dr_sydney_yau_ufai_simi_valleyAll of us at University Foot and Ankle Institute (UFAI) are excited to announce the opening of our new location in Simi Valley. Conveniently located directly off the 118 freeway, our new Simi Valley podiatry location offers the same advanced foot and ankle care that people have come to expect from UFAI over the past twelve years. State-of-the-art services at our Simi Valley location are provided by Dr. Sydney Yau.

“We are proud to add our newest Simi Valley location to our family of offices at University Foot and Ankle Institute,” says Dr. Bob Baravarian, Director of University Foot and Ankle Institute,  “Dr. Yau has been with our group for many years and is truly an outstanding doctor, surgeon and person.  We are proud to have him build his reputation and serve the community in Simi Valley.”

Trained at Temple University in Philadelphia, followed by a comprehensive 3-year surgical residency at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, Dr. Yau specializes in sports medicine, diabetic limb salvage, foot and ankle reconstruction and trauma.

Dr. Yau is looking forward to the expansion into Simi Valley, “after practicing with the group for several years, I am excited to add to the community.  I will strive to provide the best care to the patients that enter our office and to treat them as part of our University Foot and Ankle family.  I look forward to helping you stay on your feet and keep you doing the things you love!”

Patients applaud Dr. Yau’s commitment to the highest level of patient care. Here are just a few of his recent patient reviews:

“I personally love Dr. Sydney Yau. He is very kind and compassionate and always makes time to really listen. His whole staff is super sweet and funny. I absolutely love this place. It was such a relief to finally get some answers about my foot and ankle. Their schedules are super flexible and very accommodating.”  – Lisa L.  Yelp

“Dr. Yau takes time with his patient(s) and explains the foot condition professionally. I highly recommend Dr. Yau as a podiatrist.”  – Art H.  ZocDoc

“It’s been five months since my surgery, performed by Dr. Sydney Yau, and I’ve been walking with no pain…. he was always, and is still, concerned with how I am doing. A couple hours after my surgery, Dr. Yau called to make sure I was doing okay and called the following day as well. The staff has always been kind and caring to me, well organized…. I highly recommend Dr. Yau to anyone with foot or ankle problems. You will be well cared for and will “walk away” without any problems!”  – Sandie E.  Yelp
