Dr Ziemer and her staff are very caring and knowledgeable. Dr Ziemer takes the time to listen to your foot and ankle issues and then clearly explains what is going on and what the best course of treatment is. I didn’t feel rushed. I’m so happy that I found this practice and highly recommend them to everyone.

I have been living with pain and restrictions resulting from an ankle tendon injury for more than a decade. I decided I would reach out to a podiatrist one more time, in hopes of getting some relief. Dr.Ziemer stepped beyond traditional treatment protocols such as bracing and injections for pain, and introduced me too newer FDA approved technology.treatments such as applied regenerative medicine. I am impressed with Dr Zeimer’s knowledge and application of traditional, as well as newer treatment options. She is supported by a staff who is both efficient and personable. They include medical assistants Lexia and Prissy, office manager Alicia and front desk manager, Monica. Together they are a well organized and efficient team. Whether you need help with scheduling, prescriptions, insurance or other concerns, they are are your advocate. I am so glad I put my foot in Dr Zeimer’s door! My ankle is almost completely pain free and I have a normal range of motion!
