Patient reviews for Dr. Carter Mitchell
Dr Mitchell took the time to really listen and seemed to genuinely care about my daughter!
great! thank you!
Dr. Mitchell read the hospital reports and understood my reasons for being there. He listened to my explanations and advised and 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.
Dr. Mitchell listened to my issues and addressed both problems. I feel very confident in diagnosis and care.
I am very happy with Dr. Mitchell; he is a great surgeon. I do feel a bit rushed when I see him for follow up visits - he seems to be in a hurry; other than that - no complaints.
Dr. Mitchell and all of the staff were extremely courteous, friendly. Dr. Mitchell performed thorough exam and listened to my concerns. Thank
Very informative, understanding, has a great dialogue with the patient
He explained everything to my satisfaction. He went through a comprehensive plan with attainable goals and expectations, and recommended a follow-up visit.
Terrific visit. Dr. Mitchell was very detailed in his explanation of what was happening with my knee, and he was very reassuring about the prognosis. I'd highly recommend him.
Wonderfull! Thorough treatment and extremely well articulated to someone not as knowledgeable in medical treatments.
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.
Excellent professional care by all staff members involved.
Great visit. Dr. Mitchell listened to my concerns, reviewed my past MRI, told me what the probable diagnosis was, and gave me my options.
Great bedside manner and took the time to evaluate and review a treatment plan!
Very clear communication.
My reaction to Dr. Mitchell: he knows what he's doing. He treated me with natural and respectful professionalism. He listened carefully and would have taken the time to explain anything I didn't understand.
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 was very professional and friendly. He is very good at explaining things to you.
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 .
It was ok. He’s a nice doctor. But it took way too long for him to see me.
I received a quick & thorough assessment. I like that Dr Mitchell's instinct in my case was to start with a conservative treatment plan.
He was thorough, kind and reassuring.
Thoroughly explained MRI images in detail, gave me options, explained various alternatives as well as short term treatment. He gave me plenty of time and answered all of my questions, without rushing.
He made me feel comfortable, as usual. He listened well, and got my remedy going right away..
Dr. Mitchell has taken the time to thoroughly review my X-rays and MRI, ask lots of questions about my injury, and share both pros and cons of surgery with me. Highly recommend!
Great doctor but waited over an hour to see him.
Hew was timely and efficient and able to meet my needs. I would say you should be direct with him. Be exact with him,
Dr. Mitchell is awesome! He is thorough and articulate in his evaluation and explanation of my issues. Very professional and has a great bed side manner. Highly recommend his practice!
Dr. Mitchell is fantastic.
Dr. Mitchell is a very knowledgeable and Professional doctor. He and his staff take the time to ex-plane things to you and fill you with the knowledge to move forward in your progress. He performed my surgery and all went as flawless as possible. I highly recommend his services.
Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
Dr . Mitchell reviewed the records that I brought. I did not then need further x rays. He discussed the symptoms and proposed treatment.
Great Appointment, would highly recommend. He took the time to talk with me as well as explain next steps in my situation. Great staff as well, very professional!
)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.
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.
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.
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.
Great visit with Dr. Carter. He took the time to talk with me about my knee and explain treatment options. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Mitchell is an excellent physician, very thorough and knowledgeable. I was extreamly pleased with my visit.
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
