Doctor Kathy

Dr. Kathy Is currently working as an occupational medicine practitioner; due to this she is only available for limited patient appointments on Thursdays. 

Dr. Katarzyna (Kathy) Ferraro has practiced medicine in Central Pennsylvania since 2002. She is passionate about restoring health and promoting wellness.  She uses holistic medicine,  lifestyle changes and both functional medicine and traditional medicine. In her current practice, Dr. Kathy addresses each individual's unique needs and works to find and treat the root causes of their medical conditions. She enjoys creating individualized treatment plans to get her clients on the road to good health.

Dr. Kathy graduated with Honors from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa and then received her medical degree from the Penn State College of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency at York Hospital in Emergency Medicine and proceeded to practice Emergency Medicine at both Holy Spirit Hospital and Carlisle Regional Medical Center.

While caring for many patients in the ER, she began to see the need to help people avoid and better manage chronic medical conditions. Her personal life also became challenging with the birth of her second child, who was diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder, an autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Kathy developed an interest and passion for integrative medicine as the result of these experiences and has pursued that fully.

Dr. Kathy now runs a medical practice in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.  She manages and delivers personalized care, focusing on functional medicine and the treatment of children on the autism spectrum. She is double board-certified in Emergency Medicine, and by the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. Dr. Kathy is also a licensed medical acupuncturist and uses many tools to care for her patients.

Dr. Kathy is a caring practitioner, who knows the challenges of raising a child with disabilities.  She is a great resource for both personal experience and professional advice.
