Around November/December 2020 - Jan 2021, when Covid numbers in NJ were high, the staff along with Dr. Brucato did not wear their masks when speaking on the phones despite the small office and the plexiglass doesn't cover their area nearly enough. One staff member didn't wear her mask in a tight hallway where patients have to pass. I emailed the doctor my concern and her reply (in writing in an email) was, "I'm sorry you feel that way." She did NOT state that they would be more careful nor say she will make necessary changes during a global pandemic when people are dying, but her reply was "I'm sorry you feel that way." I finally emailed her again about a week or 2 ago to state my utter disappointment in how they handled their office during Coronavirus since I decided I wasn't going to order a copy of my orthotics, but I never heard back. A positive energy office, yes. But let's not make it a positive covid test. Even with numbers dropping, I wouldn't return. Bad for my feet too.

Saw Dr. Brucato after a visit to the ER who determined I had a broken fibula. Fought with ortho to get an appointment just for a follow up. I was recommended to Dr. Brucato’s practice by a family member, her practice gave me an appointment a week and a half sooner than the ortho. Super friendly and helpful staff, Dr. Brucato took X-rays and saw I needed surgery (mind you the ER missed that) my bone was broken in two places and I had the surgery that week. A month later progress and healing has been steady. Dr. Brucato has been amazing! She is friendly, knowledgeable and listens to my concerns! Would not change her!!!!

after suffering with a bunion for several years and visiting other foot and ankle specialists with no success, Dr Brucato suggested surgery to insert plates to correct my bunion. I am now healed with no bunion and no pain! Excellent Doctor and staff who were all caring and efficient even through the weeks of pandemic! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I had an ingrown nail, which sounds stupid, but I literally couldn't walk. Dr Brucato's office gave me an appointment for the very next day, I got a simple procedure, and in just 3 days I was able to walk around just fine. She and the people in her office are a pleasure to be around!

After about 6 months of nagging foot pain, I decided to visit Dr Brucato's office in Clifton, NJ. Walked into a clean reception area with friendly staff and waiting 3-4- minutes before being taken into the exam room. Dr Burcato came in just a few minutes after my paperwork was done. She was very thorough, huge smile and really relaxing to be examined by. After a couple of x-rays, I received cortisone shots & my foot was bandaged. A week later I'm back for my follow up still pain free!!!

R. Rebasch – Feb 19, 2020
My friend Jen recommended Dr Brucato & it was a perfect fit. She is easy going, knowledgeable and very talented in her field of foot and ankle. She exceptionally took care of an ulcer on my foot that I had obtained from a burn and taught me a few things about my feet. It's a family-like community among the staff who teach each other daily and I had the opportunity of watching them learn on me, considering I was there every week for 9 weeks, driving Tamara bonkers on what color cast I wanted! Being a teacher myself, it was an awesome experience. I will continue therapy with Dr B on a weekly basis for my neuropathy, and continue to watch this team learn and grow in this specialized field.

After 3 podiatrists I found Dr Brucato! After just 1 visit she identified my problem, provided treatment, and after days my ankle pain was gone! I suffered for almost 3 months prior to seeing her. If you need a caring, knowledgeable physician, look no further than Dr Brucato!!

I came here after an ER diagnosis of a fractured bone in my foot. I was able to get an appointment right away, for which I was grateful. Dr Brucato did a thorough exam and explained everything clearly to me, including treatment options. The entire staff is always friendly and helpful. It has truly been a pleasure receiving care here!

I came in with the worst ingrown toenail of my life! Dr Brucato assured me it would be easy to take care of. She did the whole process quickly and efficiently, but most importantly it was pain free. After following their instructions I was pain free in a couple days and back to regular day-to-day activities.

I came in feeling a lot of pain in my right foot. The arch of my foot was very swollen. After Dr. Brucato examined me she knew exactly what would heal and relieve the pain. I am pleased to say in just one week I feel 90% better! I would highly recommend her.

I found Dr. Maryellen by research and chance. It's a brand new practice and the staff tries hard amti accommodate and they are quite friendly. The family and I are so far quite happy with her. U suspect it was the administration of the old office, for the hospital staff has strongly recommended her. No complaints at all. Maybe trying to hard? Is there a thing? The waiting room is a touch to cozy with fellow patients. It's the only downside I can think of so far.Reminds me of Amtrak.IL!!

In May of 2019 I went to the emergency room at Hackensack Hospital after losing Two and a half toes in an accident. Dr Brucato did surgery to repair my foot and was with me all the way through recovery. I can now walk, run and do all the activities I did before the accident. Dr Brucato and her excellent staff were incredible during the entire time.
