Great practice, doctor and personnel takes time to listen to your questions, surgery went very well and I am very happy with the results. I'm feeling great!
Office staff was friendly and professional- knew who I was when I walked in the door. The follow-up appointment was quick/easy and the Thermitight procedure and after-effects was exactly how Dr. Gartside described it. No surprises. The full benefit of the procedure hasn't been achieved yet but I'm optimistic that I will.
Dr. Gartside's office is very clean, everyone is very nice and easy to deal with.
In addition to being totally at ease with Dr. Gartside, her expertise, ability to communicate with me to assure all of my questions were answered and concerns addressed, confidence that she is absolutely the best surgeon for the procedure I want, her staff is amazing. Leah and Christine are exceptionally kind and patient. Specifically I would like to mention that I expressed a question or two to Christine via email. What followed was what I only would have expected if I was writing to a parent or close relative, as I could not believe anyone else would care so much to go WAY above and beyond to help answer my questions and allay my fears. Not only did she consult Dr. Gartside directly with my questions, but then also did research on-line and provided me with a very detailed response, photographs of what I might expect (which were incredibly on point), and links to products I could order to help me through a transition period. Not only was I stunned at the level of time and effort put into answering my questions, but knew without any doubt, this person truly cares! Perhaps she considers this simply doing her job, but as someone in her 50s who greatly appreciates good customer service, I feel strongly that she has done as much for me as any medical staff member ever has in trying to diminish concerns or fears in providing me with knowledge and tools to help me through. While I am thrilled to have found Dr. Gartside (saying this before my surgery), I am equally delighted to be able to have Christine answering my emails or calls. She has held my hand so far through every step of this process. I am truly grateful.
Comfortable environment, friendly physician and staff. Fuller cheeks
Leah provided important information about insurance requirements before my appointment. Dr. Gartside answered all of my questions. I liked that it was just the two of us in the appointment room, it felt more private and less intrusive. And made me feel like the doctor was actually getting the information herself. Christine was very communicative and worked to get my surgery approved by insurance. She also answered all of my questions. I've been very satisfied with the process so far.
Dr. Gartside understood the natural looking results I wanted and was very skilled at achieving them. She explained her approach and why she was taking it. She also provided information on what I should expect and when to follow up. Natural looking but effective
They made me feel like I was the most important patient they had. They were well organized and every detail was thought of. I work in the medical field so I know what it takes to create these results. A lot of attention to detail and caring. I have raves about my appearance but no one is quite sure why until I tell them. I don't look like I had plastic surgery! I just look good. Dr. Gartside is an excellent physician. Painless
The surgeon and staff were outstanding. From my initial visit to the day of surgery there was never a question if I had made the right decision to choose Dr. Gartside. I am so glad that I did. I feel more energy, my knees do not ache as much and I can wear clothes that I have not been able to wear for years.
The results of my recent procedure are not complete yet. Dr. Gartside went out of her way to be accommodating to me and I appreciated that. I had a single procedure on my back and I was very pleased with results.
Staff professional and helpful. Dr nice and highly skilled
Dr. Gartside is extremely honest and direct as to what would benefit me.
I really liked those of the staff I had contact with. The doctor was precise and to the point. I trust her completely.
Dr. Gartside was very thorough in her explanation to my daughter. She advised her of possible negative outcomes of the surgery and what to expect after the surgery. Dr. Gartside was personable and direct. She answered all our questions in detail.
Dr Gartside always has time to answer any questions, even though I have been going for the same procedure many months; I always feel comfortable and I believe she is honest and not "pushing" additional products or procedures.
Dr. Gartside always answers all of my questions in a down to earth, friendly manner. She never rushes me and presents information in a way that's easy to understand. [Single best thing is...] NO MORE FOREHEAD WRINKLES
I am more satisfied with my appearance and the way my clothes fit. The office staff was professional, attentive and friendly. The surgeon was professional, approachable, friendly, attentive, listened, provided detailed explanations and pictures, provided written pre and post operative information. Responded promptly by telephone when called after hours.
My appointment ran smoothly and quickly. Dr. Gartside is very knowledgeable about the products she provides. Even through this was a repeat treatment for me she still took the time to do a quickly evaluation to make sure no adjustments were needed before starting the injections. I feel like I get a quicker onset of the Botox when I have her doing my treatments and the results are fantastic! My results were seen within a week and they last the period of time that they are estimated to last.
Too early to tell if it worked.
Great care and awesome results!
I can wear regular bras and shirts. My confidence has gone up and I am no longer scared of wearing a shirt that may be unflattering just because of the size of my breasts. I feel lighter and no longer have chronic pain in my back. I can go on runs and not have to wear 3 sports bras. I also don’t have to worry about people staring at my chest or wearing tops that are “too revealing” even though they weren’t. Dr. Gartside made everything easy to understand and never made me feel dumb oruncomfortable with the questions I asked. She was patient and made sure I wanted the procedure done. She was very kind and made the experience flow smoothly. All the staff in the office were also friendly and helpful. I am highly satisfied with the results of my surgery as well and I feel a million times more confident.
Dr Gartside was very accommodating of my schedule and saw me on a day she normally doesn't do procedures. She was very knowledgeable about skin pen and it's effects
I was interested in 2 or 3 plastic surgeries. After I met Dr Gartside--it truly felt that she is NOT UP TO DATE with all newest techniques and options doing these surgeries and benefiting as must as possible from them.
I spoke with two different female surgeons before choosing Dr. Gartside. I immediately felt comfortable with her and her staff. Dr. Gartside had very helpful information, website and graphics to explain the procedure and recovery. She was able to give me a very accurate expectation of both as well as the results, which were exactly as I hoped and expected after my consultation and pre-op visits. I am thrilled with my results and feel like I'm starting my 60's with a new body that makes me feel confident. Her office is very professional and her staff helpful and patient with all of my questions whether by phone or email. I would highly recommend Dr. Gartside to any of my friends and family. To be able to fit into clothes properly and not oversized to cover certain parts of my old body. Gave me the jump start I needed to change my daily lifestyle, eating habits and exercise habits.
I was made to feel comfortable about an otherwise uncomfortable topic (to me).
Dr Gartside and her staff are so wonderful. She does such amazing work. They make you feel so welcome and process easy. Finishing my process of loosing over 400 lbs. to remove so much excess skin which cause issues itself.
I liked Dr G still trying to decide
The single best thing is the results! . I am very happy with my results! The staff were all helpful and nice.
All the staff were friendly, helpful, informative, professional, and punctual
Very good in all the information and seem to want the best for my procedure
I was very satisfied
Dr. Gartside is very thorough in explaining all options for my concerns and always provides a helpful view on pros/cons for reasonable alternatives. She is never trying to sell me on anything, only wanting to make sure I'm happy with what I doing. She will discourage things that may be reasonable but not really needed. She is also fairly conservative in not over doing any particular treatment so that I see improvement but never walk away looking like something has been done. Dr. Gartside has an amazing intuitive feel and great expertise in the work she does so that it always comes out just right. And she's just such a wonderful, bright person to be around!
Dr. Gartside is very warm, friendly, personable, and listens carefully to your needs and concerns. I trust her absolutely, as she has been through similar experiences herself. As a former hospital employee, I feel I can discern honesty and integrity in the doctors I choose. Her office staff has been extremely helpful, also; responding quickly to any questions sent their way. Problem solved.
Staff professional and friendly. You are made to feel valued as a patient. Physician is very easy to talk and listens to what you want.
Dr Gartside was clear, used terms that I could understand and was 'to-the-point'. She was confident and personable, and had a good sense of humor. I felt very comfortable with her, and one of my friends had used her for this same procedure a few years prior.
Dr Gartside is a skilled expert on facial surgery!! Everything heals up so well with the most minimal scars!!
