Hear From Our Patients

Hina T.
I was very anxious going into therapy because of the pain in my hip, for which I didn’t know the cause. However, my therapist Angie helped me a lot with giving me a detailed assessment and explaining everything I did to me so I felt confident. She was also very easy to talk to and made the... challenging physical therapy so much more bearable, and I am grateful for how supported I felt the entire time.read more
Paul M.
Where do I start? I started coming to Professional Physical Therapy about 5 weeks ago, and all I can say is that I feel much better than I did at the beginning of this journey. But, I wouldn’t have been able to come this far without the support and assistance from Angie. She is an essential aspect... of the team, and continuously doesn’t stop helping her patients until they feel better. Angie is always full of energy and friendly to every single one of her patients. Thank you Angie, you’re amazing!read more
Darren W.
Angie has been amazing. She is extremely detailed in her approach to my P/T. She has text me to check on my soreness after she adds new therapeutics. She also makes adjustments to my routine to help me better preform at work.

Jeff always makes going to PT a fun experience! I'm pushed to do what I can in order to recover quickly and efficiently! The entire staff makes me feel so welcome and I appreciate the time they take to make sure that you are getting the best care!
Aleks D.
Professional Physical Therapy helped me recover from my ACL injury very quickly and efficiently. Would highly recommend going with this PT office. If you do come make sure you ask for Jeff!!!
STEVEN A.
Eric Linares was incredibly attentive, observant, and diligent in both following and adjusting the recovery protocol based on how I was responding day to day. I credit him and PPT with helping me with a full and robust recovery.
Laura R.
I tore my TFCC in my left wrist in 2019 and have been to many doctors and hand therapists. I had surgery in 2020 and the previous hand therapists I had said there wasn't much they could do for me. I was an avid rock climber and worked out a lot and the thought that I may never get to climb again or... work out like I used to was devastating.I took one last try at a new therapist who was recommended to me by Dr. Siergermann. Eric Linares is incredible and that's an understatement. He was the first OT I've met and encountered that wasn't afraid of my injury. He was confident and super positive on day one. He wasn't afraid to push me even if I was. He has a lot of knowledge about my injury and was the first person who didn't tell me "this is as good your wrist will get". He didn't give up on me.I did more progress in the 2-3 months I've worked with Eric than I did the past year with my previous hand therapist. I've regained my strength, I began working out again like I used to. And I was able to rock climb again for the first time in 3 years. After being told I would never climb again or I'd have to pick a new hobby, being able to climb was huge for me. I can't express my gratitude enough for him.Thank you so much. I will always recommend him to anyone I know who may need help. Highly recommend!read more
Krzysztof T
Very nice and professional employees. They take great care that the patient feels good and comfortable. It gives them a score of 10/10

