Founder, W8MD medical weight loss centers

Dr Prab R. Tumpati, MD our medical director is a board certified physician with training and experience in the fields of Sleep Medicine, Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine.

As the founder of W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America, Dr Tumpati is one of the few medical weight loss physicians in New York City with a thorough education in the new field of obesity medicine and is familiar with the science and art of treating overweight or obese patients, both adults and pediatric patient populations.

Dr. Tumpati obtained his medical degree from Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, India and completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Abington Memorial Hospital, Abington, PA.

With weight loss and sleep medicine offices in 3 states, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Dr. Tumpati divides his time between his offices in Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York city treating seeing patients for medical weight loss and sleep disorders. As he is also an internal medicine physician, he does accept a few primary care patients with a focus on preventive care.

Dr. Tumpati is familiar with and is experienced in using the various evidence based tools in order to help his patients in NYC lose weight fast and safe under medical supervision including appetite suppressants or diet pills when medically appropriate. Dr. Tumpati can prescribe any weight loss medications including the traditional diet medications and the new diet medications when clinically appropriate.

Unlike many weight loss doctors in NYC, Dr. Tumpati spends a lot of time educating patients on the true causes of weight gain including the complex hormonal, metabolic, nutritional, sleep related and other factors causing weight gain. Instead of the usual approach of “blame the patient” for weight gain, he truly understands that it may be the fault of the individual patient for weight gain as many of the factors leading to weight gain may be beyond the control of the individual patient.

Dr. Tumpati’s focus is reversing the true causes of weight gain for sustained and effective weight loss in NYC instead of a quick fix for long term weight loss success in NYC. Dr. Tumpati is very passionate about educating the public on weight management, wellness, nutrition and sleep disorders and has been interviewed by both print magazines, TV stations, and Radio shows.
