I think she is a very good doctor, I think she does care. I like her attitude about not wanting to stick me on a bunch of medicine. She also tries to keep prescription costs low, instead of the very expensive ones some doctors suggest. She has always tried to help me through even emails when I contact her.

Worst doctor ever! She never takes the time to listen to you and her staff is so rude. Every time I had an appointment she would let so many doctors in training into the room I never felt comfortable. Please save yourself the headache and time go else where.

Do NOT even attempt a consultation with this person. Sour attitude with a horrible "bedside" manner from the beginning. Did not want to hear about past problems with my mother's former PCP, and really did not appreciate me blaming the past doctor for part of my mother's medical problem, which is absolutely the case - she appeared more interested in protecting her "kin" than my mother's medical issues. She did not to want be responsible/accountable for her services - AVOID this PCP

Dr Neimi requires you to have appointment just to get test results that are normal (she won't release them). So, while waiting for appointment you can't help but think the results must be bad. Get to appointment and results are fine. Seemed like another doctor just finding a way to charge the copay. Office staff leaves much to be desired. I would not recommend her to anyone.

I have been seeing Dr. Niemi for several years. She is the best. She truly cares about her patients. She takes her time and never rushes off for her next appointment. I referred her to my 27 year old daughter. She also now sees Dr. Niemi for all her medical concerns.

If I could give Dr. Niemi 0 starts I would. Please find another local Doctor to go to. I had been going to this office for 10 years until Dr. Niemi began working there. She does not diagnose you correctly, she makes you visit the office several times and charges a co-pay each time. She does not explain your medical illness and is not informative or knowledgeable about most type of illnesses. You are better off checking WebMD or finding another Doctor. Best of luck!

I highly recommend Dr. Niemi for anyone. She helped me discover two very serious chronic illnesses when we both did not know what was wrong with me. Some doctors would think hypochondriac or just simply ignore the symptoms since it was mainly fatigue at the time. I knew something was very wrong with me and she discussed different tests we could try until we discovered autoimmune and she sent me to a rheumatologist. I appreciate her for finding this so fast, because time was of the essence!
