Marlton - Patient Reviews

Thank you
Meghan is amazing. I was nervous about going to PT, but she made me feel extremely comfortable and is very down to earth and knowledgeable. She was able to help me find a routine that helps manage my chronic pain, and even printed it out for me so I could continue at home easily. She was able to adjust many things based on where I had pain so one thing didn’t aggravate another. She never judged me or shamed me for my tardiness (I’m just ashamed of myself lol). She made me feel like a friend was helping me but was also extremely professional. If I had a random pain unrelated to my chronic issue she was able to help me with that also. If you come here, you are in great hands if you are with Meghan. Shes an extremely nice person and very good at what she does. Thank you Meghan!
Zach Greer
We were referred to Breakthru after our 13 year old daughter had a major knee surgery. She was fairly nervous about the entire process but that changed with the first visit. Her therapist, Mark, was quick to put her mind at ease and while getting her right into a routine she was able to do and actually seemed excited about. After just a couple weeks, she was showing off how much more she could bend her knee and doing many of the exercises on her own.The facility is very clean and with a good amount of equipment to tap into. They’ve always been on time, have welcomed us to start early if we arrive before our scheduled time, and very flexible with day and evening hours. Would definitely recommend!

Extremely skilled professionals & super friendly team did a detailed analysis of treatment plan for my Knee injury, explained how the recommended exercises would help heal the injury, supervised everyday the perfect way of doing the exercises. My goto PT if I ever need PT.
Efrain Meza
The BreakThru team was exceptional. They efficiently addressed my ankle injury from running, swiftly returning me to marathon-ready condition within just a few weeks of collaborative effort. Highly recommend their services to athletes and runners alike.
David Knecht
I had a great experience with Dr. Jake at Breakthru Marlton after he was recommended by my dentist. I feared I would need to see an oral surgeon for my TMJ issues, but Jake and his team successfully helped me resolve them. I strongly recommend Breakthru Marlton to anyone with TMJ-related issues.
Jennifer Johnson
I have been going to Breakthru since the beginning of January. It was easy to get an appointment the front desk staff is always friendly and accommodating to my schedule. My therapist Shannon is excellent. She pushes me to work hard but not to hard where it would hurt my knee. My knee is constantly improving since going to Breakthru and working with Shannon. Shannon is constantly introducing new exercises to strengthen my legs. I highly recommend Breakthru in Medford

When I called to make my appointment, Shelly was super helpful and nice. Her and Tracy at the front desk were always warm and welcoming. My first appointment and evaluation was with Matt. Matt was friendly and thorough and I started to feel better after that first appointment. My nextappointment was with Tim and thankfully they work together so well that I was still getting amazing results. I can’t say enough about this team and how they help their clients. They all really care and I always left my appointments feeling so much better. No appointment ever felt like an inconvenience or a chore. I highly recommend this location of Breakthru.
Joshua Ison
I went to breakthrough physical therapy for about 5 months. They were friendly welcoming and worked with my schedule. I had a torn hamstring due to an AF PT test and was having trouble even taking care of my newborn. I started seeing results immediately and didn’t have to use medication. I highly recommend them!!!

Sue Bintliff
Three months ago I had a total knee replacement. A potentially devastating surgery to come back from if you are competing in a sport you love. Three days after my surgery I started my journey back when I walked into Breakthrough Physical Therapy and met my new Therapist, Dr. Shannon Urban, PT, DPT. Shannon pushed me appropriately and designed a program unique to my goals of returning to competing in the sport I love. I am now back enjoying my quality of life that includes competing in my sport, walking my dogs and bike riding. Thanks to Shannon and the rest of the team at Breakthrough Physical Therapy.
Beverly Neal
Dr. Sang Phan was wonderful. He efficiently evaluated my knee issue and designed a physical therapy plan to help me continue my active lifestyle. The Berlin team was friendly and caring. I'd recommended Dr Phan and his team to anyone looking for relief and strength.
Fern Loadenthal
My sincere thanks to Pamela Bigalow, PT therapist at Breakthru PT in Medford, who has been extremely helpful in reducing my sciatica pain using hands-on therapy, exercise, and stretching to increase my movement and reduce my pain. Pam is kind, caring, knowledgeable, a good listener, and eager to do what is necessary to ease her patients’ pain. I highly recommend her for any kind of physical therapy.
Roxane Lafferty
Physical therapy at Breakthru has been a positive experience for me. The whole team is professional, knowledgeable, caring, and friendly. They are clearly invested in each patient’s physical progress while also facilitating a pleasant social atmosphere. Pam has been my PT and has helped me so much. She is great to work with and has a wealth of experience. And she makes PT seem fun with her outgoing personality. Highly recommend Pam and Zach and the entire Breakthru team to anyone seeking PT. 🙂

The interpersonal communication between customer and technician are great while multitasking in ensuring I meet my daily requirements.

