Carole Nasralla, MD – Medical Director and Prenatal Care Provider:

As the daughter of missionaries, Carole spent much of her youth living in India and traveling around the world. She returned to the U.S. for college, grad school, and eventually on to medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She completed her residency in family medicine at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, IL, with an emphasis in women’s health and obstetrics.

Carole and her family moved to Pagosa Springs in 2000. Since living here, she has worked at a variety of clinics, and currently works part-time at the Pagosa Medical Group as well as directing the prenatal clinic at Aspire. Carole has a passion for underserved communities and has traveled to Guatemala the past several years to serve the Mayan community there.
