Dr. Austin Mitchell is a dedicated, board-certified physician at Brentwood Skin Clinic in Nashville, TN. Dr. Mitchell has been practicing dermatology since 2005. He first had the pleasure of working alongside his father, then moved on to own his own practice.
Dr. Mitchell had the chance to travel a lot as a child and grew up predominately in Memphis, TN, Alaska, Spain, and North Carolina before he eventually settled down for good in Nashville, TN. He received his medical degree from the University of Tennessee, Memphis and completed his residency at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York City.
When he's not in the office helping his patients reach their skin care goals, he enjoys spending time outdoors running, biking, and swimming. He also loves to read. Even more than that, however, he enjoys spending time with his wife of almost 30 years and their three children.
Dr. Mitchell values his patients and wants his neighbors to feel comfortable visiting his office, which is why he is always working to improve his Spanish skills so he can provide better service to surrounding Spanish-speaking communities.

Best dermatologist I’ve been to in Nashville/Brentwood area!
WOW! I had gone to see someone previously before coming in. I saw and spoke with that specialist a brief amount of time and it was one of those things where I left just as confused as when I went in lol. It was not clear to me at all. When I came HERE, from the front desk to my actual visit, everyone was fun, kind and welcoming. At a place like this you feel more seen and heard. I was givin a CLEAR plan, and a back up plan for the back up plan lol. I left feeling very happy & a lot less confused than I was previously. I also got my product I needed while I was there which was also nice, because sometimes picking up meds is a whole other situation! Overall I would def recommend!
I can't say enough about my positive first time visit. First of all, I was able to get in quickly thanks to the receptionist who returned my call and got me in the next day (due to a cancellation). The staff was friendly, the office was clean, and the doctor was on time, knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns. Two weeks post visit and I am already seeing improvements. I would highly recommend this doctor and practice.
Great dermatologist! Wonderful bedside manners!
TL;DR -- the level of communication and transparency is exceptional, scheduling was effortless, and the staff are professional yet easygoing. This is how visits with a physician *ought* to be. Full review: It's been a while since I've done a dermatology checkup and even though I know I shouldn't neglect it, I avoided it mainly because of the friction with scheduling I always seem to face. My primary care physician is at Vanderbilt, so I kind of always assumed I had to stay in the Vandy system for referrals. You can't book dermatologists via their fancy app, though, and it can be tough to find time during their workday to call. Suffice to say that my experience there has always been a headache, and my latest call was no different; when I called to book a 15-30 minute checkup with ANYONE in the entire Vandy Dermatology department, their next available appointment was more than 6 months from now. SIX. MONTHS. This was just the nudge I needed to search elsewhere, and luckily I found Dr Mitchell's practice. I was able to schedule an appointment online for 2 business days later (!!) at literally whatever time I wanted. Once in the examination room, Dr Mitchell and his assistant were all business (but extremely friendly and disarming) as he talked me through what he was seeing, what constitutes a concern vs. what's not a concern, his recommendations for any treatment options, and the associated costs for any/all of the treatments. Dr Mitchell and his staff are phenomenal and I look forward to referring the Brentwood Skin Clinic to anyone who will listen to me!
