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

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.

Nothing but a positive experience at Jumpstart MD Los Gatos. Very friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging staff. I've lost 30 pounds of fat in just over two months. Definitely gets you into a lifestyle mindset rather than diet .

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...

I thought being on medication I would lose weight faster. But, I'm not hungry and I'm eating things I've never eaten. And lots of foods too. So hopefully I'll keep losing weight I don't have any friends interested in weight loss at this time

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...

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.
