Robert Barrett, MD, FACOG, talks about his passions as an OB/GYN, his practice philosophy, and more.

“I come from a humble background. Both of my parents were high school dropouts and encouraged me to believe anything was possible. At age seven, an accident made a life-altering impact on me. After being kicked by a horse, the injuries were so severe that I spent an entire month in a children’s hospital. I was in awe of the doctors, nurses, and medical staff that took care of me. It was then that I knew someday I would dedicate my life to working in the healthcare field.

Many years later while in medical school, I decided to go into obstetrics after delivering a baby for the first time. I was so enamored by the whole birth experience that I knew I had to become an OB/GYN.”
