Momna Younas, DPM

Dr. Momna Younas is a native Floridian who completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Florida where she specialized in exercise physiology. Upon completion of her internship at the Shand’s Orthopedic Sports Medicine Institute, she realized her passion for fitness and exercise had grown into a love for the mechanics of the human body. This passion leads her to further her education at Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine. Thereafter, Dr. Younas transplanted to NYC where she completed a rigorous three-year surgical residency at New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. During her third year, she served as chief resident, running the inpatient service, training junior residents, and continuing to refine her diagnostic and surgical skills.

She is a diligent and skilled podiatrist who earns her patient’s trusts and provides quality care that leads to positive and lasting outcomes. Her background as both a fitness instructor and athlete have helped her understand and empathize with her patients on a deeper level. She is a compassionate physician who always takes the patient’s lifestyle and goals into account prior to establishing a treatment plan. Although Dr. Younas misses the year-round warmth and sunshine of Florida, she loves being able to experience all four seasons in NYC and is grateful to be part of such a diverse and inclusive community.