Scott Larison
I have experienced numerous sports injuries in college, knee surgeries and the nagging aftermath as a result in my 60's. I have been a patient at a host of physical therapy facilities throughout my life- Breakthru Physical Therapy & Fitness located in Medford at the Village at Taunton Forge is the BEST and the benchmark for all others to be compared. The entire team is extremely knowledgeable, courteous and dedicated to the well being of all their patients. Specifically, Dr. Shannon Urban and her diagnostic skills, application of the proper stretching and exercise routine to combat my specific ailments and in general oversee and construct a top notch recovery experience tailored to my needs. Shannon and the whole staff at Breakthru has changed my life for the better- Thank you!!Scott
briana mullin
Breakthru was recommended to me from a coworker and I am so glad I also chose to come here. I have been working with Shannon and she is great at what she does! Very professional yet personable and truly listens to what my needs and concerns are. She does her best to adjust to that! The facility is also a great location, clean and calming and the front desk is very friendly!
Karen Tomczak
I have a great experience @ Breakthru. Dr. Shannon Urban has been my PT - she has been able to target shifting areas of concern to help immensely with pain and mobility/flexibility. Professional and personable. Staff in general are friendly and courteous. Never have problem with scheduling.
sam rivera
Matt,Russ and Nick are a great team. They really care for their clients. They are professional, especially knowledgeable in there field, love the challenge they put me through so that I can get better.
Rebecca Metzger
Dr. Fahringer was great. I’m not the easiest patient to treat because I’m impatient and wanted to return to high intensity exercise as quickly as possible. Dr. Fahringer promised me if I followed his programming, I would be back to working out soon, but I had to be patient. I’m now back running and working out with little to no pain and feeling great! Appointments were easy to schedule and the office manager was very accommodating.
Georgi Ekimov
Breakthrough physical therapy has been a lifesaver for me after my injury. I play pickleball regularly, but I tore my calf muscles several times. Nick, my therapist, has been amazing in guiding me through the recovery process. He is very knowledgeable, caring, and professional. Thanks to him, I was able to return to the court as soon as possible. I highly recommend Breakthrough physical therapy to anyone who needs help with their physical health. They have a great team and a proven process that works.

Jake was fantastic. Had an almost impossible situation with my shoulder. In 6 weeks regain 20% range of motion back. Great PT, gave me full attention during my session unlike some PT that overbook. Staff was great, easy and flexible to make appointments.
Salvatore Benigno
Meghan Lanehart is my personal trainer. She is interested in my problem & has helped me to get better.
erin taylor
From the moment I walked in the door I just got a total welcoming feeling. All the staff was out of this world. They were all more than I could ever hope for in a physical therapy office. DJ was awesome and listened when I would say if something was too hard on another part of my body. He worked with me and made sure that all the exercises he had me do would be in the best interest of my recovery.
Maureen Reilly
Had a great experience at Breakthru Voorhees. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, patient, relatable, thorough, and really work with you to incorporate PT into your everyday. I noticed huge improvements after only a few visits and by the end felt back to myself and was given the tools / confidence I needed to continue to strengthen on my own. Highly recommend going to Breakthru in Voorhees for PT!
Steven Koloski
Saw Dr. Tim for 6 weeks at Breakthru to treat neck pain I had for over 6 months. He was excellent! Treatment consisted of heat, manual therapy and exercises. Tim has a friendly personality and listens attentively and then applies treatment- which worked extremely well for me. I highly recommend Breakthru and Tim.
Helen Flanagan
I can never say enough about Breakthru therapy and Dr. Mark Bailey. I was blessed to be assigned to his care more than a year ago. He is so knowledgeable , kind and overall terrific. I originally went to Breakthru after foot surgery. I was in jeopardy of losing my job and health benefits but Dr. Mark worked with me and got me up and walking. Now i am seeing him for my knee replacement. The staff is so very nice and friendly including Kim and the other assistants at the front desk. I actually look forward to going to therapy. Thank you Mark! 💜
Christine Pihs
I am writing this review on behalf of my husband who doesn't use technology much and asked me to post this for him.After a work place injury left him with severe back and neck pain, he was referred to Jake at Break thru therapy. He's had nothing but good things to say and highly recommends them to anyone. He looked forward to seeing Jake and always came out feeling better than when he went in.
Mary Wachter
Zach is fantastic! He is really helping my fiancé progress safely and efficiently through his physical therapy regime for his hip replacement surgery! We highly recommend Breakthru for your physical therapy needs!
Jim Hendry
Mark, Riley, and the entire staff are fantastic and friendly. They not only help with recovery, but also teach strategies on how to remain pain free and maintain mobility after treatment. Breakthru has a relaxed atmosphere that isn't too clinical, and is entirely focused on getting their patients rehabilitated. I would absolutely go back if I need to, and would happily refer anyone else here!
Ernest Baals
Michelle is the best. i have been going since August. and had a hip replacement in November. She has been a tremendous help in getting me back on my feet!! Very professional and very kind!!! Never feel rushed at all. and always listens to concerns. 5 star all the way!!!

