while he may be a good surgeon, he does not listen to his patients, had to go to a second surgeon to find a life threatening issue he missed though i kept telling him i felt something was wrong, he blew me off, on more then one occasion. I will give him the fact that he semi knows his job but i think he has become to big for his britches and feels himself as a god. Thanks for my first surgery and thanks that i had to go to another surgeon to fix your mistake, take a step back and remember why you went into medicine and LISTEN to your patients i think they know their own bodies better then you do.
It has been 12 weeks since my surgery and I am recovering well. Dr. Mitchell performed a Bentall procedure with EEG on me. He saved my life, and I am so grateful!! He is an excellent doctor!! He said that I actually had 3 major surgeries in one, but thanks to him I had no complications. I can't thank Dr. Mitchell and his entire surgical staff enough!! I would absolutely refer family or friends to him. He is very intelligent, courteous, and respectful. Thank you, again!!!
