Dr Shortz did a very difficult spinal surgery on me and was more than successful - I have had no discomfort from that area since, and the scar is barely visible. He is great at his work.

Bayspine Medical/Dr. Shortz Don't care about you, just the$.

Disorganized mess. The PA is new and makes mistakes....which delayed surgery.I should have gone somewhere else. You likely wont even meet the Doctor as he is too busy. expect 2 weeks to get a paper signed. i wonder how many patients he has lined up who are miserable waiting for surgery.
