Anti Aging

Posted on November 5, 2016

I have always wanted to do some aesthetic medicine but nervous I would look fake and over the top. Dr. Petteruti took the time to sit down with me to show me exactly what I needed to have a natural, youthful look. They even that this camera that shows where all the damage has been. I received an IPL, botox and fillers for my cheeks and nasalabial folds. I couldn't be happier!

Ten days into having my hormones implanted my hot flashes stopped and sex drive returned. I honestly am one happy girl and my husband is ecstatic to have his wife back!

I am 65 years old and have felt this age for several years. I knew there was something that could be done about it but didn't want to travel to Boston or NYC. I found Dr. Petteruti and after a VERY thorough assessment of my needs started on bioidential hormones. I feel like I'm 40 years old again! I can't believe it was posible to feel this good. My energy, mood, libido, muscle tone and mental clarity have all returned. I am so thankful to have such a forward thinking physician here in Rhode Island. 

Posted on November 8, 2013

They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. Their staff is very friendly and professional and I was very satisfied with my visit. They were helpful and I left feeling encouraged. I'm excited to start my plan for better health with Dr. Petteruti. 

Posted on June 7, 2013

There aren't enough words to describe how competent, impeccable and professional Dr. Petteruti and his staff have been and continue to be with me. I have been a patient (initially for weight loss) for the past 5 years. Dr. Petteruti is now my physician for life extension and any other medical need. The first time I saw him for the bariatric consultation I was amazed by the amount of time he spent with me. No other doctor has been more thorough and meticulous with me. I was tired of drive-through visits which most physicians perform. Dr. Petteruti takes each patient at heart and he does not neglect any aspect during the visit. Not only my bariatric experience has been a success for the past five years, the life extension care (bioidentical hormones) (for the past year) has been extremely positive and helped me cope with several challenges in my daily life. I recently lost my mother (she had been ill for 12 years and my family and I cared for her mostly at home) and if it weren't for my physical and mental fitness that I obtained from Dr. Petteruti and from Shannon Petteruti, I would not have been able to withstand the emotional and physical toll this tragedy has brought to me and to my family! Since I started seeing this doctor, several people came to me to ask how I lost the weight etc. I referred them to him. The ones who went and began their lifestyle change came to me to thank me for referring them and one even told me I saved her life because Dr. Petteruti diagnosed something that could have become more serious if not detected early. Once again, this is only a brief commentary but Dr. Petteruti, Shannon Petteruti and their staff deserve a lot more! This team is now part of my life and I will always be grateful for the ongoing lifestyle and health lessons they teach me every time I see them!

I've been on Bio-identical hormone replacement for a little over a week and I feel fantastic! My energy levels have returned, I'm sleeping well, feel rested when I wake (I don't have to hit the snooze button a half a dozen times), and have even been getting up EARLIER with energy for a morning workout or jog. I love how I'm feeling!

Posted on April 14, 2013

I'm very happy with Dr. Petteruti, and also glad I have followed his advice, it has changed my life. I feel thirty years younger and am full of energy. My whole family goes to him now. He is an exceptional Doctor. If you have a problem he gets back to you promptly. I would, and do recommend him to everyone.

Posted on March 4, 2013

Thank you Shannon and Dr. P for all of your encouragement and patience, not to mention life-saving information. I am walking, eating better and out of the winter slump and will return from Curacao in two weeks slimmer and healthier. God bless you for your giving hearts and knowledge.

I feel twenty years younger thanks to The Petteruti Center!

Posted on February 21, 2013

I cannot tell you how much The Petteruti Center has helped me.  Honestly, it’s amazing.  I was so depressed and feeling old and broken, but Dr. Petteruti and Shannon picked me up and put me on my feet again.

Posted on February 21, 2013

After starting the bioidentical hormone therapy, my life is back to normal!  I look and feel better and I have my libido back!  I cannot express how grateful I am that Dr. Petteruti listened to my problems and had an answer.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I came in to Dr. Petteruti’s office feeling skeptical after trying so many failed treatments with other doctors, but I walked out a true believer looking and feeling incredible!  Age really ain’t nothing but a number!  Thank you Dr. Petteruti!

