We love hearing back from people who have used our services, and we regularly receive thank you cards and messages.

Here are a few of the comments we have received from former patients:

I want to mention the excellent attention I received from Chris Barnicks team, both before, during and after the operation he and Alison and others who I do not know performed what might have been a run of the mill proceedure for them but was quite frankly amazing for me, I have minimal scarring and the pain and discomfort has gone . Chris Barnick is clearly a surgeon who excels at his work, obviously loves what he does, and this is also apparent in his relationship with his patients – he took time to discuss my options, and I was encouraged to make my own choice.

Just to say it was a pleasure meeting you this morning and thank you so much for answering the million questions I threw your way! By far the best appointment I’ve had since my endometriosis diagnosis.

Thanks

Alison thank you so much. If it hadn’t been for your help and advice, I would have never been able to go through with pregnancy number 2. I was able to enjoy the 9month’s fully this time without the major fears and panic attacks my first pregnancy was riddled with. I actually enjoyed the delivery and holding my newborn for the first time and now the 13 September 2011 will hold a very special place in our hearts for the rest of our lives. Sofia Alexandra is a gorgeous, healthy and determined 6month old baby girl. You were professional, albeit very serious, throughout our visits and chats, eloquent and informative without too much ‘detail’ in our later sessions and on the delivery date, you and your team, your visits to our room, your words of comfort and support and the very organised and efficient way that you all worked together, made the entire experience unique and unforgettable. The care during our stay and after care was also second to none.

2 children are indeed my limit but I have recommended you to close colleagues and friends and will continue to do so warmly in the future.

With our thanks once again,

The Hipsey Santana Family from Hertfordshire

Dear Chris,

We can’t thank you enough for helping to bring our little man into this world! Your guidance and support throughout the entire pregnancy was brilliant. I’ve been ‘singing your praises’ to anyone who will listen….and of course recommending you to friends as well. We’ll look forward to doing it all again with number 2 (not anytime too soon though). Thanks again doc!

Love, Richard, Jen and Max

We travelled a lot in different countries and saw many doctors while pregnant. Alison is the most welcoming and caring doctor that we have had through my pregnancy

Many thanks!

My experience with Doctor Barnick has been an excellent one. He delivered by Caesarean both my children. All midwives following my operation commented on my scar how it was in excellent condition and following both births I was back on my feet if not the next day (for my son) shortly afterwards (for my daughter). As a sensitive person, what I liked the most about Dct Barnick was his sensibility, logic and concern for the you the mother to be. I do feel that he did everything to make my experience as comfortable and positive as possible. I have and will highly recommend Doctor Barnick to my friends.

I have known Dr. Alison Wright since January 2010 when I started to visit her in the Portland Hospital for diagnosis and medical checks related to my first pregnancy. Ms Alison is a very knowledgeable, kind, responsive, caring and thoughtful doctor. She always showed great care to me during my regular visits and provided competent, complete and comprehensive responses to all my questions and needs. I enjoyed being Ms Alison’s patient and am very thankful to her for the help and support. I had an excellent experience having my baby with Ms Alison at the Portland Hospital. Many thanks to Ms Alison once more.

Sophie and I wanted to say thank you for all that you did for us. The care you gave us prior, during and after Leo’s birth was exemplary. We felt confident that your advice was expert and that the best interests for Mum and baby were your top priority at all times. Given that Sophie’s circumstances at full term prevented a natural birth, we had to put our hopes and fears into your hands – you did not let us down. The tone in the operating theatre was set by The King himself when seconds before Leo’s first breath, Elvis sang to us: “It’s now or never!” Thankfully you and Leo took his words to heart and a beautiful new life joined our family.

The delivery went exactly as planned, no hiccups, no drama, no surprises – a tribute to your skill and that of your team. We have, and will continue to recommend you to anyone considering going down the path we chose. Please also pass on our gratitude to the lovely Lene, who was always a joy to be around, super efficient and one of life’s lovely people.

JJ, Sophie, Jacques & Leo

I am so pleased to tell you that the filler injections seem to have worked. I have tested it out on trampolines, running races down the beach with my son and numerous other vigorous activities which were somewhat reduced if not impossible before! I cant thank you enough – if i were there I would definitely feel an impulse to give you a huge hug – it has changed my life! There is the odd occasional drop or two, but I can live with it!

So many, many thanks

Christian’s care and attention throughout my pregnancy was hugely reassuring. Christian guided my husband and me through fertility-related issues as well as a pregnancy complicated by placenta previa. His commitment was truly remarkable – not only was he available to respond to my many concerns, he actually encouraged me to call his mobile whenever I was worried! The surgery went very smoothly – he took less than 20 minutes to safely deliver our son. As a welcome bonus, my recovery time was minimal and my scar (which looks more like a scratch) is so low that it was barely visible after 6 weeks. His expertise and calm character are a perfect combination.

Sending you good thoughts, the women of London need you! Thank you so much!

I also want to mention the excellent attention I received from Chris Barnicks team, both before, during and after the operation he and Ozlem and others who I do not know performed what might have been a run of the mill proceedure for them but was quite frankly amazing for me, I have minimal scarring and the pain and discomfort has gone . Chris Barnick is clearly a surgeon who excels at his work, obviously loves what he does, and this is also apparent in his relationship with his patients – he took time to discuss my options, and I was encouraged to make my own choice.

With many thanks,

Dear Dr Chris. Just wanted to convey my thanks for the kindness you have shown to my wife. She is so brave and determined to be a mum but also needs regular boosts of confidence. Your manner seems to really suit her and I hope one day you may deliver us a baby! Chris, you are a credit to your profession and we have the utmost respect and trust in you as well as always enjoying your company. Warmest regards
