About William Mitchell, MD

William Mitchell, MD, is a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for patients with all kinds of thoracic cancer, including lung cancer, mesothelioma and thymomas.

Dr. Mitchell is passionate about educating future generations of doctors and integrating palliative care into all levels of patient care.
