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.

Appointment date: 11/17/2016 at 4:30pm My visit, today, at W8MD, happily exceeded my expectation.

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.

Very informative and to the point
As busy as the office is - the staff is always pleasant - Dr Tumpati is wonderful and very supportive
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!!
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.
Very informative and they answer all questions. Very professional and friendly
Nice Doctor great points on my health. Wasn't prepared for the price of the items from my visit beforehand.
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.
There is sometimes a wait, but it is always a pleasant experience - everyone is so nice and accommodating
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.
Staff is very courteous and understanding. Doctor is very attentive.
He was descriptive and informative. It was easy to understand and grasp the situation.
Dr Tumpati was very Professional and personable. He truly cares about his Patients and it shows in his attentiveness and Professional manner in which he cares for his patients.
Secretary called him away and he left in the middle of my sentence. I got the feeling overall that he was not listening to me.
Today was my first visit. So my review is what I experienced today. The doctor was very thorough with the exam and questions of my medical history. I was weighed, blood pressure taken, EKG, breathing test to check your metabolism, measurements etc. I made a follow up appointment for 2 weeks from today so far so good.
With this Dr, I just had the most pathetic experience i have had with any physician. First of all The Dr had me in his office and was so busy talking on the phone for atleast 15 minutes explaining state and fed tax related stuff. Apparently today is the last day to file the taxes, he said later... Secondly The Dr had no clue about what my symptoms are. He was with his laptop all along and was kind of asking me the same questions again and again... Thirdly and this is the most ridiculous part, i went in for a common cold and a small knee pain and asked if i had temperature. He cooly replied they dont have a thermometer in their office. I gave up... I m never going back to this Dr again...
Dr Tumpati listens and shows empathy which makes him a great doctor and that's besides his qualifications.
He was a very professional and knowledgeable doctor He is very friendly, really nice and he always gives the best explanation and plan of treatment ! He makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed, he takes time to listen to his patients. would highly recommend.
Dr Prab R. Tumpati is a outstanding doctor. He is just great
Very personable and still professional. Dr. Tumpati always takes the time to answer questions and is very thorough
My appt with Dr Tumpati was great he asked me questions about the problems that I've been having and after I answered him we discussed it. He was very professional but very down to earth as well. I will definitely be seeing him in the future. And his secratery/nurse Laura has been excellent as well there was a problem getting a medication filled it had to be pre authorized and she made many phone calls to make sure that I was able to get the medication filled!!! So my overall experience at this office was excellent!!!!
The Staff and Doctor were the best. Very careing and helpful.
Dr. Prab is a compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who has really helped me with my chronic insomnia and weight loss issues. He has great bedside manner, I trust him and he has taught me a lot. He and his staff has really come through for me many times. They are all very nice. They are a great team. Very professional, kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Prab to anyone who wants to walk out feeling good and cared about and having their sleep and or weight issues under control. Thank you Dr. Prab and staff.

It was my first visit and I was very impressed. He took a lot of time with me and was very thorough.
Dr. Tumpati and staff were very courteous. The doctor took time to explain my condition, the methods to treat it, and his recommendation for treatment in my particular case. I was not rushed in and out in 5 minutes as with many other doctors. I would recommend Dr. Tumpati to others.
Not helpful at all. Just trying to get your money.
I booked an appointment with Dr. Tumpati because I have sleep apnea and need to see a local sleep doctor since I relocated. I was under the impression that I was attending a medical office to see a sleep medicine professional. First of all, this is first and foremost a shady peddler of appetite suppressants and dietary meal replacements. This is not inherently a bad thing, but to attract and accept patients under the guise of sleep medicine, when your real business is selling prepackaged foods and pills, is quite deceptive. I completely understand the connection between weight and sleep, and I think a comprehensive approach is important, but this is strictly selling. They did not take a medical history, but rather "weighed me in" in a room where another patient was walking in and out. The woman who was weighing me in said she was going to "keep in that extra quarter inch," because "every inch counts," as though I were in some sort of weight loss competition. They asked no questions about drug or other allergies, alcohol or drug use, or anything that is in a standard medical office visit. It also appears they are dispensing prescriptions in the office. The secretary was selling prescriptions to a woman while I was in there, and they were openly negotiating price and dosage, which was alarming to say the least. There was no pharmacist present, and when I inquired about it, the secretary said, "The FDA knows about it!" The office has random rooms full of boxes and it does not feel like a professional medical environment. There were signs for "Weight Loss Centers of America" taped up with Scotch tape, and there were several signs printed on an ink jet printer comparing the cost of "groceries" (an arbitrary number) with the cost of a "very low calorie diet." He showed me a website with a "testimonial" of a patient, and if you look around online, it is the only before and after picture they have. They are using almost entirely stock photos for everything. I asked if they had any other testimonials, but there were none but Carl, the guy on the website. The "program," which he said was very full and hard to get into, but he "would consider taking me on as a patient," would involve paying a monthly maintenance fee on top of my insurance copay and the price of the medication and meal supplements. Mind you, I was supposed to be having a consultation about my CPAP, and I was hearing the details of a weight loss program they are running out of a basement in Brooklyn. This is not a professional medical practice, and I highly recommend you never visit this practice or this doctor.
I felt that he was impatient and very pushy when it came to having me tested for sleep apnea, despite me declining the test several times.
Took my money for a "consultation" but did not inform me to bring any recent blood work. I asked when making the appointment would I be able to walk out with a prescription they said yes instead it was- oh make another appointment (another co-pay) and and bring in your blood work- NO that's ok, it's unprofessional, and the trip was way too far for me to consider that as an option.
Takes his time with you to explain everything, very thorough
Dr. Tumpati is an excellent doctor. He diagnosed and has treated my sleep apnea and the we began on a weight loss regime. He is knowledgeable in areas of nutrition and has been enabling me to lose when I had not been able to do so. I recommend him highly.
I would most definitely recommend to go to here. They are very nice helpful and know what they are doing and talking about, I can see that the doctor has experience for sure.
I like the Doc he seem's to know what he's talking about nice guy .
Dr. Tumpati is an excellent doctror. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of the services he provides.
