Biographical Statement:

I specialize in neuro-oncology and care for people faced with brain tumors, cancer involving the nervous system, and other conditions that bridge neurology and cancer. My number one priority is to be the best possible advocate for my patients and their loved ones so that every person is provided the highest level of care possible that aligns with their individual needs. I am dedicated to offering access to clinical trials and novel treatment strategies. At the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center we offer multidisciplinary care every step of the way so that our patients receive the best possible care at the right time in the context of a comprehensive and supportive specialty neuro-oncology clinic.


I completed my undergraduate and medical education at Michigan State University. I then completed an internship at Detroit Medical Center Huron Valley Hospital, followed by neurology residency training through Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital. I completed my neuro-oncology fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit in 2016. I am a member of the American Brain Tumor Association, Clinical Trials.gov, Collaborative Ependymoma Research Network, National Brain Tumor Foundation & the National Cancer Institute.

Really liked him


Dr. Snyder is a very caring and compassionate Doctor. I have great confidence in his skills as a Dr.


I had an MRI at Henry Ford earlier that morning and this visit was a follow up with Dr. Snyder to go over the results. It was a quick wait in the waiting room before I was brought back to the exam room. The Nurse that brought me to the room informed me that there was another patient in front of me and Dr. Snyder was a little behind. A different nurse and another Doctor stopped in to let me know about the delay and offered to get me food if I was hungry (my appt. Was over lunch time.) It actually didnt seem like a long wait to me before Dr. Snyder was in the room. Even though Dr. Snyder was running behind, I never felt like he was in a rush. It spent time with me and made sure to ask me if I had any questions. I live 2.5 hours away, but the drive is worth it to see Dr. Snyder.


Awesome and amazing great


Always excellent!!
