I would highly recommend Carol to everyone. She really took care of my runner/hiker knees so well that I can starttraining for my half marathon soon. Also she planned her treatment around my vacations and trainings well. I can feel that she really cares me as a person. Her staff are also wonderful and thoughtful. I never wait for longer than 10min for all my 10+ appointments.

Carol is such a great physical therapist! I’ve been under the care of many physical therapists and Carol is by far the best. Her diagnosis was spot on, and the treatment plan that she developed for me was the right one from the start. Carol uses a hands-on approach to provide manual therapy and is always with you during treatment. She is easily reachable by phone and email. The office runs like clockwork, which is awesome for someone like me with a busy schedule. The office is very clean and the staff is super accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this office to anyone who is in need of physical therapy.

This review is for Carolita specifically. Carolita is one of the rudest, most insensitive practitioners I have ever worked with. She is completely focused on reimbursements and not at all on you, the patient. This is different from the other PTs in the office who I have seen at this practice. I have made sure in making follow up appointments with the office to not see Carolita anymore, and will ultimately be taking my care elsewhere.

She was wonderful and was able to promptly diagnose what my shoulder issues were and what our tentative game plan to get me back in order in very clear terms.

The experience was pleasant with Maria being an informed, assuringly, therapist, seemingly understanding this therapy as my aim to return to tennis.

Carol as a therapist is very outstanding, she is pleasant, organized and knowledgeable of what she is doing. The exercises that she gives me are very helpful towards my recovery. Not only does she assess your pain on every visit, but she also makes sure that you are comfortable prior to getting started with anything. I love Manhattan Rehabilitation Center and I highly recommend it!

Although i was assigned to another therapist because I preferred early appointments, all the therapists were attentive and focused on the patients’ need to get better.

I don't have much to go on in terms of physical therapists as I've only had 1 other one a few years back. I thought Carol was super professional and definitely made my hand and knee feel better after the session.
