Verified Patient Reviews
He was great. He explained things clearly. I learned things I should have already known from my other foot specialist.
Dr. Niemann was wonderful. He took time with me, it was the first time meeting him. He didn't rush me, he explained to me why my situation was the way it was & gave me 2 options. I an hour I got foot 101. In that hour, I trusted him enough to let him do what he felt was needed to get me well and on my way. He even wished me well with another situation I had going. His staff was nice as well & said call with any concerns if I had any. Thank you Dr. Niemann for being so nice. Doris W. 1/2/2018

Very nice and took his time to explain and listened
Dr Niemann's direct approach to the problem and providing me with optional treatment plans.
Great experience! Dr. Neimann explained what I had going on with my feet in a way that I understood. I now have instructions on how to stretch properly, a day sock to help with pain and a night boot to help with stretching! He took imprints of my feet for my new inserts and I was out of there quite quickly! The office staff is wonderful and efficient! Highly recommend this office! Don't let yourself be in pain and attempt Dr Google to help you. Go see Dr. Neimann!
When I got there the front office staff said my appt time was 3pm, but on ZocDoc i put in 3:30 pm.I got an email stating that the time I requested was confirmed with the front office. That's why I gave a 3 star on the wait time. They finally got me in the back office. Doctor was great and knew his stuff. Will refer friends and family if they need a foot and ankle doctor.
Even though I was actually in the office for about 2 hours, I was never left waiting alone in the room for longer than 5 minutes at most. Dr. N took care of 3 issues I was there to see him about. He did it efficiently and took the time to explain what was going on with my feet and the treatment he was prescribing. There were a lot of people in and out of the office that afternoon, but he was calm and cool and I never felt rushed.
Very nice and courteous staff. Dr Niemann was very informative. I already made an appointment for my husband.
I Love this office!! The staff is wonderful and Dr Niemann I Awesome!!! Thank all so much!!

This was my second visit to Dr. Niemann. My wait time was next to nothing, I was in and out in about 30 minutes. He really is terrific, great bedside manner, very knowledgeable.
Knowledgeable and professional; easy to converse with.
Dr. Niemann is absolutely incredible! I felt like he really cared about the pain I was in and in getting me the care/tools I needed to get better and live in less pain. My husband has also been seen by Dr. Niemann and he received the same fantastic level of care. We will never go anywhere else and would highly recommend him to anyone.
I was very pleased with the appointment. Doctor Niemann and his entire staff were very professional.
He was amazing. The surgery to take out my ingrown toenail took no time at all. I felt no pain. He was great.
He was great: willing to answer all questions and explain diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
The doc is very knowledgeable, I have been to 30+ docs and he got it right right away. I would recommend him to anybody
Although the doctor was very nice he did not address my concerns. This was my second follow up visit and although my issues were not better he indicated that I was on my own and not to come back unless I had a lot more pain. I will look for another doctor.
I arrived prior to my scheduled appt time. Check-in was very fast and efficient. I was back in exam room prior to my scheduled time. Dr. Niemann and his staff are very professional and personable. The exam room wait was very short before Dr. Niemann came in. He is very friendly, but professional. Discussed proposed care and completely a procedure within 15 minutes. I was on my way in less than 30 minutes very satisfied with my choice in podiatrists d

This was my first visit with Dr. Niemann and he exceeded my expectations by far. I went to him due to his location and reviews that I had read on ZocDoc. He was very thorough and spent the time needed to explain my situation and what my options are. I look forward to a long working relationship with Dr. Niemann.
He was very thorough. He answered and explained all of my questions without rushing or hesitation. He was very patient and help me understand all of my treatment options.
Wonderful doctor! Very personal. Would recommend him in a heart beat. Glad I went to see him.
Great doctor, I have seen five other orthopedic doctors over the past ten years and he was the only one who said he could correct my foot deformation as soon as he saw it, and did as he promised. Thanks Dr. Niemann!
The doctors bedside manner was outstanding. He came in and sat down eye level and gave me the options for my treatment. He took the time to answer my questions and I never felt like he was trying to rush out of the room to get to his next patient. I would absolutely recommend this doctor!

