I had a total knee replacement and went to Professional Physical Therapy in Summit for PT.. Sami was my therapist. He was so caring and encouraging and I progressed very rapidly because of his care. I would highly recommend PPT and Sami.
Caroline A.
Everyone at Pro PT has given me unconditional support all through my ACL recovery. Spencer, Kayla and Sami have all helped me and given me everything I need to be physically and mentally strong. Totally recommend coming here if you need physical therapy!!
Carol Z.
Can't find enough positive adjectives to communicate my extreme satisfaction with the care I received at PPT in Summit. I've had physical therapy many time over the years after surgery, injury, etc. I have never had such positive results. Spencer, the manager, did my therapy and he was... amazing---knowledgeable, personable and effective. Everyone at this facility including the receptionists are welcoming!read more

Michelle V.
I had physical therapy for my back with Lisa. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and a pleasure to work with. Was able to see resolution of my issue without going beyond the initial prescription of my orthopedist. I also had some sessions with Spencer and Sami. Both were excellent as well. This is a... great facility for PT — everyone from the receptionist to aides and therapists give it their all to your improvement. Highly recommend!read more

I have had my PT with Sami, he is very professional and knowledgeable. I started at a different place and I could see the difference from the first day. I highly recommend all of them.
Lisa L.
I highly recommend PPT in Summit. Excellent results and service!
We started at another practice and I could instantly tell the difference. Spencer is a higher level of care and I’m so glad we found him. We have been very happy with not only the Physical Therapy, but also the nice, helpful front desk. They worked to get all my insurance coverage worked out and... went above and beyond to help eliminate headaches for me. I really appreciate it!read more

Clinical Interest

My father, a hospital administrator, introduced me to the Physical Therapy world when I was in high school. I knew that PT was the job for me because I was always interested in fitness, healthcare and helping others. After graduation, I worked at Lankenau Hospital in Philadelphia for 3 years and then re-located to NJ and accepted a job at Sports Training Physical Therapy in Livingston, working there for 24 years. Professional Physical Therapy acquired STPT in 2016 and I continue to work for Professional PT.

Clinical Interest

  • Physical Therapy


Growing up in a family filled with health care professionals helped me realize from an early age that I had a passion for helping people.
I was guided in the direction of pursuing physical therapy after having been in and out of PT multiple times throughout high school and
college for sports injuries and being inspired by how my therapist was able to make such a positive impact and long lasting changes in
my life. The opportunity to utilize my positive attitude and interest in sports, exercise, and movement in order to help someone return
to their prior level of function and the activities they love doing made this career a no brainer for me. I have been with this company
ever since I graduated from PT school and have seen a wide variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, post-operative, and sports injuries
in a diverse patient population since then. I love what I do and do my best to ensure that all of my patients have an amazing PT
