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.
Furnace Brook Physical Therapy is a teaching clinic, with co-op students from Northeastern University, and internship students from Massachusetts General Hospital-Institute of Health Professions, Northeastern University and other New England universities. We train and hire from within when possible to ensure a standardization within the practice. Our therapists are all members of our professional association, the American Physical Therapy Association, and are pursuing advanced certifications such as Orthopedic or Sports Therapy Specialization, Strength and Conditioning Specialization, Doctoral studies, and ongoing Continuing Education courses.
I had a terrific OT Therapist by the name of Dan, and he was terrific. We got along great and he kept me well distracted while he got my wrist back to where it needs to be so that I can do what I need to do with my right hand. I would gladly reccommend him to anyone that needs OT therapy. Thank you Dan!
My experience @ Furnace Brook PT was wonderful. The staff members are professional , self assured and experienced Ryan Sheedy is a great practitioner and teacher. Jay, the owner is very personable and supportive. I was happy to be able to do PT during the pandemic to assist in my recovery and return to work. The therapy enhanced my confidence as well as my physical capabilities and stamina. The facility was spotless and social distancing appropriate. I would return in the future as needed.
Thank you FBPT!
Began therapy with Dan for a finger injury that I thought wouldn’t ever heal. I had discussed having my finger tip removed with my surgeon (my surgeon was not in favor of that). I began 3 months of therapy with Dan and am happy to say I’ve decided to keep my finger tip. Dan was great at keeping me on track and keeping my spirits up. My finger has improved dramatically and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Would definitely recommend anyone that needs hand therapy in the Boston area to go see Dan in Quincy.
Furnace Brook Physical Therapy was great. Jay was very helpful and clear in his instructions. I was able to reach all my goals and I am very satisfied. The Tele-health allowed me to continue my PT through the pandemic, while not a substitute for in office visits, it allowed me to complete my therapy and I would have been lost without it.
I had an excellent experience at Furnace Brook Physical Therapy. Brianna was my PT and she was outstanding. Besides being knowledgeable and professional, she was also so caring and attentive to my needs. I was always comfortable asking her questions and never felt rushed through my sessions. I feel confident in the home exercise program she created for me and know I will be able to keep up with the progress and success I had in therapy. The front desk and all of the PT assistants were also wonderful; punctual, organized, and so pleasant. I highly recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy.
Every single person who works here are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, making for a very comfortable and positive environment. 10/10 recommend.
I chose Physical Therapy after an injury hoping to avoid surgery. I consider my self very fortunate for having Maddison Grogan DPT as my therapist and advocate. From the beginning Maddison was caring, supportive and honest with me. As previously mentioned I had hoped to avoid surgery. Which was a long shot at best. But I was half way between optimism and denial. Maddison and her crew worked with me in a most supportive and recuperative manner. Allowing even me to see that surgery was the correct choice for me. I consider myself especially lucky for having tried physical therapy prior to surgery if only for the improvement in movement and reduction in pain due to their skilled help. A recent MRI (that I had previously refused) pretty much proved Maddison correct on every point of what she felt was wrong with my shoulder. Her diagnosis was without benefit of MRI and proved to be spot on! My point being her plan for me worked the surrounding muscles and tendons and NOT the injured muscles & tendons! Thereby giving me a MUCH better chance of healing stronger and quicker after surgery. Without hesitation I will return to Furnace Brook Physical Therapy to hasten my recuperation after surgery. As a return patient I whole heartedly recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy. This is not the first time they have gotten me through an injury. I had previously benefited from the expert therapy of Jay Bernasconi's (owner) Furnace Brook Physical Therapy Staff at their previous location. Which allows mentioning how convenient and awesome their new and improved location is! An easy to reach, plenty of parking, bright, sunny, clean and well equipped facility!
Excellent experience. Jennifer Cairns was efficient and effective. My condition improved tremendously. This is the second injury I’ve re-habbed at FBPT and each treatment (both with Jennifer) was successful.
Professional and thorough. No waiting, treated when scheduled. It was nice to work with a medical professional that is respectful of your time. I will be returning for treatment after my next scheduled surgery
Great physical therapy practice! Great PT, especially Kristen Ross. Everyone there is kind and professional.
Brianna was fantastic and super patient as she helped me strengthen my shoulder/neck pain. The staff and facility are great. Would recommend them for sure!
I've needed PT multiple times and this facility and staff is by far the best I have seen. It is clean, large, and has everything you need to work on your progress as you heal. You always have a staff member with you whether they are your regular PT or an aide who is also experienced. Even the front staff is wonderful and so very pleasant. I can speak higher words of this place!
