Dr. Victor Barnica is a fantastic surgeon. He is a kind and humble man very willing to spend as much time with you as necessary. Don't let his age fool you he is incredibly knowledgeable. Honestly, he is the best doctor I have ever dealt with and I would consider him a dear friend.

He was able to solve my problem after having seen another doctor for 7 years with no results. Probem solved in less than a month. His bedside manor was great. I felt he really cared avbout my problem.

Dr. Barnica is a highly trained, excellent surgeon with a caring & compassionate bedside manner. He takes the time to answer questions and ensure that the patient understands their condition and treatment options. He is not afraid to tell a patient that they need to wait in order to determine the best course of action and is not quick to recommend surgery. He is an excellent addition to our medical community and the only one in his specialty. We are very fortunate to have him here!

I first met Dr. Barnica in the ER at MMC, he was very thorough, professional and polite. I left the hospital 48 hours later, minus a bad gall bladder, but knowing a Doctor I would return to without hesitation.

Dr. Barnica is an amazing doctor. From my very first appointment on he showed great knowledge, care, concern, professionalism and passion for his work. I never had a question go unanswered, yet I never felt like he was talking down to me either. His staff is excellent and his office is very neat and organized.
I've been seeing Dr. Barnica for several months now, and he's an amazing doctor. He's super trustworthy and professional. I definitely recommend him!

I recently went through a reversal on a colonoscopy. My fear and anxiety were short lived with Dr. Barnica's knowledge. He is (beyond-a-doubt) the most professional and caring Doctor I've personally ever had in my 49 years. He listens to any fears you might have and answers any questions professionally and honestly. His patience is very reassuring and comforting. He lets you know exactly what is expected and what might or might not happen. I could not have asked for a better Doctor. Thanks Dr B