Dr. Gartside made me feel so at ease with her manner and explaining the procedure from start to finish.I was highly impressed.
My surgery and recovery went very well and I did not experience any complications or excessive pain. I am thrilled with my results so far!
Everyone one on staff and the doctor herself made me feel comfortable with this somewhat uncomfortable topic.
I was not happy with the fact that the cost of the procedure was not given to me by the surgeon during the appointment, I had to wait several days and send a couple messages to finally receive something. The cost is too high and I still don't have all the details about the procedure, so I need to continue researching. A more personal approach in a very personal issue would have been better for me.I'm still trying to decide if I want the procedure done or not, the doctor didn't give me all the confidence and assurance that I needed.
Staff very friendly and I was prepared for the procedure. I had SculpSure done in the office. The procedure was very painful but I did tolerate it. I will go back in two months for Second treatment. The doctor and her assistant checked on me throughout treatment and encouraged me through the experience. Left feeling drained.
What a wonderful doctor! She is honest, open and had great suggestions. I will always go to her first for future recommendations!!!
We haven't had the procedure yet but was very impressed by the Surgeon and her assistant!
My surgeon did an excellent job and I now know how to handle the office staff to get the help I need in a timely manner. I can show off my arms and don’t need to cover the extra skin hanging down. It is very freeing.
I have yet to have my procedure. Therefore, my rating is satisfactory, in good faith, I expect all will go well and the highest rating will follow.
The staff was GREAT! My primary physician recommended me to her. She was GREAT answered all my questions and she was timely! I do plan to return to have more work done with her! [name]
I was satisfied.
Dr. Gartside made me feel more at ease about the procedure. I was nervous about it, but she was so professional and self-assured that it helped significantly. I am experiencing a lot less pain. I feel less self conscious and can wear clothes I could not before.
I think that the experience is as good as it can be.
Very pleased with my experience!
Dr. Gartside was the 2nd surgeon I had a consult with for breast reduction surgery.Dr. Gartside went over my information and spoke with me about my expectations. We discussed the procedure and she had computer based visuals of the procedures and before and after photos that were very helpful. She made me feel very comfortable. I was also very impressed with the helpfulness of the office staff. I left the office knowing that Dr. Gartside was who I would be wanting to perform my surgery. The next day I called back to move forward with scheduling the procedure.
Dr. Gartside is a no frills kind of doctor. She gets right to the point and is very honest which is helpful when planning a cosmetic procedure. I absolutely love my results and my healing time was much less than I had anticipated. My results! I got back my confidence - you can’t put a price on that!
The person at the front desk on the day of my consultation was not friendly... it almost occurred as if it were an inconvenience for her that I was there. Additionally, there was a delay in response from the coordinator when I reached out with questions. I reached out a gain and she said she'd been out sick - which is fine, though someone else could probably check for patient messages while she is out. She said she had to speak with Dr. Gartside, catch up on emails (I don't need to know that), and that she'd get back to me shortly. That was a couple days again and I called today - my 3rd time seeking the same information.
Feel listened to! Also have been treated by Dr. Gartside previously and trust her.
All of my questions were answered and I was always put at ease. Thank you
I had been to 4 other plastic surgeons prior to see Dr. Gartside. I had had a Double mastectomy and reconstruction - the reconstruction did not go well and I was in constant pain - I had already been to 2 plastic surgeons who in the middle of my treatment decided to not take my insurance any longer. I then search for a surgeon who would help me - 4 others would not listen to what my concerns were - Dr. Gartside did - she and her staff were completely empathetic and provided Superior care - THANK YOU!
I felt the surgeon did an excellent job of informing me of what to expect and what the results would be. Very honest and clear about all aspects including recovery.
Dr Gartside is pleasant, professional, and down to earth. She explains and describes problems and procedures so you know what to anticipate. I have referred my daughter to dr Gartside and both of us hope to have surgery this year performed by her but the cost is something we will need to wrap our heads around and figure out so we can proceed.
Dr. Gartside is very professional and sensitive to the woman's needs. She did an excellent job with the procedures and I trust that she exercised a high quality of due care in the preparation and execution of the surgery. Woman-operated and run. We know our bodies best! Not to mention the length of experience...
I had the procedure done twice since the first time didn't net any results. The second time wasn't much better and I still have sutures sticking out of my face.
The Doctor knowledge and experience, her honesty about what to expect and her professionalism
What a wonderful job this doctor and her staff did. It was an easy and calm experience . It has made a dramatic and helpful change in my life for which I am truly grateful. I am more self confident and can walk better. Thank you does not seem adequate. I am truly grateful for this experience.
Dr. gartside was very informative and gave me realistic expectations. She has great bedside manner. She enhanced my natural beauty and I left feeling beautiful!
Everything was great from the very first moment to the follow up appointment Able to do so much more and gave me so much confidence
I was very comfortable with Dr. Gartside, physically and mentally. I liked her knowledge, explanations, and manner.
Dr Gartside and her staff are extremely experienced and really gave me the confidence to go forward with the surgery. The confidence that looking better gave me was a bit unexpected as that was not the main reason I pursued the surgery.
Dr Gartside is great. She explained everything to me very honestly. I now have ample information to make my decision.
Being a medical professional myself it is very important that I received information without having to ask for it. That the physician and staff encourage questions, answer my questions. They were professional along with kind and compassionate.
Dr. Gartside is very friendly and informative. She is excellent at making sure you have realistic expectations. She takes her time and does not ever make you feel rushed.
Estoy completamente feliz con el procedimiento y la atención hacia mi del cirujano y su personal.me trataron muy bien todo el tiempo que necesite desde la consulta por primera vez hasta el final gracias. English Translation: I am completely happy with the procedure and the attention to my surgeon and his staff. I was treated very well the entire time I need from the consultation for the first time to the end thank you.
Some lines and creases in my lower face returned not long after surgery.
I was highly satisfied because Dr. Gartside made me feel comfortable, and she seems very honest. I also appreciate her working me into her schedule, considering I was a bit late for my original appointment.
The doctor made me feel comfortable and that she could help me.
Ease of getting appointments, surgeon was honest and approachable.
Dr. Gartside was very informative about the different procedures and provided realistic results expectations. I had read reviews regarding the practice before my consultation; there were a couple of negative reviews regarding the Dr.'s bedside manner", brusque attitude and overall comfort level with her so I was a little nervous to meet her- I can honestly say she was extremely pleasant, patient and informative regarding the results that could be expected. I did not feel rushed, she patiently answered my numerous questions and explained what to expect. The office staff was also very nice & welcoming, my only critique would be that the consultation process/orientation be explained in some detail- i.e. after meeting with the Dr., a patient coordinator will discuss pricing & scheduling options. I was a little confused but not a big deal.Dr. Gartside's pricing is extremely competitive and after visiting another Dr., I'm convinced Dr. Gartside is the best choice for me and am scheduling my procedure."
The practice seems to fit all of my needs presently and in the future. I am impressed with Dr. Gartside and plan to schedule my appointment within the next 30 days.
Christine and Dr. Gartside were amazing through the whole procedure. From explaining on what to expect, Payment before and after surgery. I'm more confident
Extremely friendly and listened to the concerns I had before and after my procedure
Dr. Gartside is very professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. She is thorough, considerate, and informative. I felt very comfortable considering this procedure. Her receptionist is also very informative and makes you feel right at home. I had an overall excellent experience.
I found everyone very friendly, easy to communicate with, and responsive to my questions/concerns. There was virtually no wait time for my appointment when I arrived and it was easy to schedule. Dr. Gartside has a very good bedside manner.
Surgeon and nurses were kind and helpful to my family and I. I felt comfortable and at ease with everyone I talked to. I have not had back, neck or even much knee pain since the surgery.
Everyone was patient and kind in helping me prepare for and recover from surgery. The scars are hardly visible!
