Dr. Carol E. Mallette
Board Certified Gastroenterologist
Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
I enjoy the variety of seeing patients in clinic as well as getting to be "hands on" when doing procedures. I also appreciate that many symptoms and diseases in GI are treatable so even if there's not a "cure" we can make quality of life better.
Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?
I actually enjoy the variety in gastroenterology allowing me to see patients with stomach ulcers, esophageal disease, or bowel symptoms all on the same day. I did do additional training in female-specific gastrointestinal disorders during my fellowship.
Where did you study?
Undergrad: Austin College, Medical School: Texas A&M, Internal Medicine Residency and Gastroenterology Fellowship: Brown University.
What certifications do you hold?
Board Certified in Gastroenterology.
What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy water skiing, travel, and camping with them. Also love watching my son play soccer and my daughter compete in gymnastics.
Do you have any special honors or recognitions in your medical career that you would like to share?
I have published articles in multiple medical journals and presented research at the American Gastroenterological Association annual meeting.
