Helping People Keep Healthy

Austin Regional Clinic is pleased to announce that Bradley K. Pittman, MDFamily Medicine physician, has joined the team at ARC Far West.

Originally from Liberal, Kansas, Dr. Pittman says, “I wanted a career where I could see that I was helping people on a daily basis.” Speaking about his approach to practicing medicine, Dr. Pittman says, “I believe that listening to a patient is the cornerstone of diagnosis and then applying an evidence based approach to treatment.”

Expounding further on his philosophy, he adds, “My most important role is educating patients so they can then choose the right treatment option for themselves. I also believe that helping people keep healthy through exercise and nutrition is the most important thing that I can do.”

Dr. Pittman is a runner and a reader, as well as a dancer and a dog lover! “I’m an avid runner both on the road and trail and travel frequently both in the US and abroad as I enjoy exploring other cultures. I spend a lot of time at the local dog parks with my dog. I read a lot, especially novels and history. I take dance lessons and especially like swing and salsa dancing.”

When it comes to health, Dr. Pittman has this advice to give, “If you don’t have the time or energy to exercise on a given day, try to get in just 5 minutes. It will make a difference and may boost your energy.”

Welcome to Austin Regional Clinic, Dr. Pittman!
