What People Say About Dr. Gary Bradley, MD

Dr. Bradley and his staff do not communicate well. His PA has been condescending towards me. It took over 2 days and 6 phone calls to his office to ask a simple question. He sent me for an MRI but never called me with the results. Today, I had an appointment with him and he kept me waiting in the room for over an hour. When he came in, he spent most of the time with his back to me working on the computer. He asked me questions, but did not really want to answer my questions. Too busy!

I moved to a new location and needed to see a knee dr. I talked to him about synvis shots. I always had one shot in each knee. Some drs give 3 shots. This dr gives an unheard of 5 shots. When I asked could he do one synvisc shot he said NO he gives 5. When I asked why he told me "end of discussion". What? End of discussion? What doctor talkes like this when a patient asks a question. Don't waste your time. There are other doctors.

Dr. Bradley is both an excellent surgeon and a very kind person. My hip replacement went flawlessly and I had an amazingly quick recovery. I am truly grateful

Excellent work on total hip replacement. By six months after the surgery I could painlessly hike up and down hills and do other activities that I wasn't able to do in the previous five years.
