- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Benowitz got right down to figuring out what was going on with me. He did thorough testing to make sure he wasn't missing anything, took the time to explain the results, and is always willing to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. He won't sugar coat anything, so if you're sensitive about being overweight or the fact that you don't exercise, he might hurt your feeling by telling you how to be healthier. My concern going to see him wasn't to be told how great I am, it was resolving my health issues. I'm grateful he works hard to educate me on the issues. I'll be going back to him for as long as I have this health concern.
Dr. Benowtiz was the worst experience I have ever had with a physician. His personal style is abrupt, rude, judgmental, demeaning, and dismissive. He refused to listen to me, did not acknowledge my legitimate concerns, refused to allow me to see any test results, reached a superficial and meaningless diagnosis, and gave me advice I could have got from a shoe salesman. Further, because I saw him before my annual deductible had been paid, he required a cash payment of several hundred dollars and would not have returned the overcharge except that I finally complained and--by inquiring several months later of the other doctor he had referred me to--inadvertently embarrassed him before his colleagues. His staff were pleasant but seemed intimidated by him. I felt battered and abused by him, and I will never allow anyone I care about to interact with him--much less to ask him for health care.
