The provider acknowledged the long wait and her appreciation of me waiting. I think an apology would have been a better way to acknowledge an extreme wait. Had it taken 5 minutes more I would have left. You ask patients to come early and for them to wait is inexcusable without being informed.

Dr. Bradley is EXTRAORDINARY!!!She is one of the top doctors in her field, but truly in a class by herself when it comes to the care, compassion, empathy, intentionality, and expert guidance she provides her patients. After one visit with her I received more information, guidance, and resolutions to my healthcare needs than any other provider I'd been under the care of in two decades. Her work speaks for itself; however nothing compares to how supported patients feel leaving an appointment with her. Before God led me to her, while researching the health concerns I was having on YouTube, I started to lose hope. Other doctors weren't listening or taking intentional action towards helping me regain my quality of life. I'd recommend her to anyone who wants to be seen, heard, and supported by their doctor. She is thorough, kind, and extraordinary!
