“I love the technology but what is most meaningful to me is to teach my patients, listen to their needs and give them the care they deserve.” — Dr. Bagley
Dr. Bagley’s path to medical school was an interesting one. He studied math and physics at the University of Utah, worked in business and taught school for two years before making the leap to medical school. He enjoys teaching his patients about cancer, the disease and the treatment. Once you sit down with him, it is quite clear teaching is an important part of his practice. “We’ve gotten away from the paternalistic model in oncology. Patients and families drive their care and that’s the way it should be.”
The field of cancer is always changing and Dr. Bagley enjoys continuing his own education. As a Radiation Oncologist, it is no surprise his favorite book is Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout. However in his free time, he and his wife, Diana, enjoy swimming, hiking and adventures with their five children: Jack, Luke, Max, Will and Lily.
