Hear From Our Patients

Fantastic facility! Cordial and comfortable atmosphere. Nate is a fantastic DPT and so readily identified the cause of my upper thoracic sprain/strain that I went back to him a second time to work on my lumbar spine mobility. Linda is awesome as well - thank you!
Doug K.
Brian works tirelessly to solve physical issues. Explains in detail, not afraid to try innovative techniques.
Melissa M.
We are eternally grateful for the clinicians and staff at Professional Physical Therapy in Spring Lake, NJ! Ryan, Brian, Nate, and Linda have been instrumental in my daughter’s mental and physical health after a rugby injury with surgery delayed due to a blood clot. Professional PT was a game... changer, with PT being a saving grace while waiting 3 months for surgery. She is in such a better position post-op thanks to all their hard work and effort. They have also been incredibly kind and supportive, generally friendly and caring people, interested in her well-being. Professional PT has been a bright spot in an otherwise challenging situation. Thank you is not enough but we truly thank you!read more

I'm impressed with everyone that works at ProPT. Linda, the receptionist, greets you with a warm smile, and is courteous, helpful, and pleasant.Nate, my therapist is professional, thorough, knowledgeable, kind, and compassionate. I love being there, and I feel so much better after I leave. I... would definitely recommend ProPT. I've been having a very positive experience. They have a terrific more
Thomas B.
Absolutely the best of the best. I had a total knee replacement on 29 August 2023. In preparation for surgery I went to PPT for two months. They really did an incredible job getting me ready, both physically and mentally. From day one of the surgery I suffered NO pain. I was walking and climbing... stairs the first day. Now two weeks later I am enjoying long walks on the beach. I understand that not everyone will recover as quickly but my surgeon at HSS in NYC credited PPT for the properly strengthening the effected muscles and stretching the ligaments. Being there is truly a fun experience. They are an up beat motivational more

I started going to Nate Santos at PPT month 6 into ACL reconstruction recovery and the results have been through the roof. The tailor made for you workouts not only show the professional approach they use but also the understanding and care of every patient’s specific needs. The staff in its... entirety is tremendously welcoming and helpful and everyone there seems happy and satisfied with their progress. Super friendly and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to actually get back to full functionality and not just checking the boxes to get cleared. (P.S. I traveled 40 minutes each way to attend therapy and it was always worth it and always walked out feeling tangible and substantial progress)read more
Eileen H.
I have gone to PPT for rehab after a shoulder replacement and, now, a knee replacement. Everyone is pleasant and patient. I especially like that I could continue my original PT in Rutherford down in Spring Lake when I was at a vacation home over the summer! The home exercises on email also... helped me continue my rehabbing while on vacation and in between sessions. Thanks Joe H. in Rutherford and Nathan S. in Spring Lake for being so great!!read more

Professional Physical Therapy, Spring Lake, is run by Brian Bateris, Clinical Director. I couldn’t be more pleased with Brian and this facility. Over the years, I have gone to a number of PT locations, but this is far and away the best one I have used.
Michael A.
Brian Linda and Shawna are a great team!
Ray L.
Just finished two weeks of a six week course of therapy at the Spring Lake clinic. Experience was tremendous and I made more progress than I would have imagined. Shauna was my therapist and was excellent Her ability to spot weaknesses that I can correct was very astute. Every session was... productive and I always left feeling a bit tired but always accomplished. I’ll be 6 weeks from total knee replacement and am doing better than I would have figured. By observation, the other therapists at this site look solid too. Moving on to another Professional location closer to home and hope the quality will be as good as I have experienced in Spring more
Fred S.
Recommended by a friend in 2015 for PT after total knee replacement, total success. Returned 2017 for PT of lower back, total success. Returned 2021 after surgery, full tear rotator cuff, total success. Work hard and you'll have the same results. Entire staff is extremely helpful. Brian... Brateris, PT, DPT, CKTP specialist is the best, the man cares. Brian gives a lot, answered all my questions and builds confidence along with more

The facility is very clean and up to date. The staff was very knowledgeable and answered any questions that I had. I would recommend Professional Physical Therapy to anyone who is in need of a PT.
Sandy C.
Thanks to my surgeon at HSS and Brian Brateris at Professional PT, I'm back in the pool and doing everything I could do before a severed and retracted rotator cuff. Brian knew the right treatment and fully explained everything that was happening with this complicated joint, making for a strong... recovery. Hope I won't need to, but won't hesitate to more
