Horrible doctor. Absolutely no bedside manner, condescending and a jerk. He mumbles incoherently as he is explaining things. Dirty and outdated exam rooms. This is a man who should have retired years ago.

Horrible experience from beginning to end!!! First, for a place that specialized in treating KIDS, their office is pitiful. There is literally ONE toy in the waiting room and a small TV mounted from the ceiling. They do not accept vision insurance. (WHAT?!?!)The day of our appointment we finally get to see Dr Mitchell - he mumbled through the entire appointment to the point I was not sure if he was talking to me, my son or himself. Then HE TOOK A PHONE CALL IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR APPOINTMENT!
