I am Theresa Hoyt, a client of your facility who has recently ended her therapy. My therapist was Lauren Pondelick and I wish to express my appreciation for her work. She is a very dedicated and excellent therapist! I observed her working with other clients and received, myself, the benefits of... her excellent skills! Her warm personality made each session pleasant as well as fruitful! Tim was a very fortunate student to be under her tutelage.read more

I came here post shoulder surgery and I could not be more pleased with results. Mike Camacho is by far the best physical therapist I’ve ever had. He’s extremely friendly, personable and the man knows what he’s doing. The whole staff at Professional PT was extremely warm and friendly and I highly... recommend this to anybody that needs PT!!!read more

Excellent clinic, the best treatment I ever got. I experienced consistent improvement from session to session, and every person I worked with—Lauren, Michael, Maria, Christine—was equally considerate, as well as professional. That is, unfortunately, too unusual. Everyone in the team also worked... together well, and was always very encouraging to one another, from what I observed. If they weren’t so good at what they do, they could moonlight as consultants on how to improve toxic workplaces! I would recommend this place to absolutely anyone. Who knew that rehab could actually be fun?read more

Mike is a fantastic physical therapist. Over the course of 6 weeks he and his assistant Maria helped me strengthen my back and work on my posture. This clinic really cares about improving their patients issues and they constantly go above and beyond to prove that. I enjoyed my evening sessions here... and am happy to report that my back is feeling so much better. Thank you Professional Physical Therapy!read more

I would highly recommend this location for anyone in the need for PT. The front desk staff is incredibly friendly, attentive, helpful, and communicative. They will go out of their way to help you. The physical therapists are spectacular. They work with you to develop a treatment plan that... challenges you every time you come in. They are more than happy to answer any questions, and make recommendations. They value physical health as much as emotional/mental health. Specifically Mike, is a phenomenal physical therapist and is so knowledgeable on how to help his patients. Look no further! This is the best PT office out there! Coming to PT feels like coming home, because it’s comfortable and filled with a community of people who care about you no matter what. They work exceptionally hard at this location to help everyone! They def deserve a pay raise for how hard they work.read more

My experience here has been exceptional. From the moment I walk in, I am greeted immediately by the front desk who are extremely pleasant. All I can say is my two therapists, Chaz (OT) and Christine (PT) have been outstanding. They are just as committed as I am for a full recovery after a serious... accident. They understand and listen that this is important to me, and are consistently upbeat and positive. The facility is very clean and well equipped. I highly recommend choosing this location!read more

I was really nervous about getting PT in general but the staff here was so professional, encouraging, and nice. Mike in particular was so thorough in his treatment and follow ups, and took a lot of time to listen to me, watch and correct my form, and model and explain both the exercises and... treatment. Highly recommend both Mike and this facility in general!read more

Very good professional establishment. The entire staff is very good at their craft. I always felt confident I was in good hands. Mike Camacho is very attentive to what is best.

When you walk into this facility you are created with an authentic warm hello. Then when your physical therapist gets close to you he (or she) will quietly inquire, "how are you feeling," asking you, really to take account of your injury's condition. It makes you think and encourages you to... honestly report the status of the progression of your healing. Mike and his staff obviously want you to improve and graduate, as they call it, with your body in the best form possible.But this is only the tip of the iceberg, as it were. There is so much care here that you will find it among the best in the country. I should know, I had my surgery done at the Mayo Clinics in Rochester, Minnesota and I know good care when I see it. There is so much more to say to say about what you get here. It's thinking outside the box. It's the best therapy you will find.read more

Mike C helped me work through strategies and therapy treatments to help me get rid of 20+ years of chronic migraines and headaches from my neck and it's been the first time since I was a kid not going through the day experiencing some level of pain or discomfort. So excited to continue the plan he... laid out so I'm set for the future. Thanks PPT for everything!!read more

I was a patient here for my bilateral knee pain for 7 weeks and the treatment I received here was excellent. I feel little-no pain in doing my normal activities and feel stronger. All the therapists here were welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Would recommend to anyone who needs physical therapy!

