Introducing Dr. Hope Mitchell from Mitchell Dermatology

Introducing Dr. Hope Mitchell from Mitchell Dermatology
In this video, Dr. Mitchell talks about what got her into dermatology and why she loves treating patients who see her. Watch it to find out more.

Hello, my name is Dr. Hope Mitchell. I am the CEO of Mitchell Dermatology and a board-certified dermatologist who has been practicing dermatology for the past 25 years.

I enjoy treating patients of all ethnicities.

A couple of my passions are medical dermatology education and mentorship.

I pride myself on mentoring and giving back to those interested in pursuing careers in the medical field.

When I decided that I wanted to become a dermatologist, I noted many years ago that there were not many dermatologists that looked like me.

And in fact, during my training, skin of color piqued my interest.

I was interested in skin of color. And I decided to start my own practice because I wanted to treat patients who had skin of color conditions.

At Mitchell Dermatology, we see lots of skin conditions.

I see patients that have conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. I see lots of patients in my community that have skin of color.

What I find in those patients is that conditions can look quite different on skin of color, and so I pride myself in being able to diagnose and properly treat those patients.

We welcome new and returning patients at Mitchell Dermatology, come and see us, we would love to take care of whatever skin care needs and concerns that you have.


As a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Mitchell Dermatology, my team and I believe that you should accept nothing less than having healthy skin, hair, and nails and feeling confident and beautiful every single day.
