John was an excellent PT provider! I went in for an IT band issue from long-distance running and over the courseof a month he was able to help me build strength and stability so I could run again without pain. He was incredibly knowledgeable and super fun to chat with during PT sessions. The LIC practice was also a fantastic location - easy to get to and showers if you go before work. Easily my best PT experience ever!

John is an excellent PT. The utmost professional, with a pleasant and encouraging disposition. He demonstrates an expertisein his craft by explaing what is happening with your anatomy, what the plan of attack is to get you better, and why we are doing it. He listens, asks for feedback, and manages your expectations, while pushing you to reach your goals. I would recommend him to any friend of family member.
