My wife and I have been seeing Dr Niemi for years, and couldn't be happier. He is always familiar with the latest research and new procedures, and considers the comfort level of his patients before scheduling tests. He is a very caring physician, and a great listener. I would highly recommend him and especially to patients who might be a little nervous about seeing an eye doctor. He will put you right at ease.
