About Dr. Snyder

I’m Dr. Diane Snyder, Board Certified Ob/Gyn with a Focused Practice in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology.

During medical school, I was debating between pediatrics and Ob/Gyn and for a variety of reasons chose Ob/Gyn. During my residency training, I was introduced to the sub-specialty of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (PAG) by one of my attending physicians and knew it was an area I wanted to pursue. During my last year of residency, I did an elective rotation at Boston Children’s Hospital which really introduced me to the field. I ended up not doing a fellowship and started to slowly incorporate younger patients into my practice.

Once I stopped practicing Obstetrics in 2002, I was able to focus more on this age group. I started giving lectures to pediatric groups as well as in middle and high schools.

Joining the North American Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) has been most helpful with monthly journals, international listserve, and annual National conferences. This is a group of many specialties that focuses on delivering medical care to pediatric and adolescent females.

PAG covers many medical and gynecologic conditions and some diagnoses that can be devastating to a young patient (Premature ovarian insufficiency or Mullerian anomalies) and I find it extremely gratifying to be a part of the care journey for these patients.

Helping young women manage their contraceptive choices, feel positive about their sexuality, and improve their menstrual disorders are but a few of the things I love about pediatric and adolescent gynecology.

What our patients are saying

  • Dr. Snyder and her staff were excellent with my young teen. Very respectful, kind, and understanding. They made us both feel at ease. Dr. Snyder spent a long time with us answering any and every question. Extremely thorough and followed up with us the next day with a personal phone call. Couldn’t be happier with their professionalism and care.

    I love Dr. Diane Snyder. I have been with her for many years and I will never replace her with any other doctor. She is professional, knowledgeable, sensitive, and caring. She is always quick to respond even during the weekend. Dr. Stein care very much about the heath of her patients and willing to help in any advice that she can give. If you are looking for a gynecologist, I highly recommend Dr. Snyder.
    Thank Dr. Snyder for your dedication to women's health.

  • Dr Snyder is an excellent doctor. She is well-informed about the latest recommendations on practice and the latest research, is very kind and compassionate, and seems to care about the whole person. I've never had to wait more than 10-15 minutes, and the check in process is very easy. She takes time to answer questions and listens to any issues I'm having. Honestly, she's one of the best doctors I've ever had. I can't recommend her highly enough.
