They say the first-born child tends to be reliable, caring and are achievers (The good stuff, at least!).  That is all certainly true of 3DPT’s newest physical therapist, Dr. Katie O’Rourke, who is the oldest of 5 siblings! She’s also a competitive tennis player, so Katie is used to hard work and being a great team player.  Katie loves that physical therapy gives her the opportunity to care for patients and help them work hard to achieve the PT goals!
