Yarden Z.
The PT team was excellent throughout my 9+ month recovery and return to sport physical therapy. The team, and specifically my PT James who manages this branch, were professional, supportive, informative, and patient. Highly recommend!
M & S B.
I am completely satisfied with my PT experience. Harshal, my therapist, was both extremely personable and highly professional. At 77 years old and with a lifelong underlying scoliosis, I thought that nothing could be done about the limited mobility in my left shoulder and I just had to accept it.... Harshal proved me otherwise. I surprised myself with what I was able to achieve in 3 months, under his care finely attuned to my needs and to my potential throughout the process. Thank you!read more
Donna G.
I have had various injuries (torn meniscus, torn toe ligament, tight hip joints) over the years and each time the professionals here have restored me to full functioning. This time Harshal helped me after a household toe injury and I'm back to running. The care is professional and attentive, and... the facility is clean and roomy. I feel lucky to have them in the neighborhood and on my insurance (they accept most ins).read more
Linda R.
I am very satisfied about my experience at Star Pro Physical Therapy at 2599 Broadway.. My pt is a real professional in the field. He is knowledgeable, organized, thoughtful and caring and listens to my concerns. The other pt’s on the therapy floor are aware of all the patients in general as... well as their assistants. Quite a team! I highly recommend Star Pro PT. Linda Rousseauread more
Linda S.
I came to StarPro after the first of two recent total knee replacements, and I'm so happy I did. From my first visit, I could tell that this clinic had a positive vibe, and that the staff really cared about their patients. James and John are excellent therapists; they made sure that while I... rehabbed from my first knee surgery I knew how to prep for the second, and then they got me firmly back on both feet after the second knee was done. All the while, they helped me progress and gain confidence with encouragement, good humor, and careful attention to where I was in my recovery journey. No question was too simple or too nerdy! I never thought recovering from surgery could be "fun," but everyone here is terrific, and they made the process smooth and enjoyable. You're in good hands more
Grant K.
Really great place! Had a major hip injury and Harshal helped me go from walking on a crutch to running within 4 months. Very easy to work with, especially regarding insurance!
alan L.
The folks are caring friendly and professional. The space is constantly kept clean. Nothing negative at all. I am well served.
Hortensia D.
I first visited Professional in June ‘22 because I needed to strengthen my right knee before complete knee replacement surgery.The staff at Professional were caring, and very understanding of my needs. Their encouragement and my improvement gave me confidence to achieve my goals.I am now on my... third visit after two complete knee replacement surgeries and doing very well. I am very lucky to have found Professional for my physical therapy. James and John are excellent therapists and allow their patients to do their routines without being pushy, encouragement and praise is their style. Even in pain, you know you are in good capable hands.Thank you both!After having experienced other physical therapy places I can truly recommend Professional Physical Therapy as being the more
Chen W.
I started having lower back pain a few months ago and a pain management doctor recommended professional PT to me. After an initial evaluation James started me on some simple exercises. Things went well until I suddenly had a flare-up a few weeks later out of the blue — James suggested I contact the... doctor again and get more imaging done. After an MRI that showed a disc protrusion, James quickly adjusted my exercise plan and I started responding to the revised plan immediately. I had my last session today and I walked out with minimal pain that I can now start managing myself with home exercises. Throughout the several months James and John were always really communicative, trying to listen to every concern I had, and the entire staff were just awesome (thanks Cheryl!). The place was also always filled with laughter; you can tell everyone on the team loves working there. Highly recommend!read more
Denise R.
