14/05/11 3 3 1 1 This doctor gave me all the wrong information about my condition, and then sent me to a neurosurgeon. When the neurosurgeon heard what Dr Snook said to me, none of it was correct. He sends me back to Dr Snook, who takes back everything he told me. He also told me I had low blood pressure, and put me on medication for it. I don't have low blood pressure; with all my other doctors my blood pressure has never been low. He just didn't know how to help me, so he grasped at straws. Another doctor eventually helped me.

29/04/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Snook is extremely intelligent and he has a fantastic personality. He gives you his full attention, and seems to have unlimited time for you. He is very charismatic and comes across as genuinely concerned about you and your well being. He does run late, but I suspect that is because of the amount of time he spends with his other patients.

20/06/08 4 4 5 5 I would highly recommend Dr. Snook. He makes me feel very comfortable and doesn't make me feel stupid at all. Time never seems to be an issue, taking as long as I need. Dr. Snook seems to be actively researching and brainstorming with collegues to find the answers to my problems. He is not afraid to say that he doesn't know something. On top of it all, he has a good sense of humor, which makes the drive from Fort Wayne worth it!  Respond

12/07/07 5 5 5 5 Wonderful Doctor! I am a chronic pain patient with severe neck pain for 15 years. He has helped me more than any other Dr. He takes time to evaluate & listens. He never rushed me out the door. If he dosen't know the answer he'll find another Dr. who can help.I really feel he truly cares about his patients. He is so very kind and a really smart guy! I know I have felt better than I have in years working with him on my case.

27/02/06 5 5 5 Dr. Snook is an extremely patient, kind, and caring Physician. He takes the time to educate his patients about their disease in terms they can understand (I referred a friend as well). He has never made me felt rushed and always answered all of my questions fully and encouraged me to ask more. I see him to control my epilepsy. But I am impressed by how everytime I go to an appointment he tells me about a conference he went to in order to learn about something new. I respect MDs who have a thirst for knowledge and keep up with the latest and greatest in their chosen field. After going through many other Neurologists, I feel lucky that I finally found one who is intelligent, doesn't have a huge ego that gets in the way of patient care, and has a terrific bedside manner. I would recommend him highly to anyone for any type of neurological disorder. He has a terrific RN that works with him as well.
