I appreciate Dr. Carroll’s professionalism, her specialized focus and knowledge of my medical issue. I appreciate that, while she offered her medical opinion of my condition, that she also wanted to conduct further tests to rule other other issues. Both Dr. Carroll and Kathryn Moran encouraged my questions, and while both were very busy, I did not feel that they rushed me through my appointment.

Dr. Carroll has been very helpful in assisting me with getting a plan together to address the complex variety of aura I get with migraine. Although it is often still challenging, my life is completely different from a year ago when I first became her patient. In addition to her clinical knowledge and skills, she has a great way of dealing with patients. She treats you as a person with a condition not a condition that happens to be housed in a human, if that makes sense. She is patient and has great communication skills. It is worth traveling three hours each way for my appointments.

Dr. Carroll rephrased what I’d said, so I knew she understood what I’d told her and offered a variety of options to try. She gave me questions to bring to my other specialists and responded to questions my other specialists had raised. Dr. Carroll did not downplay how debilitating my symptoms are, nor did she give an unrealistically cheery outlook on trying new treatments, but came up with steps we could try to improve my quality of life.

She helps to navigate through the problems and sets up a plan to follow. She is so careful to not miss a step in what she is doing. She is also so easy to talk to and I never feel as if I’m being rushed out. She takes all the time to answer my questions and give me guidance. She is absolutely the best doctor I’ve had
