Review of Dr. Carroll IV

- in Chicago, IL |

As a busy working pianist in Chicago, I was in trouble when I slipped and separated a ligament in my left thumb. Worried that I might not play again, I was referred by great friends in medicine to Dr. Carroll IV. His expertise, demeanor and calm assurances, matched with his technical skills, had me back playing the repertoire that "pays the bills" within a very abbreviated time window. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing such delicate attention. Paul D Dykstra, Chicago

Review of Dr. Carroll IV

- in Northbrook, IL |

I was treated by Dr. Carroll for a broken finger and my wife was treated for a broken wrist a year earlier. Both of us were extremely pleased with his treatment, the personal attention, promptness of the appointments and his professionalism. We both highly recommend Dr. Charles Carroll IV.

Review of Dr. Carroll IV

- in Chicago, IL |

Dr. Carroll recently performed carpal tunnel release surgery on my left hand (my very dominant hand). The previously constant pain and tingling was gone in 24 hours and my recovery has been well monitored by both him and his staff. He takes time with his patients, explaining medical options thoroughly and understandably. He is caring, thoughtful and above all, is an amazing surgeon.

Review of Dr. Carroll IV

- in Palos Heights , IN |

I had my right hand operated on by Dr Carroll, for carpal tunnel syndrome. He was excellent! Did all the tests first, then had out patient surgery. It was very easy. This was my second carpal tunnel surgery, and the outcome from Dr Carroll was by far better than my first carpal tunnel surgery 8 years ago. Far less painful, and a better recovery. After 6 weeks I am 95% restored.

Review of Dr. Carroll IV

-Chicago, IL |

I've been to Dr. Carroll now on 3 different occasions. I play a lot of sports and have seen Dr. Carroll for three different broken fingers. He's always seen me in a timely manner and he performed surgery on one of my broken fingers. He did a great job and I highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Ghate

- in IL, IL |

Dr. Ghate is the BEST !!! He replaced both my knees ( 2017 & 2018) and the outcome could not have been better! He extremely knowledgeable, conscientious, kind and caring. I never asked him one question he did not competently answer. He knows his stuff and is worthy of your full trust. In addition his assistants, Heidi and Amanda are experts at what they do. All calls, concerns, questions answered with professionalism and kindness. I suggest you look no further...Dr. Ghate is THE BEST !!!!

Review of Dr. Carroll IV


I partially tore my left distal bicep tendon in January. Dr. Carroll accurately diagnosed the problem, explained the risks of surgery, and recommended more conservative treatment. He explained the mechanics of the injury and what I should and should not do to rehabilitate the arm as best as possible. Now, four months later, instead of being in painful post-surgical rehab, my left arm is 100% functional with no pain. Dr. Carroll gave excellent and practical treatment of a serious injury.

Review of Dr. Mirkovic

- in Culver IN |

I am walking and working today because of Dr. Mirkovic's expertise in spinal surgery. I have very little pain. He is incredibly kind and caring and so are his staff members. I'm an RN Director of Nursing and would highly recommend him to anyone needing back surgery. It takes me two and a half hours to get from my home in Indiana to his office near Northwestern Hospital in Chicago but it is worth the drive. I wouldn't go to anyone else. You only have one back. He's the best!
