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.
All of the staff at FBPT are incredibly professional courteous. I could feel their drive to help me get better at every visit, regardless of who it was that I was working with. Thank you!
I was very pleased with all of the people here they are very professional and always ready to answer questions and help you. I would highly recommend this facility.
Yes the best around. I have been here twice 2015 and 2018 staff is so friendly. .try out.
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!
I highly recommend Furnace Brook Physical Therapy where I completed 2 rounds of therapy for 2 total knee replacements. Jay Bernasconi and Kristen Ross are outstanding. Their professionalism, expertise, kindness, sense of humor, and firm encouragement helped me regain my mobility and strength. The entire staff and co-op students are friendly and caring. The facilities are up-to-date, clean, and well maintained. I could not have made a better choice for my physical therapy.
Very professional team working and learning . I was treated with kindness and understanding. I also witnessed the professionalism that every client received. This is my second time working with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing their service.
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
My wife and I have relied upon Furnace Brook Physical Therapy three times in the past two years. We went there as part of the recovery process from a) a total hip replacement, b) a total knee replacement, and c) a badly torn shoulder rotator cuff.The common denominators in these experiences and in this relationship are a very patient and professional staff, knowledgeable and thoughtful therapists, constant encouragement, self-empowerment, and excellent outcomes. They have a superb team.We are more than satisfied with the experience.
Every single person who works here are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, making for a very comfortable and positive environment. 10/10 recommend.
I had PT after knee replacement. Run like Boston teaching hospital with Doctorate level supervisors and interns. Facility is modern and well equipped. You want the best surgeon for the operation and the best PT facility for the arduous rehab. My therapist was knowledgable and professional. . I would strongly recommend .
