Fun Facts

The most exotic or interesting place Dr. Carroll has lived is Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, when she was in elementary school. Something many people may not know about her is she was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Even as a child, she knew she wanted to be a doctor. She loved science and learning about the human body and knew she wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. Dr. Carroll’s one guilty pleasure is watching reality television.

I believe the highest quality care is accomplished when working together with the patient as a team. I do my best to make my patients feel comfortable and to establish patient relationships built around trust and open communication so I can help to address healthcare concerns together with my patients. I'm an advocate for women's health, not only for each individual but also for their entire families and society at large.
