I am glad he got his license taken away.Dr. Mitchell is this the worst doctor i have ever seen he is just a drug dealer with a license i live around here & i have been one of his patients an everyone around here knows that u can go see Dr.Mitchell & tell him what u want & he will give it to you i should know because i started seeing him when i was 17 & he gave me 120 hydrocodone & had me addicted to them & on them since April of this yr & i had to stop seeing him for myself & go see a doctor to help me off the hydrocodone since he wouldn't do anything to help me get off of them.Everyone around here sees him an all gets the same scripts which are hydrocodone,Xanax now tell me he is a great doc no he is not & a guy i use to date started seeing him when he was 18 an Dr. Mitchell had him on all of these scripts for no apart reason just because he asked for them & had him on them still & he is 26. he ruins peoples life with all of the scripts that he writes out.an if u notice that the only ppl that care that hes license got taken is all on hydrocodone because they know they cant go see another doc because no other doc will write them out a scripts like he does for no reason at all.

DR mitchell is the BEST i should know because i started seeing him when i was 17 & he gave me 120 hydrocodone & it was what I needed until I was able to have surgery, I cannot thank dr Mitchell enough for his kindness and wisdom in a time when no other dr would prescribe me anything for the pain I was in. I have hadn't surgery ( ten years) ago and would never consider another dr. I pray that dr Mitchell is reinstated to work again in Daingerfield to serve and aid others as he has helped me.

I think dr. Mitchells a good doc! Its BS the way they keep doing him, getting his license back and then take it again, and they just need to let him help his patients!!! The first comment that was made about the only people who are upset his license was removed is on hydrocodone is CRAP! Just because you have or had a problem does not mean everyone else does! Im not on pain pills or xanax and im upset his license is revoked. My point is there are few doctors who truly care and take the time for there patients, and dr mitchell is one of them! We need our doc back!!!

Nicole #1 needs a reality check! I've been a patient of Dr. Mitchell's for years now and I am not prescribed hydrocodone. Its time you are honest with yourself and take responsibility for your own addiction! I am sure you asked for the medication you were prescribed and said whatever necessary to obtain them!!! P.S. Same for your boyfriend!

I was a patient of dr mitchell as well, i blame the patients that get addicted, because it is not the doctors fault that your addicted, because yes u did ask for that, so dont blame it on the doctor. I hope he comes back, i miss him, he was a wonderful doctor...
