David M. Barrere, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.
Dr. Barrere is a Board Certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Having received his medical degree from The Ohio State University in 1994, he subsequently completed a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Bethesda Hospitals, Inc., in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served as Chief resident from 1997 to 1998 and was awarded the Richard G. Bryant Award as Resident of the Year in 1998. Since the completion of residency, Dr. Barrere has been in private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio. He currently holds the position of Assistant Professor of Ob/Gyn at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. In 2007, and again in 2011, he was given the award for Excellence in Surgical Teaching by the graduating Chief Residents from the University of Cincinnati Ob/Gyn Department.
In 2008, Dr. Barrere was asked to write an article for the United Brachial Plexus Network, Inc. The article titled In Search of the Brass Ring appeared in the organization's publication UBPN Outreach. The article is a review of some of the causes of shoulder dystocia, the major cause of a neurologic injury called brachial plexus injury. It also give the perspective of dealing with a shoulder dystocia from a physician's point-of-view.
An excerpt: "All my experiences aside, whether it be from residency or private practice, it was my own two Brass Rings, Graeme and Ashleigh, that have made me a better physician. Being a father helps me to remain focused. Because of them, I keep my eyes on the prize. The Brass Ring - not glory or accolades - a healthy mom and healthy baby."
Dr. Barrere is an active member of The American Mensa Society, The Ohio State University Alumni Association and President's Club, The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, Cincinnati Academy of Medicine, Ohio State Medical Association, and The Christ Hospital Clinical Collaborative Committee for Obstetrics.
Dr. Barrere also is a volunteer team manager for Anderson Township Little League and presently serves on the Board of Directors as Safety Officer for the League.
While his practice is in general Ob/Gyn, he does have particular interests in minimally invasive hysterectomy, urogynecology, management of abnormal Pap smears, and high-risk obstetrics in preventing premature delivery. His son, Graeme, was born on May 13, 2003, nearly 12 weeks prematurely. His first-hand experience in dealing with a premature infant adds valuable insight to the long-term risks and consequences of prematurity. With the help of our knowledge today, his daughter, Ashleigh, was delivered at term on Dr. Barrere's birthday - June 24, 2007.
Dr. Barrere was the first "Ob/Gyn Site Guide" for About.com, an on-line research and information site, and has consulted on several on-line and print publications, such as Pregnancy Magazine, ePregnancy Magazine, ePregnancy.com, and iParenting.com. He also serves as a consultant to a local insurance company and has appeared as a professional witness in medical malpractice cases.
Practice Philosophy - "All patients deserve the same level of care that I would expect for my wife, sister, and close friends. My goal is to deliver that care, from adolescence to the 'golden years'. Being in a solo practice setting, my patients see only me and interact closely with my small staff. They get that personal touch. As new developments in technology come available, I will continue to upgrade and improve my practice for the benefit of those patients I treat.
Preparing For Your Office Visit
While we are providers for the majority of insurance plans, we recommend that you contact the company personally to see if we are "in network". Also, it is necessary that you bring a current copy of your insurance card with you for billing purposes as well as your insurance co-pay. To save on time in the waiting room, you may download the office forms to the right and fill them out prior to your visit.
Completing the patient information forms prior to your visit will markedly speed up your registration process. All new patients and established patients with an information change (insurance provider change, address change, etc.) will need to complete these forms.
