Barely examined me, guess he just didn't want to bother. He missed diagnosing six out of seven issues including, but not limited to; inter-vertebral disc disorders with radiculopathy, degenerative disc disorders w/ osteophytes (bone spurs) inter-vertebral disc displacement, spondelolitheses, and spinal stenosis He was a grumpy old man and I'm glad he retired. He never took into account that I had done construction for the past 39 years. As a matter of fact, Dr Shortt told me that I had a condition called 'Weavers bottom' as he presumed that I sat on my butt too much. He never gave me a preliminary x-ray and never asked about my past employment. The only saving grace about this practice is that he hired Dr. Ycaza to do spinal steroid shots.
