves along quite quickly but she explained everything in detail and made fully sure I was able to ask all of my questions.
She was awesome with literally being called within 5 minutes.
My visit was thorough and quick. All of the staff was extremely professional and friendly. Very glad to have found them!
Quick to the point.
Dr. Snell was lovely, quick, efficient, informative, and empathetic. She gave me a quick answer to my concerns, ensured I had all the information I needed, and was kind and responsive. I highly recommend Dr Snell and look forward to continuing to see her as my dermatologist.
The office staff, nurses, and Dr. Snell were all very kind, patient, and put me at ease. Very clean and modern office space. Would highly recommend this practice and Dr. Snell.
Dr. Snell was amazing. She asked a lot of questions and was super attentive to my dermatology concerns. I was in very good hands. I'm so glad I found her!
My appointment with Dr. Snell went really well. The staff is friendly and check-in was super fast and easy. I was seen within 5 minutes of arrival. Dr.Snell was really nice. She didn’t rush through the appointment and I felt comfortable asking as many questions as I needed to. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back!
Had the sense everyone in office wss invested in me. Very professional.
Maybe it was just me, but it seemed like Dr. Snell was nervous; this left me concerned that I might not have received a thorough screening
Dr. Snell was great. I've never had a full skin check before and she made the process quick and comfortable.
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 she offered a biopsy on the spot for me to help diagnose the idiopathic rash. I would highly recommend her.
The office was very friendly and easy to find. I was seen right away and was very pleased with the help Dr Snell gave me.
Dr. Snell was friendly and very descriptive regarding the treatment she wanted me to try. I left feeling well informed.
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, and scheduled 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.
Appointment was on time but felt very rushed. I spent maximum 1 minute with Dr. Snell whose first words after introducing herself were what medicine she planned to give me. Very little explanation - didn't feel like I was really heard. If you know what you need and are comfortable with your skincare needs then go to her! Otherwise, I would pick someone who spends more than 1 minute with their patients.
This was only my first visit and I only asked high-level questions but Dr. Snell seemed efficient, kind, and generally knowledgeable. I was impressed that she was aware of some nutritional linkages to adult acne -- there are some industry-accepted studies on that now but it's still on the newer side of the field and doctors didn't use to talk about it. For those interested, the guidance was to avoid dairy (especially products with whey in them) and foods that are high on the glycemic index, and that there may be some reason to suspect a linkage to gluten, too (although further experiments are needed on the latter). Good luck and clear skin to all!
Dr. Snell was great! Office was excellent, staff was awesome, see on time, and helped me tremendously. Can't recommend her enough.
Great experience at this office. Was seen promptly, Dr. was thorough and polite.
Dr Snell is amazing!!! She discovered a cancerous "dry spot" on my arm that THREE other dermatologists told me was "nothing". She has been so wonderful throughout the process of removing it and treating it. I highly recommend her!
Sarika was very friendly and open to answering any questions I had. I didn't wait at all, I was seen right when my appointment was scheduled for. Highly recommend!
Dr. Snell was great, she was very quick and efficient when giving me a derm checkup. I had a mole removed which was also very quick and painless. Would be happy to go to her again. The only downside was the about 30 minute wait.
Dr Snell and her assistant were wonderful. It was my first time at a dermatologist and they made me feel very comfortable and answered my assortment of questions. I’d highly recommend Dr Snell for any first timers.
Great experience. Came in pretty frustrated and helpless due to several chronic illnesses I've been going through and believed I would only get regular to poor solutions (based on previous experiences with other doctors). However, both the nurse and Dr. Snell had great bedside manner, great listener, and helped me with a treatment that was most comfortable for me and my situation. I recommend!
Actually, an outstanding visit. I was nervous about attention to detail as with any doctor these days, but Dr. Snell was really great.
Very professional and personable doctor, with excellent nurses. The front office staff are also very friendly, and the office is modern and very organized. They also have appointments starting at 7:00 AM, which is very helpful.
Great initial appointment. Helpful, nice staff. The doctor treated my problems right away.
Dr. Snell was very sweet, she did a really thorough job in regards to my problem.
I was so impressed with Dr. Snell - she was very attentive, kind, and efficient!
