Dr. Peter Mowschenson is very professional, sincere, and responsible. I had a very good experience with him. He was very informative before and after my surgery. He called me several times after surgery to follow up on my recovery process and to ensure my voice came back and I was in good condition. Definitely, I will refer him for anyone needing thyroid surgery in Boston. He is the BEST!

Dr. Mowschenson cured my hyperparathyroidism. There aren’t words to describe the feelings of gratitude and level of respect I have for this brilliant surgeon. I am so fortunate to have found him after going through an unsuccessful parathyroid surgery with a different surgeon at MEEI in Boston less than a year ago. Dr. Mowschenson’s level of expertise and confidence, as well as his kind demeanor allowed me to feel comfortable moving forward with this second surgery that was a huge success! In addition to being grateful to him for solving my health issue, I appreciate how he was so on top of everything! He called right away after test results came in and even called me on a Saturday to discuss my situation. The level of care that I experienced with Dr. Mowschenson is something I’m sure every one of his patients can count on. This surgery has been life changing for me and now I am symptom free and feeling wonderful! Dr. Mowschenson is the best parathyroid surgeon in Boston!

I would gladly and assuredly recommend Dr. Mowschenson to my family and friends. His awards as Top Thyroid Surgeon attest to his remarkable talent, skills and expertise as a surgeon. But beyond the OR, Dr. M has offered unparalleled care and support that began with my pre-op appt. and has continued throughout my post-op recovery. He has addressed all of my questions and concerns throughout my thyroidectomy and recovery. Andrea, his OM is wonderful-kind, caring, and a great sense of humor.

I felt very confident after my first visit with Dr. Mowchenson. He answered all questions and even returned a phone call himself after leaving a message to make an appointment. He did a great job removing my thyroid and the incision looks great. Andrea, his assistant, is amazing too!

Dr. Mowschenson is an excellent Doctor. He's professional and confident, he eased my concerns and calmed my fears. Knowing I was facing a thyroidectomy was overwhelming enough, but Dr Mowschenson is compassionate and his confidence comes thru when you talk to him. So on Sept 13th 2018, I underwent a thyroidectomy. I am healing nicely and no pain post surgery. His receptionist Andrea runs the office and is amazing and very personable. I cannot recommend Dr. Mowschenson highly enough

At my first appointment with Dr. Mowschenson, I was impressed with his overall knowledge. The day I went home after my surgery, I noticed some swelling in my neck. I called the number he gave me and he actually answered the phone at 10pm! He asked me to send him a photo and allayed my fears telling me the swelling was normal. I was alarmed when I first saw the incision but in a few months, it healed beautifully. Friends can't believe I have no scar! I would highly recommend him to others.

OUTSTANDING! I cannot recommend Dr. Mowschenson highly enough. Everything about Dr. Mowschenson and his assistant Andrea far exceeds all other offices. Dr. M spends as much time with you as you need in order to understand your unique situation. His website is extremely helpful. His surgical skill is exceptional and the time and care he shows before and after surgery is rare! You will not regret choosing Dr. Mowschenson!

Dr. Mowschenson recently performed a parathyroidectomy on me and did an excellent job. He and his assistant, Andrea, were very helpful, friendly, efficient, easy to talk to, and made me feel very comfortable. I found Dr. Mowschenson's website immensely helpful as it answered all of my questions regarding the symptoms, surgery, recovery, and outcome thoroughly and simply. I would highly recommend Dr. Mowschenson.

Outstanding! Gets right to the problem at hand. He did a very successful parathyroid procedure on my wife and it has made a remarkable improvement in each of her symptoms.
