Testimonials & Reviews

  • Connie H.

    Joe is an excellent physical therapist with many years of experience. He helped in prescribing physical therapy specific to neck & back pain I had years ago. Over the course of treatment, following his guidance, I was much improved. His entire practice was always warm & welcoming, as well as, accommodating to my schedule & needs. I highly recommend Movement Specialist.
  • Katharine R.

    After visiting an orthopedic surgeon and being diagnosed with several herniated discs in my neck, I began treatment with Dr. Squatrito. In the beginning, I could barely turn my head and wasn’t sure I would ever have full range of movement, but within a few short months, I could move freely and drive normally once again. I highly recommend Dr. Squatrito and can’t thank him enough for helping me return to a pain-free life.
  • Karen W.

    I’m been to Joe for Physical Therapy many times for different things back, feet, etc. Always with very good results! Recommend him to others who were satisfied also!
