Specialties

Dr. Pratap R Tummala has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great Doctor

Dr. Tummala has been putting injections in my back for years. They help. I can't be on medicine except for Tylenol Arthritis due to a previous pulmonary embolism. I am so glad he gives them to me. He has a great bedside manner and is very intelligent.

Excellent Physician

I have seen Dr. Tummala for years. He has injected me for bursitis. He also has injected in me my back with steroid shots. He has to do that about 3 times a year. His bedside manner is great and he is very intelligent.
