Super chill and friendly staff here at Professional PT @ Glendale. From Ashley at the door to Frankie and Tommy working inside (and Marco). Everyone is helpful and knowledgable.. helping me get back on my feet from an ankle sprain.

One of the best Physical Therapist I’ve been too. Mr. Chang is very knowledgeable about placement of muscles, trigger points and routine exercises. His compassion and understanding of physical disability are a tribute to his personality. Patient Care is met through the door with a smile from Ashley... who is very accommodating to appointment times and her kind sensibility. Highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy.read more

Summary: compassionate and competent staff, spotless facility, accessible location, and excellent service.Thomas and Kai are very knowledgeable, competent, and overall a joy to work with. I came to Professional Physical Therapy after needing relatively major knee surgery that involved the cutting... and repositioning of bone, ligament, and cartilage. It was my first-ever surgery, and the recovery was probably the most frustrating time of my life. It’s safe to say I was extremely anxious and not at all an easygoing patient! But Kai and Thomas were observant and patient. They helped me negotiate my anxiety and perform the necessary exercises, both at home and in the practice, to get on the right path to recovery.In addition to the wonderful PTs, the whole staff here is helpful and friendly. The facility is spotlessly clean and the equipment is extremely modern. The practice is conveniently located in a shopping complex on Union Turnpike that has abundant free parking and many other useful stores.read more

I have been going here for almost a year and I would like to thank the entire staff. You got Tommy, Frankie, Oliver, Chris and let's not forget the one who books my appointments Ashley. They work together as a solid team even during covid 19 when staff was cut the work was passed on threw each... member and I can't say that one is better than the other because the performance was the same all round for every member. They have all treated me and every other person like family. Ashley had to buckle down as a receptionist and a helper to bring all the materials to every patients so that things could run smoothly. They all make sure that the tables, machines and equipment was thoroughly clean and scanned all patients entering the facility, No exceptions, i got sent home. So if your looking for a safe, clean and friendly place to get your PT and your in the neighborhood come here. I'm sure that the service shouldn't be any different at any other location as well. Hopefully I don't injure my self again but if the time comes, I'm going to Professional Pt.read more

I had An Amazing first day of Physical therapy, not only was my therapist understanding and helpful, but went the extra mile to make me feel more comfortable. On the other hand the front desk Receptionist was very sweet and understanding and not only did she help me set up great appointments but... rather helped set them up to my schedule! I couldn’t be more happy and comfortable and willing to come and say to myself “let’s do this”. Thank you to Ashley and Oliver because there is no “i” in Team.read more

Tommy was my physical therapist. Such a great guy and a really good physical therapist. The rest of the staff were amazing people and without them, I probably wouldn’t be playing basketball anymore. They really helped me get back up on my feet and get back on the court. Right now I don’t have a... fear of playing basketball anymore because of how they helped me. 10/10 recommended.read more
