"Katherine and her staff are the best. Always responsive and friendly. Katherine really listens to your concerns and treats the individual and not an "out of the box" treatment that is the same for everyone. She is always on time. Takes the time to have the conversation WITH you and doesn't talk AT you. I was referred to her by friends, and I continue to recommend her to others."- A.B. / Google / Nov 29, 2021
"I had my first consultation and procedure with Katherine and staff. The staff were professional from the time I was greeted at the door from the time I left Katherine’s office . I admire the professional, kindness and knowledge that was delivered to me from Katherine and staff.. I highly recommend this entity. I will definitely refer to this entity for future procedures and treatments. Thank you Katherine and staff .."- E.M. / Google / Aug 18, 2021

"I love love Dr Johnson. She is amazing and makes you feel at ease. I want to make that clear! The reason that I did not give a 5 star is because of a certain staff member. When I was trying to explain my reasoning of not being able to come do a follow up....was told on the phone prior to first visit that they did take carecredit and gave a totally different copay amount, she got defensive saying how it's only 3 people blah blah blah and they don't take it. Ok. I get that. But if you let me talk and finish instead of getting defensive and interrupting. Yes, maybe the person misunderstood?? Idk, but it happened. You can say it never did but it won't change the fact that yes it did. I even showed them the number at the time of visit, which was theirs that I called hrs prior to confirm copay price when the receptionist tried to say I called a different office. I didn't make it up. But don't get ugly cause you think no one could have made a mistake on your end. Maybe she thought I said something else. Idk. Either way, I'm not mad about it. I wasn't even getting nasty on the phone. I just was telling what happened. Nothing more. So don't try to talk over me on the phone cause you don't agree and want to basically say I'm lying. I just chose this place because I heard great things about Dr Johnson, which is all true and thinking they did take it which unfortunately for me, they dont. But even the copay amount that I was told originally, ended up being twice as much as well."- A.S. / Google / Aug 05, 2021
"I found Katherine Johnson when I posted in a FB group for Moms because I knew I needed Help but had NO idea where to start. As women age we experience so many changes and Katherine is the Nancy Drew of getting to the root cause! She’s so passionate about helping others and it shows! I’m so grateful for her and her team! And I’m all about supporting local business! Thanks for everything!"- N.H. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
How Do Weight Loss 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.
