Glynn Bolitho, MD Reviews (230)

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.

Eyelid Surgery

I like the results! I was treated with the utmost care and concern. Dr. Bolitho and his nurse were very professional and thorough! [Single best thing is...] The staff listened to me and explained things well. They took their time with me.

Pectoral Implants

Dr. B spends most time and has the greatest expertise. Office staff is the best.

Breast Lift

Dr. Bolitho and all the staff were attentive to my questions, needs and recovery. Great experience. Made me feel as if I was their only patient.

Breast Augmentation

The customer service experience was excellent as was Dr. Bolitho's team. Everything was top notch and I felt this is the right place to receive care.

Breast Reduction

Great friendly service. Professional caring [Single best thing is...] Felt very safe and cared for.

Breast Augmentation

The experience was one of a kind. The staff was top of the line, and the Doctor is exceptional. Everyone works together in the best way to give you the best experience. In addition, they are highly accommodating to visits after your surgery and provide a lot of assistance in any way possible. 10/10!!

Face Lift

I also had brachioplasty surgery along with a face lift. The entire team was extremely professional and caring. Very compassionate.

Breast Implant Revision

They addressed my specific need with care, respect, and professionally. They were friendly and made me feel they were experts with a cheerful bedside manner. They took care to listen to what I wanted.

Face Lift

I am very happy with the outcome of my Face Lift. I feel it looks very natural, yet I can see a difference from before. My friends also tell me how natural it looks. I'm glad Dr. Bolitho is more of a conservative surgeon. He won't do anything that he feels will make you look like you've had work done. I feel like my Face Lift turned back time a few years. It's not that I suddenly look 25 again; that's not going to happen unfortunately. But the face lift freshened me up and took away the sagging skin around the jawline. My sister told me, she sees the old me, when she looks at me now. (Not the old me.... the old me. ha ha)

Face Lift

The doctor was wonderful. He took the time to explain everything, he was patient with all my questions. I never felt rushed, or that any question was too silly. He showed me what would be the best course of surgery to get the result I desired. His patient coordinator was also so helpful, they were funny, and I felt at ease immediately. I so trust this doctor and his staff.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Bolitho and his team were very careful with my health and did not push me into agreeing to any procedures I did not need. I needed a hernia & diastasis repair. A few days before my scheduled surgery I developed a viral upper respiratory infection and Dr. Bolitho responsibly decided to postpone the procedure for a week to prevent complications to my surgical recovery. Now after 2 months of post-op recovery, I am noting how well Dr. Bolitho and his team repaired my tissues and muscles. The scar is very thin, I have no dog-earing or creases, my hernia pain is gone, and I feel my core is stronger now that my abdominal muscles have been re-tightened. During my recovery I had weekly checkups with the team, and if there was any doubt there might be a complication, the team fit me in for an appointment right away, even getting me urgent care when it was suspected I may have a blood clot (I did not). I am very impressed with their professionalism, patient care, and of course mastery of physiology.

Tummy Tuck

The doctor and staff did a great job removing loose skin from weight loss. I had almost no major swelling and am very pleased with my results.
