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

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

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

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

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

Aleksia graduated from a combined program receiving her bachelors degree in Rehabilitation Science and doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University in 2021. Although she loved her time in Boston, she is happy to return to the state she grew up in as she was able to fall in love with the energy and atmosphere NYC provided during her clinical experiences here. Aleksia’s drive and enthusiasm for this occupation began when she was injured on the field as she has previously been a competitive athlete in lacrosse and field hockey. During those athletic years, the realization set in that this career would be most rewarding and align with her passions. She strives to holistically treat her patients and actively listen to their concerns so that their goals consistently align with the plan of care. In her spare time, you can catch her taking a Rumble Boxing class or exploring new restaurants. She currently supports a youth mentoring program, EmpowerHER- an organization created for young girls who have experienced the loss of their mother, and one day hopes to run the NYC Marathon as their sponsor!
