—Marcy Schuck, New York, NY

"When I sustained a pretty complex humeral fracture from a sports injury, it required orthopaedic surgery and involved a very painful and slow recovery. Physical therapy, according to my surgeon, was key to my rehabilitation. I then faced the daunting task of finding the best PT. Fortunately, I got lucky when I came across Dan Tahany and his staff at City PT.

"Dan does excellent work.... I recommend him to everyone who asks for a great physical therapist."

—Craig, New York, NY

For starters, Dan is a really knowledgeable physical therapist. He has a clear understanding of the body, how it works, and its limitations as well as capabilities. Dan understood the extent of my injury and designed a PT program that has been instrumental in getting me back to tip top shape. It is reassuring to know that my PT has a solid foundation in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. Dan is always able to answer my questions about my body and how it works (or doesn't work)! I always have complete confidence in him as a PT because he gives me clear and straightforward answers and he provides results!

Not only is Dan a skilled physical therapist, he is also a great guy. He is a compassionate health care provider and I witness this every time I pay him a visit. He has a remarkable knack for making all of his patients feel comfortable and remembering small details about the lives of everyone he treats. I see him kindly interact with patients of all ages and all cultural backgrounds. It doesn't hurt that he's multi-lingual and capable of communicating in several languages! In short, he fosters a warm and inviting place for patients to be treated. He also employs a really great staff of hard working and fun PT Assistants. This makes my sessions feel like less of a chore and more like a visit with good friends."
—KA, New York, NY

"Everyone there was friendly, helpful, and professional. I looked forward to every visit. I would recommend CityPT to friends, family and strangers on the street...and have! I almost can’t wait to break something else."

"The folks at CityPT make twisting, pulling, rolling, and kneading of muscles so much fun! You forget about all the pain you had come there for in the first place! Can't beat that. They made me a believer…If you stretch it, pain free days will come. Oh and Dan singing (badly) to 80’s alt/indie rock helps, too! You guys new wave rock!"
—Eric Papa, New York, NY

"CityPT provided a warm, but professional atmosphere and made physical therapy a pleasure – even fun! I actually looked forward to my appointments and felt improvement from the first appointment!"
—Daniel I. Smith, New York, NY

"Dan does excellent work--I have had a number of injuries from major shoulder surgery to small muscular problems and Dan has consistently made me better with his therapy and exercise routines. I recommend him to everyone who asks for a great physical therapist."
—Craig, New York, NY

"Dan helped me recover from an ACL reconstruction, and in short, he is the best. He is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, answering all my questions with easy-to-understand explanations. He also always demonstrates exercises so that you can see (and remember) exactly what you need to do. Dan made my recovery, even those early morning sessions, enjoyable and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a physical therapist! I no longer work in Soho, but if I were to need physical therapy again, I would make the commute without question. "
—R.M., New York, NY

—B.P. New York, NY

"City PT was my second attempt at physical therapy and, wow, what a difference!! My low expectations for a post-surgical recovery were quickly challenged when I began making progress after the first few sessions. Dan Tahany provided individualized, informed treatment that really made a difference. The practice is run professionally and with friendly staff that make going to PT much less of a drag. Great office hours allowed me to get in and out before the day officially began. I hope I don't need to, but I would return to Dan for any future PT issues."
—Elizabeth Schapiro, New York, NY

"I have used Dan Tahany as my physical therapist on many occasions and have recommended him to many other people. Everyone agrees – he’s the best!"

"I have recommended friends, family and co-workers who needed physical therapy to CityPT. I've been with CityPT for almost 2yrs recovering from a fractured ankle (which required two surgeries) and surgery for a torn meniscus in the left knee. I am now back to running. My goal was, and is, to run the NY marathon in November of this year (2010). CityPT and their staff have helped me to reach that goal. Their dedication and knowledge of what they do is impeccable. Thank you so much!"
—Sonia Diaz, New York, NY