Posted on February 21, 2013

This is a very professional, yet warm and friendly office.  I trust the staff here completely and I know for sure they are listening to me and have my best interests at heart.  I have had great results and would recommend Dr. Petteruti to anyone.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I have a renewed sense of confidence—this is something I haven’t had in a long time.  I thought that looking tired and wrinkled was just something that came with getting older, but Dr. Petteruti and Shannon taught me that there are simple solutions to help you look your best and feel more confident.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I am in love with the mirror!  I can’t thank you enough. I love my results.

Posted on February 21, 2013

The results I got at The Petteruti Center are so natural looking.  People have been coming up to me asking if I just came back from vacation.  I look rested and refreshed!

Posted on August 22, 2012

You were insightful as to what would suit me best.  Thank you!

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were? Feeling young again is inspiring — now is my time to live!

Weight Loss

Posted on September 20, 2018

From day one with Dr. Petteruti, I was convinced that I made the right choice in seeing him. He listened attentively, made me feel at ease and suggested that I would be able to lose weight and never be hungry. I didn't know what to expect, but quickly learned that he was right. I lost 3 lbs. in the first week, following his nutritional guidelines and eating schedule (or what he refers to as "feeding times"). I have lost 70 lbs. since I began my journey with Dr. Petteruti and I continue to do so each week while indulging
in my favorite food, ice cream, twice a week! It's been an amazing program for me, I just wish I had found him sooner!

Posted on July 8, 2014

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.

Posted on April 24, 2014

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 and
had 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!

Posted on April 9, 2014

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!

After years of battling obesity, I started in The Petteruti Center Weight Loss Program. Dr. Petteruti is a caring doctor with an individual plan that works for your body, mind and general lifestyle. I lost 85 lbs and have kept it off for two years. I have never been happier. Dr. Petteruti is on the leading edge of weight loss. He is attentive to detail and spends the time talking with you. He takes a whole body approach to figure out the underlying causes of an illness, he doesn't just fix the here and now. I am thankful I was referred to him.

Dr. Petteruti is a wonderful doctor. He is supportive, respectful and has the most wonderful bedside manners. He listens to his patients in a non-judgmental way.  I am so thankful he was on my journey with me for my weight loss.

A brilliant mind with a caring heart. He treats you as a whole person, not just a condition. He has been my family doc for years and I recentely finished his medical weight loss program. I lost 78 lbs and have such a different outlook on life. ~Bobby

Dr. Petteruti helped me reduce my weight by 106lbs. After my complete health history and physical, he made a plan specific to my health and metabolic needs. He combines nutritional, behavioral and emotional aspects to the program. I feel wonderful, he changed my life. Thank you.

Posted on November 19, 2013

Thanks to Dr. Petteruti and his team I have my life back! After losing 100 pounds from 2008-2009 I was able to keep it off for about a year and half and soon the weight crept back on until 40 pounds had appeared back on my frame!! Because Dr. Petteruti took the time to listen, address me as an individual case, and send me off for appropriate testing I'm down 37 pounds and I feel BETTER THAN EVER!! Thank you Dr. Petteruti!!

Posted on August 6, 2013

I lost 25 pounds with Dr. Petteruti by learning what is REALLY healthy and not what is promoted as healthy by stores and TV. This wasn't a diet, but truly a new way to look at my eating habits and what's right for me. I feel confident this new ability is a forever change for me. Thank you.

Posted on April 19, 2013

Dr. Petteruti and his staff were just wonderful. I finally came to the realization that I needed to loose weight but couldn't do it on my own. He made me feel welcome, talked to me honestly and realistically about what to expect. He didn't promise me something that wasn't possible for my body type. What a wonderful program he has created. I have recommended his program to many family members and friends.

Posted on May 19, 2013

They are an absolute expert in the field. I would never feel unsafe or apprehensive in their care. Their office was the absolute perfect temperature. It was so nice to be able to get out of the weather outside and sit in a relaxing, comfortable office. I really admire them for being more than willing to ask for help from other professionals in the field when they don't have an answer to my question. They aren't even slightly arrogant, and I'm confident they always have my best interest at heart. When comparing them to bariatric weight loss facilities, they are among the best I have seen.

