ESSMC helped me get back to pounding the pavement quickly!
ESSMC helped me get back to pounding the pavement quickly! I was very eager post-surgery to start running again and this was only possible under the direction of the PTs and access to the Alter-G treadmill. I was “running” as of 4 weeks post-op and was able to safely increase speed and time spent running, reaching a full recovery within 12 weeks. The staff was always so accommodating and supportive! I would highly recommend any runner or athlete recovering from injury to check out the Alter-G. It’s a game changer in my recovery!
ESSMC has been awesome for me
I have had PT at several different facilities in my lifetime. ESSMC has been awesome for me. Marielle and the assistants are terrific.
Feel Like I’m at Home
I felt like I was at “home” with ESSMC.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable
Marielle and her staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. My therapy sessions enabled me to recover at a more rapid pace than I expected. Thank you.
Quite pleased with the staff and with my progress
Quite pleased with the staff and with my progress. All of my questions and concerns were answered. Would highly recommend to all. Thanks for making me feel “whole” again.
Exceptional people both professionally and personally
Marielle and staff were exceptional people both professionally and personally. I will definitely refer friends to ESSMC.
Professional support, suggestions, and encouragement
The professional support, suggestions, and encouragement I received from both the physical therapists and staff kept me on track and promoted my best efforts. Exercises were appropriate and challenging. Equipment was always available and it was a very happy atmosphere which contributed to my desire to work on my program and not only achieve but surpass my goals. My surgeon and I are very pleased.
ESSMC is a well a equipped center and well managed
ESSMC is a well a equipped center and well managed. Beth was my therapist. She demonstrated back exercises so I understood them. She was fun, kind, and considerate of my slow movement. All in all a fine experience.
I am very grateful that I found ESSMC
I was apprehensive as I began my rehab for my broken shoulder. I am very grateful that I found ESSMC and especially Marielle. With her professionalism, expertise and kindness, she guided me and helped me to be able to use my arm and shoulder proficiently again. The entire staff was helpful and encouraging and I am thankful for my experience.
I Always Get Great Care
I always use ESSMC for my physical therapy. Marielle Bonaroti is very talented in diagnosing my pain and setting up a treatment plan. I trust I always get great care. Thanks.
Cheerful Atmosphere & State of the Art Equipment
I cannot thank John and the amazing staff at ESSMC enough for the care given to my daughter, Livia. After breaking her knee twice in competitive cheerleading, we spent 2 months in physical therapy at the only provider covered by my insurance. This provider did nothing to help my daughter and she often left there in tears.
When her orthopedic surgeon recommended John Bonaroti at ESSMC, I made the appointment the next day. I knew from the first session that John’s expertise was going to make a difference in my daughter’s recovery. His hands-on approach was a world away from what we had experienced at our former provider.
The staff at the Murrysville office strived to help my daughter regain her strength in an atmosphere that is cheerful and full of state of the art equipment. I am hopeful that my daughter will not need physical therapy again, but if she does, we know exactly where we will be going for the best care possible. Thank you all again for everything!!
Professionalism & Compassion
I continue to be impressed with both the professionalism of the staff and the care and compassion they always exhibit. John is wonderful in every way, but his depth of experience and his diagnostic skills make the PT experience valuable. He is by far one of the most capable professionals I have ever dealt with.
Always Helped Me Return To Full Function & Good Health
As a senior citizen, I have had the opportunity to take advantage of the excellent care by the folks at ESSMC over a span of at least 30 years. From self-inflicted mishaps to recovery from surgical procedures, John and his crew of therapists have always helped me return to full function and good health.
For my latest injury, however, they performed a miracle. I had a very important trip scheduled but was in extreme pain from sciatica. When I explained the situation to John he assured me that he would do everything in his power to help me! In just two weeks of intensive therapy, I felt well enough to travel and with the aid of my illustrated exercise sheet, I have continued my therapy at home and feel well one month later.
Thank you John and everyone at ESSMC! The fact that you all care about us, your patients, is very evident from our first visit to the last.
Back To My Boston Marathon-Qualifying Pace
When I needed physical therapy to rehab my running injury, I chose East Suburban Sports Medicine Center. Their therapists and staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and the personal attention is extraordinary. They kept up communication with my doctor and worked hard to help me recover and meet my goals. Thanks ESSMC for not only getting me back on my feet, but back to my Boston marathon-qualifying pace!
In The Best Hands
The Penn Hills Staff at East Suburban Sports Medicine were absolutely wonderful! I felt so at home and so relaxed and most important in the best “Hands”! They helped me make it back to normal! I had a torn Rotator Cuff and Bicep Tendon Degeneration. Ugly surgery. But after all their help and support, not to mention my own “Get ‘er done” attitude, I pushed myself every day. Everyone was just the best! Including the front desk keeping my own schedule and able to work around my life. ALMOST back to 100%! Thanks to ALL!
