About Cheryl A. Johnston, PA-C

  • Cheryl enjoys the Austin live music scene. She plays couple’s bridge, and has enticed her son to learn. She says she challenges herself to improve her rhythm through modern dance, and immensely treasures the time spent with family and friends.

Listening to the patient is the key to my formulation of an accurate medical diagnosis. I have over three decades of experience with Austin Regional Clinic, with a focus in gynecology and obstetrics, and I continue to be personally touched by my patients’ trust in my practice of quality care. I daily enjoy my career as a Physician Assistant, which entails lifelong learning and connection with other members of the health care team. My foundation is in family practice, and I am a strong advocate for preventive health. I strive to share my medical knowledge with the patient so together we aim for optimal health.
