Every member of the staff is very professional. James was thorough in setting up my treatment plan and following up with me each time. The physical therapists provided excellent guidance concerning the exercises and activities to relieve my pain and strengthen my back. It was easy to do the... “homework” because you are given access to videos and print outs of the exercises. I highly recommend the team at Professional Physical Therapy.read more

This was my first time that I needed physical therapy. I hurt my shoulder and was told by my doctor that I would need an operation. I wanted to try physical therapy before any decisions were made. This facility is clean and the staff is top notch. I met Matt and he assured me he and the rest... of the staff would do all they could to help me get my shoulder working again. With Matt’s constant encouragement and the staff’s determination, I am happy to say that after two and a half months, surgery is not necessary. I cannot thank these caring therapists enough. If you ever need physical therapy, this is the place to go to. You won’t be disappointed.read more

My 11 year old son is an athlete and started having problems with his knee. Ended up with Osgood-schlatter and Jim has helped him rehab back after 2 weeks of appts. Jim is great and attentive and my son has enjoyed his sessions here. We will continue coming for a few more sessions just to make... sure he has become strong enough to get back to all of his sports. The front desk staff is very helpful.read more

James M., the physical therapists and the assistants at Professional Physical Therapy did outstanding work evaluating the conditions in my shoulder, neck and hip, setting realistic goals and preparing a personalized exercise program. I appreciate their attention to detail and emphasis on... communication and the teaching/learning process with the patient. Their breadth of experience and knowledge is apparent and they exhibit a high degree of professionalism and a caring attitude. They provided me with the motivation needed to exceed expectations and overcome certain functional limitations due to recent injury. In a world where it is difficult to find quality patient care or customer assistance, it is refreshing and inspiring to know that I can turn to James M. and the team at Professional Physical Therapy for excellent, quality care and instruction. At PPT, a patient learns how to be involved in the PT process and is given the tools to achieve one’s goals for rehabilitation. Thank you!read more

Professional PT is nothing less then like their name states “professional”. All the therapists are knowledgeable and they know what they are doing. Special shout out for Jim! With the initial evaluation they try to identify which muscles are causing the pain and which exercises can fix the pain.... And with the covid pandemic everyone is wearing masks, keeping up with cleaning and the facility checks temperature. Would highly recommend!read more

Jim is a very professional and knowledgeable therapist. He also teaches in colleges. His office is not the nearest one from my home, but I don’t mind driving a little longer.

Thanks a lot to Jim. He is very skilled, amazing and caring PT. I had back pain postpartum and being a PT myself, I approached Jim to help me out. I feel so good just after a few sessions. I love his mobilization skills as I could feel a lot of relief after that. I would recommend him to anybody... who is in need of PT.read more