Dr Niemann has a pleasant bedside manner and he listens to the concerns I have and answers my questions to my satisfaction. I trust him completely.
EXCELLENT DOCTOR AND SURGEON!!
I've always had foot issues and was told all my life that I needed to wear orthotics due to pronation but I have never followed through. Because of that I have finally developed excruciating foot pain that flares up 2-3 times a year. Dr Niemann is the first doctor to correctly diagnose my recent problems and has explained things to me in such a way that made so much sense that I actually agreed to wear orthotics and do stretching exercises! My office visit was very pleasant with no waiting. I'm very thankful to have found this doctor and highly recommend his office.
Very nice guy; always willing to talk with you, exploring alternatives and discussing recovery.
Great guy ,great doctor
Concerned, gentle, seems very competent!
Wait time was minimal, office staff was friendly. Dr Niemann was prompt, friendly, informative and took care of my procedure professionally and quickly. I highly recommend Dr Niemann.
Dr Niemann was professional, thorough, and explained my condition to me unlike any other Doctor ever has before. He also took the time to show me my X-rays and explain the problem and where and why it existed. He presented the options for relief of pain and correction of the problem without any pressure one way or the other in my decision. His office staff was courteous and thoughtful and I would recommend Dr Niemann highly to anyone needing this kind of care.
It is wonderful when they get right to the point of what will help you as Dr Niemann did.
Clear explanations, quick attention and follow up. Awesome office staff and back-office/insurance staff.
My grandson was treated by Dr. Neimann and was very satisfied with his treatment. Thank you, Dr. Neimann for your help. Pat M.
Clearly explained treatment options including pros and cons and what he would recommend. Will be proceeding with his recommendation.
Didn't rush me through my visit. Took the time to explain everything to me so I completely understood what is happening to me. Took the X-rays right there in the office and showed them to me and explained them. Friendly manner by everyone in the office.
No wait, great interaction, he explained all of my options and potential issues.
Concerns were immediately addressed. Immediate diagnosis and follow-up set up
Very knowledgeable and professional, started treatment right away. Whole staff was awesome.
He took the time to listen our concerns. He explained everything in detail and provided a plan to treat the problem. Highly satisfied! Great with kids and parents.
I was very nervous to have my ingrown toenail removed and had been putting off for many years. The shots to the toe were not fun but not really that bad. The procedure went very well and I didn't ever feel any pain. Now, I ask myself why I waited so long. I highly recommend Dr. Niemann on a job well done. Thanks!
Dr. Niemann was very professional thorough and involved in my medical concerns. We did not feel rushed, received thoughtful/fully explained options and have an excellent understanding of how we will proceed.
I saw Dr. Niemann for what turned out to be a sesamoid fracture. I waited in the waiting room less than a minute and there was also no wait in the exam room. I had my diagnosis and treatment plan within 20 minutes of stepping into the office. His bedside manner was great and he is obviously very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing foot or ankle work!
Thank you, very nice visit..all staff was friendly.
Dr. Niemann was very thorough in explaining what he was doing, which I appreciated. He and his staff were very helpful and efficient.
I verified that I broke my toe after visiting an Urgent care, but I needed to visit a Podiatrists. Let me first start-off by mentioning how easy it was to schedule my appointment with Dr Niemann. I researched Dr Niemann using a few websites and then found ZocDoc. I was able to schedule my appointment on a Sunday at 11:30pm using ZocDoc. Dr. Niemann took his time reviewing my X-rays and made me feel relaxed and assured that my foot would heal perfectly, but would take a few weeks. No surgery! He has great patient reviews. After meeting him, he seems like a very nice and knowledgeable person.
Knowledgeable & spent enough time with me to really understand what is going on with me & what my options are.
Very nice and easy to talk to
Precise , knowledgable , informative. Gave options for procedures available for me.
I have been to a number of podiatrists in the past and Dr. Niemann has outshined all of them, ten fold. I am so relieved to have found a doctor and surgeon who knows exactly what he's talking about and has unrivaled expertise. I am fully confident in his knowledge and ability to practice and can't wait to move forward with him as my physician.
So Happy to have found this Awesome Doctor (Dr. Niemman)Highly recommend him to everyone:)We feel very confidant in his recommendations and his staff as well very very kind and so helpful. Thank you Dr. Niemann and Staff. You rock!;)
Dr Neimann is a great doctor. He took time to explain my problem and was not rushed. He made sure I understood what I was suppose to do. He gave me a brace and had his assistant come in and make sure I knew how to use it. She put it on and explained all the straps etc. I am really impressed with this Dr and would recommend him to all my friends and relatives.
Smooth, quick, great staff, doc super personal and did a great job. In & out in 30 minutes or less on 1st visit. Also lots of text reminders and communication plus online scheduling. Just my speed!
Very friendly, professional, and helpful! I had a glass shard in my heel which he removed with very little pain and I'm up and walking 1 day later!
As I came into his office after having achilles tendon surgery I was looking for answers as to why I was still in pain and could not walk normal yet. He spent about an hour with me and we set a new game plan that should be workable and a success but if it does not, there is another surgery in the future, that he would have done prior to the one I had. Even my wife was very happy.
I like Dr. Niemann very much and am so glad we found him. He's pleasant and knowledgeable and his treatment resulted in faster than expected resolution of the problem. I also love the fact that we've never had to wait more than 10 minutes in the waiting room and only a couple minutes in the exam room before he comes in. Something pretty rare these days. We will continue to see Dr. Niemann for any similar problems.
My appointment with Dr. Niemann could not have gone any smoother. My questions were answered completely without the doctor being condescending.
The doctor and his staff were very pleasant and efficient. I was checked in, treated, and back out the door in a timely manner and I was very happy with the visit overall.
It was very professional and everything was explained.
I chose this office because it's very close to where we live. Dr. Niemann was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional and I liked him very much. Same for his staff. Had to wait about 35-40 minutes in the waiting room, however, and then about another 10 in the exam room, and that was for a 9AM apptmt. I thought he wouldn't be so far behind early in the AM, but the waiting room was full, so apparently he's very well-liked. He does X-rays right in the offices, which saves a lot of time and trouble and lets him find your problem immediately. I'd rate Dr. Niemann 5 out of 5 stars, after you get over the long wait.
Very professional and explained everything as he went. Very down to earth and approachable. Would definitely recommend.
had a great visit would definitely recommend
Great experience, new in area and didn't have a dr.. Filled out forms before hand, while having breakfast, terrific. Dr. was great, keeping his info, we come back to AZ every winter. Good work everybody. P.S. we are from New York, you can spend 3 hrs in a drs office.
Great as a doctor. Very efficient, he knows what he is doing. But personality wise, his bedside manner sucks, he was rude, didn't give explainations for the procedure and was extremly rushed.
I have not had anything more than my initial visit yet, but he saw me right away, got x-rays, and got me in a boot and seemed to have a good sense of my condition.
Dr. Nieman had a diagnosis immediately after the x-rays. He told me what was wrong and what to do about it. I appreciated his manner and his solution.
I appreciated Dr Niemann taking the time to address all of my questions and concerns. He was very caring and explained the treatment options for my condition in an easy to understand manner. The staff was very pleasant and courteous. I will highly recommend Dr. Niemann to others.
Good and comfortable
Loved Dr. Niemann, he was very friendly, polite, and professional. He made us feel at ease the minute he walked in and introduced himself to us. He did not over diagnos, and had a solution right away. He explained about our insurance plan, and how that would work for us. Overall, very pleased with the office.
Very pleasant, very helpful and very informative. Would recommend him to anyone. Thanks
EXCELLENT DOCTOR!!!!! And staff as well.
It was very conveniently located close to my home. My best part was availability in timely manner. Office staff was friendly and prompt.
Waited 45 after my appointment time to get called in when i had already got there 15 minutes prior for paperwork. Thankful there was as kid's corner to keep kids entertained some.
It was great. the staff is friendly and caring. The doctor was straight forward and honest about my options. I am so glad I decided to go to Dr. Niemann.
Everything about seeing Dr. Niemann was wonderful from 1st visit to my ankle surgery, and follow-ups. Part of being an exceptional provider is making sure your patients, feels they can trust you. I never had a doubt. Thank you Dr. Neimann.
Very professional and was concerned about my needs/concerns. Took time out to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explained my medical issues.

