    RBF was saddened to hear of the full retirement several months ago of the well-loved and respected, Dr. John Sinnott in Iowa, who served rheumatic patients choosing AP for decades. Dr. Sinnott, however, did make sure to train a new medical provider in Dr. Brown’s antibiotic protocols and she is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C) with a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). The following are the notes we have added to her contact info and, if anyone is searching for a replacement for Dr. Sinnott or an AP Provider who treats just like this experienced (now retired) AP Doctor, then this APRN may relieve some concern about the loss of Dr. Sinnott and who can help take his place.

    “I am now prescribing the AP treatment that I learned from Dr. Sinnott, and am doing the protocol that Dr. Brown introduced. I have helped quite a few patients already, and would like to be on your list of RBF providers, and I would be happy to help others, in or out of the state of Iowa. If a patient needs IV treatment, I have been continuing to use the Horn Memorial Hospital in Ida Grove, Iowa for this. I have also ordered the treatments Outpatient in other states for some that couldn’t travel to see me, if they have been seen by Dr. Sinnott previously. I see patients by appointment, in my office, or by Skype appointment if needed. I work Monday-Friday. Dr. Sinnott is no longer seeing patients at all, as you probably know, so I decided to help people as much as I can now. I have 21 years’ experience in Family Practice, and an additional 10 years’ experience in Integrative Medicine and Wellness. I don’t bill insurance for my services, so charge a flat fee, but their insurance should cover anything I order at the hospital, pharmacies, labs, etc. Should they decide to come to Ida Grove for the IV treatment, I order the same labs he did, at the hospital there. There are hotels in that town, that they can search for. I am available by phone (cell XXX), or by email: XXXX, should they have questions.” Be sure to call ahead to confirm if this AP Provider will see pediatric cases.

    Good news!!!

    I saw that APRN’s can practice without a supervising doctor is 23 states including Iowa. That is very good news.


    Great news! It’s always hard when we lose experience doctors.


    I am trying to find out the contact info for the NP who is seeing Dr. Sinnott’s patients. I am a former patient of his and I have been restricted from getting this information for some strange reason. I have a recurrence of symptoms after several years of remission and have already spent months being told by doctors it’s not autoimmune only to now be told it is. I’d like to get started. I’m near tears here because it seems like I’m being teased by mentions of this person but no ability to find out who she is so I can reach out to her for help.


    Hi D24k58,

    I’m happy to send you the contact info for the NP who took over from Dr. Sinnott in a private message. You should get an automated notification in your email to tell you when it’s in your forum inbox.


    May I have this NP contact information please. Thank you all for running such a wonderful and helpful site!


    Hi Conqueringthis,

    I will send you a PM (instructions to find PMs at top of forum) with both the “most experienced” doc list and the practitioner who took over from Dr. S.

    Hope you find one is near you to help!


    Hello, my mom was a patient of Dr. Sinnot and is looking for a replacement doctor/np to continue her treatment. Would you pls send me the contact info for the APRN mentioned in this post?


    Hi Leanne,

    Have sent you a PM with this info! Best to your Mom! 😀
