SNYDER, JENNIFER does not have an adequate amount of comments to generate the sentiment analysis.
Dr Snider is part of a three person team treating my husband for a rare and aggressive brain tumor. So far were very pleased with her treatment of us, including her offering to read two new studies I found related to my husbands condition during her vacation. Most doctors so far have not been open to patient research online, but Dr Snider didnt give me the usual advice to stay off the internet. She has made me feel a part of the team searching for a cure, rather than a desperate wife grabbing at straws. Btw, We were NOT instructed to call her Dr. Snider, nor were we told we could only discuss one issue with her. Dr Snider is a blessing in our journey with this cancer and I recommend her w/out reservation. She has taken extra time to assist in referring my husband to Mayo clinic for possible treatment with this tumor. What more can we ask.
The first thing that bothered my fiance and I when we went to the first appointment was that her office has a sign stating you should always refer to her as DR Snyderc and never Jennifer. While trivial to most, as many doctors as weve seen that was a red flag. Its hard to even start getting comfortable with a physician that essentially demands formality at all times. She also spends essentially no time in the room with the patient. My fiancÃ© and I ate both disabled and it takes a while to go through our health history during the first appointment, and some conditions need to be discussed at every visit if theyre going to be improved or treated properly. Dr. Snyder essentially allows the discussion of one single issue per visit. I understand that doctors dont want to keep other patients waiting, but with my primary I am able to address a new problem and discuss updates on preexisting problems, and my appointments take no special scheduling,just s normal appointment length. The staff are rude at check in, and if you are even slightly late to the check in time (which is 15 minutes before your actual appointment) they will flatly refuse to see you. We were 3 minutes late to the check in time due to a backup in traffic resulting from a car crash, called and informed them off what had happened as soon as we realized it wasnt a slow light, and called again once we were passed the wreckage to give them an ETA. We arrived 3 minutes after the check in time, and were told we were late and had missed the appointment. I prorated on my fiancÃ©s behalf. I was told that the 15 minutes were to get weight and vitals and for the nurse to write down what the visit was in regards to. Having a general idea of how long that takes and some medical knowledge, the nurse (who was checking with Dr Snyder periodically to relay her word on the matter) the nurse and staff continued to argue with me as to if it was possible to get her vitals and reason for visit in 12 minutes rather than 15, until 10 minuets after her scheduled appointment time when we finally gave up because the offered us a cancelation that had just opened. The Dr herself treats anything said as either an exaggeration or a lie, and will frequently refuse to give referrals to specialists that deal width issues my fiancÃ© had had well documented over the years. The office is also horribly slow at prescription refills, taking as long as two weeks to call back regarding refills for a generic allergy medication (which we get add an Rx because we are very strained for money and have a $1 copay for a one month supply) that we could literally turn around and grab a two week supply of for 88 cents. So it seems you have to call a about your next refill as soon as you fill your last one to keep things timely. If waiting to get medication refills was an issue, then dont even try to get an appointment in a timely manner. The soonest she had ever been avaliable is one month, even in time sensitive issues. Expect to spend most of your time and money on urgent care and the ER if you have her as a primary care practitioner, because your problem will not be addressed by her ant sooner that about three months. Hard to build a relationship with a Dr you can never get in to see. The only thing shes good for its a flu shot and yearly check up. Beyond that shes in over her head and dragging you down with her.
