Patient Comments (3)
Minneapolis, MN |
I was referred to neurology for chronic back pain, unexplained falling, numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. I was given a 60-second "neurological exam", followed by a referral to PT. Dr. Niemi did not show any concern or curiosity about my symptoms at all I was not asked one probing or follow-up question, such as when the symptoms started, if anything made symptoms worse or better, etc. Dr. Niemi was abrasive and dismissive. I will see a new provider with my MRI results. Beware.

This woman is abrasive and has no interpersonal skills. She acts as if we are wasting her time. She is totally inept and cannot communicate. She added zero value to the care. She was rude and dismissive.
Lakeville, MN |
She ordered an EEG which came back abnormal, then ordered an MRI and after the MRI had a nurse call me and say good news everything looks good no need for anymore appointments ?? I was in severe pain with numb legs or I wouldn't have gone to the Dr. I requested the MRI disk and took it elsewhere and they immediately saw fluid built up around my spine at L4-L5 and ordered a procedure immediately. I had immediate relief after that but I wasted 3 months with Dr. Niemi with no results.
