Dr. Bradley Langley – Founding Partner

Dr. LangleyBrad was born and raised in northern Minnesota. He graduated magna cum laude from Concordia College in Moorhead in 1975 with a degree in biology, chemistry and religion. Brad attended the University of Minnesota Medical School graduating in 1980. Dr. Langley went on and completed his Family Practice residency at the University of Minnesota Fairview-St. Mary’s in 1983. Dr. Langley was also an Emergency Room physician in Hudson, WI for 12 years.

Dr. Langley co-founded Parkway Family Physicians with Dr. David Ness in the St. Paul neighborhood of Highland Park in 1983. Today the clinic continues thrive, 30 years after other medical professionals said their vision of care could no longer survive.

“I’m married and raising two dogs and have a passion for woodworking, carving and sometimes writing. I also hand-built a timber frame cabin adjacent to the Boundary Waters in northern Minnesota where kayaking, hiking and fly-fishing give me great pleasure – where, if I listen carefully, God’s words can be heard beneath the rocks (a la Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It) – where my soul restores.”

“With a brief foray into seminary, (when things were once unclear), I was re-energized and convinced that medicine lies very near the heart of the Gospel – that medicine had always been my calling. I find it a privilege and a joy to live out that call by caring for my patients in the ways medicine allows . . . entering their lives and trying to do the right things for the right reasons for those who grace me with their trust.”

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Ness has been taking good care of me since 1988. Last year I needed major shoulder surgery and he referred me to an orthopedic surgeon who had the same compassion and medical values as Dr. Ness. Major surgery is no picnic, but with the kind and caring support of Dr. Ness, my surgeon and the team at Woodwinds Health Campus, my recovery was faster than expected, I was able to start physical therapy sooner and get my life back to normal. I credit the success of my surgery and recovery to the relationship between Dr. Ness and I, and in him knowing not only my medical history, but knowing me as a person and providing the level of care based on that knowledge. By the way, the day after I returned home from the hospital, Dr. Ness called to see how things went and more importantly how I was doing.”
