I had the best experience here for a back injury I have been dealing with. I primarily saw Jake, and I cannot recommend him enough! He really takes his time with each of his patients and genuinely cares about their progress. I saw an improvement in my symptoms within a month and am so grateful for... his help and support. The rest of the staff is also so friendly and I feel confident that I can always reach out to them if needed!read more

Dean did a super great job rehabbing my shoulder very quickly. He helped me regain a lot of strength and build a plan going forward based on the weaknesses he found. The whole clinic is super friendly — would recommend!
Anushri D.
The folks at Professional Physical Therapy are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I came in with a running injury and Jake, my PT, was able to get me back into running in a few months! The entire staff is very friendly and professional. Highly recommend!

Dean Linkroum is a fantastic therapist: he is super knowledgeable, and explains what is going on with my condition.

He is always looking to improve, adding new exercises and discovering more stuff that could... be helpful to me. Indefatigable!!!!read more
I would highly recommend this practice. I was so pleasantly surprised by how much better I felt after each session. I’ve seen all the therapists, Krina, Dean and Jake, and they were all so knowledgeable and professional, yet very pleasant and friendly. Krina was my primary PT and I’m very thankful... for her making my pain go away!read more

After my partial knee replacement, I did physical therapy three times a week with Krina. She was caring and encouraging, and provided excellent therapy. The other therapists and the receptionist were also very helpful. I highly recommend Krina and Professional Physical Therapy.
Liberty Olea Moya R.

Peter F.
After shoulder surgery, I spent about 5 months with Dean and his team at the Princeton location of Professional Physical Therapy. They took very good care of me, methodically working through range of motion and strength until I was back in action. Throughout the whole process, they were... consistently kind, cheerful, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend more
Matthew M
I was referred to Professional PT because of a slipped disc in my lower back. My therapist Krina Patel was so down to earth, friendly, and kind. Her treatment plan immediately made me feel more comfortable. During my sessions I never felt rushed. Krina was incredibly patient with me, listened to... all my concerns and was happy to answer any question at any time. I was very impressed by her knowledge and ability to explain things simply. She remained attentive and engaged throughout each session so she knew exactly when to increase my exercises. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. I'm actually stronger than I was before my injury!read more
Emma S.
The team at Professional Physical Therapy in Princeton was fantastic. Krina Patel in particular was just great. I went in with a long standing wrist injury that I had little hope would improve and was pleasantly surprised to make a full recovery! I attribute this success fully to Krina's expertise... and guidance. They are (indeed!) very professional, thoughtful and competent. I would enthusiastically recommend this practice (and specifically Krina) to anyone in need of physical more

I found all the staff at professional physical therapy in Princeton to be empathetic and knowledgable as I went through the physical therapy process. I especially appreciate the work of my physical therapist, Krina Patel who I saw during my visits and who helped me greatly
Margaret S.
I want to commend Professional Physical Therapy, Princeton (and Krina Patel in particular) for their care, professionalism, compassion, and hard work. I am a veteran of physical therapy with decades of knee problems, and Krina was among the very best in assessing the situation and coming up with... creative therapies to challenge me and remedy the problem. Despite her pushing me, I looked forward to our sessions. The facility was well cared for and their Covid protocols carefully followed. Appointments were easy to schedule or change if needed. I highly recommend Krina and Professional more
Krzysztof K.
It was my first time at a physical therapy place and I would definitely recommend this one to anyone. The staff is extremely caring and professional. They take time to talk to you, to figure out exactly what is bothering you and to guide you seamlessly through the whole process. The therapy helped... with my foot and I would definitely choose this place again if I have any other issues. Highly recommend!read more
Ted S.
just finished treatment for back and knee pain— krina was my primary therapist and i did a session or two with dean when she was on vacation. i would highly recommend both, and physical PT in general— everyone I talked to there was friendly and helpful.i’ve done PT 3 or 4 times previously for... other injuries and this was by far the best experience i’ve more
John W.
Professional PT is great. Simran is a really kind and helpful physical therapist yet also knew just how much to push me so that I kept growing in my recovery from a shoulder injury. And Ruby at the front desk and everyone else is so nice. It’s an open office, so other patients/physical therapists... can see you struggling through exercises sometimes, but that also adds to a collegial/collaborative more
Victoria L.
My mom had a great experience at the Professional PT in Princeton. The office is very clean and spacious. My mom’s therapist was Krina Patel who is very kind and caring. After the first visit my mom felt better. Krina is very knowledgeable, she patiently explained how to perform every exercise... correctly. After about two weeks doing stretching exercises along with massage, my mom’s headaches stopped. Thank you so much, Krina!read more
Sean T.
I saw Dean for about ~6 weeks at Professional PT to work on a torn bicep. They definitely know what they are doing there. I stuck to my exercises and stretches, visited the recommended number of times a week, and I was healed up in the projected time.The staff is very friendly, and the covid... protocol is great! Everyone wears masks, all equipment is constantly being wiped down with disinfectant, and the PT’s make sure to wash hands in between working on different patients.I hope I don’t injure myself again, but if I do, I will be coming back to professional PT!read more

I completed a 6 year program at the Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT where I earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2023 and Bachelor of Health Sciences in 2020. During my clinical experiences, I was able to gain extensive experience with individuals with orthopedic and neurological conditions in outpatient and hospital settings. In high school, my education in Anatomy and Sports Injuries, as well as my passion for volleyball, lead me to my first job as a PT aide. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages in helping optimize their function and achieve their goals. I find the variety in outpatient care exciting, and look forward to continued learning and growth in my career. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, playing volleyball, going to the beach, and trying new foods.
