Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD

Sleep Medicine Specialist, Primary Care Doctor, Internist

Professional statement

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.

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. Iwas 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 alsolisten 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 hearsall 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.

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 meto 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 thereearly 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 friendbut 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.

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, measurementsetc. 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 andfed 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...
