Holistic healthcare that treats you, not your symptoms

Meet Dr. Wertkin

year residency through National College of Natural Medicine. Prior to medical school, Dr. Wertkin performed clinical research at both the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM).

Dr.Wertkin practiced as a Natural Family Medicine specialist in CT under the mentorship of Dr. James Sensenig until 2014 when she opened her own Naturopathic Primary Care practice, Naturae Medical, in Brattleboro, VT. Her passion is assisting people in restoring their health using scientific evaluations, classical naturopathic therapies and addressing the emotional and spiritual components of illness. Dr. Wertkin has been voted the Best Physician in the greater Brattleboro area for the past 3 years. She has now closed her Brattleboro Primary Care office and is relocating to Portland ME where she will be practicing as a Natural Medicine Specialist.

In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Wertkin is one of the founders and is an advisory council member of the Naturopathic Medicine Institute. She is a frequent guest on the weekly call series, The Vital Conversation. She has been an adjunct faculty for the University of Bridgeport and has been on the health board for the local United Way foundation. She is a regular guest on WVEW 107.7 FM Brattleboro community radio and has appeared on several episodes of Healing Outside the Box, a Public Television series.

When she’s not geeking out about medicine, Dr Wertkin enjoys yoga, dancing, most activities outdoor in nature, traveling, creating new recipes for healthy baked goods and spending time with loved ones.
