Dr. Bradford's office practice is broken and unable to maintain a schedule. My last two attempts to see the doctor had to be canceled after waiting for an hour or more. My previous office visits where I actually was able to see the doctor were all at least 2 - 3 hrs late.

Dr Bradford is so unreliable. You have to wait over 1 1/2 hrs. in his clinic to see him because he only sees patients one day a week!! They can’t schedule in a timely way because he is so backed up. We all know surgery makes more $ and that’s what he’s out for. The clinic is not important to him....Read More

I can give nothing other than 5 stars for Dr. Bradford. Dr. Bradford removed a mass from an area behind my throat. It was not an easy place to get to but he removed the mass and in doing so apparently was able to go around much of my muscle tissue because I experienced only a small amount of pain...Read More
