Ratings for Dr. David S. Snodgrass
Dr. Snograss loves his laptop and himself. He spends 15 minutes reviewing your medical information while you are sitting there, asks no questions, then spews off more information from his computer screen than you can process when you aren't feeling well. He then will tell you what he thinks, writes a prescription if required, picks up his laptop and leaves without acknowledging your existence. He also removed a cyst from my back, only he didn't properly stitch the wound and I had to go back one week later and have another doctor fix his error. He is book smart but that's about it.
My husband went in for pain & swelling in the leg. This doctor DID NOT EXAMINE the leg. Dr sent him for an ultrasound which showed nothing and told him to take ibuprofen & rest it would be better after the weekend. I came home & rattlesnake bite punctures on the back of his left leg. My husband called Dr after hours & got no response. Called the next day & Dr did not offer any help other than to agree a rattlesnake bite could cause swelling & pain. 5 days my husband could not breathe & called again. The on call Dr did not appear to want to talk to a patient at 3am and told him he over-exerted himself & to relax. Husband called the Dr office after they opened & nobody called him back. He called PVH & MCR ER and was told to get in within 2 hours. He went in to the hospital and they found blood clots in both lungs. Thankfully, there were knowledgeable medical personnel at Medical Center of the Rockies or my husband could be dead.
I think this man actually tries to avoid patients. I have spent 3 months going in to the clinic for appointments several times for a painful disease unkown at first. I finally could not take the pain and the Doctor at urgent care diagnosed me in 30 mins..beware
This doctor seems to either lacks basic assessment skills or does not chose to use them. Although he appears able to treat single system ailments such as ear infection or strep, when diagnosis isn't straight forward or multiple symptoms or multi-systems may be involved, he frequently orders expensive tests and then does not provide adequate follow up for his patients, if any at all. His demeaner to his patients can be less than respectful, but as a CICP provider, most of his patients cannot opt to search for a doctor who will view their health care needs as important and treat them with dignity. Our indigent populations deserve better.
