Watch Dr. Mitchell's Provider Interview
Dr. T.J. Mitchell believes patients deserve a doctor who will be thorough and diligent and who relates to them on an individual level — something he works to achieve with every patient at every visit. He is very excited to meet the wonderful people in our area and get the chance to serve as their physician.
Early in his undergraduate college career, Dr. Mitchell volunteered at his hometown hospital and had a great experience interacting with patients and healthcare team members, sparking his interest in the field of medicine. He also enjoyed science classes going through school. Medicine seemed like the perfect profession, a blend of the sciences and interacting with people, and ultimately making a difference for others.
Dr. Mitchell is originally from Morristown and has lived in East Tennessee his whole life. He completed his undergraduate and medical education at ETSU. The region is home for Dr. Mitchell, and ETSU's Quillen College of Medicine has become a part of his family. ETSU Health offers the opportunity for him to practice medicine in an area he loves, while also helping train the next generation of physicians.
He enjoys all the outdoor activities that our region has to offer and is a big baseball fan – his team being the Atlanta Braves. He also supports the ETSU Bucs, so say hi if you see him out and about at ETSU sporting events!
