I love Pro PT! They have been so supportive during my ACL and meniscus recovery. All the staff have been super friendly and I know they genuinely care about me and my recovery.

I can't rave enough about the staff at Professional Therapy in Andover, Ma. In the past I have needed PT and I never cared for the results I got from another company. This is why I searched for a new PT location for my next rehab. I was so lucky to have chosen Professional Physical Therapy in... Andover. The staff which is headed by Kate and assisted by Rob is something I've never had the pleasure to enjoy in rehab before. I just recently met the newest member Alicia on my last rehab appointment and for sure Alicia fits in very well with the "vibe" of this location. I believe the tone is set by the Director Kate and I see first hand how the staff interacts with all of the clients no matter the age or rehab needed. It is a highlight of my day when I have an appointment there. I've had great results with my rehab for my injuries and follow up to my surgery.Kate explains what she will be doing and between the rest of the staff set goals/results for me to reach. I could go on but all I can say is check out the PT location and enjoy the results you will see and also enjoy the "vibe" this team puts out each and every visit.Tim more

I was treated mostly by Dr. Alicia (Therapist) and assisted by Rob (Trainer) at the The Professional Physical Therapy in Andover, MA. Also, met Dr. Kate for a few sessions. I am very pleased with the overall experience. Everyone at the facility was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Not... only was I treated with good therapy but also was helped with the coaching/ongoing workout plans for maintaining good physical well being going forward. I would highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy in Andover, more

Wednesday and Friday mornings (7am!) quickly became week highlights. Kate Gleason, PT, DPT and her teammate, Rob are outstanding at what they do. The space is clean and orderly, their hours are convenient for the every day working adult, the therapy is specific and tailored to you, and the RESULTS... will speak for themselves. As a marathoner preparing for BOSTON 5.20.20, my timetable was aggressive. Throughout my treatment, preparation for race day could not take a seat on the sidelines; I had to keep running, running hard throughout. Kate and Rob knew and acknowledged this; together we made it work. Road to recovery.I was discharged today with a complete to do list of exercises and stretches to stay on top of and was encouraged to e-mail with Kate if anything come up. I am feeling much more confident, and pain-free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Andover Professional more

I’ve been to several other PT's over the years, and this is far and away the best. Kate and Rob create such a welcoming, fun and motivational environment that it’s truly a pleasure to be there. You wouldn’t think you could have a great time while rehabbing/working through aches and pains but it’s... a routine occurrence here. Not to mention I can't remember the last time I was pain free before coming here. The location is perfect for anyone travelling the 93/495 corridor (right off exit 45 of 93) and they have very flexible hours. 10 out of 10read more
