I would recommend it with absolute confidence, they do an excellent service, both my mother and I have received therapy from Mr. Chikere McIntosh, he does an excellent and devoted job with each of his patients. Congratulations for your good work.

I attended PT at the East Hanover location for about 6 weeks for rehab on my knee for meniscus surgery. Aside from the perfect convenience of this neighborhood location for me, the personal care and attention was spot on. Don’t let the location sway you away as it’s tucked away in a smaller area... because you will get the professional help you need. My therapist was Chiki. I have to say he was always pleasant, friendly, intelligent, professional and informative. I was so discouraged with how my knee felt but he gave me the confidence to trust in his word that he would get my knee feeling normal again and he was right. He’s a great therapist and I highly recommend this place to get your injuries more

Amazing. I'll definietey refer my friends to them. Check them out if you are looking for nice physical... more

Professional Physical Therapy At 64 River Rd East Hanover Nj 07936 Was An Excellent Place For My Physical Therapy.Chikere McIntosh And The Entire Staff Are Great. I Went There Because Of An Earlier Spine Injury That Left Me With Weakness And Unbalance On My Right Side. After 12 Sessions With... Chikere The Weakness And Balance On My Right Side Improved Substantially. I Highly Recommend This more

I had surgery earlier this year to repair the AC Joint in my right shoulder after a snowboarding accident. About 2 months after surgery, while still going through the recovery process with Kim and her phenomenal team, I then broke my collarbone in the same shoulder "lightly" playing soccer.Prior... to these two back-to-back events, I never had a broken bone in my body or suffered any type of serious soft tissue injury in my 42 years of living a very active lifestyle. As you could imagine I had many questions along the way and needed to make sure I was working with the right team to help get me back to playing sports, lifting weights, and just feeling like myself again. Kim was up for the challenge and her expertise and knowledge shined brightest when it mattered most and we needed to change course.I am thrilled with the results, back in the gym, and beginning to do the things I love again. If I could give a 6th star, I would. My family and I are very grateful for Kim and the rest of the team at Professional Physical Therapy in East Hanover!read more

Very professional and friendly at the same time. Chikere is such a knowledgeable, kind, patient and caring physical therapist who functions with compassion and continues to educate me as to the physical nature of the problem. Highly recommend.
Michele K.
I have been working with Kim for the past few months after a total hip replacement. Her knowledge, compassion and professionalism made what could have been an overwhelming experience an amazing one. Kim implemented an exercise program that had to take into consideration back issues I have so she... made sure to provide what I needed for my hip didn’t aggravate my back. Her commitment to my recovery was exceptional. Kim, Chiki and staff really make sure you attain the goals necessary for recovery. I highly recommend this facility for anyone looking for amazing more

I’ve been under the care of Kim and Chike for two separate injuries and they are both extremely knowledgable and informative during my sessions. They have played an active role in my recovery and have even helped me continue with my program when insurance issues occurred and after discharge. I... highly recommend PT more

