Katarina Karnas, PT, DPT
Clinic Director / Physical Therapist
“Establishing relationships with patients is something I find to be an important key to successful treatment. I enjoy getting to know all of my patients on an individual basis to fully understand their needs and goals. I tend to focus on a hands-on approach and use my clinical skill set to provide evidence-based services with the intent to help patients achieve their goals and to foster independence. I want to see all of my patients return to doing all of the activities they love to do!”
Katie joined the PHOENIX team in 2018 as facility director and lead physical therapist for PHOENIX’s outpatient physical therapy facility in Harrisburg. Here, she is an integral part of the overall development and growth of the facility.
Katie’s clinical expertise focuses on generalized outpatient orthopedics including post-surgical conditions, and sports and work-related injuries. She is currently in Fellowship for Manual Therapy as well as formally involved in creating and performing injury prevention screenings for student-athletes.
Being a very social person, Katie enjoys spending time with family and friends outside of the office; especially partaking in activities such as hiking, skiing, and aerial yoga. She also likes photography and adores the sun setting, wherever she may be.
