    Two weeks after having a total knee replacement I walked into Riverwalk using a walker. After 2 sessions my walker was retired and I was using a cane. Shortly after my 4th visit I was only using a cane when outside. John always explained what he was doing, encouraged me and within 4 weeks, I reached the goal that was set at my evaluation. I would highly recommend this facility ... read more

    I must say that their professionalism, positive attitude, good humor and encouragement made a huge difference in the healing process. This environment is full of laugher, love and kindness.

  • John, who was my primary therapist, is very knowledgeable and I couldn't believe that I was feeling better after two visits from a meniscus repair. They don't rush you through your sessions and they take the time to work on you individually. If you want to rehabilitate quickly, deal with professionals with a great bedside manner, this is the place to go...read more

    I could not have been happier with the service, care, and expertise of the three physical therapists on staff. I worked mostly with Phil Pesce whom I trusted instantly: tough, yet kind and patient. I am indebted to Phil's efficient exercise regime that I could replicate at home, his constant positive feedback, and his obvious dedication to helping others heal...read more

    Phil's manual techniques and knowledge of anatomy sets him apart from all other therapists. I have been to 3 different physical therapy places and have been treated by 6 different therapists. I left each one because I wasn't satisfied with the treatment I received and felt as though the therapists didn't really care but instead were just doing their "job". When I met Phil he was very friendly and welcoming. As my therapy progressed with him, he continued to challenge the targeted areas as well as provide manual techniques (which not many therapists want to do nowadays). If I ever had a question as to why I was doing a certain exercise Phil would provide a clear explanation to me of the benefits and how it would help my recovery while keeping the medical terms to a minimum. Through his charisma, work ethic and my recovery - you know that Phil isn't a therapist but your friend who is helping you get your body back to its optimal health. Thank You PHIL!!!! You're awesome!

  • John first treated me for carpel tunnel pain in my right hand, before I had surgery and then in March of 2007 after surgery. In addition to him being a well trained, skilled physical therapist, he is responsible, conscientious, and thorough with all his patients. Truly dedicated to his profession, it is not only a job to him, but a vocation. John Amodio is called to this healing work.

    After getting a rotator cuff injury in August of 2009, I immediately sought out John Amodio. After calling to make the appointment, I learned that he moved to another facility. I didn't care the new place was inconvenient, because I'm a John Amodio "Groupie". Once John has worked with you, it's hard to go to someone else. John is like a "rock star" of the physical therapy world!

    Thanks to John's healing hands, dedication and hard work, my right hand is all healed and my rotator cuff injury is well on the mend. I for one will follow him wherever he goes! While doing my exercises, I have also watched John working with other patients with much more difficulties than I have ever had. Watching John with these other patients was like watching Apollo 11 in 1969 . . . John is as talented at his profession as Neil Armstrong was at walking on the moon! He just glides through it . . . a true art. I am delighted to have the opportunity to give this reference and I would be happy to provide any additional information that would be helpful to you in making your decision to be made whole and well with John Amodio at this new physical therapy facility.

  • Phil Pesce may be the most caring, professional and skilled health caregiver that I have ever met in my life period! Take it from me, I've met a bunch!

    I met Phil, while recovering from my second back surgery in 10 months. I was in severe pain, frustrated with the health care system, and caregivers in general. Having seen 7 Chiropractors, 2 pain management doctors, and 2 surgeons before coming to where Phil worked, with 1 or 2 exceptions most of these "highly recommended" caregivers gave me marginal care, but Phil was different, he truly is a shining light. He gave me attention, recognized my needs, and never made me feel, "it was just a job to him" because it's not. Phil cares for you like family. Don't accept any "Physical Therapy Mills" where you are just a number, and a time slot, because you don't have to with a guy like Phil around!

    I'd follow Phil for care, anywhere he went, and I have already!

    Anyone who wants to get a reference on Phil can call me directly.

    After severe shoulder surgery, i was in much pain and never thought i would recover. Then I met John. He gave me back my life and thanks to his skill, compassion, encouragement and love I was able to fully recover. He is the best and I love him for all he has done for me.

    I went to see Phil Pesce with a broken ankle. After carefully assessing my situation, Phil put together a strengthening regimen to get me back to the things I love to do. The immediate impact of the therapy and training sessions paid dividends. I was told by my orthopedic that this injury would set me back 16 to 24 weeks but I was back golfing and playing football in 9 weeks. The diligence, professionalism and analysis that Phil provided gave me the determination to work hard daily and get back in the game. He is a genuine person who knows his art and I would not go anywhere else.

  • I came to see Phil Pesce in April of 2010 to help alleviate the severe and excruciating pain in my lower back. I had herniated six discs. I was walking with a walker and it took me 40 minutes every morning to get out of bed. I was taking 3 different pain meds just to cope with my agony. My doctor was sure I would need surgery, but I really wanted to avoid that if I could. Therapy was tough. I wont lie about that. There were many days where I wanted to just give up. But 4 months later, I was able to go back to work, and live a normal life again. No more pain. No more drugs. Phil pushed me because he knew I could do it. Quite frankly I am glad he did.

    Thank you Phil for giving me my life back! You understood my condition and "always" listened and encouraged me. Your knowledge and professionalism combined with your genuine concern for your patients is remarkable. I am now able enjoy life again and can't thank you enough.

    My husband and I are former patients of John Amodio. Over two and a half years ago, I had a knee replacement performed. I had physical therapy in the hospital for three weeks. Upon discharge from the hospital I was sent immediately for out-patient therapy. John was my therapist. If it wasn't for John, I would not be walking as well as I am. He was tough on me and he would NEVER take NO for an answer, even when I wanted to give up. He is a very caring person and I couldn't have found a better therapist. My husband had a frozen shoulder two years ago which was very painful. Over several weeks, my husband had full range of motion. Recovery was painful but well worth it. Thank you John for everything. You are the Best!
