Ratings for Dr. Jamie C. Mitchell
Dr. Mitchell and Norman Parathyroid Center were amazing. My surgery was April 2019 and Dr. Mitchell was professional and caring. Quick removal of tumor. Minor incision. Rapid recovery. Bone pain gone. Energy level up. Feeling really good - wish it cured arthritis too. Go Hoyas!
Dr. Mitchell’s with me and my husband in the Wesley Chapel office prior to scheduling my surgery. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable about my diagnosis. Dr. Mitchell was my surgeon for my parathyroid surgery. Everything went well and he called the evening after my surgery. My children thought we were talking to a friend, not my surgeon. He answered our questions that evening and there were no surprises. I am on the mend now, thanks to Dr. Mitchell and the Norman Parathyroid Center for giving me my life back.
Dr. Mitchell removed my parathyroid adenoma in February 2019, and I am so glad he did. Within two weeks I already felt better. Dr. Mitchell is both professional and personable and his relaxed confidence is absolutely contagious. This was my first surgery ever, and he and the Norman Center staff made me feel that this was just another day in the park -- but a park in the Florida sunshine, with palm trees and a great view of Tampa Bay! My positive experience began with a telephone call from Dr. Mitchell before my surgery was scheduled. I expressed a concern -- probably entirely unnecessarily -- regarding my thyroid nodules. He assured me and I thought little more about it. But when I was talking with the nurse the day of my surgery, I decided to mention it to her. She picked up my medical chart and showed me -- right across the front cover Dr. Mitchell had written my expressed desire about dealing with the nodules -- so no one could possibly miss it! That's a level of responsiveness to a patient's concern that I would never expect -- perhaps especially from an expert surgeon with a world-class resume like Dr. Mitchell's. Did I mention that he also invited me to call his cell phone any time if I had any questions? I was pleasantly surprised, on the day of surgery, to learn that Dr. Mitchell would be my surgeon. (I don't know if that was coincidence or another example of the Norman Center's patient-centric thoughtful planning.) I still laugh when I recall the pleasant, relaxed conversation my husband and I were having with Dr. Mitchell while he sat in a chair in my room. After discussing cities we'd all lived in, and his suggestions for local restaurants, he casually said something like, "What do you think? Should we go do this?" and off I went to surgery, practically laughing out loud at his great attitude! When he called me at my hotel that night to see how I was doing (another Norman Center routine) I was able to tell him, in all sincerity, that my husband and I truly regretted that we would have no reason to see him again. He agreed that being so quickly cured -- as my lab numbers showed!-- was good news for his patients but it meant he didn't get to see them again. There's one other thing I should mention. My late mother was diagnosed as hyperparathyroid in 1995 and nothing was done. Around 2003 she had a serious hypercalcemic crisis and was admitted to a hospital unaware of her prior diagnosis. After a week there, I took her to a major teaching hospital, where a fine endocrinologist immediately suspected a parathyroid adenoma. She had surgery with a well-regarded endocrine surgeon. Her surgery took more than five hours and kept her in the hospital for four days, during which she suffered a severely painful sore throat and husky voice. By contrast, in 2019, my surgery in Tampa took about 27 minutes, and I was out of the hospital and in the Florida sunshine 90 minutes later. My throat hurt only just enough to justify eating ice cream! Kudos to Dr. Mitchell and his Norman Center colleagues for transforming parathyroid surgery. They really do put their patients first.
Thank you for curing my disease that I had for 10 years. When the other doctors in Los Angeles kept telling me it was a symptomatic and all I needed to do was take high doses of vitamin D. After my negative scan no one could or would help figure out what it was. That is when I found you and the Norman parathyroid center. Thank you for believing in me and removing 2 bad glands that I carried for the past 10 years. I am so grateful to you and the wonderful nurses and staff for making this surgery as easy as possible and of course for curing me of this disease.
