Dr Alan Mitchell and his professional, caring staff genuinely enjoy making each patient's complete experience a positive one. Dr. Mitchell graduated magna cum laude with his undergraduate degree from Tufts University in 1981. He then received his medical degree from the Temple University School of Medicine in 1985. Dr. Mitchell’s residency training in ophthalmology was done at New York Medical College in 1990, as well as a fellowship in refractive surgery at the Casebeer Center for Keratorefractive Research and Education in 1993.
Throughout his practice experience, Dr. Mitchell has directed a national consulting service for refractive surgeons and has taught and lectured both nationally and internationally. Dr. Mitchell was medical director and regional education director for the first corporately-owned LASIK center in South Florida. In that position, he proctored and credentialed surgeons on how to properly perform LASIK surgery. Currently, Dr. Mitchell is the medical director of the Mitchell Refractive Surgery and Eye Center. He is certified by the Board of Ophthalmology and fellowship-trained in refractive surgery.
His education, awards, and accomplishments speak for themselves, but Dr. Mitchell’s genuine, sensitive and attentive manner is what truly sets him apart from other doctors in his field. Patients trust Dr. Mitchell because he is highly-skilled, ethical, and confidential. They often pay him the highest compliment by referring their friends to him.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Mitchell was professional, friendly and thorough. The entire staff was efficient and a pleasure to deal with. His explanations were technical, but simplified enough for me, a non doctor, to understand any issues. Would highly recommend him.
Everyone was friendly and professional. The doctor was very thorough and very nice.

Great staff Honest recommendations Good followup/
Great doctor. Have been going to him for year. Not happy about the overbooking (four patients at the same time). Still worth the wait.
Very nice office, the staff and techs were very professional. My appointment went smoothly. They have evening appointments to accommodate patients who can't make it between 9 and 4pm. This is a plus.
Every single person that works there is so friendly, so helpful! Fantastic staff and dr
A true professional. Dr. Mitchell is patient, understanding and looks for solutions. I went to him after another doctor performed a procedure that ruined my sight. He has been compassionate and unwavering in trying to correct my vision with lenses. His staff is just as compassionate and professional. I'm always greeted with a smile. Everyone is always happy. They appear to love what they do. Consistantly his staff tells me how much they love working for Dr Mitchell. You will be in the best care with this practice. I'm sorry I didn't find Dr. Mitchell sooner.
Incredible doctor that takes the time to listen to you and address what you are dealing with. Highly recommend him!
Everyone at Dr. Mitchell's is always so sweet, friendly and professional....they're the BEST! :^D
Wonderful doctor and staff!
Nothing short of amazing! Dr. And staff are phenomenal!
He is a good DR. Had a procedure scheduled for 6.15pm. Had to be home by 8 because of sick wife. At 6:45 went to front desk but Dr still not ready. At 7 Dr walked out with another patient and looked at my cyst on lower eye lid and suggest putting hot compress on and come back next week if not gone. 45 minute wait is just to long unless some emergency which there was not.
I will recommend it to a friend
Great,the staff was really friendly,great attitudes
Would recommend Dr Mitchell to all my friends and family members.
very professional and thorough
Every single staff member in Dr. Mitchell's office was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I've already told a few friends to switch to this office....it was a fabulous experience!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Mitchell's since the 1990's. I drive 40 minutes to his office. I would drive twice that distance. He is the best doctor I have ever had. From his expertise to his manner, Dr. Mitchell is awesome. His staff is equally as nice!
Everything was great. Fantastic staff. Very informative. Will be back for my surgery. No doubt about it.
It was very good. Helpful
I will absolutely recommend this office to my friends. Everybody at the office were very helpful and nice. We were surprised at how professional both technician and dr Alan were. They took time to ask questions about the history of both kids (pediatric eye exam) and explained everything with such a simplicity. Kids loved it and we will definitely be back.
