Barbara J.
I had Carpal Tunnel surgery on my right hand and elow area May 29th. I just started hand therapy on June 17th. From the first day my experience has been positive. My Therapist is Ryan. He is great, also his Assistant. I am on my way to recovery with the help of Professional Physical Therapy and... Ryan Wysocki.The exercises Ryan gave me to do at home is helping me greatly. I will definitely be compliant with my scheduled visits as well as my at home exercises.Thank you to my Orthopedic Surgeon for the referral to Professional Physical Therapy. I look forward to continuing progress in more
Marilou D.
Professional Physical Therapy has been the best PT facility I could have chosen to help me heal from my knee replacement surgery. I thought that the other PT facility I had chosen first would be the best one to help me but, man, was I wrong! Professional Physical Therapy was far more helpful,... effective, efficient, just to name a few, because they listen to their patients and work with them instead of making everyone fit in one mold and all heal the same way, with one kind of therapy, that has to be painful or else it's not good enough, even if the patient is begging you to be more gentle.So switching my therapy to the Professional group was the best I could have done. They are working on my knee, helping me to be able to bend it, use it more, showing me what exercises will encourage muscle use and help me see what doing the exercises accomplishes. I am very thankful for Professional Physical more

Ryan helps me with my hands. He is very good at what he does. No matter what the problem he has an answer.Jason is very good at what he does. He is caring. He will always take time to help you through something. I'm glad to have him helping me.
Sarah A.
I can only rave about Ryan the hand therapist at professional PT. He knows what he's doing and works quickly . To add to it he has a warm welcoming personality that makes everyone feel that they are the only patient. Being treated.
marilynn F.
I use Jason and Anthony for my sessions for a strained shoulder. Both are great, and I am getting better every day. They have exercises designed to address my issue and sent a detailed video link for me to do at home. Thanks! A+
Ronald K.
Ryan & staff are simply the best at making you feel comfortable during therapy. Always on time, prompt and efficient and you may even manage to get a few laughs in along the way.
Mary M.
I am very happy with my therapy to date.I am very happy of the suggestion i received on Nextdoor..perfect choice. I have received therapy prior to surgery elsewhere but did not receive the care as I do here.They dont overbook and offer individualized care.Jason has been amazing..he has treated... me with kindness and understanding, He encourages my limitations by offering suggestions to allow progression of my therapyI definitely recommend!read more
Great place. All the therapists are fantastic, they take time with you and are legitimately concerned about your issues and work on them to get you pain free and functioning normally again and back to everyday life activities. They have a hard job and all of them do it above and beyond!! Girls at... front desk are great! They accommodate you the best they can setting up your appointments, working around your schedule and anything else you have questions about. The therapist's aides are fantastic! Always there when you need something, from showing you an exercise, getting you heat or ice they are on point always! Place is clean and always good conversation with everyone that works there while doing therapy. Clifton office is 10 stars!!!!read more

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful throughout. The therapist take time to tend to your problem areas and assess your progress. I feel comfortable and would recommend anyone to visit for physical therapy.
Steve V.
Small location in comparison to some of the other places I’ve gone to for therapy but they absolutely get the job done. My therapists were Jason & Kelly. Primarily Jason, he was exceptionally accommodating for me as my schedule was very rigid and pretty much only allowed me to attend therapy within... a small window of time and Jason always allowed me to come even if he was over booked. Overall I had a great experience there and would use them again. If I had to nitpick my only quarrel would be that they schedule you weekly instead of scheduling you for the month so when it’s time to schedule they would say no sessions available at that time or would say Jason is not available, but again Jason would always make it more
Kerim P.

Michael C.
Professional Physical Therapy is a top notch physical therapy practice. I have had nothing but outstanding experiences here with all the staff. Jason was an amazing therapist, who knows his stuff better than anyone and works in such a great manner. The rest of the staff was also very helpful and... friendly. Therapy was seriously a breeze with this practice and I feel 100 percent improved after using them. Would recommend to anyone in need of physical more

Friendly, competent staff-always willing to help. Kelly is an excellent physical therapist. My physical therapy was extremely productive. Kelly and the staff made the experience a very pleasant one
mary lou S.
I have been to quite a few Professional physical therapy offices. The Clifton office has proven to be very effective and friendly and professional. I usually go to the Nutley office but when Kelly Helm left the Nutley office , I could not find another physical therapist that had the same quality... of professionalism, empathy, caring that she shows every day she works on me. When I found out she was in the Clifton office I was very happy that I could continue my recovery with more

I have been coming to Professional Physical Therapy since December 2021 with no idea what was wrong with me. Jason, my main physical therapist, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable the entirety of my time there as a patient. He always had a new exercise for me to try out for a different pain I... was having. Over the course of the last four months, I slowly but surely started getting better with Jason's help! As an otherwise healthy and active 22 year old, being bedridden with knee and hip pain seemingly out of nowhere, it was extremely discouraging going from doctor to doctor and hearing that there isn't anything medically wrong but Professional Physical Therapy not only validated me and the pain I was feeling but helped me overcome and learn the possible causes of it all. I finally "graduated" this week and as much as I will miss the staff, I am so glad I got my life back and am able to be active again. Their slogan of "Challenging Limits to Transform Lives" is absolutely true! Physical therapy is no joke and after it all I can definitely agree they have transformed my life and made me much for aware of the limits my body can handle. All I can really say is thank you so so SO much to Jason, JB and Kelly!! I'll visit with cookies or something to show my appreciation. :)read more

