Dr. Douglas Matzner

Clinical Director

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.

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.
 

Meet Our Coaches

Misty Richardson

Personal Nutrition Coach

When she was just 30 years old, the unthinkable happened to Misty Richardson.
 
With three young children under the age of 12 at home, Misty suffered a stroke. It was a scary and difficult ordeal, but it’s one that she credits for changing her life in some very positive ways/
 
“It drove me to realize I needed to do better – for myself and for my kids. I chose to be a better role model by understanding what we put in our mouths and how we treat our bodies.”
 
Today Misty is a personal trainer and holistic nutritional coach specializing in the needs of women. 
“Ninety-nine percent of my clients are women. I really want to be a role model for them – to lift women up.”.
 
The Decatur-native carries a number of certifications, including as a Certified Personal Trainer (2013), a Golf Fitness Specialist (015), and a Women's Fitness Specialist (2015), all from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, or NASM. She also carries a Holistic Nutritional Coach Certification through New York’s Institute for Integrated Nutrition and is a Level 1 Coach through CrossFit.
 
Misty is pleased to add her specialties and interests to the JumpStart team. “Everyone here at the Clinic brings such unique qualities and different backgrounds. It really makes this place a wonderful asset to those in the Champaign-Urbana region looking for holistic weight loss and health improvement options.”
 
In her free time, this healthy mother of three (and grandmother to one) enjoys competing in strength training competitions.
