My Approach to Care

I enjoy working with patients of all ages to treat their foot and ankle. An important aspect of this is explaining all the options for care and treatment, and helping the patient choose a treatment plan that fits their needs.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Foot and ankle surgery, including reconstruction
  • Treating conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, heel spurs, tendon repairs and skin conditions
  • Treating damage caused by chronic conditions such as diabetes, trauma, arthritis and congenital malformations

Dr. Tennity has been serving Lincoln for nearly 28 years.

My answers maybe misleading because my appt. was for a toenail trim. Nadine usually does it but because booked until late November, Dr. Tennity did it.

My entire experience at your clinic was very good. Liz, the nurse that took my xrays, was so kind and thorough. Dr. Tennity was caring and thorough as well. I was pleased with the entire visit. Thank you.
October 04, 2021
The only part I wasn't happy with is I was there at 7:05 AM for a 7:15 AM appointment and wasn't called in until 7:30. Nurse said she had to help a different patient first because their nurse wasn't there yet. Didn't like being late due to employee not showing up. I had an early appointment so I would get in right away and be able to get to work quicker. Dr. Tennity was great tho.

The only feedback I have is that I sat in the room, after he left, he told me that I needed to talk to someone about orthopedic shoes and then he just left. And I sat there and sat there and sat there. And so finally, I went out and ask if someone if I was through and if I could leave and they said, I will have to check. I checked with him and yes, he was done, but it was unclear. And so I was left hanging in the room waiting to see if what the next step was. Then I went up to make an appointment and, of course, you're very busy with the orthopedic part of it, and I can't get in for quite some time. But that part I was okay with cuz I was going to be out of town. Thank you.
September 21, 2021
Everything was on schedule. They explained what they saw with my feet and offered good suggestions moving forward. It was a good experience!
September 20, 2021
The whole office is extremely nice and easy to get along with. Dr. Tennity is the best and he explains everything and is very helpful, helps me make decisions of what I need to do or shouldn't do. I love the office as a whole and I will always go there and refer other people there. Thank you.

Very good experience. Best bet guess, my foot is going to be great. Makes me smile! Thank you
August 04, 2021
Really well. The only thing that I could be critical of was that being threatened with her being rescheduled for being 15 minutes late. I didn't appreciate that 'cause I drove in from out of town, quite a distance and you never know if you're going to hit construction.
August 04, 2021
Dr. Tennity was very thorough, knowledgable and kind. He took time to explain my condition and treatment options. His staff from the front desk to his assistant were very kind and efficient.

July 21, 2021
It's always fun to visit Dr. Tennity. He is not quick to do surgery unless warranted and always gives options and is very good with explanations. I always recommended him if someone has a foot issue.
July 19, 2021
From first contact with the check in personnel the visit to CP&A is excellent. They make you feel welcome and safe. The wait is minimal and the Dr's assistants prep you in an orderly and timely fashion. The wait for the Dr is again minimal. Upon entry Dr Tennity immediately creates a warm and friendly environment. He is totally focused on your health issue while bringing a friendly and meaningful conversation to the treatment room.

The front office staff and nursing staff were also polite, courteous and helpful. Everything about the visit went well.

I am completely appreciated that they worked two appointments into one day. So, I was able to see Dr. Tennity and Terry and Terry fixed my orthotics and I was just extremely happy leaving out of town, that they were able to get both appointments done on spur of the moment on one day. So, I completely appreciated not having to do two appointments are both Dr. Tennity and Terry and Dr. Tennity's nurse were amazing that day, and all very timely. Thank you.
June 17, 2021
Liz was very kind & helpful
June 17, 2021

May 03, 2021
I'm exactly clear who I'm doing all this for I'm assuming it was the podiatrist that I went to see last week. I can't remember his name and my eyesight is bad. So I was having trouble with the I hope I got them right if it was for the podiatrist I want to see last week everything was satisfactory.
