Edward Umheiser completed his studies at SUNY Downstate Medical Center with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2013. While at Downstate he participated in research and community service activities.
Upon graduation, he received a research study award in the area of balance and postural sway. During his final year of graduate studies, Edward was mentored at Lutheran Medical Center’s vestibular clinic where he worked with patients experiencing various degrees of dizziness, balance disturbance, and vertigo.
Edward also serves as the Clinic Director and Compliance Office for Park Sports Physical Therapy.
Edward is an avid cyclist and enjoys taking advantage of the excellent bike trails that the tri-state area has to offer.
Edward was attentive and was good about explaining what my expectations should be during each step of the process and what I needed to do both in and outside of therapy to get there. Front desk was great at organizing appointments and contacting my insurance when needed.
Highly recommended. I had both hips replaced at the Hospital for Special Surgery in August of 2015, and went to Park Sports Physical Therapy with Edward Umheiser as my PT twice a week from September through the end of November. Park Sports PT was on the list of places that HSS provided to me, so you don’t have to take just my word for it. I am now eight months post-surgery, and I’m doing very well. I live in a 4th floor walk-up and I carry my bike up and down the steps and ride it around Brooklyn for transportation and do laps in Prospect Park for exercise. I drive a car, fly to Europe, and do the many other enjoyable things in life that bad hips prevent. Thank you Edward and Park Sports Physical Therapy.
