Welcome to New York Physical Therapy

New York Physical Therapy grew out of our desire to create a warm and healing environment where we could spend the time necessary to listen to our clients and understand the factors affecting their health, to provide thorough, individually tailored care. Read More

We learned in earlier experiences at the Mount Sinai Medical center and other outpatient settings that a holistic approach is the most effective way of helping people to heal. We are fortunate to have assembled a team of highly skilled therapists who are uniquely qualified to evaluate and treat a wide range of conditions and diagnoses. Our therapists are noted experts in their field, having published in peer-reviewed journals and serving as adjunct faculty at a variety of physical therapy programs within the city. They are innovative, dedicated, empathic people; the kind of PTs we would send our own family members to for treatment.

At New York Physical Therapy:

We Listen

  • We are committed to a one-on-one, holistic approach, to treat you as a whole person, not just as an injured part or two.

We Give You a Plan

  • Your treatment will be tailored to your needs, your lifestyle and your goals.
  • We can communicate and work effectively with your doctor and your insurer (including Medicare).
  • You’ll leave New York Physical Therapy with greater strength, flexibility and possibility.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon,
