Specialties

Dr. John F Mitchell has the following 4 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
  • Surgery
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Great caring doctor

I have been a patient of dr mitchell for about ten years now. After seeing several other docs he was the only one to properly diagnose and treat me. He listens to you, doesn't talk above you, explains thing so that you understand. Mental health issues don't have a one time fix all, they are ever changing and so your meds change as your illness does as long as your honest about how you feel and educate yourself about your illness your in great hands he is an excellent doctor but not a Mind reader, you have to participate.
