Professional statement

Dr. Carroll is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist who joined the practice in 2011. After growing up in San Diego, she moved to the East Coast to complete her undergraduate education at the University of Virginia. She then returned to California and received her medical degree from the University of Southern California. Her internship and residency were completed at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. During her residency, the results of her head & neck research were published in several scientific journals. While she enjoyed the Pacific Northwest immensely, she returned home to Southern California to begin practicing Otolaryngology. She is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and the Los Angeles Head & Neck Society. She has a particular interest in the treatment of ear and hearing disorders, and has received extensive training in the field of Otology. This includes hearing loss, recurrent or chronic ear infections and dizziness. In addition, she has state of the art training in treatment of sinus diseases and is comfortable with techniques such as balloon sinuplasty and using image guidance in the operating room to help minimize risk in complex surgeries. Her approach to the treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders includes minimally invasive and small incision surgery to help reduce surgery recovery times. She also manages head & neck cancers and laryngeal disorders, such as hoarseness, vocal cord nodules and other causes of weak or changing voice. In addition to surgeries done in the operating room, she performs office procedures for nasal congestion, skin lesion removal and ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration biopsy. When she is not at the office, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, gardening, cooking, and hiking local trails.

I'm so glad I found out about ZocDoc. I got an appointment with Dr. Carroll next day and she was very thorough in explaining my situation. I liked how patient she was too to answer any of my questions. I woulddefinitely come back to see her if it means driving over an hour! :)

Couldn’t be happier. I had a bad experience with a handful of ENT’s with long wait times, terrible manner, and general rushing of patients. Dr Carroll was so kind and clear, I was in and out of her office all thingsconsidered in 45 minutes. I’ll be getting my tonsils removed by her and couldn’t feel more comfortable with a surgeon!

D, Carroll is an excellent professional and the staff is quite nice. Today was a long wait, over an hour. Usually the wait is not quite that long.

Friendly professional staff and doctor, good communication, nice bedside manner. I had never been to this Glendale Adventist location before, so navigating the parking situation and finding the office was a bit of a challenge -- I would recommendleaving some extra time to get there. All in all a positive experience.

She immediately identified my hearing problem and very soon was able to move me into the treatment room. She cleared a severe wax accumulation problem. Although I wear aids, I have not heard clearly for a year or so. Love the result.

Always a life saver when I am sick! Dr. Carroll assessed my tonsils as being problematic and causing issues and helped me monitor when it was time for them to be removed. When the time came I could not have wishedfor a better surgeon for it! She made me feel comfortable and helped me through any issues and gave advice on what to do to prevent any severe symptoms from arising! shes great!

When I first walked in, the waiting room was very crowded and I expected a long wait time, however, I was pleasantly surprised and only had to wait about 20 minutes. Her nurse, Liz, was very friendly and professional. Dr. Carrollwas very nice, professional and caring. I would highly recommend this office.

I felt very lucky to choose her as my ENT. I have a lot of health issues and need the best of doctors. I'm moving to LA and I got sick while on a visit and slipped into an appointment. Shehad great bedside manner and what I loved most is that she listened to me. She's the first doctor to listen to my whole medical history because I know what's important for them to know and what's not. Because of that I got blood work that I should have got long ago and when I get the results may save my life. It's clear she knows her field and anyone would be lucky to have her.

It was my first visit. The office staff was helpful. I did have to wait over an hour because the Dr. was doing a procedure which happens sometimes but not the best way to start a relationship with a new patient.I thought the Dr. was nice, knowledgeable and helpful. I would go back definitely.
