His love of science and desire to be in the service industry helping people is what drove Brian Drake, M.D., to medicine. "I chose OB-GYN because of the joy of bringing life into this world," he says. "My own children mean so much to me. I really enjoy the breadth of the field - from primary care to birth, and minimally-invasive surgery."
In his practice, Dr. Drake emphasizes personalized care. "It's important for me to listen to my patients and to partner with them in their medical care," he said. "I take into account the patient's concerns and provide recommendations that I would want for my own family."
After earning his medical degree from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Dr. Drake completed his internship and residency in OB-GYN at Akron General Medical Center. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
Dr. Drake was born in Washington State and raised in Oregon. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four children, two of which are studying health care. Dr. Drake's hobbies include reading, hiking and fly fishing.
