Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (545)

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett immediately put me at ease. His peaceful demeanor was reassuring and he was extremely easy to speak with. Dr. Bartlett utilized specific virtual technology to allow for shared diagram drawing and was well acquainted with and able to conduct a full and complete virtual consult. Dr. Bartlett gently guided the consult, giving information, prompts, and education along the way. I had consulted with several other specialists about my procedure before I spoke with Dr. Bartlett and feel extremely confident with my decision to undergo surgery with him. He is well and away the most professional and grounded surgeon that I consulted with. His expertise comes across clearly and easily.

It is very clear that Dr. Bartlett has a passion for his work and advocates for his clients, I would strongly recommend Dr. Bartlett and his team to others for top surgery or other procedures.

Dr. Bartlett had a peer to peer review with our insurance company after our Child’s procedure was denied. After their meeting our insurance company approved the procedure 100%. That kind of attention and care goes a long way and it is greatly appreciated!
