West Columbia, SC |
dr. barnick was moms dr for years. she stopped seeing him in her 80s as he was dispensing oxycotin, hydrocodone & ativan for pain while disregarding her dependency. On oxycotin she hallucinated & was paranoid. we found another internist who weened her off over a 4 month period. for years our family mistrusted dr. barnick tho mom adored him. once weened she was angry to realize dr. barnick's negligence, irresponsibility & his primary goal to corporate climb.

Dr Barnick found my husband's Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm during a routine yearly physical examination. Needless to say this was monumental and words can not say what we feel for Dr. Barnick. He is a true blessing and we are beyond grateful to have such a fine physician.

He has been our primary care doctor for over 15 years. We like and trust him. If he can't fix what is wrong with us he refers us to someone who can. I lost the ability to walk a few years ago due to a sudden onset of an autoimmune disease - Sarcoidosis. He and his staff worked with me and w/other doctors got me walking again. Prognoses looks good. Years ago, Dr. Barnick convinced my father's surgeon to operate despite the surgeon's reluctance. He had 10 more good years.

He is arrogant, interrupts you while you are talking, short patient and forgetful. Will not get paper work done for medical needs of patients. Have to call his office all the time to get things done for patient. He is OCD with his over starched coats. I want to get rid of him so bad but needed a doctor for my family at the moment. Yes I want to transfer soon after finding a doctor soon.
