I now understand the difference between in-network and out-of-network. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I have been to other PT places and I have always thought they were all the same. Base PT is totally different! The hyper focus on me and my issues is exceptional. Nina is amazing and has made a huge difference in my recovery. My whole family has seen her! The front desk is also very nice and always ready to help — whether it’s insurance stuff or scheduling. I now understand the difference between in-network and out-of-network. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I have been going to BASE PT for the last few years the staff is extremely friendly and professional.

Paloma, Shaun, and Nina have nursed my plantar fasciitis this year leading up to Chicago marathon. Not only did I had doubts about running in October, but the trio has also managed to strengthen my core and patiently allowed me to be race ready in the last few months. I was beyond in belief and ecstatic to run my personal best at the Windy City with a shocking 7 minutes all-time improvement. The maintenance and outcome of Chicago was a confidence boost which allowed me to run NYC with another epic 2 minutes personal best! I have been going to BASE PT for the last few years the staff is extremely friendly and professional.

Very friendly and helped me tremendously.

Great place I would highly recommend! Alex and Paloma did a great job creating a custom plan that worked for me while I was rehabbing after a shoulder surgery. They are extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and helped me tremendously.

It really feels like they care about you getting better :) would never go anywhere else

By far the best place in New York! Paloma, Shaun and the rest of the team fixed my hip injury and my ongoing neck problems. They’re cool and honest. It really feels like they care about you getting better :) would never go anywhere else

Nina, Tommy, Alex, and others work seamlessly to give the best care.

Updated 11/18: Still the best; wouldn’t go anywhere else for routine posture checkups or rehabilitating major injuries. Best PT team in town! Attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Charlene is always helpful in person or over the phone. Nina, Tommy, Alex, and others work seamlessly to give the best care.

Thank you Nina, Paloma, Alex, and Shaun (and Shar and Engie)!!!!

BASE Physical Therapy is the absolute best! They are so friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and clearly care about their patients improving. My first experience with BASE was 3 years ago. I didn’t keep up with my exercises so my symptoms came back. When I emailed to set up an appointment, years later, Nina remembered exactly who I was and fit me in right away. They made sure to talk me through what was causing my symptoms and why each exercise was important for combatting the pain. I was able to finish a half marathon without knee pain after seeing them for only 5-6 weeks. They are incredible! Thank you Nina, Paloma, Alex, and Shaun (and Shar and Engie)!!!!

They also didn't speak down to me or make me feel like I was uninformed.

Very good. Nina, Tommy and Co. were really good knowledgable and explained everything so you knew what they were doing. They also didn’t speak down to me or make me feel like I was uninformed.
