Gender Reassignment Surgery

All of the nurses and staff were extremely kind to me on my surgery day which was really helpful in diminishing my anxiety and keeping myself and my family feeling positive during our wait time since we arrived early. The office nurses are also incredibly responsive with any questions I have :) This procedure is life-changing. The joy of ability to just throw on a tshirt without having to wear a chest binder anymore is inexplicable. I am so stoked.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his staff’s bedside manner was phenomenal. Never once did I feel uncomfortable with anything said or done by the staff. Being overweight I was worried about the results (just finding a surgeon in the area that didn’t require what would be a huge weightloss was a challenge), but I couldn’t be happier with how my chest looks.

Revision Rhinoplasty

The add was doing a repair from a previous ENT Dr that did a terrible job on septopladty my nose had collapsed due to his ineptitude! I was fearful I’d never breathe well again. Dr Bartlett was excellent. He fixed my nose and now I can breathe!

Ear Surgery

I am highly satisfied with everything with which Dr. Bartlett is pleased. The process is not complete and Dr. Bartlett has not reviewed the results of the second surgery. As a result, it is premature for me to formulate a level of satisfaction for this aspect of the overall effort.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Gender reassignment surgery is a life-altering experience. Dr. Bartlett and his whole staff team treated me with respect and care in advance of, day-of, and after my surgery (this portion is still ongoing as I write this). They gave me clear expectations of what my experience would be like, answered all of me and my partner's questions, and responded to all of our follow-up queries.Dr. Bartlett came highly recommended by both my physician and several other individuals I know in the trans community who've undergone chest reconstruction -- a rare combination of word-of-mouth overlap. I was pleased to feel like a human being at Dr. Bartlett's practice, rather than just a body to cut into and alter. Dr. Bartlett's cosmetic fee is pricey, there's no question about it. However, I'm writing this just over 2 months after my surgery, and I'm quite satisfied with the aesthetic result. My scar is already beginning to alter and fade in appearance and thickness, and I know that my money was well-spent on Dr. Bartlett's services. I look forward to healing fully over the next 10 months and seeing how my new chest shapes up as I undertake more exercise and muscle development.

Eyelid Surgery

Excellent surgeon!!

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his staff are incredibly genuine people. They cared about me and what I wanted. They were respectful. Throughout the months leading up to surgery, I knew I could email any of them with a question and receive an immediate response. From first contact to set up a consultation to post-op care, I’ve been happy with it all. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Bartlett was awesome to deal with. He listened to what I wanted, explained it all and the result is amazing!

Gender Reassignment Surgery

All information was given to me was as specific as possible and staff were always available if I had questions or concerns. Everyone was very friendly and professional in the practice. The end result of my procedure was the best I could have hoped for and I was extremely happy with the overall experience.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

The entire staff at the surgeon’s office were friendly and helpful. Any questions I had were answered promptly and thoroughly. I was very much at ease because of the amount of respect the hospital staff had for the surgeon. I’m finally me.

Face Lift

Caring and talented surgeon with impeccable integrity.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was caring and kind throughout the entire experience. The office was more than willing to respond to my questions, and to soothe my anxieties pre-surgery. Everyone I encountered on my surgery day was so considerate and took their time to explain what was happening and what they were doing. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my top surgery, and I have already recommended Dr. Bartlett to friends who are searching for top surgery surgeons.

Breast Augmentation

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Lots of information given in writing; welcoming staff; got prescriptions ahead of time; detailed and friendly surgeon; good understanding of what to expect. Excellent surgical results.

Ear Surgery

My son had ear surgery and the staff was excellent at working with a 5 year old boy who has a short attention span as well as lots of nervous energy walking into the hospital. Everyone was fantastic and made him feel at ease. I am grateful that we had such an amazing experience. Thank you to everyone!!!! My son didn't know his ears stuck out before the surgery but now he comments on how much he likes his ears. From a 5 years old, that is priceless.

Breast Implant Revision

Staff friendly and informative. Dr. Bartlett did a great job. Had prior augmentation issues to rectify and the results are amazing. He's a very skilled surgeon with a great bed-side manner! The breast augmentation looks extremely natural. The size is more proportionate to my body. The silicone is a big improvement to the saline. Very satisfied


I can breathe better and do not snore / breathe heavily at night. Felt the surgeon was short on time and did not sit with me long enough to fully answer all my questions. He was always on his way out if I did not immediately have a next question ready to ask. I also felt rushed out of the surgery room when I had barely gained consciousness post anesthesia. Finally, I have noticed extra pimples and more nose hair since my surgery. Otherwise, I had a good experience.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr.Bartlett is amazingly kind and respectful as were all of his staff. I had a great experience with my surgery and am thrilled with the results. So grateful for the whole experience ans highly recommend to others.

Male Breast Reduction
