Susan B. Fix, PT, MPT

Physical Therapist

“I am driven by a passion to assist patients in achieving their maximum rehab potential.  I am their guide and teacher on their road to recovery, striving to help them realize the potential they have within themselves to overcome any physical difficulty they face.

I consider myself successful if I can educate my patients and teach them how they can control their destiny during therapy through an understanding of body mechanics, exercise and perseverance.”

Welcome to State College

Rehabilitation care should always be efficient, purposeful and cost-effective. Or at least that’s what we believe here at PHOENIX.

When you choose PHOENIX, you’re choosing to take control of your health and wellness. Our main priority is to make sure you feel like you again. To do so, we ensure your care takes place in a professional environment with highly trained staff. We begin by developing personalized care and treatment plan together, supported by patient education and participation.

Start your journey to feeling like you again by taking advantage of our Trooper location’s Physical Therapy and Occupational Health Rehabilitation Services.

Located in the Mount Nittany Health at Blue Course complex, our office overlooks the PSU Golf Courses. We are off of College Avenue on the corner of Blue Course Drive and Old Gatesburg Road; only 2.7 miles from PSU campus, on the Centre Area Transit Authority (CATA) bus route K.
