Dr. Damien Mitchell is a board-certified pediatrician who specializes in the care of newborns, children, and adolescents at Forest Lane Pediatrics. He joined Forest Lane in 2009 after completing his pediatric residency at Children’s Medical Center Dallas where he received an “Award for Clinical Excellence” and was selected to be Chief Resident 2008-2009. Prior to his residency training, he received his Medical Degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry from Southern Nazarene University in Oklahoma City, OK. Dr. Mitchell also is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the American Medical Association, Texas Medical Association, Dallas Medical Society, and the Pediatric Society of Greater Dallas. While practicing at Forest Lane Pediatrics, Dr. Mitchell has been named a “Best Pediatrician” by D Magazine and a “Mom Approved Doctor” by DFW Child Magazine.

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.

Dr. Mitchell lives near White Rock Lake in East Dallas with his wife and their two children. In his free time, he loves to golf, cook, smoke meats, cheer for the Cowboys, travel, volunteer at his church, and spend time with his wife and family.

Parent Testimonials

“Both my 3-year-old and 4-month-old are patients of Dr. Mitchell’s at Forest Lane. I cannot say enough about this practice. When I had my first, I didn’t realize how important choosing the right pediatrician was. We even tried to switch at the time to someone closer to our home and ended up switching back to Forest Lane. The lactation consultant, the 24 hour nurse line, so many perks! It’s always easy to schedule and when my doctor isn’t available I’ve seen the other doctors and they are all fantastic. They offer smart and educational health tips on their Facebook page, have a wonderful website that is easy to navigate with useful resources and everyone is nice and professional there. I have had zero issues! They do a GREAT job with vaccinations and keeping you apprised of the importance of vaccinating. They also have a wonderful, balanced perspective about almost everything when it comes to parenting and health. I’m so grateful for this office!”

“I started to go to Forest Lane Pediatrics when I delivered my first born at Medical City Dallas, Dr. Damien Mitchell and another Doctor visited me in my recovery room and both Doctors had examined my newborn. Dr. Mitchell just had a warm smile and genuinely examined my first born. He invited me to take my newborn for his first check up at Forest Lane Pediatrics, which I did and I fell in love with Dr. Mitchell’s care for babies, he is just perfect and he teaches me how to go about caring for my kids. He is a warm and very thorough on his examination on check ups and follow ups. Dr. Mitchell also answers any concerns on messages via forest lane portal. I drive one hour to Forest Lane Pediatrics because of Dr. Mitchell. And his staff is very kind and sweet as well. Which is very important to me.

I highly recommend Forest Lane Pediatrics.”
