Patient reviews for Rainegale Pesidas, DPT, PT
Raine and her team are amazing! I recently hurt my knee and Raine put me on a plan to get better and start moving again. She is extremely knowledgeable, and in 1 month I’m feeling better!
I don’t know where I would be without Raine! Honestly the answer to that is probably laying on the floor because my back was hurting. She is a heaven send. She makes sure to give you clear directions and in a few weeks got me back on skis after months of extreme pain. She doesn’t load you down with unattainable goals. She is supportive, kind and an incredible physical therapist. 10/10
This is my first visit to Physical Therapy. I can tell that I am so lucky that Dr. Raine is the one who will help me with my knees and lower back pain. She is so professional and very nice. I will definitely recommend her to my relatives and other friends.
Raine is an excellent physical therapist! She spends time explaining the treatment and exercises and how it affects your muscles and body. She pays attention to your needs and adjusts if something doesn’t feel right or is too difficult. She is personable and all the staff are helpful and respectful. Evening appointments are difficult to get, but she does offer early morning appointments if you want to go before normal working hours. I would definitely recommend this place, and it’s easily accessible from the Bryant park subway stop.
I was lucky to find this place for my first time in physical therapy. I came in hoping to get some relief from chronic back and neck pain. I’ve been working with Raine and Laura for 3 weeks and have a lot less pain. They’ve given me exercises that are manageable and impactful. They are also lovely people. Extremely professional, warm and genuinely committed to educating their patients and improving their health.
I've been seeing Raine for a couple of months now, and she is such an incredible physical therapist. She seems to have an instinct for what is causing pain and how to fix it. She is always careful and makes sure that none of the exercises cause me any pain. I've made visible progress since we started working together, and she is ensuring that I have the tools and information I need to stay well once we are done with our regular visits. Everyone at NY Spine is also kind, professional, and great at what they do. I'm so grateful I found Raine and her team!
Never a wait to be seen at NY Spine. Raine and her colleagues are friendly and caring. Also, Raine works closely with the other members of the practice to ensure your care is efficient and effective. I could not recommend more if you are having back pain.
I love working with Rain, she is very personable and skilled and has helped my back a ton!
Raine is an excellent PT; my pain has diminished with the help of her exercises and manual work, and the entire office is friendly and knowledgeable. This practice really understands scoliosis and the pain it can cause with specific anatomy. If you're looking for help alleviating back pain, I would definitely recommend Raine!
She is attentive and cares for her patients
Raine is the most personable doctor I have had the luxury of working with. The amount of effort and care that goes into the therapy is unmatched. The therapy is explicitly tailored to your needs and this is something that is extremely rare. Aside from being extremely knowledgable Dr. Raine is an absolute pleasure to be around.
Dr. Pesidas is not only very knowledgeable, but fun to work with. She listens to me patiently and carefully, provides a lot of very helpful explanations and recommendations. Her bubbly personality makes each and every one of my PT session a total delight.
Raine is very knowledgeable. She thoroughly examines and plan our treatment. She listens and is super patient in her guidance at every visit.
Raine has put right a long term shoulder injury that I had been suffering with for months. Wish I’d seen her sooner. Thanks Raine
Raine is such a wonderful PT. She is very thoughtful when working with you and does not rush through sessions. Within one week, my lower back felt so much better. Raine is extremely professional and supportive. I would recommend her 100% to anyone suffering from chronic back pain.
She is an excellent PT. Extremely experienced and friendly. She always took the time to explain in details, and indicate how the given exercise would benefit the body. She also has an amazing support team, from the front desk to the assistant PTs, they are all very professional.
I’m very happy with the treatment I received for a back injury. The doctor took her time to listen and work with me on my rehabilitation program. I at no time felt rushed. After a few weeks of treatment my back is feeling much better and as an added benefit my general flexibility has noticeably improved. I will definitely return when I inevitably reinjure myself in a new and creative way.
She is super smart! Came in for runner’s knee and she explained everything.
Raine is incredibly personable and professional. I highly recommend her and the team for your PT needs!
I have a bulging disc problem that had gotten very painful in my lower back and hip and Raine and Andrew saw me right away and put me on a new exercise regimen that has been helping me greatly. They are caring, thorough and patient. With the team at NY Spine taking care of my back, I know it will be a success and I’m in the best hands. They care about your recovery and do everything to ensure it happens!
I fell really hard forward on my left shoulder resulting in extreme pain every time I tried lifting my arm above the shoulder. Dr. Chu gave me two cortozone shots, Rainegale administered amazing message treatments, and Andrew/Dom gave me expert direction in how to re-strengthen my shoulder. I made a full recovery and now im in the best shape of my life because I continue with their long lasting instructions. Thanks guys!
