Our New Website Launches Soon!

Pardon our dust as we update our website to reflect the evolution of Prompt Foot & Ankle Care and Foot & Ankle Care Associates into Foot & Ankle Premier Specialists. While our practice is under new management, we are excited to deliver the same exceptional level of care you’ve come to expect over the past 25 years.

Immediate relief is available

We have early morning, late evening and Saturday appointments.

Our website may be under construction, but our offices are open! With offices in Hoboken, Bloomfield, Bayonne and Manhattan, we have a location near you ready to assist with your foot and ankle care.

Dr. Juliana Paternina leads Foot & Ankle Premier Specialists (formerly the practice of Drs. Vito Petruzzella and Dennis O’Brien) with a commitment to providing quality and convenient care through sports medicine, geriatric foot care, trauma pediatrics, and foot and ankle surgery.

We offer a range of on-site services to meet your specific foot and ankle care needs, including x-ray, ultrasound and vascular testing.

We offer 10% off on all out of pocket services.
