Hear From Our Patients

Jocelyn A.
Yas and Bri were absolutely amazing for my 8yr old princess who broke her elbow in July and was prescribed PT starting end of august. Kaiya grew confidence and strength in her arm again very quickly. With Bri’s motherly instincts of nurturing and Yas’ sweet but direct approach combination,... professional PT really helped to distract my girl through her plethora of moods dealing with her sever injury to quick recovery. Within 6wks she was fully cleared by her orthopedic to start back with gymnastics and cheer! We kept working 2x a week to build full mobility and 6wks later she was cleared with full mobility and strength! If we are ever in need of PT again, we will absolutely be back!read more

Bri has been amazing rehabbing both of my sons who suffered injuries during athletics. She worked out the best treatment plans for their differing needs and got them back on the court! I would HIGHLY recommend Professional PT!

Kevin and Danielle do a great job making people feel comfortable and welcomed the moment you walk in. They helped me immensely with the strengthening of my back and in educating me on what I need to do to ward off a sciatica issue that I have. I recommend them highly.

Kevin and his staff are very committed to making sure their clients attain their goals. They worked with me to strengthen my shoulder and to restore its mobility. The therapists were very attentive and tweaked the excercises when they thought it would be helpful. In addition, everyone was very... friendly and made me feel very welcome. I highly recommend Somerset Family Physical more

Deborah G.
I went to SFPT for my shoulder. I was in a lot of pain , couldn’t move my arm and had trouble sleeping. The staff was so nice and helpful. When you walk in you’re greeted with a smile and a hello . The assistants Danielle and Raj were always there to help if you had any questions. Kevin was great ,... giving you encouragement and if you slacked off a nudge in the right direction. Kevin is friendly and has a great sense of humor . I actually looked forward to going to therapy and miss being there on Saturday mornings. I would 100% recommend SFPT .read more
