dr. Mitchell is the best eye doctor I have seen for my daughter. I would follow her anywhere. she is incredibly kind and attentive and I always look forward to our appointments.

Favorably impressed with the dynamics, empathy and thoroughness of Dr Mitchell and her entire care team.

August 18, 2015

No bad experiences. It was a very busy day when we were they but everyone remained calm and friendly

August 13, 2015

First time using the eye clinic at Children's Hospital...and it was great. My son was worried about the experience; did't want anyone touching his face but the staff was friendly and patient allowing me to calm him down in order to complete the appt. Towards the end my son said "this was the best doctor visit ever" :)

Our family has been very happy with our experiences with Dr. Mitchell and her office. She has accommodated our requests for appointments, even taking us early and squeezing us in so that we wouldn't have to make multiple trips to Pittsburgh. She is kind and caring, taking time to talk with our son and family while in the room. We appreciate her so much!

Very thorough from resident doctor and then Dr Mithchell

July 17, 2015

Dr. Mitchell was the most courteous DR I have ever come in contact with. She was professional and had a GREAT bedside manner. She seemed very knowledgeable in her field and was as professional as a person could be.

February 23, 2015

We felt very comfortable with Dr. Mitchell during our child's visits and surgery. She explained everything in ways that we could understand, and answered all of our questions. Her quiet self-confidence put us at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a pediatric ophthalmologist.

We went through 2 other eye doctors before finding Dr. Mitchell. She is excellent!

December 19, 2014

This was my first appointment with Dr. Mitchell and I was very impressed - she listened carefully, explained care options and next steps, and I was surprised and pleased when she was able to offer an interim solution that corrected my double vision temporarily. The pediatric neuro and opthalmic fellows who also treated me were very kind and patient and knowledgeable as well. This was my first experience at UPMC. In spite of a long delay due to unavoidable problems, medical and support staff were all patient, calm and pleasant throughout.
