Bradley Gray, DO

Family Medicine physician for the past 10 years in a large multi-specialty group serving over 300,000 patients.  My approach to healthcare focuses on comprehensive patient care while applying Osteopathic Principles.  In addition to maintaining a thriving practice, for the past 5 years I have worked in the leadership of St. Elizabeth Physicians in Northern Kentucky as a Director of Informatics and Physician Builder.  In this role I assist in development and integration of technologies into our provider workflows as well as integration of changing regulations around compliance and billing into our EMR templates and provider workflows.

When not busy with the details of my profession I enjoy time at home with my wife and two children working at the task of turning a 12 year old boy into a good young man and a 10 year old girl into a good young lady.  Both rewarding and exhausting at the same time.
