Dr. R.Mitchell was very welcoming and put me at ease right away. He was very thorough and did a great job of explaining the options and his recommendations. The front office were also great.

He did my procedure UFE and the results were amazing after I was suffering from severe bleeding and big fibroid in the uterus, and now the situation is very normal and I have returned to normal life, thank you 🧡.

After many years of suffering from fibroids, my doctor suggested major surgery. I started to look for a second opinion, I came across the Atlanta Fibroid Center and immediately reached out. From the first phone call to after the procedure and even the follow-up, I felt included in every decision and step of having the UFE procedure. I’m 3 months post-procedure and my whole life has changed. So again thank you Atlanta Fibroid Center I can enjoy life to the fullest now.
