I have had years of bad experience with this doctor when I was pregnant at 16 I was having issues and he wanted to send me to Vancouver and I said I don't fly so he said ether I go or I lose the baby we'll I stayed and he was not happy and sure was not happy when I carried to full term and had a healthy baby also when I was having kid again a few years later he promised me a epidural we'll he never came back to my room Intill it was too late and I was ready to push and in a lot of pain he told me to stop my squealing and I told him to get out of the room and he got all mad walked out of the room and came back sat in a chair and said he had to be there since I'm a v back and my mid wife delivered a healthy boy he's not nice if you stand up for your self
i have had 3 different appointment and a surgery with Dr Mitchell. Dr Mitchell was always warm, professional and extremely attentive to my needs. Hospital staff really seem to respect him too. I really appreciate that he more on the serious side. That is kind of calming when a Dr is looking at your private area :).
After reading the comments on this site I am noticing a pattern. If you respond to his treatment you love him. But if you are a patient who develops complications or doesnt respond to his treatments he turns into a arrogant prick. Also if you dont respond to treatment he suspects IBS. Well, sometimes treatments work and sometimes they dont, and when they dont work its not always because of IBS.
I'd read & heard that this Dr. was hard to deal with. I don't know who they met but I think that he is wonderful. Very clear in detailing my diagnosis and providing me with treatment options along with his recommendation. I took his advice & within 5 weeks was scheduled for a Hysterectomy. The surgery was performed last week and I feel awesome! Dr. Mitchell and his team did a great job. I expected to be on bed rest for at least a week afterwards but was pleasantly surprised to be medication free (other than the anti-inflammatories) and virtually pain free within 2 days of the procedure. Thank-you!
Love Dr. Mitchell. Had him for as my first OB and now again for my second. He also delivered my son (luckily he was on call). His mannerism is very dry but I don't need a friend, I need him to know what he is doing and to show me that he does. He was very thorough during appointments, covering everything and answered all my questions with reassurance, and did a terrific job in the delivery room with his calming no-nonsense manner.
This world needs more doctors like Dr. Mitchell who has made it his mission to help us women!!! From the time of my diagnosis til the time I was on the mend was very fast. I was gotten into surgery in record time and now 6 weeks later I had my post-op check-up. Dr Mitchell was kind, very pleasant, made me feel at ease and knows his stuff. Thank you Dr. Mitchell, I will be forever grateful!
This fellow is an excellent surgeon. He may not have "the best" bedside manner, but he is pleasant, not rude, explained everything I needed or wanted to know, and followed up with me. I healed very well, in the time he said. His office was able to co-ordinate the surgery time well with my son's surgery in the same week. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
When I went into NRGH after my water broke I initially saw Dr. Sommerville (whom I like) and he set me up with my epidural and wished me luck. The staff told me the Dr. on call was Dr. Mitchell and he is a more "no muss- straight to the point" kind of guy. Not much in the way of chit chat but if you need a great doctor in the OR he knows what he's doing. That's just what I found. He was very to the point, no idle chit chat. Explained what was happening to me (emerg c-section) and why I was getting one. Mind you I was pretty doped up and didn't fully understand everything.. he did an excelled job delivering my son and stopped by to see me once post-op and before discharge. My incision is neat and hasn't infected. He knows his stuff, but I wouldn't say he is the most "compassionate" person. He remained straight faced as I cried when I was told I needed a c-section. His bedside manner could use with a bit of improvement, but overall a knowledgeable dr to have
Arrogant, rude and unsympathetic to the discomfort of the procedure he performed. He neither introduced himself or made eye contact me, and told me I was wasting my time and money dealing with a naturopath for my condition. I will never deal with him again!
Good god people, I was warned about this doctor by several people but I can say I totally appreciated his professionalism and his hidden dry sense of humour. He put my concerns at ease and gave me options I'd never considered. My take on the warnings with regards to this Doctor's personality is that I wanted a good doctor, and I wasn't there to make friends. He was to the point, apologized due to the fact that the appointments were running behind, and didn't make me feel uncomfortable in the least. I will return to this doctor, you have to work a little harder to get him to laugh, but it's possible and the whole experience was pleasant.
