As a former professor at CCPM, I recall Brad very well. As a former Texan, Brad and I got along very well since I could appreciate his slow drawl so well. As a student, he would always ask questions until he understood the particular subject. We would laugh at the times he spoke to a patient about a “rare” foot problem in which he was referring to the “rear foot”. Once he was established in Texas, he would call me many times asking advice on various situations. I would often interrupt him and ask him to get to the point since he would talk so slowly that I thought he would never get to the actual question.  


Brad was a true gentleman, respectful and deeply caring about his patients. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

RE: The Passing of Brad Glass, DPM


Dr. Glass has left a legacy of head-to-toe class, in a world where exceedingly few even aspire to ultimately do so. Those who knew him, even superficially as I did, would stand in line for the opportunity to agree. My thoughts are with his friends and family.  


Bradley W. Bakotic, DPM, DO, Alpharetta, GA


As a classmate of Brad at CCPM, class of 1973, I can attest to his kind and gentle demeanor. He was a true Texas gentleman. He was considered to be a member of the "Golden Age" of Podiatry. He also actually understood Josh Gerbert 's Texas colloquialisms. I am saddened to hear of his passing.

Many years ago, Dr. Allan Levy and I were the physicians for the New Jersey Americans (ABA), the Westchester Bulls, and the New York Football Giants. Along with his excellent knowledge of sports medicine and his kindness, he taught me about what sports medicine is all about. We traveled from the Teaneck Arena to the Island Garden to treat and deal with the players. I mourn his passing.
