Dr. Mitchell took the time to listen to our concerns and showed in depth understanding of the issue. She was courteous and prompt in seeing us.She was thorough and the visit did not seem rushed. We would definitely recommend Dr. Ellen Mitchell to other families.

This was our first visit to this office (and provider). Thanks to Dr. Mitchell and staff, our visit was wonderful! my child was only 7 months old at the time of the visit, so I was concerned about how he would react to everything. Dr. Mitchell's kind and calming presence immediately put us both at ease! She took the time to explain everything she was doing while simultaneously keeping my child entertained. She made she to answer all of my questions and even made a great suggestion for further care. Thank you so much!!

The only problem was the long waits (one hour each) between tests. Despite this Dr. Mitchell was worth waiting for. She diagnosed the cause, condition and timeline for healing. She had a wonderful disposition and really cared about me as a patient. I would go back to see her anytime.

Dr. Mitchell is always phenomenal, patient and kind to my kids. The assistant, Heather, was by far the best I've ever seen. She handled my three daughters so well, there was no crying or frustrations whatsoever!

we didn't observe any hand washing or glove use even though this was an eye exam. no sinks in the rooms.

March 06, 2017

had questions that I didn't feel that the doctor seem to be concern about but I was, and I didn't get answers and the answers that I got I feel that the doctor was saying what she wanted and didn't seem to understand my concerns about my vision and was talking to my mom instead of asking me about my concerns, I know that my vision has changed and I wanted to know if I had any concerns for me to worry about. When I left I felt like to didn't kind about me
