After about two months of therapy, I am now pain free, have my strength back and am doing all the hobbies and activities I enjoyed doing before my accident.

My name is Anna Pugliese and I've just experienced 8 weeks of great care in your facility. My physical therapist was Ryan Dishaw and I think he is one of the finest young men I've ever met. He is patient, kind and caring during each session. I am a 75 year old woman and I broke 2 bones in my... shoulder.Please know that you have a very special young man in your employ. I also want to compliment all of the other therapists and the ladies at the front desk. They all work together and help each other and are very kind to the patients.I hope you can let them know how special they are and how good they are at what they do. It's like a family experience.Thank You,Anna Puglieseread more

Bio

Growing up as a dancer, Melanie was always interested in how the body worked and moved. Throughout her years as we became more serious in ballet, she had a knee injury that sent her to PT. She was so moved by the Service provided and the ability to get her back dancing that this began her path to becoming a physical therapist. Melanie attended Frank Sinatra School of the Arts for dance for high school and there she studied kinesiology for a semester as part of the curriculum. After that semester, she solidified her love for understanding how the body moves and made her want to be a PT even more. Melanie attended Ithaca College for the 6 year combined undergrad and graduate DPT program and loved every second of the program. During school, Melanie served as an aide in the queens location of Professional PT. This is where she realized how great this company is. After graduation, Melanie started working for Professional PT and has been with the company every since.

I received my Masters in Occupational Therapy at Columbia University where I developed a passion for the specialty area of Hand Therapy. While spending the first years of my career at two major NYC Hospitals, I was able to gain experience with a vast patient population consisting of many different diagnoses. After five years of licensed practice and over 2,000 hours in direct patient contact in an outpatient hand therapy setting, I earned my advanced certification in hand therapy. I have continued to expand my knowledge through continued coursework and staying current with the latest evidence based practice techniques. I am very adept at custom splinting for both protection and treatment of upper extremity conditions. I began working with Professional Hand Therapy in 6/2018 and have since grown the Hand Therapy Practice in Westchester from the ground up and have spearheaded a clinical mentorship program for novice therapists to learn from their more experienced counterparts.
