When does a wound need specialized treatment?
- If you have circulation problems
- If you have diabetes
- If you have a wound older than 2 weeks?
Getting the same treatment for the same wound with no improvement

I have to come to know Dr. Brucato and her staff through a friend. Dr. Brucato was recommended very highly. I had an open wound that was being treated by another doctor for months without success. Dr. Brucato used a different approach that healed my wound in the first six weeks. I am so happy to say she is amazing!
I could not have asked for a better podiatrist to take care of my treatment, recovery and care. Brucato’s office and staff is one of the best, concise, precise, knowledgeable and friendly doctor’s office I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with. From Doctor Brucato herself, to Dr. Parikh, Carissa, Tamara, Diana, Elbris, John and Daisy, this group welcomes you with a cheerful disposition to make you feel comfortable and hopeful regardless of what you may be going through. Thank you all for helping me with my treatment.
