Mole Removal

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.

Ear Surgery

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]

Tummy Tuck

I was satisfied.

Breast Reduction

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.

Scar Revision

I think that the experience is as good as it can be.

Mole Removal

Very pleased with my experience!

Breast Reduction

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.

Breast Augmentation

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!

Breast Reduction

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.

Injectable Fillers

Feel listened to! Also have been treated by Dr. Gartside previously and trust her.

Tummy Tuck

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!

Tummy Tuck

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.

Breast Augmentation

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...

Face Lift

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.

Breast Reduction

The Doctor knowledge and experience, her honesty about what to expect and her professionalism
