Appointment was very easy and Dr. Snell was very professional. My only complaint was that she was in and out in 2 minutes. She tried to extract a pore, but wasn’t able to.

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.

Everybody at the office was very friendly, treated us with respect and professionalism. Dr Sarika was amazing. She took her time with us, examined and explained everything by detail. 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.

She was knowledgeable and personable. Thorough exam; not rushed; good explanations. Office staff are on top of things - organized, welcoming, and friendly. No upsell, just the annual exam (which is getting hard to find these days).

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.
