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.

I am very impressed with JumpstartMD. Maureen and Christy explained everything very well and were supportive. The program guide was easy to understand.

This is my third week and I'm finally feeling a little less tired, cranky and hungry. I only lost .6 lb, and , although I know in my head that I lost almost 8 lbs the first week, and that's a good loss for 2 weeks, I still feel a little disappointed. However, I'm in it for the long haul and I'll c...

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 .

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...

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!

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-...

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS OFFICE! I just came back and it is as professional and friendly as it was when I first started in 2015.

I am enjoying the program so far. I have seen results and have found the program relatively easy to follow. Friendly staff!
, Jul 11, 2016
The staff is great but the web site is -not-. Try searching for inspiration via a recipe and you can see that the site is not designed as so many other recipe web sites are. Not visual, not able to filter down via ingredients, just scrolling and scrolling and opening each recipe to see if it is appe...

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

Great program! The question:can I make the weight loss stick?/
, Oct 11, 2016
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 ...

Wonderfully effective program. Very supportive staff.
, Sep 24, 2016
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 ...

Program is great. Administrative issues and website need some help.

It's working! It's working without diet aids. I have tried every program available in past 35 years. Shopping list is provided. I finally can manage accountability, situations and be prepared. I do not have cravings or any desire to cheat. I put off trying Jump Start for over a year because I did n...

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...
