James D. Mitchell, MD

“I was initially drawn to oncology by the special relationships oncologists develop with patients and their families. Throughout my career, I have been humbled by the strength and fortitude of those facing cancer, and I have been honored to be a part of their treatment team. It is my goal to work with patients and families to develop an individualized, effective treatment plan within the framework of their lives. I hope to build long-term relationships that last throughout the continuum of treatment and cancer survivorship.”
