I have been a patient of Dr.Tumpati for a year now, when I first came to him I was at a low point in my life .. my weight wasn't getting out of control. Tumpati has changed my life.. I have not taken pills for a year consecutively as that would be unhealthy .. I normally do 1-2 months on then 2-3 months off. The results have been amazing .. I feel SO much lighter, better, I would highly recommend him to anyone having difficultly loosing that stubborn weight.

Money hungry "Dr." Run as fast as you can. He will avoid telling you the dangerous side affects and generic pills he overcharges.

There are so many wonderful reviews online for W8MD and Dr. Tumpati. What a joke. I made an appointment and gave it a shot, with high expectations. My first visit was the best of the three, but still not as welcoming as I had anticipated. It is all very informal, for a "doctors" office. There is no real reception area, so the "check in" consists of walking into a room and interrupting someone who is in the middle of discussing their appointment, to let Laura (the "receptionist/nurse?") know yo

I felt that he is interested in getting your for your money to sell u diet pills and pre packaged diet foods that he has stocked in his office. There is no miracle diet cure to weight loss with diet pills and pre packaged diet foods. His family works there his kids are there I felt that it's all another way to convince fat obese people that there is hope and with miracle diet pills once you stop taking them whatever weight you lost you will gain back double.
