Dr. Wortman has a wealth of experience in the traditional treatment of the many disorders that can affect the skin, hair and nails. More recently, he has become interested in trying to blend such traditional methods with alternative and complementary care to provide a more complete and integrated approach to patients’ needs. This might involve discussion about dietary changes, herbal and vitamin supplements, massage, acupuncture, healing touch and other forms of mind/body work. In this way, doctor and patient can work as a team to promote self-healing.