Chikere worked with both of my daughters to heal their knee issues. Very knowledgeable and friendly! We were very happy!
Day B.
I needed PT for my broken foot and my friend recommended me to come to Professional PT. And it’s like magic! My foot feels so much better right after the first session. Kim is truly professional, knowledgeable, skilled and helping me, I can feel, from her heart. Herself, her colleagues and her... assistants are all amazing and friendly. They all pay attention to individual needs. Kim and her assistants helped me getting movement back within short periods of time. It’s just like magic.. Thank you so more
Genera M.
I’ve been coming here for 3 months, and I am so thrilled with my results - all thanks to Chikere! I appreciate how personable and professional he is; He knew my limits and made sure to keep me at an appropriate pace. Also, the staff is wonderful! Both Tasha and Emily were very helpful with... scheduling and making sure to follow up with me on the days I rushed out and didn’t schedule my next appt. Also, Danielle was a great help and made sure to keep me on track with my workouts, checking on my form and setting up my exercises! Such a professional environment - highly recommend!read more
Kevin K.
Kimberly at Professional PT is amazing! I needed her services twice - once for a shoulder and most recently for a hip. Her hands-on therapy sessions helped me tremendously and the exercise program she implemented helped me get through both issues quickly and professionally. In fact, the hip... recovery program she developed got me out and on my own weeks ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend Kimberly and Professional more
Nirav S.
Chikere has been really awesome. I had my tennis elbow issue resolved in less than 6 weeks. I would highly recommend him.- Nirav Shah
Raghavendra R.
Kim is really amazing, and the entire staff is just as wonderful — knowledgeable, caring, attentive, professional and at the same time very personal.I have been going here for the last 3 months to recover from a broken knee cap surgery. In hindsight, I sometimes cannot believe the progress I have... made, from being barely able to lift my leg to having my full range of motion back… all made possible because of the excellent care and training I received.The exercise routines that they offered me were just perfect. Each session is designed to be slightly more aggressive than the previous one, and new exercises are added at appropriate intervals based on your progress to enable continuous improvement. At no point did I feel overwhelmed with the program, and Kim kept a reassuring watch on every exercise to ensure proper technique and tolerance.The place is also large enough that provides a group like setting, but at the same time Kim’s attention and involvement for every person enables for a very personal environment that you look forward to. They were also very flexible with the schedules and were very accommodating on numerous occasions I had to reschedule my appointments.Overall, I am grateful to Kim and her staff for my recovery, and for being wonderful care providers. I truly recommend this place to anyone looking to seek physical therapy in and around this more
kita P.
Professional Physical Therapy therapists, specifically Kimberly Cipriano and the young assistant therapists who worked with her during my sessions were incredibly gifted, knowledgeable and encouraging. I had the opportunity to observe how much personal attention and commitment they provided to all... of the people they were treating. They only had the best interests of the people they were treating at heart and set practical and realistic more
kathy C.
Kim is great! She helped me get back on my feet after a total knee replacement. Recently, she gave me an exercise program that has alleviated a back problem I've had for years. I highly recommend this office!
lauren M.
I had a wonderful experience at this location… both Kim and Chickie were extremely professional. I would highly recommend this facility!
Emily C.
I had rotator cuff surgery (full thickness tear and bicep tendon tear) and my orthopedic surgeon told me I would need 12 months of PT. Given how much time I would be spending with my PT, it was really important for me to find the right PT. I saw a few PTs post-surgery and I have been seeing Kim... for 8 weeks now. She provides individualized therapy - always giving me new exercises that are very tailored to what I need. She has also been in contact with my orthopedic surgeon to share my progress or lack more
Pat P.
Kim is an outstanding Physical Therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and treats patients in a kind way. She is the BEST !
Andrew B.
I worked with Chikere for 2-3 months. He helped me strengthen my right leg after several knee surgeries. His guidance and caring were evident from the outset. I would highly recommend him and the entire staff!Andy B
Pete B.
Very helpful and conscientious.They ask lots of questions as your therapy advances.
Galina P.
I needed PT after I broke my shoulder. My brother-in-law recommended to make an appointment with Kimberly because she helped him a lot a year ago. I did just that and didn’t regret it for a minute. Kim is a true professional who is not just very good at her job, but truly cares about every patient... she takes care of. First I felt very special :-) because Kimberly paid so much attention to me, but then I realized that she pays as much attention to every patient. Everybody in that facility are extremely friendly and helpful and I think Kim sets the more
Janet B.
I went to PT for a partial tear of my rotator cuff. Kim was an excellent therapist and understood my desire to push myself in order to try to avoid surgery. The care was excellent, the facility not overcrowded (Covid concerns) and everyone is very friendly. I recommend this facility and Kim without... more
Danielle Belson K.
I have now been a patient of Kim’s at Professional PT in East Hanover on two different occasions in the last 3 years. Each time has been amazing. Kim is so knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and just so skilled at her job. She is on a whole other level than prior physical therapists that I... went to in NYC or elsewhere; she is much, much better.One important point, which is different than other practices where I was a patient, is that Kim is truly aware and involved in what all of her patients are doing at any point in time. When I am doing my exercises, she is always commenting on what I am doing, while still giving plenty of attention to the patient that is being attended to on the table. I 100% wholeheartedly recommend Kim and Professional PT. I truly would not go anywhere else!read more
jack R.
Kim has been my therapist on 5 different occasions.The first was hip replacement surgery.Kim also was my therapist on another hip replacement ,two shoulder surgeries,and a broken foot.I recently moved eighty miles away from the East Hanover facility I still returned to be treated there and then... remotely for A rotator cuff injury .The treatment I have received over the years has not only got me to work but made my retirement life so much more enjoyable.Kim is an incredible therapist .When I talk to friends about their experiences in P.T.I realize how positive my experience has been in comparison .I've come out stronger,more confident knowing Kim has returned me to condition stronger than before my more
Tina C.
I suffer from a herniated disc in my neck. Kim is the most professional, knowledgeable, warm and confident therapist I’ve met. She was referred to me by my aunt who had a knee replacement. Best decision I made was choosing her.Very well run and professional facility. I would definitely recommend... her services!read more
The staff are dedicated and caring. Have been working with Jen. She has done wonders for me.Love this facility.
jerry P.
The staff was great. Jen and Kim really know their stuff.
Joanne W.
The staff here is kind and courteous. They really take the time to listen to you and what is ailing you. * They have also worked well with my teenage son. They took the time to teach him about how his arm works with his sports so he hopefully will not re-injure it.
Katherine A M.
Very caring therapist, aides and receptionist. Kristen has the patience of a saint. Only thing better would be if they had "STAIRS" so after leg surgery, a person could practice. Would definitely refer others there.
Brandon I.
Fantastic experience going here, seeing therapist Kristin Westover. This is an office environment that is welcoming and warm, where coming in feels more like a pleasant, healthy routine (e.g. going to the gym), than a dreaded doctor’s visit. I leave visits feeling a little bit stronger and... healthier, rather than tired and beat-up, as folks can often feel from physical therapy. Kristin is firm in doing her job properly, but are always gentle & compassionate. Highly recommend Kristin and the EH Professional office!read more
Jennifer J.
The therapists are thorough and knowledgeable. Nice relaxing environment.
Kelley M.
Very knowledgeable and professional staff. Clean, convenient location. Highly recommend!
Andy S.
First class service, professionals doing what they do best! Nice environment.
