Ratings for Dr. Philip Barnsley
Dr. Barnsley, has been kind, considerate and knowledgeable. His humour has helped guide me through a difficult, to my mind, breast reconstruction after cancer. I was unconvinced of how to approach this and he has been wonderful. His office staff is professional and respectful. The new office is very pleasing and comfortable. I am grateful for his bedside manner. Thank you Dr. Barnsley!!
I had to have my 30 year old breast implants removed which was hard for me to come to terms with. Dr Barnsley was insensitive saying to me "at least you won't look like a boy". After the surgery in the recovery room he handed me a RX for Tramadol and I said to him I can't take that because it interacts with another RX that I take. Instead of rewriting a different one he said "talk to the pharmacist. I went home without filling the RX because I didn't need to talk to Pharmacist I already knew I could not take it and 4 hours later I ended up in emergency dept. in excruciating pain. He has no idea how painful surgery can be and needs a lesson in empathy. I do not recommend this Dr.
I recently had breast reconstruction and augmentation surgery from Dr. Barnsley and I was overwhelmingly thrilled with the experience and results. Dr. Barnsley is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, with a kind and genuine disposition. I could not highly recommend him enough for plastic and reconstructive surgery. Very much looking forward to working with him again in the future.
Dr. Barnsley recently removed a spot from my cheek. I was so nervous and anxious - not knowing what to expect, how long healing time would be or how things would overall workout. He put all of my fears to rest the moment my husband and I met with him for my consultaion. He was so understanding and took all the time necessary to explain the process, healing time & what exactly to expect. When we left the office, we felt nothing short of relief (I had 3 weeks previously hopped off the operating table 'almost' under the knife, of another Nanaimo Plastic Surgeon) and was so happy that this experience was so much better for me. The day of the surgery was a breeze. We talked during the entire procedure...which was a great distraction for me. He described wound aftercare in order to make healing time the shortest. Two weeks post surgery, my one inch scar is barely visible. I went for my followup today and we 'hi-fived' my recovery process. Dr. Barnsley removed my fears and made this rather difficult situation (for me) into an experience that, although I don't wish to repeat, a pleasant one. If I ever require plastic surgery again, he would be the ONLY one I would go to. I cannot recommend him and/or his practice more. Also, kudos to his lovely receptionist. She too was very helpful, calming & comforting. The icing on the cake is the office atmosphere. Sparkling clean, comfortable, modern and classy. 5* rating in every way :)
This Dr. is very self centered. Has no empathy. He made an error during my surgery which he did not do on purpose, but he did not offer to fix it until my family doctor brought it up. It was a very painful mistake, he must be worried what other doctor think of him because he does not give our painkillers no matter how much pain you are in from his mistakes. He needs to grow up and act like an adult. :(
I highly recommend Dr Barnsley and his wonderful staff. I had several questions about my pending procedures. Dr Barnsley took time to answer all my questions usng his extensive knowledge infusing the process with empathy and humour. Dr Barnsley was professional, respectful and attentive to my needs throughout the whole process. His staff is super supportive and friendly and always very prompt in returning emails or phone calls. The office was clean and very private. Best of all I look and feel great!
Dr Barnsley is a ignorant , immature prick and doesn't deserve his title. I've never seen a doctor who disgusted me so much. I suggest everyone take their business elsewhere I know I sure will.
