I'm so glad I joined the program at JumpstartMD Los Gatos. As a result of their guidance not only am I down by more than 40 pounds I've also cut my diabetes medication in half and am on track to be off meds within the next year.

This program has been really, really good for my husband and I. I've adapted to eating smaller meals more frequently and am finding that I have a hard time finishing all of my food if the portions are to big. This has been reflected on the scale which is the best part. Right now I'm looking forwa...

My early experience with the staff at the Los Gatos location has been excellent. They are eager to see me succeed! Just been signed up for coming up on the end of 2 weeks. So far, so good. Didn't have any dramatic changes like I had hoped, but will continue to plug away at it!

The therapists and administrative assistants are always friendly and helpful. I especially enjoy working with Liz. She's real- very down-to-earth, understands my struggles, doesn't patronize me, and gives me good advice. The program itself is very doable and easy to follow. If you're a numbers per...

Dr. Bourke is amazing! He has transformed my life. I have been a client of jumpstartmd since 2012 when I lost my first 45 pounds through the program. Despite my loss of weight, my energy levels stayed very low and after many tests, I found out my thyroid levels were off. An endocrinologist wouldn't...

At start of my second week. The program so far appears professional, soumd, and producing early results. I continue to 'digest' the food rules and recommendatios for optimal weight loss. A lot to learn And adjust living to, all at once while cooking for others with different needs. So sorry that t...

I have only been a member a short time but I have found the staff at Presidio Heights Jumpstart facility to be very professional,courteous, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I look forward to a bright future with the help of these people .

I joined Jumpstart about 5 to 6 weeks ago at the suggestion of my doctor. I am totally committed to the program and have had reasonably good results. The staff has always been very nice and easy to work with. However, one of the stipulations for me when I signed up was the flexibility and support d...

The program works if you stick to it. In my view the outline is too generalized for all bodies rather than customized for the individual.
, Sep 8, 2016
I love this office! Why because it's right down the street from my work. They are always so friendly. They are very helpful and I never feel rushed.
, Jan 6, 2017
I feel very supported and have learned good information about the emotional and mental aspects of healthy eating. I am learning good practices --and yes, new behavior takes practice. The change in behavior leads to a change in the way I think about my health--I am happy to be stepping out in chan...

Great people, very efficient, very supportive and knowledgable!

Overall my experience has been positive and if I measure my progress by my weight loss alone I've been doing extremely well. I've lost 28 pounds which includes the additional 4 pounds I've loss since my last visit. However, there are a few issues I'd to raise. First, the optimal times for my foll...

Walking was difficult because my knee hurts. I wanted to lose weight to take the pressure off my knee. My doctor recommended JumpstartMD. I lost seven pounds the first ten days on this low carb program. I feel full all the time because I eat three small meals and two snacks each day. This progr...

The staff at JumpstartMD help me stay motivated. They are very encouraging and offer real life solutions to improve my dietary habits. For example, my lifestyle is such that I eat out and travel extensively. They helped me continue to loose ~ one pound a week while traveling out of the country wit...

Where were you when I needed you years ago. I love this program and it is working for me. Love your councelors too! I would highly recommend you. Jenny Craig keeps calling me back to get on track again but little do they know the train has left the station. You do need to advertise more. I had not ...

LOVE everyone at the Greenbrae JUMPSTART.... Friendly, thorough and genuinely concerned about the program and my progress! BUT I cannot say the same about the website (sorry!!!)
, Aug 31, 2016
One week in and I am very, very impressed. My doctor recommended I join. He is already a member. He was referred by a doctor he is treating (as a patient) and has lost 30+ pounds already. That was enough to send me right to your door. Staff was amazing during intake session and at end of the f...

I really enjoy the staff at JumpStartMD in Walnut Creek, but it needs to be said that Linda is AWESOME!!

It would be very helpful if your on line scheduling communicated with Outlook so when we scheduled an appointment we could put it on our calendar automatically

I was very impressed with the staff I met on my first visit, everyone was very welcoming!
, Jun 17, 2017
I have been on the program for about a month now and so far I have lost about 18.5 lbs....which I never would have been able to do on my own. I like that making healthier choices for myself is also becoming more of a habit rather than a chore at the beginning. Every time I go in for my weekly check-...
