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.
