Have thyroid in family. Can internal doctor treat this?

HI Doc, I ve been having problems. Think it is my thyroid . It runs in my immediate family, and thinking back I ve had some symptoms a few years. Things have accelerated to the point where I am obviously experiencing something different. I ve tried to schedule an appt. with an endo., they can not see me until July 31st! Do you think my internal doctor can diagnose and treat me without seeing an endo.?
