This doctor is in Charlotte North Carolina currently. He was very short with me and took little time to discuss problems and resolutions. Maybe it’s due to the insurance I am on. It sounds like the other reviews he has treated people kinder and has taken adequate amount of time to listen and treat them. I, on the other hand, had a different experience. He is the type of doctor that knows everything and patient knows nothing. His way or no way:(

1st. Dr. Short is no longer in Alabama, he's in Charlotte, NC, where I saw him. Dr. Short seems to have a great personality with good bedside manners. He was very professional, a good listener and seemed to care for my well being. He earned the trust factor early on. I have been shopping for a Dr. for 6 months. Dr. Short is the 2nd Dr. I visited & I am sticking with him. I will be recommending many people to Dr. Short. Welcome to Charlotte Dr. Short.
