"Before my surgery with Dr. Brucato I used to work an 8-hour shift at K-mart when I would come home I'd literally have to crawl around the house so I wouldn't feel the pain as bad. Plus, I had a surgery by someone else which did nothing for me.
After my second surgery, with Dr. Brucato, it literally changed my life - no pain, no complications. ... I'm so grateful, thank you very much."

"I visited New Jersey Foot and Ankle Centers with an achilles tendon injury. It was my 1st injury that required immobilization and difficulty walking. As expected, it was difficult! The staff at NJF&AC not only had all of the resources I needed but also worked well with me and my pace while focusing on my recovery. Over the next 4-5 months NJF&AC facilitated the best care, expertise and guidance for me to push myself to recovery and also healthy options to heal. With their dedication and care I am now back on both feet, I'm back in balance and soon ending my physical therapy and graduating back to everyday normal life. It's been a blessing and I am very grateful for the staff at NJF&AC."

"My daughter Elizabeth came to New Jersey Foot & Ankle Centers as she injured her big toe at soccer camp. Someone's cleat came down hard on her toe which caused heavy brusing. She was seen by Dr. Appel and he went through a full range review of her nail bed. She was very nervous that her nail may need to be taken off. He could see her fear and he immediately put her at ease with his humor! He opted not to remove her nail as her pain level was low and the nail was still pretty well in place. She took it easy for a week - no soccer - and came back the next week. He greeted her with a smile and a soccer line which immediately made her smile and relax.
Thank you Dr. Appel for your kind nature and using humor to help Elizabeth feel at ease! Aslo - good news ... the nail is healing beautifully!"

"As a nurse, I am on my feet all day so when I started having foot pain, I was pretty much useless, especially with a 1-year old at home. I came to New Jersey Foot & Ankle Centers and they helped me get back to work within a week. It's been over a month now, and I am back to where I used to be. Thanks to all the doctors and techs!"
