Zeno Pfau was born in San Diego, California and shortly after relocated to Tucson, Arizona where he spent most of his life. After finishing high school, he attended the University of Arizona where he met his wife and together have the great and rewarding opportunity of raising their 6 children. After finishing his undergraduate studies, Dr. Pfau had the opportunity to teach science at the high school level and was the boys varsity soccer coach. During this time, he was introduced to Podiatry by a family friend. Dr. Pfau was drawn into the profession and the opportunities it provided to interact and help those in pain and discomfort.

After obtaining his doctorate in podiatric medicine and surgery, Dr. Pfau completed a surgical residency at Northern Colorado Medical Center. During his residency in Greeley and work in private practice in Colorado, he developed an appreciation for Colorado and its people. He is grateful for the many opportunities he had to serve others throughout this time.

Dr. Pfau is excited to be back in Arizona where he continues to have the privilege to help others find pain relief. He is especially honored to join the same practice that introduced him to Podiatry. When Dr. Pfau is not doing what podiatrists do, he spends his time with his wife and kids serving in his church and community, coaching soccer, fishing, boating, hiking and watching his U of A Wildcats compete in sporting events.

Dr. Pfau participates with most major health plans and is accepting new patients.
