Dr. Mitchell's Care Philosophy
I have patients who are part of the healthcare team since I opened in 2002. I continue to care for my patients at three local hospitals, some nursing homes, and in the office. I try to get regular and new patients in within 48 hours of the call. I do the best that I can for each patient. I try to provide cost effective care. I am a solo and independent physician, who does not charge facility fees. The doctor-patient relationship is based on trust and continuity of care. I personally care for each patient of mine in the various locations, seven days a week. I look forward to having quality new patients, while maintaining my practice of high quality patients.
