16/06/14 5 5 5 5 BEST surgeon in the world! What a kind, attentive, skillful, intelligent, talented man. I am so grateful that I did my research on RateMDs and chose Dr. Bartlett for my revision surgery! I had 3 previous nose jobs, the last 2 to correct the mistakes made in the first, and by the time I visited Dr. B for a consult I was left with an asymmetric, reduced to almost no cartilage nose, reminiscent of Michael Jackson. Dr. B was the first Dr. to really listen to my concerns and took care to deeply empathize and understand not just what I wanted aesthetically, but what I needed. He worked his magic using cartilage from inside my nose to completely reconstruct my deflated nostrils. My nose, is, BEAUTIFUL. It looks so natural, so pretty, more symmetric than a natural nose, and I can breathe through it for the first time in 7 years! I had the stitches removed today and despite the swelling I hope it stays just like this! This incredible man SAVED me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! ~N.S

16/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr.Bartlett performed Rhynoplasty just before the Christmas and I'm very pleased with the results. I always wanted to chance the way my nose looks since I was a teenager. I was working in the office in Yaletown where Dr. Bartlett used to perform surgeries and I asked stuff if they have seen results before and after and they said that results were amazing! They talked very highly about Dr. Bartlett's work , they said that he takes time with his work, he is detailed oriented and very professional. They said that if I ever decide to do Rhynoplasty, I should definitely go with Dr. Bartlett because Rhynoplasty is his specialty and simply he is the best! Couple of my friends did Rhynoplasty with Dr. Bartlett and results were incredible. Dr. Bartlett explains procedure in details, listens carefully what you would like to achieve and answers in a very professional manner. You feel very comfortable before and after surgery. I love my new beautiful nose! I can't thank enough Dr.Bartlett!

03/01/14 5 5 5 5 For the past 15 years, since a fall on an escalator, my nose has been slowly collapsing. Using cartridge from my right ear, Dr Bartlett made my nose look great (in fact better than it did 15 years ago) and he corrected it so I can breathe normally again. He said my surgery was challenging; I think the results are awesome! He’s a very approachable doctor, explains things really well, and I felt well taken cared of. I would recommend Dr Bartlett to anyone. Noreen (his receptionist) is wonderful!

29/11/13 5 5 5 5 When I made the decision for nasal surgery, I knew immediately that I would consult Dr. J. Andrew Bartlett. Dr. Bartlett and Noreen (medical office assistant) exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Bartlett performed a successful nasal septal repair and reconstruction at a local private surgery centre that is accredited by Accreditation Canada. I experienced warm, compassionate, personalized, and expert care throughout the process; minimal pain and swelling post op. were well controlled by over-the-counter pain medications and ice. From the moment of the initial consultation to today, 3 months post op., Dr. Bartlett and Noreen have modeled exemplary professional commitment to patient care. Both are clear communicators and Noreen is a gentle giant in the office. If you are considering nasal reconstruction surgery, I wholeheartedly recommend contacting Dr. J. Andrew Bartlett whose office is in centrally located in Richmond BC.  Respond

28/10/13 5 5 5 5 I specifically sought out a plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty & consistently receives positive reviews regarding this complex procedure. Having found none in AB, I looked to Vancouver & found Dr. J.A. Bartlett. I booked the surgery at our consultation meeting in August & had the procedure less than two weeks ago (mid October). I had a curved, over-projected nose & deviated septum. Although the surgery included breaking the right half of my nose & inserting several grafts, I experienced no post operative pain & only minimal bruising. Dr. Bartlett is clearly a master at rhinoplasty & septoplasty. My nose is showing great promise & I can hardly wait to see the full results over the coming months. Being in a different province may prove challenging for post-op visits but Dr. Bartlett is very accommodating & will do as many as possible via email, etc. His assistant, Noreen, is also wonderful to deal with. I appreciate it is early days but I couldn’t be happier!  Respond

I would recomend Dr. Bartlett to anyone considering rhinoplasty or otoplasty.  Respond

28/02/13 5 4 5 5 I saw Dr Bartlett for rhinoplasty last June, I could not be happier! He is extremely knowledgeable, polite, and keen on making sure you get what you want. He has been getting me to come back for steroid injections for the past 5 months (meaning he doesn't just abandon you after surgery). I got quotes from him and another surgeon prior to surgery and though he was more expensive I am so glad with him. My nose is incredible and looks so natural that no one knows! All anyone says to me is "you look amazing what have you been doing". He is always late, but its because he is so busy (which when I was considering him I took as a good sign).  Respond