Dr. Gartside is very transparent in sharing details about the procedure, what to expect, and what the healing process will be like. I was thoroughly impressed with her 'real-ness' in explaining the process and procedure. She made me feel extremely comfortable.
Doctor G was all about her patient! Took her time to listen, hear what I said, explain everything and put me at ease. I would recommend her to everyone I know!
Dr. Gartside and her staff were wonderful! Dr. Gartside is very professional and made my surgery/recovery very easy. All my questions/concerns regarding my procedure were addressed promptly. Dr. Gartside's staff was always pleasant and very helpful. I have and will continue to recommend New Image to my friends and family. Thank you for taking great care of me!
Dr. Gartside is so skilled and was so professional in talking with me, I feel bad about not rating her services more highly. She says she will work with me this year to fix the problems. But there were problems. She did three procedures: eyelid surgery, under-eye surgery to remove some bulging fat under one eye, and a neck lift. The third was entirely satisfactory. With the eyelids, they are quite uneven. She says she will even this out, which would be great. And I also have an odd little white scar (or something) near one tear duct.Although she showed me the fat removed (a photo), SOMETHING came back there. She said she will suction that out in a visit.At this point, two out of three surgeries have not been successful. Dr. Gartside said she will work with me to fix them.One final point: Preparation before the surgery left me quite unprepared for how long I would be in a great deal of pain. I think this could have been explained better. I do like and respect Dr. Gartside, and am optimistic about having the results work out.
I was told, when scheduling the consultation appointment, that I would receive an estimate the same day. That was not the case. I was lied to. Instead Dr. Gartside spent less than 5 minutes telling me to come back in 6-8 months. The fact that this cost me $75.00 is absurd. I wasted my time and money. To top it all off, Dr. Gartside was rude and inconsiderate.
I truly respect Dr. Garside and what she can do. My family members and I had done few procedure with her. My consultation was wonderful and very educational. I am still waiting to hear about the estimated cost or possible opening procedure time so I can seclude time and know if I can afford I and when to schedule time off from work. Thank you
Dr. Gartside was very good at explaining the procedure, the after is almost identical to pictures I had seen. I am very pleased with the results. I wish now I'd had done this sooner. The scars as not as bad as I had in my head, 2 months post op they are healing great! My neck and back pain were gone the next morning!! Yeah!!Suggestions: Recommend open button large, loose, front opening shirts for recovery time and surgical paper tape, prior to the surgery to be purchased and applied post surgery to reduce scarring . I had bought loose larger shirts to pull over my head, I didn't even think about not being able to lift my arms above my head with ease. I had to buy them post surgery. And address any problem suture sites that may appear odd to the patient during the healing process ahead of time, show pictures during recovery time so the patient knows what to see, I had to call and ask about them as I was worried about an infection. I still have the same area healing 2 mos. post surgery. The front desk coordinator wasn't very coordinator, she seemed to be very new.Overall, I am very happy.
The doctor was recommended by Dr. [name], for whom I have the very highest regard. I appreciated the doctor's down to earth approach and demeanor and the fact that she didn't try to persuade me to go ahead with the procedure. Rather, she explained that it was all my decision.
Everyone was professional and quick to respond. Excellent customer service.
I'm not sure how well my concerns and questions would be addressed.
Was provided with all the information I needed.
Dr. Gartside was wonderful! She's highly experienced, friendly, and informative. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience and practice. The front desk staff is also exceptional. I would highly recommend to anyone. I'm going back for another procedure soon!
I feel much better about my appearance when I look in the mirror. As a result, I am more confident. The doctor was very knowledgeable and highly skilled. I am very happy with the results because it looks natural but much improved. The staff was also professional and caring, as well as friendly.
Results are good (still healing and adjusting) and expect that things will continue to improve. Also appreciate Dr. Gartside and her assistant at the Reston Office. They are both helpful and professional. . Dr. Gartside is very skilled at her craft - she does not over promise and she provides realistic expectations. I trust she will create the best possible completely natural looking results. Her honesty, point of view and pragmatic bedside manner is also valued.
surgeon was very comprehensive and did not not put pressure on me to schedule the procedure,
The Dr was very up front and straight forward and listened to me.
The service was great. A very educated surgeon and polite patient coordinator/ receptionist.
What Dr. Gartside did with the breast reduction and liposuction surgery has been absolutely wonderful. She gave me my life back. I am back to my old physically active self before I gained all this weight. And she went further after my surgery recommending an excellent diet and wellness company who has done wonders with my weight. I have already lost 30 pounds and have ten more pounds to go. My friend also joined me on this diet. She has lost 25 pounds and is determined to reach her goal weight in a few months. My friend indicated that she had wished she had gone to Dr. Gartside instead of her surgeon for her mastectomy. Dr Gartside did a beautiful job in making my breasts smaller and natural looking. I was very happy with the results. I am now becoming more physically active being outdoors. I also have a new feminine wardrobe that I hadn't had in years. Thank you, Dr. Gartside for changing my life. I am eternally greatful to God and you. Dr. Gartside was really sincere and caring. The other male surgeons that I visited were too business like and very impatient with me. As a patient with a hearing impairment, she made an effort to make sure I understood everything she said. The nurses at the surgery center were wonderful and made sure I understood everything as well. They were comfortable around me. It was a very easy process. I am glad I waited a couple of years until I found the right surgeon who I was comfortable with. Even though Christine was very busy in the office at times, she always responded to my emails and followed up right away. After the surgery, I was concerned about possible infection. She followed up with Dr. Gartside who was attending a conference right away. The doctor did a good job assuring me that it was part of the natural process of healing. Her work with the breast reduction was impeccable. I would recommend Dr. Gartside in heartbeat.
The Dr. Was very nice and explained the procedures to me. I also feel very comfortable with the Dr.
I liked Dr. Gartside very much. She was informative, questions I asked were answered truthfully and I am going to schedule my appointment as soon as I am able financially. I was comfortable, did not feel rushed. I can't wait to schedule with Dr. Gartside. Thank you.
I liked the members of the practice. I was happy with the outcome.
I want to pursue ThermiVa to improve my incontinence - but I am waiting to hear if I am a candidate or not.
Procedures throughly explained, questions answered, concerns addressed.
The best thing is the outcome. I did not know what size I would have liked to be and the results are amazing. . Everything was explained well and written instructions were also given. Post-op appointments were set up in advance and everyone was very helpful and patient.
comfortable w/doctor. Explanation was great. Ready to have surgery
Previous patient. Great service.
Everyone was very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient while answering my many questions! Dr. Gartside was amazing! I am so happy with the results of my surgery.
Dr. Gartside addressed all of my questions and concerns in terms I could understand. She actually talked me out of having the procedure at this time. I appreciate her candor and suggestions on why I should wait. It was this concern for my best interest and not her wallet that confirmed I had the right surgeon!
The lift has really improved the look of my upper chest area. Excellent care and the results are fantastic. Very happy
It's a big surgery and serious. I wouldn't make a decision on this quickly and emotionally.
Dr Gartside was very thorough in her explanations of what the procedure would entail and had great bedside manner! I'm very happy with my breast reduction and especially with my perky breasts" for the first time in my life!"
very few appt times, no online scheduling, no price sheet online, no specifics on the procedure such as pre-op or post-op instructions.
Dr. Gartside was friendly and informative. I felt comfortable with her recommendations.
Dr. Gartside took the time to listen to everything I wanted. She was very informative with the information that she provided to me. Her secretary Christine was amazing as well, she scheduled my appointments fast and helped me with any questions that I had.
The Surgeon made you feel comfortable and covered all risk and steps of the procedure. I was highly satisfied and I am looking forward to the surgery and working with Dr Gartside!
Knowledgeability of Dr. Gartside
Dr was informed, shared honest opinion and did minor procedure at this spot(no wait or reschedule needed)
The office is conducted in a very professional manner. Doctor was very thorough, and I didn't feel rushed when speaking with her.
