Quick and to the point for whatever I've come in for. Dr. Short sees my entire family. Wonderful interaction with my son and his diagnosis has kept our family healthy and over illness quickly.
"Thanks for the kind words! We're really proud of our staff, and glad to hear that you had a good experience here."

Dr. Short was the 1st MD I could get an appt with when I moved to B'ham about 2 years ago, and it is easy to see why. He is short on empathy and difficult. He shows little consideration for the patient's knowledge of their own history and is very condescending. Medication, if given, is given in the smallest quantity possible - & not just narcotics. Tests and rechecks, though, he and his office think are great, as long as it keeps the money coming. I'm looking for a new doctor.

He is a really nice guy, however I just don't feel 100% confident in his knowledge. Went in for a general check up (which is covered by insurance in full), and asked a question about a sore foot. At that point, I was notified that it would no longer be a general check up and would instead be an office visit. More than $100 for him to look at my foot for five minutes and refer me to a foot specialist. Disappointing.
We are always appreciative of any feedback. Feedback supplies us with information that assists in reviewing our processes to ensure we are providing the best service possible for our patients. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Dr. Short's practice of basic family medicine leaves much to be desired is an understatement. The laissez-faire method of treatment doesn't reflect well nor does his poor reasoning when challenged about conclusive decisions. I also experienced push-back when seeking prescriptions. Eventually, I sought a different primary when a lack of trust in his judgement lead me to feel like I couldn't be honest with him about deeply private health concerns.
in Bellingham, WA |
Put making a buck over my health. Cut me off of my prescription until I came in for a visit. He only told me how important it was that I keep taking my medicine but said that he would cut me off if I didn't come in twice a year. Only cares about money, not patient health.
