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!

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

So far so good. with only 2 weeks in I have had great support and exceptional communication with Nora, from the Greenbrae office. The program is pretty easy to follow and incorporate into my every day life, which is key to my success. Hands down five star rating!!

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...

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...

This is the most effective weigh loss plan and the staff is wonderful and supportive..

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

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 ...

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

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...

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 ...

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 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.

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...

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

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...

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

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 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...

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...

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...