I was pleased with the approach to my questions, and the detail and quality of information provided.
Have had several surgeries by Dr. Gartside dating back almost 20 years. She cares and is exceptional at what she does.
being able to have an expander while still closing the site. Dr. Gartside was willing to listening and accept decisions I made that didn't line up with other medical providers. She encouraged me without pushing me to a certain decision. She was not left with a lot of skin to deal with but still work toward a satisfying result despite the removal of the areola she had constructed so well with the first surgery.
Doctor very knowledgeable. Does not cut corners. Professional. Explains procedures. Occasional specials make procedures more affordable.
As soon as Dr. Gartside cleared me for physical activity I joined a gym, got myself a personal trainer to get me started with weight workouts and started going to a Zumba class three days a week. I am eliminating certain foods from my diet to get in better shape and lose weight. I have more energy and a sense of being able to do things. Unfortunately, insurance companies wouldn't cover the surgery because I was overweight. Now that I'm not carrying around all that weight in my breasts I am feeling very positive about losing weight the right way, combined with workouts. It's a catch 22 as far as I'm concerned. I am more comfortable in everything I do and how I look. The surgery was done correctly and I am very happy with the way I look now. Dr. Gartside was there for me in every way. The follow up was important to make sure everything was healing properly.
I simply feel like I present a better self and I have higher confidence in my appearance. I feel beautiful. . Dr. Gartside addressed exactly what I had concerns about. She explained everything in detail and provided information on all options, even those that could be addressed by other providers. She helped me make an informed decision and never pressured me or tried to suggest anything that didn't relate to something I had expressed concern about. For everything I had done, nothing looked obviously a result of plastic surgery. Everything looked very natural and subtle. Dr. Gartside and her staff were always available and completely responsive to every question I had after the surgery. I felt very well cared for throughout the whole experience.
As a female, I felt very comfortable consulting with Dr. Gartside and the information she provided was very helpful in making my decision.
The surgeon was very thorough in explaining different options and honest about which would or would not have the impact I was looking for. She took a lot of time going over information, and I did not feel rushed at all. It was a very pleasant experience.
Met with Dr. Gartside. She was very thorough regarding the procedure as well as steps to take for best recovery. Fairly simple procedure so meeting was brief. Was a pleasure meeting Dr. Gartside and her staff.
Being able to fit into a bathing suite and being able to by a bra at a regular department store! Dr. Gartside is great. She makes you feel like a person and not a number. I never once felt like this was a cosmetic surgery, for me it was much more than that. She makes you feel very comfortable and listens to all of your questions and concerns.
Knowledgable doctor who is honest and educating me on realistic results.
Dr. Gartside was easy to talk to, gave realistic descriptions of expected results and neither she nor her staff tried to up-sell me into multiple procedures. I felt that they were interested in addressing my concerns and took into account my desired results when making recommendations and discussing potential issues. I was very comfortable with Dr. Gartside's demeanor and apparent expertise. Although the final estimate was a bit more than I was expecting, I believe they are very competitive prices and I was satisfied with the observed environment and staff - I would be comfortable coming back for future procedures. The entire staff was friendly and engaging. I appreciated the no pressure and thorough consultation.
I chose this practice because I know someone who had the same procedure done here & was very satisfied with the experience. After my visit, I was equally satisfied with the manner and explanations provided by the surgeon.
I am very happy I had my surgery completed. I am complimented frequently and my procedure was an asset to my overall figure. Dr. Gartside is extremely professional. Prior to my surgery, I consulted 2 times with her. She listened to me, answered my questions. She assisted on my ultimate decision, but she gave me education to make my own decision. I had my surgery completed at an off site surgical center. The center is beautiful and so relaxing. The staff is personable and makes you feel at home. They assist you prior and after the surgery to make you as comfortable as possible. The nurse even holds your hand prior to the surgery. Most of all, they walk you through what they are doing. I am so glad I had surgery with her. I will do my next procedure with her and recommend her professional attitude and skills.
I appreciated her stopping by when I woke up from the anesthesia. Never had a doctor do that before. Dr. Gartside is tops. She's personable and professional. Answers questions and explains procedures thoroughly. Her staff is awesome. I love the results of my eyelid surgery. Not only do I look better, but my field of vision increased without the extra skin hanging over my eyes. The results are very natural looking. Thank you!
I am happier with the way I look. Everything went well, painless and great results.
I can breath, I can sit up straight without pain in shoulders and back. Pain is gone from shoulders and back. . amazing. I had a wonderful experience with everything and I love it.
Because the surgeon make me feel comfortable and explained me very clear.
Angie was excellent and assisted me throughout the process. Despite me calling her several times seeking further assistance, Angier remained polite and extremely helpful. An absolute pleasure to deal with.Dr Gartside discussed all my options and informed me of the process prior to surgery and what to expect post surgery. Dr Gartside was very approachable and willing to answer all my questions. I feel a lot more relaxed knowing that I will be in Dr Gartside's care.
I am free from back and shoulder pain and feel so much more comfortable. I was well informed. Everyone was friendly, caring and attentive. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery.
I don't know yet if I have a friend or if I know someone that is planning to have a procedure in the future. But I would likely recommend Dr. Gartside's practice if I do. But it all depends to them too.
the consultation was good. I will have to let you know post-op
Dr. Gartside did my original breast surgery, and it went perfectly.
Will have to have one more visit to take off more fat.
I absolutely adore Dr Gartside . When I first met her She was very stern. the next time I came to see herIt was like I knew her forever . We high fives , hugged & laughed . It made me super relaxed and super confident on the work I was getting done . Love love love her
Dr. Gartside and her staff helped me figure out what to do to make sure that my insurance would cover my breast reduction to relieve my back pain. When documents did not get to their office, they let me know so I could follow up. Everyone was very respectful and positive.
Dr. Gartside was wonderful. She treated me with dignity and understood the procedure was more for how i will feel, rather than how i will look afterwards. The 1st surgeon I had consulted with seemed more of a spa type environment, and made me feel slightly uncomfortable and concentrated more on looks" - which is not why I wish to have the procedure done. I felt very comfortable and at ease with Dr. Gartside - as I have NEVER had any surgery or even stitches, she seemed more to be an actual Doctor, not just someone popping off the golf course for my consultation!"
I thought Dr. Gartside was very professional and knowledgeable and felt very confident that I would receive good care from her. There was a mistake made in my sceduled consult time on their end but I was seen anyway in a timely manor.
There was a straight forward approach that preserved my interest and dignity. I was afraid I'd break down and cry since I'm so self-conscious, but I was made to feel ok about my concerns.
The staff and doctor were quite personable and explained everything thoroughly; from paperwork to surgery. They stayed with me until after closing to take care of all of my needs.
Dr. Gartside is a skilled surgeon. At first I felt she did not go into enough detail or help calm my anxiousness. However, I realized that she always answered all of my questions. She treated the procedure as a common surgery for her, which gave me comfort. Her staff is polite and helpful.
Dr. Gartside was clear, concise and determined.
I was very happy. Already scheduled my procedure.
I have been wanting to have a Reduction for over 5 years. My husbands company is blocking it so I am paying out of pocket. Dr Gartside has worked with me during this whole 5 years to get this covered by insurance. Very excited to have the procedure done Dec 18th. YES
Awesome surgeon and person. She's just excellent along with her staff. The staff is made up of warm human beings who make a patient feel comfortable. More doctors should be like Dr. Garside. She's the real deal --great surgeon and great person. My scars are healing rapidly and I've received positive comments from everyone. No problems and she is easily available for post op support. I feel 10 years younger -- she did a great job. Also cared about the final cost for a patient.
