- 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.<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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Renee E Amori - Posted on April 5th, 2013
This doctor did not listen to a single concern, or bit of my history. She looked at my blood work (TSH levels alone) and insisted I was being treated incorrectly by another physician whom I know and trust. Not only that, she outright insulted that physician for diagnosing me the way he did. I am very certain that her entire motivation is in prescribing the pharmaceuticals readily available in the office. When I tried to talk to her about how weight gain with thyroid issues affected me, she dismissed this as if I was vain, and told me that 15-20 pounds is completely natural for women to gain after high school. HA! I'm sure that's what SHE would like to believe. I have a high knowledge of the endocrine system and teach it at the collegiate level. When I asked her very clear questions on why she was prescribing what she was prescribing, basically pointing out that what she was saying made no sense, her only answer was "that's just what we do here". Terrific. Go elsewhere.
