My visit with Dr. Petranek and his staff went very well. My appointment time was at 2:30 and I was seen by 2:40. The entire visit went by very quickly. The office staff was efficient and polite and thorough! The nursing staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a very positive experience. I ended up having a minor surgery which was unexpected but Dr. Petranek made sure I was completely numb prior to starting. Both he and the nursing staff made sure I knew and understood my aftercare instructions prior to leaving. I definitely recommend Mclean Foot And Ankle Center and Dr. Petranek. He is one I will add to my healthcare team.

He was very helpful. He outlined my options and gave me his opinion. He also performed all the tests and sizing for orthodics himself. Gave me some physical therapy exercises to use. He also was familiar with my insurance coverage.

Dr. Petranek was so nice and really helpful. I appreciated that he was really dedicated to finding out what was causing my foot pain and solving the problem, when other doctors have been very rushed and not as thorough. Highly recommend him!

Dr Petranek is wonderful. I’d recommend him to anyone. And he has a very nice sense of humor. Definitely makes the visit comfortable and not as stressful, or painful (in the case you have to get a shot in your foot like I did).

I went in with an injured toe. He and his staff were friendly, helpful and treated me with gentleness and respect. He also found another issue and taught me about it but didn't press me to deal with it then. Highly recommend Dr. Pasternaks practice.
