"It is really important to understand the differences between surgical and other menopause symptoms and treatment and Dr Short provides that insight and specialism. I have been a patient for a couple of years and we have navigated around different HRT solutions. The advice is always pragmatic and proactive. I would highly recommend being in her care."

"I made the decision to reach out for specialist support after several years of distress following surgical menopause. The first appointment was in person and living a considerable distance away I committed time and energy to this. It was well worth the investment. Subsequent consultations have been done via video. As well as her in-depth knowledge and specialism evidenced by referencing up-to-date clinical research and patient studies, Dr Short can also empathise with the difficulties I have endured. She is practical, informative and supportive. Her passion for patient care and bespoke treatment is extensive and she takes care to really reflect the ethos of one size does not fit all, every patient is different. I would highly recommend her for long-term support and treatment, and where possible reach out before surgical menopause to ensure an accurate baseline."

"I have had three consultations via phone with Dr Short. I was referred to her following a consultation with the Newson clinic. My PMS symptoms were overwhelming for me as I started perimenopause. Dr Short has been really encouraging and patient with me as I was a very nervous patient starting on HRT. Dr Short has tweaked my medication over time and been very supportive with this. I now feel really great and my terrible PMS has vanished. I wish I had seen Dr Short years ago."

"Finding Dr Hannah has been a revelation for me and, to put it bluntly, her support, advice and care has saved my life. This time last year I was experiencing such crushing levels of luteal phase depression and PMDD symptoms that I had begun to put my affairs in order as I could see no way to carry on...
...She listens patiently, never interrupting, letting me get out everything I need to say to be heard and understood. She is kind, friendly, gentle and encouraging and has an obvious wealth of knowledge, understanding and expertise. That she supports a whole food plant based active lifestyle is important to me and how I wish to live my life, she looks at my health holistically and the changes we are making have made phenomenal improvements to my mental and physical health already. I have hope again, we have a plan, I'm no longer alone in this."

"Dr Short is a brilliant person to deal with. She has a caring bedside manner and a reassuringly efficient and professional approach. She understands complex needs and offers holistic views. She was available to help me in between my consultations, when I needed it, and has been an invaluable support in a difficult time. Thank goodness for specialist doctors like her."
1st April 2021
"She was very welcoming during our session and held such a safe space for an open discussion. She made it very clear that she would send all the information by email so that I did not have to remember everything, and that letter was so clear!
I felt heard and she always gave me space to add, even if we had moved onto another question or discussion. She was friendly and understanding, and I felt I could openly share my experiences with her.
I am looking forward to starting my new routine she has offered me and have faith that I will find my feet again."

"This is really hard to put into words because I am only just starting to appreciate the dramatic alleviation of my pre-menstrual symptoms as a result of starting a treatment plan prescribed by Dr Hannah Short. I have tried other protocols for pre-menstral tension in the past which didn't work for me and it is only since seeing Hannah and being diagnosed with PMDD and perimenopause that I at last felt someone understood, validated and believed me. I had confidence that if one course of treatment didn't work for me there were other options that we could try. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Hannah Short."

"Dr Hannah Short is, quite simply, marvellous. I first met Dr Short in February and I am delighted with the huge improvement in my severe debilitating vaginal problems, since Dr Short changed my medication and advised on foods and supplements that might help. I had a telephone follow up consultation and Dr Short gave her time to talk through my complex health problems which continue to affect everyday life. She asked if anyone had mentioned POTS and gave me the information about the various types of this condition and suggested I take a look at POTS.uk.org. Dr Short's professionalism deserves the highest accolade. She is kind, caring and very knowledgeable and I value and appreciate her help so much and I will always be so very grateful that she has spent the time to help me. Thank you Hannah."

“Had a virtual consultation today and it was actually a very satisfying experience as I was not sure how it would feel not being able to see a doctor face-to-face. Dr Short showed much wider insight and understanding of a more complex medical situation than what I have experienced before. Looking forward to see where this journey takes me.”

“Dr Short is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and someone you can talk to. I received great care, advice and respect from her throughout my consultation. It was wonderful to meet a doctor who actually cares about my wellbeing and who took the time to explain everything. I am truly grateful.”

“I first heard Dr Hannah Short speak at a conference for plant based health professionals about her interest in menopause symptoms and treatment. I decided to consult her about my own menopause symptoms and I am so glad I did. She really listens to what you are saying and shows great empathy and understanding. It is so nice to be truly heard. Her approach is holistic and includes diet and lifestyle advice as well as HRT if necessary. She has a lot of knowledge and experience with HRT and can explain the benefits and risks based on real science which is great unlike a lot of sensational press articles! If you want a doctor who will take time and really listen to you and suggest treatment and lifestyle changes that will make a positive difference to your health and importantly your quality of life, then I would definitely recommend Dr Hannah.”