Dr. Gartside and her staff were very helpful in determining whether to go forward with the specific procedure to address my sagging skin. I was provided with detailed information and all questions were answered clearly. I feel very comfortable in pursuing the treatment and would say that her staff was very responsive.
Dr Gartside has been my surgeon fpr years and I have always been satisfied with my experiences.
Aside from searching/looking for a certified surgeons, I have to make sure I am on the right team. I have read the reviews of Dr. Gartside and I liked them.. On the day of my consultation Dr. Gartside explains everything. She explained the pros and cons too. And also answer our questions.. Though we have lots of questions that we forgot to ask to her, her assistant or nurse Christine answers those too. Now, I am just excited for my surgery.. Hoping everything goes well.. I trust Dr. Gartside's team..
I am a returning patient. I previously had a surgical procedure 10 years ago and was very pleased with the results. The surgeon was very thorough and was upfront in explaining all options available.
Other plastic surgeons treated me as though they were selling me" on procedures and didn't let me ask questions as they came to me, and rushed me through the consultation--using up our appointment time on "their pitch" without lallowing adequate time for questions.Dr. Gartside treated me as a valued patient, taking a more personal interest in a "medical procedure"...not someone trying to increase their revenue by selling me on a service."
The outcome of the procedure was not what I hoped for/expected
I had worked with Dr. Gartside. I found her to be forthright and I appreciated her treating me as if I were a patient who needed everything explained, which I did. She made my husband, who was a wreck, comfortable with my Bilateral Mastectomy last year and made me very comfortable with the priceedure for putting in the implants.The anesthesiologist, with whom I had worked, was requested by me and was absolutely wonderful.The staff at the Woodburn surgery center were wonderful.All in all I had a wonderful experience.
I was listened to. All questions were fully answered. I was given several pricing options and not pressured to make a decision. When I came back with more questions, those were fully answered promptly. Very professional. Everything turned out exactly as it was described.
Use previously 2 other times for service
Dr. Gartside is awesome! She has explained to me clearly what to expect on my surgery and post op recovery. I would like to commend Christine for being an excellent & wonderful patient coordinator. She has always accommodated me even to a last minute request to visit Dr. Gartside and helped me process other requirements (like paperwork for short term disability, etc.). Angie is the same in the front desk, always welcoming me with a smile. The entire staff has shown me how much they care for their patients. Everyone is so helpful and so responsive. Thank YOU for your support!
Dr. Gartside was extremely personable and informative.
They addresses my concerns in a timely matter and worked me into their busy schedule. EveryoneDe me feel comfortable and listened to.
Dr. Roberta Gartside truly listens to patient concerns prior to surgery and thoroughly explains surgical process, recovery and anticipated outcome. I felt confident prior to surgery and had the best follow up care at Dr. Gartside's office. I recommend her highly to anyone considering plastic surgery.
The procedure and experience was much easier than expected - office visits, surgery, and post op. Only wish I had done it years ago!
Felt very relaxed with Dr. Garside and she seems very experienced. She spent a lot of time with me and explained the procedure. I identified with her more than with the other doctors that I visited. I appreciated that she seems like a down-to-earth person, yet is highly skilled and well respected among her peers.
Dr. Gartside is amazing both as a surgeon and with her bedside manner". She answered any question I had before and after the surgery. Her office staff is AMAZING--from the nurses, the receptionist and patient care girl. They are super friendly, always accommodating, and very knowledgeable. I just knew they were there if I needed anything. Great experience!"
It was just way too expensive for the procedure.
Surgeon spent a great deal of time with me during consult. Did not feel rushed or that I was a number. Explanations given were thorough and no question was too mundane. Surgeon gave the most informative and encouraging consult I have ever received. Will definitely be sched my procedure w this practice within 3 months. Office staff courteous and efficient. Wait time was negligible. Very positive experience from start to finish.
Overall everything went great. The entire process was quick and stress-free and since this was my first ever plastic surgery procedure, I was glad.
Staff was welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Wait time was reasonable but it would have been nice to be able to fill out the extensive paperwork ahead of time. Doctor was approachable but professional. She had her presentation down. I didn't feel pressured in any way, and everyone was great. I had done a LOT of research before deciding on Dr. Gartside. So I didn't really need the scheduler to inform me. The only problem I encountered at all was timing for the proceedure. I wanted to get the proceedure scheduled at an earlier date so I'd be less puffy and bruised when school starts but Dr. Gartside will be on vacation until past when I would have liked to have the surgery. Not her fault, she gets to go on vacation too--but when I made the consult appointment I asked about her availability in August and was given incorrect information. I made another commitment based on what I'd been told so when I went to schedule it had to be done a couple weeks later than I would like. That is the only complaint I might have but I am optomistic enough to believe it will work out and realistic enough to be understanding. If that is the only error that occurs I am good!It is more important to me to have a Doctor I believe is skilled, experienced, and I am confident about. It is also an important factor that the office staff is friendly and helpful. I have had other doctor's I adored with staff that sent everyone out in tears! You have put together a great team! I haven't had my proceedure yet but thus far I have been impressed.
Not a problem with the service. The problem is that no one seems to have very definitive information about the results of this type of procedure, and it is expensive. I don't mind paying for what I know I will get. I do mind paying for something that no one knows how it will turn out! It's a little sketchy for me at the moment.
Dr. Gartside and the entire staff is extremely personable and professional. They listened to my concerns and addressed each one. When I called the office with questions, I immediately got a response. I have recommended Dr. Gartside to my friends and will continue to do so.
Always friendly staff
Everyone was so friendly and inviting. It made getting the procedure a lot less stressful.
Dr Gartside, to me is One of the top 10 best plastic sergen in all the metropolitan Ã¡rea!!!
The surgeon was very knowledgeable and personable.
I got exactly what I wanted, despite my request being a bit unusual (very minimal augmentation). I was listened to always and no one tried to convince me otherwise. I was never rushed in the least, in fact to the contrary. The nurse was outstanding and very informative, patient, and helpful. It was an excellent experience and I got the exact result I wanted. I could not be more pleased.
Just wonderful friendly joyful environment where the patients emotions are top priority
All concerns were addressed very professionally, I am dieting to prepare before scheduling.
Dr GArtside did a procedure for me 11 years ago and I was extremely pleased with the results
The staff was very friendly ! From the front office , nurse & provider. Wendy was excellent ! The hospital < Inova surgery center staff was awesome as well. I have already referred others
Dr Gartside was very knowledgeable and we had a lot of confidence in her abilities, Wendy her nurse was fantastic. Always took a lot of time to make me comfortable and answer any and all questions for me.
Dr. Garside is very friendly and makes you feel at ease with procedure. She explains everything in detail and you do not feel rushed during your time there.
Both Dr. Gartside and nurse Wendy are very approachable. They answer questions I have, can get me on the schedule for follow ups and overall are great to deal with.
I felt the experience was very good, but the amount of my out-of-pocket responsibility, was much higher than I anticipated. Also, I did not realize that the surgery did NOT include the extra fat under my arms.
Dr. Gartside was considerate, thorough and lovely to deal with. Her staff was very professional and compassionate. I will highly recommend them.
I was overwhelmingly thrilled with Dr. Garside and her staff. To top it all off with the fabulousoutcome and if I had to do it all over again I go straight back to Dr. Garcia I've already referred a few people to her as well
I had breast surgery due to breast cancer. I felt very comfortable being in the hands of people who had apparently been through this process with many others. Thy were patient with me and answered all my concerns.
They were flawless from beginning to end. I love everyone in the office! Great experience:)
The doctors and staff are extremely helpful and completely honest and upfront. I am completely satisfied with my experience. Any problems encountered or questions I had were immediately addressed. I felt comfortable with everyone at the facility and couldn't be more satisfied with my results. I was recommended to this facility by another doctor and my general doctor has seen the results having glowing compliments.
Outstanding results. My life was positively impacted by the procedure.
