This doctor was superior, standoffish and totally lacking in compassion. I can't imaging discussing sensitive digestive/bowel issues with someone like this. I won't be returning. Lots of other GI doctors out there.

I highly respect Dr Richard Mitchell. He always takes the time to make sure all of my questions are answered. He has performed several colonoscopy's on me and several follow-up procedures. He always patient, very through and always kind.

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Mitchell and feel he cares for his patients. Dr. Mitchell stopped by to visit me twice doing my long hospital stay and he didn't have to do that. Dr. Mitchell apparently presented my case before the monthly panel at Henrico Doctors and might have been responsible for me getting one the best surgeons to take my case. I highly recommend him.

My husband and I have been going to the Dr's Mitchell since 2004. They have been excellent and we would highly recommend them to anyone that needs a Gastroenterologist. We are moving out of the area and will be obtaining new Gastroenterologists. We hope they will be as through and kind as the Dr.s Mitchell have been to us through the years.

Dr. Richard Mitchell is probably the best doctor I've ever had. He's thorough, with a terrific bedside manner. He actually called me at home to check on me, which is something almost unheard of these days. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
