I have worn glasses my whole life and Dr. Mitchell has struck me as a thorough doctor. She took the time to counsel my daughter regarding life choices in response to an issue we brought up. She is sensitive and caring.

The "Care Provider" was a specialist in vision care at UPMC, one of the best in the Country.

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" :)
