Meet Dr. Branwell


We all know that when your feet hurt, EVERYTHING hurts! That is why this office wants you to feel comfortable with who is taking care of you and your feet. We treat patients of all ages (from 1 year to 100+) and are concerned about their total health and well-being.

A third generation Kearny native and resident, Dr. John P. Branwell is celebrating 20 years of private practice in this great town! He was educated in Kearny Public Schools and then received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Memphis State University in 1985. After attending one year of a Masters program at Fairleigh-Dickinson University, he went on to receive his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from Dr.William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in 1990. He was a member of the student chapter of the American College of Foot Surgeons and participated in numerous foot screenings in Chicago's homeless shelters.

Dr. Branwell completed two residencies (VA Medical Center East Orange, NJ and Roseland Surgical Center Roseland, NJ) before entering into private practice in 1998. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Specialties in Podiatry and an active member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and New Jersey Podiatric Medical Society.

Dr. Branwell also completed an intense, one week course in Milwaukee 2007 to become a board-certified pedorthist, who specializes in fitting and dispensing diabetic footwear and custom orthotics. He is honored to be among only a select number of podiatrists across the country who have this certification.

In addition to lecturing to community organizations and meetings, Dr. Branwell is an active member and former President of the Kearny Optimist Club. For the past 8 years, he has served as Chairman of the club's annual Oratorical Contest for the youth of this town. And finally... Dr. John P. Branwell holds certification as an AFAA Group Fitness Instructor and Zumba Instructor to encourage his students to keep active and promote foot health!
