JumpstartMD is the largest and leading medical weight management practice in the Bay Area. We focus on weight loss and weight maintenance and refer back to primary or sub-specialist care for all other medical issues.
We work with a wide-range of referring physicians, including primary care, OB/GYN, cardiology, gastroenterology, psychiatrics, endocrinology, orthopedics, and reproductive endocrinology.
Our program is founded upon fresh, whole food meal strategies. We use a low carbohydrate diabetic exchange diet with weekly visits to foster behavioral change. Appointments are all one-on-one with our highly trained and caring team of expert clinicians and health coaches.
Through the course of the weight loss journey, we track outcomes through serial biometric monitoring including labs and share progress with referring providers at key milestones.
Our members typically want to lose anywhere from 10 pounds to 110 pounds. On average, after six-months, patients achieve:
- 14% body weight loss
- 5 point reduction in BMI
- 5.2 inch reduction in waist circumference
- 8 point reduction in systolic blood pressure
- 4.5 point reduction in diastolic blood pressure
We have a clinician on-site at every center and work with patients with high-risk co-morbidities like metabolic syndrome, diabetes, pre-diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, sleep apnea, fatty liver disease, back and joint pain, depression and more.
Our patients pay out of pocket, and fees can often be partially reimbursed to patients with PPO insurance, Flexible Spending Accounts, and Health Savings Accounts. We provide a concierge billing service to handle the submission and processing of PPO insurance claims.
We look forward to working collaboratively with you to help your patients achieve better overall health.