Excellent communication and patient skills in providing detailed information pre-op and post-op. Wonderful bedside manner from physician and staff.
Having never had a cosmetic procedure done, the dr was extremely comforting and professional.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Gartside and her staff and feel every felt everyone made sure all of my questions were addressed.
I have used Dr. Gartside before and feel 100\% that she has my best interest in mind when consulting me on size, etc. I highly respect her and the entire staff.
I was very impressed by how welcoming and friendly everyone was, but especially the nurse - she really made sure she answered all my questions, and encouraged me to call her if I thought of any additional questions after my appointment. Seemed genuinely considerate and caring.
This is my second go-around with Dr. Gartside. From the top down, she has this most professional and thoughtful staff, from the gals at the front desk, to the back office and especially her nurse, Wendy. Dr. Gartside is a talented and benevolent practitioner. As a woman, I would only trust a woman to handle woman" surgery. Which is why I returned to her for a second procedure. The proof is in the pudding as they say. I developed a hematoma after surgery which was clearly explained to me up front as a possibility. No problem there, because the good doctor and her staff were there 24/7 to resolve the situation. On one occasion, Dr. Gartside went out of her way, and met me at her office on Sunday, after she had returned from vacation, to handle the problem. Wendy called me routinely to check up on me. I am completely healed. This is a excellent doctor, running a top notch practice, with an excellent support team. "
Dr. Gartside gives her full attention to her patients, which I really appreciate. I feel like she truly listens to your questions and concerns. She is a gifted surgeon who is warm and approachable. In addition, her staff is also extremely competent, warm and caring.
everything went well. With no problems or concerns
The office staff and the Doctor were professional and friendly. The doctor explained what could and could not be done which was reassuring. The scheduling was easy and quicker than I expected. Overall a great experience.
The staff especially Wendy were so helpful and friendly, Dr Gartdside was very thorough , honest and professional.
Christine was extremely helpful and very easy to work with and very accommodative .
This was my first surgery ever and I couldn't have felt more comfortable and prepared than I did after speaking with Dr. Gartside. She was so professional, so honest, and just all around informative. She answered all of my questions and gave information on things I didn't even think about asking. She was very personable and sweet. Her staff is amazing, I love Wendy, she is the sweetest. If you're looking for a Dr who knows what she's doing with an awesome staff to back her up then go see Dr Gartside, she'll take really good care of you. You will not leave disappointed.
I look many years younger and no longer have a turkey neck. And that was my reason for having the surgery.
Dr. Gartside was excellent at figuring out what I wanted and making suggestions for best results. She was very patient... continuing to work with me to make sure I understood everything required to accomplish my goal.
The Dr. and her staff was very respectful and informative. All off my questions and concerns were answered and addressed. I felt very comfortable during my consultation. I am waiting for approval from my insurance company.
Already completed the procedure. Did great. Just some allergy related problems after.
This is my second procedure with Dr. Gartside. The face that I will only see her is significant. She is a professional, thoughtful and I completely trust her. It helps to have a woman deal with uniquely women" issues! "
I was assured that the procedure would be good for me at my age and health level. Dr Gartside had done my breast reduction previously and I have been very satisfied.
I was highly satisfied. I must have hit the incorrect button.
I experienced no problems before, during or after. She's a great doctor!
I absolutely love Dr. Gartside and her nurse Wendy. They are the most friendliest, comforting, happy practice I've ever experienced. If I ever need another procedure I will definitely go back to them and I will recommend them to my friends. Thank you for making me feel good.
Staff members were very polite and ready to answer questions. The office is comfortable and not crowded. The doctor seemed knowledgeable and relaxed, with an appropriate sense of humor.
Dr. Gartside explained everything very thoroughly and always gave me an opportunity to ask questions. She told me I could ask anything I wanted; basically putting me at ease that there was no such thing as a stupid question." She is great sense of humor but is very professional."
I'd say overall I was highly satisfied with everyone. My only concerns are that I felt just a bit rushed during the appointment and some obvious things I should have remembered to ask I didn't, and the surgeon in my opinion should have probably offered information given my medical background whether I asked or not but did not. This was regarding my recent c section and my desire to get a tummy tuck. I think there should have been a conversation about how the two surgeries deal with one another. My other concern is cost. I haven't had a consult with anyone else, however given my initial research country wide and what I could find in the DC metro area, the prices which were quoted to me for the procedueres I am looking into were much higher than I was expecting. About 40\% higher than what I was expecting. And there was no mention of financing, so this is something that concerns me. Therefore, I'm now in a position where I'm going to have other consultations and see what I make of all of the information that I compile, and where I feel most comfortable to finally schedule this surgery.
I loved everything about Dr. Gartside, her precise explanations of what would happen and how and her willingness to answer all of my questions. Also I absolutely love her nurse Wendy. She is wonderful and really helped me decide which implants would work best for me!:)
surgeon and staff excellent
Appreciated the time and thoroughness of the explanation for this procedure along with establishing my expectations about pain and time out of commission .
Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and experienced staff!
Dr. Gartside not only explains the procedures well, but she and her staff give you clear written materials.I have been to Dr. Gartside for multiple procedures over the years and will continue to do so. She says what to expect and she has been correct each and every time. She is really an artist. Her facelift does not look overdone and I get a lot of compliments. I say I had a face lift and that she did it.In the past she has performed liposuction and scar revisions all with excellent results.
They were all friendly and patient with me, though I got grouchy when time was running out close to the time of the surgery. The doctor was pretty easy to communicated with.
Dr. Gartside and her staff were very supportive throughout the process. Dr. Gartside was straightforward and clearly explained the procedure upfront. I was prepared well for the operation and very happy with the result. I will definitely going back to her for other procedures in the future.
When I came to the office I felt at ease. I was comfortable which made me feel better. The person who I first ran into was very nice and made me feel at ease. Than I saw the Doctor and talked with her. She was very nice; a little intimidating but to the point and explained everything in detail; how the procedure works and was the end result would be like and what I would go through afterwards. I had questions and they were answered. The Nurse was not there that day so I did not get to talk to her. I talked to the surgical coordinator who went over what I would need to supply to her for the submission to the insurance company in hopes that the surgery would be covered. I did write back the next day to have the Nurse contact me but had not heard back. I was disappointed. I have questions for her. Overall experience was educational and comfortable. Thank you.
I had a wonderful experience. Everyone I encountered during my procedure pre/during/post were all organized and professional. The entire provider team took the time to make sure my procedure was safe and every precaution was taken due to an existing heart issue I have. All of my questions were answered and if I had any questions the provider/provider team made themselves available to answer them and did so in a very timely manner. Overall, I am thrilled with the results and the entire experience was stress free and extremely organized.
The surgeon was very thorough in her explanation of the procedure and took time to answer my questions. She was very straight forward and I appreciated that.
The nurse wendy was always willing to help and answer any small questions I had. Dr. Gartside was extremely easy to work with and made me comfortable through out the entire process.
After reviewing my intake information Dr. Gartside faced me square on and listened to my concerns about my problem. After I had a chance to express my thoughts/concerns/history, Dr. Gartside examined me. I was comfortable. After examination she explained the procedure quite well and asked me what questions I had. I felt very satisfied with the answers and explanations I was given.
Everyone made the experience as good as it could be. Answered all questions, they made me feel at ease. Very professional.
The entire process was informative and pleasant. I had a clear understanding of my procedure before surgery. The entire staff was friendly, patient and helpful.
Very thorough explanation of procedure.
The office staff and the Dr Gartside were wonderful. They were very caring and respectful.
Thought the surgeon was caring, answered questions that I asked, and seemed interested in me as a person. Took her time with the consult.
The staff at Dr Gartside's office and the Dr herself are great educators. They d helped walk me thru this process. I had a very positive experience.
