What some patients have to say about their special doctor.

John Bradtke, MD

Dr. John Bradtke

I have been Dr. Bradtke's patient for 20 plus years. He is a wonderful person and excellent doctor. He is kind, he listens and he closely monitors my diabetes. When there is a concern, he orders the necessary blood work or tests. Thank you, Dr. Bradtke! Nancy.

Rockelle Rogers, MD

Dr. Rockelle Rogers

Thank you for being so kind and attentive. Your heart speaks even before you do. Pamela.

Duncan Chapman, MD

Dr. Duncan Chapman

Thank you, Dr. Chapman for always taking such good care of me. Through small problems and large, I've had the utmost confidence in the path "we take together", as you said to me, "Take care of yourself and God bless you". JoAnne.
