Dr. Li-Yu Mitchell values the individual relationships she develops in her practice. “Each patient has their own specific needs and I try to work in partnership with them to meet those needs.”
A career in healthcare has always been in Dr. Mitchell’s sights. After receiving a master’s degree in public health and working in the field for two years, she decided to become a physician. She chose family practice in order to effect change on a more personal level. “It’s very rewarding to be able to make a difference in the lives of my patients.”
