"I began my journey toward better eyesight with cataract surgery on my left eye. Dr. Mitchell and his staff are first class, professional, and very compassionate. My experience so far has ben such that I am not worried about the procedures. This staff has taken all the time necessary for my wife and I to understand the procedures, the medications, anyhow to contact them for help I cannot imagine anyone, anywhere going a better job."

"I really liked Dr. Mitchell explaining everything he was doing and what I should be seeing the entire surgery. He called to check on me later in the afternoon.
