He is board certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine. He attended medical school at the University of Virginia, where he was awarded the William Herndon Scholarship for Leadership in Medicine. Afterwards, he completed an internal medicine internship at the Medical College of Virginia, and then entered the Air Force as a flight surgeon. He was stationed at Pope Air Force Base in Fayetteville, NC for four years. While there, he deployed to Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait in 2007, where he served for six months as commander of the flight medicine clinic.

He also flew on 7 combat missions into Iraq to help evacuate wounded soldiers.
He left the Air Force in 2010 and started an anesthesiology residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. While still a resident, he published a book chapter on addiction in the chronic pain patient and wrote a paper on clinical predictors of success in superior hypogastric plexus blocks, published in a peer-reviewed journal. He also presented research at multiple national medical society meetings, and was awarded a “top resident research” honor by the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Management. Dr. Kroll then completed a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was part of the first fellow class to develop and integrate ultrasound guided therapies into pain management to include joint, spine, and platelet rich plasma injections. He also continued to participate in research and collaborated on a project accepted for presentation at a national pain medicine conference.
