About Phanibindu Uppala, MD, DABOM

Dr. Uppala is board-certified in internal medicine with 10 years of experience. She also recently became board-certified in obesity medicine by the American Board of Obesity Medicine.  Dr. Uppala relocated from Michigan to Texas to be close to family. She sees both adult and geriatric patients and has a particular interest in obesity medicine and diabetes. Her other professional interests include focusing on health through preventive medicine for all adults, mental health and women's health.

For new patients seeking care with obesity management, please note that your first appointment with Dr. Uppala will be to establish care and discuss your primary care needs. After care is established, a second appointment will be scheduled to focus on your concerns about weight management. Thank you for your understanding.

Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

She is one of the friendliest doctors I've encountered. But, after getting my blood results I was expecting a call back. I mentioned, experiences with my past provider. I also mentioned I have eczema and need something for that and still I don't know what to do. She mentioned depending on blood work. I'll go to YouTube and look for remedies to prevent the itch on my skin.
