Dr. Michael Zapf started the Agoura-Los Robles Podiatry Centers in 1985. He added Darren Payne, DPM and Steve Benson, DPM to the practice so now there are three doctors in the offices splitting time in the two locations. We also have two physical therapists in the Thousand Oaks office. Dr. Zapf was a Public Health Microbiologist before going to podiatric medical school. Dr. Zapf is involved in several local organizations in the community. He is a past president of the Westlake Sunrise Rotary Club and was instrumental in establishing Operation Footprint where United States podiatrists travel to Honduras for an annual club foot surgery session. Dr. Zapf has participated in seven week long surgery trips to Honduras. He is a board member and past-president of the Conejo Free Clinic which has been providing free medical and legal service to local residents for almost 30 years. He has also been on the board of the Triunfo YMCA and the Conejo Future Foundation.
