- Samuel Bartholomew, MD, FACS

I received my M.D. from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. My surgical residency was completed at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and my plastic surgery residency at UC Davis Medical Center. I was a Research Associate at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France and the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at OHSU where I performed research on adult derived stem cells for tissue engineering. My research was presented at national and international meetings, and I am a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Testimonials

Excellent doctor and surgeon, compassionate, really listens to your issues. If there were a higher rating than 5 stars I would definitely give it.

Dr. Bartholomew guided me through a 2-month hospital stay at Providence that included 2 major surgeries by him. I firmly believe that if not for him I would have ended up with one, and perhaps two, amputations. His skill and professionalism gave me confidence, and his caring attitude was a true blessing!

Last week I had my second hand surgery (left) with Dr. Bartholomew. In 2010 he operated on my right. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with Dr. Bartholomew and his entire staff. Absolutely quality people and quality work. I'd recommend him for anything you need a keen eye and caring surgeon for. Thank you all for your outstanding service.
