Patient Comments (3)
Very rude and unprofessional receptionists. Incompetent and argumentative. Very difficult to get through to office. One time I was chastised by the woman who answered the phone for not not leaving a voicemail. I said I wanted to talk to a real person. She was a complete jerk. If I didn't like Dr. Short so much, I would totally switch to a different office.
