What People Are Saying

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.

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

JumpstartMD has changed my life! I have lost over 35 pounds and have changed the way I eat. The people I meet with on a weekly basis have helped me understand my triggers when it comes to food, set personal goals and to stop beating myself up when I don't make the best food choices. This program is ...

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 ...

Off to a great start! Didn't know exactly what to expect at my first follow up, thought I would get a little more support/info out of it, but all of my questions were answered and I was given information flyers to review. Still a little early to tell if I'd give this three or five stars, so four it ...

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...

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...

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...

Fighting an extra 40 lbs for the last few years, I decided to finally take control. Through a family member who had success with the program I decided to take the leap. I am so glad I did. Jumpstart has given me just what I needed. I have learned to make healthy choices when planning menus and h...

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 find the program complete with excellent literature, knowledgable and committed staff, workable and healthy eating plan, and a program that works efficiently.

My experience with the team at JumpstartMD in Greenbrae has been life-changing in the best possible way. My team set me up for success by helping me learn how to shop, cook (with NO time or skill) and stay on track with my goals while simultaneously feeding a picky 8-year-old and a pescatarian partn...

i like the program and both of the offices I've visited have been fine, Piedmont and Pleasanton. My only complaint is I think the website could be much more user-friendly and robust--and daily diary should be available to do onine, instead of paper. For the amount of money that Jumpstart costs, th...
