I had surgery Oct 2017, for a femoral hernia, I didn't have any problems I went back to work early. I would tell anyone that he is Professional ,easy to talk to. And he really listens to any concerns you may have. Will go back to him if it's ever necessary.

I had previously had triple laparoscopic hernia surgery and in April, Dr. Bradley explained some of the discomfort I was experiencing could be due to scar tissue and gave accurately predicted what to expect in the coming months. 6 months later, I incurred a inguinal hernia that required open surgery. It's now 5 weeks since the surgery and I am completely recovered! He told me exactly what to expect and what to do after the surgery. He is a wonderful surgeon and I'd recommend him to anyone!

I was sent to see him about having my hiatal hernia repaired. He briefly said I wouldn't be a good candidate because my acid reflux meds haven't worked well. Well that is why my GI doc sent me to him. But, all he wanted to talk to me about was having weight loss surgery....I'm not that overweight, btw. I told him I didn't like that idea because I know people that haven't done well with it and after that he just totally gave me the cold shoulder and was done with me. He kept using hand sanitizer.
