Great bedside manner with kids. Explains things every thoroughly and is knowledgeable. I wish he was more on the holistic side but I know that’s a lot to ask in this field. He was amazing!

Granddaughter had colic for 6 months of her life. Cried day and night. Took her to Dr Mizell and he cured her in a week. It was miraculous.

My experience with Dr. Mizell's office has been hands down the worst I've ever had. I've called dozens of times and been on hold for up to 30min. Voicemail said we'd receive a call back within 24 hrs and we didn't. I needed a prescription sent in and he sent the wrong thing. I called back and the receptionist was EXTREMELY rude when I asked how he sent the wrong stuff. She said he was in a rush and didn't look at my records. I don't feel like I can trust him and received nothing but disrespect.

Sure miss Dr. Mizell and his sense of humor and great, relaxed bedside manner. He is VERY easy to talk with, understand. It is AWESOME that HE himself calls you back, just in case you have extra questions! He is very compassionate and knows is stuff!!! We have been transferred away and truly miss him caring for our two kids that have GI issues. He is a WONDERFUL and caring doctor who has your best interest at heart.

Dr. Mizell takes his time to both review history and ask questions. He explains options in depth and discusses routes we could take with both of my kids. My son had been having serious issues and has been going to PCH for 2.5 years. One visit with Dr. Mizell and we switched. He took the time to look at all possible issues and ordered a simple test that hadnt been offered by his team at PCH. It showed a big issue and since changing diet my son no longer complains of feeling sick and has gained lb

I can't pick 0 stars unfortunately. He must pay people for the higher stars reviews. It was a waste of time to see him for my baby. He needs to go back and study medicine. I know it's not right to give babies steroids. Don't waste your time here go to primary children's instead.

Very helpful and non judgemental. Having a failure to thrive child is hard and even some drs make you feel like youre not doing enough for your child. Dr. Mizell is different and that is greatly appreciated.

Dr. Mizell was a pleasure. He had my 16 year old daughter at ease within minutes. He spent an hour with us and was very thorough in getting a medical history on the first visit as well as explaining the various possibilities of diagnosis and how we would proceed. He also has a great sense of humor.
