Antonette does amazing work. I visited twice a week for two months and was able to see the individualized and attentive care she provided to every single one of her patients. She is careful, yet pushes you the right amount whereprogress quickly becomes evident. At just about any given appointment I had, patients had only the most wonderful things to say during their appointments. The staff are also absolutely wonderful and helpful with the patients. Jen is really helpful with getting everyone started on their excercises and making sure everyone is transitioning from one activity to the other. Amanda, who handles reception, is extremely knowledgeable about the office and the added benefit of being very accomodating and helpful if I was ever late or couldn’t make an appointment.

Great Visit! The atmosphere is relaxing. Didn't feel tense or overwhelmed. The staff, Chris, Carl, Amanda, and Jenny are all wonderful. The office is very clean, wide open spaces, and it wasn't crowded. If only going to the gym felt this easy. I'm extremely optimistic after my first visit.

I have been to quite a few physical therapy practices before and this is by far the best physical therapy practice I have ever been to. I normally visit healthcare providers in Manhattan because I tend to think that I'll geta better experience in Manhattan. I couldn't have been more wrong. First, the practice has a very large space in a really modern office complex. In Manhattan, because the rent is so high, physical therapy offices tend to be small and cramped. This is not the case at Antonette's practice. Her large space allows patients to comfortably move around and complete their exercises. It also allows Antonette to watch every patient to monitor their care and every other therapist to monitor their work. Antonette is fantastic. When she works with you, she is very detailed- she constantly asks me good questions about my pain and abilities and makes great recommendations for home care. When other therapists work with you, she sits nearby at a large desk that allows her to monitor what every therapist and patient is doing and to intervene with directions to make the therapy more effective. She is also hands-on. I go here for work on a fracture and bad sprain on my left ankle. Part of my ankle pain results from the inflammatory fluids that have built up around my ankle. So, every time I visit, Antonette gives my ankle a deep tissue massage to stretch out the soft tissue and to try to release the fluids that have built up. After four months of ankle pain, I am starting to feel better after one week of therapy. I was slowly starting to feel better before therapy, but I feel that my progress is accelerating since starting therapy and that the stability in my ankle is starting to return. I hope to start running again. On my own, I would probably start running too soon and reinjure myself. But under the guidance of the therapists here, I have been told that I need to take resting and icing my ankle seriously. I am so thankful for this advice and for the work that they do when I am here. Since I've been here, I have seen that there are other patients here for back issues, hip issues, knees issues, and nervous system rehab issues. I would tell everyone who needs therapy to go here.
