Lynn, MA |
Dr Richard Bartlett proposed procedures which he was very inexperienced with. Hindsight is 20/20 and I paid the price for believing in a confused and careless man driven by greed.

I underwent a rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Bartlett. Although I was EXTREMELY nervous for this surgery, Dr. Bartlett confidently assured me he could deliver the small and precise refinements of my nose. That said, all went extremely smoothly and I am veryyyy happy with the results. It has only been a couple months and I love my nose more and more every day!

I had a breast reduction back in 2014 and Doctor Bartlett was AMAZING! First off every nurse in the hospital raved about how perfect he was and also be stayed longer in my surgery to make sure my breasts were perfect ( he worked on me for an extra hour)! Along with Dr Bartlett, his team out front were amazin! Everyone was so helpful and I want to go back for lipo!

Very professional and did a great job with the surgery.
Previous reconstructive rhinoplasty patient of Dr. Bartlett's and I had an emergency come up several years later on a holiday weekend. Called his office, they gave his cell phone number, so I called it and told him what had happened. He returned my call 2 hours later and explained that my nose would most likely be fine the way I had just broken it, but that he wanted to take a look when I had returned from vacation. So grateful that he accommodated me the way that he did!

After taking time off from work and stoping all medications doctor Bartlett decided to cancel my surgery because the front desk complained that the tone of my voice was irritated after I found out that the office had lost the copy of my insurance card 3 times .I would strongly recommend anyone to find a doctor that really cares about patients because doctor Bartlett doesn't and he also doesn't
