About Me

Sports is a major part of Dr. Yakels life. At a young age Dr. Yakel suffered from Severs disease, a condition that causes heel pain in children. As a result, Dr. Yakel started using orthotics at a very young age. These orthotics changed his life and allowed him to continue playing sports.
Dr. Yakels goal is to provide the same life-changing experience that he had at a young age.

Dr. Yakel did surgery on my foot and it went from mildly uncomfortable to painful. I have had 3 corrective surgeries since. I was an avid hiker wanting to avoid hammertoe issues. Since his surgery I have no movement in my forefoot, have poor balance, and have burning pain in my foot regularly. Needless to say I am no longer an avid hiker! Do not let Dr. Yakel do surgery on you.

After months of foot pain which went incorrectly diagnosed by a previous podiatrist, Dr. Yakel immediately determined the cause of the problem and treated it. He is friendly, knowledgeable and informative. I highly recommend him.
