Physician Profile

Dr. Brasher returns to his roots

Brad Brasher grew up in hospitals. Born in Owensboro and raised in Paducah, he spent countless hours watching his parents navigate the maze of the American health care system as they cared for his brother, who had a rare heart condition that eventually took his life.

“This experience piqued both concern and interest in the field of medicine,” he said. After medical school, he decided to pursue a career in pulmonology and critical care medicine to fulfill his interests and honor his childhood goals.

“Working in the intensive care unit provides the ongoing opportunity to learn from patients with a wide variety of conditions, and allows me to refine my skills as an internist as well as an intensivist,” he said. 

Dr. Brasher uses his life experiences to guide his relationships with his patients. “As a result of what my family and I experienced with my brother, I am able to better relate to my patients,” he said. “I use it as a tool to help communicate with patients and their families in similar end-of-life situations. Compassion and communication are some of my strongest attributes, and I take pride in knowing that they are founded in something that was once so difficult for me to overcome.”

Dr. Brasher and his wife, who is from Louisville, are looking forward to raising their three children in Owensboro among close friends and family. “Although I enjoyed spending the last 10 years training up and down the east coast,” he said, “it is a dream come true to have the opportunity to return home and play a role in improving the health and well-being of the region I grew up in.”
