Most Physicians Have Nothing To Offer Their Over Weight Or Obese Patients Other Than Simply Say “lose Weight!” Or Hand Out A Diet Sheet! This Is Not Useful For Most Patients As Obesity Needs A More Thorough And A Structured Program With On Going Support.
W8MD is a physician supervised medical weight loss and wellness program offering non-surgical physician weight loss program that accepts most insurances for physician visits. Did You Know That The 2010 Affordable Care Act Mandates Insurance Coverage For Screening And Treatment For All Adults For Obesity?
Under the direction of Dr. Prab Tumpati, W8MD Weight Loss Centers was founded a year ago because of his passion to overcome obesity and to make a difference. Dr. Tumpati has passed a written board examination in the field of Bariatric Medicine and is also Board Certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine. The doctor’s of W8MD partner with each patient to develop a custom weight management program to best meet their individual needs taking into account their medical history, lifestyle and goals.
Since weight and sleep go together, most of the W8MD centers are able to address sleep issues such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome to name a few. And the best part of the program is that most insurance’s cover the doctor visits. If you have a little or a lot of weight to lose and want to do it without surgery, set up fees and mandatory meal replacements or appetite suppressants, think W8MD for weight loss.
If you are a physician, with an interest in helping your obese or overweight patients, and would like to add a W8MD program at your office, please feel free to contact us.