Best physical therapy place hands down!! The entire staff is so helpful, kind, and friendly. I started with terrible lower back and posture problems and they helped me get back in shape and ready to continue on my own in the gym. I was always greeted so kindly by the front desk and always well... received John and James. On days where I didn’t work with either John or James, I had the pleasure of working with Drashti, Ian, or Sheryl. All were so wonderful!! Thank you for taking care of me!read more
Meesch L
Love this place. The therapy is very individualized and my trainer John really understand medical conditions and physiology. He also pays attention to how slow or fast my pace can be at each session. I am very grateful.James has to juggle between running the center and patients he is experienced,... warm, and extremely knowledgeable. He also adopted a rescue.! Many points in my book!Have to also pay homage to all the aides that are there to pitch in. They are more

I had hip surgery in early February 2022. Started PT here a month later and over the course of three months, returned to full mobility. The program grows gradually more difficult on purpose; so that you are challenged with new exercises each visit, allowing the "core" muscles of the body to unlearn... all the bad habits I had developed before surgery when I was trying to compensate for the pain I was in.I can now ride my bike, swim laps, and play softball.James Cascio deserves a special thank you but all of the PT staff were patient and pleasant to work with. Worth every bit of the $10 co-pay!read more
Katie D.
I came here to see Shoshana for some nerve pain and mobility issues in my neck. On the first day she worked her magic and I left without nerve pain for the first time in months! I now have full mobility in my neck, and I have been able to work on shoulder issues which have bothered me for years. I... have never felt so clearly listened to and had an effectively tailored program before. Although I was slightly sad to graduate from their care, I will always appreciate the time and attention from Shoshana and Abby and all of the staff. Shoshana also recommended a massage place that I love as well as a specialist I was looking for. I certainly recommend this location to anyone looking for true professionalism, caring, and kindnes,s as well as thorough knowledge and attention. Thanks again!read more
Claire L.
Emma M was my therapist. She is wonderful - attentive, kind, listens to your concerns and questions, modifies the recovery plan to accommodate your activities (in my case running). Great bedside manner too. I was always pleasantly surprised by how timely the staff is - I consistently chose the... earliest appointment time and never had to wait. In my 4 months of therapy only one time was there a schedule change and I received a call during business hours the day before from a manager. The receptionist is also very sweet and I was never overcharged with my insurance.I fully healed at Professional Physical Therapy despite a lot of anxieties surrounding my recovery. Emma was integral in getting me back on the ground running. Would recommend highly!!!read more
Michelle K.
Went here for arthritis in my knee. Emma was my PT with Adina as her assistant. They are both wonderful. They were comprehensive in care & explained everything. No questions went unanswered. The place itself is nothing special but it is tidy & clean with everything you need to complete your... exercises. I didn't have trouble getting flexible appointments. Overall a great more
Paula S.
This is a great place! I have used them twice for 2 different problems. Shoshana is terrific and made a big difference in my well being.
Natalie S.
I've been going to PT on and off for over 10 years, and the last two years have been with Shoshana at PPT. She is very knowledgeable and tough in a helpful way. I've seen a number of people come in on crutches and leave weeks later good as new. Thanks for everything!
Mary H.
James gives detailed focus to the specific issues I have with my hip flexor and my ankle. He creates the customized exercises that are needed, to improve the pain. I so appreciate both James and Adina for their attentive and personal care and professionalism. James keeps the ball rolling with... increasingly challenging exercises throughout the session. I cannot recommend James Cascio more
Joshua U.
James and Adina are absolutely fantastic. James is extremely knowledgeable, attentive to my personal needs, and knows my limits. I have little doubt that I would not be in the healthy, happy state I am without their dedication to my post-surgical recovery.
Kate B.
James and team are personable, professional and efficient. Highly recommend!
Lukas P.
I can’t possibly recommend this branch of Professional PT enough. I always felt welcome and cared for here.I worked with the clinical director, James, immediately following a hip surgery. James was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and consistent, while also gently pushing me to do slightly... better every time. He also gave advice that spoke to everyday practicalities of living with physical issues, rather than suggesting impossible commitments to at-home exercises. Every other employee I interacted with was kind, caring, and generous.Also important : every time I arrived early to my appointment, I was seen early, which showed me the level of respect they had for my time. Likewise, when I needed to leave early, I was always accommodated and never guilt-tripped.I would gladly return to this location for more PT in the future !read more
Arnold B.
