Gabe in the office is so welcoming and professional. Dr. Snyder and her assistant were amazing in handling my dad’s oral surgery needs especially since he has stage 4 dementia. Dr. Snyder was so professional and accommodating. She actually moved around some appts to get my dad’s oral surgery done the same day as his evaluation day.
