Jared provided excellent customer support by going above and beyond to ensure a quality experience. Philippe provided a great consultation for the neck issues that I had. I highly recommend anyone book a visit.
My PT Sarrah is very encouraging and knowledgeable. She and her team here (Curtis and others) have been given me a great program with customized exercises. I am still early in my post ORIF recovery, but after 5 sessions I already see decent improvement in my ankle ROM!
I’m forever grateful to Sarrah at Ivy for helping my ACL recovery! She is patient and knowledgeable and challenges you just the right amount. My knee and leg strength progress has surpassed expectations and it’s all thanks to them! Cannot recommend enough.
Thank you for hard work on my behalf David Jones !
Currently going through some Pt for some hip and lower back issues. I like how the provider takes time to listen to you and do multiple tests to provide me with the best program to help me get back to lifting.
Very knowledgeable and supportive staff. Joyce was an especially effective trainer: she helped me recover from my injury and unlock even more strength and agility than I had before.
Ivy Rehab was highly recommended by my doctor, rightly so. I came in with persistent radiating hip and ankle pain from half marathon/marathon training. My physical therapist, Philippe Schafer, put together an effective treatment plan that adapted as my conditioned improved. My hip and ankle are virtually pain free. I am now able to run again; just in time for my upcoming races.Lastly, everyone at Ivy Rehab was professional and cordial, and the facility was well equipped and maintained. Keep up the great work!
Great location , amazing Staff. I came because of my ACL post op surgery , and they have been helping me a lot since the first day, especially Joyce . She is very knowledgeable, attentive, and always gives great advices and confidence in order to feel like the way I was before. Front desk guy is friendly as well as the other Physical Therapists. I have 2 months and a half post op and I can see the positive results already . Definitely the perfect location if you want to feel stronger and confident again after your injury.
I was fortunate to participate in knee replacement physical therapy at the Ivy Rehab Nework in Long Island City, NY. My therapist was Joyce Valerie Co and she is an excellent therapist and the exercises and the other PT modalities were extremely helpful. Plenty of time and attention was also given to me by Joyce to work on the items that needed to be worked on. All the other staff at this location were also very helpful. Would highly recommend Joyce and the staff at this location.
Sarrah and several other members of the team gave me very good support, answered all questions I came up with and enabled me to fully recover strength post rotator cuff tendon re-attachment surgery.
Professional and friendly with the right mindset for positive and forward outcomes. They push you just enough to help you build confidence in restoring your range of motions while keeping your safety in mind.I had a knee fracture that did not need surgery thankfully, but within a couple of months I was walking in some shape or form again.The team at Ivy Rehab will also work with you and take the time to explain your body mechanics to help you better understand how your body functions and which areas to mentally focus on as you work through the exercises to restore your mobility.
My surgery was complicated and my shoulder ended up being tighter than most people post-op. Now I am almost back to full range of motion. I can reach full range passively last week, and that was the first time in 10 years seeing my shoulder at that position. Exciting is an understatement. Shoutout to Joyce. She gave me the toughest but most useful program to my recovery. And she is very nice. The supporting staffs are nice too. I am a veteran here now (almost a year) and I spent my some of my happiest moments in nyc in Ivy rehab and I swear by it.
These guys are amazing, extremely professional and caring. I truly hope I will not need PT anymore however should it happen I will call them for sure! A special thank to Sara. You really helped me 🙏
If I could give Ivy Rehab 10 stars, I would! Sarrah Bottari (clinical director) is amazing: fabulous at her job with a fabulous energy on top. I came in barely able to walk (after knee replacement). With Sarah’s help I am able to do so much more than just walk. The rest of the staff and PTs are very friendly from Jared, Phillipe, Vanessa, and John to Abe, the intern. I would never go anywhere else!
TYSM FELIPEKnowledgeable, *great communicator* and effective at helping me get back to health.
I started going here to alleviate knee pain from patellar-femoral syndrome. I was lucky enough to have Vanessa as my physical therapist and the entire process was excellent. She helped me quickly get accustomed to the exercises my body needed and to build the muscles that would prevent further injuries. After almost 2 months of therapy, I no longer have knee pain and feel more confident in my mobility. Scheduling was always very flexible and I’d highly recommend this facility!
Ivy Rehab in LIC is the best!! I had hip surgery two months ago, and friends/family have mentioned that they can’t tell that I had surgery recently since I’ve been walking like nothing happened. I feel like I get so much out of each session and I always have all of my questions answered and concerns addressed.Sarrah is the absolute best PT and the reason why everything runs so smoothly. She knows her stuff and immediately knows if you’re doing something incorrectly and will help you fix your form. Most of all, you can tell she really cares about each of her patients’ recovery. I immediately trusted her ability and judgement from the first appointment, and it’s been a great experience having her as my PT. I would recommend Sarrah to anyone needing PT services! Also shoutout to John, Abe, and Vanessa for making PT so much fun. It’s been such a relief finding a place that really cares about you, after a stressful year navigating the health care system.
