I became Dr. Neuman's patient because I wanted to have a bunion surgery. I got bunions from my dad. "Bunions are most often caused by an inherited faulty mechanical structure of the foot. it is not the bunion itself that is inherited, but certain foot types that make a person prone to developing a bunion." I didn't want to wait until I got older and my bunions grew bigger and more painful before I could have a surgery. I wanted to get rid of them as soon as possible.
Every time I visited this office, the receptionist (Lilly) was ALWAYS nice and friendly. The staff members here are really willing to help you get through the process of scheduling your appointments, x-rays, blood tests, etc. I never felt uncomfortable when I was in Dr. Neuman's office.
Dr. Neuman is a very straightforward person. He might be intimidating at times because of his deep voice, but he is really kind, and cares about his patients. He actually remembered when I was supposed to come in to have a post-op check up. I was glad that I had a surgery done by him.
I got the surgery done on my left foot on Monday, January 21, 2008, at Hallmark Surgical Center of Northridge. Dr. Neuman and the rest of the staff members there were helpful, and they tried to make me feel relaxed. I was well cared for, and I will have another surgery on my right foot this summer.5
