- 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.

I had been to 2 prior doctors about my thyroid cancer diagnosis. Both were smart, but really left me with many unanswered questions. I was recommended to see Dr. Alexander. The apt was difficult to get on short notice, as he is in very high demand. However, he was most gracious, sat down with a smile, and worked to help me more than any other prior doctor. He clearly is a leader in the field, and his ability to really connect and care for his patients in unparalleled. Super doctor!
