Welcome to Modern Podiatrist

Modern Podiatrists' complete foot and skincare line embodies a fusion of homegrown passion and medical expertise. Drawing on two decades of experience in her podiatry practice, Dr. Nicole Freels shares her handcrafted, at home treatments across the globe.

Inspired by her hands on experiences with her grandfather, Dr. A.O. Kelly, she has crafted the perfect blend of natural ingredients and modern medicine with your care in mind.

Now successfully leading the way in innovative treatment, Modern Podiatrist started with humble beginnings. Dr. Freels' calling began as a seed of passion planted in her grandfather's podiatry clinic.

At the age of 11, Dr. Nicole Freels spent time tidying up toenails at her grandfather Dr. Arthur O. Kelly’s podiatry clinic in Portsmouth, Ohio. Progressing from cleaning toenails to assisting Doc Kelly in creating custom ointments with a mortar and pestle, Dr. Freels found her calling for comprehensive conservative medicine in her grandfather's apothecary, surrounded by shelves of natural remedies.

Modern Podiatrist is more than lotions and soaps, spanning to include a finely-milled salt scrub and a hydrating balm with a soothing lavender fragrance, each meticulously crafted with top-tier ingredients to provide exceptional foot care at home. Drawing from her passion for podiatry, Modern Podiatrist also homes prescription strength options for conditions like Athlete's Foot and other dermatological concerns.
