Richard L.
I highly recommend Professional PT to anyone who wants to be treated by the best Physical Therapists around. Dr. Lombardo is amazing and makes PT bearable. The entire staff are highly skilled and whoever you chose you are in great hands.

I worked with Jocelyn for about 6wks for my piriformis syndrome. She was fantastic, as measured by the fact that i’m now running, biking, and swimming again without pain. Highly recommend. What I really liked was she asked if the stretches worked for me…and then changed one when I said one of them... wasn’t doing much. Just a touch of patient-centricness, but it made an impact.read more

Paula G.
Today was my first day seeing Jocelyn Jasper. I usually come on a different day. She was fabulous. She was very attentive to me. She watched as I did each exercise....correcting along the way. I was hesitant about seeing another therapist but I am so happy with my treatment and care today. I... totally recommend this site. Thanks Jocelyn.read more

The staff is friendly and helpful. I came from a Foot injury and my experience there has been so supportive and accommodating. They challenged me to grow and you get more than just a workout, it’s a life experience. PT Nicole has been A LIFE SAVOR, she goes above and beyond what her job entails,... she listens, shares advice, pushes the limits where your comfortable going and overall a partner in the journey of healing.read more

I went to this office because I have been dealing with lower back pain for years. Antonio has worked on me and I feel like a new person! Everyone should come and experience the best and that's what you will receive at PPT. This office has helped me in the best possible way. Thank you Antonio.
Christi S.
ProPT in Hewlett is an great place that I would recommend both friends and family! It’s clean, very professional and the staff is great. Dr. Antonio Lombardo is the best physical therapist by far. He treats all his patients like family! He did wonders to my ankle and I feel like myself again. If... you need any type of PT, ProPT with Dr. Lombardo is the place to be!read more

I've been using PPT over many years for different physical problems and have come out of all those challenges in far better shape. I highly recommend them!!!
Sheri S.
This was my first experience being in physical therapy and Professional was highly recommended by my orthopedist. I can’t say enough good things about the Hewlett location. Dr. Lombardo made my road to recovery an excellent experience which I will continue now on my own. The staff are attentive,... extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they do and because of Professional I can move forward pain free. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!read more

They create an atmosphere of relaxed comfort, respect, and security; affording the patient with understanding and trust, for their injuries and desire to recover.... They listen to their patients’ concerns and symptoms with great attention and true zealI have other Professional PT offices closer to my house, but am happy to drive the additional distance for this great group of caring professionals. This is THE place to go for your Physical Therapy needs.read more
Jonathan K.
Great people, and very professional (but not in a stuck up sort of way)
C G Green S.
I was not a believer of physical therapy before giving Hewlett PT a chance. Hewlett Professional PT and therapist Anthony Lombardo was definitely an opinion changer.
Harry K.
A most professional and caring staff.
Nancy M.
Very clean facility to do your physical therapy. Everyone who works there are very professional and very nice. What I like the most is when the therapists set you up with your PT exercise regimen they actually watch you to make sure you are doing the exercise correctly so you get the maximum ... benefit.Gavin the head therapist does an excellent job and makes you feel very welcome and answers all your questions. My PT experience at Professional Physical Theapy has been a very positive experience thus far.read more
Linda F.
I had hand therapy initially with Grace and then Rich. Both therapists were pleasant and very professional. Upon arrival my temperature was checked each time before I went to the hand therapy area. I was always taken immediately, no waiting at all. The therapist took my prescription, examined my... hand and decide what therapy I needed to regain my strength, which I did. The building has a parking lot adjacent so parking is no problem. While I was there, no politics were on the tv, nobody’s opinions or views or news which was very pleasant given the current climate of our worldI would use them again.read more
Caryn W.
This is my second time in recovery for knee replacement surgery. I was so happy with the care I received at PPT the last time I knew I would return, and I'm glad I did. Professional, friendly staff, comfortable and clean space with all the necessary equipment. Given the current situation, the staff... ensures good social distancing, provides masks if needed, and is always cleaning the tables, towels, and shared equipment. Highly recommend.read more
