Dr. Hurless

Dr. Michelle Hurless,
DPM

Dr. Hurless comes from a small town in northwest Ohio, where she was raised on a horse ranch.  She grew up with 3 older brothers and spent her childhood outdoors with them.  She was constantly putting casts and bandages on her toys growing up, so becoming a podiatrist was a perfect fit for a her.  Patients find it easy to relate to Dr. Hurless’ down to earth personality and warm smile.

Dr. Hurless recently finished her residency training outside of Dallas, Texas and was thrilled to join Lexington Podiatry, which allowed her to move closer to her big family.

During her residency training, Dr. Hurless was trained to perform just about any foot and ankle surgical procedure, ranging from bunion and hammertoe correction, to foot and ankle trauma.  She firmly believes in exhausting conservative care treatment options, but if surgery is warranted she can provide you with the care you need.  She has extensive training in both conservative and surgical treatment of pediatric, adolescent and adult flatfoot deformity.  In fact, this is one of her favorite things to treat!

Dr. Hurless believes that every patient is unique and her attention to detail helps to create a customized and well-rounded plan of care to alleviate your pain. She has a caring and giving spirit and gets a great deal of joy when she is able to help patients get back to the things they love to do.

Get to Know the Doctor

Dr. Hurless has a passion for mission work.  As a child, she idolized mother Teresa, which is what sparked her love for helping the less fortunate.  This was a driving force in Dr. Hurless becoming a physician.  She traveled to Nicaragua in podiatry school and to Mexico during residency to provide care to those who are unable to obtain foot and ankle care otherwise.

She has a love for all furry things, enjoys woodworking and home projects in her free time, is a wannabe Yogi and enjoys outings with her Labrador, Gryff.  Dr. Hurless and her husband recently welcomed their first baby, J.T. so she has her hands and her heart very full.

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!

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!

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!!!

Lexington Podiatry is absolutely the best podiatrist office in the state. Not only do they excel at the physician aspect, they have customer service and comfort of the patient perfected! My family and I have been patients at Lexington Podiatry for several years and have never had anything but positive experiences! I highly recommend Dr Jamie Carter as we have been her patients for years however I’m sure the other doctors are great as well.

Everyone that I came into contact with was absolutely friendly and very knowledgeable. The check in and out staff were amazing also! I would absolutely recommend Lexington Podiatry to anyone.
Courtney Joseph
I was very impressed with my first appointment. All of the staff were friendly and professional. Dr. Carter quickly diagnosed my issue, which is rare. I will have testing to confirm the diagnosis. I felt listened to. No other podiatrist had even expressed this as a possible issue and treated everything separately. I’m a patient for life.

As always my visit was amazing! The office has taken precautions to help patients feel safe during COVID. Everyone is wearing masks and I was quickly brought back to the exam room where I waited there instead of the waiting room before being seen. Super organized and efficient process from start to finish! And the treatment received from Dr. Barko was great!
