Indicated an onsite appointment should be able to be set up over the next few weeks. Turns out it will be a month or more. Not a big issue but information was not correct.

not my focus but was fine

Dr. Carroll was the most overall impressive dr. We have ever met.
Jul 16, 2020
This was my first visit with the care provider and I was pleased with the way the meeting went and the tests he recommended for me. With regard to the time spent I would have liked to talk more about other areas related to my condition like nutritional supplements but understand he has thousands of patients and time is at a premium. Because much of my healthcare has been received outside of the UCSF system my available medical history was probably limited to the recent questionares I completed on MyChart.

Care provider did not use internet--he phoned me--which was GREAT.

Other doctors should be visible on the call. They are important too!

Dr. Carroll is an exceptional physician. Not only is he very knowledgeable and professional he's very kind and listens to you and if you have concerns he'll eases your concerns. Very delighted to have been referred to him.

I had to figure it out a bit but we did it!

Considering Dr. Carroll's specialty I would hope that I wouldn't have to recommend him to friends and family since I would prefer that they remain cancer-free

Dr Carroll is very easy to understand and is a true professional in his field. I'm very comfortable with all of his recommendations and decisions.

Telehealth works so well it should become the standard and replace in-person visits when all test results are available.

I look forward to working with the doctor to complete my treatments

I have already referred several people with same diagnosis and they were very pleased that they choose UCSF.

Very impressive!

Generally good relationships established. There was however a wait for the doctor to come to the examining room. Once in my discussions with the doctor(s) and the information with which I was provided could have benefitted from a more relaxed pace.

There were no medications or follow since this was a second opinion visit

very fortunate to have this Dr for my medical needs.

Dr. Carroll was excellent in his help to guide me to a medical solution to my present problem.
Aug 20, 2019
It would help if Dr. Carroll could speak a little slower and double check what is being understood. It is a lot of info all at once and hard for the non-practitioner to digest (even though I consider myself pretty well informed)
Aug 17, 2019
Very professional.

Dr. Carroll is at the pinnacle of providers and is a role model for other physicians. He was punctual very familiar with the results of recent studies able to synthesize all the data into a recommended course of action in a smooth and understandable manner that instilled confidence in me and my wife. He has a personable approach in which he imparts a sense of you being the most important patient he has to care for in his practice. I'm grateful that he has been available to help me through what otherwise would have been a scary process in arriving at a treatment plan.

Dr. Carroll is the best provider anyone could hope to have overseeing their diagnosis and treatment. He epitomizes the model of an exceptional provider that all providers should strive to achieve.

Dr. Carroll is phenomenal! Not only is he extremely knowledgable and talented but in addition he tries to be very helpful in resolving any issues that I have..

During an examination before seeing Dr Carroll a physician asked about nodules then gave no indication of why he asked that question.He seemed to act as if his job was to oversee his student and not about me.This physician was not Dr Carroll

I consider myself very lucky to be in Dr. Carroll's care.
Apr 09, 2019
stellar care from a brilliant clinician
Apr 07, 2019
Dr. Carroll seems very competent. The entire UCSF process for handling me as a patient is quite bad and makes me strongly hesitate to recommend anybody to UCSF.
Apr 06, 2019
l believe Dr Carroll saved my life and he and his outstanding team will continue to offer me the best care there is.
Apr 02, 2019
Great physician with a subtle sense of humor.
Mar 23, 2019
The doctor could have spent more time and explained the condition is layman's terms.

After 10 minutes Dr. Carroll left the consulting room to get the opinion of another doctor about a crucial topic: whether the test result showing I have a cancer tumor on my vertebra was a false positive. He never returned or sent word about my case to me. I asked two different assistants to help me. They said they would find out the situation. They did not return or give me information. Altogether I spent 45 minutes waiting for Dr. Carroll to return. He did not. Nor has he sent me any information about the topic he said he would investigate for me. Perhaps something important delayed him. If so he should have sent me word. Also he should have informed after the visit what happened. His notes about the visit contain no mention of the matter he said he would investigate for me. I think he is probably an excellent doctor but he treated me dreadfully.

Again I wish I could spend all day talking with staff and Dr. but also know Dr Carroll and staff are in high demand so I try and keep small talk with lesser staff not that everyone is not important just feel receptionist vitals nurse techs etc probably have a little more time to chit chat.
Jan 10, 2019
Excellent medical care and concern.
Dec 26, 2018
I did not get a closure on the type of treatment we are going to follow in my case though three options of treatments for my disease was suggested. Eventhough we discussed about the three methods with individual experts in those areas during my visit was NOT able to finally conclude on this since I was not able to meet with Dr. Carroll after all the discussions with experts. Probably will have to schedule another appt. for this purpose now.
Dec 03, 2018
the antibiotics needed in preparation for my next procedure were not ordered
Nov 27, 2018
He just doesn't have much time. He stood up to leave after approximately 1:00 minute. I asked him to spend a little more time with me and he spent another couple of minutes.
