I love it here. They're excellent! The staff is friendly and the physical therapists are amazing. Frances and Tony are the best! I came here after a bad experience at another PT place in bay ridge to rehab my shoulder. I had a labrum surgery. Although PT is painful, the staff makes it as friendly and fun as possible. They're great! Only thing I can say to make it a bit less confusing at first on is insurances they do or don't take. It gets a little bit confusing but they cleared it up right away when I asked :) Otherwise the place and the people/ staff are perfect !

I have had chronic pain in my lower back for a year. Tried a couple of different PT offices, their treatment helped but the pain was coming right back. At 42 I try to be active - I am a runner and play soccer twice a week - but since the pain started my active lifestyle was over. Finally I've ended up at Optimum and it was the best decision I made. It took some time but here I am pain free. I liked the office, friendly and helpful personnel and family atmosphere. I liked the way Francis approached to my treatment - starting with a comprehensive (for a change) and accurate diagnosis. Each session would end with stretching what, I believe, made whole lot of difference. In other PT offices they never offered stretching. Now I am back to running and playing soccers and the pain is not coming back. As I said - these guys are simply AMAZING!! Definitely recommend to everybody !

I started here for a minor but long-term painful arm & shoulder issue that hindered my workouts and hadn't been cured by my regular doctor, an acupuncturist, and several qualified personal trainers, yet after a few sessions with Dr. Tony I feel 100% better - he's also incredibly personable & we laugh a lot. And everybody in the office is cool; the front desk staff and PT aides, Judy & Tina, were quick to help me get an appointment my first time and discuss insurance with me, I NEVER wait for my appointment since they're always on time, and they are super friendly every time I see them. My experiences are one-on-one service which I do appreciate. It's strange to say this, but my visits are really fun and I look forward to them - I will be disappointed to not come in once I'm fully recovered.

I was diagnosed with a bulging disc on my cervical spine and needed PT before I can do any MRI. I never done any PT before and didn't know what to expect and went to this one place first and after 3 sessions I started to look for another place because I was still in much pain and the therapist gave me the creeps. Anyhow, I found this place and only After 3 sessions, I felt so much better. Firstly, the office is clean and welcoming, and the staff from receptionists to therapists are great. Secondly, I've never waited for more than 15 minutes which is amazing because you know how they kind of overbook appointments in medical offices and you wind up spending 2 hrs waiting for a 15 min session. But, nope, here you are seen pretty much on time 99% of the time. Lastly, all the therapists are wonderful because they don't just put you on a machine and then spend 5 minutes with you. They actually spend a good part of the session on manual therapy. Susanna has been working on my spine the most and her hands are magical. She goes in and tries to get out all the knots so its not pressing on my nerves and she does all these stretches on me that by the time my session is finished, I feel anew. I'm just so excited that I no longer have tingles and numbness running down my arms and I can't thank you enough for making me feel better. Definitely a 5 star place.

I've been going to a different therapy place for the last month and decided to visit optimum health. First impression was nice, clean and friendly staff. They really take the time to tend to your needs and work on whatever problem areas you are having. I came in for a swollen ankle and after my first visit, I felt better in one visit then 2 weeks at my previous PT visit. I highly recommend this place for anyone in need of Therapy services.

This place is awesome. I have 3 herniated discs, I've been to a few different physical therapists and these guys are just cut from a different cloth than everyone else I've seen.
Francis, Sue, and Tony all seem to work in tandem getting to the root of the issue. In other places it was a crap shoot on whether I'd get the "good" therapist. These 3 all rock.
This is the first place that I've had so much hands on treatment, and honestly i think thats what i needed. How the other places didn't think to help me work out the giant knots in my lower back amazes me. Only after seeing these guys did i realize how bad the rest were. In the last few places they would use a large pad type massager which didn't really help. These guys will get in there with their fingers, hands, knuckles, elbows, knees, i think i saw a foot once :) , and really work the problem area. You will scream while they do it, but it feels soooooo good after.
While I'm not 100% yet, i went in there around lets say 50% about 3 months ago. I couldn't walk, stand, or sit for very long due to the pain. I feel as if I'm at 95% right now. Im fully confident they will get me to 100. I can get through the day with no problems right now.
Also the staff is really nice, its never crowded, the music is never the crappy "massage cd" of waves and birds or something its seriously good, and you rarely wait more than 5-10 min for your appointed time which really means a lot when you are in pain!

I had to run a marathon in a few months and had a lot of problems during training. I pulled my hamstring and had some issues with my knees during running but I couldn't compromise on my training. Tony and Susanna really helped me with the recovery process. He also recommended Kinesio taping for my knees for added support and structure. This drastically reduced the pain when running. I finished the marathon without any major problems, just some really sore legs! Lol. I highly recommend this place for any sports related injuries.

