She refuses to see a patient for a minimum about of money owed. She is not a good doctor and she is very unprofessional. She has a bad disposition. Why work in this field and not have a heart for patients and if patients don't come to her for services she wouldn't get paid. She needs counseling.

Excellent Doctor, not so good nurse as of 8/2013

Dr. Short has been my primary care physician for 19 years. She is so easy to talk to and makes sure you feel like every single appointment is important, even if you just have a simple cold. I have severe chronic Asthma and she is a wonderful asthma doctor and has always seen fit to make sure I can breathe. This past summer I have been having some unknown health issues and Dr. Short has tried several things to discover the reason for these health problems. During all this back and forth with Dr. Short I have sadly discovered that she (at this moment) has a unreliable nurse. A nurse that does not give messages or return calls, and when you are the patient at home in severe pain those messages and phone calls are VERY important. She is a doctor that deserves a nurse that is working a 100% of the time, not just when it is convenient for her.
