Dr. Nieves' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nieves "I love God, my family, friends and have passion to help people with their feet health problems. When I'm not taking care of my family and patients I often volunteer around my community, helping the homeless and supporting pro-youth organizations. I love hiking and traveling. I model Jesus ministry, I practice forgiveness to whom for some reason hurt those around them. I pray for people who still haven't met Jesus in their hearts. I met Him more than thirty years ago and is the best thing that ever happened to me! He keeps me happy and no negative comment ever made have kept me away from living under the grace and favor of my God. Glory be to him! God Bless to You All."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nieves ""My philosophy of practice is to treat each patient the same way I would like to be treated myself. I take the time to listen and get to know each patient as a whole. After nearly twenty years of practicing Podiatric Medicine I firmly believe that a successful treatment outcome relies on a collaborative effort among all colleagues providing medical care to the patient, the patient's support system at home and the patient him/herself. That's why I love to discuss with patients about not only their medical concerns but also anything they would like to share with me, this allows for a rewarding open and honest patient-doctor relationship"."
