I saw Dr. P for Juvederm injections in my face, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only did he listen to my thoughts and concerns, but had some suggestions that I hadn't even thought of. He is very reassuring and very skilled, and I'm so pleased with the results. The staff is great too!

Dr. P is very skilled and attentive, explains everything very well, and his staff are so kind. It's nice to have that communication. You can't possibly go through this kind of procedure without worry and question and they put me at ease. I am SO happy with the results!...I would definatly reccomend him.

Dr. Partington and his team are not only professionals, but they care. I felt comfortable from the start - they were available to answer all of my questions, address my concerns and ensured the procedure met my expectations. I felt i was in good hands, and can't speak highly enough about my experience.

Incredible bedside manner; Dr. P. spends a significant amount of time understanding who you are and what you are looking for. He supporting my decision to have a breast lift without implants, was always super supportive and positive, so encouraging! The staff is amazing, love them all!

Breast Implant Revision
I saw Dr. Partington in consult and he was just amazing. A full hour with just me and him. He explained everything so well and with such detail. He never said one bad thing about my previous surgeon which really solidified the fact that he is so respectuful and kind. He did my breast augmentation and I LOVE THEM. I look about 15 pounds lighter they are more full on top and I have had so many compliments!!! The staff is AMAZING and so nice. Anytime I had a question it was answered with detail and respect and noone ever seemed annoyed or irritated. I loved everyone in the office. It is truly a pleasure to go into the office. They are really like a family and I'm actually going to miss going into the office for my post op appointments!!!

Throughout my entire process,I felt like I was the only patient. I was treated with empathy, care and respect. Dr. Partington is a very skilled surgeon and and very concerned with the welfare of his patients. He listens, he answered all my questions and I would absolutely see him for another procedure if I needed one.

I always felt very cared for by my doctor. i always felt he was going to do a careful job and that he cared about the result as much as i did. I also really liked his support staff, although his office staff left something to be desired...although again, I think after receiving feedback they are making changes to that situation so that their patients are made to feel special from start to finish. (I only gave 4 stars for payment because they dont take amex :) )

They made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions prior to the surgery. Dr. P was the plastic surgeon that conducted the surgery and I would recommend him to everyone, he is great at what he does, and has great beside manner. The office staff and doctors are really great and if you are thinking about doing something like this, Sono Bello is a great place to go.

Dr. Partington genuinely CARES about his patients and it shows throughout the process. He listened to ME and what I wanted, partnered with me in my care and then DELIVERED exactly what I asked for. I had a SIGNIFICANT amount of tissue removed (almost eight pounds total) and I didn't even have to have drains afterwards. (yay!)

Dr. Partington was the best doctor I'd ever had the privilege of working with. He naturally made you feel comfortable. Once he began explaining the procedure and what he felt the outcome would be I knew he had the skills I was looking for. I am now 1 week post op from my second procedure and I now feel my self esteem returning and my clothes are finally fitting me as well. If I could give him 10 stars I would. I will be recommending him to my friends for years to come. He is a master at his art!

Thank goodness I found Realself because it lead me to Dr. Partington. The office is easy to find, gorgeously modern, Jill (front desk) & Mandy (Patient Coordinator) are both very sweet….but honestly that is not what made me chose this surgeon. The very second we met Dr. Partington he made us feel at ease, he was the first surgeon I consulted with that REALLY listened to what I wanted my body to look like. He took the time to fully understand that I wasn’t trying to make my breasts look 18 years old again, and he understood that I was ok that my stomach wouldn’t be “perfect” again. In just our first meeting my husband and I felt that he had integrity and fantastic listening skills, and unlike the 4 other surgeons I consulted with, he didn’t rush us out of the room. Dr. Partington took the time to educate us on my options, and even physically showed us on my body what no other surgeon took the time to do or say. He also complimented my pre-surgery body, which may seem like no big deal to him or anyone else….but to a woman who struggles with body image it felt really nice to have a surgeon take the time to compliment my pre-surgery breasts and waistline. We left his office feeling confident that he was undoubtedly “the one”. He is incredibly professional, has a charming personality and seems to really care about his patients. My husband even joked that he might have to find something for Dr. Partington to operate on…Haha!

From a family friend. I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Partington and his staff. Everyone is extremely friendly, very professional, and they answered all my questions. My goal was to have a proportionate chest size for my body and that's exactly what I received. I felt very comfortable and safe in their hands the day of the procedure. I recommend Dr. Partington to anyone who is looking to enhance their body.

