Patient Testimonials

"I have been to 5 other places in Broome County for physical therapy and not one compares to UHS Vestal. Even after you have learned most of the exercises for your ailment you are never left alone here. Another issue with other places is that there was more conversation than work with patients. Healing pain is the only pain I have endured and I have never seen a time that a therapist was not helping a patient or available for one. These therapists run their behinds off to help you! The proof is in the results. I can highly recommend UHS Vestal for all your physical therapy needs!"
