Jason Mizell, MD, Joins Baptist Health Surgical Clinic of Central Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Baptist Health Surgical Clinic of Central Arkansas recently welcomed Jason Mizell, MD.

Dr. Mizell is a Louisiana native but was recruited to Little Rock after completing his training in colorectal surgery. He initially practiced at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and was active in education, training surgery residents and research. He recently made the transition to Baptist Health to focus more on his clinical practice.

While at UAMS, Dr. Mizell was the director of the junior and senior surgery clerkships for 10 years, and was later program director for the transitional year residency program for four years. In 2010, he created the Business of Medicine course to address the deficit in personal and business financial education for physicians, and to help them be more responsible with their finances. This curriculum has been highlighted on multiple national podcasts and blogs, and has been adapted for use at other universities throughout the U.S. 

As a result of his efforts, Dr. Mizell was awarded the White Coat Investor Financial Educator of the Year in 2020. He has published multiple papers related to physician financial education and has spoken throughout the U.S. to physicians on the Business of Medicine.

Although he plans to continue to teach on physician finance and well-being, he primarily will be utilizing his expertise in colorectal surgery to treat complex colorectal diseases and colorectal cancer. 

“My priorities are my faith, my family, and my job, and God has given me the opportunity to serve and minister to people through being a surgeon,” Dr. Mizell says. “Surgery, especially cancer related surgery, can be a scary event for patients. I want to do the very best I can to help patients through these difficult times, and take care of them the very best I can.”

Dr. Mizell and his wife, Jolie, have three children – Kathryn, Gavin and Asher. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, boating, hiking and Louisiana State University sports. He has participated in medical mission trips to Mexico, Turkey and Cambodia, and he and his wife lead a local Bible study group in their home.
