Professional Physical Therapy is just great. My son used them in the past and got wonderful results so I decided to use them. Glenn and Jim makes a good team along with the other therapist John. I received prompt service upon arrival and no lag in the exercises. My knee was very painful and limited... my daily activities. After about 1 week I had significant improvement. Now that I’m finish I’ll continue these exercises at home. Thank you PPT!read more

John Catricala was my physical therapist at Professional Physical Therapy. He was so kind and knowledgeable. He understands the human body movements better than anyone I know. I had my knee replaced and John helped to strengthen it by breaking down the movements in small increments. Each session... was carefully planned out and would move me along by building upon each of these small steps. He very aware of what may cause difficulties and would offer alternate ways to be successful. He carefully watched all his patients and knew exactly what each patient needed. His warm and kind demeanor is perfect for this more