Sarah Bottari is an exceptional physical therapist. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. I was able to avoid needing surgery because of how effective the therapy has been. I am indebted to her and this practice.
Dr. Phillipe helped me with my right leg which had lot of nerve inflammation and swelling. Also my lower back which was painful after my surgery.Thank you,Prakash
I had the pleasure of working with Vanessa as my physical therapist, and I cannot express how grateful I am for her expertise and dedication. Vanessa’s extensive knowledge is evident as she carefully tailors each session, taking the time to listen and understand my needs. Her diverse range of exercises keeps the rehabilitation process engaging and effective.Beyond her professional skills, Vanessa’s pleasant demeanor makes every session enjoyable. I trust her wholeheartedly and feel confident that she will guide me back to walking after a challenging fracture of my tibia, fibula, and ankle.The office environment reflects the same excellence. The staff, without exception, is enjoyable to interact with, and the atmosphere is welcoming. The well-equipped facility adds to the overall positive experience. I highly recommend Vanessa and the entire team – they’ve made my recovery journey a truly pleasant one. Thank you!
It is a very professional, yet laid back environment. Therapists are knowledgeable and friendly. I worked with Phillip and felt cared for with sensitivity and warmth.
I highly recommend Sarrah at Ivy Rehab. It was easy to coordinate appointments, they were flexible with scheduling, and the space is located with convenient access to nearby trains. Sarrah and her colleagues were super encouraging - they would listen to my concerns and helped me through some tough exercises (physically & mentally) to get my knee in a place physically it has not been in years. I cannot thank Sarrah + Co enough!
My physical therapist, Sarrah, at Ivy Rehab, was very helpful, professional, and caring! I believe the rest of the staff to have similar positive qualities… My regaining full range of motion after my shoulder surgery in a reasonable amount of time was no doubt facilitated greatly by Sarrah’s knowledgeable guidance and use of a variety of therapy techniques. Her encouragement and support provided me the incentive I needed to try to always do my best to achieve a full recovery.
I was thoroughly looked after at Ivy for 9 months post achilles rupture, I had multiple therapists but wanted to call out Vanessa who's expertise and kindness made a huge impact on me. She really helped grow my confidence on trusting my ability again and getting back to normal life.
Just wrapped up a 5 month, post-pectoral tendon surgery rehab here and feeling great. The PT's there are very knowledgable and give you in depth explanations of everything you are doing and how it is benefiting your healing process. They also analyze what you do outside of the studio and send you home with more tips and exercises to make sure you're making progress outside of your sessions, which was greatly appreciated. I worked closely with Sarrah and would highly recommend her to anyone, especially those looking to get back into sports/strength training, as her strength and weight lifting experience was incredibly helpful in getting me back into the weight room.
Sarah has been wonderful and Curtis is a pleasure to work with. They’re both very professional, fun, and knowledgeable.
Made my recovery experience and journey so smooth and easy, had a rare nerve condition in addition to a foot injury and they went above and beyond in their care. Especially grateful for Sarrah
I started coming to Ivy Rehab after foot surgery and was very lucky to have Vanessa as my PT. The road to recovery after foot surgery is pretty slow and long, but I have enjoyed every single session with Vanessa! From the moment I walk (and sometimes dance) into the PT room I am laughing and feeling at home, and when you spend this much time somewhere that is exactly how you want to feel. The massages and exercises that Vanessa has done and taught me have been instrumental in my recovery, and slowly but surely I am getting my body and my foot back, but in even better condition.At first, I thought that Vanessa checking in with me was for fun, but then I realized that she was also being a great PT. By asking questions about my very active lifestyle she could better understand what I was doing each day and adjust what we worked on.I have recommended others to Ivy Rehab and they have also had positive results! It seems that everyone here is great at their job and fun to be around. Here's a big shout-out to Curtis too! I have had such a great experience with Vanessa that I already know I will be back next year for my other foot!
My first time doing any sort of physical therapy, I worked with Vanessa and she was extremely helpful and thorough in her work. We talked in detail about my knee pain and she was attentive in helping me recover. Not only was she clear in her exercise plan for me, she sought updates to ensure that the plan was working. I'd highly recommend this location for physical therapy, the location is very clean, and you'll get the attention you want for your injury.
This location was perfect as I work nearby. After dropping in one day for information I was on my way. Sara is very helpful and patient. She explains what I’m feeling and guides me through the rough spots. I’m a thousand times better than when I first n walked in.From front desk to the back everyone is very kind and helpful. I will definitely recommend Ivy Rehab and suggest Sara foe any friend or family member.
