Excellent visit today. Thank you

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Bartus is very nice but very straight forward. I'd say a typical demeanor for a surgeon. She seems very confident and competent and I don't see Drs for their personality so I really have no complaints. I could see how people might be put off though.

Dr. Bartus is amazing! Her expertise is phenomenal. She’s a professional through and through. Never once did she “sugar coat” my diagnosis, which I greatly appreciate. She did everything she said, and I am extremely thankful.
