Verified Patient Reviews
The wait was almost an hour. However, once we saw him I? knew why. He takes his time and is very thorough. He is kind and I? was able to ask him many questions. Absolutely will go back.
I thought his assessment and his recommendation for treatment was reasonable. Although somewhat conservative, I will take the advice given to me and follow-up in several weeks.
Dr.Mitchell is amazing! Although the wait time was a bit long before being seen, it didn't bother us too much as Dr.Mitchell is the MAN! We appreciate how through he is and his bedside manner is impeccable.
Dr. Mitchell is an excellent physician, very thorough and knowledgeable. I was extreamly pleased with my visit.
Great visit with Dr. Carter. He took the time to talk with me about my knee and explain treatment options. Highly recommend him!
Loved him!! Very personable and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.
He was very respectful and kind. Seemed upbeat and happy to help
Dr. Mitchell did an excellent job with my knee arthroscopy. He listened well, was very aware of my needs, and got me back on my feet in no time. He worked with me, unlike other doctors who only have one way they do things. I truly felt like it was a team effort!
Excellent- unfortunately we see him often and everytime are impressed.
He was very descriptive and thorough. Asked questions and described what he saw very well. Pleasant and personable demeanor.
I thought he was very good. He explained everything and answered all my questions. I would recommend him.
I love his manner and patience but today he was rushed so I was there 1.5 hours which included a 1 minute X-ray and a 1 minute visit - not happy
Dr. Mitchell was very thorough in his explanation regarding my injury. He examine the area and gave me recommendations to continue after my release. He made sure to ask if I had any questions and ask if I had any concerns. I would definitely see him again if I ever need an orthopedic MD.
Dr. Mitchell takes time to listen to what you have to say, and offers suggestions about different courses of treatment. He also started with physical therapy rather than jump right into bigger treatments
Apart from the long wait (almost an hour!), everything else was fine. Staff courteous and professional, co-workers knowledgeable, answered all questions, asked if I had others, etc
)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 activity I 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.
I think Dr Mitchell is a great doctor each time if I have any problems with ankes, knees and today my hip he can treat it all.
He was professional, thorough, and fast.
Complete waste of time
He is the best
Dr Mitchell was very knowledgeable and helpful. Even though his schedule was packed, he took his time to explain what he saw in my X-ray and answered all my questions.
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.
Dr. Carter Mitchell was knowledgeable, gentle, caring; his assistant was equally concerned and gentle with my treatment. I had an effusion on my right knee. An Xray was taken. Dr. Mitchell numbed the area, then drained it. I had an anxiety-free visit and experience.
Dr Mitchell is awesome!!
Got in to see him in 14 minutes
Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Highly recommended.
Dr. Mitchell has a great bedside manner, his staff is pleasant and efficient, and he's knowledgeable. I recommend him without hesitation.
He's pleasant and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He is patient and explains everything. I had surgery by him and this was a follow-up appointment. He's great.
I experienced a level of professionalism with Dr. Mitchell that I did not with two previous orthopedic doctors. Dr. Mitchell addressed my injury, gave me his opinions as well as options, and was very kind and courteous.
Dr. Mitchell is awesome. Nothing bad i can say about him. The wait time was a bit long considering i made a scheduled appointment. Waited 30 min in the lobby and 30 min in the examination room.
Dr. Mitchel is the best I have since 1969 47 years
Great Doctor. Wait in office was long.
Dr. Mitchell is an exemplary health care provider. He's not only clearly competent, but also has a reassuring, upbeat personality. I highly recommend him as an accomplished orthopedic surgeon.
Dr. Mitchell is caring, compassionate and a talented palm injection surgeon. I am usually very hesitant about this type of painful injection but he made it so easy with his calm demeanor and assuring tone of voice.. Because of his expertise, this was much less traumatic than other visits for similar procedures with other physicians. I would highly recommend Dr. Mitchell and was very pleased with my choice!
Very knowledgeable and kind.
Dr. Mitchell was great - attentive, professional, pleasure to talk to.
I was impressed with the courteous and efficient front office staff, which immediately put me at ease. The nurse who interviewed me prior to Dr. Mitchell's arrival was equally pleasant and professional. Dr. Mitchell was very welcoming, listened to my comments and concerns, and readily and patiently answered my questions.
Visit was great. Seen on time, even though the office did not have the appointment from Zocdoc. Every person in the office is very friendly and personable.
Dr.Mitchell was amazing with my 16 yr old son who is terrified to have ACL and Meniscus surgery. He explained everything to him not just me.
