Professional, courteous, efficient staff and Dr. Carroll. Decor in waiting room and exam rooms more like a friend's living room. Chairs, tables, pictures, and magazines all high quality. Cookies, water and coffee all available to everyone in waiting room. The ambience and thoughtful touches make the experience so relaxing, you almost forget that you are waiting to see the doctor. Wish all my doctors followed her example. The expertise of Dr. Carroll is top notch and she is great!

I saw Dr. Carroll on the recommendation of my opthalmologist. My problem was excess tissue in my eyelids, causing a noticeable sag, and limiting my field of vision. Dr. Carroll performed a blepharoplasty, which not only improved my appearance, but also helped my vision and my dry eyes. I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Carroll was friendly, knowledgeable, and highly skilled, and i recommend her without reservation. The office staff, too, especially Kristen, were just superb.

Dr Carroll gives the time you need to clearly answer all your questions. You are not rushed. She has always taken the time to see me if necessary when I am there for another reason. I trust her judgement and would highly recommend her anyone.

I am very pleased with the surgery on my eyelids. I didn't realize how little I was seeing and am happy to be called "bright eyes" by some of my friends. The scar is barely visiable and it will probably improve in days to come. Thank you Dr. Carroll.

Dr. Carroll has earned my 5 star respect. My mother had to go thru this surgery and was terrified. Dr. Carroll sat and talked and explained every move that was to happen. After years of trying to talk her into the surgery she was calm enough and had it done. The surgery was exactually as she was told. We are all extremely happy from the out come and recommend Dr. Carroll to all others in need.

Very impressed with everything about Dr Carroll and her office. Staff was great, Dr Carroll has great bedside manners. Explained everything and made sure I understood what she was saying. The minor surgery was very successful and I couldn't be more satisfied.
Mooresville, NC |
Dr. Carroll was very caring and careful. I enjoyed meeting her and trusted her completely with my surgery. Her office staff is wonderful ! Would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Carroll is absolutely awesome and the best Dr I have had to do surgery . Very professional and friendly she explained in detail the surgery. I told her that I think she walks on water. Had no pain at all from my surgery. If you need a great Dr she is the one I highly recommend. Wish all my Drs were like her.

Last week, Dr. Carroll did an external tear duct surgery for me. She told me ahead of time exactly what to expect and carefully explained the procedures she'd follow in surgery. On day of surgery, she again told me what she'd do. When the bandage came off the next day, there was no bruising and only very minor swelling. She's very "patient friendly" and takes pride in her work. I'm moving out of town, but my husband & I agree that we will return to Hickory should we need to see a dr again.

everything went super smooth and fast from making appointments to the surgery itself. They took care of all insurance paperwork etc , After the eyelid surgery I can see much better, no more eyelid infections and people are surprised being able to finally see my whole eyes. I can recommend this dr to anyone suffering from overhanging eyelids obscuring your view.
in Mooresville, NC |
I was referred to Dr Carroll by my local ophthalmologist Dr Patel (whom I trust completely) I could not have been more pleased with the results. My wife says it makes me look years younger. This problem was medically necessary not for cosmetic reasons, but the results are the same. I would encourage anyone needing eye surgery to highly consider Dr Carroll.
in Lenoir, NC |
Dr. Carroll is very nice and she did a great job with an eye procedure that I needed. Her staff was very helpful and kind. I would definitely go back to her and recommend her to anyone.

Outstanding staff and very professional. Dr. Carroll was very affirming and personal. Day of surgery very understanding about questions. She was engaging with family. She stayed with us as our pastor prayed for the surgery. Followup visits very prompt and efficient.
in Lincolnton, NC |
She was very good at making me feel secure with my surgery. She removed a basil cell carcinoma of my lower eyelid. She had to use tissue from my left eye and right eye lid to replace area that she had to remove because of the carcinoma. Her and her staff have all been very supportive during the visit before and after surgery. My son was impressed with her also. She seems to be very knowledgeable.

I would recommend Dr Carroll to my friends and family, I have already recommended her to a friend . The office staff couldn't have been any better to me and my husband. I made a mistake with my meds she could it right away. So thank for using her to do my surgery.

I highly recommend Dr. Carroll to any and all who need ophthalmic work done. It was like having a concierge doctor: appointments were easy to schedule, waiting time was short, the office was comfortable and inviting, and the staff was top notch - friendly and efficient. Dr. Carroll spent as much time with me as I needed, explained the procedure fully, and answered all my questions to my satisfaction.
