*Dr. Snyder talk like he really knows you. He was very interested in my health.Mar 11 2016
I had emailed Dr. Snyder that am and he immediately responded with options to come in that day or the next, my choice. How much better can you get!. He is indeed what UTMB needs more of--a doctor who takes care of his patients--not trying to keep administration or his bosses happy with fluff.Feb 23 2016
