Dr. Wayne Wertheim

During the last several years, Dr. Wertheim has explored the various alternatives in non-invasive procedures to help slow down or correct the effects of aging. He has researched equipment and therapies that are not only state-of-the-art, efficacious, and cost-effective, but also safe. Dr. Wertheim decided to leave his primary care practice in March 2005 in order to devote his full-time efforts to serving as medical director of Island Medical Laser in Roslyn Heights.

Dr. Wertheim has developed a reputation for having an outstanding bedside manner and treating all of his patients with care and compassion. He stands by his belief that all of his patients should be “treated as if they are family”. Recommendations and treatments are offered with the best interests of the patient in mind. “I have derived much positive feedback and joy in this exciting new field of aesthetic medicine. The procedures we perform prove to have beneficial effects not only to our patients’ skin but to their overall sense of confidence and psychological well being.“ The Viveve Geneveve procedure is quickly taken a lead position in effectively treating incontinence, dryness, and laxity and he is excited to have added the device to the array of technology at Island Medical Laser.

Dr. Wertheim completed his postgraduate training in internal medicine at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York. For more than 24 years, he practiced primary care medicine on Long Island with offices in Roslyn Heights and Garden City. During this time, his hospital associations included North Shore University Hospital, St. Francis Hospital, and the Winthrop University Hospital. Dr. Wertheim has held academic teaching appointments at both the Cornell University Medical College and the School of Medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

He is an active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and the International Medical Spa Society. He continually expands his knowledge base by attending both national and international aesthetic conferences and advanced training seminars.
