      “I have been a patient of Dr. Shorts for 15+ years, and love having him as my primary physician. He's understanding, compassionate, knowledgeable and listens. 100% recommended!”

      “I have been going to Dr. Short for well over 15 years and I can’t say enough about the man he genuinely cares about his patients and truly gets to know them. He always asked me about my daughter and how she’s doing, and we have a conversation that helps me feel very comfortable as I have a tendency to get anxious during a doctor’s visit. When the nurse first checks me in my blood pressure is usually a bit high but after our conversation, he rechecks my blood pressure to make sure he is getting an accurate picture of what’s going on with me instead of just prescribing more blood pressure medicine. I highly recommend Dr. Short has an excellent family physician!”

      “My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Short's for ten years now. A former co-worker of mine recommended him to me, and we have not regretted it. Dr. Short is truly one of the nicest people I have met, and certainly one of the best doctors. He always takes the time to explain everything so that we understand. I have already recommended him to other people myself.”

      “Dr. Short is the best physician I've ever worked with. He is patient and kind and takes time to truly understand your needs. He has always educated me and informed me on what he thinks would be best. A true family medicine physician.”
