Hear From Our Patients

Keith M.
Dan is great and very Professional. He’s very knowledgeable and has helped me out a lot with my physical therapy
john S.
Dan was, as usual, very professional, organized, informative, and knowledgeable as to the therapy I needed after undergoing lower lumbar back surgery to relieve severe spinal stenosis.
Kathi C.
The therapist and staff are very supportive and have taken excellent care of my recent therapeutic needs. Keeping your mind off the pain and willing to make sure your working towards your goal…
Wayne M.
As the name says PROFESSIONAL. I am using this facility now for the 2nd time. Always feel I get quality attention and always a pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommend here for any of your Physical Therapy needs.
Judi S.
My experience has always been positive and would not hesitate for a second to recommend Professional Physical Therapy to anyone in need of PT. They are always ready for you when you arrive, they don’t have more than 2 clients at one time. They keep things moving, and I’ve never felt that I had... to wait because Dan or Lauren had another client at the same time. The space is clean, the staff friendly and accommodating. My mobility has greatly improved as a result of their exercise program. I especially like that they don’t just assign exercises and do try to determine triggers so they can be more
Cathie R.
A great experience from start to finish. I have been treated with compassion and empathy. My therapist is encouraging and supportive and the best part is I’m seeing progress in a short amount of time. It is a necessary part of healing and I appreciate their positive approach and attitude!
Shelley B.
These people are EXCELLENT!! Kind, engaged, intelligent and fun. I highly recommend them.
Laurie W.
I went to Professional Physical Therapy after hurting my low back. I had my appointment with Dan, and honestly can say he is one of the best Therapists I've been to. He really takes his time and explains everything so you can understand how the stretches and exercises help. I always feel so... much better after a visit. Along with his knowledge of Physical Therapy, he keeps things interesting with his funny stories and interesting history facts! Lauren, who is the other Therapist is also great. You will be happy with either Lauren or Dan! Everyone that works there, right down to the Aids, Rachel, Amanda and Justine are super kind and helpful! I wouldn't go anywhere else!!!read more
Nathalie M.
Physical Therapy with Dr. Rhoades and Mr. Walsh has been an amazing experience because they care so much about their patients and their patient's needs. They are both extremely knowledgeable and don't mind spending the time explaining to you about the physiological/anatomical side of the various... exercises they make you do to get better. In fact, after only a couple of weeks of physical therapy 3 times a week, I have improved so much and have more mobility than after one year of seeking only trigger point treatment, etc. I wished I had started with them sooner. Dr. Rhoades and Mr. Walsh have created a very relaxing atmosphere and you know when you go there, you will walk out more relieved from your pain. Laurie is great and very caring, too. She is very efficient and gets right on top of the paperwork required from insurances, calls you up to let you know what is going on, offers to make future appointments with you, etc. I did go somewhere else before coming to see them and the secretaries would forget to send the scripts for MRI's etc. or they would forget to fill the paperwork and you couldn't get physical therapy until they had completed their side of it. In conclusion, this is the only place you will want to go to get more
Ann J.
Dan and Lauren are very knowledgeable and friendly physical therapists. Lauri at the front desk is cheerful and very helpful. My therapy sessions were mostly with Dan Walsh who always treated me with respect and courtesy. Dan has always answered all of my questions and concerns. He set up an... exercise program for me to do at home to strengthen my back and hip. My pain has subsided considerably, and I am confident that I am on the right path to reaching my pain free goal. I highly recommend Professional Physical more
Adrienne O.
I was a former patient for a different problem, and didn’t hesitate to return when PT was prescribed by my doctor. At the first visit, Dan showed me a model so I could better understand my problem. Both he and Lauren showed could explain what the pain was I was experiencing, and why. The... exercises given are explained, and the repetitions start out at a lower number. I was also frequently asked if I was ok while doing the exercises and while having any hands on treatment. Both Dan and Lauren are professional and knowledgeable, yet pleasant and friendly. The environment is bright and very clean. I witnessed the sterile procedures they follow after a patient has used any equipment. I also like that the therapists send an email with links to exercises to do at home. I have greatly increased my range of motion after just 11 sessions. I highly recommend these qualified, pleasant physical more
Barbara F.
If anyone is in need of PT this is the place to go! The staff is friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable! Results of the patient’s efforts are always their rewards. Great place to go if you have to have PT
Kevin W.
Great place to go for your physical therapy. Great staff and clean facility.
D H.
The therapists and staff work well together and do a great job. The environment they create is pleasant and comfortable. Most importantly, my knee got better and is doing great! I highly recommend PPT
Suzen M.
I chose Professional Physical Therapy in Newton, NJ. at the suggestion of my husband who had a very positive experience with PPT some years ago. I found my very experienced therapist, Dan Walsh, to be extremely knowledgeable, attentive and professional. The entire staff was patient friendly... and most accommodating. I actually looked forward to my appointments always feeling stronger after my session. If you every find a need for PT, I highly recommend choosing Professional Physical Therapy - A+ in patient care!read more
Linda D.
Great experience of 4 months rehab after pelvic injury from skiing accident. Lauren and Dan are excellent therapists, who really care about each patient. A small practice with lots of individual attention .
Bob B.
I have used Professional Physical Therapy twice. In 2020 for a hurt shoulder and in 2021 for very painful lower back. Lauren worked on my shoulder and Dan worked on my back. In both cases after coming for the prescribed six weeks or so, I left completely pain free. All the therapists are... professional and friendly. As is Laurie at the front desk. I highly recommend this PT more
Crystal C.
Professional physical therapy is accommodating and helped me recover from my shoulder injury. Lauren is the best and the people who work there are so a family.
Jess T.
Very knowledgeable and kind. Always accommodating. Lauren diagnosed and treated a herniated disc in my spine before other doctors picked up on it. They will listen to your concerns and meet you where you are at. And you can always call in if you’re having a bad day to get a suggestion for pain.... Love them and have gone back multiple times for different injuries I have sustained over the years. Front desk is also great helping you work with more
Charlene B.
This was the best experience that I have ever had. Lauren, Dan, lauri and the 2 beautiful assistants were supportive, helpful and they create a wonderful environment to mend and become strong again. They are the best! I highly recommend this location. I will be utilizing them again. So come on and... try them out you won't be disappointed!read more
Michael M.
Great spot for PT. Dan and Lauren are both incredibly knowledgeable. My recovery would not have been the same without them. They pushed me when I needed to push it, and they urged patience when I was trying to advance too quickly. They were also readily available via email when I had questions for... them, and the facility was clean and the covid protocols kept everyone safe. Couldn’t recommend more more
Art S.
My experience with Professional PT could not have been better! Years ago I went to a different facility and found it to be a complete waste of time. My treatments at Professional PT completely changed my mind about physical therapy. Dan is an outstanding therapist! His dedication and commitment... to getting me the mobility i needed was amazing! At Professional PT, you're not just a patient but someone they truly care about. The staff is extremely courteous, kind and professional. I highly recommend Professional PT to anyone in need of quality physical more
donald h de long I.

