Dr. Mitchell and family

Dr. Mitchell enjoys taking care of children from birth through adolescence and would consider it an honor to care for your child. The birth of a new child brings immense joy, hope, and excitement to a family. However, with that joy and hope also come stress and uncertainty. Participating in the joy of a new child while helping a family through the stressful times is the part of Pediatrics that Dr. Mitchell loves most. The opportunity to share in the life of a child and make sure that he or she goes through life healthy and able to reach his or her full potential is the reason he became a pediatrician.
