Endocrinologists are doctors trained to work with patients having hormone-related diseases. These doctors are trained to diagnose and manage diseases that affect the glands (adrenal glands, hypothalamus, ovaries and testicles, pancreas, parathyroid, pineal, pituitary, thymus, and thyroid) and the hormones. The endocrinologist helps in restoring hormone balance in the impacted gland. As part of their work, endocrinologists commonly treat diabetes, osteoporosis, menopause, metabolic disorders, thyroid diseases, some cancers (including thyroid cancer, pituitary tumor, parathyroid cancer, and adrenocortical carcinoma), short stature, and infertility.
General Physicians are highly trained specialists who provide the non-surgical treatment to adult patients, particularly who are referred to them by other doctors, most commonly by the patient's general practitioner. They care for the most difficult, serious or complex medical problems and continue to see the patient until these problems have been stabilized or resolved completely. General physicians are trained to carry out a variety of medical procedures for the diagnosis and management of patients with infectious and tropical diseases like HIV, tuberculosis, Kala Azar, Malaria, Cholera, and Diarrhea. They also undertake the teaching and administrative responsibilities which includes supervision and training to medical staff, planning medical programs, management of hospital pharmacy, and proper monitoring of medical activities in the hospital.
