Ratings for Dr. Philip Barnsley
So my surgery is done now and I'm still in the healing process but I'm too anxious to wait to write a review. I remember reading a comment on here that Dr.Barnsley is a hidden gem.. and I have to say he truly is. I recently had a breast augmentation and I can't explain my happiness with every aspect of the journey. I'm the most nervous person when it comes to anything medical so this was really hard for me. I was literally creaking out on surgery day. I didn't think I could do it! But the staff there and Dr.Barnsley made me feel as comfortable as possible and reassured me that I am going to be okay. Everything went so good and not to mention I love love love my results. He did exactly what I wanted. Ive shared my results on some of my breast augmentation groups and the responses I'm getting just shows what an amazing surgeon he is. He truly did an amazing job and I highly, highly recommend him to anyone. He really is a hidden gem. :D
All around great experience! I had a spot of possible skin cancer and they were able to see me in a timely fashion. The secretary is extreamly nice and was really helpful through the whole process. Dr Barnsley was great to deal with. He didn't waste any time and removed the spot and had me on my way. I highly recommend Dr. Barnsley and his team!!
Doctor is great, The secretary is completely lacking in any communication skills, and is rude. Sits on her personal phone and can be heard chatting with friends instead of answering the phone at work. Patients left standing at the counter waiting, while she chats on the phone...then she rolls her eyes at clients if they complain.
I saw dr.Barnsley for my first consultation just a few days ago for a breast augmentation. I've never had any surgeries before, let alone cosmetic surgery. It's something I've wanted for a veryyy long time and I finally mustered up the courage to do it. Most of the feedback from friends has been "why would you do that?" Or "you don't need to do that. You're so small, it won't suit you." So honestly, I was expecting to hear some what of these responses from a doctor too, just because that's what I'm used to hearing! I saw dr.barnsley, told him how I felt and what I wanted and he was nothing but supportive in my needs. He gives off an instant feeling of trust and caring that he wants to get you to where YOU want to be. I felt 100% supported in the decision I made for myself. He is extremely knowledgable and easy to talk to. I'm extremely happy that I picked him to take me through this step in my life. I feel I'm in great hands. His receptionist is also extremely friendly, bubbly, outgoing and very professional. You can tell she knows what she's doing and takes her job seriously but still is herself. She makes a nervous situation in the waiting room a very great experience. I booked my surgery for September. Although he had openings for just a month away, I simply can't get time off work during the summer. I'm sure I'll be nothing but happy come surgery time. what a lovely experience!
In 2009 I cut my hand and severed multiple tendons while fishing in kitimat bc where I lived. There were no amenities to fix my hand up there so I flew to Nanaimo When arrived in Nanaimo I went to nrgh where I was met at the front door of the er by this doctor. I was in surgery within the hour. Dr Barnsley was fantastic. My hand was fixed and within 3 months I was back to active duty in law enforcement. I cannot say enough good things about this man and his staff. Getting hurt is. Ever fun, but this doctor made it efficient,and comfortable. Thank you.
5 stars. I have had several scar reversions done by Dr.Barnsley and each has turned out amazing. He is professional, compassionate, and caring. He is very knowledgable and won't suggest something he doesn't believe will work. Takes the time to discuss the procedure and give you a realistic outcome. Very friendly and easy to talk to, I've never had a bad experience. I travel 1.5 hours (each way) to see Dr.Barnsley and each visit is worth it! I recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Barnsley is an amazing surgeon and a great person all around. I had breast reduction surgery that was covered by MSP due to back pain and issues with my back. I am not overweight and live a healthy lifestyle. I have had back issues for over 10 years. It had gotten to the point where it was starting to effect my work and day to day life from all the pain I was in including regular tension headaches. I had thought about this procedure for a number of years but being young many physicians' had told me it would be best to wait until after I had children. I still have not had children and don't see this happening anytime soon. I did not want more years of being in pain. My pain was legitimate but I was also very concerned with my appearance at the end of it. In my initial consultation Dr. Barnsley was completely empathetic to my pain concerns and did not make me feel vain or unreasonable for being concerned with my appearance at all even though it was a medical reason. He completely understood where I was coming from and made me feel as though I could completely trust him. I made a list of questions before I went in which he appreciated and answered each question with out rushing me along. He did not make me feel like I was making a mistake by doing this before having children at all and put those fears to rest. I was very scared and nervous for my surgery. My second consultation before the surgery we discussed all my concerns again and he assured me I would be happy with the results. On the day of the surgery I was terrified for several reasons he sat with me and talked to me and put me at ease he really went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. After surgery my pain and healing process was exactly as he described it to be, it was not bad at all! I was also extremely happy with the appearance and sizing. He absolutely honoured how I wanted to feel about the appearance was always very honest with what to expect with both negatives and positives. The outcome all around was amazing and my expectations did not even come close to how I felt physically my back felt brand new and I was beyond happy with my appearance. It has been a few months since the surgery and I am still extremely happy with the results. His receptionist was also always professional and very friendly. She is very busy but always gets to you in a kind and timely matter. I can honestly say I am so thankful to Dr. Barnsley he truly changed my life in a very positive way. All of the nurses and everyone who helped me were also very kind and I always felt safe and well taken care of. Thank you so much to you and your staff!
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.
