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.
