- 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.

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.

Having just transfered from a useless uncaring doctor, Dr Decker is as refreshing as Spring. She's caring and listens to my comments and accepts them. What a welcome change from my previous provider.
Not a good recommendation for this doctor

From the moment she walked in she acted like she had a chip on her shoulder. I had been seeing a PA and was recommended to see a doctor and was set up with her. She treated me with disrespect and got very upset when I shared some areas of concern with my health and asked about some tests that we might run. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. She is very unprofessional.
Just getting an appt.

I also did not have a good experience with this Dr. I only went to see her one time due to her curt & strangely defensive manner. During the rather quick new patient visit (under 10 minutes), I related to her what my primary doc had told me about my thyroid issues. She seemed perturbed by that, dismissed me & said, "Then why don't you just see Dr *** for your thyroid", jotted something in the chart & left the room. Frankly, I was bewildered by this person...
