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.

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.

Dr. Shulman has been my husband's doctor for the past five years. Several months ago, my husband was admitted to RWJ for GI problems. Since Dr. S was his diabetic doctor, he was part of the hospital team. It was difficult for the nurses to manage my husband's high and low counts because his insulin shots were not adequate for the amount of food he was eating. When Dr. S. realized what was happening, he spoke to my husband's nurses and requested they make small adjustments to his shots. In addition, I could easily reach him when emergencies occurred. His calm manner and effective actions relieved my stress. I always knew he cared.