I'm 72 years old. I tore my hamstring muscle completely off the bone. It was surgically repaired in July 2021. My surgeon ordered 6 months of PT. When I first came to Professional Physical Therapy I was just transitioning from a walker to a cane. James was absolutely fantastic. After 6 months I am... literally skipping and running. He gave me back my life. I am very more
Ted H.
I went in after developing some knee issues from running and biking. My physical therapist, James, worked with me over the course of a few weeks, teaching me exercises that have made me feel comfortable running again. Definitely recommend this place!
Gwen G.
James Cascio is the absolute best. Thank you for a really helpful PT experience!!!
Harvey S.
I've been very happy with the treatment I've received at Professional PT. James, Emma, Adina, and all the other people who worked with and "on" me there are experts at what they do and kind and easygoing in the way they assist. I highly recommend them!
Julie D.
All of the staff are professional and empathetic. The physical therapists are excellent. Shoshana Halpern DPT has solved my shoulder pain - magic hands! The PT aides (Adina and Abby) are very helpful and supportive. All of my sessions started exactly on time and scheduling appointments was easy. I... highly recommend Professional PT on Broadway and 98th St. In more
Catherine Homsey M.
Shoshanna was fantastic! I saw her for three months of treatment for whiplash after a minor car accident this summer. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable physical therapist! Thank you for getting me back to normal!
myra D.
I’m so happy I chose Professional Physical Therapist to help with my arthritic knee. Every aspect of my treatment there was professional, helpful and advanced me toward my goal of greater mobility and less pain. Special shout out to James and Adina for their attentive treatment. I am in much better... shape today than I was when I started, and I have them to more
Miguel A.
Great place. Very nice and courteous staff. They were also very accommodating to my scheduleShout out to Shoshana for teaching me all the exercises and making my time at professional PT great
Yvonne M.
I visited a few offices before deciding on this location and they did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in you get personal attention starting with the staff at reception, cheerfully answering any queries you might have. Same goes with with the PT staff. James Cascio guided me through a... program that has really been beneficial. What’s more, no question was too obtuse to ask! I highly recommend this more
Julie F.
Healing is the word! Professional and understanding there are no words to describe the personalized care and devotion!
Michael S.
I had a thoroughly positive experience from the physical therapy that I received for treating a recent lower back issue. Over a prescribed period of a month, Priti Shande taught me exercises to remediate the condition in support of vigorous biking that I've been doing. She was very helpful and... supportive and I greatly appreciated her professionalism, guidance and patience. Priti is a wonderful physical therapist and I highly recommend her and her colleagues at Professional Physical more
Fantastic. James is a consummate professional.
Waskar C.
When I first began to attend after breaking a bone in my foot I had difficulty just going up and down stairs. By the end of my prescription sessions I was able to get back on the court and play basketball. The staff is extremely friendly and works you out beyond just recovery but also to prevent... further injuries. Great experience. My therapist’s name was Priti she was more
Gay B.
Good care. Therapists develop your personal plan, adding new exercises as you are ready. They watch to make sure you're doing things right and not getting careless or forgetting. Personable and knowledgeable personnel.
Fantastic. James and Danielle are consummate professionals.
Connor A.
Helen is an amazing physical therapist. Very thoughtful and takes her time each session. Couldn’t recommend her more.Only suggestion for the organization is to make billing more clear at the time of each visit.The treatment from Helen is fantastic!
Kristin C.
I’ve worked with Helen as a physical therapist in 2016 when I was training for the NYC marathon and was having knee issues. She was an absolutely amazing physical therapist and gave me great strengthening exercises as well as stretches to get me marathon ready. She also was able to manually... manipulate and relieve pain in my knee with ease. I would highly recommend her!read more
Jerry H.
I just found out that Helen Turner will be opening a new location for Professional PT on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Helen has treated me for a number of injuries. My reaction when I heard the news:Congratulations Helen! Sounds like a terrific opportunity. I am not surprised. You are very... good at what you do. Obviously I am not the only one who recognizes your talents.I will miss having you there. On the heels of what can only be described as the physical therapist from hell, you restored my faith in the profession. Thank you for that.Wishing you the best of luck,Jerryread more