I cannot express enough how this place helped me Recuperate from my knee injury. This was my first experience at PT in Clifton NJ. I spent 6 weeks under their care to helped build up muscle strength after suffering a torn meniscus. It was just a small tear but my pain and suffering was... tremendous. My doctor recommended this place as there was no need for me to do surgery. Everyone in this place is great and friendly. However I have to credit JP Cecilio for being such a great Physical Therapist with Excellent bedside manners. He started me off slowly with the exercises and increased them as time went on. He takes his time with you and massaging your problem area after you complete the exercises. He recommended that I continue with the exercises even after PT was over. I joined a gym and I’m happy to report that I am no longer in severe pain. Today I went up the stairs in no pain. I thank God for this place and I recommend them to everyone who needs more
My experience at the Clifton location has been very good. My therapist Anthony has been very supportive and I feel I have progressed greatly. The entire staff is very friendly creating a nice environment to advance your rehabilitation. I would highly recommend the Clifton professional therapy... more

Joe B.
I fractured my bone and tore some tendons in my ankle. I was referred to professional physical therapy by my podiatrist. Since my first visit here to drop off my script it had been a pleasure. The front desk girls are great and always so helpful and accommodating. Making appointments are very... smooth and easy .Kelly ! Kelly is my physical therapist .and she is amazing. I come 3x a week for 3 weeks so far and I look forward to every visit. I never feel rushed and I always am listened too no matter how many times I tell her the same thing about my ankle. She provides me with many different exercises to do to strengthen and challenge my ankle. My ankle within 3 weeks already feels stronger. She fully explains everything and takes her time with you. All staff members are great and helpful. It shows that she really cares about her patients and that’s very important to me.Overall the staff is amazing and the place is very clean and Sanitary .I will continue my future therapies here .Highly recommend!read more

The staff is knowledgeable and courteous. The PTs exemplify the top in their profession, knowing body mechanics and processes to return the system to full painfree use. Making appointments to fit my schedule was easy to do. I highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy.

John is knowledgable, caring and effective.I am most pleased with my improvements.
Kaylah N.
I absolutely love this place! I didn’t want to stop my physical therapy even though my doctor said I no longer needed to go. The staff is so friendly and attentive. Kim and Amy became my friends we could talk about anything. Kim was always so honest about my progress and pushed me when necessary. I... wouldn’t go any where else for physical therapy, they’re the more

I highly recommend this place , staff are very nice from the welcoming receptionist to their PT aide very helpful.

I can... move now my Right shoulder very well- Thank you ! also for those other PTs in this place as I observe how they treat their individual patients - keep up the good work 👍. I’m so grateful to everyone of you❤️read more
Alexander S.
Excellent facility with very professional and courteous staff.Highly recommended.
Anne S.
The previous review from Karen McQueen says it all for me. I needed PT following neck surgery. This facility's staff truly meets and goes beyond in their professionalism and care towards all their patients. All the staff worked as a cohesive unit and I highly recommend this facility.My range of... motion increased significantly under their care. I received a home exercise program from Kim and 3 months later my ROM continues to improve.Thank you all, you are amazing: Kim, Palak, Kyle, May, John, Sean, Connor and everyone more
Karen M.
I was recommended to proceed with physical therapy after being diagnosed with a shoulder tear. I was nervous about recuperation to be able to continue with work.If I had known then what an amazing facility this was, I wouldn't have been nervous at all.The professionalism and overall caring... demeanor of the staff can't even be expressed into words. They made you feel 100% comfortable and I loved that every single person that walked in, they greeted them by name from facial recognition, not by just looking at their names in a file. They went above and beyond to know each and every one of their patients as people. They kept everyone talking and happy take their minds off of what they were doing so their bodies could get the rehab they needed.I cannot thank the staff that I worked with enough: Kim, Kyle, May, John, Sean, Connor and everyone else who were beyond amazing.I would highly recommend this facility. I went in there with maybe 30% mobility and walked out of there with more than 90% in 6 weeks and was able to return to my normal work habits. The exercise plan they sent home with me will hopefully get me the rest of the more
Elizabeth P.
My daughter went here for PT after spine surgery and they helped her tremendously. When I had a knee replacement she insisted I go here for my therapy. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and make what could be an unpleasant experience very pleasant. They take the time to answer questions and... I feel very comfortable there. I'm still in the process of PT and every time I go I feel better and see the progress. I would recommend them to anyone needing more

I began my journey when members of my family had to attend physical therapy for their various injuries. At the time, I was a biomedical engineering student who was learning to design prostheses and joint replacement devices. I realized I wanted to help the patient through the cycle of healing instead. After graduating from engineering school, I enrolled in the college of physicians and surgeons at Columbia University and started my journey of helping others in their recovery.

I became an OT because I wanted to help people return to the things in life that they need to do. I chose to specialize in hand and upper extremity therapy because everything we do on a daily basis will involve our fingers to our shoulders. I’ve always been someone who wanted to work with his hands and not sit still as well as someone with a desire to help others. When a person experiences an injury to the upper body, it effects that person’s performance in all ways. I’ve always been intrinsically motivated by the desire and drive to return people to their highest level of recovery, function, and achievement and I treat in a manner which is representative of this.
