    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I visited Lexington Podiatry. I had been to 4 other podiatrists both here in Lexington and Louisville and was probably expecting the same results. I saw Dr. Carter for my toe issue.

    I want to give a shout out to Angie Turpin! She is so friendly and thoughtful and does a great job with the laser treatments for my foot pain. The representatives at the front desk are also great to work with. I wish I could remember their names, but I definitely remember how they make you feel!! Very courteous and professional. I highly recommend Lexington Podiatry.

    My first visit was yesterday, and I was very impressed by the friendly and caring staff, especially Dr. Freels, Jordan, and Abigail. I felt like my needs were individualized and being met right from the start. I'm excited to see how my foot improves and I truly feel it now will. Thanks to you all!

    I walked into Lexington Podiatry in so much pain. I had X-rays and Dr. Carter gave me my diagnosis, and told me how she would treat me. By the time I got home I felt like a New person. No pain in my feet and I wasn't using the cane! I am so glad I went to Lexington Podiatry. Thank you Dr. Carter you're simply the Best!!!

    Love this place! The doctors and staff are very knowledgeable and super friendly. First foot doctor ever to figure out what was actually wrong with my foot. I would highly recommend them if you have any problems with your feet!
  • Marcia H's Story

    I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Carter. Not only did she pinpoint my dad’s problem and treat him, she did so with such kindness. Everyone in the entire practice was great!
  • I needed Podiatry services fast. I looked online and was able to book an appointment myself for the next day. Absolutely wonderful service. I was very nervous going in. I was in pain and did not know what to expect. Dr Carter was wonderful, kind and very skilled. The teaching the staff did so I could care for myself afterward was outstanding. It was by far the best post treatment teaching I have received. I am a nurse myself and I understand good medical teaching. I am thrilled to find an excellent Podiatry practice.

  • Great experience from check-in to check-out. Staff is friendly and welcoming. The office is beautiful. This was my first visit and I had several problems with an injured foot, and they administered all treatments needed that visit. It wasn't something they just consulted about and then scheduled later, which I was so appreciative of. I already have so much relief! Dr. Freels is so friendly, and has awesome bedside manner. I'm happy I chose Lexington Podiatry!

  • Everything was great! Only thing that I could say needs improvement is communication. I had to pay $50 copay with my insurance which I expected but then also had to pay $150 before I left. It was explained that the $150 is what's paid before insurance and then after insurance is billed I would get a refund for left over balance but I was not expecting that so kinda put us behind. Other than that it was great!

  • I've been to quite a few doctor's offices and none made me feel quite like Lexington Podiatry. From the moment I walked in I felt comfortable. It didn't feel like a stuffy doctor's office. Everyone I spoke with at the clinic was very personable and I felt right at home. Dr. Carter, along with the nurses and receptionists, all were very approachable and relaxed to make someone feel as comfortable as possible.

    It was supposed to be just a normal office visit but they were able to do the procedure right then and there, and they sent you home with necessary materials to make sure the healing process is taken care of. I would say prepare to have your calves judged, but I'm sure that's just me! Haha

    TLDR; 5/5 definitely would recommend this place. It's comfortable and efficient.

  • After visiting a couple podiatrist in the area With no luck, I came across all the great reviews of Lexington Podiatry. I made an appointment and was seen the next day. Wow am I glad I made that appointment. When you walk in you feel like you are in a spa. I didn’t even sit down to fill out paperwork and I was taken back. Dr Freels spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed as we discussed my problems. I see a lot of specialist. She really listened and understood my health concerns and didn’t allow me to waste any extra money on procedures before addressing the issues up front first. Every podiatrist I have seen has wanted to operate even though my own foot surgeon will not. I was getting frustrated until I found Lexington Podiatry. No wonder they have the most reviews I have ever seen at a Podiatrist! Keep up the good work! I will see you all soon. Or text! They even have an option for that! Amazing!

