I never regret making my way to this place while in pain. I keep wanting to stay home when there’s pain but so far coming here has only helped me speed up the recovery process!I came in for various leg issues. David and everyone here has been so wonderful and helpful in speeding up my recovery... process. My body responds well to the exercises recommended and I leave feeling really good. They are very attentive and highly competent. Wonderful atmosphere and energy here as well. This place is inside Equinox which also has super friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommend this team!read more

I first met David Chen @ Professional PT in 2019 when I was experiencing pain in my left leg/hip from what I had initially attributed to a racquetball injury...Although my PT sessions with David, & the home exercises that he taught me, definitely helped me at the time, David suggested that I have... xrays taken, as well...A few weeks later, I was shocked when I was told ther my xrays revealed several bone spurs...& "bone on bone arthritis" in my left hip! I learned that an anterior hip replacement was needed asap, however, this realization coincided with the start of the pandemic;my surgery was delayed by (1) 1/2 years...Throughout this painful "waiting period",David Chen encouraged me, via email, to continue doing my exercises & stretches until surgery was possible..He also reassured me that, despite my concerns re: this very invasive surgery, he knew that I could do it!He encouraged me every step of the way!He reminded me that he'd be there to help me with PT afterwards, & that I "wouldn't be alone during the rehab process..."David Chen's encouragement definitely helped me to find the courage to have my hip surgery this summer...& David's kindness & expertise helped me to "come through it with flying colors "!!My goal was to play racquetball with my husband again, which I hadn't been able to do for several years b/c of my pain...I'm thrilled to share that 10 weeks after my surgery, with the TLC & encouragement of David Chen,I was on the court again playing racquetball!I definitely wasn't setting any speed records, but I was playing the game again! It's difficult to express the sense of accomplishment & joy that I felt that first day...,& all of the days since that I've been able to lead an active, pain-free life again!! 😊I truly can't thank David Chen & the entire team @ Professional PT @Paramus for all of their love & support! I highly recommend that anyone in need of PT care contact their office asap so that, they too, can experience the incredible treatment that I received while in their care. I will be forever grateful...🙏Most sincerely,Tierney Barkerread more

David has been very helpful to me after my rotator cuff surgery. He has a positive attitude and has the ability to make you feel comfortable and safe in his care. I have made great progress in my ability to move my arm and shoulder even my surgeon was impressed.

I have been going to PT for my shoulder here for about two months now and honestly, I look forward to my appointments. My therapist, David, is very knowledgeable, polite, friendly and professional. I am blanking on the receptionists name but she is just as wonderful as David. They make the... environment very comfortable and fun, I couldn’t be happier with the services they provide. I would highly recommend this location, however I have also had wonderful experiences at the Nutley location as well. I think it’s safe to say that this company is a great company to support.read more
