It is our passion to help patients reach their goals, and it gives us tremendous joy to see many of our patients come off of many chronic life style medications such as blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes medications, get rid of CPAP for sleep apnea after successfully losing weight! Our biggest loser lost 75 pounds, reached their goal weight, and has been able to keep the weight off in the maintenance phase.
I spotted a pamphlet in a doctor’s waiting room on W8MD. This peeked my interest and I read on. “Are you tired of being overweight?” I was!
As I read further I discovered that not only was this a center for weight loss but also for sleep problems. My husband had told me that I was snooring very loudly at night and that it seemed I stopped breathing at times.
I called and scheduled an appointment with the doctor. Dr. Tumpati was very through in explaining to me the reason for my increased weight was due to insulin resistance. We also scheduled a sleep study and found that I stopped breathing an average of 38 times per hour due to sleep apnea! read more

Most Physicians have nothing to offer their overweight or obese patients other than simply say “lose weight”. This is not useful to be simply told to “lose weight” as this does not offer the support, program, tools, medications, and other things you need to lose weight.
