“Thursday, August 16th was my first visit with Dr. Yurkanin. She was extremely nice and is doing everything to help me with my ankle. I also had to have an X-ray done in the office and her staff was extremely nice and was super nice to my 6 year old”
Dr Yurkanin is so compassionate, very easy to talk to and explains everything so you understand before leaving your appointment I highly recommend her!
Dr. Yurkanin is an excellent podiatrist and surgeon. She is very compassionate, and takes the time to explain everything you need to know about your treatment options. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
I highly recommend Dr. Yurkanin to anyone looking for a quality podiatrist! I’ve liked her from day one and now that she’s in her own office I like her 100x more. She’s a great doctor and surgeon, along with being pleasant and patient.  I truly appreciate her skills and personality.
