Doctor Details

Katie N. Finnerty, M.D.
Oculoplastics & Orbital Surgery
Neuro-Ophthalmology
Board Certified in Ophthalmology

Dr. Finnerty is a Southern California native; now a Texan.  Growing up playing volleyball, she was fortunate to have one of her favorite things help pay her way through college.  After completing her Master’s degree in Cellular and Systemic Physiology, she felt she could better serve others as a physician.  

Having had a family dairy in New Mexico, she completed her medical school at UNM along the way discovering Hatch green chilies.  While in medical school, Dr. Finnerty was awarded Alpha Omega Alpha membership, the Faculty Excellence Award, and the Internal Medicine Student of the Year. Residency and Fellowship training at UTSW in Dallas was instructed by brilliant and compassionate physicians, and was considered to be a privilege by Dr. Finnerty.  

Honored to join Ophthalmology Associates in 2014, Fort Worth has now become her home.  Dr. Finnerty specializes in numerous lid disorders, orbital processes, and other periocular diseases.  Her interests include both medical and cosmetic treatments.  Aesthetic rejuvenation by restoring a healthy, more youthful appearance is approached by both surgical and non-surgical treatments such as injectable hyaluronic acid gels, anti-wrinkle agents, and skin treatments.  

For fun, she spends time with her family and friends and spoils her nieces.  Whenever possible, she’s up for a game of volleyball, skiing, baking desserts, and being involved in her local church.  Recently she went on a medical mission trip to Guatemala where they provided medical care through a mobile clinic in various rural areas of the country from the mountainous Mayan villages to the coastal areas.  In the future, Dr. Finnerty hopes to participate on many more international medical mission trips.