Staff very professional and office welcoming from the front desk to the back office assistants. Doctor took his time listening and explaining my condition - he spent over 30 minutes with me.

Dr. Niemann answered all of my questions and understood my concerns. He gave me options for my ailment and made sure I understood the options available.
He was very thorough and explained everything so I could understand it. I was very impressed!!
Should have done it years ago.
I've been in pain with plantar fasciitis for two months and felt like I was in very good hands today. Dr. Niemann explored every possibility to ease my pain and help me heal. He proactively had his staff call my insurance to see if they would cover any custom orthotics. They cover 100% so I'm picking them up in two weeks. Great staff and excellent doctor.
I had gone to Dr. Niemann to remove hardware in my ankle that had been causing me grief due to past injury. He keeps you very well informed and I never had any difficulty with understanding the treatment he had for me and the physical therapy afterward. His staff is also highly recommended!
The Dr. Fully explained his findings, was friendly and through. Very satisfied with all aspects of the appointment.
Dr. Niemann and his staff are fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was referred to San Tan Foot and Ankle by a friend and am very thankful for that recommendation. Thanks for the great service!
Very good work and professional
Outstanding doctor who took the time to explain everything. Thank you so much. Marie-Anne.
Everything that I hoped it would be!
Doctor was good and took time to explain everything thoroughly such as his diagnosis and line of treatment . Office staff was polite and prompt . Wait time for seeing the doctor was barely 5 to 10 minutes - my whole appointment was done in around 45 minutes ! ( which is a refreshing change from doctors offices where I have had to wait for that long just to be taken to the exam room !!)
Very down to earth and explained what was needed.
I researched his info, qualifications, training and was very pleased with his knowledge and ability to translate it in an easy, friendly manner so that I understood every aspect of my care.
He was very personable - answered my questions and discussed options for my diabetic feet
It was great. Very friendly and explained things in a way that my 11 year old could understand. Very thorough.
He was wonderful. Really listened. Explained everything and took enough time.
