Dr. Mitchell and Stacey his PA are wonderful. They always educate you on your issue and how to make things better. Dr. Mitchell is very upfront but I like people who are like that and don't sugar coat things. He did my shoulder surgery and I had a fantastic end result.

Been seeing Dr Mitchell for years, he has replaced my knee and is now looking at my shoulder. He is friendly and an excellent Dr. His staff is the same especially his front desk staff. Excellent all the way around.

Subpar work. Dr. Mitchell is a below average doctor. He provides below average work. His bed side manner is mean, rude, and unfriendly. He is supposed to be a pediatric doctor and I would never have my child around him due to personal experiences with him in his office and mishandling of my child....more

Don't let you talk and hardly ask questions before they cut you off and the front desk girl is really rude and unpleasant to deal with. Steve is wonderful and very caring acts like you matter and understands you are in...more
