Wayne H. Wertheim, M.D. – Medical Director of 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.

Throughout his years in practice, Dr. Wertheim developed a strong interest in anti-aging medicine, bariatrics, and nutritional supplementation. 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.

During the last several years, he has explored the various alternatives in non-invasive procedures to help slow down or correct the effects of aging, particularly of the skin. 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. Dr. Wertheim stands by his belief that all of his patients should be "treated as if they are family. Recommendations and treatments are offered only 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."

Prudence L. Ferrone – Director of Aesthetic Services

Ferrone: Advanced Laser of Long Island: Prudence L. Ferrone"Prudy," as she is affectionately known around the office, has been in the personal care, beauty, and wellness industry for over 20 years. Her interest in aesthetic medicine first took root when she began working for Lancôme cosmetics as a make-up artist. Following that, she began working as a wardrobe coordination consultant for Beauty Control. Motivated by a desire to continue working with people, fashion, and glamour, she entered the world of fragrance as a consultant for Burberry and Boucheron. As Prudy began her family, she tapped her entrepreneurial spirit by launching a successful jewelry design company for which she served as both senior designer and CEO. As her family grew, she began focusing on using her multifaceted skills and experience in the growing medical cosmetic arena. Her first step was to enter the field of personal care and nutritional supplementation with the international giant Nu Skin® Enterprises and Pharmanex®. While there, Prudy was a respected trainer and lecturer while achieving the pinnacle of success and earning capacity. During this time, she was also responsible for bringing to fruition the concept of integrating nutritional wellness centers into medical practices, creating over 200 in the tri-state area.

Prudy could not have been a better candidate to join and excel in the field of aesthetic medicine. "It seemed like a natural continuation of my diverse background, dealing with people and advising them on all forms of personal care and beauty." Prudy, like millions of Americans, is an aging baby boomer. "As I continue to 'mature,' I want to feel good and look my best as long as possible. I have tried all types of procedures short of surgery; I know what works and what doesn't." Her clients love hearing about her personal experiences and tapping into her unparalleled expertise in aesthetic medicine.
