I took my 6 year old to see Dr. Mintchell for his back to school check up. She was absolutely wonderful and made him very comfortable. He is normally wary of doctors and not always ready to do what they ask,but she was able to connect with him and he did everything she needed him to.

It's great I can book an appointment without calling the office to schedule. I wish more doctors had this feature. My eye was swollen and I was worried I did damage to my eye. Turns out it was caused by allergies.Thankful Dr. Mintchell put my worries at ease and prescribed drops to help. My eye is feeling much better!

This is my second time seeing Dr. Mintchell. And she's just as pleasant as my first visit last year. What I like about her is that she's personal and she truly cares about you. I ended up asking her about somethingI saw on a poster hanging in the room and the way she explained the different parts of the eye was fascinating. You can tell she really loves what she does.

I very much liked Dr. Mintchell and felt she did a very thorough exam. I look forward to future appointments with her. However, I wasn't very impressed with the office staff as I had called and given my insurance information aheadof time and submitted pictures of my card to Zocdoc. I did this as I know my secondary insurance is confusing. However, they did not follow through in checking into my policies and I had to leave without being able to purchase contacts which is annoying. They are supposed to follow up tomorrow, but I was hoping my phone conversations would have led them to be proactive.
