September 20, 2015

Matt was caring and thorough. He made certain that I had the results from my x-rays as soon as possible, which was a great relief.

September 14, 2015

Matt stayed with me and when he had to leave to go see another patient he was back in the room checking on me. Great team work!!!

September 09, 2015

Very knowledgeable PA. Outstanding staff. Very impressed with how everyone there worked together.

August 18, 2015

Matt is amazing! He is very thoughtful and exams every possible issue. I am so glad I found a doctor I feel like I can trust

August 12, 2015

Matthew is the best primary care I ever had he make me feel like I'm his friend

August 10, 2015

I thought Dr. Nimer was wonderful. He spent way more time with me than I expected and he discussed things with me like one friend to another, but simultaneously with professionalism and expertise.

July 17, 2015

Because my previous PCP left the University, this was the first time seeing Nimer. He was very thorough. I never felt rushed as I had always been with my previous provider. Because Nimer spent time listening to my concerns and doing an overall check up, he may have discovered an issue with my heart that was previously over looked. I appreciate his genuine interest and care for my health.

July 14, 2015

My physician's assistant was very warm and caring. He looked very young, I feel more comfortable around someone older because of my age. Matt Nimer could NOT have been nicer however or seem more caring. He was very companionate and caring

July 13, 2015

Was quite nervous about this appointment since it was the first time seeing Matthew Nimer. I had established care with Dr. Poor at this clinic who has left since left the practice. Matthew put me at ease quite quickly and established an atmosphere of trust. He also followed up on some concerns of mine and made referrals to a specialty clinic based on those concerns. I really felt like he allowed me to be involved in my care rather than just direct it himself.

June 25, 2015

I thought the doctor was excellent and had a great bed side manner. I was made to feel like a real person not just a patient

June 23, 2015

Matthew is very informative and takes the time to answer all my questions. He was great at showing concern during times of discomfort during my procedure and talking me through what was happening.

June 16, 2015

Matthew was amazing. He answered all of my questions and concerns in clear terms. He went over all treatment options but let me decide on the outcome on my own. He advised that he is not experienced in the procedure I am having and gave me the option of choosing a different provider or allowing him to do it with the aid of a supervisor.

May 05, 2015

Dr. Nemer is very professional

April 21, 2015

The experience was easy. I understood my problems before coming, and the event was really just a check/opinion on my conditions.

April 17, 2015

Matt was very informative and thorough.

April 03, 2015

U of U staff provides incredible care and service.

March 27, 2015

Matt Nimer is the best PA I have ever seen. He was efficient and conscientious with his care. I will recommend him to all of Utah.

March 21, 2015

I hate going to the Dr. and avoid it until I can't handle my symptoms any longer, it was a breath of fresh air to find a Dr. that listened and even could joke around a little bit to help break the ice...I feel like he listened and really wanted to figure things out for me.

March 19, 2015

He used his best guess about what was wrong with my arm and gave me some things to try. I was unclear on when I should follow up if it doesn't improve.

March 12, 2015

Matt was fantastic! I loved how he took his time talking to me about something a lot of physicians might just rush through.

March 10, 2015

Excellent, He wanted me scheduled a 40mins appt to figure out what was going on, and he was their to listen to my needs to help me out as his patient

March 09, 2015

I have never felt so dismissed and condescended to as a patient. He made it very clear that my issue was insignificant to him and that as a result there wasn't anything he was going to do to really help.

March 09, 2015

dr. nimer is hands down the most personable and caring dr. i've seen in a long long time. he actually listened to me and considered all of my medical history in trying to determine what is going on with my leg. it has been an issue for quite a few years, and hopefully it will finally be resolved. i'm very appreciative he took the time to go over everything with me.

March 09, 2015

Matt took the time to go speak with a provider in the OBGYN department to make sure that he was making the right decision regarding my daughter's condition since it involved more of their specialty. I love that he took the time to do this to make sure my daughter was given proper care. He is awesome

February 25, 2015

I chose Matt Nimer because I had heard how thoroughly he took care of his patients. I was not disappointed and will be recommending him to all family and friends!

February 10, 2015


January 15, 2015

Went in for an infected thumb. He drained the puss, but didn't bandage it, recommended that I go home and do that. I thought it odd to leave the office with an open wound. Also went for a cough I've had since October. He offered some reasons for the lingering cough, but never listened to my lungs. Odd.

December 15, 2014

I had great experience

December 09, 2014

I really like Dr. Nimer very much.

December 07, 2014

He was amazing. He is a funny guy, but still took my concerns seriously.

October 28, 2014

Very thorough. Takes time to evaluate symptoms and offer treatment options.

October 21, 2014

I was very pleased with his thoughtfulness and complete care. The visit was enjoyable.

October 16, 2014

He was able to help with immediate concerns while waiting for blood tests to establish current health record.

