Denise D.
Following my hand, accident and surgery, I needed PT. PPHT not only was able to fit me in the same day we contacted them, the entire staff was extremely friendly and kind. Kara, Sam, Jack (and the entire staff) made me feel comfortable, confident about my care and at ease. I’m so grateful to have... them putting me on the road too recoveryread more
James B.
I had an awesome eval with LJ Travaglia and crew. The facility is clean and has a lot of equipment. The treatment was extremely effective. Great place, highly recommend!
My OT was Kara, I required hand therapy and she is a Certified Hand therapist.. my experience was great with her. I changed therapist only because of the location of their office is to far for 3x week…But highly recommend Kara….Thank youTracy 😊
Grace S.
I can only say great things. It’s a wonderful environment to heal and learn. Suet, my CHT, was always professional, engaged, encouraging but realistic in terms of my care. The staff and aids were always helpful and attentive. I would highly recommend!
tony N.
This is my second time at Professional PT and both times have been great experiences. I previously was seen by Dee and most recently by Jake and they have both been so knowledgable and supportive of getting me back on track and identifying where my problems were. My injury is in my chest which can... be quite complex due to the size and interlocking muscles but thanks to them I've been able to get back to all of my hobbies and normal more
Ryan P.
Excellent experience in my recovery with Professional PT of Morristown. This office staff operates like a family - everyone is very welcoming /knowledgeable/ caring and attentive in your recovery process. Suet my OT specialist is highly attentive , organized and motivational in helping you achieve... milestones. Highly more
Alan S.
Suet is an excellent hand therapist. Very thorough! Takes no shortcuts. Very responsible and efficient. I had hand therapy at a different company a couple years ago, and the care was inferior to what I received at Professional Physical and Hand Therapy of Morristown. Suet and the entire staff are... amazing!read more
Robert K.
All of the therapist are incredibly experienced. They now how much to push you without stressing my injury. From a personal standpoint Suet, Kara and LJ are such nice and engaging people. Bottom line is I’m glad I’m graduating from PT and OT, but I will miss interacting with these nice people. They... have a great winning more
Mohsin K.
After requiring surgery I went to Professional PT to get regain strength. Suet was great from the first day I met her and was patient, supportive, and encouraging during my rehab. The entire staff was amazing and the environment is excellent and everyone is so friendly. I would highly recommend... this place for anyone needing more
Stephanie W.
I had a great experience in OT working with Mike at Professional Physical Therapy. He was very knowledgeable, and the staff there in general is very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend.
Frank D.
The therapist treating me is very professional, caring and concerned. She is so helpful in showing and explaining the various tasks I need to perform. She always remarks on my progress and is constantly encouraging me to do well.
Vincent C.
Excellent, professional approach to Physical Therapy. Kara is a true professional and has a no nonsense approach to getting you through the protocol. I highly recommend this group.
Elizabeth B.
I saw LJ and Dee for ~6 months due to unexplained hip pain. They not only helped bring me pain relief through their 1:1 work and exercises, but kept me positive when tests were inconclusive and went above and beyond to communicate with my doctor(s). Between the 4-5 of us, we came up with a game... plan to get me totally pain free and it worked! I was thrilled to finally "graduate" PT, but will also miss chatting with them and the staff multiple times a week. They are kind, caring, professional and make going to PT enjoyable instead of feeling like a burden. 10/10 would recommend to more
Colin W.
I went to Professional PT in Morristown based on a referral for PT for a significant knee issue. L.J. and Dee who serve as principal therapist are the ultimate tag team. I found them both very thorough in their evaluation, comprehensive in their recommended therapy approaches and support for... each of my visits. I visited 2-3 times per week over 6 weeks and the facility and equipment was easy to access and super helpful for my recovery. Strong more
Alyssa T.
I went to professional PT for a herniated disc and was in a ton of pain and discomfort. I live in Morristown and took a chance on them since it is so close to me, so it would be easy to get to and from my appointments. LJ and Dee were always so kind and compassionate, and took their time to ask how... I was doing and make sure they were doing whatever they could to support me, and ensure I was taking the right steps to getting better. The aides and office staff are also wonderful and always go above and beyond to help. Though I don’t want to need PT again, if I do I will 100% come back to more
Jennie J.
Dee and LDizzle are very nice and treat everyone well. I love this place
Cindy G.
