Institute of Bariatric Medicine[TM] and Marchelle's Paris[TM] Medical Spa: stop dieting, lose weight safely with medical supervision and keep it off for life.

According to the National Institutes of Health, 50 percent--exactly half--of all Americans are considered overweight or have been diagnosed with morbid or clinically severe obesity. Obesity is the second-leading cause of preventable death, and the health risks associated with obesity will soon surpass smoking as the leading overall killer of Americans. The good news is that there is a safe and effective solution that can help people achieve and maintain a more normal weight. It can be found in bariatrics, the branch of medicine dealing with the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.


The Institute of Bariatric Medicine (IBM)[TM], founded in Ocala in 2004 by Dr. Michael M. Holloway and his wife, Marsha, is now open in Sarasota. The difference between IBM and other programs is that clients on the IBM program have lost weight and are keeping it off though lifestyle changes. Dr. Holloway, a licensed physician, has been specifically trained to detect and treat conditions associated with obesity that might go undetected in a non-medical weight-loss program. By performing simple tests like the MedGem[R] and comprehensive blood work, a client's specific and individual needs will be met. Along with weight loss, IBM has its own luxurious Marchelle's Paris Medical Spa, which pampers patients in a warm, relaxing environment with a multitude of services.

Dr. Holloway has brought in Ms. Suzanne Collins, an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) with extensive experience in both bariatric medicine and plastic surgery, making her a perfect match for IBM[TM] and Marchelle's.

Go ahead--pamper yourself, rediscover, reveal and restore. Experience the unmatched weight loss and cosmetic procedures in a beautiful and relaxing spa setting, rather than in a sterile medical clinic.
