John H. Mitchell, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

There are a few principles I have always believed in and continue to practice daily:

  1. If the physician listens to his patient, 90% of the time, he will be told of the diagnosis.
  2. Treat the patient, not the labs or the diagnostic studies.
  3. The best care comes when you care.
  4. There should be a doctor, who has patients whom he knows and cares for as a Shepherd would guide his flock. Let me lead you to better health and wellness.
