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 where he also completed his residency and fellowship. Dr. Snyder’s special interests include preventive and interventional cardiology and advanced heart failure.
Formerly, Dr. Snyder was president of the medical staff at Medical City and a member of the board of governors for the American College of Cardiology in Washington D.C., as well as president of the Texas chapter. Most recently, in 2012, as president of the Dallas County Medical Society he helped lead Dallas County’s response to the West Nile epidemic. This year, Dr. Snyder continues to serve the society as chairman of the board of directors. Currently, he is also a member of the board of directors for the Southwestern Medical Foundation, HeartPlace, Cardiovascular Provider Resources, and a member of the Dallas County Public Health Advisory Committee.
In addition, Dr. Snyder is particularly active in medical advocacy and serves on the board of directors for both ACCPAC and TexPAC, as well as on the Council of Legislation for the Texas Medical Association. “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. 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.
