He is notorious for his controversial on-air comments and in 2002 was officially reprimanded for them by the Collège des médecins. The topics he has spoken about include voluntary castration of pedophiles and criticism of feminists. He served as a sort of on-air psychiatrist for the Quebec version of the reality show Loft Story, where he made controversial remarks that upset the parents of some of the participants.
Mailloux has also written several books.
Over the years, the title of his radio show has changed from Un psy à l'écoute to Deux psy à l'écoute to Doc Mailloux.
On February 10, 2005, the Quebec Regional Panel of the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council , responding to a listener complaint, determined that Mailloux had made "specifically-focussed abusive and unduly discriminatory remarks" towards national or ethnic groups in a broadcast discussing immigration, such as when he referred to Sikhs as a "gang of bozos" (translated). They ruled that, in doing so, Mailloux and the station had broken the Human Rights clause of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Code of Ethics.
