never had a bad experience here

Would like to have heard a diagnosis and treatment plan. I was disappointed that she didn't discuss my TBI and what I should expect with my loose of vision.

Dr. Ellen Mitchell is a wonderful doctor! We are blessed to have our child in her care!

December 03, 2018

Dr Mitchell is a specialist so that is why she had no medical records for this visit. she is extremely knowledgeable and all aspects of my child's condition were reviewed, tested and reviewed for future needs. the best doctor in her field!

Dr. Mitchell is excellent!! She did the surgery for my son when a dog bite him and got his eye. He needed a new tear duct and stitches. At his appointment to remove the tube for the tear duct Dr. Mitchell was very calm with my child as he was crying and shaking his head. My sons eye looks great! Can hardly tell where he had the stitches. I want to thank Dr. Mitchell and her staff for the excellent work and calming my son when needed!!! I will definitely recommend her to anyone that needs a doctor. Thank you again!
