Too Small to Fail – Mitchell Medical Group’s Secret to Care
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything! Healthcare will never be the same – maybe it can be even better!
You probably remember all too well the slogan about the big banks and insurance companies: “they are too big to fail” – meaning if the government doesn’t bail them out the financial system will be in ruins. The end results: not so bad for banks and insurers, not so great for the average family.
At Mitchell Medical Group, Dr. Ricki and Dr. Dean Mitchell and our dedicated staff are preparing for medical care in the post-COVID-19 era. The following are the services we will be offering and the precautions we are taking to ensure your safety.
Because we are a small, independent office (not owned by a hospital), we have the flexibility to make sure our services are delivered in a very conservative way: meaning, just a few patients seen every hour and not more than one person in the waiting room (possibly with a family member) at any time.
Our exam rooms are also being redesigned to ensure social distancing during the visits and the staff and the patient will have protective masks and gloves to ensure the highest level of protection.
In addition, our exam rooms will have Negative Pressure Machines that remove particles from the air, including viruses, to ensure the safest possible visit.
As an Immunologist, I know how important it is to properly interpret immune testing for a virus or bacteria.
There will be 2 levels of testing:
Screening Rapid Nasal Swab Testing
This test will tell you whether you are infected or have not been infected with the COVID-19 virus. This is important to the degree that if you are negative you are safe and not infective to others based on current information. A positive test indicates current infection and immediate isolation.
Antibody Testing Through a Fingerstick
This test will be extremely important in determining if you have been exposed to COVID-19 virus and specifically if you have developed immunity or are still in the midst of fighting the infection. Dr. Ricki and Dr. Dean Mitchell will discuss the significance of these results in your ability to go back to work, school or engage in more public places.
Telemedicine – Virtual Healthcare
You have been hearing about telemedicine but at Mitchell Medical Group we have been using telemedicine for long distance education consultations for over a year. The feedback we have been getting has been quite positive. The experience can be just like being in the office through Zoom, Skype or Facetime.
- You don’t have to travel long distances to come into the office for essentially a consultation or just to review lab studies.
- No worrying even for New Yorkers that they are running late from the subway, buses or taxis. With access to a computer or phone you are seen right on time.
- You will have access to all Mitchell Medical Group’s handouts and services like prescriptions.

IV Vitamin Therapy, Gamma Globulin Shots & Allergy Drops
We will continue our state-of-the-art vitamin treatments including high dose Vitamin C infusions and energy and anti-inflammatory injections. This may be more important than ever to keep your immune system strong during this pandemic.
Fortunately, for our patients, Dr. Mitchell is continuing to treat patients with severe food allergies and environmental allergies with his home-based sublingual allergy drops; they are incredibly safe and proven to be effective.
Our unique specialty to treat Candida patients also with sublingual drops at home can make these patients enjoy a better quality of life and more dietary choices.
