First of all, Dr. Carroll is esteemed by her fellow physicians. Second, I find her thoughtful and fully aware of my neuropathic condition. She converses with her patient as opposed to lecturing or simply telling. She also listens and is aware of what is behind what is said. Her recommendations I have found to be most helpful in my adaptation to my limitations.

I would give a higher number if it were available. Not only does Dr. Carroll work well with my husband who is sinking into dementia and is physically challenged, but she supports and coaches me as I have primary responsibility for my beloved husband. She and her PA, Kate Moran, empathize with the frustration, sadness and just plain ol' fatigue I feel sometimes. Even when I am not concise and stray off topic, they are kind. Both encourage me to use the mychart function to ask them questions and for advice. I can count on their prompt responses. My opinion about Dr. Carroll and PA Moran is the same when we use telehealth contact.