  • It was very easy to schedule my appt and be seen as soon as possible. The office was nice and clean, like you are entering a spa. I was greeted by staff who were very friendly! I gave a 4 because there were a million things coming at you at once and it was a tad confusing and overwhelming from the imaging (which nice to get it read there) but the reading and examination was a little rushed and to then someone else comes in the office with braces and tells you a huge dollar amount. Luckily they offer payment plans to help with the financial burdens. All in all i liked my experience I would just suggest that doctors slow down a tap and pause for questions.

    Edit to add: as soon as a posted the review, I was contacted immediately to address my concerns. The staff member was patient with my questions and took her time in explaining everything. She stayed on the phone with me and I did not feel rushed. My second appt Dr. Freels, she acknowledged my experience and apologized. She took her time in explaining recommendations and she was very patient with me and provided alternatives that best suite me and my lifestyle. I would highly recommend anyone to go there because you will get top level service!

I've been going since 2019 and their orthotics have literally saved my feet (Achilles tendinitis). Plus, she's picked up on other aches and pains that I had deemed normal but she knew how to alleviate fairly quickly. I remain impressed with their practice and will definitely go back.

  • Words cannot express the gratitude that I have at this moment for Lexington Podiatry and Dr. Carter. I went into their office unable to walk without pain and left a short time later with minimal discomfort and 4 days later my feet feel 100% better. I had never been to a podiatrist in my life and no one that I knew had either so I did a Google search and went with Lexington Podiatry because they had the highest ranking. Now I understand why, they work hard at keeping a stellar reputation. Thank you Lexington Podiatry and Dr. Carter for helping me be able to walk pain free.

  • I would suggest this doctor. She was very helpful and she listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions. I would recommend her or Dr. Freels. This is the only two doctors that I have been to in this office. And they do listen to what you have to say. I learnt a few things on my visit today that I did not know.

    As far as the guy in finance(David) He is kind of rude and doesn’t work well with the customers or Assistance in this office. This is very bad for customer relations and bad for good reviews. He doesn’t try to help the customer or work with them in any way.

The staff are very friendly and Dr. Freels didn’t beat around the bush. Within minutes figured out I had a broken foot and had me set up with laser therapy and a boot. I had been walking around for months on a hurt foot not even knowing what I had done

    After a week in the boot and laser therapy.. I feel 100% better. Still have many weeks in the boot but it is definitely worth it!!

    Would definitely recommend this practice!!! They are amazing!!!

She also told me about all the possible treatments, as her assist was already looking up my insurance and giving me what it would cost me out of pocket. That has NEVER happened at any other office. THANK YOU!!!

    The doctor recommended b-complex, which I was already taking. The assist immediately began writing down the key elements that my vitamins should include.

  • I chose Lexington Podiatry for treatment of ingrown toenails, because family recommended Dr. Freels and a number of friends are patients there. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my treatment.

    First, I was surprised that the dr wanted to get X-rays of my feet prior to even talking with me, and for ingrown toenails?? Then, the nurse proceeded to sell me everything recommended for the procedure: bandages, shoes, etc. Again, I hadn't even seen Dr. Freels at this point and unsure of what procedure she would even recommend.

    Apparently, this is standard procedure at Lexington Podiatry, as another nurse confirmed that everyone who enters gets X-rays. So before even seeing Dr. Freels, I had spent over 400 dollars.

    Dr. Freels cheerfully came in and looked at my toes; and told the nurse to numb me, without even explaining the procedure. I needed more numbing medication as she began the procedure, so the nurse gave me more. I found it interesting that Dr. Freels told me if I couldn't stand the pain that she would have to operate in the hospital, and that would cost 4,000 dollars. So, I felt like I was going to have to endure the pain no matter. Later, Dr. Freels comes back and within 5 minutes, the procedure is finished. It did not hurt, and I was thankful.

