Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (569)

Face Lift

Dr. Bartlett the procedure(s) in detail. He also recommended against certain procedure(s) which indicates that he is looking to achieve the best result, not just the most remunerative.

Face Lift

[Satisfied?] Yes. Office staff were friendly, no wait time. Dr. Bartlett was thorough and kind.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

Before my surgery Dr. Bartlett said to me that he would not leave the operating room until I would be happy with the result. I felt this throughout the whole process. The nurses were kind and helpful in keeping me calm before the surgery, and it felt like everyone truly cared about helping me through the experience. Any time I called with questions the people at the office were so nice and understanding and always found the answers for me. I could not have asked for a better team of people to help me through everything.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

Staff was super easy to work with, quick and helpful with emails and calls, just the nicest people, Dr. Bartlett himself was super professional and informative and the end result was nothing less than a work of art. I could not be happier with my experience and surgery and I would recommend him to anyone looking for top surgery.

Chin Implant

I was very pleased with the results, and Dr. Bartlett has been extremely helpful in answering my questions (even when the office is closed). I felt like I was in great hands the entire process from the consultation through now.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

The results are excellent -- I'm so happy with how I look in the mirror now. The recovery was quick and painless as possible. Not having drains was a huge perk for me.

FTM Mastectomy with Free Nipple Graft

Dr. Bartlett and his staff were very professional and made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision. He listened to me and answered any questions that I had, and took the time to explain if needed. The surgery itself went smoothly. I am now a little over 3 months recovery, and I haven't and any issues and am feeling great. I would highly recommend Dr. Bartlett.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

Dr. Bartlett did an incredible job, he listened to what I wanted but also did what would look best on my body and I 100% agree with his choices. I knew my results would be good but they drastically exceeded my expectations in every way. Plus I had minimal pain and was comfortable during every step of the process, from the initial consultation all the way to my post op appointment. I truly can't say enough good things about my experience.

FTM Mastectomy with Free Nipple Graft

Dr. Bartlett and his team are very helpful and communicative and I always felt as if I was in good hands. The procedure went well and I had no complications, and recovery is also going well.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and all his staff were incredibly kind. Everyone was mindful of using my correct pronouns, which was especially important to me -- I have found that even some trans care specialists are not well-versed in nonbinary identity, but everyone at the office seemed very well-informed. Dr. Bartlett was clear and realistic about my surgery options -- I had previously thought I might be eligible for keyhole/peri, but learned that I was very much not a candidate for that. He was thoughtful and gentle in preparing me from a major procedure. His staff were diligent about helping me prepare, by setting me up with essential prescriptions and aftercare instructions well in advance. The procedure itself was seamless, even with all the COVID protocols in place. The healing process was remarkably quick and easy -- I barely needed the prescription painkillers. At three months post-surgery, I am very well healed up and absolutely thrilled with my results. I couldn't recommend this practice more highly.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

Dr. Bartlett and his team were all nice, helpful, and patient. They were all willing to answer all of my questions. I liked what I heard from them and I left feeling confident in my decision to choose Dr. Bartlett.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his entire team are extremely thoughtful, professional, and helpful. I can't imagine having had a different surgeon. Every stage of the experience was positive, from my initial consultation to sorting out difficult insurance to the surgery itself all the way through post op care. I was always able to reach someone directly, and no matter how silly or small the question, everyone took their time to help me and furnish me with the information I needed. I had never had a surgery before and was so nervous going in, but Dr. Bartlett and his team (and the staff at Brigham & Women's) made sure everything went perfectly, even under the constraints of COVID-19. I felt totally safe and cared for and I could not be happier with my top surgery results (double incision). I'm only sad I didn't do know about Dr. Bartlett and his team sooner because this surgery changed my life and my results are truly incredible. I can't recommend this team enough. My deepest thanks to Dr. Bartlett, Courtney, Lisa, Sarah, and the entire team.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was very warm and welcoming. He made me feel very at ease and safe with something that is very important to me. I was very nervous about starting this whole process and Dr. Bartlett and his team have been so kind and are making everything smooth and easy.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Great communication. Dr. Bartlett really knows his stuff and I felt super comfortable talking to him and he answered all of my questions without making me feel like I was asking too much. His whole team is super nice and know what they are doing.

Breast Lift

I had consulted with several surgeons before finding Dr. Bartlett. Dr. Bartlett was the first surgeon who I felt really listened to my concerns and understood the outcome I was hoping for. My surgery went well. My caretaker and I were well prepared for what to expect. I didn't experience much pain and only took 1 narcotic pill. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery! Dr. Bartlett adjusted an area that caused me a lot of distress since puberty. Now I am able to live my life without constant worry and disgust about my body! [Single best thing is...] Results.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Got all my questions answered. Sounds like short waitlist. Was patient with me.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Everyone was super kind and helpful. I had surgery rescheduled because of COVID and there was good communication throughout the process of rescheduling. I'm super happy with the results as well as the information and support I received post surgery. I am overall very happy with everything to do with my experience. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bartlett to anyone looking to have top surgery. All of the people were so kind. I felt very comfortable asking questions and I got prompt and detailed responses whenever I emailed questions.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett explained everything efficiently and thoroughly, which I liked. He seems like a great guy and I trust him with my surgery. He made me feel comfortable and listened to my concerns and answered my questions.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

From the very first phone call to the minute after surgery, everyone at Dr. Bartlett's office was friendly and accommodating. During my consultation with Dr. Bartlett, it was clear to me that he was patient and understanding. He listened to my concerns and my requests, and would offer his guidance, and expertise to make sure that I get the best result for my procedure. I got top surgery August 11th, despite the COVID pandemic, the whole staff made sure the procedure was smooth. Even post-surgery, and my weekly/monthly check-ups, I felt so cared for. I highly recommend Dr. Bartlett and his team. I couldn't have asked for a better experience... thanks for changing my life. I'm currently 2 months post-op and my new chest has given me the confidence to live the life I've always wanted. If you're looking for a top surgeon in the Boston area... this is your man! The best thing about this whole experience is that the staff will constantly assure you that things are okay. They make sure to call you weeks before your surgery to make sure you're off any meds, and things you should be doing prior to surgery. They call you the night before to make sure you're all set, and they call you the morning of. They accommodate you from start to finish. They are professional, caring, and friendly in all aspects. They constantly check in and they make it known that you are important to them.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

I felt cared for and valued by Dr. Bartlett, his team, and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner hospital. My surgery went smoothly, and the hospital and Dr. Bartlett’s team regularly checked in on me throughout recovery.
