Ratings for Dr. M. Margaret Snow
Dr.Snow is competent. She wants her patients to be active in their recovery. Statistics show that exercise and therapy are at least as good as or better than medication at relieving back pain. She recommends exercise and therapy as part of pain management. She speaks loudly, like someone who deals with hard of hearing people a lot. Some people see that as rude. She does not consider an office visit a social occassion. I think she sees her role as assessing, and advising. I haved disagreed with her on different matters. She has told me directly,"I appreciate what you are saying."She is by law required to monitor the use of her prescriptions. A couple years ago a doctor was arrested because a bottle of pills prescribed by him had been in the possession of someone not his patient. There is mandatory testing for drug use, and she complies with the law. I am tested once a year and I don't consider it an insult. And the dog doesn't get in the way.
We love Dr Snow! She is caring and considerate. My mother is an octogenarian with back and neck problems. On top of which she is profoundly deaf and difficult to communicate with. Dr. Snow is one of the few physicians who took the time to build a relationship with her and discover just how capable she was. Dr. Snow would type in her questions and mom would read them, and then verbalize her answers. She and the Dr. Became quite close and would banter back and forth. Just as importantly Dr. Snow was able to help mom to manage her pain successfully. Doc is always available to mom or us when there is a question about her healthcare. I feel like Dr. snow has always gone above and beyond to help us, she is fair, and open, and frank, and knowledgable. We recommend her highly!
Margaret Snow is extremely condescending towards me, every time I see her, and her nurse can be at times too. I am seeing her for pain management, but the medicine she gives me just barely takes the edge off at best, when it helps at all. I've told her this. She is as unfriendly as I have ever seen anyone. She implies that I am lying to her about something when I am not, and have never given her a reason to make her think than I am. She has insulted me, and offended me, telling me that I should change my personality. Both Snow and her nurse look down their nose at me. As my witness, my husband always goes to my appointments with me, which I insist upon, because I do not trust Snow or her nurse. I will be looking into finding another doctor to replace her soon, but have to wait until after I get surgery, because I fear she will take offense and somehow sabotage my ability to get the surgery that I need. I have never been so unhappy with the way a doctor treated me in my life.
After waiting for 5 m months for an appointment the first time I went to see her I spent many hours waiting and when I was finally seen I was berated, Spoken down to, and told "things would be held against me" that I was basically, a mental case, who was abusing meds. I wish I had boosted this site and read these reviews before I ever accepting the Appointment. I would have never gone there and I recommend that you don't either. This thing that upset me the most is that she called my mental health professional list over 50 years experience basically useless bag of air.
Horrible, Horrible, Horrible.. The worst doctor I have ever been to hands down, If I could've gave her zero stars I would have. Not only is she extremely rude, and has a nasty attitude, she has a holier than thou persona. And she literally just met me. What kind of doctor brings their little tripping hazard of a dog to the office to just run around until it trips a patient with a broken lower extremity as it almost did me with my broken foot. Not to mention the woman thinks she is some kind of psychiatrist and knows nothing of the field. I thank god I do not have to visit her office anymore, and I DO NOT recommend anybody with any kind of self respect visiting her office. The only good thing about being there was her nurse, and receptionist whom were actually tolerable for the 4 hours I had to sit there on average for each appointment.
Not only the rudest Dr. I've ever dealt with, but one of the rudest people period. Absolutely worthless. Charged my insurance co. ridiculous fees to do nothing but yell at me because I couldn't go to physical therapy at the time. I only saw her twice, that was enough. The dog was too much. Is this person really a doctor? Thankfully, I returned to my primary care physician, who is Dr. Snow's opposite, and all's well again.
