Beth Rocchio, MD ~ Board Certified Weight Management Physician (Hahnemann University, 1997)

My name is Beth Rocchio MD, people call me Dr Beth. I work as a holistic, integrated, mind-body physician at the medical practice I founded: Integrated Medical Weight Loss. I love to share how whole person medicine can help in all parts of our life, not just weight. I am passionate about helping people reach their goals and overcome any obstacles they may be facing. 

Originally from Long Island, NY; I attended Skidmore (Psychology Honors) & Goucher (PreMed) Colleges; Hahnemann-Drexel Medical School; Family Medicine Residency-Beaver, PA; Obstetrics Fellowship-Brown University. I have board certification in Weight Management Medicine. 

During life's trials and tribulations, I experienced bumps and bruises and had some unhealthy coping strategies like Ben & Jerry's. I experienced burnout after the fellowship and hit rock bottom on May 5, 2003 when I embarked on a healing journey that continues to this moment, including maintaining a fifty pound weight loss. While my healing journey began with a 12 step program, I learned it wasn't the right fit for most people. I've spent decades exploring countless ways to heal and that is what I Iove to share all day long with people. I continue to learn each day so I can spread my knowledge because my passion is teaching others to cope with their struggles and overcome things that once were unobtainable.

Integrated Medical Weight Loss

Patrice French, RNP, Nurse Practitioner (Northeastern University, 1985)

I have worked with Dr. Rocchio at IMWL as an Adult Nurse Practitioner since 2010.

I am constantly learning about obesity and all facets of it through workshops, reading multiple books, speaking with people in the obesity field and meeting with patients.

I believe that weight and issues surrounding our weight are comprehensive and multi-factorial and that obesity is a chronic, relapsing, remitting disease.

At our initial visit, I obtain a complete history of your life with food starting as a child and discuss triggers, trigger foods, stressors.  We also review your medical, family and social history.

My role is to guide, educate and help you set goals to help you achieve a lifestyle change through nutrition, exercise and emotional guidance. I have a personal passion for helping people with binge eating disorder and working on this very complex issue.

I believe in the body's ability to heal itself emotionally and physically.
