An endocrinologist is a physician, typically doctors of medicine or doctors of osteopathic medicine, engaged in the study and practice of the endocrine system. Endocrinologists play important roles in university academic research, clinical medical practice and in the pharmaceutical industry. They are specialists, experts in their field, and should serve as your main physician for endocrine disease related problems.
