Dr. Snipelisky is FANTASTIC! Very caring & spent a lot of time reading my very complex and many pages of medical history! He answered all my questions & explained his reasoning, which made sense. He treated me like a person, which not all doctors do! It even helped my mental health to speak with him because he was so compassionate & actually spent time going over my history prior to the appointment so that he had time DURING the appointment to listen to me and then give me answers. He's also very knowledgeable about my rare heart defect issues, which is difficult to find! He obviously does his research and is exactly the kind of doctor I would expect to see at a prestigious hospital.
