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.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Carroll is far and away the very best doctor I have had in my 71 years. He always gives me his complete attention and caring and I have always left there feeling better about the state of my health.

09/21/2017
Dr. Carroll has usually been pretty good and interacted well. On this visit, however, he was irritable, quick to be negative, and frequently interrupted me in a somewhat angry way. He discounted my opinion and did not let me explain some of my thoughts and concerns in sufficient detail.

09/12/2017
I have had some serious health problems in the past approx 8 yrs. [...] What should have been my last 10 yrs of working turned into multiple very unpleasant physical (which then affects mental) decade. Sadly I would say 4 out of 5 drs I saw during this were disinterested, rushed, & I sometimes wondered about their qualifications. So I expected to run into another such as those, probably have to visit 2 or 3 and decide which was a little interested and knowledgeable. So it was a VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE that my visit with Dr Carroll was caring, competent and willing to discuss/explain/listen. I was actually surprised to have a good dr visit.

I have no complaints. I was seen quickly, and everything taken care of. The receptionist went out of her way to make sure my [...] card/coverage was correct (I had the wrong card with me, the other was at home). It was all very efficient and smooth without being felt like I was in a robotic processing plant.

100

02/07/2017
I Love Dr. Carroll. I will not see any other provider other than him. He listens and is practical with his diagnosis and wants and needs of his patients. I feel that other providers could take a page from his book and treat the patient as a person and not just another patient on their workque
100

01/24/2017
Dr. Carroll has been PCP for many years. We openly dialogue on my health care needs and he insisted that I have a biopsy when I thought it wasnt necessary. PSA was low, but he insisted that I do it. He was right, cancer was found and treated immediately. For that I'm very much appreciated his concern and making sure I follow through.

Dr. Carroll has been my Doctor for a very long time. At least 16 years, maybe more. We have a wonderful rapport. I trust him and know that he cares and can and will work with me. The nurse who brought me in was "subbing" for another who was sick, she was fabulous! The medical technician who gave me two shots was fabulous also. You have great people.

100

12/28/2016
You may have to wait a little longer for Dr. Carroll but that is only bc he takes the time with each patient that is needed. He is never rushed (although I know he is very busy) to listen to me. I am so grateful to have such an excellent doctor for not just myself, but my parents and now my daughter. When I call in the office, your staff is also excellent and accommodates my needs (if that is getting in right away or getting a call back about a question). Dr. Carroll's regular nurse is very caring and professional too.
100

12/21/2016

There was confusion about why I was making an appointment. i had asked for the once a year [...] Wellness visit like last year but was told my provider does his own wellness visits. Both at the reception desk and with the nurse they said I was there for a physical. No, the Wellness visit.
