"I was very impressed when I first walked into Repsher & Associates with the front end staff and facilities.

On October 6th, 2015, one of our patients gave us the ultimate testimonial. She presented us with a cookie skeleton, thanking us for the excellent care she received at our office. The cookie bones were glued to the board by icing. We enjoyed her treat and appreciate her thoughts regarding our office.


"My experience with Repsher and Associates Physical Therapy was very helpful. John was my therapist and he is very good. He worked with me from my lowest point to my highest. I highly recommend Repsher to anyone who needs therapy. They are excellent. Thanks very much for all your help. I love you all and enjoy working with you."

"Shane was my therapist. He was extremely knowledgeable about my injury. He explained the knee anatomy thoroughly. He was friendly. This was my third time receiving physical therapy, two times at other facilities. This was the only time that I ever got relief and continued to make progress. I would highly recommend Shane."

-Dianne D., Albany, NY


"Clone Joyce - She is an amazing PT and has made a major difference in my functional life."

-Jen M., Physical Therapist, Troy, NY



"I am a recent left, below the knee amputation. I also had a knee replacement on my right knee. I have spent the last year in and out of the hospital and 6 months in rehab. When I came to Repsher and Associates, I was very deconditioned. I have been working with Joyce for the past month. I feel I have made great improvements. I am now walking with a cane. Repsher and Associates has helped me a great deal."

-Kathryn B., Albany, NY


"Dear John,

      Please accept my most sincere compliments to you and your staff for offering a premier physical therapy facility. My experience with Repsher & Associates has been exceptional.

      When I had my ACL reconstruction in March, I couldn't have imagined the length of my recovery. Coming to your clinic turned out to be the best decision I could have made to facilitate my recovery.

      I, wholeheartedly, appreciate you personally guiding me through the beginning of my rehab. Your experience and dedication will never be forgotten."

I can't thank you enough on what you've done for me. It's been a very very long road for me and I honestly don't think I could've done it without you. You are AMAZING at what you do, you take the time to listen and give the best honest answer whether we want to hear it or not. I may still be sore but I feel GREAT! I love the fact that I can walk again with no pain. I give you 2 thumbs up for every stretch possible and exercise we had done to make my life 100 times better. I promise you I'll keep working at it and get my hip/leg where it should be. Like I said before and can't say it enough.. THANK YOU!!! If I need you I know where to find you."

-Rachel, Cohoes, NY


"I cannot begin to thank you all for your kindness and support through my recovery. One year ago, I was training to surprise my daughter to race the turkey trot, and as you know, I was hit by a car when I was running. It is nothing short of a miracle that I survived but it was a long road ahead of me.

Never thought I'd be able to feel well enough to try to run again.. but that is where you all came into my life. And it is because of your patience and support and encouragement, that I was able to run the turkey trot with both my daughters, Kate and Tessa, this Thanksgiving!

Truly a blessing. Thank you for everything. Special thanks to Corey, Matt, and John. Thank you for giving me my life back. Wishing all of you and your families a Happy Holiday!"

-Paula C., Latham, NY


"I am overly satisfied with the quality and level of service and care I received from Steve Cornell at Repsher & Associates Physical Therapy. Steve answered my every question and rid me of every ounce of doubt. I progressed through therapy quicker than I expected because I made sure to follow his every suggestion and to perform my assigned PT activities every night. Steve has made me a true believer to the healing process of physical therapy."

-Bethani M., Albany, NY


"Repsher Physical Therapy is the best. The front desk staff are welcoming, friendly, and helpful. They are helpful and patient when working with a client to find times that are good for the client and therapist. I work with Corey, he is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I never feel rushed or that I'm just someone on a busy schedule. I am starting to feel better with his multi-pronged approach to my pain. We always build our routine each week. The appointments are always prompt which helps during a work day!"
