I am so glad I found Rik [Misiura]. Without him my life would be misery.Bruce Lee, author
I was not looking forward to my PT experience, but I have been pleasantly surprised as to how well it has gone. I never have to wait, I get appointments when I need them (and I can only come late, so being open until 8pm is great), and everyone is sincerely interested in my progress. I feel much better.Lois Silk, ballet dancer & actress
I called a number of organizations before I chose CPPT. My decision was based solely on the telephone manners of the front office staff. They reflected exactly what I was looking for—courtesy, expertise and the ability to communicate. I also liked the flexibility and sensitivity of my therapist and the spacious and soothing surroundings.Maxine Prescott
[My Therapist] is very patient and seems to know exactly what areas she needs to concentrate on in order for my healing to progress.Dawn Arhead
[My therapist] was excellent. He knows his business and is thorough. Although my shoulder is much better, he advised me about other physical problems I have. He is very observant. He's a nice fellow. In the beginning I was very tense, but he kept me talking and I relaxed.Gail Crane
Each staff person I encountered treated me with professional competence, respect, caring and personalized attention and even made me feel special. The environment had both efficiency and warmth. I believe this combination in treatment service sped my recovery from knee surgery.Jan Bronson
The physical therapy you provided for my shoulder tendinitis returned full range of motion and virtually eliminated the joint pain. I have continued to perform the selection of exercises you gave me and I feel great! I want to compliment your excellent staff on their professionalism and would not hesitate to use or recommend Bryant Park Physical Therapy in the future.Paul Geiger
My lower back problem has disappeared after my course of therapy with [my therapist]. I'm now going for treatment for my knee. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend your facility.Barbara Muracci
In a society where people are constantly rushing about, I find that coming here gave me and chance to catch my breath, and I feel that someone is in tune to my suffering. It's so nice to be around people who don't make you feel like you are insignificant.Shirley Dargan
My physical therapist has had extensive experience in the field of sports medicine, with very specific experience related to feet. His dedication and expertise have encouraged me immensely. When we began, I think the range of motion in my left ankle was something like minus twelve. These days, it ranges anywhere from plus five to plus ten. The changes I described have been life-altering and I am constantly amazed by the way that my left foot has been transformed. I never imagined that such impressive results could be achieved without some sort of radical operation.Valerie Turner, inline speed skater
After so many years in agony, I can now look forward to a renewed life!Elizabeth Mallard
My therapist was thorough with explanations and was not rushed, something not often seen in the medical field.Anthony Loechner
[My therapist] taught me the proper way of sitting with both feet on the ground, and to use a headphone since I have neck pain. These are only a couple of things I learned.Rita Abramovich
Central Park Physical Therapy has helped me rebuild my body.Susan Elizabeth Williams
I very much enjoyed my time at CPPT. I felt as though my recovery time was hastened by proper therapy, carefully scheduled appointments and a caring staff.D'Andrea M. Aytes
I've had physical therapy at many facilities and this is by far the best!Janet Shapiro
"Physical therapy involves a lifetime of dedication to individual growth and refining of skills. It also means treating the whole person, addressing both the physical and mental aspects of each patient, and interacting with them in such a way that allows for a relationship of trust and respect to be built."
