Dr. George A Charnock has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

I have been going to Dr. Charnock for 20 years. He is truly a caring and smart man. He saved my life when I needed emergency Gallbladder surgery and it was because he was quick to diagnose the problem. He is truly one of the best Internal Medicine Doctors around. I can't say enough. He always puts my mind at ease.

Ive seen Dr.Charnock for many years. I absolutely love him! He is extremely honest, & to the point, does not "sugar" coat things. Although you may often times wait past your appt, he ALWAYS spends the appropriate time with you & addresses your needs. I don't care much for the office staff "gossiping", or that they are sometimes rude to him, either to his face or behind his back, I feel that is dis-respectful, however, they have ALWAYS been nice & professional with me & always accommodating to my needs. I would absolutely recommend him & his office to anyone!

As another reviewer posted, Dr. Charnock is a man of integrity and honesty. I, too, have seen him get on the phone when I was very sick and demand that a specialist see me sooner. You won't find too many no nonsense straight shooters out there like this fine professional. I have been seeing him as my general doctor for about 20 years because I want someone to tell me the truth. He is a compassionate ethical man who is not just another medical huckster with a fake toothy smile, of which there are many.
