On this special bonus episode of FGH the hackers are sitting down with Nurse Practitioner Susanne Johnson MSN, FNP-BC, APN and discussing an especially heinous doctors appointment recently endured. Jaime delves into a recent appointment where the doctor could not get past weight to help with the problem at hand. Susanne helps unpack this problematic doctor visit and tells us what would’ve been a better bedside approach, what questions we can and should feel empowered to ask as well as other insightful tips to help navigate a sometimes fatphobic medical industry.  Meghan takes on a strange, distant, Ed McMahon role. Yeah, that’s her off in the distance.
