Dr. Short treated me after a life threatening infection with Rocky Mt.Spotted Fever. I found in her a compassionate, knowledgeable, dedicated warrior with the resources to make me as well as possible. I had been pushed to a dozen different specialists with no positive results. I just read an article on the Fox News site that mirrored by journey before and after my treatment by Dr. Short. It prompted me to share that invaluable information and to credit Dr. Short.
Dr. Short sincerely cares about her patients, and is very good at diagnosing and treating many conditions. She takes the time to understand your history and you as a person and then treats the whole person. She is extremely knowledgeable, and takes the time to educate you on your condition, diet and lifestyle, and treatment options (traditional medicine and/or alternative/homeopathic). I would highly recommend Dr. Short if you have not had success with other doctors/treatments.
Dr. Short, is a great doctor. She is very compassionate and was able to diagnose in an hour what other doctors were unable too in months. She was the 15th doctor my husband had seen in 4 months and was by far the most caring. His appointment lasted 90 minutes and she went over everything with him. I highly recommend her.
