So many reviews here not by patients -- I WAS A PATIENT FOR SIX YEARS!!! lol Only stopped seeing Dr. G because I moved away, but LOVED seeing him. Lab work was amazingly thorough, and he spent AN HOUR on EVERY VISIT going over the results to customize the care TO ME. I got down to my ideal weight without strenuous dieting, all blood and nutrient numbers right on the nose, huge improvements to mental and physical health. He listens to his patients -- you should too! HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION

I think Gundry is a quack. Why would a "renown doctor" be selling all this health care "crap" and harassing people on the phone to buy more if he was a well-known pediatrian? I know people who've stopped eating meat and are miserable without it because they think he is a Guru!

I believe Dr Gundry is a very intelligent man & find all his work very intresting and educational on health. I have been following his Lectin Free diet from his book “The Plant Paradox”). I also purchased his products ( Vital Reds & Lectin Shield.) I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease & Fibromyalgia. Since following this way of eating & supplementing with these products I have lost 5lbs and my joints hardly hurt anymore. Thank you Dr Gundry!

I just want to ask Dr Gundry if his dad or grandfather was a Dr. also and worked in Bakersfield, Ca. ?? My family Dr. Was Dr. Gundry. He took me as a patient when I was a baby because I was born with three hernias. This such a wonderful doctor and I was just wondering if you were related to him. Thank you

I will not recommend anyone to you or your firm. I have just experienced a horrible experience with your offspring of health products and will not have any positive comments about any of you!

I began to see Dr. Gundry after reading his book. The level of knowledge he has is astonishing but he has a way of explaining things in terms us non-Genius folk can comprehend without talking down to you. Since I started seeing hm I referred my father who at 88 years old drives two hours from Newport Beach to see him and it's been well worth it. They have good doctors in Newport Beach but they don't have Dr. G.

I watched one of your nutritional videos and may purchase your diet books and supplements to try myself. I'm a (former long-distance) runner, not overweight but often feel tired and have "gut" issues. Your background interests me as I have a son at Yale and a daughter (undergrads) at Michigan. Considering your amazing educational background and career journey, you didn't "need" to get into nutritional studies, so I truly believe it stemmed from your natural curiosity and personal experience.
