Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was caring, down to earth, and made me feel completely comfortable from the consultation to the surgery. I’ve generally been very anxious around doctors and hospitals but Dr. Bartlett eased all my nerves with his very kind bedside manner and the jokes he made right before surgery. He made me feel much lighter and I felt cared for the whole time.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

From day one Dr. Bartlett and his team were very welcoming and comforting. I am very bad with medical situations and everyone there made me feel more comfortable by answering all my questions and explaining in details what the surgery consisted of. They kept in contact before surgery on paperwork during the week of surgery and still to this day making sure everything was okay and to see if I have any questions. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Clear communication throughout the process. Amazing surgical result. Friendly and calming presence of doctor, nurses, and all staff. Very pleased with my result. It has improved my life

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr Bartlett and his staff are absolutely lovely. Continuously asking if I had any questions and always kept me well informed. My experience in Dr. Bartlett's office as well as the hospital was genuinely amazing, I was never scared of what was going to happen.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

I am extremely satisfied with my results!! The bedside manner was great and I was made to feel very comfortable, especially with me being nervous due to this being my first time going under the knife. The results were beyond what I could've imagined or hoped for. Dr. Bartlett did a great job and had a great team behind him!


I had septorhinoplasty to fix my deviated septum and broken nasal bone. For more than 10 years I could not properly breathe out of my nose. Today, over 3 months post op, I can breathe much better and it has improved my physical conditioning tremendously. The best thing about this experience is how easy and comfortable it was. From the consultation all the way to today (over 3 months post op) I felt very comfortable and assured that getting this procedure would be/was one of the best things for me to get done. I can breathe so much better and I didn't even realize how bad my breathing truly was until after the surgery. Very satisfied.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

It's obvious that Dr. Bartlett truly cares about not only the outcome of his work but about the patients positive experience and actual person-hood.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

i had done some research on the type of top surgery i wanted. Dr. Bartlett was on the top of the list in just about everyone I had talked too. After meeting with him I knew that he would be the best person and indeed my chest looks exactly as I had hoped for. My follow ups were great and I was well cared for. The best part was that in about 6 weeks I was back to doing everything I was before but with the chest I wanted.


This was the best experience. I am so happy with the final result. I felt like the surgeon understood exactly what I wanted based on my concerns and insecurities. I love it so much because he was able to change what I didn't like, yet keep everything that I did like. It was not a large change, and I love that I still look like myself. I couldn't be more grateful that I chose this place. I still feel like myself, but every day I wake up and I feel so beautiful. My smile is brighter, and I wear less makeup, because I feel so comfortable with my appearance. It has made me so much more confident because it has brought out my features.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Bartlett and his staff exhibit the highest level of professionalism, courtesy and care. He and his staff explained everything to me pre and post op and I felt confident in their care. I feel more confident in my appearance.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

I got everything I hoped for out of the surgery. No problems or complications. The doctors and nurses were so nice. I knew exactly what was happening and felt reassured. I love the results. I had gender reassignment chest reconstruction. Now I can breathe without restricting my chest. I can exercise freely, be topless, and overall happy about my own body. I feel normal and I am so thankful.


I have several severe medical problems, and Dr. Bartlett was very willing and very able to handle all of my special needs. His entire team was incredible. I feel confident and happier than I have ever been.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Amazing results! Very friendly and helpful people the entire way through (from consultations, to phone calls, through & after surgery)


This surgery was something I really really wanted, but was terrified to go through with it and spend the money on it. Dr. Bartlett and his entire staff made me feel comfortable, safe, educated, informed, and my feelings validated. The office was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The results have been life changing and made every penny spent completely worth it. The entire process was as smooth and pleasant as it possibly could have been! Over all, self confidence. I'm just more happy in my day to day life. I dress up more, wear make-up more, go to the gym more, and I finally don't mind being in pictures.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Bartlett and his staff, as well as my surgery outcome. Everyone was wonderful, helpful and kind. I recommend him every chance I get. Top surgery is something I have wanted since I was 11. I'm 55, so that's a long time. It has changed everything.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Everyone at BWH Faulkner was so nice and attentive on surgery day and everything happened right on time. Dr. Bartlett and his staff were incredible leading up to surgery and after surgery as well. I always felt comfortable asking questions and received answers quickly. Can't recommend this group and Dr. Bartlett enough! Overall confidence has improved as well as being able to touch my nose without cringing anymore.


Overall empathy, kindness and skill of surgeon and his entire staff. Dr. Bartlett went above and beyond to repair my nose. I can finally breathe clearly! Fixing my nose has changed my life! I can live pain-free. I can look in the mirror and mentally recover from the assault I endured. I feel Whole again.


Dr Barlet was exceptional in his knowledge of what had to be done and care and consideration of what i wanted and explained what actually needed to be done. I was at ease that this Dr. was exactly who I needed and would highly recommend to anyone who needs revision surgery or any other plastic surgery. I am very happy with my results. So grateful I found you. I can breath freely now an I feel confident with my appearance.
