W8MD was started by two obesity medicine physicians, Dr. Henry C. Sobo, MD and Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD with a passion to help patients lose weight and lead a healthy life style. Having completed his Internal Medicine residency training at the Maimonides Medical Center in New York City in the year 1985, Dr. Sobo was struggling personally with a weight problem. Utilizing a well balanced Very Low Calorie Diet(VLCD), he lost 75 lbs. just about a year later. With this life changing personal experience, Dr Sobo decided to help others who had the same important need to lose weight and improve their health. Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD, founder of W8MD, has a fellowship training in Obesity Medicine and is also board certified in Internal Medicine and Sleep Medicine.
