Dr. Vamshi K Garlapaty has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

I sought out Dr. Garlapaty for a second opinion after being so frustrated with my initial Nephrologist. I am so thankful I did! I'm young, healthy and couldn't understand why I was having the problems I was. Not only was he very thorough, he was kind and empathetic and made me feel at ease. He explained things so that I left with no questions unanswered. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I never write reviews but this doctor is an exception because is he is an amazing doctor. I was seeing a different doctor before I saw Dr. Garlapaty and was very unhappy with her service. With Dr. Garlapaty i couldn't be happier. He took the time to listen to me and was very patient and kind. This one really cares about his patients and their well being.
