Patient Comments (4)
in Rogers, AR |
We are extremely disappointed in Dr. Short's refusal to see my husband, a VETERAN, all because he cancelled an appointment a couple years ago and is now considered a new patient. We've jumped through hoops for months trying to get approval through TriWest and the VA. Made multiple calls to Dr. Short's office trying to get an appt. He's been without his medication and we were going to have to wait months to be seen anyway. Your office should have told us you would refuse to see him months ago!!
Summers, AR |
No compassion, caring or professionalism from Dr. Short or her staff. I missed one appointment due to taking care of my husband who has battled a foot ulcer for 2 years & recently underwent a below the knee amputation. I called to make an appointment due to worsening symptoms & the nurse berated me for missing one appointment. When she finally asked me why I needed to come in she told me that it sounded like my pcp was taking care of everything & could adjust my medications.

No compassion at all. Refuses to listen to anything that is longer than one sentence no matter how vital to your care it is. I felt like I had absolutely no say in my care and she completely disregarded 6 years of chronic illness as if they never happened because she didn't "see" it. All of the staff from check-in to nurses were cold and did not smile. Never calls with results just sends results in mail. I will never go back.

Dr. Short is very compassionate and gentle - she listens to my concerns and gives me viable options - I have the highest confidence in her knowledge and abilities. I always feel that my health care is a partnership between Dr. Short & me - she never tries to force a decision or treatment on me but rather gives me options and makes accommodations for any concerns I have.