Posted on March 11, 2013

Dr. Petteruti helped me lose weight. At 285 pounds I was in wheelchair, had both knees and hip replaced, asthma, A1C 10.5, went down to 5.9. I lost 93 pounds down to 192 pounds. I no longer take 4 insulin shots a day, no longer use a wheelchair and am getting back on my weight loss plan. I didn't want to believe it was my weight holding me back BUT IT WAS and just the small gain of weight I feel it. Dr. P and staff are the best. He gave me a new life.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I decided to continue my journey to see if I could lose more, I've since lost 75lbs, with Lorie's help and encouragement!!!! I'm being honest and saying it was a journey that wasn't always easy but I got through it, and it’s well worth it. I am hoping to lose another 10lbs but I know that I will have work a lot harder at this now !!!!! The staff at Dr. Petteruti's office are all so pleasant, I'm 71 and hope to keep this weight off as long I realize it is a lifetime journey.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I met with Dr. Petteruti and decided to try the plan, well I couldn't believe I lost 38 or more pounds, which I have to say I was surprised but my Dr was so pleased with the loss that he did the operation and it went very good!!!!!

Posted on February 21, 2013

I needed a knee replacement and my Dr suggested to see Dr. Petteruti about losing at least 30lbs. I went to see him thinking here I go again trying to lose weight like I have been doing for the last 20 years, but I needed the surgery.

Posted on February 21, 2013

I can't say enough positively about Dr. P. He helped me lose 75 lbs and taught me what I needed to keep it off. He listens to his patients and treats the whole person. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Family Doctor and/or someone looking to lose weight the healthy way.

Posted on February 21, 2013

Dr. Petteruti and the staff at Petteruti Bariatric Medicine are reliable, consistent, honest, but most of all caring. I have always felt they truly care about me as a client. I have never felt rushed and have all my concerns answered. My health was in jeopardy because of my weight, but I couldn't seem to get it off. Dr. Petteruti gave me the tools I needed to take the weight off and most of my health problems. I never thought it was possible. I feel wonderful now.

IV Infusions

Posted on October 10, 2017

After watching the Vitamin Summit online and their recommendations for IV vitamins, I googled to see if there was anything local in RI. Was so excited to find the Drip Bar. I've been twice now and will continue. The staff is wonderful and knowledgeable. Yesterday I received the PowerPak w/Glutathione boosters. Today I feel so much energy, slept like a baby and have an abundance of mental clarity. I highly recommend you experience The Drip Bar and all the great services it offers.

Posted on September 5, 2016

It was a refreshing experience right from the time I walked through the doors of The Drip Bar. I've had more than my share of experiences with doctors and Dr. Stephen Petteruti was kind, compassionate and actually listened. The Vitamin Drip helped my vertigo that I had been living with for the prior two years. I do and will continue to recommend this center to everyone I know!

Posted on May 24, 2016

One of the best experiences I have ever had. Completely professional and knowledgeable staff! I feel fantastic! Can't wait to go back!

I have been getting IV Infusions at The Drip Bar for almost a year now and I can't begin to express my gratitude I have for Dr. Petteruti and his amazing staff. The drips have made a huge impact on my life and they have improved my energy levels and over all health. This place is very professional and definitely somewhere that projects pure class. Can't wait to be back from vacation to get my Post-Flight drip! 

Posted on May 24, 2016

I first used the Drip Bar approximately 1.5 years ago when my immune system was low do to an illness that I just couldn't shake! At that time, I had a vitamin C drip with other nutrients. I started to feel better within less than one day! Now I have chelation therapy for lead poisoning. Although, I know it will take along time to remedy this condition the effects from the therapy gives me great energy and strength! I'm blessed to have Doctor Petteruti as my Doc along with his professional and brilliant staff! Healthy and Happy in Rhode Island!

Posted on October 24, 2015

I am so lucky to have found Dr. Petteruti. Thanks to his medical expertise and open midness I am now on the road to wellness from Chronic Lyme Disease. Without Dr. Petteruti, I would still be searching for answers. Thank you Dr. Petteruti for changing my life and getting me on the road to a healthy life. 

Posted on October 23, 2015

I've suffered from menstrual migraines for 25 years. Dr. Petteruti is the first doctor that has taken the time to listn to me and figure out what my body was missing. Since starting the IV drips a month ago I have not suffered from one migrane!

