Qualifications and Experience
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.
Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Concerned, thorough and speaks clearly to the patient
Dr Carroll's bedside manner is very caring and professional - I definitely feel comfortable in her care.
I thought Dr. Carroll was very professional and helpful. I will continue to see her as long as I need to.
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. Carroll was very nice, professional and caring. I would highly recommend this office.
She was very thorough with questions made and her explaining wasn't short handed.
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. She had 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.
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 wished for 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!
The wait was a little longer than I would have liked but the doctor was sup r attentive and listened to all of my questions and concerns.
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.
Appointment went really well. The doctor is very knowledgeable and helped me understand what was the cause of my problem
Smart and capable. And, I actually saw the doctor... not a nurse.
Very professional, clean and nice!