Raine has been a wonderful PT that has helped me with two different injuries. She has been great about developing a treatment plan that is flexible to my needs and lifestyle.
Rainegale is my absolute FAVE! I started seeing her because I had numbness in my right hand and she's totally fixed it. I've only been going for a couple of months and have already seen major results. She's an angel!
I have been suffering from lower back pain for many years and made an appointment at NY Spine and Rehab in January after a particularly painful flare up and they were able to see me almost right away. Dr. Pesidas been treating me for a few weeks now and I can only say great things about my physical therapy sessions and my consultations with the other doctors. I have seen huge improvement in my lower back and the whole team at NY Spine and Rehab is very professional and friendly. I definitely recommend coming here!
I've been coming to NY Spine and Rehab for the past five months, working with Raine to help the discomfort I felt in my upper back. In terms of the office, there is basically no wait time and everyone is always very friendly and professional. Raine herself is extremely detailed and cares that you are making progress (will make sure your posture is 100% correct when doing exercises), and is very knowledgeable and relays that knowledge in every PT session. I'd recommend her to friends and family for anyone.
I've seen significant improvement with my lower back problems after seeing Raine and the NY Spine staff. I went to Raine after struggling with lower right back pain for several months. Within the first few weeks, I started to see a drastic improvement in my pain levels. Within 2 weeks I no longer needed to take Aleve for my pain on a daily basis. Raine is very professional and knowledgable, and cares deeply about her patients well-being. Raine was great at taking my feedback and progressively adjusting my stretches and exercises based on the feedback I had given her. Additionally the entire staff at NY Spine including Andrew and Dr. Chu are very hospitable and focused on delivering positive outcomes for their patients. I highly recommend Raine and NY Spine & Rehab.
Extremely thorough initial evaluation. Raine took a lot of time to look at my overall posture and surrounding areas that could be contributing to my discomfort. Excellent to work with and unlike every other PT shop I've been to, she WILL stay as your therapist. You do not get pawned off to an intern. I highly recommend her and the entire staff.
Raine is an excellent PT who is extremely knowledgeable, attentive and caring. I feel that I have received very high-quality care from her and I would highly recommend her. The office is clean and pleasant with friendly staff and I am always seen promptly.
I sincerely can't rave enough about Raine and the other doctors and therapists at NY Spine & Rehab Medicine. I've been experiencing chronic pain since I was a child (from scoliosis, spondylolysis/PARS defect, tendonitis, pinched nerves, etc.) I've had surgery, and I've seen multiple orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists but NY Spine & Rehab is probably one of the few facilities that provided me with some hope that I will be relatively pain-free. Since January, I've seen and I feel the results. I don't wake up with lower back pain, I'm not dependent on any medications, and I can work out at least 3x a week. I finally feel like a healthy woman in my 20s! They provide electro stimulation and manual therapy at every session. And they will gladly work on your back one session and then your knee at another. They just need to do an evaluation first (which is very thorough btw). They teach you A LOT of stretches and exercises to increase flexibility and strengthen targeted areas of the body, tips to prevent injury or further damage, and kinesiology taping techniques. There is a lot that you can take away and incorporate into your everyday life. Also, I need to mention that the whole staff- especially Andrew- is always kind, personable, and helpful. They disinfect their tools, and use clean sheets and pillow cases after each patient. I really appreciate their care and attentiveness. AND they try their best to work with my schedule. I highly recommend them!
Raine is such a thoughtful, friendly, and knowledgeable PT. She took the time to evaluate and explain to me why I had pain, and how PT treatment and exercises would help. She's very thorough, and under her care I've recovered from debilitating neck and shoulder pain to feeling significantly better and having improved range of motion/upper body strength. Highly recommend!
Raine is incredibly professional yet friendly. I could tell I was making progress with each visit and even looked forward to PT with her and her team, even though PT is a drag.
What can I say about Dr. Rainegale? If I could give her 100 stars I would. When I went to see her first around Sep 20 with a fully torn rotator cuff, I was in bad shape.I couldn’t brush my teeth,wash my hair,comb my hair,wipe my body or put on my clothes without a fair amount of pain.Getting out of bed in the morning was an ordeal,thinking about all the pain I would go through just to get ready for work.Mentally,I had many sleepless nights thinking about whether I should have a surgery or not. Some people even said I would make my condition worse with Physical therapy. But the doctors at NY Spine told me to give Raine a shot for a few weeks. We started off slowly and the improvement was slow at first. She gave me a home exercise program which I followed to the letter. Most of all, she would always hear me out, listen to my problems and alter the excercises to suit my needs. Its been almost two months now since Raine started treating me and there’s been a significant improvement in my shoulder movements and pain. I look forward to waking up earlier than normal every morning because there is no pain in getting ready and I spend 30 minutes doing the excercises that Raine has prescribed because I know it helps. I would highly recommend Dr Rainegale for any orthopedic problems. Not only is she a brilliant Doctor of Physical therapy but she is also a genuinely lovely person who sincerely cares for her patients. After seeing her for close to 2 months now, she seems to me to be a doctor who takes it as a challenge to cure her patients.
