What People Are Saying

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

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...

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 .

Jumpstart MD has a step above other programs because it is a medical based program with medical associates. They do comprehensive lab work with state of the art equipment to help track your progress. The initial consultation is very motivating! The medical assistance are great! They are always...

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...

Great to be back. Love the team and the encouragement they provide. I travel a lot for work so this will be a slow process and they give great advice each week.

It has been great. The staff is wonderful very personable and caring. The program is working for me and I'am reaping the rewards. Best thing I did for myself. For sure a 5 star from me.

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...

Jump Start has changed my life. With the help of the caring, knowledgable and supportive staff I lost over 45 lbs and have kept it off for two years. A special shoutout to the Marin Jump Start staff, especially Alfredo and Nora.

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 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

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...

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 have only been on jumpstart program since last week but I'm pleased with my first weeks results. I have mobility issues due to MS and was having great difficulty in losing more weight and find that this is a healthy program to follow thus far. The staff is very friendly and very thorough. What I w...

I truly enjoy talking to Lisa. She's a great balance of doing it right and well and making it fun. The lovely gentlemen who works the front desk is VERY good. Sincere, big heart and just perfect for customer service. And he's efficient. Acknowledges people straight away. Seems to remember us. He's j...

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...

diet works Not sure if the shots are placebo or real like the little pills like the little boxes in the little book.

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...

Excellent program, albeit pricey. Works well for me since it requires a disciplined approach with weekly visits to Jumpstart for a check-up.
, Sep 26, 2016
First appointment was great, learned quite a bit about body mass, water and what not to eat. My follow up appointment was also on time and informative.

Great program! The question:can I make the weight loss stick?/

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...

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...

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

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...
