An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>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.

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.

Dr. Gillar is straight forward and direct. She asked questions about my diet and general health as well as my emotional state. She order tests that helped answer my questions about my health. She is science based and thorough. I appreciate her approach to keeping me healthy.

I visited dr 3 times, with the same set of questions each time. None was answered on ANY of my visits. Very poor patient relations. She discarded my 90-day CGM printouts because 6 of the 90 days were on an insulin pump; the remaining 84 were on Tresiba. She said the results were invalid because of the 6 days on the insulin pump. She also didn't know that my diabetes drug, came in a 100-U dosing pen. She argued with me over this. Also got sick because she changed my GERD meds without contacting GI doc. I've had Type I DM for 35 years, with no microvascular or other complications. I feel that I'm obviously doing something right. This doc only found ways to put me down and feel stupid, rather than lift me up for any level of good care I've taken for myself. On my last visit she got up and walked out because she said I was taking too much of her time. Yet, she struggled to let me even ask my questions. If you want a doctor that keeps her head in the computer for an incredibly long time to look up incorrect things from your last visit (which I've tried to correct on both of my follow-up visits), avoids looking directly at you, and avoids your questions with lackluster comments , this is the doc for you. If you want a professional that really cares, go somewhere else.

Didnt ask me any questions to learn about my health, just focused on the computer and list of meds. I have been to neurologists all my life for my migraines, and learned that only one old style medication works for me. Yes there have been many new style drugs for that, but none worked. She launched into a chide as to why I didnt go and try the other meds and see neurologists, and didnt listen to me saying I did. She then told me that she will NOT take the risk to prescribe this medication, that I need to go elsewhere for that. Very unprofessional in her attitude and her MO
