Dr. Stephen Petteruti


A second-generation family doctor, Dr. Petteruti started off pursuing his goal of being a holistic provider of medicine, starting his medical training in Osteopathic Medicine.  After graduating with honors, he became attracted to weight loss medicine, which began a career-long interest in areas not commonly pursued by most doctors.  It’s that curiosity that drove him to become board certified in Bariatric Medicine to complement his board certification in Family Medicine.  It is this unique training combined with his own native intellect that has given Dr. Petteruti the ability to help his patients with problems that most physicians do not fully understand.

“Too often in medicine” says Dr. Petteruti, “we are left pursuing well worn pathways and if the patient’s condition doesn’t comfortably fit into that pathway, we feel incapable of helping them.  The patients tell us what they need and what they need is to feel better, live longer, and live better.  That’s the passion that drives my practice.”

In 2014, Dr. Petteruti completed his fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic, and Functional Medicine. The fellowship is derived from the root causes of chronic diseases that affect patients every day, offering a comprehensive and holistic approach for treating the patients—not solely the symptoms.

Dr. Petteruti has been pursuing that passion for more than 25 years, bringing a hard to find combination of empathy, intellect, clinical and didactic experience to help change the lives of his patients. His approach is holistic, comprehensive, complete and driven to pursue the solutions to the most difficult of problems.

This two hour seminar will review all of the most effective prescription medicines, both on and off label, for treating obesity. More importantly, you will learn which combination of drugs work best and in it which doses to use them. If you are not actively treating obesity, this will be your springboard into this life-changing arena of medicine.
