The Scale-side Manner of Dr. Jon Thomas

In the not-so-distant past, the personal connection between doctors and patients was commonly referred to as “bedside manner.” The interaction didn’t necessarily have to happen by a bed. It could also happen at the doctor’s office, at a hospital, or elsewhere. Patients who felt like their doctor really connected with them at the personal level would say that doctor had a good bedside manner.
Unfortunately, due to their patient loads and due to other demands of their profession, many doctors now have very little time for developing a good bedside manner. Doctors that do have a reputation for their personal touch are increasingly few and far between. Dr. Jon Thomas, the Director of the Vibrant Life Health Center, is one of them.  
Many of the patients on the NutriMost Weight Loss program at Vibrant Life consent to recording testimonials about their experiences with NutriMost and Dr. Thomas.  Over and over, they say that the biggest difference between Vibrant Life and other programs they’ve tried was the personal connection they had with Dr. Thomas.  The opportunity to contact him whenever they had a problem or a question was something they simply haven’t seen elsewhere.
Dr. Thomas summed up his philosophy on his relationships with patients in a recent segment of First Coast Living. “It’s a blessing to be able to help patients who may have tried it all and never had the kind of success at losing weight that they were after,” he said. “I strongly believe in walking them through the weight loss and fat burning process. There’s more to it than handing people a box of prepackaged food and saying, ‘Here you go. Good luck.’ By the time patients finish a cycle of NutriMost, they’ve achieved success they can see both on their scale and in the mirror. They also have a foundation of knowledge to keep the weight off, and they know they always have a place they can go to find some help.”
You can lose pounds on a scale, but is that really helping you in the long run? NutriMost transforms how a person’s metabolism functions. Read these testimonials and check out the videos to see how NutriMost is changing people’s lives for the better.
Lee recently lost 26 pounds.

Lee appeared with Dr. Thomas recently on a segment of First Coast Living.
“I lost a total of 26 pounds. Dr. Thomas and his staff are fully committed to the success of the patients. NutriMost was surprisingly easy to do. They give you an actual menu with recipes. These are whole foods. These are not prepackaged foods. You can go to the grocery store to get your food.  This program teaches you how to be aware of what you’re putting into your body, the chemicals in foods and how they affect the brain and your overall health.
“At the start, I got a full body assessment to target my issues. NutriMost is not a cookie cutter program. It’s individualized based on the body chemistry and specific needs of the patient. Since finishing the program, it has been surprisingly easy to keep the weight off. You learn about trigger foods and foods that disrupt and cause you to get off balance again. Then you have a nutritional weapon that gets you back on track the next day. It has totally transformed the way I think about food, and not only for myself but for my entire family.
“Dr. Thomas proactively takes the journey with you. It’s not like calling the office and getting an appointment in six or seven days. Dr. Thomas is at your disposal twenty-four hours a day. He is fully invested. If you have any type of issue or concern he’s available immediately to address it and get you back on track. If you plateau, he’ll make a suggestion on what to try to get past it. If you’re at a point where you’re feeling hungry, he’ll tell you what to do.”
Bill lost 37 pounds in 40 days and then kept losing weight!
For some people, enough is not enough. 37 pounds in 40 days was great, but it wasn’t enough for Bill. Listen to his testimony on First Coast Living.
“I lost 37 pounds in 40 days and I’ve continued to lose weight. I’ve now lost a total of fifty pounds. If you listen and do what you’re told to do, you learn what you can and cannot eat. Getting on NutriMost was one of the best moves I’ve ever made in my life. I was skeptical because I’ve been on lots of other weight loss programs. Dr. Thomas does a lot of great things for his patients, but the number one thing for me was being able to stay in contact with him.
“I looked forward to each morning when I would start by weighing in and checking my blood pressure. I had high blood pressure and it’s down thirty points since I got on NutriMost. You learn what to eat and what not to eat. For example, I found out that turkey was a problem for me, mostly because of the sodium.  On the other hand, I also found out that there are some goodies, like M&Ms and Snickers bars, that don’t affect me at all.”
Body Composition Analysis
The starting point for NutriMost is getting a Body Composition Analysis (BCA). The BCA shows hormonal deficiencies and other nutritional deficiencies that inhibit a body’s ability to lose weight. With that information, Dr. Thomas will be able to develop the recipe that will turn a patient’s metabolism into a fat-burning machine.
Getting a BCA is completely painless and the cost is a very affordable $27.00. Are you ready to lose twenty pounds or more in 40 days? Call the Vibrant Life Health Center to schedule your appointment.
In this article, I have discussed doctors’ bedside manner and also scale-side manner. I’ve also written about the testimonials of two NutriMost patients who had phenomenal success with the program. NutriMost addresses both permanent weight loss and ongoing weight management.

  1. It's refreshing to know there are still doctors that threat their patients with patience. It's also good to know that there are customized diet plans out there. I'm convinced that this one-size-fits all nonsense is one of the reasons that most diet plans fail.

  2. I have been treated by Dr. Jon Thomas and he really show that he care by the way he interact and treats you. He also calls in the evening to check and see how you're still doing! Ya, he's special.

  3. These interactions with patients via text and in other ways seem to really help. Nice to hear of a doctor who keeps in touch like that.
