Dr. Short says...

I believe patients appreciate my compassion, ability to relate to their injuries and optimistic approach to their care. Experiencing foot and ankle surgeries myself, I take the time to explain, diagnose, and provide treatment in an empathetic manner. My philosophy includes listening to the patient, being compassionate and providing a full explanation of diagnosis and treatment recommendations to ensure patient comfort and understanding.
