FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
On June 20th, 2012 we celebrated the first year of our gastroenterology practice in Decatur. Dr. Short had his own medical practice in Kentucky and it had been a goal to establish his own solo practice in Alabama. We are so grateful to our referring physicians and our patients who have made this goal possible and have contributed to the success of our solo practice. Thank you!
CONGRATULATIONS DR. WANG!
Dr. Michael Wang, a fellow gastroenterologist and former colleague, recently announced his upcoming retirement. We congratulate him on this milestone in his life and wish him much happiness and success in the future. We are currently accepting any former patients of Dr. Wang who may want to be seen by Dr. Short in the future. Just call our office (256) 260-2333 to set up an appointment or with any questions you may have.
