Dr. Dorine Karlin, ND, LAc
Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist, Clinic Director

Dr. Karlin’s medical practice of 16 years focuses on the treatment of the whole individual to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Dr. Karlin has designed Well Being Medical Center as a nurturing environment where the physical as well as the emotional history lays the groundwork for treatment. Through this approach, Dr. Karlin treats the cause of disease/illness rather than just the symptoms. Through effective and appropriately individualized treatment methods, the patient is guided towards balanced health. The goal is to create optimal wellness by identifying and eliminating the stressors on a patient’s system and supporting the body’s physiology.

Dr. Karlin began her studies with a degree in psychology from Rutgers University. Her research was published in the American Journal of Psychology for work on the effects of stress on decision-making skills. Motivated by her foundation in psychology, Dr. Karlin worked as a Youth Development Counselor in a residential treatment center for emotionally disturbed children. Her belief in overall health and the connection between health and the environment led to her work as a Greenpeace Assistant Director, an experience that strengthened her resolve to enter the healthcare profession.

Dr. Karlin attained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, and a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California. She is a board certified national diplomat in acupuncture and a California State Board Licensed Acupuncturist. To emphasize the integration of the physical, energetic and emotional plans of health, Dr. Karlin achieved a certification in Neuro Emotional Technique.

Dr. Karlin, in her sixteenth year of practice as a family healthcare practitioner, is the director and owner of WELL BEING Medical Center. She works with a team of practitioners and the patient’s established medical practitioners to create an integrated multidisciplinary network which provides her patients with a complementary and comprehensive treatment protocol. Utilizing and blending both Western and Eastern systems of healing, demonstrates her commitment to achieving more than just the absence of disease, but optimal wellness for all her patients through an effective holistic treatment. Her specialties include Women’s healthcare, hormonal balancing, stress-related disorders (depression, anxiety, insomnia), neurotransmitter balancing, addiction, pain management, detoxification, weight loss and preventative medicine.
