Dr Mitchell has been extremely thorough in diagnosing my condition and working through the maze of insurance requirements. The latter being the most difficult and really shouldn't be on the doctor to have to accomplish. It took about 6 months to get to a definitive diagnosis and Dr Mitchell used other neurologists to confirm his working diagnosis. Great follow through and a trustworthy advocate for the patient.

Dr Mitchell is extremely smart. But this requires the patient to be smart as well. The more information you can provide him (meaning keep a health journal when you begin becoming concerned about your symptoms) the quicker he can diagnose your condition and offer a suitable course of treatment. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone with an IQ over 100.

He is a good doctor but good luck getting an appointment. You had better not need one as it will take two months to see him (or more).