Posted on August 2, 2015

I'm so grateful to have found The Drip Bar and that this type of integrative/preventive medicine is available locally. Dr. P is extremely knowledgable. He is very proactive and attentive to my son's post Cancer treatment care. I appreciate that he collaborates with my son's oncologist and looks holistically at my son's health. Dr. P is very accessible--always available to answer my questions that come up along the way. The staff is so sweet, compassionate and accommodating. Ashlee who administers my son's IV drip regularly is extremely skilled at what she does. She makes my son feel so comfortable. The drip bar and exam rooms have more of the feel of a spa than any kind of medical facility--a very relaxing atmosphere.

Posted on June 24, 2015

The Drip Bar is the "only" bar I can "live" at. Dr P and staff are beyond knowledgeable. Recommend this for all!!!

Posted on April 17, 2015

Strongly recommend Dr P to all who want optimal health, a Doc who is cutting edge !!! I usually go to NY for this type of care. I welcome this type of care here in RI and look forward to feeling well again!!!

Posted on April 8, 2015

I started on IV vitamin therapy 2 months ago. I've read about it and though how smart it was, infusing our cells with these nutrients. I take the right dose of vitamins my physician recommends but my levels were never at target. Little did I realize my body wasn't absorbing them becuase of my GI issues. Now that I have stated on my IV vitamins I feel better than I have in years. My energy is through the roof, my workouts are stronger, I sleep better, and my mind is sharper. Functional and Intergrated medicine is the future of medicine and happy I'm on the right path. Thank you to The Petteruti Center for this opportunity for increased heatlh. 

Concierge Dr.

Posted on May 16, 2018

Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!! 1. Staff is friendly, up beat, professional and welcoming. 2. Dr. Souza is SUPER thougough!!! He took the time to listen to me and my concerns. Funny how he asked questions on my blood work that I asked my primary and my primary blew it off. He was like "ummmmm..... no..... there's a reason it's off". Lots of testing done. Nothing was forced on me. I was comfortable the whole time. The place is immaculate!!! Warm and inviting while being a professional medical facility. So happy I found them!!!!

Posted on March 8, 2018

This is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the BEST form of medicine I have ever been involved in, along with the best doctor who provides it. Although, not cheap, our decision to go with this is simply, you cannot put a price on your health.

Posted on July 26, 2017

The moment you walk into the office you are immediately relaxed. This is unlike any other offie I have seen. The staff is so friendly and makes you feel they care about your experience. My consult with Dr. Petteruti was thorough and well thought out. He listened to me and we talked for over an hour. I loved that he didn't have a computer in front of him, just a piece of paper to jot down notes. I am now a concierge client for primary care and looking forward to doing some IV vitamin drips. 

Posted on July 25, 2017

When you are seeking a physician that genuinely cares about your health and well being, Dr Peteruti does just that. He gives each patient individual attention and truly listens to what is being said. His unique way of addressing health issues is refreshing.

Posted on January 6, 2017

I was introduced to Dr. Petteruti  by a co-worker and this has been the best experience I have ever had with a Dr. I can't say enough about the positive results I have had since I been going.  I would highly recommend Dr. Petteruti and his staff .

Posted on October 27, 2015

Dr. Petteruti and his staff are amazing! I have been a true advocate of alternative medicine and joining the concierge at The Petteruti Center has been such a blessing. The Drip Bar is truly the BEST way to maintaining health, well-being and a positive lifestyle! I'm a believer! Thank you so much Dr. Petteruti.

Posted on June 3, 2015

Functional and Integrated medicine at its best. His depth of knowledge far surpasses any physician I have know. If he isn't well versed on the subject he spends time finding the current research and WILL get back to you about it. He is now my concierge doctor and I couldn't be happier!

Posted on December 1, 2014

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. 

Posted on January 21, 2014

Dr. Petteruti has been caring for our family for 15 years. I am so confident every time I leave his office. He is caring, competent and very knowledgeable about his field. He doesn't just look at a condition, but your body as a whole and how it can affect you. He is highly recommended by myself, and my family.

Posted on November 21, 2013

The tradition continues with Dr. Petteruti. As a child I had the pleasure of having his dad as my doctor. Now as an adult I have the continued great care of the Petteruti Family Practice. 50 years together and going stronger than ever.

Posted on September 2, 2013

 This is a great doctor. I enjoy his thoroughness and feel that he really listens to me. His staff is also very good. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a doctor and practice that really gets that people are looking to be involved with their health and are on the leading edge of the newest medical information. 