Eric is very knowledgeable. After I had undergone thumb surgery, he helped me achieve a level of normalcy, allowing me to use my hand again, as well as highly reducing my pain level.
Renelle P.
I went to Professional PT for treatment of a frozen shoulder. My physical therapist was Jeff. He always listened, was knowledgable and effective. At each visit I was greeted by Monica who was always helpful and welcoming. The physical therapists Jeff, Gus and Alan always worked as a team, keeping... an eye on each others' patients. Sessions went by quickly. I can now raise my arm overhead and have significant improvement in my range of motion. If you have to go for PT, I highly recommend their team. Thank you Jeff and Professional PT !!!!read more
Jeff H.
I worked with Eric Linares as my occupational therapist after being treated for Depuytren’s Contracture. The experience was awesome. Eric couldn’t have been easier to work with. He outlined what he was going to do in terms of treatment, he answered all my questions, and his bedside manner was a... 10 out of 10. My hand is feeling better, stronger, and I owe Eric a lot for getting me there. I can’t recommend him enough.read more
Marina S.
I fractured my hand October 2021 and Erick was my therapist .He is very professional , takes your injury seriously, and has a great personality.Now I can move my hand again with not pain thanks to him .Thanks Erick for all you do!!!
Mark F.
I had surgery on both hands for Dupuytren’s Contracture. I am a professional musician.Three months after surgery I was still unable to play the guitar due to scar tissue in my palms pressing on nerves that were causing discomfort and numbness.I saw Eric for hand therapy a dozen times and my... ability to play the guitar returned.He is an excellent physical therapist with a great personality that kept it from being a bore.read more
Dario C.
Eric Linares, my occupational therapist, was absolutely terrific. I highly recommend his professional services.
Keith M.
This was my first time receiving physical therapy. I went in with terrible lower back and hip pain that was bothering me every day for months. Within 5 weeks of working with the therapists, I feel like I am back to 100%! The treatment, staff, and playlists are all great! I strongly recommend... these guys!read more
Mary D.
I have been here for both my shoulder and my hands and all therapists I have worked with were very professional and really listened and responded to the issues I was facing. Thanks, Eric and Rebecca! You're the best!
Kathy R.
Rebecca was terrific- so was Jeff in her absence! Very knowledgeable and very professional! Would definitely go back here for therapy if ever needed again- (hope not!)
Ondrej K.
I had very positive experience with Professional Physical Therapy in Emerson and especially with my hand therapist Eric. My hand therapy for broken wrist started the same day the cast was removed and lasted for about 2 months. Typical session included heat pad, massage, assisting stretching and set... of exercises, some with highly specialized gadgets. Eric created an exercise program that evolved and was tweaked as my recovery progressed. The initial focus was on restoring range of motion and flexibility and shifted to gaining strength in the later stages of the therapy. As a result, I was able to achieve speedy recovery with range of motion and strength nearly matching my pre-injury condition. The therapy room was spacious and clean.I would recommend Eric to anyone needing hand therapy.read more
Brian E.
Great job with my shoulder labrum repair. Listened and understood my goals, and made a program which catered to my rehab.
Roger C.
I am very pleased with the professional care that I have received during my therapy sessions. The staff are all very professional and welcoming. They are very responsive. The facility is well equipped.
Anthony Belfert (.
I came to Professional PT with a torsional injury to my finger after a power tool incident. With little hope with rehabilitation for my nearly severed finger, I came in with the expectation to get better one day at a a time. With the help of my outstanding Occupational Therapist, Eric Linares, I... got better.... at first one day at a time. With Eric’s knowledge in finger rehabilitation, my recovery accelerated exponentially and I finished my rounds of therapy a lot sooner then expected. The rehabilitation exercises were challenging yet effective in restoring my fingers mobility, dexterity, and strength. The creativity and effectiveness behind the exercises are a true testament to Erics professional knowledge.Additionally, everyone working at Pro PT was super nice! I looked forward to catching up with Eric as well as the people at the desk. Other occupational therapy clients were easy to talk to and get along with... probably because we were all at ease since we were in good hands. I will genuinely miss coming twice a week and would recommend Professional PT and Eric Linares to anyone who needs help in that domain.read more
Nadine O.
I have seen Jeff and Rebecca for a rotator cuff injury and both are amazing professionals. Super knowledgeable, patient, and great at what they do. My range of motion has improved significantly in the three weeks that I’ve been attending. Highly recommend.
Jennifer R.
I am being treated for a repaired tendon in my wrist. Everyone is really nice and Devon who is the OT in Emerson is super supportive and listens very carefully. She has modified my routine according to my needs. She keeps a complete log of our discussions so she can relay the concerns we have in... the report to the doctor. I would definitely recommend this facility for OT and PT to all my friends.read more
Lauren R.
My lis franc surgeon recommended PPT. I have been going for a few weeks now 3 x a week. My foot is feeling 10x better. The office is clean, the staff is professional, very knowledgeable & friendly. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy!
Donna I.
Physical therapy is great here. The staff is very caring about your every needs. The therapists (Jeff ) is mine, go above and beyond to get you back into shape without suffering from pain. Every therapist is veryknowledgeable of what has to be done to accommodate your problem. The place is very... spotless. Mia at the front desk is the most pleasant person and helpful in scheduleing your appointments. Anybody having pain I reccomend this place.read more
Willa R.
I’ve been coming here since for about 9 months on and off and I would not go anywhere else. MaryLu Dunn and her staff are amazing. MaryLu is the most caring, professional and highly trained in every aspect of physical therapy and beyond. She’s thorough and passionate about her job. She goes above... and beyond anyone I have ever seen for PT in my life. I’ve been to other places and this, is by far, the best place! Highly recommend ! Trust me!read more
sameena S.
This place is the best place for therapy. Staffs are amazing and very caring. MaryLu is a wonderful lady. If I don’t come for therapy I wouldn’t know that. I am lucky to have her as my therapist. Other therapist are also amazing.
