Roberta Gartside, MD Reviews (288)

Tummy Tuck

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.

Breast Reconstruction

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.

Face Lift

Dr Gartside is a skilled expert on facial surgery!! Everything heals up so well with the most minimal scars!!

Breast Reduction

Dr. Gartside made me feel so at ease with her manner and explaining the procedure from start to finish.I was highly impressed.

Breast Reduction

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!

Breast Reduction

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!

Arm Lift

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.

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.
