Medicine is an applied science in many ways, and Mr. Bradley Smith’s approach is to use the scientific method and hypothesis testing. He only orders those tests that he thinks will yield valuable evidence. His goal is to provide more efficient and effective medical care for his patients.
He is a native of Wichita, Kansas and attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa before joining the army. His experiences while deployed as a Medical Platoon Leader serving alongside the finest medics, physician assistants (PAs) and physicians in the army inspired him to pursue the MEDEX Physician Assistant program at the University of Washington.
During his training, he worked with medically underserved communities in Pierce and Kitsap Counties. He received his obstetrics training at Naval Hospital Bremerton and continues to volunteer there once a week.
He and his wife met in high school and have two active children. They spend much of their spare time exploring the Pacific Northwest. He is also an avid science fiction fan and can often be found watching Star Trek reruns and reading old novels by Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke.