I can’t begin to express how great Mike and the whole crew is!! If it wasn’t for them I don’t think I would have had the progression I have had in the 6 months after major surgery. They were there to support me through every step of my journey. I wish the relationship we have built together doesn’t... have to end but everyone needs to graduate. The facility is always clean and sanitized and I never once feared during the Covid pandemic that I would have to worry about being sick on top of being broken. I truly wish I could give more than five stars for hands-down performance. To the crew and especially Mike thank you for keeping me on my highs and pulling me up on my Lows!!!! I would never wish an injury on anyone but if you need a amazing physical therapist Mike’s your Guy and professional physical therapy will be there for you!read more

Mike Camacho PT, DPT, OCS is THE Healing Master. His spiritual and physical approaches toward therapy has taught me to understand that perfection is one step away from greater perfection. Thank you Mike!I am also fortunate to have Lindsay Tobey OTR/L as my talented occupational therapist. She... does an excellent job creating a program that is tailored to fit my specific needs. My case comes with the challenge to expect the unexpected. Lindsey never misses a beat. Within an instant she adds an exercise that treats my new symptom. I am thankful for Lindsay!The entire team is amazing! Each therapist, assistant and administrator are a cut above the rest. They welcome patients with smiles and positive vibes! I am grateful for each of them, with individual appreciation. I feel truly blessed.read more

I wanted to avoid surgery for tears in both rotator cuffs.  I considered plasma-rich platelet or stem-cell treatments, but my shoulder surgeon suggested that I first try physical therapy.  He recommended by name Michael Camacho at Professional Therapy . Michael specializes in shoulder PT. He used... a combination of palpation (trigger-point therapy) plus creative ROM and strengthening exercises. During my 2 ½ months of PT, I went from almost constant pain to complete pain-free functionality. I’ve had PT for knee surgeries and prior shoulder surgery. Michael is in a league by himself -- the most amazing PT guy I've seen.read more

I was in pain and could hardly walk, stand or sit for a long period of time. After working with Tido and learning how to correct my posture, I have been feeling 100% better. I am thankful for all the staff at Professional Physical Therapy in Hackensack. They were very professional and friendly.

After my injury, I could barely walk. I hobbled into PT on the first day in pain and very frustrated. Now, after working with Tido, I am almost back to 100%. It’s amazing! It was wonderful working with him. He was attentive, knowledgeable, personable, and made me feel comfortable during our... sessions. I cannot be happier with my progress or with my physical therapist. The entire staff here is just great.read more

Bio

Dr. Christine Lew has been practicing physical therapy since September 2019 after graduating from Rutgers University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. She first became interested in pursuing it as a career when she was in high school and saw her dad getting physical therapy (PT) after straining his hamstring during a softball game. She loved the positive environment and the endless support that her dad received from his therapist. In addition, Christine valued the importance of staying active throughout her childhood years being involved in gymnastics, swimming, and pole vaulting. After graduating high school, Christine attended Stony Brook University on Long Island, where she volunteered at various PT practices, with one of them being at a research lab that focused on gait training with patients who experienced a spinal cord injury. Additionally, she became a teacher’s assistant for a Medical Terminology course, was part of a cultural ballroom dance team, and volunteered with Students Helping Honduras to help build schools in impoverished villages in Honduras. Christine graduated with her Bachelor’s of Science and went on to pursue her DPT at Rutgers University. During her clinical internships, she worked in acute care, outpatient, and subacute settings, in addition to providing lymphedema therapy with a Certified Lymphedema Specialist and providing aquatic therapy in a therapeutic pool. As a student, she also provided pro-bono PT evaluations and treatments to people within the Newark community while being supervised by a licensed physical therapist. After graduating with her DPT degree, Christine worked at a small, family owned PT practice in Lyndhurst where she became the head PT at her location and provided guidance to a newly graduated PT and other staff members. Currently, she works with a variety of orthopedic, post-surgical, and neuro patients for varying age groups with Professional Physical Therapy in Hackensack, in addition to providing some homecare PT. In her free time, she loves to hike, travel, do photography, and try new food.
