Dr. Shorten treats my narcolepsy, migraines and most recently my seizure. It's wonderful to have a Dr that actually listens to me and seems to really care about me.

Dr. Shorten and his office staff are very friendly and efficient. He takes time with you and you don't feel rushed at all. He listens to you and doesn't just automatically think he knows your body better than you. I highly recommend this office!!

Dr. Shorten is the fourth neurologist I've seen, and he's the most capable. I'll keep my care with him for as long as I can. He's very knowledgeable and is a top notch communicator.
