Biography

As a physician's assistant, Andrew Bodmer's philosophy of care is summed up in a quote from Benjamin Franklin - "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Andrew emphasizes prevention, good nutrition and exercise with his patients to help prevent chronic conditions.

"I was inspired to enter the medical field because I am fascinated with how the body works," Andrew says. "I chose family medicine because I enjoy developing lasting relationships with my patients." He likes working with patients at all stages of life.

After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, he received his Master of Science degree in Advanced Physician Assistant Studies from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Ariz. Andrew is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Andrew loves the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. Away from the office, Andrew enjoys running, biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife and two children.

Every provider I have been seen by in the Bridgeport PMG clinic has provided excellent care. They are all kind, caring and I feel they know me well. It is the best care I have ever had! They should be very proud of the care they provide, they all deserve the highest praise.

I think my concern/frustration with the experience is that, as a result of x-rays and physical exam, it was recommended that I get an injection to alleviate the pain (via the MyChart system). Other than recommending that I get the shot, there was no discussion (in person or in the email) about the pros and cons of that injection, not was it recommended I call to talk about it (or set up an appointment/consult) nor is it even possible (that I could see) to reply via the MyChart system with questions/concerns, nor was an alternate email or phone number provided for me to do so. It simply said, essentially, "Yup, your shoulder looks bad, I recommend a shot".

It is always a good experience when coming to the Bridgeport Office. Just love the girls up front, the nurses are always polite and caring the doctors especially nice and informative. I am 76 years old and they do not treat me like I am a dingy old lady who doesn't know what is going on. The doctors say how can I help you not why are you here [...]

My visits always feel rushed, and I only have time to cover one of my medical issues, while I have several different concerns that I am attempting to figure out root cause and have treated, I have to pick and choose which one is the most pressing at the time before I go in, and many chronic issues I have end up taking a back burner to non-chronic issues because at the time, they are more pressing. I worry that other, long term issues are being neglected because I never have the time to discuss them properly or have them investigated for diagnosis.

I had to leave the clinic before being seen. I waited about 30 min in the room and had to get home [...]. I was pretty frustrated, but shortly after I got home Andrew called me to apologize and said there was a patient in crisis and he was unable to leave. And I understand that. Andrew offered to work me in and offered to stay late to see me but I declined as my hands were full with my son.
