Medical Privileges


"What an amazing experience!"


Office Visit

"I could not be happier and I am very judgmental when it comes to people's ability to actually Be warm not just act like it. Warmth was all around at this office and throughout my experience. To me this speaks to an authentic environment. I would not want to undergo an invasive treatment under any other conditions. Dr Snyder along with his staff and the staff at Inspire Surgery Center is top notch and I am writing to make my recommendation to all who appreciate quality in quantity."



"I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in the spring of last year. For a variety of reasons I decided to have a double mastectomy and have Dr. Snyder do my DIEP flap reconstruction. It was a long surgery and challenging recovery at times, but Dr. Snyder, Jen his PA and all of the wonderful nurses in his office were always there whenever I needed to call and ask questions or go in to be checked during my healing. At one point I even ended up back in the hospital with an infection, and once again the doctors in the practice and the office staff were wonderful. Thank you Dr. Ned, Jen, Caroline and Michele for all of your hand holding. It helped a lot."



"I had breast augmentation surgery in 2010 with Dr. Ned Snyder IV, after having two kids my breasts were just not the same.  I have always tried the natural approach to everything, so of course the thought of elective surgery was stressful.  Dr. Snyder's front office girls and PA Jen put my nerves at ease upon arrival, and I had a great consultation with Dr. Snyder.  He showed me before and after photos and thoughtfully answered all of my questions.  I am exactly the size I wanted to be, and do not look "fake" or "plastic".  Exactly what I wanted!  I had the surgery on a Thursday and returned to work on Monday.  I highly recommend Dr. Snyder for any cosmetic or medical plastic surgery.  I have been in to see his wife, amazing Dermatologist Dr. Renee Snyder, several times since my surgery and the new location (just a few blocks away from the last office location) is SO NICE and has its own parking lot.  I can't say enough good things about this doctor, the office, and everyone who works there.  5 stars all around."



"In July 2011 I had minor surgery on my nose to remove some skin cancer. Although not life threatening, I was left with a good size hole in the side of my nose.   Dr. Snyder, his Nurse and Physician's Assistant made me feel comfortable and well-cared for.  During the procedure the staff and Dr. made sure I was as pain-free as possible. Dr. Snyder's skill and technique left my face looking great!I also want to note that I never had to wait longer than 10-15min for my appointments."
