Hailing from Mt. Vernon, Kentucky, Dr. Jamie Settles Carter knew from an early age that if she pursued medicine, she wanted to stay true to her roots and treat her patients with dignity, compassion and kindness.
Her medical journey began with undergraduate studies at Eastern Kentucky University, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.
After graduating from podiatry school at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Carter completed a three-year surgical residency training program at the VA Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio, with a focus on diabetic wound care and limb salvage. This particularly intensive residency prepared me to treat not only the feet, but the whole patient, because we dealt with patients that were very sick.
During her residency, Jamie trained with more than 20 different surgeons and did an extensive amount of work at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in the wound care department, where they house one of the largest hyperbaric treatment facilities in the nation.
From the young age of 13, Dr. Carter worked at a family owned Wendy’s. She credits this early job training with instilling a good work ethic and the importance of good customer service, which now translates to excellent patient care and a great bedside manner.
Dr. Jamie Settles Carter is an expert in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery, as well as the latest techniques and procedures for treatment of heel pain, diabetes, ingrown toenails and all other common foot and ankle conditions. When she designs a comprehensive treatment plan for you, she takes into account your personal needs, lifestyle, age, occupation and limitations. Dr. Carter is currently accepting new patients.

Over the past few years, Dr. Carter has begun to change her focus toward the care of pediatric patients. Having 3 kids of her own (Madison, 4, and a new set of twins, Carson and Dylan that were born in March of 2017), she is passionate about giving kids the treatment they need, in a very comforting environment. Bringing children to a doctor office is sometimes a traumatic experience, for both the kids and the parents alike. Dr. Carter strives to make the children that come to the office feel like they are one of her own, all the while, putting the parents at ease.
One of Dr. Carter’s favorite things about treating peds is that she can focus on prevention. You’ve heard the saying:
Right? It’s true!
Many common foot problems are hereditary, so it’s possible to get ahead of them while the kids are still young.
