Mr. Terry E. Barnard
Chairman, Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles 2 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., SE Suite 458 Balcony Level, East Tower Atlanta, GA 30334-490
Dear Chairman Barnard:
It is with great sadness and humble sincerity that I write this letter in support of the character of an amazing person; Dr. Tyrone Malloy. He has been the family doctor, both Obstetrician and Gynecologist for four generations of women in our family. The dates below are to the best of my memory.
I met him in the late 1970's when he diagnosed and successfully treated my mother's cancer. She is now 92 years old and Dr. Malloy still makes time in his busy schedule to visit her regularly in an assisted living home, even though officially she is no longer his patient.
He has been my OB/GYN since that same time and he has delivered our three children. The last was born just as Desert Storm began; Dr. Malloy made special arrangements in his schedule to deliver her before leaving to serve his country. He made that special effort because I was living abroad and I flew to the United States to have him deliver that child because of my confidence in his medical expertise.
On occasion he discussed his concern for men's health, outside of the military and the workplace; saying that men did not have routine check ups like women and needed to have early detection of prostate issues. He was concerned about everyone in a very genuine way.
He was Gynecologist to another sister, and then became the Obstetrician to her daughter. He later delivered her first grandchild.
When another sister had some internal problems that were complicated by cancerous growths, he gave her excellent treatment and referred her to the best supporting specialists. He visited her regularly during her 4-year struggle with the disease. After finishing his rounds with his other patients, he would give her words of comfort that can only have meaning when coming from someone that you trust and respect. She was no longer a patient at this time; he just did these things because he is a caring person.
Dr. Malloy's days were often filled with long hours of service to the medical profession, as well as outreach to the community. It was not about whether you were his patient or whether he was being paid for his services.
What he has done for our family is worth more than money. Over the years I have met some of his family and I know that he is a family man. I have seen awards on his walls and I have heard similar stories of thanks for his kindness and genuine concern for women and their particular challenges and struggles in life.
I know that Dr. Tyrone Malloy filled his days and nights with service to the profession and humanity; and that he was surely unaware of any purported irregularities that may have occurred in his practice or office.
We are praying for him and we wish him the best possible outcome. He is an amazing doctor and human being.
