I will be forever grateful to the Full Circle Staff! It took six years and four different physical therapy facilities before I was fortunate enough to be referred to Full Circle. It has been a complicated recovery for me and thanks to the care I received here , I am finally hopeful! Diana has years of experience and the knowledge required to treat the many side effects and mobility issues that breast cancer patients can experience. All the PT’s and staff are wonderful. From the minute you walk in you are surrounded by optimism and assured the best level of care. They take the time to educate you, explain the exercises and movements, and are positive and encouraging. The other PT facilities gave me generic exercises and I was mixed with clients that had a myriad of injuries and surgeries. I rarely saw the same PT and they had little experience with my problems. Here I felt a sense of community. Diana researched and collaborated with her staff and colleagues to develop a plan of care for my unique situation. If you are recovering from breast cancer surgery, or if, like me, are experiencing long term complications from treatments you will be in the hands of experts. This is definitely the best PT for the specialized care of breast cancer patients.

Diana is AMAZING!!!! I was frustrated after 2 months of healing from DMX that my doctor insisting I go to PT. Hadn’t I done enough?!? But once I stepped into Full Circle I immediately felt I made the right decision. I could have gone somewhere closer, or gone twice and been recommended exercises to do on my own, but the experience of working with Diana, and seeing the actual progress was profoundly healing. I now look forward to going, as for me, it’s more inspecting than support groups or other “cancer” forms of support. She truly made me feel like I got this. I went from victim to taking charge of my own healing. Thank you Diana and full circle!!!!!

My mom has recently received therapy for a mastectomy in the last few months and she can’t stop raving about how friendly and caring NYRehab people are as they really listened to her. This is definitely the right place to go for all women facing breast cancer and the impact of surgery because of it

I was referred by a nurse practitioner at Memorial Sloan Kettering, because their rehab was so booked up. I couldn't be happier with the treatment I got at Full Circle Rehab in Garden City, NY. The physical therapists, Fran and Kathy, are so knowledgeable and give wonderful treatments. The office staff and exercise therapists are warm and helpful. Was so good to have a place that caters to the specific needs of women going through recovery. I highly recommend anyone going through Breast Cancer recovery to take advantage of what they offer.

Full Circle Physical Therapy is an exceptional place to receive care. From the moment you enter, it is a warm and welcoming environment. Every employee and therapist is friendly, helpful, caring, and hard-working. They always go above and beyond. There aren't enough kind words or stars to give to Full Circle. I would highly recommend them to anyone recovering from breast cancer surgery.

Every single therapist and employee in Full circle works so incredibly hard making sure we heal inside out. Having cancer and surgeries can be so traumatizing to anyone and the ladies here work so hard and they show the utmost compassion and love towards every patient. Best therapy I have ever received. My surgeon was impressed at how much necrosis they helped heal inside my breast. I was finally ready for more surgery which wasn’t as extreme because of the Type of therapy I received.I can not thank Diane and her Staff for every thing they have done for me and my healing. I love all of you and can’t wait to come back and continue my therapy.

Full Circle helped me regain full movement in my left arm. Going through breast cancer is one of the hardest diseases women and some men face. This is a one of a kind place where Diana and her staff will help with massages and exercise to feel whole again. We do not know how we take are bodies for granted until we have limited use. I’m forever grateful and thankful there was a place like this when I went through my breast cancer recovery. Diana words cannot describe how much you and your staff are appreciated and loved. I enjoyed going for my arm therapy. Your Mom working at the reception desk is great she always made me laugh with her great sense of humor. It made things easier to get through. Great location and beautiful office. I would give you a 10+ review if I could. Thank You!! Rosa

I am pre-op and having surgery 4/21. They have been very supportive getting my shoulder ready for the reconstruction. I also was taught what I can do while needing to be in the T-Rex position during post op. I can’t wait to start post-op rehab with ladies who get the whole process of this surgery and how it effects not just the surgery site.

I was a patient at Full Circle several years ago (for non-breast-cancer ailments), I built the practice's original website, and I've known founder and clinical director Diana Tjaden personally for a long time. So I've had the opportunity to see from several different angles what a special place Full Circle is. Anyone who knows Diana knows that for her, PT is not just work, it's a lifelong mission. Through the unique breast cancer treatment program she created - launched before most doctors were even prescribing PT for breast cancer patients - she and her staff have helped thousands of women have better quality of life in the aftermath of a diagnosis. If you're dealing with breast cancer and are looking for PT to relieve symptoms, I highly recommend Diana and her practice.

I am using my husband's account to write this review. The staff at Full Circle are amazing in every manner. Diana and Fran are beyond amazing. Even before the covid pandemic hit, they were extremely clean and careful because most of their clients are immune compromised. Now with covid they take even more precautions. They care about everyone and you can see it in how they interact with their clients. I have been in physical therapy in other places for different issues in the past and was left to do my exercises by myself with little guidance. Here, they make sure that you are doing each exercise correctly and constantly monitor you. Everyone that you interact with is fabulous. They recently merged with Ivyrehab physical therapy. I have not noticed any changes since the merger.

There is no other place like Full Circle PT! A friend of mine enthusiastically referred me after my prophylactic surgery. Initially I developed cording which impeded my range of motion significantly. To my amazement, after a few sessions with Diana and the entire team, my issue resolved. Over the years I have returned when needed. I am always amazed how supportive and caring the entire team is. Diana consistently figures out the issue at hand and comes up with an individualized plan to resolve it. The sessions consist of massage and exercise, but there is always laughter mixed in, inspirational quotes on the walls and it's such a relaxing and positive place to go. Diana's passion and for her work is evident and she is so skilled in this specialized area. She is making a difference for so many women. Following my experience, I too, have enthusiastically referred many women here. It is the best!

