When you are surrounded by a poor staff, how great are you?

Dr. MITCHELL may have all the credentials the world can offer. His staff is horrible, and after the dealings we have had their recently how can such a "great" doctor stand behind it? A paycheck I guess. Everyone has to pay the mortgage, thought being a doctor was supposed to be above that. Want to know he problem with outfits like UPMC and WPAHS? The fact that sickness is the product they sell, not wellness.

Dr Mitchell is a fantastic neurologist. I came to him after having a horrible time getting a wrong diagnosis from another doctor at AGH. I will say the office staff is very unfriendly and he even told me to not trust them to get things done. He gave me the number for his assistant if I had questions because apparently UPMC can't hire people to work the front desk who care. Over all he is a good doctor and will do what it takes to find the best course of treatment for you. If I hadn't moved out of state he'd still be my doctor.
