Ben, Indira, and crew are the best in the biz! There is a welcoming, professional, and attentive atmosphere in the place. It makes you look forward to physical therapy every week. I have gone through a couple of physical therapists in the past and this team is the best at adapting to changing pains... and needs by adjusting exercises and treatment. Cannot recommend enough!read more

Excellent physical therapists and staff. Indira and Mackenzie are expert PTs and are supportive and kind. Stephanie, a PT student intern is great. Everyone who helped me did so with knowledge, experience and support. I never felt judged or uncomfortable. I am stronger and healthier from the PT... sessions and the home exercises. Thank you to all.read more

I had shoulder pain that would not go away for a year. They evaluated my condition quickly, thoroughly, and correctly, and gave me an exercise regimen. I did the exercises and got better in a month. They are that good.I was very concerned to know how the exercises worked, because I wanted to be... able to keep doing them on my own. They answered all my questions thoroughly and clearly. Mackenzie, in particular, is knowledgeable and clear.Also, they are very nice. That probably shouldn't matter, but when you are doing hard things that hurt a little, it can.Overall it was the best experience imaginable. They fixed pain and weakness that I had feared was unfixable.read more

I can't recommend this PT team enough!!! McKenzie and Indira are both fantastic therapists. They are very professional, caring and thoughtful in their practice. They are also incredibly generous with their time and professional guidance. The facility is clean and very comfortable. I've been to many... other PT facilities over the years but none compare with this one and this team of therapists.read more

My knee and me will forever be thankful to everybody at Professional Physical Therapy. From the moment you walk in everybody is friendly and welcoming and they know what they are doing. Ben is the best! He got my knee to be just like it was before the surgery and gotta say that it’s even better.... Can’t recommend this place enough!read more

Ben is awesome! I’ve had one session for my cervical and the same day I had relief on the most bothersome part of my body. He was able to pinpoint exactly where the problem is stemming from after a couple of muscle manipulation. I love coming here because the atmosphere is friendly and you don’t... feel pressured. You can even wear jeans as long as you can do the moves.As for the receiving area, Michelle is great and very accommodating. Very pleasant. But I guess not everybody loves their job because I would rather not encounter the other receptionist whose name I didn’t bother to know. My first visit, she was able to move everybody’s schedule around with cancellations and rescheduling over the phone but she couldn’t take me in any time that same day. I’m in pain and I just don’t have the patience for attitude problems.read more

As a result of months of isolation in this pandemic, my husband and I had our physical conditions (ACL surgery and sarcopenia) worsened. The therapists at the clinic on 4th Street, with patience and dedication, managed to get this old east villager couple back on track. We are grateful for their... excellent work. Great clinic. Great professionals.read more

Nathalie and the staff are thoughtful, attentive and professional. They have me doing exercises that are difficult to do by myself and have taken lots of time teaching me to do them correctly. I am very confident that my shoulders will be back to normal soon. I highly recommend ProPT.
