Functional Medicine is a dynamic approach to assessing, preventing and treating complex chronic disease. Dr. Wertheimer's passion for practice is fueled by his belief that nutrient dense eating combined with aggressive reduction in exposure to environmental toxins, treatment of food sensitivities and appropriate use of supplements alters the way our genetics are manifest and leads to optimal function and healing of the human body.
At Wertheimer Center we offer our patients the best of both worlds when it comes to healthcare. We offer the unique opportunity of working with a double board certified Internist/Cardiologist who combines full knowledge of 'Standard Practice' with use of the best Integrative diagnostics and treatments. We use medication, but we use it sparingly, and often in conjunction with other treatment modalities. Our goal is always to get to the real cause of the disease, and not just treat your symptoms.
At Wertheimer Center we focus on Preventive Care. When we talk about 'preventive care' in standard medical practice, what we really mean is 'early detection' - 'find the breast cancer before it is too big' or 'detect the blockage in the coronary arteries before you have a heart attack'. While early detection is useful and important, true prevention is a much better idea. Never getting the breast cancer or never developing the blockage is a far more appealing option. By addressing root cause issues, illnesses are often avoided. It is never too late to change your path.
Every body is unique - everyone's chemistry is different. A 'one-size-fits all' or 'this supplement is good for that illness' will rarely allow your body to heal properly and reach its full potential. Using data from advanced biochemical / physiological diagnostic testing, we deliver custom solutions, tailored to you and your one-of-a-kind challenges and bodily responses. At Wertheimer Center, Precision Medicine means your body gets exactly what it needs.
Chronic diseases are almost never caused by 'one thing'. There are always reasons behind why we get sick and the answers to the question of 'Why?' always involve your chemistry and physiology. At Wertheimer Center, our approach to chronic illness involves investigation of your physiology and biochemistry to determine the 'root cause' issues. Our precision treatment plans are designed to ameliorate those issues and stop your problem at its core.
Dr. Wertheimer has experience working with patients that suffer from a wide variety of medical conditions including autoimmune diseases (Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Hashimoto’s Disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s Syndrome and others), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diabetes Mellitus (Type 1 and and Type 2), Alzheimer’s Disease, Hyperlipidemia, Coronary Artery Disease, Arrythmia, Congestive Heart Failure, Celiac Disease, Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, Food Sensitivities & Allergies, Alzheimer’s Disease, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, GERD, Leaky gut, Dysbiosis, Adrenal Stress and SIBO.
