Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nemitz "We believe in early treatment with nonsurgical, conservative therapies. Acute pain tends to indicate a fracture and requires immediate medical care. Chronic pain requires an investigation into the cause, and should be addressed as early as possible to avoid complications. Pain and swelling should resolve within a week of a sprain or strain.

Our foot and ankle specialists utilize combination therapies including medical, physical and rehabilitation strategies, as well as wellness-based approaches for physical activity and self-management. We treat the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves and skin of the foot and ankle. Reconstructive ankle surgery or replacement, fractures, sports injuries and trauma are all conditions treated."

in San Christobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico |
I tore my achilles tendon playing tennis recently. Dr Nemitz saw me right away and did the surgery the next day. I am now 5-6 weeks post-op now and out of the boot walking normally. I will requiere Physical therapy and exercise for several months to return to full athletic function but I am extremely pleased. Dr. Nemitz is a very gifted surgeon, knowledgeable, and very personable. I am a retired physician and carefull about picking doctors, but I give Dr. Nemitz and his staff 5 stars.
in Cape Coral, FL |
I had a 3:30 slot, but new patients should arrive at 3:00 to fill out paperwork. I arrived approximately 9 minutes late where I was promptly greeted with a you are late we can not see you. At first I though she was kidding, then I explained how I drove 45 minutes to get there etc... and she said she would ask the doctor. She came back 5 minutes later and said the doctor refuses to see you when should I re-schedule. Apparently 1 hour of my time is not worth 9 minutes of theirs. Don't Recommend!

Dr. Nemitz and the staff were great. After treating my Achilles Tendon issues I am now back to jogging again.
