About Dr. Prab R. Tumpati

Dr. Prab R. Tumpati is board certified in Internal Medicine, Sleep Medicine and is board eligible in the new Obesity Medicine. Dr. Tumpati's passion is prevention rather than cure. As a physician with fellowship training in Obesity Medicine, Dr. Tumpati has a unique approach to wellness, weight loss and prevention. Dr. Tumpati takes pride in helping patients come of many chronic life style medications such as blood pressure, cholesterol or diabetes medications by helping them lose weight and change their life style. According to research published from the Yale Institute of Prevention, up to 90 percent of diabetes, 80% of cardiovascular disease and 60% of cancers are preventable! We provide both primary care, preventive care, sleep disorder management and physician supervised weight loss and wellness program. As we accept health insurance for weight loss and wellness, unlike most other programs that are "cash only", the demand is high and acceptance is limited to 10 new patients a week at this time due to limitations in the physician time. Since screening and preventive services are now covered 100 percent by most insurances including Medicare, thanks to the new health care law passed in 2010, you might be able to live healthy, and lose weight under physician supervision without having to spend out of pocket. It is now a well established fact that Sleep Disorders, Metabolic Problems and Weight Gain are very inter related. Having been also board certified in sleep medicine, Dr. Tumpati is well versed in the management of Sleep Apnea, Narcolepsy, Rest Less Leg Syndrome, Hypersomnia, day time sleepiness etc. and is the medical director of our state of the art sleep diagnostic and treatment centers. You can call us at 1-800-W8MD-007 to learn more about our services.

Well the doctor was not Dr. Tumpati which was fine. Beside manner was great except he had a really really badcough. The receptionist was ok until I started to question her about the time. Another patient did the same and she got a really bad attitude. I can understand the frustration but she could have tried to be more patient with the customers because we were waiting for almost 2 to fours hours. Now would I go back of course because I need to doctor however they need to add more staff because the weight time is extremely crazy

My husband & I had a family emergency so we finally got to call the office about 2 hours after out appointment. The doctor wanted to at least have either the nutritionist or PA check our vital signs. We went and when we were seen my blood pressure was high. The nutritionist reported to the doctor a d hevadjusted my new meds and had us make a new appointment in 2 weeks. I thought this was very diligent care especially after I found out that there were 85 patients scheduled for the day. Most doctor offices would not have had us come in and just rescheduled us on the phone!!!

I went to Dr. Tumpati after a failed attempt years ago with another well know diet doctor in the Philadelphia area for help with weight loss, during the initial visit/ consultation I found out my blood pressure was very high. I was already on medication for it. The Dr. upped the medication and gave me a sleep test to take home. He seemed genuinely concerned about controlling my blood pressure before starting the diet regiment. I need this overall lifestyle change and I think I came to the right place.

I felt rushed, I think he should show more respect for the patient and give them his undivided attention and really care about what he is doing for them , not only to give the same pill to everyone but also listen to the concern that his patients have. Ok

as with everything else in NYC its never about quality, always about money. on any given day there are 10-20 patients waiting to see the doctor in an office inadequate to handle that many people. theres no privacy and everyone hears all your business. everybody's nice enough but the front end staff is clearly overwhelmed. and if you ever need your medical records don't bother calling or faxing your request- just go in and get them. eat before you go, you'll be there a while.

Appointment date: 11/17/2016 at 4:30pm My visit, today, at W8MD, happily exceeded my expectation. Dr Tumpati, his associate and staff were were all cordial and treated me with the utmost professionalism. Even though it was late in the day, I never felt rushed. All of my questions were addressed in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. I would gladly recommend Dr. Tumpati and his practice to a friend. Emily C.

Today was my first time here and I felt very comfortable for it being my first time. The front desk lady was very sweet and helpful she was very nice. Dr. Tumpati- was very thorough and made it easy for me to talk to him & explain what I needed and what I'm dealing with. He was extremely quick once I was called in for consultation. He was a wonderful help and I hope I will achieve my goals and become a better and healthier me that I once was. For me, this is not just about losing weight, I want to feel happy and love the skin I'm in. We live only one life & I want the help so I can live a healthy long life and have the help I need to maintain my weight. And I hope this is the place to help me get to that place. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs an extra push to better themselves. Thank you so much Dr. Tumpati... I hope we can work together and have an excellent outcome!!

It was my first visit, the doctor was very, very nice, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. The women in the office were very kind and patient. The office was packed! There was a bit of a wait. I got there early to fill out paperwork(everything is done on a tablet!) but it was quick. I always expect a wait at a doctor so I plan for it.

Today was my first day (consultation), Dr. Tumpati was very short with me and did not present a welcoming feeling to me. It felt like the consultation was routine (robotic). None the less my objective was not to become his friend but to find solution to my weight issue. However, when speaking to his son (the nutrient counselor) it was a MUCH better experience, he was very attentive and offered excellent customer service/advice instructions and although my consultation with the counselor was abruptly interrupted by Tumpati which to me seemed like an indirect sign to say "end this meeting" I will be back in 2 weeks for a follow up. I look forward to my new me.
