At the bottom of this page is a scheduling calendar for requesting a non-patient consultation. The times and fees are listed below.
Who Might Consider a Non-Patient Phone Consultation?
Those interested in learning more about specific root causes (listed below) that may be contributing to their or their child's specific brain related symptoms.
Those who have not fully benefited from or tolerated previous allopathic/conventional psychiatric treatment or functional medicine treatment. They may feel they are not progressing or something is being missed.
Those interested in resources specific to their situation, such as labs that they may order on their own (or discuss with their doctor) and professional resources available in their area. Because these non-patient phone consultations do not involve a comprehensive treatment evaluation, I am unable to order labs, prescribe medication or give detailed treatment recommendations.If you wish, I can speak with you and your physician (if you include them in your consultation) to assist your physician in facilitating any testing or treatment that may be helpful. Follow-up consultations with you and/or your physician can be scheduled as necessary.
Those interested in possible treatment who live in Kentucky, Indiana, Florida or Ohio, or who are able to periodically travel to one of those states for their tele-health (video) appointments. The non-patient phone consultation is required prior to a treatmentevaluation. The non-patient phone consultation allows us both to consider if this type of treatment will be a good fit. Based on the consultation, if treatment is deemed appropriate, some choose to start completing useful lab tests (that they order on their own or discuss with their doctor) so that results are available at the time of the patient treatment evaluation. Though I am a licensed physician and not opposed to psychiatric medications, that is not the focus of my practice or continuing education. As a result, I do not prescribe or manage psychiatric medications.
Once the consultation is purchased and scheduled I will invite you to share any other information you would like me to review prior to your consultation, such as:
Your goals for the call.
Informal 1-2 page timeline using your (or your child's age) to mark notable events, exposures, onset of symptoms, medical or psychiatric diagnoses, etc.
List of current medications and supplements.
Relevant lab reports, if any.
During your consultation, I will obtain further information from you to better understand what factors may be contributing to your symptoms, what may have been missed previously in terms of underlying factors, diagnoses or treatments, provide direction on how you can move forward, and help you understand the bigger picture of your illness.
Children If the phone consultation is regarding a child under the age of 18, they do not need to be present on the call unless that is your preference. If a treatment evaluation is scheduled after the consultation, your child would need to be present for part of the appointment, which would be by video.
Many of the Root Causes of Brain Related Symptoms That I Consider - Nutrient Imbalances, Including Methylation Imbalances (that impact neurotransmitter functioning) - Toxicity/Oxidative Stress (mold toxicity and other biotoxins, metals, chemical, EMF/electromagnetic fields) - Imbalances in the Microbiome (the collection of microbes in our gastrointestinal tract) - Infections or Colonizations - Inflammation, including Mast Cell Activation, Autoimmunity, Allergy, Food Sensitivities - Limbic System Trauma or Dysfunction due to:
- Attachment/Relationship Style - Autonomic Dysfunction (which relates to our fight, flight or freeze response) - Abnormalities in Stress Hormone Pathways and Other Hormone Related Root Causes - Structural Issues of the Head and Neck - Genetic Variants (snps/polymorphisms) - Lifestyle Factors * diet, exercise * stress reduction * social support * meaning/purpose and spiritual incongruence

If you are interested in a phone consultation with Dr. Snyder, please know that medico-legally she cannot diagnose or treat anyone unless there is a face-to-face meeting via video conferencing, or an in person office visit (not currently available) that includes a complete history and examination. She cannot prescribe any medications or supplements unless you are an established patient. The phone consultations offered here are intended for educational and informational purposes only. Many of the illnesses and symptoms with which her patients struggle are highly controversial. Information provided in these consultations represent only her most current clinical experience and knowledge.What she can do is review your current medical experiences, symptoms, laboratory results and treatments and suggest areas that may not have been adequately explored or investigated completely. Know that a specific diagnosis or treatment cannot be provided. Nor can she assure you that the information she shares will be of direct help to your personal situation (for which she will have limited knowledge). Always seek the advice of your physician before making any treatment decisions.
After you pick a time, you will be invited to share a brief summary (one paragraph) of your concerns, so that I can determine if I can be helpful.If I feel I can be helpful, I will confirm your appointment and invite other information that you may want me to review prior to your consultation. ***When looking at the calendar, it can be easy to miss the available 11am EST time slots if you do not look carefully.
