I completed physical therapy here after spraining my ankle. I worked with Dean at the Clinton Hill branch and had a very positive experience. He is extremely skilled, knowledgeable, attentive, and was very helpful with answering all of my questions. My strength, balance, flexibility, and ability to return to daily activities and exercise improved tremendously after completing PT here. The front desk staff was also friendly and helpful, and the facility is clean and well equipped. Overall, I’d definitely recommend Park Sports Physical Therapy.
I am very pleased with my experiences at Park Sports. Every therapist I worked with at the Fulton St. location was excellent. John and Dean weren’t just skilled physical therapists, they were genuine and supportive people, the kind of people who would go the extra mile for you. The high quality facilities at the Fulton St. location are important as well. It was always a clean friendly environment. If you need physical therapy, I strongly recommend Park Sports Physical Therapy.
