Welcome to the website of 

Dr. Michael Zapf, DPM, MPH, FACFAS

Thank you for visiting my website. I have been placing information and articles on this site for many years and have received millions of  hits during that time (and not that many of them were mine). I have designed it for people who like to read about their foot and ankle problems. Since I started the web site, I have added two associates to my practice, Dr. Darren Payne and Dr. Stephen Benson.  Since my site is filled with just my thoughts and opinions they are not, necessarily, shared by my colleagues. To see our less controversial (and less windy) practice web site, I offer you:www.ConejoFeet.com, the practice site for The Agoura Los Robles Podiatry Centers (ALRPC). The ALRPC practice site has a lot of material about our office, many of our policies and the registration forms to be filled out before your visit. I suggest all prospective patients visit: www.ConejoFeet.com.


Dr. Zapf is currently seeing patients Monday - Friday in both the Thousand Oaks and Agoura Hills office locations. Please do not come into the office if you have been experiencing shortness of breath, have a fever, gastrointestinal issues, or heart palpitations.  If you do need to come to the office, please follow proper social distancing and wear a mask. If you can not come to the office, many insurances including Medicare are now paying for telehealth visits. This may be accomplished with video chat like Zoom. If video chat is not available, then a regular phone call might be an option. If you would like to schedule a telehealth visit, please call the office to set up a telehealth appointment.
