Cornerstone PT Patients

I know we should be grateful every day, but Thanksgiving offers a special time to reflect on our blessings. As I do so, I feel grateful for the past and hopeful for the future. I also count our blessings at our practice. This month, we’re celebrating our 12-year anniversary at Cornerstone Physical Therapy Health and Wellness Center. I can’t describe how grateful I am for the last 12 years and everything that happened to get us here. Before opening Cornerstone Physical Therapy Health and Wellness Center, I was a corporate physical therapist in Linden. During that time, I developed relationships, worked with a great mentors, and learned important skills in a controlled environment. But the more I learned, the more I knew I wanted to open my own practice. So, in November 2005, with the support of my wonderful wife, I opened an office in Clark. It was a small, 2,100-square- foot space. The first few years were some of the most difficult, as they are for any small business. But we kept going, and by the time our lease expired in 2010, we were able to move to our current facility, which is more than twice as big. “Overall health is a diversified experience, and I wanted my practice to reflect that. Now, I’m grateful to say that it does.” The additional space was a blessing because I wanted to broaden our focus. Physical and massage therapy is central to what we do, but I wanted to focus on overall wellness. The extra space meant we could provide a yoga class, pediatric physical therapy, and pediatric occupational therapy. Overall health is a diversified experience, and I wanted my practice to reflect that. Now, I’m grateful to say that it does. Of course, none of that would have been possible without our patients. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know many wonderful individuals. I’ve even gotten to know entire families, from children to grandparents. I know it’s a consequential decision to trust us with your entire family.

VIP Referral Patient of the Month!


My family is the most important element in my life, and I imagine it’s yours too. When we started our first practice, it was in a tiny 2,100-square-foot space. Now, we’re twice that size! My staff has also been top-notch. It’s easy to work with people you trust, and I’d trust my staff with my life, let alone my business. They are compassionate and remarkably empathetic to our patients, and finding a team with those qualities isn’t easy. I’m thankful for my family’s support throughout the years. I went from having complete job security to going out on my own while having two young children. My wife was up for the challenge, and I couldn’t have done it without her. If I was still in the corporate world, I’d have corporate stability, but I wouldn’t be in a family environment like I am now. I get to treat people as one individual helping another rather than representing a corporation. I can foster better relationships and have a schedule that makes it easier to be there for my kids. I’m so glad I took the plunge and grateful it worked out. This Thanksgiving, I’ll look forward, as always, to family time and whatever remarkable dishes my mother and mother- in-law make in the kitchen. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too, full of gratitude and delicious food.

The best compliment we can receive is to have one of our patients refer a friend or family member to our practice. If you refer someone and we are able to take them as a patient, you and the person who was referred