I was given the name of Dr. Partington from my Medical Provider, Regance BlueCross BlueShield. I struggle to write this review for the words of gratitude and endless appreciation for Dr. Partington and team will never suffice to just how incredible this experience has been. I am 23 years old and just had a breast reduction. To begin this process I was beyond just scared, I had to really evaluate what I was doing, why I was doing it, would my family approve, and how could I even begin to wrap my head around plastics at such a young age. The questions, concerns, and nerves, were endless. This process began my senior year in college, I was 20 years old. As soon as I walked into the office I was swept off my feet, my mother (an RN) was unbelievably supportive and came with me for the first consultation. Dr. Partington was so impressive with his consultation my mother said, "he is your doctor, he will do this procedure." Dr. Partington within 20 minutes of speaking to me put all my nerves, my concerns, my everything, at ease. I was doing this procedure for me, he said, and that's what has stayed with me through these years. This procedure was and is for me. I have struggled with back problems as well as the simple frustrations of buying clothing and simply trying to be proportional. Dr. Partington let me express my thoughts and aspirations and simply understood me. Since the consultation in 2011, I just had the surgery early February 2013. The time gap was my decision. I graduated college then was moved out to CA. I was and am so impressed and connected with Dr. Partington that while living in CA I still went to him in WA to have such a personal procedure performed. The team behind Dr. Partington also went through so much for me. Paperwork after paperwork, after phone call, the team never once gave up on me or my needs. The team is so friendly, helpful, and so genuine, they alone made this two year trek seem flawless. Sitting here at the tail end of my recovery I am in tears with pure joy and sincere gratitude to Dr. Partington and team. The procedure went perfectly, the recovery was great, and the healing scars leave me speechless, for they are so beautiful and for lack of better words are flawless. The work Dr. Partington did is so picture perfect, I can hardly believe it. I love my new look and my breasts no longer define me, they simply are proportional to me, enabling me to continue to grow physically and mentally as a young woman, who has always been confident, but now I am truly confident inside and out. And for that I owe it to Dr. Partington and team. The work they put fourth and the end result, I could never express just how thankful I am.

I saw Dr. Partington and Sarah his nurse for my recent Breast Augmentation. Coming from the cosmetic medical field, I have high standards and they exceeded them. I send my patients there, which is why I feel comfortable there. Thanks Dr. P!

I went to Dr. Partington's office for a consult after having a couple awful consults with other doctors-telling me i should get silicone when I wanted saline-saying I should go bigger than I was comfortable with...etc. Dr.Partington and his staff are INCREDIBLE! They went above and beyond at the consult, answering all my questions, measuring every angle, helping me try on implants to get the exact size I was looking for. I was very nervous about the procedure and they all made me feel calm and treated me like a person rather than just a patient. During my healing phase, I probably called the office a dozen times with the simplest questions and they never made me feel silly for asking and always answered them thoroughly. One of the nurses, Sarah, even called me on her day off to answer a question of mine. I absolutely love my outcome and would reccomend Dr. Partington to anyone who is looking to have work done.

My friend Kellie recommended Dr. Partington and his practice and I am so grateful she did. I am excited to come back. I love this office staff, it is so wonderful. I have small lips and came in for Juvederm to make them look youthful. I am 45 and the wrinkles are starting to show. I had Botox to soften my wrinkles on my Forhead and around my eyes. I look at least 10 years younger. I loved Sarah the RN. She is AMAZING and such a sweetheart. She has been following up with me to see how I am and I really enjoy having a knowlegeble staff and very caring one at that. I highly recommend them!!!

Dr. Partington spent a lot of time answering all my questions. He provided multiple options. He is very charismatic & charming but that is not the reason I chose him. I selected him based on his honesty/integrity, surgical skill based on ratings of his peers, and proven outcomes esp.with people who have lost a lot of weight and have excess skin. His staff of nurses & office manager where respectful & responsive. I never felt judged which is important to me. After care follow up exceeded my expectations. It's important to know that your surgeon has the skill and exp. doing this surgery. Many surgeons may attempt to talk you into replacing with new implants, if this is the only option they provide run. Dr. Partington provided multiple options, spent a lot time answering all my questions. He respected my choice.

I recently had a breast aumentation done and have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Partington and everyone of his staff members. They were so patient and kind to me. Dr. Partington spend a long time talking with my husband and I during our consultation and answered all of our questions and concerns. I never felt pressured or hurried to make a decision. During the weeks leading up to my surgery his nurse would call to check on me and see how I was doing and making sure that I didn't have anymore questions. The surgery was a breeze and they kept me very comfortable. I am so happy with the results. They far exceeded my expectations!!!

I have had a few other elective surgeries over the years, with other Dr's. And while 2 of my 3 experience were 'good' (no complaints).. Never have I felt so much compassion and genuine kindness, as a patient. All of the things that mattered to me, leading up to surgery; prompt appointment times, friendly staff, thorough consult, honesty regarding wether or not revision would work/was necessary, Dr P and staff delivered! Pre op, surgery day, and post op couldn't have gone more smoothly! I am a person who writes yelp reviews almost every time I go out to eat, or have any type of service done, I am picky and can be hard to please. I can say, whole heartedly, that there is not ONE thing I would have changed, or wished went differently during this entire experience! 5 STARS ALL ACROSS THE BOARD!

They did an excellent job! Dr. Partington consulted with me to determine the optimal treatment for me, then Sarah performed the needed injections. All the staff made me feel right at home, so confident I was trusting my face to highly professional and experienced people. I had very little bruising which cleared up in a few days. I am very happy with the results!

Professional friends: I just returned from my last follow up visit to Dr. Partingtons office/surg. center. I've been in healthcare for 20 plus years myself and truly appreciate quality care. I had a scar revision, but had unbelievable aftercare. Every time I was in the office, it was like visiting fiends who are healthcare PRO'S. You'll feel at ease, and all procedures are performed on site with utmost safety/care. Top organization from Dr. Partington down to reception. Chad F. Hecht

I first met Dr. Partington when I was in the E.R. and needed a Plastic Surgeon to stitch up my forehead. Dr. Partington came to the E.R. and we hit it off instantly. When I decided to have the surgery, I called Dr. Partington. I had worked with a different Plastic Surgeon in the past, but I was excited to switch to Dr. partington. Dr. Partington has a wonderful bedside manner and really puts you at ease with his wealth of knowledge and experience. His office staff was very helpful and very approachable. The office was easy to get to and I felt very comfortable there.
