Dr. Louis L Mizell Jr has the following 3 specialties
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

We love Dr. Mizell. We took our children to him for their chronic reflux disease. We have been to other Doctors at Primary's who didn't explain anything to us and gave us no answers. Doctor Mizell took the time to talk to us, explain a scope that he did not even perform and gave us some much needed answers. He was wonderful with our children and you could tell that he loves what he does. We would recommend Dr. Mizell to everyone who doesn't want to wait 6 months for an appointment and who needs a knowledgeable kind caring Doctor who will take the time to communicate with you.
I cannot thank Dr. Mizell enough for the kind and conscientious care that he provided to my daughter dealing with an acute GI disorder. We were able to schedule an appointment within days of contacting his office. He was very systematic in his approach in treating her disorder. During this time, we were able to contact him directly as the status of her condition changed. Best of all, she made a miraculous recovery following her procedure. Thank you, again, Dr. Mizell. I recommend his care without hesitation.
Dr. Mizell is one of our daughter's many specialists, and he is by far our most trusted. We have seen him in a variety of situations - while admitted in the hospital, routine visits, urgent visits, when he performed procedures for our daughter, and after-hours and on-call. In each interaction, he has shown compassion, wisdom, skill, patience, and expertise. We've been through several GIs, but he is the one who finally took us seriously, gave us treatment that helped, and stood by us during a very long road.
Took our daughter to Primary Children's who told us nothing was wrong... No Pediatric Gastro could get us in for 4-6 months... I was able to get an appointment with him in 2 weeks! He saw her once called us at least weekly to check on her and ended up having to do a scope and diagnosed her with gastroparesis... He is amazing!!! And thanks to him our daughter won't miss out on her 8th grade year in school. Thanks Dr.Mizell!!!!!!
Dr. Mizell is amazing. He listened to me when I came to him 5 years ago (at the time I was 13) and told him something wasn't right. He ran the needed tests and diagnosed me with my condition and no other doctor could. He gave his emergancy contact information because of how serious my condition is, and calls me all the time to check up on me. I trust him with my life! And since he figured out what was wrong with me I will be able to monitor my condition and hopefully avoid cancer or catch early if I get it.