October 10, 2014

Matt is the best!!

September 30, 2014

Did an excellent job.

September 14, 2014

He was very thorough and did a great job of explaining the symptoms and treatment to me

August 17, 2014

The doctor understood my pain and knew I had planes later that day so found another way to take care of my toe.

August 07, 2014

Dr. Nimmer took the time to listen to my concerns and address each one individual. Will be recommending friends and family to visit him.

August 04, 2014

My appt didn't feel rushed like they often to. Matt was so nice and helpful.

June 25, 2014

Dr. Nimer is fantastic. grateful he's my doc

June 13, 2014

I was not happy that the PA did not know that he could file two claims on the same day so that I would not have to come back another day.

May 17, 2014

I have very high expectations when it comes to health care, especially health care offered by a high-caliber institution like The University of Utah. Matt Nimmer's care did not disappoint. He had a great bedside manner, effectively diagnosed my condition and helped find a solution with input from me. I can't imagine what more you could want in a health care provider from the excellent care that Matt delivered.

May 11, 2014

Dr. Nimer always does a great job! and his staff is always very kind as well! I love this office, as much time as I have been needing to spend at the doctors lately I am glad it's with Dr. Nimer and his staff. they are very helpful, show concern and have a lot of knowledge about every problem I am faced with. I am thankful to have a doctor that works hard but still focuses on his patients. I always feel comfortable and well taken care of.

May 09, 2014

He had researched my problem for me before my appointment, I felt like he really cared about helping me. He made me feel very comfortable and really wanted to answer all of my questions.

April 20, 2014

I don't think I will ever schedule another appointment with your PA, Matt. He didn't seem to have concern for my illness. I understand that it very well may have been a "virus" that needs to run it's course, but he didn't seem to have much understanding for what type of virus it was, and what the normal progression of symptoms might be for my illness. I felt horrible during the office visit, and I really don't think the PA or the MA knows how to relate to patient's that are actually sick when they are visiting the clinic.

April 20, 2014

I travelled 30 mins to get to the clinic when my previous pediatrician is 6 min away. It was my first time there and was extremely impressed with Matthew Nimer. He was excellent! I'll definitely be returning to have him care for my 4 kids and mom and dad also

April 20, 2014

Excellent care

April 14, 2014

Excellent care provider, addressed all my concerns and took his time. Didn't make me feel like he was trying to get to his next patient. I really trust his opinion and care.

April 08, 2014

Very good experience. He seemed very present during the appointment and listened.

April 04, 2014

good doctor

April 01, 2014

Matt Nimer took time and effort to figure out our best next steps in identifying the source of my pain/complaint. He included me in his thought process and asked appropriate questions to come to a solution.

April 01, 2014

Matt Nimer was very proactive in finding answers to my pain.

March 30, 2014

Almost chided me for following directions a prior provider had given 2 days before, as hr disagreed. Despite my common ailment, it was the first time I had been diagnosed with it. Gave very little info on it.

February 27, 2014

I always enjoy my visits with Matthew Nimer, PA. He is concerned and caring. Very professional.

February 13, 2014

It was nice to get an explanation of my problem in its full detail and to get referred to a specialty area with background knowledge of my issue.

January 27, 2014

Great experience, really appreciated the PA taking his time with me.

January 08, 2014

Horrible care. This PA needs to go back to school if he plans to continue to care for pediatric patient. Gave bad instruction and dosage on Medication. Gave bad instruction on treatment of fevers. I will never see him again

December 27, 2013

I don't think he knows yet what is wrong.

December 22, 2013

entire staff was very patient and extra helpful.

December 17, 2013

I was very happy with the treatment I received from Matt Nimer. He took his time and made sure that we were on the same page as far as treatment, cost, etc. He was very honest. I have already told several friends about the positive experience I had at my visit.

December 03, 2013

I appreciated the PA's information about the prescription medication that I was about to use since it was a new prescription..

November 11, 2013

My experience with this PA was the best experience I've had at the South Jordan Clinic. For the first time, I feel like I received quality care instead of quick snapped out questions and answers from a dr. trying to rush from one patient to the next. I've never had a regular primary care physician for this reason, but now I plan to always return to this PA for future care. I liked how personable Matthew was and that he seemed to care about the problems I was having and tried to make suggestions for some things I could try. At no point did I feel that he was trying to wrap things up quickly to get to the next person - I felt like I was his number one concern. I think that's what a good Dr/PA should do.

November 11, 2013

I enjoyed my experience with Dr. Nimer so much, I will recommend him if I have a friend who is looking for a doctor. He was very attentive and concerned about my needs.

October 28, 2013

Dr. Nimer is a fantastic care provider. He went above and beyond to help me with my concerns. I am very glad I saw him and I definitely plan on using him as our family care provider.
