BOTOX® Cosmetic

Overall experience

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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

Tummy Tuck

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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Great care and awesome results!

Breast Reduction

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

Face Lift

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.

Mommy Makeover

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.

Breast Reduction

I was made to feel comfortable about an otherwise uncomfortable topic (to me).

Tummy Tuck

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.

Neck Lift

I liked Dr G still trying to decide

Breast Reduction

The single best thing is the results! . I am very happy with my results! The staff were all helpful and nice.

Ear Surgery

All the staff were friendly, helpful, informative, professional, and punctual

Arm Lift

Very good in all the information and seem to want the best for my procedure

Fat Transfer

I was very satisfied

Brow Lift

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!

Breast Implant Revision

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.
