What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Hypertension, diabetes, hypothyroidism, preventive medicine, heart disease, well care.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I’m interested in providing individualized care for the patient that takes all of their health needs into consideration. I invite my patients to be involved in all decisions and to take responsibility for their health care choices. If we succeed in partnering together, we can achieve a long and healthy life.

We follow the most up to date guidelines in preventive care and screening medicine.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

As a grade school student, I enjoyed the sciences. In college, my father underwent cardiac surgery. His cardiologist inspired me to become a physician with his compassion for my father and our entire family during a difficult time. Thankfully, my father did well for some time. I had the privilege to be in this physician's class at the NYU School of Medicine, and I informed him of the impact he had on me.

"I have been seeing Dr. Wertenteil for many years and consider him to be a thorough and caring and competent physician."
"In my opinion, Dr. Wertenteil is among the finest physicians I have ever known. He commands respect because he always shows respect to his patient. He cares about what I think as well as about how I feel."
"I've been a patient of Dr. Wertenteil's for nearly 20 years. I have been so pleased with his care that I still use him even though I have moved further away."
"Dr. Wertenteil is very patient, kind and understanding. He is extremely thorough in his exam, and is a very good listener who genuinely cares about what you are saying. He made me feel very comfortable during the exam."
