Dr. Mobley not only has the precision and surgical skills required to complete these operations successfully, but he also has a personable bedside manner that patients appreciate during their time of need.
The endocrine glands are a system of ductless glands that create the hormones that run throughout the human body. The glands are designed to speak to one another through signals in a sequence. This sequence of signals is called an axis, and patients who are suffering from endocrine disease often have glands that aren’t communicating with one another properly. The endocrine glands are responsible for a variety of functions in the human body and have an impact on both the reproductive system as well as a person’s metabolism.
