Dr. Douglas Matzner
At four years old, I knew I was going to grow up to be a doctor.
I was heavily influenced by my father, who insisted on proper nutrition as well as living life filled with passion, intention, and a commitment to knowledge. As acupuncture’s impact grew in the U.S. in the 1970’s, I really felt pulled towards a medical profession that would help people and communities lose weight, achieve better health, and reduce health care costs.
I opened Matzner Clinic in the early 1980’s and today I am a licensed chiropractic physician and patient’s rights advocate who is passionate about helping my patients with weight loss, maintenance, and stabilization. I’m also dedicated to driving overall community health and wellness and reducing health care costs for individuals and businesses.
At Matzner Clinic, I focus on safe, effective, and sustainable weight loss. I am a firm believer in finding and addressing the root sources of problems rather than just treating symptoms. Using the science-backed and FDA-labeled Ideal Protein protocol, my team helps those seeking to lose weight, get in shape, and live healthier find their path to balanced eating, exercise, and more holistic body health.
Since incorporating the Ideal Protein protocol into my work nearly a decade ago, I have helped nearly 2,000 Champaign-Urbana residents lose hundreds of thousands of pounds.
I’m proud to have been dedicated to improving the quality of life for every person who not only walks through the front door of my clinic, but for everyone across the Champaign County community, for over 35 years.

Beth Colla, RN
Personal Nutrition Coach
Hi, I’m Beth. And I’ve been where you are.
I was introduced to Matzner Clinic’s JumpStart Weight Loss program as a patient myself. After unsuccessful tries with other programs, I came through the doors at Matzner.
In my first 2 months, I lost 27 pounds. I not only felt much better, my health markedly improved with my good cholesterol climbing and my bad cholesterol dropping significantly. I was improving so much that my physician even asked me about the program I was on.
I know all about the challenges of weight loss and lifestyle changes. I also know firsthand that that the JumpStart program really works – quickly and reliably.
Today I am proud to not only be one of Matzner’s JumpStart success stories, but now a JumpStart team member as an Personal Nutrition Coach. I’m honored to be a part of a scientifically-based program that really works and one that is focused on keeping weight lost off forever.
To my work with the JumpStart team, I bring background as a Registered Nurse, a Critical Care Registered Nurse, and a certification in Dermatology Nursing. I also have a degree in Culinary Sciences and I love cooking. I have a real passion for patient care, and more importantly, patient education. I bring that same passion to my work with you at JumpStart!
I know my wellness journey isn’t over yet, but I do know I can see the end. And it feels good. I wish the same for you!
Personal Nutrition Coach
If you asked me five years ago whether I could ever dream of doing a 5K or climbing a mountain, I would have laughed.
But this last February, I completed a Couch-To-5K program. I did it after losing 40 pounds on JumpStart’s Ideal Protein program. Thanks to this new me, I’ve shed expensive blood pressure medication and am loving the healthier, more active version of myself I’ve become.
In fact, this past Spring I tackled steep and strenuous hike to the summit of a volcanic mountain in Hawaii. The 560-foot ascent and the trail’s daunting 99 stairs would have been impossible before JumpStart. But today, I know that I can head out with husband on an energy-filled hike and keep up with my kids on a kayaking trip. I’m energized!
Today I’ve returned to Matzner Clinic as a Personal Nutrition Coach. Now I’m here to help you achieve similar results!
As a coach, I’m combining my previous healthcare experience as a medical assistant and my work teaching group fitness classes to create a passion for helping you create a new well-being. I’ve seen – and know first-hand – how extra weight can impact you. I also know how transformative weight loss can be on reshaping lives.
Let's work together to help you reach your personal weight loss goals!
