Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (484)

Gender Affirmation Surgery

The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. I was never misgendered and the front desk staff woman was very respectful when my deadname came up. Dr. Bartlett was knowledgeable and kind and made me feel very comfortable even in the more uncomfortable parts of the consultation. Overall I was very pleased with my experience and am thrilled I found such a great place to go through for surgery.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

While still early on in my healing, the results already look fantastic and I am very pleased with the level of care and professionalism I have been shown throughout the process. Every question I had during early healing was answered promptly and with great detail. The processes were all explained to me beforehand and I felt well prepared for recovery. The single best thing about this process is how respectful the surgeon and staff have been the entire time. No one made me feel like I was asking stupid questions or that I was taking up too much of their time, and detailed information was always provided to me.

1. The administrative and nursing staff were incredibly friendly and professional. 2. The finance/insurance person (I can't remember her name) was kind and did a great job explaining something that I find to be very complicated and stressful. 3. Dr. Bartlett was very kind and professional, and seems to really care.

Everyone at the office was very knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Bartlett was very professional; I didn’t think I would feel that comfortable with a surgeon. It was a very informative and helpful consultation.

The staff were all very respectful. They used my preferred name and pronouns when possible. Additionally, they were very time-efficient with booking my appointment and I heard back from the financial team quickly.


Staff members are a pleasure to work with and Dr. Bartlett is both a gentle man and a gentleman. Recovery was so quick. My splint came off within a week.

Dr. Bartlett was incredibly kind and communicative throughout the entire process. His office staff were also professional and caring. He made sure not to promise more than he knew he could deliver but he did his absolute best. I am incredibly pleased with my results and glad I had surgery with Dr. Bartlett.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was warm, polite, and informative during the consultation and on the day of surgery. The administrative staff were prompt in replying to all of my questions, helped me with insurance approval, and clearly communicated all necessary steps leading up to the surgery. I also had a great experience with Dr. Bartlett’s nurses, who provided my initial post-op care. I felt respected throughout the experience, and I am pleased with the surgical outcome itself.

Dr. Bartlett is very professional, kind and reassuring. When minor complications occurred, he fixed it and was available.

Everyone was very professional and polite. I felt very welcomed there and I was given detailed explanations as to what the process was for surgery. I felt like I could trust all of the people in Dr. Bartlett’s Office and that they were all great professionals.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his team were incredibly knowledgeable and put me at ease right away. As my first time being operated on it was better than I could have asked for, and my recovery was even shorter than anticipated. I did not feel sore whatsoever immediately after the procedure, nor did I feel nauseous upon arriving at home.

Tummy Tuck

The personal care and attention I received from Team Bartlett when I was at Mt. Auburn Hospital because of a complication was exemplary!

It was far easier and less painful than I imagined. Dr. Bartlett is kind, caring and respectful. My results were exactly what I hoped for. [Single best thing is...] lack of pain and easy recuperation.

Dr. Bartlett was patient and thorough and I felt very confident that he would do an excellent job. The rest of the staff have been extremely responsive and answered all of my questions, no matter how ridiculous they seemed.

Dr. Bartlett has clearly worked with many trans patients on this procedure. He answered all of my questions clearly and alleviated many of my fears about what will be involved. As someone who identifies as non-binary, I was especially impressed that he didn't make any judgements about me regarding gender.

Greeted right away by receptionist. Very nice team. Everything was explained to me.

Staff were very respectful of name and pronouns in both the consult itself and any correspondence through email/phone. Dr. Bartlett gave me a lot of information in a way that was easy to understand and answered and questions that I had. I walked out very confident that I would be happy with the results of the procedure.

It looks great! Dr. Bartlett is skilled and kind and patient. Dr. Bartlett's staff - office and nursing - are welcoming and informative and kind.
