Two Family Medicine Physicians Join Cotton O’Neil North Clinic

Tuesday September 5, 2017

Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce that two new family medicine physicians, Lalitha Rayavarapu, M.D., and Melissa Zepp, M.D., will be joining our medical team at Cotton O’Neil North, 4505 N.W. Fielding Road, in Topeka.  

Dr. Rayavarapu received support and inspiration from her father, a pediatrician, but the real turning point for her was her experience as a patient.

“At a very young age, I had to undergo open heart surgery to correct a heart murmur,” Rayavarapu said. “The medical care, comfort and guidance that I received from the medical team left a lasting impression of what it means to be a health care provider.”

Dr. Rayavarapu received her medical degree at the Pravara Medical Trust Medical College, Loni, Maharashtra, India, in 2003 and completed a family medicine residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, Nebraska, in 2015.

Dr. Zepp took an interest in the medical field from an early age, growing up in a family of medical providers in Meriden, Kansas.

“Both of my parents were nurses, so I’ve been surrounded by the medical field for my entire life,” Dr. Zepp said. “I never even considered being anything other than a doctor.”

Dr. Zepp received her medical degree at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Wichita, Kansas, in 1996. She completed a family medicine residency at Cleveland Clinic Health Systems, Fairview General Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio, in 1999 and an obstetrics fellowship at the same location in 2000. She considers her patients as an extension of her family and enjoys being part of their lives.

Both doctors are accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, call 785-270-4440.
