Dr. Mitchell sets an example of what all optometrists should strive to be like. She sincerely cares about all of her patients and spends the time necessary to provide them with a thorough exam. She educates her patient and is very personable and friendly (I actually enjoyed going to a doctor!). She works hard to keep all of her patients happy and will do her best to make sure they leave satisfied. Her staff is also very friendly and hard working. My vision is very important to me and I had such a wonderful experience coming here; I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Thank you! :)
