Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (186)

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett is a very nice and respectful person and he listens to what you have to say. He is good at making his patients feel comfortable. The teams of nurses at the hospital, along with Dr. Bartlett, made me less nervous andore comfortable on my surgery day.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

My experience from start to finish was amazing. Everyone was friendly, kind, professional and I always felt very comfortable and informed about each and every step in the process. Dr. B did an awesome job.

Eyelid Surgery

I am very pleased with the results of my surgery and feel confident that I look as good as possible for a woman my age. From beginning to end, Dr. Bartlett and his staff are the most professional medical team I have ever encountered. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Bartlett unconditionally.

Face Lift

Everyone that’s ever know me has called me Mrs. just so. In other words I am very particular and also a perfectionist in all areas.I couldn’t of picked a better Plastic Surgeon. My husband and I met Dr Bartlett and didn’t even feel that we had to get a second Opinion. No one can even tell that I had this done. People will say oh I love your haircut you look so good and then other people I tell will say “oh my God I want his number”. They say they’ve never seen anyone look so natural.Dr Bartlett is a perfectionist and very tedious and is an artist. He listens and cares and even called me over the weekend to see how I was doing. His Entire staff Very friendly and knowledgeable as well.I would recommend Dr Bartlett to anyone!!!!!

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr Bartlett was absolutely wonderful to work with. His staff were caring and involved in all of my follow up care. The whole experience was everything I could have asked for. I don’t have to wear a binder anymore! It’a been wonderful to be able to walk around shirtless too.


Very professional, extremely comfortable environment! Every step of the way, pre-op, day of surgery, post-op was handled perfectly! All the staff were amazing and helpful because I was super anxious and they definitely made it much less nerve-racking!


I visited Dr. Bartlett & his team at his office for a rhinoplasty in January 2018. This is a procedure I have always wanted for myself. The entire process was made very easy for me from consult to post op. Everyone I interacted with in the office and on the phone was kind, professional, and helpful. The nurses at this office were outstanding and were able to calm my nerves (as a nurse myself!) I really appreciated that. The anesthesiologist that took care of me was incredibly professional and made me comfortable at every step of my case. Dr. Bartlett is obviously fantastic. Not only am I happy with my results, he really took the time to take photos, show me my projected result, and listen to what I wanted to achieve so we could make a realistic goal for my surgery. I have seen him operate before and specifically chose to have surgery with him because he is one of the most meticulous and thoughtful surgeons I’ve ever seen. I have highly recommend his practice to my friends. I also appreciated the option to have the surgery done in the hospital or his office. Thank you so much to the whole team! Before my procedure, I’d always catch my nose in a reflection and notice it. It was on my mind a lot as a feature I considered unattractive. Even though my rhinoplasty was subtle, it was something that I feel has boosted my attractiveness and confidence. Of course, people told me that I didn’t need it done, but it’s something I’ve always wanted for myself. I am so happy with my choice


Dr. Bartlett listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered accordingly. He was very accommodating and I could not be happier with the results. His staff walked me through the surgery step by step and made sure to answer all of my questions. I had no concerns going into the surgery and had a smooth and easy recovery. I could not ask for a better experience. The results are flawless; very natural and didn't completely change the way I look.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

The staff were friendly and respectful, which unfortunately is not common practice for other surgeons in Boston who perform gender affirming care to transgender and non-binary people. The outcome. I finally feel comfortable in my body, and am very pleased with the aesthetics of my new chest.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

I am a transgender man who prior to surgery had very large breasts which caused me a great deal of dysphoria. My only stopgap was binding, which was ineffective, inconvenient, and painful. Now I have a beautiful flat masculine chest that feels much more natural to me. I'm completely relieved of my chest dysphoria. I have chest euphoria! Activities which were difficult or stressful before are now open to me to fully enjoy: exercise, swimming, wearing T-shirts. I can just live my life. It's impossible to overstate the relief and joy of having a body shape that matches my inner vision and expectation of myself. . I couldn't be happier with my result. Dr. Bartlett is a true artist. He is professional, respectful and made me feel at ease.


Dr. Bartlett achieved exactly what I had requested and thoughtfully prepared an outcome that met my expectations. I previously wrote a paragraph on a secure website regarding how I found Dr. Bartlett and my overall satisfaction with the entire experience.


Dr. Bartlett should be known as Dr. Cool because of his calm demeanor. Overall, it was a very good experience with Dr. Cool and his phenomenal staff. I've already told two of my friends about the practice and one has already been in for a consultation. Well, I think I have two answers: 1) The fact that my deviated septum was corrected and 2) The fact that I am no longer as self-conscious as I was about my nose.

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!
