Background

Dr. Yokay grew up in Sacramento, California and completed her undergraduate training at Auburn University in Alabama, where she received a full athletic scholarship for gymnastics and competed for four years. She received multiple awards for athletics and academics during her time at Auburn. Dr. Yokay graduated with a degree in chemistry and developed an interest in foot and ankle medicine from the many injuries she sustained throughout her gymnastics career. 

After this, Dr. Yokay completed her medical education at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where she graduated cum laude and was the recipient of multiple academic awards including being inducted into the National Chapter of Pi Delta. Following this, she was accepted into the prestigious Long Island Jewish/North Shore University Hospital Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Program, where she completed her residency training.

I’ve done gymnastics since I was two, and over the years I’ve had countless foot and ankle injuries. Dealing with these lower extremity injuries and my interest in biomechanics and anatomy inspired me to pursue podiatry.
