Dr. Dana Mitchell had her first eye exam with Dr. Richard Malara when she was in 4th grade. His emphasis on "Professional Eyecare with a Personal Touch" has inspired her journey towards becoming that kind of eye doctor. Born and raised in Baldwinsville, NY, she will be serving the community that she called home for so many years. She graduated from SUNY Oswego with a Bachelor of Science in biology and health science before following in Dr. Malara's footsteps at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Dr. Mitchell's new ideas and compassion for her patients make her a welcome addition to the Malara Eyecare family.
