It was very important to me to find a surgeon that had a caring bed side manner. Prof Berney more than delivered. I was suffering from chronic cholecystitis and was needing my gallbladder removed. From consult to recovery I was extremely well looked after. Prof Berney is thorough,personable and very down to earth. This operation has changed my life and I can't thank him enough for giving me my health back.(Elizabeth Sirhanis)
Dear Proffessor Berney, thank you for your particular care, kindness and competency in your approach to me and the recent hernia surgery. I found out about you from friends in the medical fraternity - they say you are the preferred surgeons surgeon. At all times I felt safe and that you were not in any way desensitised from the patients experience - the most capable person complimented by lovely manners. The brief from you prior to the anaesthetic was very reassuring too. Thank you so much for making this go from initial bewilderment to absolute breeze.Your sincerelyFerial R.

Thank you Professor Berney! Excellent results! I am extremely grateful for your surgical expertise on my laparoscopic ventrical hernia surgery.Some pain and bruising for the first five days which I was assured was normal and would subside...and it absolutely did.After my follow up and just two months after surgery, I am fully recovered. Only three small scars on my abdomen which will fade over time.Additionally, I can't thank Bankstown Hospital enough! The nursing staff and Doctors were exceptionally helpful and I must admit I had a very good day!Thank you all so much!
I had emergency surgery on my gall bladder, Prof. Berney was great. Professional yet attentive and took the time to explain the whole procedure to me. It was a complicated surgery but Prof. Berney's after care helped me to recover fully. He is a great surgeon and I'd recommend him based in personal experience.
Professor Chris Bernay., is a very professional and knowledgeable Surgeon. He did amazing work on my husbands wound. His kindness and consideration and follow up towards my Husband’s after care were outstanding. We feel very lucky
Extremely happy with Prof Chris Berney. My 80 year old mother-in-law was in terrible pain and discomfort due to Diverticular disease. Professor performed a Laparoscopic Anterior Resection and excision of chronic colovaginal fistula. She had a ileostomy bag for a few months but then she had the procedure to have it reversed. She is very happy she can live a normal life now without the pain and discomfort.
Prof Berney is a very dedicated professional, who is extremely thorough and cares for his patients. He is detailed in his consultation process and makes you feel comfortable that you have all the facts, when considering surgery.
Prof Berney is personable, caring, understanding and very thorough. He listens and provides you with all he available options.I had a very complex surgery and was anxious about it. Prof Berney put my mind at ease. His bed side manner and after care is phenomenal. I’m extremely happy with the outcome and the care I was provided.I can’t recommend Prof Berney highly enough.
My 17 year old son was in so much pain from his hernia after seeing many doctors and specialist and not being comfortable with any of them, We met with Dr Berney after 2 consultations with Dr Berney, I knew my son was in great hands, with his years of knowledge, his compassion and reassurance, I did not hesitate in trusting Dr Berney to operate on my sons Hernia, it has been a little over 6 weeks since the operation and he is no longer in pain and feels like nothing had happened. Dr Berney your hands are like magic, and I cannot thank you enough.
Great advice, extremely thorough backed by a wealth of experience, putting your health and welfare as his number one priority.You are dealing with the steadiest of hands with Chris, very fortunate to of been under his care.
Professor Berney and his team are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Professor Berney is a doctor who brings medical knowledge and builds rapport with the patient to explain the condition and the treatment options available. Felt immediately confident in receiving expert medical care and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a specialist/surgeon.
I have been to the emergency department of hospital 6 times in the last 2 years with diverticulitis, the last time I went in I was blessed that Professor Berney was the surgeon on duty! He is the first one to offer me a solution to my problem and took the time to explain the option of key hole surgery to remove the infected section. He was extremely patient and answered my many questions and concerns. I had the operation within 6 weeks and it was a complete success. He is an extremely skilled and brilliant surgeon, but also very caring, kind and empathetic. I am extremely grateful and highly recommend him.
Professor Berney performed two surgeries on me. Both times I felt safe and confident that I was under his care. He is an excellent surgeon, extremely professional, polite and very friendly. Thank you Professor. I definitely recommend his services.
Professor Berney is an excellent surgeon. I was so sick before my surgery and now I am so well - it is like a miracle - I am a new person. Not only is he a brilliant surgeon, he really listens to his patient's and responds to their needs. I highly recommend him.
Prof. Berney was extremely thorough and explained all details involved. He is polite and made my procedure feel important to me and him alike. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of his services 👍🏻
I just had an operation done for my hernia with Prof. Chris Berney. He was very professional and great. I can recommend him to everyone. I had no pain after the surgery and he saw me afterwards twice to ensure everything was going okay.
I can not thank Prof Berney enough. From the first consultation to surgery and post-op i was well looked after. Waiting for my surgery I could hear the surgeons assisting Prof Berney talk amongst themselves of how highly regarded he was in his field of expertise, knowledge and experience. That was when I knew I was in good hands.
Dr. Berney is a consummate professional. I was referred to him for a hernia and underwent laparoscopic surgery shortly after. Dr. Berney took the time during my initial consultation and following surgery to answer every question I had, in detail. Nothing felt rushed or clinical. In fact, we spoke at length on a few occasions and his interest in both my recovery as well as continually improving this specialty field was evident. I don’t know the intricacies of surgery, but I believe his skill and technique is excellent. Notwithstanding what I expected post-op, I was up and moving the next day and good to go by the fourth. Most importantly, I haven’t felt any residual pain since. I’d highly recommend Dr. Berney.
Thank you for the excellent treatment by Proffessor Chris Berney and his staff Holly and Lauren . The caring treatment as a patient at the Waratah Private Hospital will always be remembered. Thank you to the Waratah Private Hospital medical team in my care while i was in hospital. I rate this standard as an excellent standard in hospitals, towards sick and injured patients.

His directions for a good recovery are clear and precise.I am very glad to have been referred to him

I always take second or even third opinion before I decide who will do the surgery for me. After my first appointment with Profesor Chris Berney I was certain this is the doctor which I can trust. He is very professional, he listen patiently, he does not rush, he answers descriptively the questions, shows alternatives and present results of his previous patients. He visited me twice after surgery with full explanation. After four weeks from my surgery I started full exercises, riding bicycle and work in the garden. No pain and no sign of my physical bulging hernia. I strongly recommend Professor Berney. We need more doctors like him. Very happy patient - Andrew N.
Prof Chris Berney is absolutely a professional. From the very first time I met him while I was in pain, through the operations to now that I am fully recovered he has dealt with me in caring and friendly professional manner. I consider myself fortunate and blessed that Prof Chris Berney was the doctor who treated my hernia.
I was referred to Dr Chris Berney in 2012 for an ongoing hiatus hernia problem, Dr Berney performed keyhole surgery on me at Prince of Wales hospital later that year, I was out of hospital early the next morning and back at work a few days later.I have been back to Dr Berney every three years since for gastroscopic and endoscopic testing. I would not go anywhere else, I have 100% confidence in Dr Berneys ability and skill, from the very first appointment you know you are in the right place, and I am sure that all of his patients would agree with me, I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Berney to anybody.
Prof Chris Bernay,Operated on and treated my husband Noel.He was professional, thorough, and had an excellent follow up method.Always very kind and patient with both myself and my Husband.I would highly recommend Prof Bernay.
A friend of mine who was under Professor Berney's care for his hernia repair recommended and I booked an appointment to see him. The minute I walked into his consulting room, I felt completely at ease. He explained all the options available to me and he answered all of my questions.
