Founder and Medical Director
A soft voice, with just a slight southern accent, a philosophy that he treats every patient in the same manner as he did his parents while performing their cataract surgery is what keeps Dr. Snead in constant demand to care for new
and established patients alike. Letters and thank-you notes arrive on a daily basis as testimonial to the kind of dedicated and caring demeanor that is exhibited by Dr. Snead and his staff. A sign displayed in the lobby area reads “Welcome
to Snead Cataract, Enter as a Patient, Leave as a Friend”, a statement reflecting the type of quality care and relationship that forms between this practice and their patients.
