Dr. Katarzyna (Kathy) Ferraro has practiced medicine in Central Pennsylvania since 2002. She derives personal satisfaction in restoring health and promoting wellness through lifestyle changes and the use of both functional medicine and traditional medicine. In her current practice, she takes time with each patient and works to find the root causes of their medical conditions. Every patient presents a unique set of symptoms and challenges and she enjoys being able to map a plan of action and treatment to get the patient 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 a 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. She developed an interest and passion for integrative medicine and has pursued that fully.

Dr. Kathy now has a private practice in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where she focuses 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 frequency specific microcurrent to treat many acute and chronic medical conditions using non-pharmacologic therapies.
