Take charge of your health and lead an active life
Your endocrine system is made up of glands that secrete hormones your body needs to function properly. Growth, metabolism, blood pressure, mood, reproduction, body temperature — hormones regulate all of these critical processes and more. Problems with glands and hormone production can result in chronic medical conditions including diabetes, thyroid disorders and obesity. If not treated properly, endocrine disorders can lead to serious medical complications. But with the right diagnosis and proper management, patients can lead happy, healthy lives.
That’s where Dr. Flower Mai and Dr. Kimberley Bourne come in, understanding completely the personal nature of endocrine disorders and the individualized attention required to treat them. They review the patient’s medical history and symptoms to diagnose and develop a treatment plan, working with other specialists when appropriate, to ensure comprehensive, coordinated care.
