From the Doctor (Sponsored)
Board certified in both Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology, Dr. Snyder has practiced with HeartPlace at Medical City Dallas since 1996. He received his medical degree from UT Southwestern Medical School where he also completed his residency and fellowship. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors for the UT Southwestern Medical Foundation. Dr. Snyder’s special interests include preventive and interventional cardiology and advanced heart failure.
Formerly at Medical City, Dr. Snyder was Chairman of the Department of Medicine, President of the Medical Staff and served on the Board of Trustees. He is also a leader in his professional societies. On the national level, at the American College of Cardiology in Washington D.C., he served on the Board of Governors and the Quality Strategic Directions Committee. More locally, he was President of the Texas chapter of the ACC in Austin for three years. Most recently, In 2012, as President of the Dallas County Medical Society, he helped lead Dallas County’s response to the West Nile epidemic. Quoting Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins: "Few leaders affect public health in their lives as much as Dr. Snyder did the year he served as President of the Dallas County Medical Society...Based largely on the advocacy of a physician leader I'd never met before the afternoon of my decision, I declared a State of Emergency and ordered aerial spraying in Dallas County for the first time sine 1966." This year, Dr. Snyder continues to serve DCMS as a member of the North Texas Mass Casualty Critical Task Force, and as a member of the Dallas County Public Health Advisory Committee. Currently, he is also Vice President for both HeartPlace and Cardiovascular Provider Resources.
In addition, Dr. Snyder is particularly active in medical advocacy and serves on the Board of Directors for the political action committee for both the American College of Cardiology and Texas Medical Association, ACCPAC and TexPAC, as well as on the Council of Legislation for the TMA. “The classic vision of a doctor as an advocate for our patients has to be much more than just words. We physicians will have almost as much impact on the care our patients receive in legislative chambers and regulators’ offices as exam rooms and operating rooms,” he says. “As clinicians, we treat one patient at a time, but as physician advocates, we can help everyone.”
This marks the eighth time that Dr. Snyder has been honored by D Magazine as one of the Best Doctors in Dallas (appearing on the cover in 2009). He also has been recognized as a Super Doctor® in Texas Monthly for nine consecutive years.
Raised in Dallas, he attended Jesuit College Prep. Dr. Snyder subsequently graduated from Notre Dame majoring in French and continues to be an ardent fan of the Fighting Irish. He and his wife, Dr. Shelley Hall, have five children.
