Katie has long held an interest in psychology and medicine. Prior to entering physician assistant school, she worked in Mental Health for four years. During that time she was also a Wilderness First Responder and CPR/First Aid Instructor. She became a medical provider in order to interact meaningfully with people and care for the needs of the entire patient. She chose a career in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation because it enables her to partner with patients to prevent injury, control pain, enhance function, and support improved quality of life. From a medical perspective, she finds this field fascinating because it encompasses a breadth of medical disorders and injuries in any organ system. Katie enjoys collaborating with her patients and other medical professionals toward a common goal, and cultivating relationships based on mutual respect and trust. An Oregon native, Katie and her husband moved to Bend after pursuing higher education and enjoy outdoor activities, music and art, eclectic food, and our healthy vibrant community.

“I had the opportunity to have Katie Cypcar, PA-C for my recent appointment. I would like to report that Ms. Cypcar was the most thorough, kind, gentle and caring medical practitioner I have ever had. I could sense her genuine spirit the moment she came into the exam room. It is very unusual nowadays that someone experiences this from the medical field. Please let her know that she is one in a million!” 

“Katie is a very thorough PA. She always takes the time to do all the necessary exams to evaluate my current needs. She is truly concerned about my well being.”

“Katrina Cypcar is always upbeat and professional. I don’t think I would want any other doctor. I feel she’s a good match for me. She’s always concerned with my problems and takes awesome care of me. I have referred several people to The Center.”