    Two days later, I noticed black spots on my toes. I texted pics to the number they told me, but no one got back to me until almost at the end of the day, saying they could not receive texted photos. So, I emailed them. The next day, I was contacted about an appt for the following day.

    Dr. Freels told me that I was suffering from chemical burns from the procedure and told me to use zinc. I expressed concern that they seemed infected and asked for a test to confirm. She swabbed my toes and gave me a prescription for an antibiotic.

    About 3 days later, the office called to tell me I had an active MRSA infection. They gave me zero information, except to tell me to continue taking the antibiotic and to come back in a week.

    I was terrified and dutifully reported back to the office, this time, seeing Dr. Harliss. She proceeded to tell me she couldn't understand my lab results. According to her, I did NOT have an active MRSA infection. So, she called the lab, and they confirmed it. Thank goodness, Dr. Harliss was so conscientious!

    Almost a month later, my toes are getting back to normal. I canceled my last appt with them and asked for my X-rays to be sent a week ago...still waiting. Needless to say, I cannot, in good conscience, recommend them to anyone.

  • I was already a big fan of this group but walking into their remodeled lobby was so calming and relaxing. All employees displayed great care and concern for all patients. They offer hot tea, coffee, soft drinks and bottled water. They even tell you why examine rooms are kept at low temperatures and blankets are available if you need one. Dr Barko is by far one of the easiest medical professionals to talk to. She discusses her diagnosis in a simple easy to follow explanation and encourages questions for better understanding. If you need the services of a Podiatrist, make an appointment with one of their four doctors. You'll be glad you did.

  • They severely misdiagnosed me by making assumptions without performing many tests, and thus I was not given the correct treatment (which worsened my condition).

  • My First visit to Lexington Podiatry was a wonderful experience! They treat you like a real person. Everything was well explained. And they didn't push me to make repeated visits. Everything was taken care of today. I don't write many reviews, but I was so impressed today that I had to write it down.

  • Is it possible to find better care - NOPE! Hannah, Victoria, Tara, Breanna and last but not least CHELSEA did a fabulous job of tending to my needs as a patient all while embracing the friendly atmosphere. Dr. Carter was wonderful as always. I truly can't say enough great things about the staff who make up the Lexington Podiatry experience.

  • I cannot describe how excited I was to have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Freels. After being in pain since March I couldn't wait! I absolutely had THE BEST experience ever at a physician's office. The office itself is gorgeous! Even smelled very relaxing. Even while scheduling my appointment, Lori helped answer all of my questions. Thank you Lori!!! The staff look great in their matching scrubs. The physicians have left no stone unturned with the planning of technology and their EMR. Even the monitors used displayed my x-rays in hi-def. Crystal clear!!! Dr. Freels came along and shook my hand and introduced herself. She not only explained to me what was going on but she educated me on how to fix the problems and how we were going to do this together. I love her YouTube channel and the down to earth real life information she shares. During my appointment she explained everything in detail and most importantly, she listened to me and what I've been dealing with. After having a not so good first experience at another podiatrists office, working with her was such a relief and now I have hope and a clear plan of action. I look forward to working with her through this process! Great work Lexington Podiatry!! I have bragged about you all all day today. I highly recommend!!

  • Well, I had put off a podiatry appointment much to long, never like going to new Drs and clinics. But, so glad i picked Lexington Podiatry, this clinic should be an example to all. These professionals do it right from the comfort menu, the super friendly staff, the respect to talk and listen to you, and then the quality care. After just one visit I intend to continue with Dr. Freels as my podiatrist. Recommended, I give them 10 stars !!!

  • I have been going to Lexington Podiatry since May of last year... I wouldn't have changed a thing! Dr. Jamie Carter is super, and Dr. Amy Barko, well, she is just amazing! My journey with them has been one of the best experiences I have had with a medical/surgical team... and I've had more than my share! Your entire staff is pleasant, and extremely helpful (and very courteous) I would AND DO recommend you to everyone and anyone I think may need your services!

