Tyler Bradley-Hewitt, MD, received his Bachelor of Arts in Science and Management, Biotechnology Sequence from Claremont Mckenna College and subsequently his Doctor of Medicine from George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Dr. Bradley-Hewitt completed his Pediatric Internship and Residency at Children’s National Health System and his Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is interested in pursuing a critical care fellowship.
Dr. Bradley-Hewitt has been Co-investigator on three different projects at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Michigan. The projects were: Risk assessment of short term pre-operative exposure to fine particulate matter on post-operative clinical outcomes in the pediatric CICU; Intrapericardial teratoma: a single center experience; and Impact of early postoperative diastolic dysfunction on intensive care outcomes in contemporary congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries repair.
Professionally, he also has published on many topics but was the lead author on two articles: The Impact of Echocardiographic Screening for Rheumatic Disease on Patient Quality of Life and Trends and presentation patterns of acute rheumatic fever hospitalizations in the United States.
He also enjoys volunteering and has participated in health and wellness in the local school system; mentorship programs in the schools for healthy nutrition and exercise and has volunteered in underserved DC communities.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