I have nothing but great things to say about this facility. Front desk people are very nice, kind and helpful. Francis, Susanna and Tony are great PTs, very knowledgeable and patient. I strained my back a few weeks ago and have improved significantly after 5 sessions.

Thank you to the staff and therapists for giving me 100% attention during my 6 week recovery. It was tough and painful and I thought my shoulder and calf muscle would never get better. Your positive attitude and energy helped get me back to where I should be. Thank you.

Went here for 6 weeks starting in January with hopes of strengthening my injured knee (partial torn meniscus and a loose acl). Well as of right now I have no issues and been holding up quite well thanks to them. The staff were great and always felt welcoming. They talk and joke with you as if they were your friends. Definitely recommend.

I've been meaning to write this review for some time. I've been coming here for a few months now due to back issues. On my first visit, Francis immediately identified what was wrong and placed me on the appropriate regime. I'm not fully recovered, but just about. There are some lingering pains on rare occasions, but compared to where I was initially, I would say I'm 90% better (and hopefully increasing).
In terms of the staff, if it weren't for insurance reasons, I'd hangout there all day! They're fun and upbeat whilst maintaining the utmost professionalism. Francis, Tony, and Susanna are really thorough and ask you keep them updated on your condition. The trainers there are also on point and work in tandem with the physical therapists. I definitely recommend giving this place a try.

Francis and Antoine are awesome, their technique is working. Was about to give up (as I spent some time with other PT's) when I found them. If you ever ache from shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, or shoulder impingement --- these are your guys. So pleased I found them. I was able to lift my arm above my head to put on a shirt without pain after 8 visits. Thumbs up on the care and compassion.

Tony and Francis are the best!!! I hopped around to see a few physical therapists before I ended up here and nobody else I saw matched their professionalism, technique, knowledge and pleasantness. They do a lot of manual therapy - so you see results quickly. To top that off, they coordinate really well and share the same philosophy so there are no issues seeing both of them to accommodate your schedule.

I came in with an aching shoulder and limited range of motion. I left pain free and able to move my arm like normal.
Enough said? Well no. I also must add that both Francis and Tony are MASTERS at what they do. Caring, healers who abide by the oath they took to serve their patients I could not recommend any office more then this one. I am so glad I found them.

Tony and Francis are excellent physical therapists. They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is clean, and the equipment is top notch. I went to Optimum Health Physical Therapy to rehab my hip after surgery. The guys had me back to normal in no time at all. My surgeon was very pleased with the results.

Optimum Health PT is a unique and exceptionally high caliber organization. I am a retired RN and have many years of experience, both professionally and personally, with Physical Therapists. Tony and Francis are truly outstanding. The amount of one to one personalized "hands-on" care is phenomenal. The modalities they provide are truly therapeutic and beneficial. The time spent on trigger point massage, manipulation, stretching and other hands on care will not be found elsewhere. Other places spend 3-4 minutes "hands-on" and the rest in self guided exercises, with or without machines. I have never experienced such hands on treatment by two pleasant, knowledgeable and caring professionals. I HIGHLY recommend them.
I have been seeing them for almost a month for knee osteoarthritis and my improvement is remarkable!
Thank you gentlemen!!
Dr. Francis and Antoine were polite, amazing, well mannered, down to earth, extremely friendly. He definitely doesn't make it feel like your a doctor's office. I left their office feeling much better and with a smile on my face. I highly recommend them and if I need to come back I wouldn't hesitant. Thank you so much :D
Francis (everybody calls him Francis) is friendly, fun to be around, and committed to help his patients heal. He really knows his stuff and will give you the kind of attention that you wish was more commonplace in the medical profession. Even when he's twisting an arm or leg in a way that would normally cause a patient great stress or pain, Francis keeps the sessions light and remarkably fun. The bottom line for me was that I when I first walked into his office I couldn't move my wrist at all. With Francis' help, knowledge, patience and humor, we were (over a period of a few months) able to get my wrist moving full range in all directions without any pain. He's a great guy
I went to this clinic and was treated extremely well. My pain is all gone and i feel a thousand times better! I would recommend this clinic to anyone who is need of a physical therapist! This experience was above and beyond any other physical therapy experience i've ever had! If you ever need treatment, you should definitely go here!
Francis & Antoine, Thank you for making me feel better. I am pain free now ! Very exited and I feel more confident. It was a good idea that I came to see you because I was getting ready for a surgery but because of you I was able to avoid it. Thank you again. I highly recommend Optimum Health Physical Therapy, friendly and cozy place with excellent care and perfect knowledge. These guys they know what they are doing. Best wishes and keep up the good work.
