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!!

I find the program complete with excellent literature, knowledgable and committed staff, workable and healthy eating plan, and a program that works efficiently. I had a hard time adjusting the first week. The second week things went smoothly and I lost weight. I was very fearful of not losing weig...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 .

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...

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 am thrilled with JumpstartMD! When I began in November, I weighed 147, had high blood pressure, and was pre-diabetic. The easy-to-follow supportive program helped me drop to 128.... my blood pressure is now perfect, and I am no longer pre-diabetic! I have more energy and feel healthier than I h...

Excellent program, albeit pricey. Works well for me since it requires a disciplined approach with weekly visits to Jumpstart for a check-up.
