Re: what is the difference between internal medicine and endocrinologist

An "internal medicine" doctor is a regular "internist" or general practitioner that deals with your general health (you go for check ups there and such). An endocronologist is a specialist doctor, who specializes in the endocrine system, which includes diabetes, thyroid, etc.
