Glynn Bolitho, MD Reviews (242)

Breast Lift

Dr. Bolitho and staff were amazing. Very responsive and answered all my questions. The procedure went well and I am incredibly satisfied with the results.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bolitho and his team are very professional and also personable. They are perceptive, good listeners who seem to try to achieve the results you hope for, sometimes with an uncanny knack for reading between the lines, putting into words what we patients may not know how to describe. I felt heard, and I believe they will deliver a good result when my surgery takes place. Looking forward to feeling ageless with the enhancements!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

The results are fabulous! Everyone in the office is always amazing! Making appointments is easy! Staff is great! Bolitho is great!

Breast Reduction

I was unsure of the health risk, but the medical information I received from my doctor and his staff reassured me that the risk far outweighed the benefits of my surgery. I stand up straight, I feel more confident and I worry less about feeling lumps during self breast exams.

Breast Lift

The staff and Dr. Bolitho made me feel very comfortable and were very caring and extremely knowledgeable about their practice, all that and a great sense of humor. I felt extremely confident I have made the best decision in choosing Dr. Bolitho for my breast lift.

Tummy Tuck

Doctor was kind, knowledgeable, provided me realistic goals, was not willing to do a surgery that he felt the results would not me worthwhile. I also liked that when I met the Doctor I had my clothes on and after that I went in to the other room to prepare for the visual portion of the consult.

Breast Augmentation

I had an easy time checking in, and had a lovely cup of coffee made for me while I waited. Although I did have to wait a while to be taken into a consult room, they made up for it by giving me a starbucks gift card. During the consult I felt my opinion was valued and they heard all of my concerns and thoughts.

Breast Reconstruction

The staff were very attentive and well dressed. The office is very presentable and classy. The doctor looks great and kind. Looking forward to many visits and to complete my goal. Thanks

Breast Implant Revision

Very professional clean and accommodating the doctor was friendly and explained everything I needed to know I will definitely have him do my surgery!

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone was both professional and caring. I need both those qualities from care providers. Everything ran like a well oiled machine. I felt confident in the expertise of all involved in my surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

I was vey impressed with the staff and Dr. Bolitho. Everyone was very informative and just down to earth people. I liked that Dr. Bolitho asked a lot of medical questions. I have had other consultations, where they did not ask these types of questions. I was impressed with the awards that Dr. Bolitho has earned, which were given to him by his piers. Karen said he does not like to put these plaques on the wall. She also said that he does not like to advertise. I respect his humbleness. He has all 5 star reviews. I had no doubt when I left his office, that I would choose him to do my surgery. I am scheduled for end of October.

Brow Lift

Noticeable different shapes on eyes. Incisions different on each eye. Hooding and sagging back on sides of eyes. Bad eye problems very irritated.

Eyelid Surgery

Great communication and bedside manner


The team answered my questions and helped me realize that the timing was not right and I needed to wait a few months.

Mommy Makeover

The staff was very welcoming and friendly and Doctor was extremely kind and warming.


The staff is warm and friendly. The coffee was a delicious bonus. Since I’m post surgery I have to say I’m beyond delighted with my outcome!!!! I had an expectation but the results go far have exceed them. I’m thrilled!!

Face Lift

In my opinion Dr. Bolitho is the best surgeon in the area. This is my third surgery performed by him and I drive two hours one way to his office. He is a perfectionist at his work and his patient care is unsurpassed. His staff is knowledgeable friendly and kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Bolitho.

Face Lift

Both Dr. Bolitho and Karen made me feel completely at ease. I actually felt like they were listening to what I wanted done. I did not feel like I was just another lift the doc was going to do. I so appreciated that.

Injectable Fillers

Healed quickly, less pain, staff supportive and attended to my needs and questions.

Breast Reconstruction

The entire team was very welcoming and friendly making me feel at ease. [Single best thing is...] How the team made me feel comfortable with the procedure, explained every step and was very sincere in their approach.
