About me
My name is Steve Carroll and I am a recent graduate (June 2012) from the Emergency Medicine Residency at San Antonio Military Medical Center (formerly Brooke Army Medical Center) in San Antonio, Texas. I grew up in Downingtown, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia) where I was an EMT-B for 10 years before starting residency. I went to Notre Dame (GO IRISH!) followed by medical school at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
