Introduction

My name is Dr. Timothy Carroll, I have extensive experience in Pediatric Critical care, Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Hospital medicine. I hold dual adjunct faculty appointments. I'm an experienced expert witness for comprehensive case reviews.

I was heavily involved in intra-collegiate debate and took 2nd in the country in the 1996 CEDA national debate championships. I attended medical school at the University of Kansas in Kansas City, KS and trained in Pediatrics and Pediatric Critical Care at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, TX.

I have extensive clinical experience in Pediatric hospital medicine, Pediatric emergency medicine and Pediatric critical care. I practiced pediatric emergency medicine for 4 years at Children’s Medical Center Dallas which is the busiest pediatric ER in the country. I have been practicing pediatric critical care and hospital medicine for over 10 years and currently practice at Saint Francis Children’s in Tulsa, OK where I care for the sickest and most severely injured children in Oklahoma. I have extensive experience in all types of pediatric patients and therapies and have experience in both private and academic practice settings. This experience includes respiratory failure, ECMO, renal replacement therapy, congenital heart disease, ventilators, cardiac arrest and resuscitation, organ failure, trauma (including non-accidental trauma), intracranial hemorrhage and all kinds of infection.

I hold dual adjunct faculty appointments as Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University and actively train the pediatricians of Oklahoma. I have published multiple book chapters and papers on several key topics in peer reviewed major journals. I have a certificate in Patient Safety from the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins University. I am a frequently requested lecturer and a confident public speaker.

I am in good standing with the Oklahoma and Texas medical boards where I hold medical licenses and have no history of negative judgements or history of disciplinary actions of any kind. I have been performing legal reviews since 2018 and have testified successfully for multiple clients both plaintiff and defense on a multitude of topics. My goal is to provide comprehensive medical opinions for case reviews and legal proceedings. My clinical schedule is flexible, and I have plenty time to take on cases for review.
