Dr.Mitchell is a heck of a great Dr. and surgeon. Had tongue cancer which he did good job of takin out the cancer, and a neck dissection 44 lymph nodes. The Doctor is a straight shooter and tells it to in simple terms so you understand. Staff is very accommodating and gets back to me on questions and follow up.

Dr Brian Mitchell is an excellent surgeon and a kind and caring physician. He is honest and upfront and will tell you the the full extent of your condition. He had to do massive surgery on me (10 plus hours) and got me thru without a glitch. I highly recommend him, without reservation

I recently accompanied a loved one to an appointment with Dr. Mitchell. He was so kind, caring, compassionate, and professional. He delivered information in very easy to understand terms. The treatment plan which he presented was logical and reasonable. I was highly impressed with Dr. Mitchell and would recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Mitchell, Thank you for helping my mom. She is alive and kicking as a result of her heart and your skills as a surgeon. I know the cancer in her tongue would have taken her and when I met you....it was like I knew you would treat her and all patients you see as if they were your own.....I realize this comment is not timely but I have still made my thanks to you.

Dr. Mitchell is very personable and can get things done in a timely manner. He gets to know his patients personally, and he learns from us. I was a cancer patient with a very unusual side effect of treatment (not his treatment, but radiation following surgery), and after that experience he said he'd never wait so long to intervene in cases like mine. I was very well informed compared to others I've met online with my condition. I cannot recommend him more highly.
