This is one of the best physical therapy places in NYC. Everyone of the therapists are nice, courteous, and competent. Dr. Podhorodecki is on premises, so if you need her input, you can make sure to book your appointment when she is there. She is also very friendly, listens and has a vast network of doctors to call for references or their opinion. The space is clean and you never feel like you are using previously used equipment or devices. I have had a very positive experience here. I have a favorite therapist, Patricia,but they are all of the same caliber. As I have been to several other facilities before landing here, I can happily say that this is the top of the line when it comes to PT facilities. And Dr. Podhorodecki is a very fine doctor who cares for her patients with great concern and expertise.
I've known Dr. Podhorodecki (or Dr. Pod as many people call her) since 1986, when she oversaw my father's physical rehabilitation after a major head injury. Her attention to his abilities and weaknesses enabled her to create a plan that made it possible for him to walk again. At the time, I thought she was amazing. Over the years, my admiration for Dr. Podhorodecki has only grown. She is always up on the latest research, which she shares with her patients as part of discussing treatment plans. I know this from personal experience because in 2003, I had a severe neck injury (herniation of multiple discs) and turned to Dr. Podhorodecki for help. Working with my requests and concerns, and coordinating with the spinal surgeon she recommended, a treatment plan was created. I worked with the highly skilled physical therapists at her practice, St. Mark's Rehabilitation, and was able to avoid surgery all together. I have excellent range of motion in my neck, and full feeling in my hands (both of which I did not have before working with Dr. Pod and her staff!) Dr. Pod also administered one of the most painful exams I've ever had: an EMG. I was extremely grateful for the professionalism with which she administered the test, letting me know how long I'd have to endure the pain so she could get an accurate reading. She was compassionate throughout, and helped me get through it so the results could be considered as part of the treatment plan. I am currently working with the physical therapists in her practice for a shoulder injury and am continually impressed by their knowledge and professionalism. One of the things I love about Dr. Podhorodecki's center is that most of the PTs who work there are long-term employees who are in constant communication with Dr. Podhorodecki. They are as dedicated to wellness as Dr. Podhorodecki is. I highly recommend Dr. Podhorodecki to friends with any type of physical injury because Dr. Pod knows her stuff! She is highly professional, deeply compassionate, and an incredible doctor.