I highly recommend PPT. Head Physical Therapist and Clinical Director, L.J. Travaglia, is highly skilled, personable, very dedicated and shares his PT knowledge openly with his clients. He always goes the extra mile. The team who work with him, including Yanette at the front desk, Shea and Meagan,... who assist with clients and also share their PT knowledge readily, are a friendly and great group of people to be around. I’ve also worked with Dee, who is excellent.I first came to PPT in 2017 when I was plagued with Achilles tendonitis in my right ankle as well as issues with my right shoulder. It took a while because it (the tendonitis) was a chronic problem, but L.J. got me on the path to healing. I still do the exercises on my own but I’m convinced the deep tissue manipulation did the trick, among the several modalities L.J. used, including ultrasound and STEM. Fast forward to Oct 2021– the same problem plagued my left ankle but is worse. I’ve been treated with similar modalities including exercise, hands-on manipulation, etc. It is a slow process but it is healing. Every time L.J. manipulates the Achilles and my excruciating tight left calf, it gets better. He is an excellent therapist, works incredibly hard as does his team.The facility is clean, spacious and has great equipment—everything you would expect from a PT facility. It also has an OT presence with therapists who specialize in hand therapy and probably more. I may need them someday for my trigger finger and Dupuytren’s contracture, but hopefully after the Achilles heals.I would add: To PPT management: I have observed how dedicated and hard L.J. works on behalf of his patients. He does that with a great sense of humor, passion for his work and commitment. A lot of clients (patients) want to use PPT. Be as protective of L.J. — as he is of his clients’ physical healing and more
Joss Nicholas D.
I blew up my knee playing basketball and had a fairly complicated surgery. These guys were incredible, pacing my recovery and getting me stronger so I could get back to regular activity and on the way back to sports soon. LJ is super knowledgable and a great coach, I would recommend him to anyone.
Naomi Q.
I have had a great experience with Professional Physical Therapy! All of the staff are kind and welcoming and don’t hesitate to help with anything needed. I have been working with Suet and have made so much progress due to the fact that she stays attentive and dedicated to helping me. I would... highly recommend them for anyone who needs physical therapy!read more
Antonio A.
I worked with LJ and Dee during my time at Professional Physical Therapy. I was recovering from an ACL tear that I suffered from playing soccer.Although the recovery process was difficult, Dee and LJ both pushed me to work hard towards a healthy recovery. I’m very thankful for the time and effort... they spent towards getting me back to good health.Both therapists were incredibly knowledgable and always provided extensive answers to all of my ACL recovery related questions. The entire staff was friendly and it made my time spent there that much more enjoyable.The location was always clean and tidy and there was enough equipment to assist with a multitude of recovery types. Sessions were lengthy and structured accordingly to account for the different phases of the recovery process. It was always easy to schedule and re-schedule sessions, and the flexibility of the training staff meant that they could work around my schedule.Here’s to hoping that I won’t need to ever go back, but I can definitely recommend PPT as a great place to assist in a healthy more
Susan L
Suet has been helpful and encouraging throughout my physical therapy process. She explains everything clearly and is very knowledgeable.I have found all of the staff at Professional Physical Therapy to be friendly and kind including the women at the front desk.
Michelle V.
Suet did a wonderful job with my fractured wrist. She is knowledgeable, energetic, warm and motivating. My surgeon was so pleased with my progress and quick recovery. I couldn’t recommend Suet and her support team more highly. Everyone at Professional PT in Morristown puts their patient’s needs... first — a warm and welcoming environment that produces first rate more
Edward O.
Most PTs I have seen feel like a car repair factory where the goal is to reassemble the parts quickly and get you out. LJ and Dee are 180 degrees different! They gave me thorough and highly individual care and attention over the course of healing my knee injury. Especially recommend for runners in... Morristown and anyone looking to address chronic pain from movement. They addressed the whole chain and gave me a better way to understand the causes of the problem. Thanks for bringing me back to life ProPt!read more
Margo S.
Extremely pleased with my experience. Everyone is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. I was treated by Kara following back to back carpal tunnel surgeries and she made my recovery an easy and positive experience.
Daisy P.
Understanding therapist with very good fund of knowledge. Supportive clinic.
Steven L
Very caring people.
Tracey D.
This place is THE best hands down. The therapists are super knowledgeable all while getting the job done. Suet Lim is as thorough as possible and can make a mean brace. Entire staff is very pleasant.
Jon C.
It is an absolute pleasure working with LJ and Dee! I suffered a devastating knee injury and under went 2 surgeries and an unsuccessful round of physical therapy with another PT group prior to working with LJ and Dee at Professional PT. My recovery regimen required me to attend PT 5 days a week,... and from day one they were both fully committed to my recovery and were extremely easy to work with. Though it was a tough injury to recover from I can honestly say LJ and Dee did incredible work and were very personable/professional throughout our time together. I am thrilled with my recovery and beyond grateful for the work they've done, LJ especially. The facility is clean, the staff is friendly, and scheduling is a breeze. I highly recommend using LJ and Dee for your Physical Therapy needs!read more
Rachael S.
Suet was wonderful with helping me recover from a hand injury. She was knowledgeable, professional and kind throughout my treatment. LJ also went above and beyond to help me get through a foot injury. They really cared about me as an individual. Thank you so much for your help!
Carla L.
L.J. (Head physical therapist) & his superbly trained staff, were so helpful to me after I broke my ankle. I went in to physical therapy with a walker & left on my own 2 feet. Thanks for your expertise; I’m better off for it. (Carla L).
