"I cannot recommend this office and this team more. Katherine and her team are just phenomenal. I was very impressed with the personal attention, professionalism, and level of care that she took to fully understand my needs, describe the procedure needed nd educate me on options, and all the while keep me completely comfortable throughout. I will certainly be coming back and would unequivocally recommend her practice to anyone."- A.U. / Google / May 12, 2023
"Cat Stanworth is amazing! I’ve been seeing her for years and she is always pleasant, personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel comfortable each visit. I needed to add on after meeting Katherine and Lacy as well. So nice, helpful, felt very comfortable and cared for! Overall great place!"- A.H. / Google / Nov 26, 2022
"Seriously would not go anywhere else. Katherine Johnson actually pays attention to symptoms, patient records, and listens to her patients. SHE was the one who asked me if I’d been getting routine scans and sent me for one - the one in which we discovered my thyroid cancer had returned. Not my specialist. SHE was the one who was able to balance my medications post surgery and proved my Endocrinologist wrong, more than once. I have energy again, I can focus, and I actually lost weight instead of gained after having a complete thyroid removal. She is the best of the best!"- T.A. / Google / Nov 03, 2022
"I love seeing Mylisa and the staff. They are always so happy and are eager to greet you."- C.P. / Google / Oct 25, 2022
"I’ve been seeing Katherine for a while and greatly appreciate her level of care of listening. She has never shamed me, or talked down to me. I’ve recently expanded my care with her by getting Botox and fillers with her. I definitely made the right choice by choosing her - so happy with my results! I’ve also seen Cat at her office for PicoSure laser. Best choice ever! I have the complexion I thought I could only dream about! Highly recommend Johnson Family Medical!!"- K.W. / Google / Oct 21, 2022
How Do Peptide Therapy Injections Work?
Depending on personal weight loss needs and goals, we may recommend the following lipotropic injection treatments for Frisco, TX patients:
- Skinny Shot injections combine methionine, inositol, and choline (giving them the name "MIC injections") and Vitamin B12 to help kickstart your metabolism and enhance the weight loss process. This option also helps boost your energy, detoxify your liver, keep cortisol levels low, and burn fat.
- Lean Machine injections include sermorelin, a bio-identical hormone that helps safely stimulate the natural production of growth hormone within the body. This can help to enhance energy and sleep quality, increase lean body mass, and offer an overall rejuvenating effect on your body.
These weight loss shots work in tandem with a healthy diet plan and regular exercise to help you reach your goals. We may recommend routine visits with our team to track your progress and monitor your weight loss efforts.