07/01/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Bartlett did my closed Rhinoplasty procedure at Cambie Surgery Centre. The initial consultation and imaging at his office in Richmond was helpful and he answered all of my questions. The procedure only took about 45 minutes under local anesthetic. I had very little swelling and no bruising! I was back to work in a week and looked great. It's been about 10 months since the surgery and I'm really happy with the result. I wish I had done it years ago!I would highly recommend him for any nose surgery.  Respond

16/12/12 5 5 5 5 I have always been insecure with my nose. I booked a consultation with Dr. Bartlett last July, who made me feel completely comfortable about the procedure and knew exactly what I wanted. Although they were completely booked for the summer, his wonderful receptionist found a spot and booked me in for the following week. I had open rhinoplasty, and even from the moment the cast came off I was ecstatic with the results. I can't wait for a full year to pass so I can see the full results. I highly recommend Dr. Bartlett, he really cares about his clients and will go above and beyond to ensure you are satisfied with the procedure.  Respond

11/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bartlett is a very affable, patient, and adept individual. I went to him five months ago for rhinoplasty, and I am really happy with the results. During the initial consultation, Dr. Bartlett thoroughly explained how he could change the appearance of nose, and he was also happy to answer any questions that I had. The computer imaging was really helpful, but I find that my nose actually looks better than the pictures. I had the bump removed and the tip reduced, and the changes were subtle and natural. I also went to Dr. Bartlett over three years ago to have ArteSense injected into my smile lines and a scar. I am still very happy with the results, and I will definitely return for more ArteSense when I need to. I would highly recommend Dr. Bartlett to anyone who is interested in improving their appearance. I would also like to mention that Noreen (Dr. Bartlett’s office assistant) is kind, caring, helpful, and courteous; she is always a pleasure to deal with.  Respond

28/11/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bartlett performed my Rhinoplasty in June 2011. My case was challenging as my nose was not in a “virgin” state. I’d had surgery in 1994 by another surgeon to correct a deviated septum and improve the shape. The 1st surgery left me with a lot of scar tissue and a bulbous tip. Over the years my nostrils collapsed and my nose began to sag to one side. I was congested and my ability to breathe and sense of smell had deteriorated. Dr. Bartlett rebuilt the inside of my nose with cartilage grafts, reduced the scar tissue and reshaped the tip. When I asked, he said the degree of difficulty was about 9 out of 10. The result was better than we’d hoped for given the mess he had to deal with and I’m very happy. I can breathe, my sense of smell has returned and I finally have a nice feminine nose. Dr. Bartlett is an incredibly skilled surgeon with great bed-side manner. His knowledge, compassion and professionalism instilled my confidence right away. I highly recommend him.  Respond

02/03/12 5 5 5 5 I had rhinoplasty and chin augmentation performed by Dr. Bartlett last year (May 2011). I am about 10 months post-op and I am extremely pleased with the results. Having surgery was a big decision for me, so I did significant research to find the most qualified doctor in this field in my area. Both Dr. Bartlett and his assistant Noreen made this a positive experience. I was able to schedule appointments on short notice when needed because Dr. Bartlett makes himself available to his patients (rather than keeping "banker's hours" like some other doctors). Given how my surgery healed well, and the natural yet significantly improved profile achieved, speaks to Dr. Bartlett's skills and abilities as a cosmetic surgeon. Not only am I happy with the resulting look, but my ability to breath has greatly improved. To me, this demonstrates both Dr. Bartlett's technical and cosmetic skills. I found Dr. Bartlett easy to talk to and a good listener - VERY important attributes for a doctor.  Respond

20/12/11 5 4 5 5 I am so lucky to have chosen Dr. Bartlett to perform my rhinoplasty! I had several problems with my nose, I had a bump and I had broken it when I was little so it was very much off centre. The results of my actual nose job were way better than the initial “after” pictures Dr. Bartlett had shown me. My surgery went off without a hitch, the staff was very professional and reassuring and the receptionist in Dr. Bartlett’s’ actual office is very pleasant. I have to say that the healing process was rocky in that for the first few months my nose went through a lot of changes gradually in different areas. Now, it’s been more than a year since my surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results, it is so much better than I ever imagined it to be, and it looks like the nose I should’ve always had, it’s very natural and organic looking. I would highly recommend him to everyone!  Respond

06/11/11 5 5 5 5 I had an excellent experience with my rhinoplasty surgery done by Dr. Bartlett. My nose looks fantastic! The results are exactly what I'd hoped for and exactly what we discussed before the surgery. My nose looks very natural and not at all like a "nose job" nose. He's very knowledgeable and also very helpful. The appointments are very quick as he is obviously a very busy man but he always answers any questions that I have. I 100% recommend Dr. Bartlett if you are looking for a rhinoplasty surgery.  Respond

