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.

I have been seeing Dr Tennity for many years. He listens and explains the options. Great "bedside manner".
June 06, 2022
I really enjoyed the interaction between the doctor and told me that everything was great and I thought it was and he was great. So thank you very much. It's a big thank you for the doctor.
June 02, 2022
The doctor and the nursing staff were all very friendly and professional. I would recommend this clinic to anyone.
June 01, 2022
I had a very pleasant visit and what had to be done, Dr. Tennity did it very well and I was very happy with everything that went on. At the first questions, I'm not sure if I rated him and they were all supposed to be a 4 and I might have hit a 3 by mistake. So everything is a four, everything is excellent. I would very it was very pleased with everything that went on in his office. Thank you very much.

My experience with Capital Foot & Ankle has always been great! My experience with Bryan billing has been less than great putting it mildly.
May 18, 2022
Excellent care. Nurse assisting was excellent.
May 18, 2022
The blond woman at check in was nice and helpful. The woman at checkout was confused about what insurance covers and doesn't cover, and it's confusing to me that even with six weeks to wait before the orthotic appointment that the office can't submit the matter to insurance. The insurance company would answer long before the appointment. I have never had a medical office tell me I have to call my insurance to see what they cover. There needs to be a better way to explain this to patients. I am unlikely to return.
May 11, 2022
The only concern I have is the pre-billing statement I got. I'm self-pay because I have Christian health ministry. And I think my bill went from $200 to 190 in the pre-billing. Other facilities give me 20 to 30% off. I think you guys need to be more aware of peoples needs related to finances. Otherwise I just love Dr. Tennity
May 05, 2022

March 24, 2022
I was pleased with my visit. I'm with my talk with the doctor and and I was just taking care of the prep. So, I'm good.
March 17, 2022
When I met with Terry for new orthodics, I asked him for his opinion about having a hammer toe removed. He said his 87 year old mother had it done a while back, and she recovered with no difficulties. He recommended Dr. Tennity as an excellent doctor to do it. Terry even checked to see if he would have a few minutes to check my feet right then. Dr. Tennity took time to see me within the next 10 minutes and I was very pleased with his knowledge and willingness to help. I'm looking forward to having Dr. Tennity do it in the near future.
March 09, 2022
She found a cut on my husband's foot caused by a curled under toe with a long nail. Neither of us knew it was there. He's a brittle diabetic and this could have turned into a serious situation.

I found out that I probably have a blocked artery and the word vascular was used often and frequently and I have an appointment with a recommendation or reference that the doctor gave me for vascular located at Brian Plaza, East in April so thank you very much and I appreciate all the kindness that I received.

The doctor and his staff are always professional and they care for the health of my feet.
February 28, 2022
Dr Tennity really listened to the problems I've been having. After a thorough exam, he gave a list of treatment options, explaining the timeframe to likely see results, as well as the maintenance needed to keep the problem from coming back. Very professional, yet such a friendly bedside manner you feel like you're chatting with a family member.
February 23, 2022

My first appointment with this clinic and I have to say, a great experience with Dr. Tennity and his assistant. Very comfortable.
January 31, 2022
Well, I looked at my chart after my visit and the doctor said, I had bunions and hammer toes. I look those up on the Internet, my feet don't look like, I have either one, and I've never thought I had either one. So I don't know what his basis was for. I went in two have to toenails removed.
January 26, 2022
Everyone that works there are very nice and helpful.
January 18, 2022
Enjoyed the ease of the conversation. Patiently answered questions to issues that really had very few treatment options. Yet, I left the office knowing that I had support and encouragement, not a dead end. Thank you!
January 17, 2022
The staff gives excellent care.
January 13, 2022

January 03, 2022
Yeah, the one thing I didn't find out about is Tylenol is not working for my pain at all. And it's just she... she got had to go to work from work every day early. That's only thing I could recall, that I was... didn't talk to talk about that. I sure would like to get some in a call tomorrow. Thank you.

December 28, 2021
I would like to thank Dr. Tennity for really listening. We came to him for a second opinion because the first doctor we wereseeing wasn't really listening to our concerns and seem to be brushing off our concerns, and he really listened and took our concer seriously and was going to help us get to the bottom of what is going on with my daughter's feet and ankle, and I can't thank you enough for truly listening and being just as concerned as we were so thank you very much.
December 27, 2021

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.

October 12, 2021
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.
September 27, 2021
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.
September 16, 2021

August 12, 2021
Excellent care.
August 11, 2021
Great experience! Went for a second opinion and wished I went to Dr. Tennity first. He was thorough in his explanation which was very much appreciated.

It was great!
August 05, 2021
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.

I would like to have had a printed outcome of the visitl
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.
