Mercy Hospital Hot Springs and Mercy Clinic are proud to announce the arrival of Dr. Daryl Burrows to the Mercy Endocrinology Clinic in Hot Springs.
Dr. Burrows is a native of Rogers and graduate of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and UAMS in Little Rock. He joins fellow Endocrinologist Dr. Jonathan Stringer at the office located on the South Campus at 1662 Higdon Ferry Road, Suite 230.
“It’s great to know who I’ll be working with. That’s worth a lot,” said Dr. Burrows, who attended both UA and UAMS with Dr. Stringer. “I’ve worked with other people who were good but didn’t have as much of a team spirit. I hope that we’ll be working together for years.”
Dr. Burrows comes to Mercy after spending the past three years at St. Vincent Diabetes and Endocrinology Clinic in Little Rock.
An Endocrinologist manages hormone abnormalities in the body.
A hormone is a chemical messenger from one cell (or a group of cells) to another. Hormones are released (secreted) in the body and have an effect on other parts of the body. The effect is to communicate with the possibly distant parts of the body. Problems with hormones and the way they work contribute to major diseases such as diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, some sexual problems, some neurological problems, appetite, obesity, bone problems and cancer.
“Diabetes is our main issue, the endocrine abnormality of insulin production,” Dr. Burrows said.
He said he chose Endocrinology as his specialty because he is able to help patients get started in their treatment.
“It’s not a fix it and go situation for us. It’s more: Here’s something than can get you started. Now you take over. It’s good to watch them go down that path of treatment and eventually months, sometimes years, later they come in with great improvements,” Dr. Burrows said. “We can take a little bit of credit for that because we helped them get started.”
