What People Say About Dr. Jay Bradley, MD
Dr.Bradley is amazing. He takes his time and answers all my questions. The only problem I have are the receptionist, they can be very rude. I dread going to see Dr. Bradley because of them. They work in health care and should treat everyone with kindness and compassion.
