Richard Bartlett, MD Reviews (500)


I loved everything.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

I felt respected by staff and doctors throughout the entire experience. I appreciated the extra effort and medicine Bartlett gave to make sure I was comfortable, I was hardly in pain while healing. I loved the efficiency in contacting and working with my insurance to make sure my surgery was covered.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett and his staff are exceptional. Not only were they kind and compassionate throughout the experience, but they always welcomed my questions and concerns and I was only ever met with warmth. Dr. Bartlett did an amazing job with my surgery. I truly could not have better results. Hands down would recommend him (and have) to everyone I love.

Male Breast Reduction

Dr. Bartlett is a skilled surgeon who thought hard about my case, presented me with my options and followed through with excellent results. His office was professional and prompt in all communications and expectations - they did what they said they would do. I selected Dr. Bartlett after conducting a lot of research. His associations with Harvard and his specialization in gynecomastia surgery led me to him, and I am very glad that I selected him as my surgeon. I am still healing but there was barely any pain associated with the procedure. I saw excellent results immediately and am looking forward to what things will look like as the scars continue to heal. If you are looking for a professional surgeon who genuinely cares about getting it right. Look no further.

Breast Lift

My concerns were taking seriously. I was shown my pre-op photo to show the difference now. I was assured the breast would not keep sagging.


The best things I would say are the results. I am very very happy with the results. There are no scars/marks of any kind and very precise results. Dr. Richard is an excellent surgeon and the surgery results are better than I expected. There are no scars/marks of any kind. Dr.Richard and his staff are very friendly. He is very direct in terms of expectation from the surgery.


He took the time to talk to me about the risks and was honest enough to state that should he say he can do it, I would be no more satisfied than I am now with the result. I respect that he was this honest & would not do any of the procedures I was inquiring about. He felt that all of these would not produce what I hoped for.

Tummy Tuck

I am happy with my results and they were as expected. The doctors and staff were extremely helpful both before and after my surgery. Also, all of the documentation set my recovery expectations before hand.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr. Bartlett is the rare gem who has the bedside manner to match his brilliance as a surgeon. As a non-binary transmasculine patient, I felt continually reassured by him and his staff that he both respected me and my family but also that he would do everything he could to get a good result. I am incredibly happy and I tell everyone I know that he is amazing.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

[Single best thing is...] Bartlett's expertise. Bartlett is an incredible surgeon. He pays attention to the details other surgeons pass over and is a perfectionist to a fault.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was very professional and respectful of questions asked during pre op visit. He gave me realistic expectations for results. Costs were discussed with office manager so there would be no surprises.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

Dr.Bartlett was very kind. I was treated with respect every step of the way. The personal attention I received was exemplary

Gender Affirmation Surgery

There were no drains needed at all for surgery which is amazing to me. Great team of all staff. My surgery results came out amazing and so even. [Single best thing is...] Seeing the results.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

The staff, all around, were extremely friendly, welcoming, accommodating, and affirming. I felt very comfortable and confident speaking with them and with Dr. Bartlett. Everyone was helpful and patient with answering my questions and all of the information was very thorough and detailed.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

The office itself was clean and in pristine condition. You can tell the people working there truly enjoy their jobs, which means those in higher positions are treating them well and care for their well being...which is a rarity. I’ll support any business that cares for their employees. The nurse that met with me was kind and welcoming. She was very attentive and asked me many times if I had any questions which was refreshing. As somebody in health care I know that it’s very important to include the patient in their care. Dr. Bartlett was so genuine and seemed to sincerely care. I didn’t feel like I’m just another dollar sign. I work with doctors and you can’t fake that kind of bedside manner. And at the end of my appt Lisa walked me through the billing process and it helped so much. I trust that she knows what she’s doing. I was very satisfied with the entire experience. From the beginning to end.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. short with me, never asked if I had questions / concerns. Front desk staff recall snobby, dismissive, uninformed, rude.

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.

FTM Mastectomy (Top Surgery)

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.

Gender Affirmation Surgery

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.
