MEET Dr. Johnson, DNP, APRN, FNP-C
I started PCOS Sisters after years of struggling and finally conquering my own polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) symptoms. At age 25, I suddenly developed severe acne, mood swings, and unwanted hair on my chin out of nowhere! I was misdiagnosed multiple times because I was not overweight or infertile at that time (that came later) so I didn't "fit" a classic stereotype. Thousands of dollars, multiple endocrinologists, gynecologists, gurus, and naturopaths later, I was diagnosed and received treatment. After becoming a family nurse practitioner and receiving my doctorate of nursing practice, I successfully treated many PCOS patients that had the same story like myself.
Shortly after, the PCOS Sisters' treatment plan was developed using the latest peer-reviewed research and integrated into my own evidence-based practice. The PCOS Sisters' treatment plan is achieved through metabolic optimization, medical management of symptoms, and empowerment of PCOS women through telehealth services.
No longer should lack of insurance or long distance be a barrier to care that often involves multiple specialists, high deductibles, and co-pays. Because PCOS is a syndrome involving the entire body, I also serve as a primary care provider to women with PCOS.
