Hailing from Mt. Vernon, Kentucky, Dr. Jamie Settles Carter, DPM, C.Ped. 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.
Patients Love Her Big Heart
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. Carter is known to calm even the most frightened patients. Something about her no-nonsense way of explaining procedures puts everyone at ease.
Moms Seek Out Dr. Carter
We have patients that travel state-wide for Dr. Carters' compassionate pediatric care.
Moms trust her to listen to them. Seems like an obvious thing for a Doctor to do, but in this fast paced world, it's now a sought after skill.
Dr. Carter understands that parents have an intuition when something is wrong with their child and she actively involves them in the treatment.
One of Dr. Carter's favorite things about treating peds is that she can focus on prevention. You've heard the saying:
Many common foot problems are hereditary, so it's possible to get ahead of them while the kids are still young.

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.

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.
