About Us


At Diabetic Foot and Wound Center and a team of nationally-recognized specialists provide high-quality and long-lasting wound care to the communities of Kern County. The practice is located in Bakersfield, California, and serves adults with various podiatric and other medical needs.

The team of physicians at Diabetic Foot and Wound Center uses the latest technology to treat non-healing wounds in a convenient office-based setting. When non-healing wounds aren't treated, your symptoms can worsen, and your risk of amputations increases. However, 8/10 amputations are preventable.

Diabetic Foot and Wound Center offers:

  • Walk-in clinic, seven days per week
  • Same-day appointments
  • Easy access with close, convenient parking
  • Care coordination with your primary care provider
  • Lower out of pocket Cost
  • Cutting edge technology to diagnose and treat
  • Office-based treatment (no hospital stay)
  • Return to work quickly

The experts will walk you through the diagnosis and procedure, answer all of your questions, and help you decide what’s best for you. The Diabetic Foot and Wound Center's mission is to help build an amputation-free Kern County, where residents walk stronger and live longer.

The team believes in an integrated approach to medicine, combining several specialty providers, advanced diagnostic studies, state-of-the-art treatment technology, and vascular interventions to accelerate the healing process. 

The comfortable outpatient facility enables patients to receive care away from the hospital and under one roof, instead of across multiple different medical facilities. With the specialists working together within the same facility, patients benefit from instant communication.

The Diabetic Foot and Wound Center team has vast experience diagnosing and treating patients with an array of podiatric conditions, including athlete’s foot, bunions, calluses, Charcot foot, ingrown toenails, heel pain, foot pain, hammertoe, plantar fasciitis, and toenail fungus.

The medical professionals understand that time is tissue and work tirelessly to prevent amputations using a variety of proven treatments. They treat both foot and lower leg wounds, as well as ulcers. They have experience in managing peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and peripheral neuropathy, which are common causes of slow-healing wounds. 

The targeted treatments include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, MIST® Therapy, total contact cast (TCC) offloading, ultrasonic debridement, advanced biologics, amputation prevention, diabetic foot care, vascular testing, and vascular ultrasounds.

Diabetic Foot and Wound Center understands that wounds don’t wait. The practice is open seven days a week and no appointment is needed - patients can walk-in for immediate care. Dr. Nieto is also fluent in English and Spanish, enabling him to care for a diverse community of patients.
