I was very please with the doctor. He was very informative. I was disappointed that they did not have my child's past medical records and did not want to get the. However I was very pleased that they didn't find any medical concern that we didn't need to return.

Outstanding in every respect!

even though we did not come up with the reason for my problem, I would highly recommend Dr. Mitchell. She spent a lot of time with me and was wonderful, as was the staff.

I was seen by 3 people at Dr. Mitchell's office, including her, a fellow, and an ophthalmologist (I'm guessing, from the tests he ran on me). They all listened to me every step of the way, and took my concerns seriously. It was the first time, after YEARS of complaining to other doctors of the same problem, that anyone took me seriously, other than the referring neurologist. When Dr. Mitchell and the fellow (whose name I can't recall) compared notes (they did separate exams), they came to the same conclusion, that I have two conditions that are affecting my eyes (I only knew of one), proving that I'm not making it up, as I was accused by a different doctor. When Dr. Mitchell came to a bit of a roadblock in treating my problem (it's only intermittent, and the fix needs to be applied permanently to my glasses - when I'm not having the problem, the fix would actually cause me to have the problem), I offered that I could get a 2nd pair of glasses made this year, so they can apply the fix to one pair for me to use when I'm experiencing the problem, and have one pair for when I'm not. She thought that sounded like a good way to deal with the situation. I was glad that she allowed me to have input in how we fixed this going forward. She's a very relaxed person, while also being very professional. I was glad to hear that the problem wasn't all in my mind, or something that I just had to put up with, all things suggested by other doctors. I told her, while it's not fun to hear that I have a second condition affecting my eyes, it is a relief to have answers, and for that, I'm grateful to her. I'm so glad she is very nice, and got to the bottom of my problem. I've just met too many uptight neurologists who don't listen, even if all they have to do is run tests to find out the answers, like Dr. Mitchell and her staff did. It made driving 40-some miles with a minivan that has a leaky brake line worth it!

This was my first visit to this specialist and to any UPMC facility in Oakland. Everyone in the back office was extremely professional, knowledgeable and empathetic. They were able to elicit the symptoms manifested and make a diagnosis. They provided medication along with education related to the disease and medication SE. They provided me with direction for follow up care with the intent to arrange it for me. They are a great team and I feel very lucky to have found them.
