Sarah Bartlett is a Tri-State girl at heart. After growing up in Northern Kentucky, she left the area to attend school in St. Louis and Louisville before making her way back to Cincinnati for her residency at University Hospital.
Bartlett spent her years in school studying to be a physician, a gynecologist to be exact. It was a passion for helping people that inspired her to follow this career path. “The field of gynecology is really unique,” she says. “I sometimes get to play the role of primary care physician, other times surgeon, and even therapist, frequently.”
Bartlett has the unique opportunity to be involved in patient’s lives at very vulnerable times, when she can help guide them with their health decisions and even relationship issues. “I have the privilege of sharing very intimate relationships with my patients, many of whom I see year after year and with whom I share life experiences,” says Bartlett.
Immediately after finishing her residency, Bartlett took a position with a large OB/GYN practice. She eventually found her way to Somi Javaid and Associates, a local women’s health practice that not only provides gynecological services, but also offers spa services to help women relax.
Bartlett had known Dr. Javaid for some time before she joined the practice, but it was right from the start that Bartlett knew the two shared the same philosophy on providing quality care for the whole woman.
“She started the practice just over one year ago and I joined her team in the spring of this year,” says Bartlett. “We are both board certified gynecologists and, as such, we perform all the typical services in gynecologic care but we also have our own interests and expertise, including sexual medicine, hormone therapy, and weight management counseling.”
Bartlett says that she also provides major surgeries including Robotic hysterectomies at several local hospitals and Dr. Javaid offers aesthetic services as part of her extra services.
“Our practice styles complement each other for the benefit of the patient experience,” adds Bartlett.
Bartlett adds that the practice prides itself on providing individualized care and takes the time to get to know each patient.
“We have only six chairs in the waiting room and that is by design,” she says. “We don’t want our patients to ever feel like just a number. Whether you are getting Botox or a pap smear, who wouldn’t want a soothing, spa-like environment?”
Bartlett says that while she can only treat a woman up until she diagnoses a pregnancy, that woman can receive their full care with her right up until pregnancy and for the remainder of their lives.
Since the medical field is always advancing, Bartlett says that the practice and itself as well as the services offered will also continue to evolve and stay on the cutting-edge. “The aesthetic services are growing, including our Fire and Ice body treatment for body sculpting,” says Bartlett. “We are also using vaginal laser treatments in the office to improve incontinence, prolapse, atrophic changes, and dryness. We both firmly believe in staying up on the medical science, practicing good medicine, and keeping up with the latest gynecologist advances, while also thinking outside the box when needed.”
