Dr. Tabetha Bradley, board-certified general surgeon, received her medical degree from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and has been in practice for eight years. She trained in general surgery at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, the first approved surgical residency in the Pacific Northwest. After volunteering for two years in a very busy hospital in West Africa, Dr. Bradley is now practicing in her hometown of Chelan, Washington. She treats conditions involving the abdomen, skin, breast, soft tissue, hernias and trauma. To minimize post-operative pain and recovery time, she performs many operations using minimally invasive techniques.
