A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
- 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. B is a wonderful doctor - great diagnostician, super bedside manner, lovely man. I highly recommend Dr. B. I regret, though, that his staff makes me post only three stars, and consider less. Numerous calls to the office for follow up administrative questions and issues caused by their team continue to go unreturned. Dr B., however, always returns calls within a few days. But, the staff - they do not. How can one report a glowing review when the problems with paperwork, insurance, billing, reporting etc. are so out of hand and linger for months at a time without any support or understanding from his elves? One has to think -- is it worth continuing to use this practice if there's so much aggravation after each appointment? If the fish stink, so does the school. I am considering another provider all due to problems created by his office which they fail to take ownership of.
dr. b is without a doubt the most caring doctor i have had. he inspires confidence and is without pomposity. he partners with his patients in their care and works together to create a plan of action., he welcomes second opinions. i wish him all the best and look forward to his being back on staff at beth israel mc
I was under Dr. Bodenheimer's care for chronic hepatitis when I attended college in Providence back in the 80's. He and Dr. Robert Kirkpatrick are two of the foremost authorities in liver diseases in this country. They are also two of the most caring doctors anywhere. When they met at conferences, they actually discussed my case. They put me on experimental interferon treatment when it was not an FDA approved drug yet. I completely recovered about 15 years ago, and I will always be grateful to have been under the care of such wonderful, old-school doctors who are not driven by money but strive for the best in patient care.
