Dr Bradley is amazing she is knowledgeable friendly and kind

Reviewed on Oct 21, 2019

did not ask questions about my condition. she treated me like an inconvenience. I am not satisfied that she took enough time to even understand my case so I can't trust her decision for my treatment. I asked if weight loss could possibly help my condition and her response was "maybe this will be a wake up call for you and stop drinking soda and alcohol." well excuse me but I have 1-2 drinks a YEAR and I have soda maybe once every few years if that. I went on my first diet at age nine- I don't need a wake up call. You need to tell your ignorant doctors to stop treating the disease of obesity as a character flaw or moral issue. I'm not an idiot- I know not to drink sugar. if she is uneducated about obesity then she shouldn't pretend she knows what she is talking about. PS take the time to know anything about me and my history.
