Very caring, explained everything very well.

Dr. Mitchell is very nice but after 3 failed surgeries I'm very discouraged.

Dr Mitchell is very empathetic and very clear on his opinions and recommendations. My main goal was to get a second opinion and he was very helpful. Also, it's pretty rare to have a doctor introduce themselves by their first name. Really put me at ease. I also felt very sure he knew what he was discussing.

Very thankful for Dr Mitchell and his staff

Doctor Mitchell is one of the most thorough allopathic physicians I have ever met. he put my mind at ease with his explanation of my condition as well as what was necessary to correct it.

These Dr. make you feel like you matter. They are the most pleasant Dr's I have ever had. I thank God for putting them in my path.

[...] I was very impressed by Dr. Mitchell's knowledgeable and no nonsense approach and would definitely return to him in the future for any further orthopedic problems.

I wanted to talk to him about further treatment for my knee. he ordered X-rays even before I saw him and then got me a consult appt. with surgeon.

my caregivers know my name and let me chat with them and put me at ease.

getting back to me took longer then normal

Dr.Mitchell is an excellent physician, surgeon, and orthopedic specialist. He repaired a torn labrum in my hip, and I have received followup care from him since that time. He is always positive, goal- oriented, motivating, caring, kind and compassionate. Dr. Mitchell is one of the best physicians I have ever had, and I feel blessed to have been referred to him. I truly appreciate all of his insights, his integrity and professionalism. Thank you, Dr. Mitchell!

every one at your offices are nice and easy to talk to

Dr. Mitchell was well-informed and very attentive, I'm thankful he will be my surgeon.

I've been seeing Dr. Mitchell since 2014 for left knee joint effusion. He always takes the time to listen to my concerns and offers advice regarding alternative treatments. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.

dr Mitchell explained things very carefully and thoroughly. spent a good amount of time doing so, not rushed. very helpful in explaining my shoulder surgery and what was found

This provider came recommended from a co worker, who had her knee surgery done by Dr. Mitchell, as well as another ER nurse I work with. It does get around who is good and who is not, with the nurses. I was also told that Dr. Mitchell respects nurses highly. He seems to care about his patient. The only reason I go to the Prov Park Valley, would be because of a specialty doc. [...]

Dr Bryan Mitchell was very patient and answered all our questions. He then referred us to another provider when he determined my needs probably would require a surgeon.

Dr Mitchel and staff are excellent.

Good service. staff has been very helpful.

Dr, Mitchell was very helpful.

I was very impressed with the amount of time Dr. Mitchel spent explaining the surgery and answering my list of questions. He listened to my concerns and was able to give me knowledge to help me make a decision on whether to proceed with surgery.

All good.

Dr. Mitchell was extremely knowledgeable and exhibited a lot of patience and kindness. He eased my worry about having hip surgery and took the time to thoroughly explain the process with me. [...]

courteous and helpful

I recommend Dr. Mitchell to many of my friends. He is a very personable and highly competent surgeon.

thanks to Dr. Mitchell he and I looked at the MRI together and he found a fracture that was not previously discovered by my referring PA and MD that read the MRI [...]. Because it Dr. Mitchel I've had a second MRI done and they concur with Dr. Michel that the fracture in my knee was not on my first MRI report that I have been walking on a fractured knee for over eight months and now I'm looking for to a competent Doctor Who can help me with the pain I've been experiencing. I'm very fortunate to have found Dr. Mitchell.

doesnt listen to patients. seems to have predetermined conversation. [...]

surgery scheduler had no patience. felt my questions were disregarded.

I couldn't ask for more excellent people.

Everyone was very friendly and positive. Dr. Mitchell was kind and explained the problem right away -

very detailed, answered all my questions thoroughly, spent a very good amount of time helping me understand the treatment options for my injury

I had great difficulty obtaining a surgical referral to Dr Mitchell from his partner, Dr [...]. When I asked for the referral, as I had questions that I was told only the surgeon who could perform my particular procedure (FAI hip surgery) could answer, I had to ask several times before the consult was granted. However, at the consult, when Dr Mitchell walked into the office and asked why I was there, it was obvious to me that he had either not spoken to Dr [...] or reviewed my records. The results of my MRI were reviewed (seemingly for the first time by him) at the appointment, and while I appreciated the doctor's honesty as to the fact that surgery would not necessarily be a good option for me, I felt rather rushed through the consult, as though he really would have preferred not to have seen me.

During 2 visits to his office, my need to see a neurologist came up. Unfortunately, this specialist seems unable to refer me; I have had to go back to my primary. THe first attempt at a referral led to NO neurology visit. This visit, I was given another name, but must apparently go back to the primary MD. This is NOT an insurance requirement, but Providence's practice. I see the need to be careful, but my neurology needs are going in-addressed.

requested RX refill 5 days ago through my pharmacy and still have no response.

over all very good care
