Ive been seeing Dr Snyder and Gina for a long time now and i love them both! Dr Snyder is the best! He answers all questions, gives great advice and takes his time. I pray he never retires because i dont want another Dr 😊 Thank you Dr Snyder!” – Maple Goodies

Wow…I came on here to say how great they are at this office and was surprised they have negative reviews! But then again, I’ve only dealt with Dulce though and she’s a rock star!! But not inh a boisterous sort of was and more in a polite sweet way and yet very effective at her job: From the get go, she was able to promptly get me a same day appt while figuring out if insurance was going to be okay. She takes care of the patient while taking care of business! So…for me, this was a find because based on my schedule, Dr Folz had availability and he turned out to be great too!! So I highly recommend. Update:. At the point of my initial review, I had only seen Dr Folz one time and so I sort of briefly mentioned him, but I’ve seen him more since and I’m liking him a lot! He really takes his time with you, addresses every concern and really seems to care! I literally pick “these people” from a list on google and what a lucky day it was!!!!” – Danny Ortiz

For coming to an emergency room we had a good time. Thank you for your overall exceptional customer service!” – Deanna Anchors

All the nurses and assistants on the 7th floor were WONDERFUL. Special thanks to my nurse Renata. She was amazing as I suffered through my day after surgery. Best nurse I have ever encountered! Also, all the ladies in recovery were attentive and pleasant. They made my 4 hour wait for a room tolerable. ( Apparently it was a busy week) .
