Tummy Tuck

Christine was/is very pleasant. Enjoyed talking with Dr. Gartside. Looking forward to my surgery...

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Gartside was very informative. Christine was excellent and very helpful. The office was very clean.

Injectable Fillers

I've been a patient of Dr Gartside for years and have been extremely satisfied with her "bedside manner" as well as the procedures that she has done. The office staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable as always a short wait time to see Dr Gardside. Office is always clean and neat.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gartside listened to what I wanted! She did my breast augmentation revision, and she gave me the breasts I asked for, ones a woman would want to wear, as opposed to the too-big, too-fake, too-animated bolt-ons a male doctor gave me in my initial augmentation. Plus, Dr. Gartside's price was more reasonable than the initial procedure, and she spent more time with me both before and after the procedure. Can't recommend her highly enough...I hope she keeps practicing forever! Everything was great. I never felt blown-off or like an inconvenience on the doctor's or staff's time. Thank y'all for a great experience.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Professional and friendly staff. No wait time. Knowledgeable doctor.

Breast Reduction

Starting with Dr. Gartside’s staff - they were amazing. Kind and very supportive. Dr. Gartside made me feel at ease and supported my decision. She worked closely with my insurance to make sure every I would go as planned. Excellent care before, during and after my procedure.

Breast Reduction

I really appreciated that staff at the office were easy to reach if I had any questions or concerns. I ended up having a very uneventful surgery and recovery. But I started the process really nervous and wanted to make sure I could ask questions as needed. Dr. G called my husband while I was still in recovery to update him. I really appreciated that. Christine and Leah were always helpful!

Face Lift

Doctor Gartside took her time and thoroughly explained everything.

Breast Augmentation

Very friendly staff, professional but warm manner, doctor very pleasant and made me feel comfortable and confident in her abilities.

Breast Augmentation

Very trained surgeon. Makes you feel comfortable while practically naked during consultation. Doesn't focus on just size of breast but also shape and body proportions and positioning.

Breast Augmentation

Read all kinds of reviews from patients from other doctors. Most had issues or complaints about the look or the feel of their implants. Mine were perfect on day 1. Dr. Gartside has been doing this surgery for years and is so amazing. The office assistant Christine is amazing and they both make sure you are completely comfortable through the whole process. I had some issues with pain medication not working and they made immediate changes to ensure I wasn’t in any pain. Highly recommend Dr. Gartside!! Love the way they look and wish I had done it years ago!! Everyone in the process was very friendly and makes you feel comfortable.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Quick in and out. Everyone is very friendly and efficient. It Works!


The short 20 minute procedure is painless and gives me results that last six months or longer. Before ThermiVa, I could not have intercourse without serious pain and sometimes even bleeding. After, it's like pre-menopause, no pain at all.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Gartside knows me well and always delivers the right amount of fillers so that I maintain a natural look without being overdone. No bruising and long lasting results.

Treatment / Procedure

Doctor and staff very professional and very thorough. Very caring.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Gartside was carefully professional in explaining and advising me about he procedure. When elective surgery interruption due to COVID-19 delayed my procedure, she was good at advising me about the likely delay and, when it was time to reschedule, helped accommodate a change in location as well as a COVID-19 test to facilitate the procedure. Following the procedure she and her staff were excellent in responding to questions and providing advice re recovery. My recovery is complete, and I am very happy with the results and Dr. Garside and her staff were excellent in making the surgery come off without major issues or concerns on my part. Good job! My eyes do not itch and bother me as they did perviously and others have commented on how much younger I look: not a goal of my desire for the surgery, but a welcome side effect.

Face Lift

All my questions were answered and Dr. Gartside explained the procedure and recovery very well. She is very easy to talk to and very reassuring.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gartside is always personable, knowledgeable and very patient.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gartside listened to my concerns and questions and was very helpful and informative. I felt that she was giving me honest answers and not just telling me what I wanted to hear. She put a comprehensive plan of action in place.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gartside talked with me about my options and what I was looking for proportionate to my weight/height. Christine from the front office is very nice and talks to you like a friend.
