Suggestions & Reviews for Lawrence MALLETTE MD
Initially I was very reluctant to see Dr. Mallette because it meant that my primany care physician, Dr. R, was unable to bring my thyroid condition under control using methimazole. I was also horrified by the prospect of having RAI treatment(s). One friend of mine had RAI a few years ago & soon found herself dealing with cancer under her tongue. She passed away a few weeks after the diagnosis.
At the insistence of my PCP, I finally gathered up my courage to call Dr.Mallette's office to schedule an appointment. It turns out that Dr. Mallette is one of the 3 best doctors I have ever seen. The others are the surgeon he recommended & my PCP who is my advocate. In my first visit, he helped me understand my prior medical reports & put things in perspective when I was very depressed by the possibilities that I might not see my kids grow up. He took the time to listen to my concerns and encouraged me to listen to what my body was telling me. I felt that I could ask him a lot of questions without feeling like an idiot.
It is now 5 weeks after the operation and I'm feeling much better than before. I can run on my treadmill instead of just walking. I can actually enjoy a cup of tea & not to worry about my heart pounding out of control. I can sleep much better at night. I really appreciate the copies of lab reports that he sent me. The recommended new dosage written on the reports helps keep my TSH & FT4 at an optimal level.

I would recommend Dr. Mallette to any patient searching for answers to difficult and unusual metabolic or endocrine diseases. He treats his patients with a genuine caring approach and yet such a professional. He viewed my medical problem with an open mind and has given me hope.
I am encouraged by the possibility that we may be able to control and understand the problems that I am having.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my opinion.

Dr. Mallette is wonderful! I had been struggling with symptoms of hypothyroidism for several years. Working with other doctors unsuccessfully. He is very up to date on the latest levels and treatment protocols. He doesn't just look at your blood/TSH levels, he listens to YOU and your symptoms! He is also very aware of the benefits of vitamin therapy. The wait in his office is rarely more than 15 minutes and he will spend as much time as you need in the exam room. He sends you a copy of your bloodwork and suggestions for changes within a week of your appointment. I highly recommend him!
