After my first visit with Dr. Shorter I felt very comfortable with her. She is very professional and knowledgeable with my concerns. I like being able to talk with her through the medical portal. My concerns were answered in a timely manner.

Not impressed thus far. I left a message at 1000 and with no response, called back at 2:19. Office staff didn't express any apologies or concern for the delay. Then was told no appointment could be made until I filled out paperwork, which they would mail me. I guess Physicians don't need new patients.

I am writing about Sandwich Primary Care which is controlled by Dr. Shorter. A recent departure by the prior owner was not announced to his patients. I have spent weeks trying to get refills and only found out by accident that the previous Doctor fled the building. Sandwich Primary care is in complete collapse of moral and ethical judgement. Very bad business, now a bait and switch. This lady is putting my life at risk without a care. Shame on this practice.

I love her. She's a pleasure to be with, and extremely honest about the situation.
