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.

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.

Communication with lab results and follow-up to questions is very poor. Often times repeated requests go unanswered. When the Dr's office does return a phone call, it is often to parrot what the Dr has scripted for the MA to recite. The ability to ask follow-up questions and then receive a answer is prolonged and clumsy.

this was my first visit. i am pretty healthy but did ask for referral to an ENT. i had to follow up twice to actually get the referral. my expectation was that i would have gotten it within 24 hours. also this office does not seem to be on board with the patient portal online tool. i expect that i can go there for my booking and follow up. if this doens't change, i will likely find another provider.

it was my first visit-I'm changing primary care physician. Though they sent me MyChart and the "system" knew it was my first visit, they did not tell me to come early and they did not provide the information form on MyChart so I could have filled it out ahead of time. Also, they did not inform me in advance that I should have notified Providence about the change. wasn't very happy with the administrative start to this new relationship

He was good in taking care of a problem immediately. Less than ideal was the follow-up. I was due to get info on a possible cancerous section of skin and no answer. They forgot to order PSA on my recent blood work so he took a sample during my visit. 10 days later, and with a call from me to the office asking for status on both issue and I still haven't heard back.
