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.
