Sheila J. Carroll, M.D.
My clinical interests include the fetal and post-natal diagnosis of congenital heart disease and the management of patients after open heart surgery and cardiac catheterization. It is especially gratifying to be able to work closely with families and participate in optimizing the care of infants, children and adolescents with heart disease.
