  • 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!

    Carmine J. Chioccariello is bar none the best PT, period! I have seen him work with my husband’s complete shoulder replacement as well as with my meniscus repair. My mother now need PT and I would not consider taking her anywhere except to Carmine. Beyond his amazing knowledge and experience, he is thoughtful and considerate. I love the compassion that he shows everyone, no matter how old or how extensive the rehabilitation. His staff is also awesome, totally a reflection of Carmine’s management and mission. You are not going to get a “cookie-cutter” experience here. Carmine is 100% hands on which means you get his extensive knowledge and a much faster recovery time.

    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!

  • I had surgery for a torn ACL in May of this year and was given high recommendations to see Carmine for physical therapy. I couldn’t be happier that I followed those recommendations. Since the beginning of my PT sessions, Carmine and his team have tailored my rehab around how my knee was recovering, encouraging me to listen to how my body was responding to exercises and not pushing harder than what my knee was willing to handle. That philosophy has led to great progress 3 months post-surgery. In addition to the confidence I have in Carmine’s practice, the culture he has built at his office is second to none. It is an incredibly friendly environment - Carmine and his team truly care about the folks they are helping recover from injury. Perhaps you shouldn’t enjoy PT as much as I have, but Carmine and his team make sessions something to look forward to and I have been grateful for that. I would highly recommend Carmine to anyone looking for a PT - you won’t be disappointed.

    Carmine and his whole team are all outstanding! I highly recommend!! I went in for physical therapy as a conservative approach to treat long-term tendinitis in my elbow and subsequent shoulder pain from overcompensating. I had been dealing with this pain for over 2 years and had tried cortisone shots as well as following an exercise routine on my own, none of which helped. However, working with Carmine over the last 6 weeks has helped me dramatically! I have no pain in my elbow or shoulder, have been able to gain strength again, and I’m finally aware of the actions I was performing that were flaring up my pain. In addition to all of this, the environment is warm and friendly and fun! I felt like I became part of their work family, and I’m actually going to miss seeing them all!

    Carmine and the team are amazing! You really get attentive, specialized and effective treatment. I came here after a car accident which left me with multiple injuries from head to toe and felt hopeless and scared in my recovery but carmine really helped me believe that I can get better and with going consistently I now do. Def would recommend carmine for your physical therapy needs!