Vanessa, Curtis and the gang at Ivy LIC are receptive, effective and pleasant, too! Glad they're in the neighborhood.
I came in with a possible foot stress fracture and halfway into my marathon training. Philippe is amazing in terms of his knowledge and helped me get back to running in weeks. In the first couple of weeks we worked on my soreness and areas which needed work. As we progressed further, we went into strength and mobility exercises. All of this under the careful observation and progression made it a joy to visit. Philippe was very thorough in terms of what was required to get me there. 10/10 highly recommend.
This is my second round of appointments with Philippe at LIC and I would not have come back if I wasn’t confident that he’d get me back to running following a new sports injury. He knows exactly where my weaknesses are and is able to quickly and effectively help me get back to activity. I am so grateful for every session and couldn’t recommend him more!
Philippe is amazing and really knows about the neck and spine. This was not my first time going to PT for my neck and he is by far the best PT I've seen. My neck issues were causing me to have debilitating headaches which he was able to address. After my first two weeks seeing him they were gone! He spends time with each patient individually and works his "magic" he seems to know exactly where the tightness is and other areas of concern. He provided me with exercises to do on my own and also showed me some gadgets (theracane & massage balls) to use that help me when I begin to feel the tightness. He knows more than the Dr. I saw at HSS!! I highly recommend Philippe and Ivy Rehab.
Great therapists. Vanessa and Curtis are amazing and attentive!
Awesome staff and care, especially Philippe, Vanessa and Curtis!
Highly recommend this therapy center, the team is very friendly and supportive. Sarrah has been great in helping me to manage my plantar fasciitis (relieve pain and build strength).
Ivy is an amazing place and change my life. Phillippe is profesional, caring and he approach your recovery fron so many angles. He is a miracle worker! All the staff are kind , space is clean.In addition is the only Vestibluar therapist in Queens.Thank you so much!
Had been dealing with plantar fasciitis for over a year and the pain had become so intense I limped when I walked. When I started physical therapy (PT) with Philippe and learned how to relieve and then manage the pain. I really appreciated the PT and education that has helped almost eliminate the pain -- it's more of an occasional nagging issue now. I now know how to prevent painful flare-ups by strengthening some little muscles and stretching others, plus I've modified my workout routine to still be effective. The front desk was also helpful in dealing with doctor referrals and insurance. The facility is bright and clean, and the environment is actually quite fun. This will be my go-to place if I ever get injured again.
I would not be back on my feet and in the gym without Philippe and team at Ivy Rehab. The facility is clean, the staff professional, and the environment is safe. Scheduling is easy and it's never overcrowded or overbooked. Philippe was incredibly engaging, professional, and accommodating. He took a holistic approach and designed a personalized plan to get me back on my feet. I cannot recommend Philippe and this facility higher.
Excellent professional therapists and friendly and efficient front desk
I came to Ivy Rehab after receiving surgery for a torn ACL and couldn’t have had a more positive experience. Dan Bogart, my physical therapist, is an expert with many years of experience and gave me incredible guidance and peace of mind throughout my recovery journey. Every appointment I had with him he asked me how I was doing, what felt good, and what maybe felt off so we could focus on the right area that day. I really appreciated the one on one time and care he provided me with. He was always open to my questions and was very receptive to my feedback so we can make adjustments accordingly. Dan provided me with more guidelines and information than my surgeon did, which allowed me to know when I was on track for recovery and the next milestones to work towards. Outside of Dan, the entire staff at Ivy Rehab LIC is extremely friendly and knowledgable, from Jared at the front desk/administration, to Curtis, who assists Dan with some of my exercises, everyone is so friendly it feels like a big supportive family. I also loved how clean, open, and bright the facility always is. Last but not least, I appreciated that it never got too crowded inside the facility, which speaks to the one on one care they provide here. 11/10 experience - I wouldn’t be anywhere without Dan and the Ivy Rehab Team!

Dan, Vanessa and all the staff here are amazing. Incredibly attentive and knowledgeable when treating me for a foot/ankle issue. Can’t say enough good things. Thank you for everything!
Great trainers & great facility! Highly recommend.
Ran a marathon in the fall and had substantial pain in my hip. Started with Maica who took the time to determine my strengths and weaknesses and prescribe a program. Eventually worked with Nick and Dan who were also great at determining exercises to do on certain days depending on what they were seeing with my progress in certain areas. They were all extremely knowledgable and explained everything throughly to me. After numerous PT sessions over a few months I'm now back running pain free and looking forward to the next marathon. Would highly recommend this place!
