He has been my oncologist for so long that he knows me well. He understands my life style. He’s the best!

I have nothing bad to say about my entire experience at Froedtert Hospital, Dr. William Bradley, his staff, the RAPS team the Cancer Network and all of the nurses, techs, food staff & cleaning personnel that I encountered during my experience was top notch. My life threatening, and very scary health situation was turned into a very easy helpful and respectful experience. All my fears & discomforts were addressed and administered to promptly and courteously. If anyone I know ends up in a health situation that is life threatening I would recommend Dr. Bradley (if applicable) and Froedtert & Medical College hands down. Thank-you all for taking care of me in the fashion that you did.

Dr. Bradley and his nurse were extremely kind and considerate. I was well taken care of.
