Glenside, PA |
She was my mother's doctor for a very long time. She always listened to her and treated her with kindness and respect and gave her time to explain her medical problems. Dr. Shorten always made the correct diagnosis and prescribed the right things for my elderly mother who had multiple medical problems. Thank you, Dr. Shorten for helping my mother live in good health to a ripe old age.