  • Wonderful people. I have been going here for years for plantar fasciitis. Today I had an ingrown toenail fixed. I was nervous but I didn't feel a thing. Everyone is so nice.

    I didn't want to look so the nurse gave me this cute cyclops mask that her son made.

  • Dr. Barko has been the best! Hands down! My husband and I have been very impressed and will not go to another Podiatrist practice as long as this one is open! The staff is very nice and willing to answer any and all questions as well. Highly recommend!

  • from the start at the reception desk to finishing up at checkout everything in between nothing but top-notch service I would recommend this to anyone who needs a Podiatry appointment. The staff was professional kind helpful and very conscious of the needs of their patients it was a very busy office with lots of hustle and bustle going on behind the waiting room doors and nothing but wonderful service did I find! Thank you Lexington Podiatry!!

  • Dr. Barko and her staff are amazing! Not only did she resolve the immediate issue for which I scheduled the appointment, she recognized that I had chronic pain due to unrelated problems and took the extra time to address those during the same visit. I couldn't be happier with my experience at Lexington Podiatry. Everyone was very friendly, compassionate and helpful from the second I walked in the door. My only regret is that I didn't go sooner!

  • My daughter had an infected ingrown toenail. We went to another podiatrist in town 3 mo ago and the problem persisted. Dr. Carter was VERY proactive and took care of the problem the same day so that my daughter could start healing. Dr. Carter was very caring, patient, and put my daughter at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend her services.

  • So glad I choose Dr Amy Barko to correct a bunionectomy gone badly wrong performed by a surgeon NOT affiliated with Lexington Podiatry. Dr. Barko has been a Godsend after months of pain. She is a very knowledgeable, skilled surgeon, and so easy to talk to. She will assess, study and research your situation and come up with the least invasive course of action to treat your situation. Highly recommend. Love, love, love her!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Carter and her medical assistant. I had let a previous experience prevent me from scheduling a much needed ingrown toenail surgery. I was beyond anxious. Dr. Carter and her assistant were amazing. There was very little discomfort and the experience was 100% better than last time I had the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Carter highly. I won't put off further issues due to anxiety.

  • Listen... this doctor changed life for my wife. We had been to 3 doctors including a supposed nationally renowned rheumatologist who was a total flop. This amazing lady properly diagnosed and treated my precious wife and our her on the path to total pain free walking. We consider her a blessing.

  • This office has changed my life as well as my husband. We are so happy that we made the decision to come to this office. I have been treated by both Dr Carter and Dr Barko and I will never go anywhere else for my feet. We spent years trying to find a close to the door place to part because my husband suffered with foot pain. Now we do not have to do that. I love this office and all the staff. You will not find a better office anywhere.

  • From the new patient paperwork process to the quality of care, Lexington Podiatry and Dr. Carter made the treatment for my injured ankle enjoyable and informative. Having suffered a similar injury in my other ankle, I was familiar with the basics of the treatment process but the quality of the time spent on patient care, explaining the short-term and long-term treatment, and getting me back on my feet (literally) was excellent with Dr. Carter as compared to my previous experience.

  • She was great. She and Christina were super sweet to my son (patient) and my other 2 kids. She communicated very clear and gave options. The best was when she told me what she would do with her own kid, so very trustfull. I really will recomend her.

  • Dec. 12 visit was to discuss having my a bunion removed from my right foot. Dr. Barko explained the procedure thoroughly. She pushed shoe inserts which they sell. I rarely wear athlete shoes which is the only suitable shoe for inserts. I got the custom dress shoe set that cost $ 180.00. I immediately went to a shoe store to try different shoes that would work. The inserts is a waste of money but I could return them as a credit for surgery. The office has not call back with a appointment time

  • Every appointment experience was absolutely amazing and wonderful, from the time you walk through the door, I will recommend this office to all of my friends and family, I just love Dr. Barko
