Garrett R.
My time at StarPro has been quite positive. Aleksia, Erik and Brian, along with the rest of the StarPro team, are incredibly knowledgeable, attentive and have been massively helpful with my rehabilitation process. I would recommend StarPro at the 87th St. location (Manhattan) for physical therapy... services and more
Beth H.
Aleksia and staff were wonderful to work with. Aleksia was able to determine exactly what I needed in order to get me back to 100% in just a short couple of months. I have chronic back issues and was fearful of making things worse by adding weights to my exercise regimen, but Aleksia and Erik put... my fears at ease from day one. They were very attentive and took the time to check on me throughout my session to make sure that I was doing things properly and felt comfortable. I looked forward to the therapy each week as I knew I was getting stronger and ultimately was able to continue the routine on my own at more
Jeff H.
Aleksia and her team were fantastic as I recovered from 2 ACL reconstructions done two months apart. She and Erik were attentive and very helpful in getting me back to full speed in a total of about 8 months. They have the right combination of knowing how to keep you progressing and making the... process enjoyable as they are both great people to be around. Aleksia makes patient care a priority while still balancing the responsibilities of running the practice. She and the team get a 10 out of 10 in my more

Eric and Brian have been treating me for neck pain. They are wonderful. Neck pain is getting better. They are attentive to my physical therapy needs
Justin D.
Aleksia, Brian, and Eric are terrific physical therapists. I mostly work with Eric, who is very kind, patient, and regularly models exactly what to do. As a public school teacher, I recognize and appreciate how these PTs work with me and I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
Brian and the 177 E 87th street team are awesome! I couldn’t even move when I first started. I stayed consistent with what they taught me and I have improved dramatically. Aleksia and Erik (aka Coach Erik) were also awesome! Even the receptionist Janett was super welcoming and helpful with... more

I came to StarPro therapy after a knee injury from running. I started PT early February. I had my intake with the fabulous Aleksia, who was empathetic to my pain, which I really appreciated after seeing doctors that did not take my pain seriously. I went from being unable to walk across my living... room to walking 10k+ steps during a trip to Spain within two weeks! I also worked alongside Erik who was very kind and helpful as he reminded me of the exercises I had to do. I appreciate all the staff here as well as Brian who supported me during my time at this location. The staff all want you to get better and it shows! Even when I found the exercises too difficult, they were willing to adjust to build up to more challenging exercises. When I first came to PT, I felt like the pain was going to last forever but now I can say it is all gone and I am also better equipped to prevent future injuries. By my last day, Aleksia even put together a strength training program for me to continue outside of PT. I would 100% recommend this location to everyone. It can get a little crowded depending on the time, but what can I say it's the staff that gets people coming back. :Dread more