Posted on October 20, 2013

 I have been going to this Doctor for almost 20 years and I can assure you that he is excellent. Even after moving to Massachusetts I still continue to keep him as my primary despite the drive.

Posted on September 30, 2013

It's rare you find a physician who you feel actually gets you. Any other physician I feel rushes you to get to their next patient, but Dr. Petteruti spends the time to listen. He takes into account not just the medical aspect, but family, work and stresses that may be affecting you to give you a more well-rounded approach to health care. I highly recommend him to give you the care your looking for.

Posted on May 28, 2009

Dr. Petteruti is a really down to earth guy who you can talk to and not feel judged. He has been very good to me and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a family practioner. 

Posted on January 27, 2013

A most wonderful physician. Extremely knowledgeable, patient, answers all questions, and has a wonderful personality. He genuinely cares about his patients - A rare find! 

Posted on October 1, 2009

Excellent clinician with a great bedside manner. A gentleman who in nonjudgemental and interested in his patients needs. Holistic approach. Staff is helpful, polite and non-harried. Something no longer seen in the healthcare realm. Most other offices are rushed and too busy to be caring. I would highly recommend his office to anyone looking for a famiy practice. Did I mention thorough in his assessment of your problem? He will follow through on your care. 

Posted on July 21, 2013

I have been having a hard time controlling my diabetes for the past year or so. Every time I went to my old doctor it seemed like he was always referring me out to another doctor. Maybe he couldn't be bothered with me? As most, both my husband and I work full time and have 2 children, 6 and 9 yrs. Between work and getting the kids off to school/activities, I've neglected to follow up with specialists for myself. A coworker told me about Dr. Petteruti and I decided it was time to make the switch.

When I walked in the waiting room was full. The girl at the desk, Ashlee, who I quickly learned is the go-to girl to get things done ASAP, was on the phone and gave me a smile. I asked her how many doctors were in the office, she replied just Dr. Petteruti. I was impressed to see so many people waiting to see him! I told Ashlee that I didn't get my old records as she had recommended when I called. She said no problem and had me sign a release and even got all my old doctors info for me. I waited 45 minutes and not once did I hear anyone complain so I knew it was worth it. When Dr. Petteruti finally came in the room he had my notes and blood work from my old doctor already! That was fast! He was very friendly from the start which eased my nerves. He read through my old notes and asked me about my medications. He also asked about my family and work. I could tell he cared about all aspects of my well being. He spent over 30 minutes really getting to know me. At the end of the visit he sent me off with blood work and a few medication changes and most importantly he said we are going to get you better. I felt confident he would!

When I walked out the girl at the front was having a hard time finding an appointment in 3 weeks for my annual. She called over Ashlee who quickly found a place to squeeze me in. When she gave me my card for my next visit I joked that I need to get home fast before I forget what I'm supposed to do with my medications. She handed me my notes from my visit and said this should help. It had all my medications and how/when to take them. I was blown away that an office as a whole could care so much. As I waited to get blood work I watched the staff. This was not an act, they treated everyone like this. Smiling and taking the time to help. I was so impressed I called my husband at work. He has since switched to Dr. Petteruti. I feel healthier and more like myself now more than ever and I would have never been able to do it without Dr. Petteruti!! Great doc and A team!!!

Dr. Petteruti is a good doctor. He takes a very modern approach to medicine, and puts a high priority on alleviating discomfort when possible, and treating the whole person. His staff is VERY nice. I've never felt rushed. He has a very busy practice, and you can expect to wait in the waiting room for at least a half hour. He does have various office hours, however, to accommodate most schedules, with appointments ranging from approx. 6am to almost 8pm.

I've been a patient of Dr. Petteruti for many years. He is super knowledgeable. Very-friendly - always answers my questions and takes extra time to explain things. His is very intelligent and on the leading edge of health. He's not just the type of doctor who treats symptoms. He is very much interested in helping you live a healthier lifestyle. I recommend him highly. -S.R.

Thank you for believing in me I am smoke free now for 82 days..I trust you with my health and life..

