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 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!

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

)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.

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 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!