Felt very comfortable with all the staff and the surgeon was very easy to talk to. The surgeon was very thorough and I had all the information I needed after the appointment in order to make an informed decision.
I have been searching for an extremely competent surgeon who participates with my insurance so I could have the breast reduction. I am delighted with the results and thrilled I was able to find an excellent surgeon with a wonderful, compassionate bedside manner. Her staff is just as compassionate and professional and truly care about their patients. I have highly recommended this practice to several friends.
Dr. Gartside and her staff are fantastic, my experience was so great.I'm so happy I had this procedure and Dr. Gartside as my surgeon.The communication and letting you know what to expect all the way was fantastic, and her work as a surgeon is Fantastic.I'm a very Happy customer!
Dr. Gartside was real" and didn't try to sugar coat the recovery time."
The result was what I had been told to expect.
Dr. Gartside and staff were absolutely professional, courteous, helpful, and efficient in preparing for and executing my procedure. I am very happy with the outcome--I feel like a new person in a lot of ways (for the better!).
The doctor was very thorough. She clearly explained the procedure and the expected outcome. She showed particular care and concern about my recent health issue and how it might affect how soon I could have the surgery. I appreciated her concern and advice. She is an awesome doctor. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Surgeon is excellent and gave common sense advice
Physician is a top plastic surgeon with great knowledge and bedside manner.Impeccable credentials.All questions were answered completely.Very comfortable during visit. Staff very friendly as well.
Dr Gartside seems to have a lot of experience. She is also very comfortable answering questions and was not at all trying to sell me the kitchen sink. She was everything I was looking for in a plastic surgeon.
I was quite pleased with the detail that the surgeon went into about the tummy tuck procedure. i have no remaining questions or concerns. Now the only consideration is coming up with the money for the procedure and determining if my schedule is ready for me to have recovery time.
Dr. Gartside is the consummate professional. Warm, empathetic and caring she provides comprehensive, clear explanations of options, procedures as well as pre and postoperative instructions. She is a terrific listener who goes to great lengths to make sure she understands your needs and wants so she can provide the exact service you request. Her respectful and considerate interactions rival her incredible surgical skills and talents I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dr. Gartside has a straight forward, 'no nonsense' approach that I really appreciate. She didn't t sugar coat what I needed to do to ensure my future tummy tuck procedure will be successful. Her honesty and directness is something that I look for in ALL my doctors. If they 'pussy foot' around, I drop them. She's a keeper!
Dr. Gartside and her nurse Wendy are absolutely wonderful. They're highly professional, kind, and caring. Dr. Gartside spent her time and did not rush explaining in details what to expect during and after surgery. She also used the latest computer technology to do that. I am also so grateful for Wendy. Her care for patients is above any words. It was also very easy to work with Myesa, who worked on all the financial details with me. I would absolutely highly recommend this practice to those who are thinking about doing plastic procedures.
Entire office staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The surgeon was very generous with her time, asking if I understood, had questions, concerns. She made sure I had all my questions and concerns were fully addressed. She had pictures and explained the procedure in terms appropriate to my knowledge. She took interest in me as a person, not just a potential procedure.
Surgeon very professional, friendly and obviously extremely capable!
Friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Result was better than I imagined it would be. Totally satisfied with entire practice and would/have recommend them to others. Extra kudos to the anesthesiologist. Once I told him my previous experiences with nausea before/after procedures, he took extra care and I experienced no nausea symptoms at all. Totally thrilled with entire experience.
This is a very professional and caring practice. I felt very much at ease with the doctor and staff and look forward to having my procedure done in the next two months.
All my questions were answered before i asked them.all my concerns were addressed
The reason why I''m so highly satisfied is because Dr. Gartside is a doctor who listens to you she cares about her patients. Thats how I felt. She tries to help her patients she really tries her best to do the right thing for them. I also felt that I''m in good hands because of Dr. Gartside experience i was not worried about the surgery at all. Dr. Gartside did the procedure exactly the way she explained it so i knew exactly what was expected. When it comes to her staff members they are truly amazing myesa and wendy gave me so much love and support i can''t even describe it. I really truly appreciate all their hard work i can''t even thank them enough. I will recommend Dr. Gartside to friends , family and my customers.Also i will rate her online as Nr.1 surgeon in virginia so people would go to her and get the same experience. I know there is no one out there that is good as Dr. Gartside.She is the best plastic surgeon!
The surgeon is professional and honest
I consulted Dr. Gartside for a breast reduction. I found the staff knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating. Dr. Gartside was professional and matter of fact about what I could expect and what the risks were. She patiently answered all of my questions. The staff took care of insurance approvals and there were no problems. Written pre op and post op instructions were provided to me and were clear and concise. Shocker...post surgery pathology found DCIS and tiny invasive cancer that had NOT shown up on my mammogram. Dr. Gartside delivered the news, made appointments with a breast cancer surgeon for me, went to the lab and examined the tissue herself to see where the cancer was located. She worked with my cancer surgeon in a second surgery to get a clean margin and then in a third surgery adjusted the healthy breast to match my post radiation breast. Dr. Gartside did it all right...she performed great surgery, held my hand when I needed it and I believe she saved my life.
I felt comfortable with the staff and the surgeon and felt the information was fair and honest.
Dr Gartside is an outstanding surgeon. She is highly skilled as well as the ability to put a patient at ease .Dr. Gartside and her staff are wonderful!
I was given a lot of information prior to surgery and it was very detailed on helping me prepare. Dr. Gartside was very informative and told me everything to expect during my recovery so I was not surprised by anything that happened. Everyone was very attentive and available to help.
Straightforward and highly informative discussion. Pulls no punches - exactly what I need - unvarnished truth. I learned a lot that I was previously unaware of. I will like go through two separate procedures for time and cost.
The office staff were very efficient and friendly. The nurse made a special effort to meet me at the McLean Office instead of the Reston Office, since I had started a new job and McLean was closer. The doctor was very efficient, gentle, informative. The result was excellent!
My left breast implant feels tight and uncomfortable and my right breast and area around it always hurts. They feel like I have a tight strap around my upper chest.
It was rassssuriing that the surgen speciialized in the surgery which I was having. i partiallly chose her because my frind worked in the office where the physician worked from. It seemed llike a good reference.For having such major surgery,it was surprising that only one follow up visit was needed. Overall, the process was good--not completely happy with the results. The twoo nipples do not match in size.
Everything was as I had hoped. Surgery went without a hitch and the outcome was actually better than I expected.
Always willing to take my calls and answer questions. Dr. Gartside displayed confidence and experience but also took the time to listen to me and answer questions. The male nurse the day of the surgery was fantastic. Patient and caring.
Dr. gartside was professional and delivered exactly what I expected
Dr Gartside and her Staff wet very nice and professional. I was immediately very comfortable with the Doctor and she explained to me what my surgery would entail. I had spoken with several surgeons contemplating surgery but never went through with scheduling surgery. With Dr. Gartside, I went home and spoke with my husband, and scheduled surgery the next day. I am extremely happy with my surgery, which has made me very happy with body, I was very self conscience about it before, but not now!
i loved the assistance, but I was unsure of what to do after the consultation was done. I didn't know what was going to happen after the consult and before the actual surgery
My internist and my gynecologist recommended her.
The staff and surgeon were all very friendly and helpful. I was given a lot of information about the procedure and all my questions were answered.The patient coordinator processed my paperwork with the insurance co, it was a easy process.I will be scheduling the procedure as soon as my insurance approves it next year with a new ins. plan in place.
I wasn't satisfied because of my experience with the office manager and the fact that I was never contacted again.
Any questions that I had were addressed with a professional manner. Any concerns after the surgery were listened to and handled. The staff at Dr. Gartside's office is very caring and they are quick to act on any concerns I may have had pre or post op.
