Beverly Hills OB/GYN Barry J. Brock Faces Lawsuits by Several Women for Sexual Misconduct in a Medical Setting

Overview

OB/GYN Barry J. Brock, M.D., is facing multiple lawsuits by female patients who say he subjected them to sexual exploitation and abuse. The recent court filings show a pattern of misconduct and abuse that spans the course of Brock’s 30-year-long career at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Beverly Hills OB/GYN Clinic, and UCLA.

Barry J. Brock’s Medical Background

Dr. Brock spent over 30 years in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. He received a medical degree, and completed his residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Brock also has been a member of the Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery Center and the Center for Women’s Incontinence and Pelvic Health. Brock has also been public about the low number of cesarean sections that he’s performed while touting his preference for vaginal deliveries.
