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.

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.

I got a rash this time around but he was unable to diagnos what it was. I am to come in for a follow up if it didn't go away. he is a delightful doctor. everyone I have gone to through Providence have been exceptional.

Drew B. Has an excellent attitude and is very knowledgeable. He diagnosed a skin condition I had accurately and prescribe medication which cleared up my condition up in three days. I had the problem for some three months and it wasn't going away. [...] I have confidence in Drew.

It was alright. I would like more receptiveness and assistance in general [...]. I want to find out what's wrong with me and I feel like I have to fight and research and figure it out myself. I'm sure they care, but that doesn't always come across. Explanations of blood test results would be great instead of just getting the info in My Chart and not really knowing how to read it. Recommendations for further investigation or treatment would be nice. I feel like they just up my depression medication and send me on my way and don't really want to be bothered with helping me explore my symptoms or issues further.

[...] saw the Physician Assistant Andrew Bodmer. He was attentive, but I was disappointed in the follow-up. I was told I would receive a follow-up call with x-ray results. I thought we had confirmed that the office had my cell phone, and I waited all day the following day for the results. Only late that night did I find that a call had come to my home phone [...] When I called in to get the results, I got a quick message that "they found nothing on the x-ray, it was likely arthritis, and they were referring me to a podiatrist" from the person answering the phone with reference that the information was available on "my chart". I had not heard of "my chart". After some questioning, I found out how to get into this online information, but could find no reference to the results of the visit or x-ray. If online communication is an option - I think that's great, but please make me aware that it exists and help me navigate it! I was able to get into my online chart, but found no information there about the diagnosis, the referral, or anything pertinent to the problem I was being seen for. All I know is that the problem I have been having was dismissed as "arthritis", and that I am being referred to a podiatrist. [...] And despite following directions, the problem is getting worse - not better! There wasn't an opportunity to discuss this diagnosis with the provider and ask questions. I am hopeful that the podiatrist can provide some answers. As this point, I am a bit frustrated.

Andrew Bodmer is not my primary care provider, however, I value his opinion and the information and care that he has given me. He is easier to see than the primary doctor and will continue to make appointments with him unless I feel that it is absolutely best to be seen my the primary.

Andrew Bodmer has worked with me twice during the time I have had Dr. [...] as my PCP.