Dr. Gartside was very knowledgeable and friendly. She provided me with numerous examples of the procedure and explained everything in detail. She made me feel confident in her abilities.
The Doctor and all of staff members were helpful, compassionate, professional, and helpful. Thank you.
Was basically seamless; in and out, no post surgical issues. This was a surgery for breast reduction and a lift to provide symetry as I had had a lumpectomy All is well :)
Dr Gartside is professional and approachable. She was very candid and open to any questions. Her staff were always available for questions, and they worked with your schedule in getting in for appointments and the surgery. I am so pleased I decided to get this done at this practice!
The staff was respectful and courteous. I did not feel like just a number, as I very much did with other practices. At no time did I feel as if I was bothersome to the staff or doctor, which I did experience with other plastic surgeons. Having a female surgeon was extremely important to me, as the male surgeons I've seen treated me as a case" and not as a person. They didn't care about me or why I was having the procedure or try in any way to make me feel comfortable or understand what to expect. It was simply a business to them and I one paying for a service in a sea of other customers. At this practice so far I've felt the exact opposite. Women are perhaps 70\% of a plastic surgeons clientele. They should be supported, listened to and valued : soft skills that are important to women (and maybe men do, too!) And that is exactly what I felt at this practice. "
Dr. Gartside seemed very knowledgeable and explained the procedure step by step and in detail. The visual was also helpful to me in understanding what the procedure entailed. Her manager, Myesa Munoz was very easy to talk with and very helpful in scheduling my appointment.
I was highly satisfied.
Competency and professional presentation by all.
Dr. Gartside is a wonderful and very experienced. She really knows what she is doing and listened to my concerns. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great experience overall.
Staff and surgeon were very friendly and knowledgeable and explained my options. The face lift procedure was explained in detail and with visual aids. The financial part was also explained in detail and was clear. Daughter's unexpected wedding expenses will delay my making an appt. til mid or late next year, tho. I will certainly be using Dr. Gartside.
I love Dr. Gartside and have recommended her to many friends
The procedure I am planning on was explained very thoroughly, both verbally and with images by the the surgeon.Much was done prior to appointment to minimize not being well informed..Appointment was easy to make. Surgeon was candid about procedure and answered all my questions/
Over all great experience, made me more relaxed about procedure and poss scaring.Thank you for all of your help and I will be in for my surgery as soon as my insurance allows :-)
Dr. Gartside provided very detailed processes and expectations that included images of the procedure and results.
Dr Gartside took her time to discuss my proceedures. Her office (waiting area, patients room and the office used for the business manager) was modern, clean and friendly. She uses state-of-the-art technology in the consultation to explain the proceedure and she had lots of examples for women of all types of body types and skin color. Front Office Manager is knowledgable, friendly and professional. She always assisted with the utmost professionalism during and after my initial visit. She was most effective addressing my insurance questions. She went above and beyond to find our that my insurance had changed the requirement/guidelines for breast reduction.
I waited in the waiting room for over 30 mins
Dr. Gartside and staff were extremely thorough and professional regarding my case. After reaching my goal weight I will contact the office to schedule the procedure.
Insurance approval issues were handled for me very quickly. Once I was approved and decided to go ahead with the surgery, I was able to have the surgery without a long wait time. Before surgery I felt I was fully informed of what to expect and what the risks were. Dr. Gartside made me feel very confident that I was in good hands and I never worried her ability to understand and give me what I wanted from the surgery.When complications arose Dr. Gartside helped me be confident that I would get through them. Dr. Gartside and the staff were sympathetic and helpful in contributing to my confidence that all would be well in time. The whole experience and outcome was so positive that even knowing I would have the complications I would have the procedure again.
Dr. Gartside and her staff were professional, friendly and positive. Dr. Gartside worked with me to make sure I had the best results possible after the double mastectomies. Her advise and experience helped guide me through the choices I was presented with during this process.
Overall Impressed by the staff's kindness and knowledge. I felt comfortable and very excited. I have other family members who have used this same doctor so I know I'm in good hands. The office manager was excellent in her options for me.
Not satisfied with final result. Paid a lot of money for unsatisfactory results. Scars are thick and arms are still larger than discussed, especially beyond elbows. Offer to fix under local never should have been presented as an option. Surgeon should have offers to fix under sedation given the size of the procedure. Patient went through the pain and emotional distress to have no visible results after attempted local fix.
Dr. Gartside was great. Breast cancer is bad enough, let alone the physical scars you end up with. Dr. Gartside helped me regain my self esteem and did a wonderful job on my reconstructive resurgery.
Dr. Gartside,Cares about each patient and what there needs are. She listened to what my complaint was and explained to details what she would do, and she did that and better. Dr. Gartside, loves what she does and her work and care for everyone shows it. Thank you Dr. Gartside for making me feel so much better not only physically but health wise. Thanks for being such a caring doctor, which its so hard to find. God Bless you!! For all the great work you do and make so many people so very happy.
Dr. Gartside and her staff were very knowledgable and friendly. I wanted a very natural look and am extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Gartside has a great demeanor and her laid back style is very much like mine. I appreciate her candidness and honesty. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in fantastic results.
Dr. Gartside is a very kind Surgeon. She has an outstanding Staff that cares about her patients.
I was very pleased with Doctor Gartside's expertise and ability to relate to me as a person and patient. My surgery was very successful. Her office staff were very considerate and efficient as were the hospital staff who met all my needs.
I have already referred a friend. Dr. Gartside made me feel so at ease during every interaction. Changing your body is scary and I am a very nervous person... But Dr. Gartside is so professional and caring that I just trusted she was going to do what was best for me. I am so happy with my results! I have a friend meeting with her this week.
Dr Gartside is a wonderful surgeon and a very caring professional. Her staff is very friendly and helpful. Absolutely no complaints!
The outcome was not as expected. The procedure was effective for the most part, but there are bumps on my face now which were not there before. In addition, I feel that the incision on one eye was different than the other eye, and lower than she initially explained.
During the consultation, the surgeon was very frank and open about the details of the procedure and recovery. Her attitude inspired confidence in a successful outcome. Very professional and thorough, Answered all my questions.
Dr. Gartside's professionalism and skill were apparent. The quality and care of her and her team made my procedures and recovery easy, as they addressed any questions or concerns timely and with patience. I would recommend her to anyone seeking cosmetic/reconstructive care and will likely use her again in the future.
Overall, I was thoroughly satisfied with both the results of my surgery and the procedure and experience. I recommended Dr. Gartside to my mother and friends and will return for any future work.
Dr. Gartside was personable and likable. My husband was with me and we were both impressed. I felt that I could ask any question, and it would not be viewed as silly, etc." Most of us wonder what others are thinking about us personally when a cosmetic procedure is being considered. The practice has made me feel totally at ease with all my decisions thus far."
Outcome from mini-tuck was greater then I anticipated. I believe Dr Gartside performed more then just removal of skin. I LOVE what she did!!!
Dr Gartside is an excellent surgeon and explains the surgery process that makes you comfortable in having the surgery done. Dr Gartsides office personnel were also very helpful and worked with you in getting insurance claims and certifications completed. I would recommend Dr Gartside very highly because being a woman of color I was worried about scarring, which was very little and not noticeable. A friend recommended Dr Gartside and I am so happy I had her as my surgeon. I just hope she does not retire any time soon.
Patient coordinator and surgeon extremely helpful and informative, and did not push for surgery!
DR. Gartside is an excellent surgeon, my scars after 4 months are fading very nicely. She answered my questions and returned my phone call on a Sunday within hours. I felt very comfortable with her and in her surgery skills. There was hardly any wait time in the office, which I loved. I would recommend her to anyone. My breasts looked great! Thank you, I am so glad I had it done!
Considering this surgery was connected with breast cancer surgery - it was a very positive experience! The doctor and her staff were wonderful - I have sent many friends there.
