Roberta Gartside, MD Reviews (244)


Extremely friendly and listened to the concerns I had before and after my procedure

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Gartside is very professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. She is thorough, considerate, and informative. I felt very comfortable considering this procedure. Her receptionist is also very informative and makes you feel right at home. I had an overall excellent experience.


I found everyone very friendly, easy to communicate with, and responsive to my questions/concerns. There was virtually no wait time for my appointment when I arrived and it was easy to schedule. Dr. Gartside has a very good bedside manner.

Breast Reduction

Surgeon and nurses were kind and helpful to my family and I. I felt comfortable and at ease with everyone I talked to. I have not had back, neck or even much knee pain since the surgery.

Breast Reduction

Everyone was patient and kind in helping me prepare for and recover from surgery. The scars are hardly visible!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gartside is very transparent in sharing details about the procedure, what to expect, and what the healing process will be like. I was thoroughly impressed with her 'real-ness' in explaining the process and procedure. She made me feel extremely comfortable.

Breast Reduction

Doctor G was all about her patient! Took her time to listen, hear what I said, explain everything and put me at ease. I would recommend her to everyone I know!

Breast Reduction

Dr. Gartside and her staff were wonderful! Dr. Gartside is very professional and made my surgery/recovery very easy. All my questions/concerns regarding my procedure were addressed promptly. Dr. Gartside's staff was always pleasant and very helpful. I have and will continue to recommend New Image to my friends and family. Thank you for taking great care of me!

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Gartside is so skilled and was so professional in talking with me, I feel bad about not rating her services more highly. She says she will work with me this year to fix the problems. But there were problems. She did three procedures: eyelid surgery, under-eye surgery to remove some bulging fat under one eye, and a neck lift. The third was entirely satisfactory. With the eyelids, they are quite uneven. She says she will even this out, which would be great. And I also have an odd little white scar (or something) near one tear duct.Although she showed me the fat removed (a photo), SOMETHING came back there. She said she will suction that out in a visit.At this point, two out of three surgeries have not been successful. Dr. Gartside said she will work with me to fix them.One final point: Preparation before the surgery left me quite unprepared for how long I would be in a great deal of pain. I think this could have been explained better. I do like and respect Dr. Gartside, and am optimistic about having the results work out.

Scar Revision

I was told, when scheduling the consultation appointment, that I would receive an estimate the same day. That was not the case. I was lied to. Instead Dr. Gartside spent less than 5 minutes telling me to come back in 6-8 months. The fact that this cost me $75.00 is absurd. I wasted my time and money. To top it all off, Dr. Gartside was rude and inconsiderate.

Neck Lift

I truly respect Dr. Garside and what she can do. My family members and I had done few procedure with her. My consultation was wonderful and very educational. I am still waiting to hear about the estimated cost or possible opening procedure time so I can seclude time and know if I can afford I and when to schedule time off from work. Thank you

Breast Reduction

Dr. Gartside was very good at explaining the procedure, the after is almost identical to pictures I had seen. I am very pleased with the results. I wish now I'd had done this sooner. The scars as not as bad as I had in my head, 2 months post op they are healing great! My neck and back pain were gone the next morning!! Yeah!!Suggestions: Recommend open button large, loose, front opening shirts for recovery time and surgical paper tape, prior to the surgery to be purchased and applied post surgery to reduce scarring . I had bought loose larger shirts to pull over my head, I didn't even think about not being able to lift my arms above my head with ease. I had to buy them post surgery. And address any problem suture sites that may appear odd to the patient during the healing process ahead of time, show pictures during recovery time so the patient knows what to see, I had to call and ask about them as I was worried about an infection. I still have the same area healing 2 mos. post surgery. The front desk coordinator wasn't very coordinator, she seemed to be very new.Overall, I am very happy.

Face Lift

The doctor was recommended by Dr. [name], for whom I have the very highest regard. I appreciated the doctor's down to earth approach and demeanor and the fact that she didn't try to persuade me to go ahead with the procedure. Rather, she explained that it was all my decision.


Everyone was professional and quick to respond. Excellent customer service.

Thigh Lift

I'm not sure how well my concerns and questions would be addressed.


Was provided with all the information I needed.


Dr. Gartside was wonderful! She's highly experienced, friendly, and informative. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience and practice. The front desk staff is also exceptional. I would highly recommend to anyone. I'm going back for another procedure soon!

Eyelid Surgery

I feel much better about my appearance when I look in the mirror. As a result, I am more confident. The doctor was very knowledgeable and highly skilled. I am very happy with the results because it looks natural but much improved. The staff was also professional and caring, as well as friendly.


Results are good (still healing and adjusting) and expect that things will continue to improve. Also appreciate Dr. Gartside and her assistant at the Reston Office. They are both helpful and professional. . Dr. Gartside is very skilled at her craft - she does not over promise and she provides realistic expectations. I trust she will create the best possible completely natural looking results. Her honesty, point of view and pragmatic bedside manner is also valued.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

surgeon was very comprehensive and did not not put pressure on me to schedule the procedure,
