I had to cancel my surgery because his admin staff are too incompetent and rude to handle the basic functional aspects of running an office, and I don't have time to deal with repeated calls that I cannot return due to problems with the office phone system and receptionists who hang up on you. All this just to try to resolve the problem of a missing referral, which I brought with me to the first visit and staff declined.

The best!! Can't recommend this doctor enough! He operated on my ganglion cyst in my wrist and I'm so very pleased.
in Long Grove, IL |
Dr. Carroll has performed 3 surgeries on me-1 on a tennis elbow and 2 on a badly shattered wrist. His expertise and knowledge are unsurpassed; therefore, I have had excellent results, including optimal function as well as minimal scarring. Dr Carroll takes the time to listen to my questions and provides clear answers. He also has very thorough follow-up. I totally trust his judgment and would highly recommend him.

Dr Carroll is very professional, courteous, and kind. He takes a great deal of time listening to your complaints. I went to see Dr. Carroll for a growth on my finger. He removed the growth. He provided excellent post-op care and initial follow-up. Then after undergoing the recommended physical therapy, when I came back for my last follow-up visit, he could not tell where the incision was!! It had healed up perfectly, with no scar.

FOUND DR, CARROLL TO BE EXCELLECT HAND ORTHOPEDIST. I FALL AT WORK AND RECEIVED FOUR SURGERY TO LEFT HAND IN WHICH DR CARROLL CORRECTED. IF THIS INJURY TO MY LEFT HAND WAS NOT CORRECTED I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO RETURN TO WORK. THANK GOD FOR DR CARROLL AND HIS HEALING HANDS
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Carroll did an outstanding job fixing a tendon problem that was causing trigger finger and a lot of discomfort. I had a short surgery where he explained everything and came away without any pain and a very quick recovery. I have almost no scar, whatsoever, at only one week after surgery. He is truly a gifted hand surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Carroll.
in Lemont, IL |
I went in for tennis elbow was given a $20 bracelet to wear, and it didn't work, the pain got worse. What's worst about this experience is the medical bill I stuck with for $450. A xRay which I was told that was billed as out patience procedure. Spoke to the office manager was talked down like a 2 year old.
