“During my pregnancy and the delivery of my son I was under the care of Christian and he was amazing. He always took time to talk through next steps and he really got to know me and my partner, answering any questions we had honestly. I never felt rushed and I had total confidence in him to give me the best care and advice.“

    I consider myself very fortunate to have been referred to Mr Barnick in November. Before my first consultation, I was in a lot of pain and discomfort and very anxious. He put my mind at rest very quickly. I did need surgery and it was organised very swiftly and efficiently (his PA is very helpful). Six weeks on, I have completely recovered from the surgery and have none of my unpleasant original symptoms I can’t recommend Mr Barnick more highly. He is kind and caring and clearly a man at the top of his profession.

    My experience with Mr Barnick has been excellent; I have been under his care a few times now. He explains procedures thoroughly and takes time to answer questions, in a caring manner. I feel completely confident and assured that he is giving the best professional care and advice. I am fortunate to have found him. A pleasant character who puts you very much ease from the off.

    I have been under the care of Mr Barnick for 3 years now and suffer from stage 4 endometriosis which was unrecognized till I met Mr Barnick. He takes the time to listen and then explains clearly what is going on and needs to happen. I have never felt rushed during our consultations (one time I broke down in tears and he was very empathetic and allowed me the time to collect myself whilst calmly consoling me) and always leave having all the information and details I need. When I had my surgery, not only did he make me feel calm and relaxed (though i was ready to pass out from nerves before seeing him!) he also took the time to speak to my family and answer all their questions. He is very polite and respectful of his patients beliefs and way of thinking. I find that every advice and care he offers me, he takes in to account all aspects of me, and my condition. I know all medical advice should be tailored made to the patient but we all know this is not always done as it take time from the consultant, but this is where Mr Barnick is different.... he takes the time to truly understand - not just the medical (which he is brilliant at) but he takes a holistic view of the person. I guess for me he sees the human not the just the medical problem... I know there are a lot of women out there suffering from endometriosis and struggle to find the right consultant, it took me a long time for find the right care and want to share with others and highly recommend Mr Barnick for anyone needing specialist care.

    I saw Mr. Barnick for a consultation on a minor issue, & came away amazed at how fabulous not only he is , but his very lovely office staff, and nurses, who treated me as a friend. He is very easy to talk to, explains everything in detail, as well as discussing other related medical topics that are of relevance. In addition, and key to me, there was no rush to "move on", as I was able to ask any, & all of my questions. I only wish all my physicians were as fantastic as Mr. Barnick.
