Dr Bradley I believe cares very much about my health. But I am feeling that urgency getting positive is results is not at high priority. I have been being treated since September 2019 and instead of improving, I am not getting better and in many areas I am worse. After following all diet protocols explicitly and spend thousands of dollars on supplements and implementing and continuing all the life style recommendations and improving and getting worse I am losing hope and confidence in the treatment approach.

Dr Bradley remains an empathetic and caring provider whose breadth of experience and ease of manner makes complex care treatment far less overwhelming. I love seeing her as a person and a provider and she always reinforces that it's me doing all the work, which is such great encouragement and helps me to remember I am empowered as a patient. she feels like a true partner to me, and that is such a great shift in the usual provider-patient dynamic I've experienced in the past (with other providers outside Cleveland clinic).
