"Dr. Rana was prompt and answered all my questions. I was back to work in a few days."


Dr Mitchell performed a Carotid Artery cleaning on my Right side. Went great! Still experiencing some minor "side effects" to be expected. Will have him do the left side when he deems the proper time. Would totally recommend!

Sandy Decz

Dr. Mitchell was going to take my appendix and found some unexpected issues which also had to be removed and he was excellent, all the raving about him by the hospital staff was not let down, he has an excellent bedside manner and wants hIs patients to be as comfortable as possible he took great care of my surgery and making me feel comfortable with everything that’s was going on and what happened as I was terrified it being my fist surgery. Would absolutely recommend him.
