Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (529)

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

The staff was very prepared and competent with the technology used in the telehealth visit. They answered every question I had and even drew diagrams via the virtual whiteboard. They made sure that I clearly understood everything before ending the appointment and I was not rushed at all.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was very thorough, he listened to my questions. He asked questions to get a better understanding of what I wanted. He and the staff were very nice and professional.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and staff were friendly, gender-validating, and professional. I felt immediately at ease. How he described his practice and work made me feel comfortable in trusting him.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

Everyone at the office was very nice and helpful, and we really liked Dr. Bartlett.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Office staff were informed and professional and I was seen on time. Dr. Bartlett and his nurses were all very informed and up to date on the latest research both regarding transgender surgery as well as opioid initiatives. I appreciated that Dr. Bartlett consulted me on what my surgical options were and which would likely have the best results for my body rather than just telling me what he thought I wanted to hear. I never felt like he was trying to sell me something.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett gave great explanations of all the possible procedures and potential outcomes in a way that was easy to understand. He made me feel very comfortable and covered most of my questions before I even had to ask.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett, as well as his nurse and office staff, have been extremely kind and informative throughout the entire process. They continue to keep me updated and always reply quickly. :)

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Everything turned out great. I honestly walked in very nervous because it was my first surgery but everything was explained to me thoroughly and I was reassured about everything and it made me feel very comfortable. The whole surgery and recovery went well and was really painless, I can only hope any future surgeries go this well. [Single best thing is...] Everyone made me feel very comfortable

Gender Affirmation Surgery

I sincerely brag about Bartlett and his staff to anybody that will listen to me talk about it. As somebody who works in health care (and in an operating room, no less) I couldn’t find a single flaw. As a matter of fact, I feel I may have learned a few things to take back to my OR. Everybody I came in contact with from day one knew what they were talking about and made what would have normally been a very vulnerable/scary experience such a cakewalk. The staff were informative and organized and it is so refreshing to be treated like a normal patient for once. I can tell that he not only truly cares for his staff (everybody seems so happy to be working there) but he and his staff truly cares for the patients coming through the doors as well. Could not be happier with my experience. The weeks leading up to the surgery I was contacted via phone call and email frequently. Reminders to stop taking my hormones two weeks before, and just a simple weekly checking in and seeing how I am post op. Having a nurse so involved in my care and emailing me so promptly felt so foreign ... it was so reassuring and I felt more taken care of than I ever have in any health care setting.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

My recovery was really easy. I was in basically no discomfort the whole time, had no drains and didn’t need any of the post surgery prescriptions. I’ve been exceptionally pleased with my results and am basically back at full mobility.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Everyone from my first phone call to the office to the current emails regarding post-op appointments through COVID has been extremely helpful and respectful. Dr. Bartlett is very professional, the right amount of humorous and serious when he needs to be, and truthful and straight-forward with his explanations. Overall, it has been a great experience!

Breast Augmentation

I was taken very good care of and made to feel extremely comfortable. All staff were so friendly and professional. The results are what I've always hoped for. [Single best thing is...] The results! I certainly cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Bartlett and his team. I felt as though I were being pampered through the entire process. I have always dreamed of having a breast augmentation and was held back by fear. I am so glad I finally decided to do it, I am so glad i found Dr. Bartlett, and I wish I'd done it sooner!

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Amazing results! Super streamlined and transparent process. Great communication/bedside manner. Could not be happier with my experience. Great results.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Top surgery/chest wall reconstruction. Staff are friendly. Dr. Bartlett made me feel as comfortable as possible. My chest looks great! I feel more comfortable in my own body.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his staff made me feel very comfortable during the consultation and were extremely respectful. He was thorough but not belittling in his explanations and answered all of my questions. The staff were kind and direct, everything was stated in clear and effective terms. I feel very solid in my decision to move forward with surgery in the future.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr Bartlett was very professional and helped reassure my family that this procedure was safe

Gender Affirmation Surgery

From our initial phone contact, to our greeting by Katie, our pre-op consult with Dr. Bartlett, through surgery & our follow up visit - everyone was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable & professional. What was an incredibly stressful step taken by our child/family was handled with wonderful care and assurance. Dr. Bartlett did an incredible job & our child's recovery went extremely well due to the care he took in the operating room. The Best Plastic Surgeon in our book! What made the surgical procedure incredible was the thorough pre-surgical workup, the dedication of the nursing staff, Dr. Bartlett's patient and thoughtful explanations and the fact that this incredibly complicated surgery was completed in 3.5 hours and our child was home in bed (1 hour drive away) 6 hours after entering surgery.

Male Breast Reduction

Dr Bartlett was professional, thorough and kind. Great personality. Spent time listening and answering questions

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Everyone in the office was incredibly friendly and helpful from the day I booked my consultation through my post-op follow ups. Dr. Bartlett has great bedside manor and was kind and compassionate. I felt like I was in very good hands throughout the entire process. The best thing about the experience was how the staff all took time to make me feel valued and seen as a patient and person.

Breast Augmentation

Perfect size for me, didn’t feel pressure to do anything I didn’t feel comfortable with, great results, very professional. [Single best thing is...] The results are what I expected. All questions were answered to make me feel comfortable.
