We have used Dr. Brady since the day our daughter was born (19 months ago). We love her and do not plan to switch physicians anytime in the near future. She has always addressed our concerns with our daughter, even when we were dealing with her reflux issues. We have NEVER had any communication differences and have been on the same page. I am a parent that does not take "no" for an answer and am not passive on my approach, so maybe that is why I get things accomplished and don't have issues. I am shocked at the parents that have had bad experiences. Dr. Brady has only been late (30 minutes) ONE TIME since we have used her. And it is not uncommon for a pediatrician to be with a patient in the hospital. I do not see how someone drinking coffee is relevant and how that can determine where they were.

After reading these posts I feel more driven to write in regards to my experience with Dr. Brady. We had several bad experiences and a continued lack of appointment times being honored with our 2 year relationship with her. Too many to note here.

The last straw, however, was when we took our 3 year old daughter to her office 3 times in less than 7 business days with acute symptoms of severe abdominal pain, constipation, enlarged abdomen, continued fever of 101 only to be dismissed as "virus", "gas", and a "urinary tract infection". They took a urine sample and might I note NEVER called with the results. On the way to the hospital I am speaking with a nurse and she states "The test was negative your daughter is all good now". I simply replied if that was the case I wouldn't be headed to urgent care with her.

After that conversation and I decided to take it to the next level and went to Children's Mercy in Kansas City. To my shock they found what they referenced as a "large opaque mass." 4 days later it is identified as a 6lb tumor inside my 31lb baby! We spent the next 8 days in the hospital trying to figure out what exactly we were dealing with.

Her condition is called cystic lymphangioma. Although it is a very rare condition Dr. Brady's and her colleagues lack of concern merited no additional testing or follow up. I have to ask am I out of line to expect my daughter's pediatrician to have called after receiving the records from the hospital? WOW 17% of her body weight was removed from her and she can't find time to call.

I opted to keep my daughter's 3 year well check up and asked for an opportunity to speak with Dr. Brady at length. I was assured that there was adequate time allowed for this. I was treated with disgust as I stated I would not pay the co-pay upfront but would be happy to pay it at the end of my visit with Dr. Brady. However, after another 45 minute wait with her staff having no idea where she was or when she would be coming in we chose to leave. Apparently she was strolling in with her coffee in hand as we left the building.

Later that day she called and stated that she was at the hospital with a baby which I would question since we were the only patients on her side of the building seeking treatment that morning. She also stated on her message that she would be willing to meet to discuss my daughter's hospitalization however would need to do it prior or after patient care since I was refusing to pay the co-pay.

My daughter was a patient of Dr. Brady's from February 2008 to September 2009 a total of 19 months. During which time she was seen in that practice 14 times. I often wonder if we were simply looked as be a set of neurotic parents.

All I was hoping for was a sense of ownership in her negligence. Because of it's rarity I would have never expected her to "diagnose" the issue but I certainly would have expected her to recommend further testing. A simple sonogram could have caught this many months ago. I wanted to know that because of this experience she took the time to educate herself and be reminded to take a step back from time to time and really look at what is going on with her patients.

I understand that Dr's make mistakes and I am a forgiving person but I can't tell you I am not angry at her for showing such a lack of compassion and care.

I hope this someday lands in the right hands and maybe Teresa Brady will learn from her mistakes. I assure you she would be both devastated and appalled had she received the same type of treatment for any of her children.

We had several bad experiences...the last straw was when my son had an ear infection for three weeks, finally rupturing and the office and doctor saying that his ear was fine. He was on the wrong treatment from the get go...we switched pediatricians after this, someone who was competent and put my son on the right medication. My son hasn't had a problem since. We also never had a good feeling from Dr. Brady, as she'd spend very little time getting to know my kid or answering my concerns. I will say on the occasion that we needed to use the other doctor in the practice, I was satisfied. I also had an acquaintance that I referred to Dr. Brady before our babies were born, and she promptly switched after one visit. So chalk that up to two bad reviews.

My daughter saw her as a newborn. My child had horrible wheezing, seemed to be breathe rather hard, Dr. Brady said she was fine, but didn't bother to listen to her breathing. Needless to say my daughter had RSV and was hospitalized after I took her to the children's hospital upon leaving Dr. Brady's office. I am glad I spent the money and took my child in and had her diagnosed correctly by a competent doctor. Obviously we switched to a much better doctor and have been happy for 3 years.

Dr. Brady was our pediatrician for a short time. She meant to give my son antibiotics, but forgot, but put in the chart that she had given him antibiotics. After I called back a week later, the nurse was like "he's already on antibiotics." I informed her otherwise and we got it all straightened out, but my son was sick for an entire week longer than he needed to be because of her. I also had to wait over 30 minutes and I saw her waltzing through the parking lot with her coffee...normally I don't mind waiting if the doctor is with a child, but if they're just running late, I mind. Needless to say, we switched pediatricians.

What a great office! I took my daughter to see Dr. Brady for a second opinion and she became our regular pediatrician. They get in and out of the office quicky, without the being rushed feeling. There are seperate sick/well child area, so that well children don't get sick. Pediatric Professionals, is just that, professional.

I have been very impressed with Dr. Brady!! They are at their new location in the same office complex as before, but upgraded due to needing more space! This makes sense since running a great practice brings more and more patients! All of my questions have been answered, phone calls returned, appointments scheduled within reasonable time frames...and my favorite part is the sick/well waiting areas, alleviating the issue of taking your child in for a well visit only to leave a sick one!! Dr. Brady came highly recommended to us and we will recommend her to all of our friends!

Her office is located near the Lees Summit North High School. My kids love her office and everyone that works in it.She has a seperate well and sick waiting room. The longest I have ever had to wait was 30 min after arriving.You can usually get same day appointments with her group.
