Hear From Our Patients

Yolanda C.
great physical therapist Kevin, I’m back again for my knee after working on my shoulder prior. Every time he has helped with recovery. Eric and Venisse were very helpful, I appreciate them all.
Pam L.
I’m very happy that my friend recommended Kit at professional PT. She and the entire staff were socapable, friendly and caring. My shoulder improved immensely, more than I could have hoped for.I will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs PT
Honey W.
Eileen is just so kind! I broke my elbow and bones all the way to my wrist. She explained everything and looking forward to be able to use my left hand!!
Diane K.
Great physical Therapist and Assistants. Everyone in the facility is kind and caring. I’m getting excellent results!
Judith R.
When I was told to visit a physical therapist for my broken arm, I chose a practice with only one criteria, that it be located near my home. I really lucked out with Professional PT. The various PTAs and staff who treated me over the months were all wonderful: knowledgeable, pleasant, caring,... respectful. I've ended up working mostly with Franco the last few weeks, who is all those things and more. The facility is pleasant, too, with big sunny windows and the almost fun atmosphere of a gym. I am sorry (almost) to admit that I am basically "cured" and it will be time to move on soon.read more

I had two months of physical therapy here after collarbone repair surgery. My experience very positive.

My experience was excellent. I had a rotator cuff issue. Over a number of weeks I had at various times sessions with Will, Franco and Kevin.

The woman greeting and scheduling could not have been nicer. Excellent. Thanks.read more

While I’m happy to be done with physical therapy, I’ll definitely miss coming here every week.read more

This is a quick update. I had to go back to PT during COVID & had to add this to my review. I spent 3 months twice a week and they kept the place spotless. I never got sick and always felt safe. A special thanks to Patty. And... Stephanie at the reception desk is so kind. She’s always smiling.I... would highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy at 1 Greenwood Ave, Montclair, NJ. The facility is spotless & the entire staff is friendly. If you’re not sure about your benefits, Erica the office manager is very knowledgeable and is always eager to help. In addition, one of the things I love most is while trying to get better the entire facility is all windows and a loft like style with exposed pipes. It’s Very nice inside and you’re not In a basement with no windows.As far as my treatment, I didn’t think I’d ever get any relief but Travis is really helping me keep the pain at bay until surgery.Five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟for Professional PT~!read more

No pun intended.read more

Nice staff, fully equipped, and a friendly atmosphere.
Ellen K.
I have benefited from the care at Professional Physical Therapy on 2 different occasions, following 2 falls. I feel very lucky to have received this referral! I saw OT for a broken wrist, and PT for a leg issue and currently for neck problems. Therapists are professional, experienced and very... caring. Many have connections and are highly recommended by area physicians. I have received therapy from other local organizations and Professional is absolutely my first choice for treatment. In addition to therapists, support personnel, front office and those on the floor are outstanding and add to the overall outstanding rating!read more
Hildi H.
I have used this wonderful office several times over the years for different types of PT. The therapists and office staff genuinely seem to enjoy working together and they know their stuff. If you want to really understand what your problem is and how they are working to address it, they are... ready to give you all the details. Friendly, clean, safe, cheerful - it makes you feel hopeful to be working with these folks. And the results are excellent, especially if you follow up with the assigned exercises at home. I can't recommend more highly!read more
