What People Say About Dr. Christopher Barbieri, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Barbieri walked me through my treatment process patiently and clearly, explaining the options, helping me reason through the choices and encouraging me to seek a second opinion for my own peace of mind, which I did. He and his staff went out of there way to make my surgery and recovery as stress-free as possible, setting up a computer link-up for post-operative check-ins and a home nurse for post-operative care rather than asking me to commute from New Jersey in the immediate aftermath.

Dr. Barbieri is highly competent and compassionate specialist. During the period after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, I felt that Dr. Barbieri and his team provided me with the essential information and care I needed to make the difficult choices ahead. I chose Dr. Barbieri to perform my prostatectomy and am happy I did. The surgery and post-op care have been exemplary.

Dr. Barbieri is a "BRILLIANT" Doctor! He is thoughtful and thorough. We feel completely confident and at ease with Dr. Barbieri and his wonderful team--Jinhee Park NP and Mr. Tomas Nazario. It is one of the best departments in Cornell.

I found Dr. Barbieri through my own research after being diagnosed with relatively low-grade prostate cancer. I have been extremely happy with him and his team. They are helpful, friendly, on time, and responsive to emails and calls when necessary. He gave me good guidance on my treatment options and described possible side-effects accurately. The best part was I recovered quickly from the prostatectomy he performed, as he predicted, and the side effects were manageable and as described.

I have been seeing Dr. Barbieri for 2 years after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. When I needed a cystoscopy the conditions and staff were excellent. The entire staff including Jinhee Park and Tomas are also very professional and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Barbieri.

Trust is not a word that I normally use when discussing doctors. However, I couldn't have a conversation about Dr. Barbieri without mentioning it. He is the consummate professional beyond his superior technical skills. He's a fantastic listener and a straight shooter. He has a quiet confidence, and an amazing talent for putting a patient at ease. He should also be given credit for assembling a fantastic team, and establishing a culture that makes every single visit an amazing patient experience
