    Every time after I finish my therapy I notice I am a little better. Staff is very caring. Especially the owner who welcomes you and gets to know you and makes sure to help you to meet your goal. The enhanced healing of aquatic therapy is very effective and I would recommend Sutton Place with confidence.

    I am so happy I chose SPPT. Carol and her staff are extremely personable. Whereas other places you can feel like your in a PT factory. SPPT intimate and one-on-one. Not to mention my broken ankle is back to a place I never imagined possible!

    I want to highlight that Sutton Place Physical Therapy has offered me a lot of flexibility with the appointments and also they have shown great interest in explaining the symptoms to me. As a Spaniard, who recently located to New York, I really appreciate the time they spend helping me understand the medical terminology. This is more than just translating language.

    After receiving a cortisone shot that didn’t work, I am so happy I went to Sutton Place Physical Therapy. It’s amazing how much better I feel after just my first session. After learning what the right exercise treatment should be along with realistic recommendations for my daily life, my ankle (tendonitis) and heel (heel spurs) already feel better.

    Sutton Place PT revitalized my right shoulder after only two months of work. My life is completely changed. I had the pleasure of working with Ben Musselman and he was excellent, focused, patient, intelligent, and extraordinarily helpful. I use what he taught me to this day and I'm pain free and able to do what I want. It was a pleasant surprise to the upside. If you have PT needs, you should go to Sutton Place PT, it's incredible.

    I have used Sutton Place Physical Therapy on three separate occasions following knee surgery and a serious illness. Each time the therapy has greatly improved my condition. The therapists are friendly, very professional and the individual therapy visits have been effective. In my case, my doctors have been surprised at the speed and completeness of my recovery. For that I have to thank my therapist, Crystal Ewbanks, who has done an extraordinary job in aiding in my recovery. I would highly recommend Sutton Place PT to anyone looking for the best physical therapy available.
