Maricopa, AZ |
I have no idea why everyone gives this dr. 5 stars. He continually mispronounced my name. Told me I could exercise immediately after toenail removal. No take home instructions for aftercare. Acted like the procedure was no big deal. No antibiotics or pain meds provided. Just told me to return to normal life!! 1 day later, my toe was bleeding and was so painful, I could not remove the bandage. I call. He DOES return the call. Says to use Peroxide. Like that didn't hurt! Spent whole day crying.

Nothing but excellent things to say about Dr. Niemann and his staff. I came to see Dr. Niemann all the way from my home town of Austin, TX, even after seeing other podiatrists in my locality. Dr. Niemann came highly recommended from professionals within my network. He is very easy to speak with, explains complex concepts in an easy-to-understand manner, and exhibits a lot of empathy and understanding. Moreover, he will make all effort to accommodate your needs and schedule. Awesome experience.

Just had my second surgery with Dr. Neiman and I wouldn't trust anyone else. This time for a bunionectomy and a planter fasciitis issue. He always takes the time you need to answer your questions and is very thorough in his examinations and follow up! He also has a great office staff, very courteous and helpful!
in Buckeye, AZ |
I was very pleased with my visit to see DR Nieman. He took time with me to explain my options, he showed me the radiographs, and explained why I was experiencing pain. He didn't make me feel rushed & he listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend Santan Foot and ankle.

I really really enjoyed my experience at Dr. Spencer's practice. He and his team made me feel real comfortable as they were very professional. On top of that Dr. Spencer took good care of me and I was in and out in no time, while feeling good about my visit and positive vibes about my recovery! And for that I am very thankful....

Dr. Niemann was prompt and courteous. He answered all of my questions and explained my treatment options. It was nice to not have to make a follow up appointment to have my issue addressed. He took care of it then and there.

Very Professional and welcoming. Great with children. Pending upcoming surgery by Dr. Niemann and I am confident that I will have great reviews again.
in Maricopa, AZ |
I have strange pain and a lump on the top of my right foot. My doctor referred me to Dr. Niemann, and after looking at my MRI results and taking functional x-rays of my feet, he determined that I have arthritis in one specific joint, and gave me a number of options for treatment. I chose orthotics to begin with, and he took the mold of my feet. I like that he had options for me and is willing to work with my comfort level, as I see surgery as drastic in my case.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Was able to get an appointment immediately (same day) through the online scheduling system which was easy and convenient. Wait time in the office was next to none. Dr. Niemann was personable, knowledgeable and solved my issue in 1 visit. I will definitely go back to him if I have any other issues with my feet.

Dr. Niemann helped me to feel comfortable in coming to him with my food needs after my chemo & radiation treatments. I did not have a good experience in going to a previous doctor, but Dr. Niemann explained exactly what he could do to help me & resolved my concerns and foot problems right away! I not only feel more confident with resolving my issue but also in working with a doctor who is dedicated to helping his patients with compassion and excellent skills! Thank you, Dr. Niemann!

I have had serious problems for the past year with my right foot. After enduring one procedure after another I finally set out to get a second opinion. Dr. Niemann determined I was in need of a surgical procedure to fix my painful foot. I'm now on the road to recovery and am so thankful to Dr. Neimann and his staff. I would highly recommend anyone in need of a Great Podiatrist to seek help from him.

I would definitely recommend Doctor Niemann for all your foot and ankle needs! Doctor Niemann is a straight shooter that puts complicated medical tterminology into layman's terms so anyone can understand him. He has a great bedside manner and explains your choices and the pro's and con's of every procedure. Thank you doctor and kudos for all you do and for having such nice and helpful staff as well.

Just over one year I had surgery performed on my left foot. Dr Niemann's surgery corrected a problem I had suffered with for over 50 years!! The surgery has significantly improved my confidence going on long hikes on uneven terrain. Last month (Jan) I went hiking at Canyon-lands National Park. Two visits for a total of 18 miles. In the past I would be limping getting out of bed on the second day! Dr Niemann and his staff are very professional and courteous .
in Maricopa, AZ |
Excellent. Appropriately confident & aggressive with treatment. Sometimes I needed him to slow down and explain things more clearky, which he did.