Many of my friends went under this procedure with different surgeons in this town, but unfortunately were not happy with their results. due to the fact that their nose looked unnatural, I decided to try a new doctor that none of them ever tried. I'm so happy with my decision because my nose looks perfectly natural, and I'm hearing a lot of compliments from my family and friends. Overall, if your a fastidious individual and looking for an impeccable result, I highly recommend you to go ahead with this doctor. At the end, you will love the result.  Respond

10/08/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Bartlett performed Rhinoplasty on me one year ago this week. I could not be happier with the results. It was less painful than I anticipated and my only regret is waiting so long to do it! Within 2 weeks, you could barely tell I'd had surgery! My nose continued to look better and better in the year following surgery. Dr. Bartlett's follow-up has been excellent - as kind to me now as before I decided to have the surgery. The results were even better than the simulated pictures I was given during the consultation!! The results are so natural - the nose I'd always wished for! Thank you to Dr. Bartlett (and to Noreen) for making this such a good experience! I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!  Respond

28/06/11 5 5 5 5 I just had a consultation with Dr. Bartlett and he was very charming and professional. He was very thorough and candid about what he could actually do with my nose, what the ensuing results would be, and some realistic pre/post op expectations. His primary concern is for my nose to look like the one that I was born with...key word is natural looking. He is also a great listener, he took my concerns seriously and he helpfully answered all my questions politely. He gave me four "before" and "after" images to take home so that I could discuss the procedure with my husband and basically to mull things over. It was a great experience to be able to see a digital new and improved image of me and Dr. Bartlett really put me at ease with his competence and kindness. Thank you Dr. Bartlett for your wonderful bedside manners and graciousness! 3 cheers for you!  Respond

11/05/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Bartlett is amazing! From the moment I went for my first consultation I knew he would be a great doctor. He took his time, was very informative, and even encouraged extra questions. He and his secretary were also very helpful with booking extra appointments for me and answering extra questions as the surgery date came closer and I became more nervous. On 18/04/11 I had a rhinoplasty procedure done, I came out of the OR with minimal swelling and never received any facial bruising. When I was hesitant of taking the nasal packing out myself, he squeezed me in to his busy day and removed it for me. It is now almost a month since my procedure and I couldn't be happier. I have had other cosmetic procedures in the past, with other doctors, on different parts of my body and I must say the compassion, unpretentiousness, and general friendliness shown by Dr. Bartlett is much greater then any other surgeon I've worked with. I would go back to him in a second!  Respond

16/03/11 5 4 5 5 I am just over a week into my recovery after a rhinoplasty with Dr. Bartlett. I could not be happier with the experience and Dr. Bartlett. He is very knowledgeable and supportive in making decisions. He talks you through everything and will not promise what he cannot deliver. The receptionist is extremely friendly also. He works out of the Cambie Surgery Center for surgeries and from the moment I walked in they made me feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Bartlett checks on you before and after surgery to make sure you're ok. With the splint off now, he did an amazing job! he even went above and beyond to give me the best outcome. I really like that you go back every few months so he can make sure it is healing perfectly. Yes, he is more expensive but he is the best and you should not "shop around" for your face, that's how you end up going to him after anyway to have it fixed! I would highly recommended him.

09/10/10 4 5 5 5 I'd like to highly recommend Dr. Bartlett to anyone in need of an otoplasty (ear) procedure. Dr. Bartlett did an impeccable job. Now my story: I had assymetrical ears which prompted me to seek otoplasty. I found another surgeon who was a little cheaper and seemed very confident that he could achieve symmetry. Ultimately, after 2 botched procedures, he failed and my ears were actually worse (visible damage to the front of the ear, less symmetry, painful healing, scarring, embarrassment etc.). The other surgeon turned me away and said there was no hope. I came to Dr. Bartlett who, after examining my ears, stated he would have "no problem" fixing them. They are now fixed. They are symmetrical and I couldn't ask for anything more. Virtually no pain during the healing process. I am posting this in the hope that others can avoid another painful story like mine. Noreen was very helpful as well.

07/03/10 2 2 2 1 I hesitated to write this review... but I think something needs to be said. I did a type of Asian bleph on the inner corners called epicanthoplasty. He does not know or understand what this is at all. Normally the inner corners will be longer and sharper, but instead I got some sort of eyelid bleph on the inner half of my eye. The incisions he made come almost 1/2 of my eye when they are supposed to be in the inner corners. I think he tried to alter my crease to be parallel. I did not ask for this. The wound was closed and attached so poorly, with so much tension, that it caused the stretched scar tissue. It made my eyes unnatural rounded when it is suppose to elongate. I am extremely distraught, sad, and angry. My eyes are the most important thing to me, and he ruined it. I have not left the house since the surgery. I will be going to Korea soon to see if a doctor there can fix the mess he caused and give me a normal eye shape. What did I do to deserve this? A nightmare.
