Dr. Mitchell read the hospital reports and understood my reasons for being there. He listened to my explanations and advisedand offered treatment that was available. Some of that treatment is already working and I now have much less pain. I will follow up on his other suggestions, and have hopes for a more mobile lifestyle.

I was called back quickly but sat in the treatment room for a very long time - probably 40-45 minutes before the doctor came in. I was with the doctor himself for less than 5 minutes. Felt very very rushed even though I was there a long time. I had to cancel the follow up appointment and it was extremely difficult, you can't leave a message. I called first thing in the morning, I was on hold for 30 minutes, then when someone did answer they immediately put me on hold again. 30 minute wait time on the phone just to cancel an appointment is really unacceptable. I also tried emailing through the web service but no one responded.

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 exam room 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 a busy 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 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.
