Biography

Viewing himself as a source of information and care for his patients, Michael Carroll, M.D., chose a career in medicine because of the new challenges it continually offers. “I try to empathize with my patients while actively involving them in their own health care,” he says. “I truly enjoy talking to and getting to know the people I treat.”

Dr. Carroll earned his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Medicine in Omaha, Neb. He completed his internship and residency at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, and is board certified in internal medicine.

Away from his practice, Dr. Carroll enjoys time with his wife and two daughters. His hobbies include hiking, gardening and shopping for antiques.

Dr. Carroll entered the office [...] There was no introduction, no handshake, just him making faces (bugging out his eyes) at the diagnoses list I brought him. It was my first visit with him and I thought it appropriate to bring my medical history. Instead of focusing on the reason why I came to see him: 4 referrals and a prescription, he proceeded to ask probing questions about my [...] of several months ago. Unfortunately, it was like opening a can of worms: it was a surgery filled with many complications [...] He kept interrupting me and jumping up and down from his seat. When I would say something, he would discount it. [...] During the visit, I told him I didn't think we were a good match and that things were combative between us. He of course discounted it and said no, go home and think about it. I was extremely upset and agitated from his behavior during this office visit.

Your receptionists insist on seeing proof of insurance on each and every visit. This is total overkill. They should ask if any changes have been made. I see 5 different Doctors within the Providence system and they all have access to my file, which contains this information. It is redundant to keep asking.

He's a very nice person but our conversations feel a bit disjointed. However, their are many worse doctors out there who are both arrogant and detached. My doctor is neither.