I simply cannot say enough good things about Full Circle PT. I came to Full Circle very soon after undergoing a bilateral mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction and just prior to beginning chemotherapy. To say that I felt comfortable and welcomed with open arms is an understatement. Full Circle is like no other physical therapy offices I have been to before. When you have experienced, or are experiencing, a life-changing event like being diagnosed with breast cancer a place like Full Circle is an absolute necessity. Everyone there is warm, caring, supportive and understanding. My time with Diana is undeniably one of the highlights of my week. Although I hope to never have to refer someone here, for obvious reasons, I would do so wholeheartedly and know that they will be in the best hands possible during their recovery.

Full Circle Breast Cancer PT should get more than 5 stars! The staff is talented and supportive, and they take the time to explain the reasoning behind my personalized PT plan. The environment is welcoming and very positive, which is a huge plus. They have convenient hours, and I never feel like I am being rushed out of the door. It is an outstanding place!

aAs a retired case manager I am well aware of great local PT facilities and Full Circle is at the top of my list. I only wish I had known of them sooner. I developed frozen shoulder 6 mos post op and it was worsening daily. Thru NYU I learned of Full Circle and interviewed Diana. I started in March unable to move my left arm and graduated today 8/26 with full mobility. Diana and her team are patient caring and they focus specifically on the needs of survivors. I am going to give their cards to my mds to recommend early intervention which is the key to any successful rehabilitation program.

As a practicing Physical Therapist for 31 years, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer this past year, there was only one place I knew to go for my post mastectomy care, and that is Full Circle PT. Diana Tjaden is the most knowledgeable therapist you will find on Long Island for your rehabilitation needs. She has a very professional and caring staff. Her manual therapy (hands on ) skills are very effective along with her application of therapeutic exercises. I drove 50 mins each way to go to my therapy appointments where I have many local clinics I could choose from. I highly recommend this practice to meet your breast cancer therapy needs.

Full Circle PT is an exceptional and professional physical therapy organization. The physical therapists and PT assistants are all superb, bright and caring. They treat not only the physical body but the mind. They are a source of knowledge and caring which is specific to breast cancer. They treat the whole person and are highly effective. I heartily recommend this remarkable group of physical therapists and their assistants. My thanks and gratitude to you all.

When I first began a physical therapy program after my first mastectomy, it was at a local facility in my community. The staff was knowledgeable about a variety of conditions. They were caring and attentive but not experts about breast cancer. My Radiology Oncologist suggested I try Full Circle; the difference in treatment was profound. I cannot express how grateful I am for the care given to me by Diana, Fran and the entire staff. Their knowledge about the effects of chemo and radiation on the body were enlightening. I will never consider myself a former patient with Full Circle because I will return for “tune-ups” to make sure I do not regress.Barbara, Survivor

After my double mastectomy surgery, I was lucky enough to hear about Diana’s Full Circle Program through a friend who had also recently gone through breast cancer. “You have to see Diana - she will change your life for the better,” my friend told me. And that is exactly what happened. Diana has completely changed my life for the better – both physically and emotionally. After surgery, I completely lost range of motion in both of my arms. I was only 28 years old and I felt like I was 80 years old – not being able to reach up and put on my shirt without my husband’s help. The first time I saw Diana, I felt confident that I would be back to my young self again. Within a few weeks of seeing her, my range of motion was restored and the tight cords in my arms were resolved. I continued to see Diana through chemotherapy, reconstruction surgery and radiation. Each step of treatment brought on new challenges. Diana diligently worked with me and customized exercises and tissue massage that would help me gain back strength, restore full range of motion and lower my risk of Lymphedema. Diana was always available to answer phone calls and offer advice any time I had a problem during treatment. Not only did Diana help me physically, but she always took time to offer emotional support and optimism. After a year of seeing Diana, I was just recently discharged from the Full Circle Program. I feel energetic and strong. I am back to work full-time and I’m back to exercising, swimming and enjoying life. I can honestly say that out of my medical team of 10 doctors and nurses, it is Diana who has helped me the most during my journey. Thanks to Diana, I finally feel back to my normal, strong and young self again.

I was recommended to see Diana after my surgery. I had some issues with range of motion, but after only a few sessions with Diana I was pretty much as good as new. Diana and her staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Diana really cares a lot about her patients and is always available when you need her. Physical therapy is a very important part of recovery from breast cancer surgery, and Diana makes that part as smooth and painless as possible. Her programs are all patient specific and are individualized to each patients specific needs. I highly recommend Diana to anyone recovering from BC.

Diana and her program have been a blessing to me. After surgery I had very limited range of motion and Diana had me out throwing softballs to my daughter before I knew it. I could not have gotten to this point on my own. The combination of therapeutic work Diana does on me and the exercise program really works! After my radiation and additional surgeries I had more set backs but I am back with Diana now and am fully confident she will have me back up and going before long. Full Circle is more than just a program for women with breast cancer, it is the confidence of knowing you have a dedicated physical therapist who goes above and beyond and honestly cares for each and every patient. I highly recommend Diana and her program.Katie Nidermaier

As a colleague of Diana's I can say that I highly recommend her services to anyone I know in the Nassau County area. She not only has amazing manual skills, but also a heart of gold and a passion for her life calling. She has helped and continues to help many women recovering from breast cancer.
