Client Testimonials

  • "Going to physical therapy at Scerbo Physical Therapy didn't just provide me with physical healing after having 4 surgeries within a 4 year time period. It provided me with emotional healing as well which made the experience that much better and helped my overall healing process. Scerbo PT is the perfect place for all of your healing needs and the therapists are like no other."

  • "Scerbo PT is the one & only place to go to, when anyone, of any age, needs to Rehabilitate from any kind of surgery...I know personally, since I had a "Double Knee Replacement" in 2007 & Frank Scerbo & his Staff, got me up & walking & I can say, today, if not for his skillful hands- on techniques, exercises & fantastic team of professionals, I would not be back at work (Retail), wearing my 3 inch Heels, & Dancing with the Stars... It's the only Rehab I would recommend! The office is Cheerful, Friendly, and provides a beautiful "View of the New York Skyline" on the Hudson... What more can you ask for? "
