Very satisfied. Results were exactly as described they'd be by Dr. Gartside.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr Gartside and her team are always great to work with.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Gartside is very knowledgeable about the treatments she provides. As this was a repeat Botox treatment she asked how the previous treatment results were prior to this treatment to make sure I was getting consistent results. I appreciate that she checks in like this to make sure her patients are happy. Those personal touches are what keep me coming back! No touch ups were needed, she addressed what I needed with an efficient manner.

Eyelid Surgery

Convenient location, in office procedure, friendly staff, healed great, and price was good. Highly recommended.

Breast Reduction

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.

Breast Lift

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.

Injectable Fillers

Comfortable environment, friendly physician and staff. Fuller cheeks

Breast Reduction

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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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

Eyelid Surgery

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

Breast Reduction

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

Injectable Fillers

Met expectations.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Gartside is extremely honest and direct as to what would benefit me.

Tummy Tuck

I really liked those of the staff I had contact with. The doctor was precise and to the point. I trust her completely.

Breast Reduction

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.
