Meet Dr. Matthew Carroll
Throughout school, I was always particularly drawn to the sciences. It seemed like real-life magic! In high school, I went to a health care oriented magnet school, so I was able to get more exposure to the medical field. From the first time I walked into a hospital and saw physicians help shepherd their patients through the healing process, I knew that is what I wanted to do.
I went to medical school at Baylor College of Medicine and then went to Cincinnati Children's for residency. While I started residency planning on doing outpatient pediatrics, towards the end of residency, my passion shifted to inpatient pediatrics. I enjoyed the complexity that comes with inpatient medicine and also getting to see my patients make such dramatic improvements over a relatively short period of time.
After completing residency, I stayed an additional year to serve as one of the program's Chief Residents and then I moved down to Fort Worth in 2014 to start work at Cook Children's. Being able to make a child smile and be goofy with them is one of my favorite parts of the job, as well as being able to work with so many caring and talented people.
When I'm not at work, I enjoy playing racquetball, eating out at restaurants, watching movies and spending time with my family.
