    Dr. Mitchell was very friendly and professional. I was nervous, but Dr. Mitchell's demeanor was one of genuine caring, and she made me feel at ease, so my procedure was MUCH less stressful than what I expected it to be. My daughter has also been seen by Dr. Mitchell, and had the same pleasant experience. My husband was seen by another doctor in the same office (Dr. Folan), and he too had a good experience. We would highly recommend this office, and I was very pleased with Dr. Mitchell.

    Dr. Mitchell is extremely affable and her the staff at the Medical Center Point do everything they can to put you at ease.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Most inept doctors office in town. No one knew what they were supposed to be doing. Wait times were ridiculous and the waiting area was dirty and smelled disgusting. To top it off, the doctor didn't even try to address my concerns. We walked out.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Completely untrustworthy and unscrupulous
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    She has a great personality and a wonderful bedside manner!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Do NOT go here. These people do not care about you. Every person in this office is only interested in churning patients through as fast as possible for maximum profit with minimal effort. If you need medical care, go to a real doctor's office.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    I have NO CONFIDENCE in this doctor, or anyone else in this office. Every person I encountered was an assembly line robot devoid of interest in the patient and only concerned with money.
    in COlorado SPrings, CO |
    I am confused, is this for the Colonoscopy or the follow-up visit? If this was for the exam, the office and staff are great. The only concern I have is that twice I have heard remarks about my polyps not being marked. As this is of import, wondering why they were not? If this is regarding the follow-up visit, I did not see Dr. Mitchell but instead saw the nurse practitioner. Who changed her answer at least twice when I asked if my children should be tested earlier than 50 because of my results.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Patricia nailed it: don't waste your time going here. After months, I finally got in to see a doctor that has zero interest in seeing patients. This is a bad place.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Terrible place. Bad doctors who don't care.

    Colorado Springs CO |
    Great office with great people. Procedure was done on scheduled and they released me quickly after it was done
    in Fountain, co |
    I have to admit that I was really nervous about this procedure. I managed to avoid it for ten years but Dr. Mitchell was so exceptionally professional. She was so perceptive in recognizing my level of anxiety, and reassuring in her display of competence, that it really did help allay some of my unfounded fears. I have to give Dr. Mitchell and my primary care physician, Dr. Amy Owen, a heartfelt thank you for being such outstanding doctors. I am blessed indeed!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    My own doctor is retiring and In my inquiry and search on Dr. Mitchell, I found her qualifications and reviews to be very good. However, i'm told by her office she does not accept senior citizens and AARP Medicare Complete insurance. Unfortunate!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr Mitchell is a very professional and caring doctor! I was able to see her within the time necessary to do my prep for the examination and was in & out of my procedure in a timely fashion. She explained to me the results of the examination verbally and I received a report via the mail in a short amount of time. I appreciate her caring attitude & felt that she sincerely cared for my well being. I will definitely recommend her to both family members & friends.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    I was very apprehensive about this procedure as it was my first time. The staff were all very friendly and professional and I felt at ease. I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone and everyone who recognizes the need to have this invaluable service. I am so relieved that everything turned out well. They even served us specialty coffee following the procedure which sounds like a little thing but was very welcome. Debra Forehand

    very easy and very good, all went well, I would recommend to others. Came home and felt great. I like going to a smaller office instead of a hospital setting.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    I was very nervous going in but the entire staff and Dr. Mitchell made me feel very comfrtrable from the moment you walk in the door. Everyone is very professional.
    Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Mitchell was very good at answering questions. She was very attentive an kind during the appointment.
    Colorado Springs, CO |
    Absolutely! Dr. Mitchell was so kind and caring, in a genuine fashion, before and after the procedure. Because of a sibling's history of polyps that I wasn't quite sure of, she asked if there was any way I could contact my sister before she did the procedure and Dr. Mitchell talked to her directly. Amazing! Thorough, knowledgeable and professional.

    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    I was made to feel at ease, and I felt confident that Dr. Mitchell would do what is best. I am grateful for the fact that even though I began coughing during the procedure, Dr. Mitchell continued under considerable difficulty. I found this out after the procedure.

    she listens to what your saying most doctors don't and don't want to. she listened to my history of hospital experience and came up with a practical solution.
    in Woodland Park, CO |
    I had sent a message to Dr. Mitchell prior to colonoscopy procedure asking for an alternative prep. She got back to me through her PA, and recommended Prepopik, which worked really well for me. Her bedside attitude both before and after the procedure was calm and caring.

    in Monument, CO |
    A colonoscopy is not the most pleasant of procedures. Dr. Mitchell, and the entire staff made me feel comfortable and at ease (as much as you can when waiting for this procedure). Very friendly competent doctor.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Mitchell took the time at a pre-procedure visit, to listen to my concern about having a first time colonoscopy, and was very kind during the procedure as well.

    Great listener and she thought outside the box and sorted out a 6 month problem with a good resolve.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Professional, friendly, took time to answer my questions and explain my situation.
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    My total experience was great, thank you! The only thing that I would recommend is to be able to print out "The Day Before Instructions". I printed out 24 pages from the instruction section and the page that told me when and what to do did not print. I could see it on the screen, but it would not print, everything else did. I had to hand write instructions so I could be sure to do what I was supposed to. Other than that, it was a very comfortable experience, thanks again!!
    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Very pleasant, informative, and professional. Made me feel very calm and secure. The entire staff were wonderful and friendly. Everyone obviously knew what they were doing.
