Dr. Carroll takes the extra time I need to go over things so that I understand and can follow what our plan is. Due to processing disabilities she helps me by following strategies given like talking slower, writing things down and repeating, and allowing me time to get my questions out. She is very patient and listens well. I appreciate her willingness to really know me and understand my condition as well as comorbidities that I already had. She is awesome.

Dr. Carroll spent an amazing amount of time with me. She went over test results, answered every question I had, gave me options to medications and was very informative as to side effects and advantages and disadvantages of each. She is extremely knowledgeable about my disease and knows how to go about combating it the best she can. I have complete faith in her care and would recommend her to anyone.

dR. CARROLL WAS TOP NOTCH IN EVERY WAY SHE WAS CONCERNED AND WE HAD A THOROUGH DIALOGUE TO UNDERSTAND MY COMPLAINT THE EXAM WAS ALSO THOROUGH AND I FEEL LESS ANXIOUS ABOUT MY SITUATION AND ON A PATH TO FULL RECOVERY WITH A PAIN FREE FUTURE GIVEN HER ASTUTE CARE AND ADVICE. AS A MEDICAL SOCIOLOGIST AND HAVING WORKED IN AMCs FOR OVER 50 YEARS, I CAN SAY SHE WAS TOPS IN KNOWLEDGE, INTERACTION AND ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE, SOMEONE WHO I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I have struggled with migraines for over 20 years, 3-4 a week. I've been thrown around for years with no results and everyone trying to find what my migraines were a symptom of. my Dr here gave me 45 minutes of undivided attention and treated my migraines as my diagnosis. I've now been on medication for 2 weeks and have had noticeable improvements. shes changed my life. I'll never be able to thank her enough.
