Patient Comments (2)

I've been seeing Dr. Short ever since he came to the clinic in 2016. He is always very helpful, and he takes time and listens and helps me with my problems. He is a very caring doctor, and I'm glad he is there in Paragould. I would recommend him to anyone.

I went because i was having symptoms that had me very worried. Dr Short spent 5-10 minutes with me. Not thorough. Didn't listen. Obviously in a hurry. I will never use Doctor's Clinic again.
