FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dr. Murali Krishna of Chipola Surgical & Medical Specialties earns Obesity Specialist credential.
Marianna, FL, February 4, 2014. Dr. Murali Krishna of Chipola Surgical & Medical Specialties (CSMS), Marianna, FL is one of only twenty American Board of Obesity Medicine certified specialists in the state of Florida. Krishna completed the exam conducted by the American Board of Obesity in December 2013.

The medical weight loss program started by Dr. Krishna at Chipola MedSpa/CSMS has helped hundreds of patients overcome obesity. To date Chipola MedSpa patients have lost over 4,000 pounds of excess weight. This certification will enable Dr. Krishna and staff to further expand the already successful weight loss program at Chipola MedSpa.

According to the most recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 68.8% of Americans are overweight and 35.7% of Americans are obese. Obesity rates are projected to double over the next 30 years. The American Medical Association has officially recognized obesity as a disease in 2013.

Dr. Krishna says, “Even a modest five to ten percent weight loss will significantly improve obesity associated medical problems like diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and hypertension. Here at Chipola MedSpa we are committed to providing outstanding patient care and excellent patient education to help each and every patient reach and maintain healthy weight.”

Dr. Krishna sees patients at Chipola MedSpa, located at 2946 Jefferson Street, Marianna, FL, and is accepting new patients for his medical weight loss program. Please call (850)526-3314 for further information and appointments.