I have been seeing Dr. Petteruti since I was sixteen years old. I am now 23. Not only has he helped me with my health; which because of him is exceptional, but he also took on a fatherly role and gave advice for many of the struggles I faced as I grew into a man. I trust and admire this man not only as a Doctor but as a person with whom I can readily confide. I am grateful for the wisdom he often gives freely. His practice seeks to treat both the physical ailments of life as well as the emotional scars it can leave. I can't imagine a better doctor.

He believed in my husband when it seemed everyone was ready to write him off as a disability case. My husband is only 50!!!!!!!! We just got back from a weekend visit in VT where we went for hikes and sight-seeing!! I have my husband back!!! Thank you Dr. Petteruti!!!

My husband had major surgery 5 months ago. His recovery was long and he fell into a depression. His doctors wanted to put him on anti-depressants and he was facing disability. I had heard of the wonderful things that Dr. Petteruti was doing through a friend of mine who lives in RI. At first I was a little skeptical, after all we are from MA, where my husband had the top surgeon from Boston operate on him....well we made the apt. and about one month later my husband had his appetite back, went back to work FULL TIME! He also joined a gym!!! The difference is nothing less than a miracle! The whole experience was wonderful from beginning to end. He even included me in on the first visit…we love him…finally a doctor who actually cares!!

Posted on February 21, 2013

Asthma, allergy, dermatology, gynecology, respiratory......he does it all amazingly well. You will have to wait to be seen. Sometimes that wait can be long, but rest assured when it is your turn you will have all the time you need. I not only would recommend him to anyone looking for a new physician, but have. The people that I have referred have thanked me repeatedly and have switched there children and other family members as well. I came to Dr. Petteruti with two daughters in their early teens, not the easiest patients to deal with. They both love him and would never go anywhere else. Although they are away at college now, they both not only make appointments for when they are home, but call his office whenever they have a problem even though they are 1300 miles away.
PROS: Too many to mention
CONS: None

Dr. Petteruti truly exemplifies what a family doctor should be. He cares about his patients taking time to listen to each of them as individual. He is compassionate and intelligent. You never feel as though he is rushing to get from one room to the next. As a matter of fact, the opposite of that is much closer to the truth. When he is treating you, you are the only patient that matters at that time. You are never rushed or feel like you didn't have a chance to say or discuss something. If you are looking for a physician who can manage all aspects of your care, then look no further. He does not refer you to specialist after specialist. Specialists are only utilized when the problem can not be resolved or are much too complex.

Dr. Petteruti makes me feel very comfortable. He takes his time and really listens to me without feeling like he needs to rush out the door. Highly recommend him.

Posted on February 19, 2013

Courteous, respectful and easy to talk to. He should give speeches to other doctors in correct bedside manner. I would recommend Dr. Petteruti to my friends and family. I needed to get in to see him on short notice. He had office hours on Tuesday night at 6:00 pm!

Posted on January 3, 2013

I went to see Dr. Petteruti after a referral from a friend. I wasn't happy with the physician I was seeing. I felt that I was always rushed and wasn't always listening to what I was telling him. I felt immediately comfortable when I walked into the office. Dr.Petteruti took his time finding out my complete history asking questions no one has ever asked before. He really does treat the whole person. I am very thankful I found him.

I can't say enough positively about Dr. P. He helped me loose 75 lbs and taught me what I needed to keep it off. He listens to his patients and treats the whole person. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Family Doctor and/or someone looking to loose weight the healthy way.

Posted on January 11, 2013

I've been overweight my whole life and at 48 years old just decided that this was my life. But it didn't have to be that way. Dr. P helped me loose 85 lbs! He is caring and takes his time with you. As a family doc there is no one like him.
He looks at you as a whole person, not treating a specific item. I love this guy, he changed my life.

Posted on July 21, 2012

With a caring heart and brilliant mind, Dr. Petteruti has a way of treating you with respect and dignity. I couldn't ask for a better family doctor.

Posted on January 27, 2013

Dr. Petteruti has been our family physician for 10 years. He is knowledgeable, caring and has a bedside manner that other doctors should learn from.

Posted on January 23, 2013

Dr. Petteruti has exemplified what a family physician should be. His bedside manner is impeccable. He is courteous and respectful and looks at your body system as a whole. He gets back to you when he says he would and his office staff answers the phone!

