Weight Loss Program
At our I.M. 120 Centers for Weight Loss, we employ experts in the art and science of weight-loss medicine. We recognize that no two people are the same and that there’s no "secret weight-loss formula" that works for everyone. That’s why every weight loss plan is customized to the specific needs of each individual client.
Our techniques involve a combination of behavioral modifications, nutritional guidance, motivational interviewing, and the most advanced prescription medications available. Clients meet regularly with our counselors as we carefully track each client’s eating behaviors and vital signs to make sure that progress is made in a safe and healthy way.
How We Do it - Consultation
Your journey will start with a phone call to our office: 401-921-5934. We will take some basic information and schedule your consultation with Dr. Petteruti. Blood work will be ordered and conducted before your consultation.
1. Intake with Dr. Petteruti: An expanded medical history and physical will be performed as well as laboratory analysis to help guide recommendations for your prescription and nutraceutical treatments. You will then meet weekly in a group session for 8 weeks, follow by 16 weeks of bi-weekly (every other week) group sessions. At the end of this time, if you are at your goal weight, you can continue on into the maintenance program. If you have not yet achieved your goal weight, you can continue into Step Two until the desired weight is achieved.

Treatment - Step 2
At the end of your phase 1 treatment, an analysis of your weight loss and body composition will be performed. If you are at your goal weight you will be directed toward the maintenance program. If you have more weight to lose we will be recommending phase 2 treatment. Phase 2 consists of every other week meetings with your weight loss counselor until you reach your goal weight - however long that may be. Remember, we are all individuals and lose weight at different speeds. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet.
After you lost the weight...now what? We believe that the key to long-term success is continued guidance and support to help you maintain all that you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