Dr Mitchel repaired my knee and shoulder in the past and had me back to my normal life in a short period of time. I had 2 other knee surgeries not using Dr Mitchel and the recovery time was a lot longer
Dr. Mitchell is definitely a friendly, cheerful professional. He's very thorough. It's a pleasure seeing him.
Dr. Mitchell was amazing. Sweet with my son and fabulous bedside manner!
Visit went great. Was seen so quickly and taken care of with such professional and caring personnel. Love Dr. Mitchell! If I have to have orthopedic problems, at least I can go to a professional and caring doctor.
There was a bit of wait to be seen, but the staff is so professional and friendly, that it actually is worth it. Dr. Carter is amazing. He not only helped find the problem with my knee, but he listened to what was going on in my life and my exercise goals. From that, he put together a plan of action to get me where I want to go. Can't recommend the office, and Dr. Mitchell, enough!
Great. Efficient yet able to talk and ask questions.
Great from start to finish!
There is a lot of physical therapy going on so I understood the wait.
Each staff person from front desk, to assistants, to radiology technician and the physician were wonderful caring and very professional. I was in a lot of pain and it was a very good experience. I felt like I was in good hands and my problems were going to be dealt with easily with this experienced group.
He was very personal, asked a lot of questions, and gave his immediate feedback to my issue, but also offered other solutions if I wasn't feeling 100% in the time he specified.
Dr Mitchell is the best I have seen in all my life. He is very patient and friendly and so knowledgeable and I am so much better because of his care and treatment.
Very professional, personal and efficient.
Dr. Mitchell has a great demeanour. Warm and welcoming, he speaks directly to the patient first regardless of age. He explains everything thoroughly in a language you can understand. He provides recommendations for treatment. So, it allows you to set a course of action that is the least disruptive to your daily life.
very satisfactory. dr. mitchell explained the issues involved clearly and succinctly. he and his staff made my 9-year-old grand-daughter, who was the patient, feel very much at ease and comfortable.
Dr. Mitchell was great! Very empathetic and compassionate, listened actively, and took my pain seriously. I am grateful to have found him!
The wait time was actually about 10 minutes. What saved time is that I had downloaded all the forms at home and had them already filled out when I got to the office. Dr. Mitchell was very good about taking time to answer my questions and explain things clearly. I felt reassured by his diagnosis and the treatment to follow. I was a little concerned when his aide came in with my shot and had me confused with someone who was getting a shot in their knee while mine was for my shoulder. This got straightened out and should not reflect on the doctor.
He is warm and friendly, brilliant in his work, and a comforting presence.
Excellent all around, great attitude
Very pleasant atmosphere. Didn't like the wait, but the doctor apologized for the delay. I totally enjoyed meeting the staff and Dr. Mitchell. He was gentle, easy to talk with and took the time to listen and provide feedback. Appreciated that 1:1 attention... Thanks very much, Jacqueline H
Excellent left with a full understanding of what was going on and future treatment plan.
My visit was very professional he is a very charming young men.
1) Dr, Carter is a healer, he removed my swelling right elbow and advised my to put wrapped on my right elbow, after 2 weeks on wrapped elbow, the swelling disappeared, It is like magic. 2) Dr Carter re,oved fluid on my right knee, it was painless and a month later both my legs are stronger and I can climb steps with ease. my pain was also gone. Thanl you Mr Carter,
I was very disappointed. I had to wait a long time, the doctor spent about 5 minutes with me, made me come in for a follow up that only lasted a few minutes and was told I needed to get further tests and come back in (this could have been conveyed via phone in advance so I didn't drive all the way there).
Staff and doctor was excellent. Everyone attended to our needs and helped us to their best ability. Would definitely recommend.
It was very productive, I received my x-rays in the same building but on a different floor. The service was speedy, the staff was pleasant and the wait was not long. The only problem was due to the functionality of the building when it came to parking (the parking SUCKS!), which I am sure is a separate entity being the parking services the entire building that includes other businesses in the facility.
Great bedside manner. Seems really competent. I had a fairly minor injury so can't speak about more serious issues, but very pleasant all around.
He has a very pleasant manner and his approach put me at ease. He was prosessional, attentive, and accurate in his diagnosis, explanation, and procedure to correct my problem.
I took my 17 year old daughter to see dr. Mitchell and it was a real good experience, treated her like an adult, came up with great suggestions instead of immediately recommending the most expensive course of action. Explained everything in clear language and also took his time. Would highly recommend this doctor if looking for an orthopedic one :)
