  • Profile

Dr. David Corfman is a 1987 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where he also participated in The Ohio State University Marching Band for 5 years. He has worked at the Springdale-Glendale Animal Hospital for the past 20 years, the last 12 of them as owner and solo veterinarian. The practice had outgrown the building and his ability to serve it as its only veterinarian, but he did not want to sacrifice quality veterinary care to focus on the business aspects of building and managing a multi-doctor practice. He therefore decided to let our excellent management team do it for him and merged his practice with ours. He and his dedicated staff joined the Animal Care Center of Forest Park in January 2008. In 1997 Dr. Corfman became certified as a specialist in canine and feline medicine by The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. This certification involved writing case reports showing expertise in handling difficult cases, documenting exemplary continuing education and passing a rigorous two-day test. He successfully re-certified in 2015 and must continue to recertify every 10 years to maintain his specialty status. Currently, he is the only veterinarian so certified practicing in the Cincinnati area.

Dr. Corfman lives in Mason with his wife, Patty and their cat, Berlioz.  He is active in his church choir, a black belt in Shito-ryu karate and enjoys swimming and bicycling. He and Patty have two grown adult children, Brad and Kelly.

"The management is top notch and does a great job of training and maintaining a great work force, as well as keeping up on maintaining the practice’s presence online and in social media. They do demand a high level of competence in our work, but that is a win-win-win for us, them and our patients. Working with 3 practices there are always extra people to fill in if needed, and working with younger veterinarians is rewarding not only in getting to mentor them but also learning new things from them that they are being taught at veterinary colleges. It sharpens my skills to make sure I am teaching them well. Also, having several colleagues to work with helps make sure the work schedule is fair and balanced, allowing a good personal life outside of work. Having been both an owner and employee I know a good thing when I’m in it, which I feel I am at Animal Care Centers of Cincinnati."
