Kate Mitchell is a great doctor and at my last visit was excellent as usual. She has the greatest bedside manner and is very thorough. She listens and doesn’t rush you. Makes you feel like she is truly interested in what you have to say. I would definitely recommend her.

I met with Dr. Mitchell on 8/24/21. She is not only Knowledgeable but has a bedside manner of a great doctor. She has been my rheumatologist for over a year and a half and she is always available through the portal, even contacting you after hours if you have any issues. She will be leaving the practice soon and to say that me and my husband are upset about it is an understatement. A lot of times you never find a doctor that truly cares about you and is always available when you have any questions. The staff at emerge Ortho has been very accommodating And I am hoping that our new doctor will be just as dedicated and knowledgeable as Dr. Mitchell!

Dr. Kate Mitchell is the best rheumatologist I have seen. She is willing to take time to listen patiently and never dismiss my concerns. She recognizes that people with rheumatological issues know their bodies and their pain. She recognizes that you are the roadmap to trying everything possible to reach the best results. I am grateful for all her time, care and concern for me as her patient. She is certainly one of a kind!!!

Dr. Kate Mitchell is one of the most caring, engaged, and helpful doctors on my health care team - I highly recommend her! She listens, is willing to consider out of the box ideas, and never makes me feel "less than." She knows that I stay informed about my illness, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and she trusts me when I ask for consideration for a test or medication. I've seen too many other middle-aged, white male doctors who gaslight me or tell me there's nothing wrong with me - and it makes one wary and weary. Dr. Kate Mitchell is a rare bird who gives her patients credit for their knowledge and takes it into consideration when assessing and treating them. I'm forever thankful I found her!!
