In response to the comment posted by "San Jose" posted on Feb 02, 2016:  I do not know of this incident or this patient.  As a contracted provider we are obligated to bill patient's insurance.  It would be helpful if this person would identify themselves and contact my office so we can clear this up.

Excellent, intuitive care...Brian is hands down the best in town, if not in the state.

I have been in chronic back pain for a number of years and after my very first appointment with Dr. Short I was pain free for the first time in a long time the entire next day. Of course to remain pain free it is important to stay consistent with appointments and take advice for home care seriously.

I had suffered for 9 months with the aftermath of a serious car accident. My doctor recommended Dr Short as a gentle man with a wide range of up-to-date knowledge in chiropractic care. Dr. Short is easy-going but very efficient, thorough and competent. My pain and the alignment of my neck, back, hips improved dramatically. I followed his advise to the tee including supplements, pillow, shoes, car seat adjustments. He listened and explained everything in layman's terms to ensure understanding

He is the BEST and his gift to heal has helped me get to living a pain free life! He came highly recommended to me by my doctor at a time when I was having horrible back pain and could hardly stand. He is my go to guy for all body aches and pains!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Short. A chronic condition was remarkably changed in a week and the pain released.

Dr. Short has a laid back manner and is efficient and follows through from car seat adjustments, shoe adjustments and body adjustments. I highly recommend him. He can pull you out of a chronic or acute situation.

I went to Dr Short after a car accident. All was well until my auto insurance funds ran out. He refused to bill my health insurance, even though he was contracted with them. He made threatening phone calls, said he was going to send me to collections, & took out a personal lien against me. We went round & round even though my insurance told me repeatedly they were willing to pay it all. My health insurance had to request bills from him, & when he finally sent them in, they paid him.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Dr Short has an easy manner to help the client feel relaxed in his care. His technique is different compared with many other chiropractors I have seen in the past. No high velocity movement or cracking bones! His treatment has helped me with neck and low back pain as well as migraine headaches. He has also helped my teenage daughter over the last few years with a variety of musculoskeletal complaints.
in Santa Fe NM |
Dr Short is certified in the activator method, which is most helpful for me. His protocol relieves my pain.
in Sante Fe NM |
Excellent- took the time with me to listen to my concerns-
in Phoenix, AZ |
Very thorough and professional. Great in an emergency situation.
in Questa, NM |
Dr. Short is a gentle person with a great sense of hummer. His knowledge in his field of practice is excellent with a great bedside manor. His method of chiropractic healed my neck problem and my mother's spine problem as well. I return for maintaining the body alignment to Dr. Short more often. I have and will recommend him to my friends and family! Thank you Dr. Short for your excellent work!

The depth of Dr. Short's knowledge and expertise is unmatched.
