Why choose The Country Doctor for your care?
  • You see the same doctor at each office and hospital visit, meaning you see a doctor who is familiar with your care.
  • Dr. David Mitchell cares for inpatients and outpatients. Dr. David Mitchell also sees skilled nursing home patients at some nursing homes. The Country Doctor balances classic family medicine care with modern technology.
  • Familiarity and reassurance. Simply having a familiar person care for you in the office and hospital is very rewarding to the patient and the physician. Seeing the same doctor means a decreased medication error rate and a high quality of care.
  • Stability. Dr. David Mitchell grew up in the Belleville/Shiloh area. Dr. David Mitchell has cared for patients at the same location since 2002 and has been a physician since 1999. Dr. David Mitchell survived the 2004 exodus of doctors and built a strong practice of quality patients.
  • Cost savings. The Country Doctor is the first St. Clair County practice to publish its common fee schedule. By having a low overhead, the Country Doctor helps the patients save money.
  • Saturday and flexible hours. Saturday hours save you time and money, by not going to the emergency department for a urinary tract infection or a sinus infection.
  • Email is available at countrydoctorltd@gmail.com. Feel free to e-mail for non same day appointments and nonurgent questions.
  • Common vaccines are in stock, including meningitis, shingles, pneumonia, seasonal flu, tetanus/pertussis, and hepatitis A/B.
  • In-office lab testing is available with almost immediate results, including for urinalysis, screening for diabetes with a Hemoglobin A1C, and INR coagulation monitoring for patients on warfarin/coumadin. Full lipid/cholesterol panels with glucose testing for annual insurance physicals with 5 minute results are available.

The Country Doctor welcomes the patients who will choose the same doctor for their inpatient and outpatient care in an independent practice setting.

When an established patient calls after hours for an urgent health concern, the patient talks to Dr. David Mitchell. The exchange number is for established patients and health care workers. If you have an after hours urgent question or concern, please call 277-3214. If it is important enough to call Dr. Mitchell, then you must be seen in the office within 48 hours for an evaluation of your medical concern. Please note that a board certified physician, Dr. David Mitchell, personally calls you back for your concern.

Dr. David Mitchell is the only physician to start a solo practice since 2002 and to maintain independence. Dr. David Mitchell continues to see inpatients at the local Belleville, Shiloh, and soon O'Fallon hospitals. The Country Doctor also sees skilled nursing home patients and regular nursing home patients, including at Rosewood, Memorial Care Center, Four Fountains, and a few other facilities. Dr. David Mitchell believes in continuity of care in an independent setting.

Dr. David Mitchell is the first solo, independent physician to admit a patient to the new Shiloh Memorial Hospital East. Dr. David Mitchell is one of five private physicians at Saint Elizabeth's Hospital, one of approximately six family physicians at the Main Memorial Hospital, and one of approximately four family physicians at the Memorial Hospital East, who cares for his own patients. Being listed on staff at a hospital does not mean that your regular physician will see you for your inpatient care.

For years the hospitalists, despite having multi million dollar computer systems and lists of admitting physicians, continue to see incorrectly emergency department and transfer patients who are my regular office patients and who have Dr. David Mitchell listed as the primary care physician in the computer. This happens 5-10 times a year and disrupts continuity of care. It takes less than a minute to look in the computer for the primary care physician and to notify admitting that Dr. David Mitchell should be seeing the patient. I am challenging any hospitalist, who sees one of my regular patients, to donate $200 to the Belleville Area Humane society for each inpatient encounter.
