  • Carmine and his staff are awesome. They genuinely care about their patients and it shows. I have been seeing him for PT after my knee surgery. He pushes me just enough to reach my goals but not over do things. They are also very flexible with scheduling which helps tremendously when you are self employed. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know.

    I have been seeing Dr. Carmine for about a month for my back pain. When I say I haven’t felt this great since before my accident that is not an understatement. He has worked wonders so far in under a month. I highly recommend coming here if your having any sort of pain. I can’t lie to you, the work you put in outside of the office is crucial. You have to be consistent to see progress. Overall 10/10 experience

    Love Carmines’ professionalism! He takes his time to talk with you and explain the nature of your injury and his game plan for recovery. I saw immediate improvement on Day 1. I’m looking forward to continuing my treatment plan for a complete recovery. The staff is super nice also and very accommodating. I highly recommend their services for your physical therapy! You want be disappointed!

  • 5-STAR Care!! In my 60 some years of injuries and rehabbing from them (at least 12 different facilities) Carmine and his Team are the BEST. No, he doesn't pay for his customer's to write positive reviews. This team makes you feel welcome, comfortable and confident they are doing the best for each individual coming in the door, each time. I usually dread going to PT, but they make it fun, friendly and informative each visit. I appreciate the great communication, feedback, and attention to what I am telling them each visit. It makes me feel confident I am receiving the top notch service I want to heal and strengthen my injury, so I can get back to doing what I enjoy. You will not be disappointed by coming here for rehabilitation.

    Absolutely the most professional, knowledgeable yet friendly medical related office I’ve ever been to. Carmine takes you where you are starting, is always honest in your progress and in what you can expect to realistically achieve. This is in a very supportive and encouraging way and I totally appreciated his realism. I can’t imagine a rehab practice being more successful. Carmine’s style treats each person and the case totally individually rather than here’s what’s being rehabilitated so do this…he takes all factors into consideration. Ditto to each person in his practice-knowledgeable warm and helpful. Many thanks!

    Carmine came highly recommended from my knee surgeon. Oh my goodness am I glad I picked him. He has a small suite and you get tons of personal attention between him and his staff. So I put my trust in Carmine and 4 1/2 weeks later I’m pain free and playing tennis! He gave me at home exercises to do. He answered honestly any and all questions that I had. He’s available via text as well for the quick questions. Not to mention that the same people that go for PT the same time as myself become this little family. It was great experience and I’d highly recommend him to anyone who needs PT!
