Success Stories

Angela B.

HI! My name is Angela Bardis and here is my story. When I first started therapy I had a really bad lower back pain. My doctor recommended Advanced PMR and said they have transportation for me too! They took my insurance, gave me rides and made me feel so much better. My back is feeling so much better and it feels like it was miracle, like nothing ever happened!! I’m so happy I choose this place, I can definitely say I made the right decision. Thanks to the team at Advanced PMR I am pain free! 10 stars!!

I’m so grateful that my doctor recommended Advanced PMR in Brick. The entire staff is wonderful. The facility is clean and well organized. I get personal attention to my specific problems. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I no longer walk with a limp and can manage stairs without having to pull myself up with the railing. I’ve been suffering extreme pain and weakness since a 2010 car accident. I had previous physical therapy elsewhere, injections, etc.. but nothing seemed to work. That was until I started at Advanced PMR. Advanced PMR is simply the best.

I had my first total knee replacement on august 6th 2018 and my second three months later on November 7th// I return to work tommorow right on schedule thanx to my therapist Mary in the morganville office–Mary and her regular assistant Ashley are truly two of the sweetest and professional girls I’ve ever met– I was nervous at first because I had heard so many war stories about physical therapy but after meeting Mary she gave me confidence that physical therapy would affect my life in a positive way– I can honestly say that in Mary I have one of the best physical therapists in the world because not only did she get me thru the roughest times in my life physically but she made me feel comfortable and made me fell like I belonged and she knew just what I needed to get back to work and stronger physically– I can honestly say now that had it not been for her I probably wudve taken the easy way out and skipped pt and would not be where I am today physically– I can honestly say after watching her with all her patients she truly cares and I can say not only has she gained a fan but she will be a friend for life!! replacing both my knees was one of the tuffest decisions I ever made and so was choosing a place for physical therapy but thanx to Mary it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made 👍

I have been attending Advanced Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for over 18 months or more. I find great improvement in my total well being all due to the professional expertise of their wonderful staff, especially Matt, Rhia, Dave, Lauren, and Kristen, who perform their duties with care and individual concern for their patients. I recommend them to everyone who seeks a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Ryan has worked a true minor miracle with me. I never felt confident I was receiving the best in PT until I met all the warm, friendly, and knowledgeable staff at the Brick site.
Other PT places just gave me a cookie cutter routine. Dr. Ryan patiently and thoroughly worked with me 1 on 1 to get me a the path to full recovery. In fact, I am in better shape and have zero pain. I can’t thank Advanced PMR enough. Make your appointment!

I just recently completed my treatment at Advanced PMR- Edison and I am absolutely amazed at the progress that I have made in such a short amount of time. It was an absolute pleaure working with the entire staff and I would recommend their services to anyone in need. The care and professionalism exhibited by the office put me completely at ease and I truly enjoyed my weekly visits. I would like to personally thank Dr. Steven Rozov, Kelsey Mieczkowski, and Danny Kim for all their help.

I’m 73 years-old. I had hip replacement surgery on March 13, 2018 and physical therapy was indicated to ensure a proper and complete post-op recovery. I began to check out P.T. facilities in my area. There were many, including the one in the building where my surgeon had his office. Certain factors stood out in my search. What I saw were crowded and open-spaced facilities. Therapists were administering to their patients on tables right next to other tables with patients in treatment. It was difficult to distinguish between the P.T.’s and their assistants. Conversations were going on simultaneously. Patients were discussing matters of a personal nature and/or just complaining openly about about the physical issues they were experiencing in their treatment.

This was upsetting . . . not what I was looking for. Then I found ADVANCE PHYSICAL THERAPY. When I walked in I was greeted warmly by the receptionist. I looked around and saw a spotless facility with private rooms, state-of-the-art equipment and a professional staff who outlined very clearly what I could come to expect from my treatment. I signed up immediately and scheduled my initial appointments. (They even provided transportation to and from the facility since at this point I was unable to drive.)

My therapist was Dr. Kevin Picardo and his assistant was Doug Dzema. It was a perfect fit. Kevin is an expert in hip replacement therapy. Doug is an expert in the floor exercises and the use of the equipment. Kevin would work on me in a private room, tell Doug what routines I should perform on the floor and I would follow their instructions. Kevin and Doug were well-groomed, professional, attentive, encouraging, and knowledgeable – quick to correct me if I needed to adjust my floor workouts. They knew my limitations but at the same time they challenged me to work hard and progress to more difficult routines as my hip area became stronger. I looked forward to going to my therapy three times a week.

This was my experience at ADVANCED PHYSICAL THERAPY. I have now completed three months and will end treatment. Thanks to Kevin and Doug I am free of any discomfort and can do everything without restrictions. I made the right decision when I signed on here. It is a five-star facility.


My experience at Advanced PMR has been nothing lees than Spectacular. From the ease of rearranging my schedule when needed to the professionalism, knowledge and care Dr Rob and his staff provided. It has been 4 weeks since I began my physical therapy and I feel stronger everyday. Thanks to Dr Rob and his staff I can feel confident that my re entry back into the work force will be a seem less and smooth transition.

I came here with severe back lower back pain. I had never tried acupuncture and was wary, but the pain over rode my fears. I met Josh Solomon who took the time to listen fully to my ailments as well as history of my back problems. He then recommended a course of treatment. After my very FIRST acupuncture treatment, the severe pain was relieved. The stiffness in my back required several additional treatments, but within 3 weeks of my first visit, I was fully cured of the pain as well as the stiffness in my lower back.

The facility is located 10 minutes from my home on Route 9 in Manalapan. It is extremely cleaned, well equipped and well staffed and they were all very accommodating in terms of scheduling as well as attentiveness. I am very grateful for finding Advanced PMR and will continue my treatments on a monthly basis as a preventive measure.

The therapy that you administered this last session was remarkable.

While in the gym last night I saw somebody playing racquetball alone and decided to jump in for a little exercise. I figures I would allow myself to take a beating but appreciate the exercise. I get tired of just working on the machine.

Whatever pathway nerve ending or hotspot you located made an incredible difference in my balance, my coordination, my agility and my speed.

I don’t get surprised often. Actually very seldom. If it wasn’t for me being cautious I would’ve even been better than I was and I felt I improved by 100% or more in all aspects of the game. It can’t be attributed to anything other than you unblocking and unlocking something that has been not allowing me to function well.

It wasn’t because ate my Wheaties

Thank you I look very much forward to a follow up next week just I was so excited I needed to say.
