Training & Credentialing

After completing medical school, doctors must complete at least one year of additional training before they can become licensed practitioners. In order to be board certified, they must complete residency training in a specialty. ALL accredited residency training is overseen by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Checking that your surgeon is ABMS board certified is a very important step in your decision-making, as only ABMS boards regulate accredited residency training. In order to become a Facial Plastic Surgeon, a physician must complete either an Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, & Throat Surgery) residency or a Plastic Surgery residency.

After completing residency, they must complete a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship. Only after being certified by either the American Board of Otolaryngology or the American Board of Plastic Surgery (both ABMS boards) and meeting other strict requirements can they apply for certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Just like the ABMS boards, certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery requires written and oral examination by specialists in this field as well as a demonstration that a significant portion of the surgeon’s time is dedicated to the subspecialty of facial surgery.

Dr. Mobley continues to actively research and develop new techniques and teach those techniques to other doctors.

Safety, Quality, and Patient Satisfaction are the pillars of The Mobley MD Surgical Network. Dr. Mobley has developed his own state-of-the-art surgical center to make his surgeries as safe, efficient, and comfortable as possible.

Our practice is socially conscious. Every year Dr. Mobley treats bullied children for free who have larger ears through the Mobley MD Foundation.
