Meet Our Physical Therapist
Susan K. Hatten, DPT
Suzy’s interest in physical therapy began at an early age when she was a PT patient recovering from injuries related to ballet and soccer.
Suzy received her Bachelor's of Science from Mississippi State University in 2003. She worked throughout college as a Physical Therapy Technician and taught anatomy and physiology labs for the university. Suzy went on to Belmont University in Nashville receiving a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006.
Clinical rotations completed during her doctoral program included Vanderbilt Home Health; Easter Seals Pediatrics; Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas;
Jacobi Medical Center in Bronx, New York; and The Children’s Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham.
For eight years Suzy was employed by Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance, which allowed her to work alongside highly successful orthopaedic surgeons.
She also spent time with Gentiva Home Health where she had specialized training in geriatrics, dementia, and vestibular disorders. The majority of Suzy’s post-doctoral continuing education has been in manual therapy through the University of St. Augustine.
Suzy is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and Tennessee Physical Therapy Association.
She enjoys spending time with her family, playing guitar, Texas Hold ’em, tennis, and sailing.
