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!

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!

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.

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
