Whether you’re an anti-aging or, like me, a pro-aging advocate you’re going to love this episode.
An honors English graduate from Tufts University, Dr. Stephen Petteruti continued on to medical school to become a Family Practice Physician. In 2014, with a holistic, patient-centered approach, Dr. Petteruti launched Intellectual Medicine 120—offering concierge medical services, functional medicine, facial anti-aging treatments, and advanced techniques to manage the body’s aging process.
His next step was to bring the science of cellular health to Intellectual Medicine 120 with the addition of IV Vitamin Infusions—in a state-of-the-art, relaxing environment offering chelation therapy, high dose vitamin C for cancer clients, and lifestyle drips. Along with his wife Shannon, he is the founder of the DRIPBaR centers for IV vitamin therapy.
