A Lexus dealer is the obvious answer.

Ideally you want the key stolen to be removed from the system, so if you go to an independent make sure they can do that.

Is there a way for your vehicle/address to be determined from what was stolen? Possibly you should think about the mechanical locks being changed too.

I would seriously consider an insurance claim to replace the necessary electronics, locks etc on the car. If the car is otherwise stolen the insurers may try to wriggle out of a claim if a stolen key has been used. As Colinbarber says you may be OK if the stolen key can be disabled.

also worth checking your policy for key cover. Some insurers include this just like windscreen cover. If so I'd suggest paying the excess and let them sort it.
