Dr. Barwin is retiring!

Dr. B. Norman Barwin, one of the Ottawa trans community’s most cherished medical resource people, is retiring officially this summer. His office will close forever at the end of the regular practice day on August 29, 2014.

Dr. Barwin has guided hundreds of Ottawa and area transsexuals through their biochemical transitions over the past several decades and has received the highest awards for service our community can bestow. He retires after 50 years of medical practice as a Gynecologist and Endocrinologist.

All of us at Gender Freedom wish Dr. Barwin all the best in a long, happy and active retirement. We look forward to seeing him on the bike paths and the cross country ski trails!

    Most of Dr. Barwin’s trans patients are it seems, being told to have their family doctor administer their HRT from now on. In other words, Dr. Barwin has proven irreplaceable and Ottawa is proving to be more than ever, a medical services black hole for transsexuals. The advice I was given years ago, was to move to Toronto. Nobody outside the trans community seems to care.
