Kishore Vipperla, M.D., practices gastroenterology and has been in health care since 2002. Dr. Vipperla believes in treating you as one of his own family members. “Helping you understand the nature of your disease, the pros and cons of available treatment options and encouraging you to be proactive at every step of managing the disease are the keys to the best clinical outcome and greatest mutual satisfaction,” he said.
Dr. Vipperla is passionate about his work and confident in what he does. “Gastroenterology is an intellectually stimulating and rewarding field that requires the multifaceted skillset of an astute internist, an observant radiologist and a surgeon's dexterity,” he said.
Dr. Vipperla manages a wide range of general gastroenterological disorders for his patients. He specializes in advanced therapeutic endoscopy with a focus on diagnostic and interventional endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) for treating complex hepatic and pancreatobiliary diseases, Barrett's esophagus, removing large colon polyps and dilating and stenting esophageal and intestinal strictures.
Dr. Vipperla received a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery degree from Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad, India, in 2002. He completed an internship and residency at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 2009. Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic, Dr. Vipperla completed a gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
When he is away from the office, Dr. Vipperla enjoys cooking, traveling and listening to music. He is fluent in Hindi (India’s national language) and Telugu (a south Indian language).

Dr.Vipperla is as fine a physician as you can find!!! He treated my 90 year old mother for one solid week in the hospital and brought back her health. He treats patients like family and works tirelessly to determine the causes of their illness and pain. He follows up with his patients family everyday and calls you back when you message him. I cannot praise this fine doctor enough! He is the best and I'm lucky he took care of my Mom!
