John W. Snyder Jr, MD

Dr. Snyder earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1979. After an internship at Riverside Hospital, he completed his family medicine residency at First Colonial Family Practice Center in Virginia Beach in 1982. Dr. Snyder is board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

While growing up on the Eastern Shore, Dr. Snyder’s admiration for his own family physician inspired him to pursue the same profession. He has since maintained a long-term commitment to caring for the people of his hometown community, with more than 37 years in practice in Nassawadox. Dr. Snyder’s areas of focus include geriatric care, wellness and preventive medicine.

Born at the very site where he practices today, Dr. Snyder still loves waking up each morning on the Eastern Shore, where he loves the country, the water and the seaside. His favorite hobbies include hiking, gardening, boating and shooting. Dr. Snyder and Ann, his wife of 40 years, are the parents of two sons and one daughter.
