These consultations are not intended for those who are in crisis. For this, call 911 and/or go to the nearest emergency room.
If you would like to schedule a consultation for yourself or child, please first review the information on this page. At the bottom of this page is a calendar for requesting a consultation. In the process of scheduling, you will see a short form that invites you to share a brief summary of your concerns. This allows me to determine if I can be helpful, before confirming your consultation. The times and fees are listed below.
Those Who Use This Service
Those interested in learning more about specific root causes that may be contributing to their or their child's specific brain related symptoms.
Those who may have not fully benefited from or tolerated previous allopathic/conventional psychiatric treatment or functional medicine treatment. They may feel they are not progressing, or feel that something is being missed.
Those interested in possible treatment. A consultation prior to a patient evaluation allows us both to consider if this type of treatment is a good fit. Based on the consultation, if treatment is deemed appropriate, many choose to start completing useful lab tests, so that results are available at the time of the evaluation. This allows a more comprehensive treatment plan to be provided at the evaluation. I am licensed in Florida, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. I am able to provide patient evaluations and treatment to:
those who live in or are able to travel to one of these states
those who reside in a state that allows interstate tele-health
Once the consultation is purchased and scheduled,I will review other relevant information. The below items can be helpful to share at least a couple days in advance of a consultation.

During your consultation, I will obtain further information from you to better understand what factors may be contributing to your symptoms, what previously may have been missed 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. A phone consultation does not guarantee that I will be able to see you as a patient.

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 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, I will confirm your appointment and invite other information that you may want me to review prior to your consultation.
