- 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.

Poor time management skills, staff does not want to be there, nor do they return calls. One staff member answered the phone "What" really professional. Too tired so when you have a 5 pm appointment and she finally comes in your room at 8:45 pm, I'm talking the office, she is often confrontational and accusatory. She could be a great MD, just tooo many down sides. I have switched.
Should have known wait was going to be long when nurse gave us 4 page article on doctor/patient relationships to read while waiting for doc! Waited 2+ hours...doc spent 12 mins...did not listen...just ordered tests...said it was vitamins causing hyperthyroid...but there's no iodine in my vitamins!
