I can't begin to say enough about matt. He has the best personality and has a great knowledge of ortho. I would recommend him to anyone including my family. I added a problem on to my visit the day of my visit and he addressed both of them. The Medication he gave me was exactly what I needed to feel better. He's great with every age group! GO SEE HIM!

My first interview with Dr. Shortt was an excellent experience. In less than 45 minutes, I met Dr. Shortt, was introduced to dr. Gardener, and decided on an operation. Had X-rays, scheduled the operation and all the necessary supporting appointments, gave my history, signed papers, and expressed my concerns that I had from a previous operation. He responded to my concerns. Everyone was sympathetic and kind during the visit.

I would highly recommend Matthew Shortt to family and friends. I was looking for a new orthopedic provider as mine had retired. I was referred to Matthew Shortt, PA-C by my personal medical care provider. I couldn't have been more pleased. The entire facility was so comfortable and friendly. I tend to stress when going to a medical appointment, especially a new facility. But this was a wonderful experience and I was treated with respect and I didn't stress out at all. Matt is terrific!!!

matt is a wonderful orthopedic dr. he explains everything to me and is always there for me when I need him. I always ask for him as he understands and listens to what I have to say I would never think of seeing another orthopedic dr. very sweet and kind.. what can I say? he is the best in my eyes takes the very best care of me if I was to have to rate a 5 star I would give him a 10 stars
in Pilot, VA |
Matt is very attentive & listens well. He pays attention to developments in his field & uses that information to minimize discomfort for the patient and to clearly inform the patient about what is going on. I am so glad I found him. I wish he was a surgeon so that when I have to go down that road I could have him, but alas, no. R ;-)
in Blacksburg, VA |
Everyone in the office is so friendly and accommodating. I have seen Matt several times. He has been excellent every time. He listens and is very perceptive and caring. My recent visit was for a broken wrist. This, as my previous visit, was horse related. He knows that my main question is always "when can I ride again?" I was very happy when the option for the broken wrist was a new kind of cast that is more like a brace and is even removable. Impressed that he stays up to date with tech.