Rich R.

John D.
The entire staff is super friendly. They take the time to get to know about my ailments and explain in detail how they will correct. I'm very happy that I found such an outstanding facility!
Fran P.
Professional Therapy is the first therapeutic establishment that I've been to (for various problems) where the attention that I need is given to me. The atmosphere here is pleasant and positive and the therapists are excellent.It's the only place that I trust.
Liz W.
Very professional and the PTs are great!

Bob B.
The therapists are knowledgeable and friendly. Most importantly, the pain in my shoulder has been decreasing daily as a result of the stretching and strengthening exercises I've learned, plus the incredible shoulder massage.
Carol C.
Lauren and her team are doing an amazing job helping me recover from a knee injury. I began to see reduction in pain and improvement in function after only two visits. They give personalized care and attention to the exercises you need to do. I have been to other physical therapy places where once... you are given your exercises, you are turned loose to go through the regimen on your own with no supervision. This is not the case in this small, but well run more
laura C.
After googling PT options, I chose Lauren because of her credentials, and the intimate atmosphere from which she works. I've previously experienced PT in places that felt like a gym membership with lots of techs ,and little to do with the therapist. This will also sound unbelievable, but the... chronic pain in my hip, that I had for months, was immediately alleviated by being readjusted. I highly recommend PPT in more
