    Thank you! Very inspiring video and story of a couple accomplishing what so many of us need to do,including myself. Not only do they feel better–they look great!

    Congrats to Albert & Adriana! It’s great to see these kinds of success stories, particularly about how people can take charge and improve their health. One of the things I love about Kaiser is the focus on prevention and healthy lifestyle.

    I enjoyed this encouraging story with simple realistic suggestions to weightloss (portion control and exercise–walking with your spouse). I disagree with the direction Kaiser is going. I think that Kaiser is a very efficiently run medical group with caring well qualified staff.

    I am sorry your opinion about Kaiser and Kaiser Physicians is on the negative side. I have been a member since 1998 and have had the same Physician. I especially appreciate how he takes the time to thoroughly explain test results and thoroughly answer any questions I may have.

    I have been a Kaiser member for at least 45 years.
    Neve in that time have I been disappointed in the care I have received at Kaiser.
    In fact I have been grateful for all of it. Thanks to the wonderful Doctors at Kaiser, I have had been cared for through pregnancy, whole body skin rash, intractable Asthma and best of all Two transplanted Corneas that saved my sight (Fuchs Disease). I am a very young and healthy 78 years old. Thank you.

    Way to go Albert and Adriana. I have been a member of Kaiser since 1975 and it has only gotten better. Publishing this example of how Kaiser helps it’s members is a good example. You two worked very hard and my husband and I are cheering you on. We’re on the same journey. Hooray for you!

    I think what this couple has done is a beautiful display of a great partnership at work. They didn’t put each other down, they merely supported each other in a common goal. Kudos to their weigh loss & their health. Thanks kp for sharing this with us!

    I’ve been a Kaiser member since 1956 and from excellent I
    have watched it going down the drain. This
    applies exclusively to
    primary physicians. Of course this commentary will not be posted.

      I have to disagree with you Mechelina. Probably you were not lucky with your chosen Physicians. I think Kaiser has improved a lot. I have been with them since 1986.
      If you follow your Physician’s order and attend their classes pertaining to your health issues and practice what you learned from these classes you will find a remarkable improvement in your health. We cannot rely solely on our Physician alone for health, we have to be proactive. Diet and exercise is the key to a better health.

      Just FYI, your comment was posted. Personally I like my PCP but that’s just one data point for you.
