I had a very positive experience with Dr. Bartlett, both preoperatively and postoperatively. I would describe him as an empathetic professional and very talented surgeon.

Bad experience first visit explain what I was there for and paid no attention and went directly to something else, pushing me to have operation , second visit 2 weeks later , doing a Rectal exam kept me nude below the waist as he discussed other options trying to get me to decide if wanted me to do procure in office or in hospital , kept going on and on without telling me to get dressed , this went on for several minutes after the exam with me still nude below the waste, felt very Uncomfortable being in that position when I told him I will decide later he got up and walked out of the room leaving me there, I got dressed and left

(0 stars!) I completely agree with the person above “He’s one of the worst doctors I’ve had the misfortune of meeting!” He was prejudice and VERY rude. He did not care about what I wanted to do with my body and clearly didn’t read anything on my chart before meeting me. He was so unprofessional he left the room without saying anything! No goodbye, any last questions, not even a see u soon and he was supposed to do my surgery! I’ve never been treated this way by a health care profession! I’m shocked and disgusted!

This guy is a quack! All he wants to do is cut. I went in for a simple umbilical hernia that is healing and requested an ultrasound to monitor it and to avoid surgery. This guy refused to give me one. He only wanted to cut me open. He had no respect for what I feel is right for my body. A good doctor always works together with their patients not against what they feel is appropriate for their health.He's one of the worst doctors I've had the misfortune of meeting. Beware!
