A brilliant doctor with a bedside manner so good its a wonder how other doctors get by. He helped me loose 70lbs. I am off of insulin and 3/4 of my other meds. I couldn't have done it without his compassion and kindness.

Excellent physician. His clinical knowledge far supersedes anyone I have ever seen before, and then he also has a way of incorporating this into every aspect of your care. He is kind, thoughtful, and non-judgmental and you feel as though you can tell him anything, which I find to be such an asset to a primary care physician.

Dr. Petteruti, Shannon and all of the staff have changed my life. I am the healthiest I have ever been and I owe it all the wonderful medical team at Petteruti Center for Life Extension. Anyone who wants to lose weight, get healthy and add years to their life should contact the office and make an appointment.

I've struggled with my weight since I was 16. I have gained and lost over 100 lbs twice in my life but keeping it off has always been the challenge. Last fall I tipped the scales at 334 pounds. Frustrated, I tried the gym route but had slow to almost no results. I saw an old friend in December and he recommended Dr. Petteruti. I called and made the appointment, I had given up hope until then. After my initial visit and blood work, Dr. Petteruti called me at home to alert me of my dangerously high blood sugar. He was very calming, told me not to worry, what to do, and that we'd solve it together. I actually felt relieved- I had some sort of answer. Since then I have shed a Back Street Boy but I still have work to do. I found out everything that I thought I knew about diet and exercise was wrong. All the cardio in the world wasn't going to fix my carb intake. I had to stop worrying about fat and start worrying about the glycemic index. Weight training has given me strength and definition that I've never had. Dr. Petteruti prescribed medication when I needed it but often recommended healthy supplements instead. Shannon, my Weight Loss Counselor, counseled me and made sure I had a plan of attack for both my eating and work outs. Thanks to Dr. Petteruti and The Petteruti Center I feel like this time I know what to do to keep the weight off. - A. L.

I saw Dr. Petteruti about 13 years ago when I lived in RI. I've always said that he was one of the best doctors I've even seen. He seemed to genuinely care about his patients and he LISTENED. He didn't just toss a script at you and move on. He sat down and he listened. Unfortunately, I lost my job andhad to move to find work and had to find a new GP. It appears he is continuing to do great things. Too bad there isn't a doctor around here that has had this kind of success with weight loss. Keep up the good work doc!

I came to see Dr. Petteruti after seeing my friend make a 180 with his health. He was a bit over-weight, tired often and lacking the will to do a whole lot except work. He is now 20 pounds leaner feeling like he's 25 again. We are back to mountain biking, lifting and social outings. His wife has mentioned on several occasions that this saved their marriage. After 6 months with Dr. Petteruti, I'm off all my medications, my weight is coming down and I feel terrific! I joke with my friend that I feel 24 and he's still older than me, even though we're only in our early 50's. I'm so grateful Dr. Petteruti is the kind of person that will sit with you and listen to what you are really saying. He doesn't sugar coat anything, but is always kind. Here's to living another 50 years!

Its an amazing program and unlike other programs that I have tried. I am losing lots of weight, I have gone from thankgivng..3 christsmas and new years and still have lost a consistent 2-3 lbs a week. This is when I realized the way I look at food and how I make my choices are changing and its starting to become very natural. This has also been the most affordable, I highly recomend this program. Thank you Dr. Petturutti and Shannon for helping to make 2014 a much healthier year for me!
