Dr. Michael J Mitchell has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

DR.MITCHELL IS ONE OF THE BEST NEUROLOGISTS I HAVE EVER HAD. I WOULD HAVE TO RATE HIM THE 2ND BEST AS IS DR. TURNER WAS THE BEST. BOTH DOCTORS ARE THE BEST DRS. I HAVE EVER HAD FROM ANY FIELD IN MEDICINE. I DID NOT THINK I WOULD EVER FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR AS WELL AS DR. TURNER BUT HE RETIRED. HE HAS BEEN AVAILABLE WHEN EVER I NEEDED. I DO NOT HAVE SEIZURES ANYMORE AS LONG AS I FORGET MY MEDICTATION
I have been a patient of Dr. Mitchell's for over 10 years and I could not ask for a better neurologist. I have suffered from severe migraines that occur more than 3-4 times a week as well as other neurological problems. Dr. Mitchell always goes above and beyond what any other doctor I have ever had to try to help me improve the quality of my life. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the conditions that I suffer from, but he always does eveything he can to try and keep my symptoms as manageable as possible so that I may have as much relief as possible. He is always available when needed and consistently follows up with me. I would recommend him to anyone suffering from any type of neurological problems. He is compassionate and he truely cares about his patients.
I had one visit with Dr. mitchell regarding some very debilitating neurological symptoms. He was kind and amiable. He wanted appropriate lab tests and imaging to proceed. I was to wait for confirmation on the appointment dates. He did call with lab results, but after weeks of waiting to hear of my mri appointment, i called to find out that he had never actually put orders in for the testing. I handled that on my own. After the mri i got one phone call telling me results were normal, then the next day a call saying the results were not yet back. That was a month ago, and have heard nothing since then. No follow up at all. My symptoms were severe and impeding my daily activities. So, i have moved on to another neuro who is excellent on follow up, patient advocacy and communication. Diagnosis can be slow for some of this stuff, but it is moving right along now. Another reason to encourage patients to advocate for themselves and not give up when they know they have a real problem. Knowledge is power.Dr. Mitchell seems a kind and sincere md, but maybe my type of symptoms were just not his thing.If I ever hear anything back from the guy, i would revise my review, but am not holding my breath.
