To make this concise out of respect for time, Bobby N. is hands down, the best, most experienced, hands on, alert, knowledgeable, caring, and considerate PT that I’ve every known. Both my shoulders, especially my right, have been in pain for several years, getting worse now that I'm in my 40's. When they scanned them both they used words like, "bursitis, tendinosis, fraying, tears, sheath effusion, mineralization, arthrosis" that I am not familiar with. Surgery had been the recommendation for years. I've tried other PT facilities within the Northwell Health network and was basically given a 5 min evaluation, then a print out, a green rubber band, and told to go home and do the exercises on the papers every day, with no clear guide from the PT of what I was doing or what to expect. Coincidence had me run into Bobby at a gym one day. I showed him my scans off my Northwell Health app and he said "we can get you better" and I did not believe him, yet he seemed sincere, so I retained a script from my primary doctor for 16 sessions for my shoulders. I am now at the halfway point of those sessions and Bobby, and only him, has made me a believer that you can recover and strengthen and improve range of motion greatly WITHOUT surgery. His hands on approach and almost 2 decades of experience, allows him to connect his expertise and education with your joints on the PT tabel. This maximizes the session each time by being present with you through each exercise and controlling the movements precisely so there is no risk of injury to the patient, whilst maintaining optimum range of motion to benefit the joint. In closing, if there were more PT's like Bobby, the world would be a better place.
