Owner, Jay Bernasconi, DPT, OCS, opened Furnace Brook Physical Therapy in 1987 with a vision of how a successful physical therapy practice should be run. As the clinic has grown, he has been able to assemble a team of physical therapists who guide their treatment by the same philosophy. This philosophy stresses the “science” of rehabilitation while utilizing the “art” that was passed on to him by his mentors. He mandates that all staff therapists attend a multitude of continuing education courses and pursue additional specialist certifications as they remain on staff. He is an on-site owner and continues to enjoy treating patients in need of rehab. Jay has had the good fortune to advise and assist several of his former therapists in opening their own successful practices.

I had physical therapy for my shoulder and lower back with Ryan. He did a fantastic job and helped me develop an ongoing exercise plan to keep my back and shoulder in better condition. Everyone that works there was very pleasant and helpful. All the physical therapists and interns were very helpful and worked well together. I highly recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy.

Did Occupational therapy with Dan for about 2 months. It really helped me come back from an elbow surgery I had. He’s a great guy and I’d recommend him to anyone who is in need occupational therapy.
This group is wonderful! I have received care on two occasions and have been very pleased with the professional care provided. I have successfully recovered from both injuries with the care and guidance provided by the physical therapist at Furnace Brook PT. I was followed by the same therapist for my entire program of care and provided with follow-up instructions for my home care. Kristen Ross, DPT, was smart, responsive and attentive to my presentation and progress. I recommend this group to family and friends!
My therapist was Dan Joyce. I had an outstanding experience. Dan was very knowledgeable in his field. Dan is also a very personable therapist. We developed a very good rapport and were able to work together to achieve the goal of getting my hand back to full function.
I highly recommend Furnace Brook Pt. First of all, the people working there are incredible. From the front desk with appointments and referrals to the back with the the therapists, everybody was cheerful, helpful and professional. Everything worked like clockwork. Specifically, my therapist Ryan Sheedy with help from the interns like Reilly, was instrumental in helping me after my hip replacement. He made what seemed like a daunting process very manageable and smooth. I would highly recommend Ryan and the whole team at Furnace Brook Pt.
I highly recommend Furnace Brook PT. I have gone there for treatment on three separate occasions over the last ten years (all different injuries) and have received excellent care each time.
The staff at Furnace Brook Physical Therapy provided me with the tools and positive enforcement I needed to make a solid recovery after surgery. Always professional as well friendly, the staff made what could have been a dreaded experience a very positive one. The facility is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend Furnace Brook PT to others.