Raine was able to provide a personalized level of support to help me overcome an ankle issue prior to an important running race. Her ability to listen, understand and react accordingly to my needs I felt was highly professional. I also appreciated the lack of waiting time, pleasant two-way conversation and positive atmosphere in the studio.
Raine is a fantastic PT, she has a great way of explaining things, and helped me recover from my injury. All of the staff at NY Spine and Rehab are also great.
Raine was absolutely amazing! She not only helps with pain, she makes sure you are following the routine she puts for you as well as gives you the guidance you need when you're done with the treatments... honestly best experience I've ever had with a PT.
Raine is the absolute best. Hurt my lower back to the point I couldn't stand up or walk on my own. But with her help and expert care, I made a full recovery and I'm feeling great. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and really helped when I was in a lot of pain. More importantly, she was able to show me ways to ensure I don't hurt myself again in the future. I couldn't have recovered without her and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She's great!
I've been seeing Dr. Raine and her team for treatment on my torn shoulder for 4 months now, and I could not recommend Raine more. I'm nearly 100% back to normal by now and it's been a smooth, structured path to full recovery. Raine has always been very knowledgeable and forthcoming with answers to my anatomical questions and her work on my shoulder has yielded tangible results from the start. She's also very fun to talk to, which is underrated yet important when she's working on your shoulder for 20 minutes each morning! Administratively, she's super flexible with scheduling mornings, which works well with my work hours, appointments are always on time and she's never seeing too many patients at once. Her therapy assistants are also excellent. They're friendly, attentive but not overly so and they know what they're talking about. I've never had a better PT experience before, and Raine is the only physical therapist I'll see in NYC.
Raine and Dr. Dwyer have been very helpful and kind! I would highly recommend them.
Dr Pesidas was awesome! She was friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel totally comfortable. I would highly recommend her if you're looking for a physical therapist.
Dr. Pesidas has been very kind and professional since the first appointment. She's wise and dedicated and that made me feel to be in the right hands in order to solve my elbow issues. Excellent DPT and outstanding person. All the staff at the clinic is really nice and helpful.
Raine is the best! She's a caring and patient doctor. Would definitely recommend giving her a try.
Rainegale is great! Her and her team have been helping me treat my (pretty severe) back injury for the past two months. She always takes the time to explain what she is doing, why she's doing it, and how it's going to help me. The PT can be tough but her and her team make it worth the effort.
I will highly recommend Raine. There is no waiting time for the physical therapy, every appointment can be reached right on time which is so convenience for a busy day schedule. She is so experienced, her techniques relieved my neck pain right after each therapy and loosen the pressure on the back. She is considerate, with patience, and very nice to the patient. I will recommend this excellent physical therapist to everyone.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Rainegale Pesidas at NY Spine and Rehab. She was very polite and understood my medical history. Her treatment plan made sure my speedy recovery. She is very dedicated and approachable as she entertains email queries during her non-working hours. Overall the clinic is well managed with scheduling. Doctor was always ready and available as per the appointment. I would recommend this clinic and Dr. Rainegale for their personal touch and professionalism.
I have been working with Raine for a few months now and she has done an amazing job. She is a spectacular PT. She spends a sufficient amount of time on manual therapy and is attentive while I perform my exercises to make sure I perform them correctly. She custom tailored a training regimen for me based on my specific issues and is great about explaining what she is doing and why. She has provided significant relief for the lower back pain that I have struggled with for quite some time. I have truly had an excellent experience all around. The entire staff has been tremendously helpful and friendly. There is a strong focus on customer service, everyone I have worked with has been very knowledgeable and the facility is immaculate. I would recommend this office to everyone who is in need of treatment!
Raine is awesome!!!! she helped me with my partially torn rotator cuff; with various exercises, stem and stretches. She's very patient and knowledge when it comes to your muscle groups and explains everything thoroughly. Under her guidance, I was able to recover very quickly from my injury. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone who's in need of a physical therapist.
Raine is excellent. She consistently provides a thoughtful combination of exercises/therapy that has produced significant, tangible results. Always patient and receptive of feedback -highly recommended!
Raine takes time to analyze my condition and always records my progress. She switch up the routine so it's never boring and remembers all my issues so I never have to repeat where I'm hurting. She is caring and great!
