Laurel Bradford, M.D.
The best part of being a pediatrician is telling kids I am looking for dump trucks and unicorns in their ears. Truly, the best part is watching children grow and develop while working with their parents to help their families thrive. Being a trusted partner in the care of children is rewarding, and I enjoy answering questions and providing information assisting parents to make informed healthcare choices for their family.
Both my parents were in the medical field, so I thought about being a doctor from an early age. It wasn’t until I completed a research internship in college that I knew medical school was the right path for me. Once I was in medical school it was clear I was meant to be a pediatrician. It’s the only kind of doctor I ever wanted to be.
I grew up in West Linn and spent most of my childhood playing outside, riding horses or hiking with my family. I was the captain of the equestrian team in college and hope to get back into it someday when my kids are a little older. My husband and I have two young children. Recently we introduced them to the Harry Potter series and have loved experiencing the books together. I hope to take my kids to a Michigan football game someday. Go Blue!
I share my practice with Dr. Kimberly Boyer, who completed her residency around the same time as me, so we have similar training and styles. We often work together on complicated cases and share new ideas and perspectives, which makes us both better doctors.
Every patient has a primary pediatrician. Sometimes, especially for last-minute appointments, your pediatrician may not have available appointments, so our pediatricians partner with each other to reduce wait times and improve access to care. Additionally, they partner with someone that complements their style and brings a fresh perspective to their patient’s care.
