Best physical therapy I have been to. Everyone is so friendly and the therapists/crew works so Great together. This is the only PT place I will use should I need it. I look forward to my visits as it is well worth the relief you receive.
Terri B.
I have been to a few other places for PT and this by far has been the best experience. The facility is well run and clean. The women who work at the front desk are extremely helpful, friendly and always greet everyone by name with a smile. All the employees are professional, hands on and make it... fun. The assistants are amazing, they make you feel comfortable to be there. Its like a small family atmosphere. Chris Harsh has been working on my elbow, now my knee and has helped me to understand every step of the process of how everything works helping me to heal and get to my goals with his motivation. He listens closely each session to make sure his plan is personalized for my needs. Its very effective I saw results each week after months of consistent pain. I highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy!read more

This is the second time I've been visiting here for physical therapy. The first time was with John and recently I've been doing sessions with JT. I can't judge their other locations but this one is great.They have a wide range of equipment to help you progress with your recovery goals and are... flexible with appointment times to fit your schedule. From the ladies reception checking you in to the PT and their assistants, everyone is attentive and friendly.I'll be sad when my sessions are done since they're great staff to be around. Highly recommend this location for your PT needs.read more

I have had excellent experiences at professional physical therapy in Garden City. Chris Harsh is quite simply the most knowledgeable and effective healthcare provider I have ever worked with. He has treated me for severe lower back pain/herniated disc and for shoulder tendinitis. His knowledge of... anatomy and mechanics is encyclopedic and he always educates as he treats you. He develops challenging treatment plans that produce steady progress but also make you feel safe. He considers your personal health and mobility goals when developing the plan. Most importantly he knows how to keep you motivated when the going gets rough. I am so grateful to have found Chris and professional. My experience there has allowed me to keep playing sports competitively and pain free!read more

I cant recommend the Garden City office enough! I am someone who doesnt usually feel comfortable with new people but from the minute you walk in, till the time you walk out, everyone is so kind and knowledgeable you cant help but feel at ease. I have only been going to this office for my neck for... a few weeks, but my symptoms are already improving. Katie treats all of her patients with compassion and humor and pushes you to reach your goals, all while maintaining a smile on her face. In fact...everyone here is always smiling! (Usually means good management!)If you are in pain...go here! You won't be disappointed!read more

I highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy! Everyone there is extremely helpful and they want to see you get better. Katie is my therapist and she is the best!

The professional, dedicated and incredibly talented staff at Professional Physical Therapy has helped me to make a full recovery after undergoing bilateral reconstructive knee surgery.

I was blown away by Professional Physical Therapy. I had never been to PT before and was nervous/skeptical but had such an amazing experience. Every single employee is very hands on and helpful with the recovery process. They catered to my personal needs/recovery and have helped me really grow in... the process. I worked very closely with student physical therapist, James, and really appreciate how helpful he was to me. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who needs PT.read more

Excellent staff. Great atmosphere for therapy. Tyler was the man, detailed attentive. Other therapist, Tim, J.T. provide professional support during my time there as well.

Special kudos to Jessica W and Branislav B who have magical fingers. Tom, Tim and those whose names i can't recall are all supportive. Marlene gets me the time slots I need. If you need physical therapy, look no further. This is the place.read more

I have always been surrounded by sports my whole life. I played baseball and soccer until high school when I committed to focusing on soccer. With a combination of 4 years of NCAA D2 soccer at Molloy College and 2 years playing semi pro in Super-Y league, I have a strong player/coach background for the beautiful game. After having hip surgery and being exposed to the world of PT I fell in love immediately and decided to pursue the career immediately. I love what I do, meeting new people of all cultures and backgrounds everyday. Getting my patients back doing the activities they love is my true passion whether that is returning to playing a full 90 minutes of soccer, pitching a 9 inning shutout, or golfing with friends on the weekend.

Certifications

Clinical Interest

  • Physical Therapy
  • Sports-related injuries

Bio

Unfortunately like many of my colleagues a history of athletic injuries exposed me to the clinical practices of both athletic trainers, strength and conditioning coach's, and physical therapists. This ignited the spark which guided me to becoming a clinician in orthopedic healthcare. After receiving my Bachelors degree from Quinnipiac University and becoming a licensed athletic trainer and receiving my C.S.C.S , I became part of the Professional Physical Therapy team. I began my journey with a group professionals that provided me with a clinical experience that is unprecedented. Whether it was treating alongside Timothy Mauro and his expertise in post-operative Hip Labral repairs or Robert Panariello with his experience in ACL-rehabilitation to just list a couple of the many that influenced me over the years. All of these mentors expanded my knowledge and progressed my understanding of how to approach patient care.The next big step in my career was completing my DPT at NYIT where I expanded my knowledge even further with a focus on manual therapies and clinical evaluation skills. I look to continue to build my clinical knowledge and help as many patients as I can achieve their goals.

Clinical Interest

  • Physical Therapy

Bio

I have always been an active individual, playing organized sports all year long and spending as much time outside with friends as possible. At an early age I knew I would need a job that kept me moving. After taking a human anatomy course in high school I became overwhelmingly interested in learning more about the wonders of the human body. This drive to understand how the body functions and my passion for an active lifestyle led me to the physical therapy field. Having experienced many sports injuries over the years opened my eyes to the profound need for physical therapy not only in the sports world but in everyday life as well. I made it my mission to attain my doctoral degree in physical therapy in order to help as many people as I can to live a more active and happier life. In my time at The University of Scranton I learned and adopted the approach of addressing the whole person, not just the injury, in order to optimize patient care. I continue to utilize this approach as a physical therapist through active listening in order to gain a full picture of each patient's situation so that I can combine evidence-based rehabilitation practices with personal factors and goals to tailor my care to the individual.

Clinical Interest

  • Physical Therapy

  • Post Operation
  • Sports Rehab (specialized in power lifting)

Bio

As a lot of my colleagues my interest in physical therapy started when I was a high school athlete and I hurt my knee in back to back lacrosse seasons that kept from from competing. During undergrad at SUNY Brockport I was a funding member of the barbell club there where I helped people better themselves with one of my passions of powerlifting. I was a strength coach intern during my time at SUNY Brockport and getting to work with all the athletes furthered my passion of working with people that are passionate about what ever sport they hold close to their heart. During my time in PT school at Stony Brook I was fortunate to get to continue to be able to work with high level athletes and getting to learn directly under industry experts such as Mike Reinold, Lenny Macrina, Dave Tilley, Dan Pope and many others. I am still actively training and competing in the 220 pound weight class multiply division of powerlifting and hope to set the world record in that weight class in the near future.
