Dr. Mitchell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mitchell "William Mitchell, MD, is a board-certified medical oncologist. He cares for patients with all kinds of thoracic cancer, including lung cancer, mesothelioma and thymomas. As director of Palliative Care, Dr. Mitchell also oversees the care provided by a multidisciplinary team which aims to improve the quality of life for those with serious or life-threatening diseases. Dr. Mitchell is passionate about educating future generations of doctors and integrating palliative care into all levels of patient care.