I have been going to Dr.Petteruti for years, and now my husband goes, my adult aged daughter goes, and now my niece goes. He literally is our family doctor, and we all love him for it. He has helped me personally with continuous issues I have had to face, more than one person should have to. He made sure I went to the best doctors and hospitals, even though I had to travel to New York, Sloan Kettering, I
could not be more happier with the results and he made it all happen. If he cannot fix your issue he will make sure the best does. I OWE HIM an awful lot, my life, and my families as well. He is a great role model and truly cares about your health and well being mentally and physically. To many more years together Dr. P, you are the best…

This is not only an AWESOME DOCTOR, but an awesome human being, highly recommended!!!!

Dr. P has been with my family for 17 years and we wouldn't see anyone else! He's very thorough and takes his time with us. He's just a great person all around! I've recommended him to several friends who see him now and will continue to do so!

The Center

I started many many years ago (as did my entire family) by going to Dr Petteruti's father, Joe. Once he retired and his son took over I became a patient of Stephen Petteruti since the day he opened his practice many years ago and I would never go to another doctor. He is up to date on all new that is medical, he is kind and compassionate and understanding. Something once only found in old school doctors long ago. He carries on that same mentality as far as I am concerned. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease, not hurried and rushed as far to many other doctors do. If I could I would give 10 stars. I highly recommend Dr. Petteruti.

Posted on March 12, 2016

Dr. Petteruti listens and is very compassionate about what you go through. His staff is initially the reason I went ahead and booked my appt. The young lady on the phone was so sweet and informative about what he offers and how attentive he is towards his patients. She was right, he really will go above and beyond to make sure you live a healthy lifestyle and get you on the right path. Thanks again for everything Dr. Petteruti and your wonderful staff!

Amazing practice. The staff is friendly, nice and always pleasant. Dr Petteruti has the best manor of any doctor I have experienced. His knowledge is cutting edge and current. He truly cares about my well being as a whole, not just specific issues. 

Posted on August 6, 2015

Dr. Petteruti and his staff are fantastic in terms of their commitment and involvement with the whole patient, creating a supportive and learning environment with great results as an outcome. I am now the healthiest I have ever been. Thank you!

Dr. Petteruti and The Petteruti Center for Life Extension is the best practice in Rhode Island. Dr. Petteruti is an amazing doctor and very knowledgeable. He takes his time with you and explains everything in detail. The staff is very professional and courteous. I feel that I am in great hands and that I have a great team behind me to help keep me healthy and young.

Posted on November 5, 2013

He was by far one of the best I've ever seen in his field. It was obvious that he's been exceeding his clients' expectations for many years. The staff never left me for an extended period of time and I never felt ignored. They always return my phone calls quickly. Highly recommend him for a primary care physician and anti-aging specialist. 

Posted on July 21, 2013

I was trying to find another doctors office. My phone was dead so I stopped and asked for directions. The woman accidentally sent me to Dr. Petteruti's office. I asked if I was in the right place and the secretary, kind of laughing, said no he is on Tollgate Road. She started to explain how to get there then told me to hold on. I was furious at this point. Little did I know she put his address in map quest and printed directions from her office to the other doctor's office. That was unexpected and so nice! I'm calling this week to change my doctor.

Posted on August 9, 2012

I would like to thank Dr. Petteruti and staff for such a warm welcome to their Family Practice. Immediately I recognized the knowledge and care I was receiving from Dr. Stephen Petteruti and really looking forward to making some great progress with my health. Thanks again :)

Dr. Petteruti is not only very knowledgeable in his profession, he is also very caring, understanding and takes a genuine interest in his patients well being....

Posted on February 21, 2013

If you are really sincere about getting and staying healthy, Dr Petteruti is the man you want to see.

Posted on February 21, 2013

So to both of you, I thank you more than words can say, so you will just have to settle for these words, Thank-You!

Posted on February 21, 2013

Dr. Petteruti and Shannon, Thank you both so very much, for all the patience and kindness you have given to me over the years. As I have fallen low, you have both picked me up, dusted me off and encouraged me to try a new route in life. You have also taught me that I am not a combination of diseases, but instead a vibrant and giving part of society.

Posted on February 21, 2013

After almost four years of being a patient of Dr. Stephen Petteruti and the Petteruti Center I can proudly share that it has been a life-changing experience! I feel wonderful inside and out. You are a great team!