My experience with the E87th branch of Professional PT was excellent. I began my sessions with Aleksia (and sometimes with Erik as well) five days after receiving a total hip replacement and I give them full credit for my progress since then. Both Aleksia and Erik were fantastic: professional,... extremely knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. They were willing to push me, but always reasonably and with what I felt was the appropriate amount of caution. They took the time to explain what was happening and made me feel as though I had ownership over my recovery. Yes, hip replacements suck, but Aleksia and Erik made my post-surgical rehab not just remarkably productive but even enjoyable. I really can't say enough good things about Professional PT - and especially Aleksia and more
David G.
I had to have major knee surgery (ACL reconstruction, medial and lateral meniscus repair, and osteochondral allograft) after a basketball injury. Aleksia got me through both prehab and rehab like a champ. She's a compassionate, kind, knowledgeable and thorough therapist that pushed me to keep... working hard. I was back on the softball field 6 months later and couldn't have done it without more
Kariym F.
The staff here are by far exceptional at their job and always delightful to talk to. They are hands on and always 5 steps ahead in aiding healthy progressive plans for their patients. I personally love coming here because it actually lifts my spirits. As a fireman I'm so in a rush to get... everything done for quick results. Here they show great patients and help you better understand their plan to help you. I mainly work with Winston and Aleksia majority of the time and they have been phenomenal. Every single staff member from the front desk to the Physical Therapist are just so knowledgeable and give great communication. I know I have 6 months of recovery time and I'm happy I get to do it with this marvelous group of more
Carrie M.
I have been working with Aleksia for a few months now to help with upper back pain. She has been amazing—attentive, knowledgeable, and effective! The exercises she’s given me have improved my strength and posture so much, and she changes up my routine to keep me challenged. She knew exactly what to... do to help release the tension that was causing me so much pain. Scheduling is easy. She is fun to talk to, too! I highly recommend more
Barrianne B.
Just finished my last session, 8 weeks post-knee arthroscopy, and have been so happy with Winston and the team. Dedicated, patient, and knowledgeable, they helped me through this rough period and got me back biking and running. Highly recommend, and Winston is a PT gem. I've had a lot of PT, and... he is among the best therapists I've more
Charisse S. G.
Everyone is so friendly and extremely professional. They care about getting you pain free and mobile while listening to your concerns.
Central P.
Shout out to Winston who is a knowledgeable and excellent therapist.The scheduling and treatment is seamless and easy.
This practice is incredible. Fantastic healing abilities. You can make true health changes & turn anything around with the help of Professional Physical Therapy. As a performer I am always excited to move & after being injured the phenomenal Winston has turned into a true hero because not only has... he gotten me through the injury he has turned into an integral part of me growing into a better healthier animal! I feel beyond grateful that I found this practice. It has been life changing. You feel the kindness and warmth by everyone there from the moment you enter the room. Truly incredible healing more
Marcia S.
They always seem to alleviate the problem. Aleksia has been wonderful. A PT who really knows her stuff.
Nida K.
Winston is the best physical therapist I’ve ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable, professional and well prepared!!
This is the best physical therapy I’ve ever been to. Winston is my primary therapist and an amazing professional - committed, integer, flexible and focused on providing the best care possible. I’ve been coming here for over 2 years for chronic issues and don’t want to go anywhere else. The other... PTs, assistants and front desks are very friendly and professional as well. The facility itself is nice and clean. I highly recommend this more
Winston was my primary therapist. He’s a true professional and very personable. My doctor gave the authorization for me to attend 3 sessions a week for 4 weeks, but with Winston’s care plan I was ready to go back to work in less than 3 weeks. The assistants are very knowledgeable and do a great job... coaching you through the workouts. The front desk receptionists are really pleasant and made the registration process a breeze. Great friendly staff. Highly more
Claire B
I went in with acute elbow pain thinking how is this going to help. Well I was extremely surprised! With the the care plan Aleksia prepared and constantly and carefully tweaked it helped greatly ! Aleskia was not only great at what she does she was also empathetic ! highly recommend!
Arnoldo M.
After basically being told that I would need back surgery, I headed to PT thinking that nothing would change the fact that I needed an operation. I was proven wrong by the amazing staff at Professional PT, I have been working with Aleksia who is nothing short of fantastic! She created a home... workout plan that has reduced the pain to almost unnoticeable, she is always thinking of new exercises and techniques that have aided in my recovery. I am incredibly happy going here and am looking forward to a full more
Alyssa G.
This place was great! I was a patient here from June until early December. I had the pleasure of working with Aleksia C. for most of my treatment and she was wonderful! She really thought outside the box with her treatment plans and truly cared about my well-being. The other therapists there were... also great and so nice. If I ever need PT again I will not hesitate to come more
Pamela S.
Very caring and compassionate staff. Winston was my excellent therapist and he, along with Joyce, another lovely therapist, set the tone with their friendliness, knowledge and professionalism. The atmosphere is low-key but the results are noteworthy. I was there 2x a week for 10 weeks and made... tremendous gains. I would recommend them without more
Marilyn K.
I was suffering from chronic backaches for years and more recently from headaches. I went to Orthopedists and Chiropractors with no relief. A pain management doctor gave me a script for physical therapy. After just 2 sessions with Richard at Professional Physical Therapy and doing the stretches... he gave me at home, I am pain free! I highly recommend this more
Jennifer F.
I'm working with richard and he has a great personality and is very attentive. I also feel like he understands my complaints and is working hard to reduce my pain and get me back on track!
Marcia H.
excellent spot for PT...Vito, head therapist is awesome.
Sara L.
This place has been amazing!! The entire staff ,from the front desk to the therapists, are all so welcoming and knowledgeable. My therapist, Mr. Vito Pinto, at this location has been hands down fantastic. Pushing me with compassion towards a successful recovery after my ACL reconstruction surgery.... I'm only 4 weeks post-op and the progress has been great. I would strongly recommend this location for your physical therapy more
Bon B.
It's a great place! Everyone who works there is very skilled and caring. I wholeheartedly recommend Professional Physical Therapy to anyone in need of good physical therapy. Vito, a PT, is the Director and does an expert job. The physical therapists advise the clients on style so that exercises... are done correctly. Jeannette, at the front desk, does a wonderful job with the phone, insurance forms, etc., and is a more
