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!!!!

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.

Prab R Tumpati, MD
Prab R Tumpati, MD
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 both the traditional weight loss medications also called diet pills such as Phentermine (Adipex), Phendimetrazine (Bontril), Diethyl propion(Tenuate), Orlistat(Xenical) and the new weight loss medications such as Phentermine and Topiramate(Qsymia), Lorcaserin(Belviq), Bupropion / Naltrexone (Contrave), and Liraglutide (Saxenda).

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.
