Our child has special needs and this provider went above and beyond. Our son is nonverbal and not much understanding of what is happening so he became extremely upset. She stayed so calm and collected. We were very impressed by Dr Mitchell

Our appointment was scheduled at 3pm, we were not seen for initial eye screening until after 4pm and did not see the doctor until almost 5pm. I understand that delays happen, but this was a significant amount of time to wait with a toddler and there were no updates given regarding the delay and the board stated that the physician was on time. I would have preferred to have gotten a call earlier in the day delaying our appointment time or rescheduling to another date. The doctor or the staff did not acknowledge the delay/wait time or apologize for it during our interactions. The total time in which we were seen by a staff member or physician was less than 30 min.
