What People Say About Dr. Cynthia Shortell, MD
Reply
This was the worst medical experience I have ever had. Dr. Shortell and her staff are extremely incompetent and not forthcoming with information. I would not in good conscience recommend them to anyone. I do not trust them and am extremely unsatisfied with the results from my surgery.
