Pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful, Dr. Mitchell took the time to answer questions and prescribe a good course of action to take for my issue. The appointment was scheduled for 10:45, I signed in at 10:47, but wasn't taken to an examroom until 11:22. A little longer wait than expected and desired.

Dr .Mitchell is amazing had awesome. Desire manor explains the MRI in great detail while examining your body part. Answer all questions . He has seen both of my sons and I will not go anywhere else . This is abusy practice sometimes your in fast sometimes their a wait. But keep in mind it is better to weight for a doctors that takes the time to understand what happened and diagnosis you with treatment then for one to treat you like a conveyor belt .. he is an amazing doctor who is passionate about what he does and when you love and have passion that is when you have found a great provider .

)Came off very knowledgeable, but my experience was super frustrating as he categorically refused to ever give me straight or concrete answers. I broke my foot (5th metatarsale), however as I was healing, when I would ask what level of activityI was permitted to do, his response from the first day (when I had a cast on), to the last (when I was walking again, and going to PT) was "take it easy". That is not helpful. Also, he couldn't, or simply wouldn't, provide any insight into why my bone had broken, or what I could do to avoid it happening again (except "take it easy"). I would not go back to him again.

He was candid and direct when he spoke to my teenage son, man to man, concerning his sports injury recovery. My son is motivated to recover before resuming his sport, rather than to play injured and risk further damage.
