About Bradley G. Ackerson

"As an oncologist, I strive to empower patients by teaching them about their diagnosis and treatment options. I am grateful to work with a multidisciplinary team that utilizes the latest technological advances to prioritize individualized and compassionate care for each patient." - Bradley Ackerson, MD

While in training, Dr. Ackerson connected deeply with his oncology patients. He decided early to dedicate his career to helping individuals navigate what can be an unexpected and unknown diagnosis. He was drawn to radiation oncology, a specialty that focuses on individualized treatment plans for each patient. Dr. Ackerson finds the relationships that he develops with patients and their families particularly rewarding. He also values the team-based approach that he has in the specialty.

Dr. Ackerson has an interest in exercise medicine/oncology and earned his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification while in training. He was fortunate to train at one of the largest brain tumor centers in the world where he completed a special certification in treating primary and metastatic tumors of the central nervous system.

Dr. Ackerson truly values the personal connections that he makes with people. Helping patients navigate difficult situations like a cancer diagnosis creates a special bond that he is grateful for. He feels very fortunate to be in a field of medicine that strongly prioritizes compassion and connection.

Dr. Ackerson was born at Providence St. Vincent hospital and raised in Beaverton. A 15-year hiatus for school and advanced training gave him a deep appreciation for how wonderful it is to live in the Portland Metro area. Dr. Ackerson and his wife love the culture, food, professional sports, and access to the beautiful outdoors that Portland provides.

Dr. Ackerson enjoys staying active through endurance running, biking, and playing tennis/soccer. He also likes to spend time with his wife and children by backpacking, traveling, and coaching youth sports. They all cheer hard for everything Duke, most notably college basketball.
