I am committed to providing individualized and compassionate care to my patients. I feel it is important to first educate my patients about their eye disorders and then discuss any goals or expectations we both may have. With this mutual foundation, we can then work together to formulate a treatment plan for the best patient outcomes. Effective communication is at the core of this endeavor, and it allows me to build trusting and lasting relationships with my patients. I feel incredibly privileged to practice ophthalmology, a field that carries significant impact in our patients’ daily lives, and my goal is to continue to earn that privilege every day.

Froedtert continues to be my "go to" for my health care needs. Dr Carballo Is an excellent addition to the Eye Center staff. She provided clear explanation of of a planned eye surgery and answered all our questions.
Dr Carballo was outstanding, as well as her staff! She took time to discuss issues and my concerns in a very caring and helpful way. She was friendly, patient, knowledgable, and professional. I couldn't ask for a better doctor and staff!!!
Dr. Carballo is exceptional. She is extremely patient every step of the way and she explains things in a way thats easy to understand. She seems very determined to get the job done correctly the first time. And If something does go wrong, she Is there next to you every step of the way to get you back on track. The whole process was simple and easy because of her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
She was excellent and did a wonderful job walking me through the issue I had come in with and gave a detailed description of the problem, the treatment and what to expect with pain and follow up. The staff was very kind and helpful.