Gail Heisler
Working with Pam Bigelow and team at Nelson Drive has been a game changer for me! Beginning my exercise with her smiling, friendly face puts you in the right frame of mind.I have done both pool and land therapy with Pam. Do you want to get rid of those nasty kinks, knots, pulled muscles and sore backs???Go see Pam and her team at Breakthru Physical Therapy!!
Brenda Waters
Dr. Sang Phan was great took his time. Gave me great info and exercise. And explained everything detailed! Look forward to my next visit!
Todd Fahrer
This is a great atmosphere guys are great and actually care how you are doing. If you get a chance to pick where you go pick this place. Matt , Nick , thank you for all you did.
Sara Platt
I’ve been coming for months and no matter what I greeted with excitement. We are all here for a reason, and often times in pain… so it’s nice to know you have people rooting for you.Tim and Matt are phenomenal.
Catherine Harris
I am so happy with my results from Breakthru. Honestly going into this process I was pessimistic about how P/T would help with my type of injury. With the guidance of the Breakthru team, I've progressed significantly in my injury recovery and on my way to a full recovery.
Brian Huber
Short-term pain to alleviate long-term pain. Gimme more gimme more. Thanks Dr. Chloe
Karen Schenke
Wonderful & courteous staff. Dr. Wright and his staff in Berlin are so helpful. He took the time to teach exercises to help with hip and groin pain. Very helpful in reducing pain and keeping me mobile. Highly recommend.
Bri Lynn
Shannon and Bryan are literally my life saviors. Their communication is upfront and comforting. They are beyond sweet, and it genuinely feels like they are happy to be doing what they are doing! They answer all questions to the best of their abilities, and don’t get frustrated if you ask the same question multiple ways or need an alternative explanation. They actually try to find answers to your complaints, rather than dismissing you and just collecting a paycheck. I genuinely feel like they care about me, and my well-being. You don’t get that in very many places now-a-days.I was sent to Breakthru PT as a workers comp claim. My main complaints included severe headaches and dizzinesses. I also stated my left eye kept twitching and bouncing. I told them that MRI, CT, and X-Ray came back negative. Together, they immediately identified I needed vestibular therapy. Sure enough, after my first session, they identified I had left vestibular hypo-function. They brainstormed a plan of action how to correct the issue.Mind you, neurology kept telling me I was fine and just “trying to get out of work.” Neurology didn’t bother trying to figure out what was going on with me - but Shannon and Bryan did. I am beyond thankful for them, and couldn’t be more grateful that they didn’t just dismiss me as another “workers comp” claim. They treated me as a person - not as a paycheck.I am looking forward to further treatment to *hopefully* correct my hypo-function. Thank you so much Shannon and Bryan!
Kathryn Badger
I highly recommend working with Matt at Breakthru! He is not only knowledgeable, but dedicated to making sure that every patient understands the how and why for each exercise. I have never felt bored when working with Matt, and I highly appreciate the creativity and effort he puts into every session. I recommend Matt and Breakthru 100%!
John Karpiak
After going to PT for my knee at a different provider and not getting results I expected, my wife recommended Breakthrough Marlton. I started working with Jake and then after a few weeks noticed an improvement with my knee getting stronger and the pain diminishing. When I regained my strength with virtually no pain, Jake set me up with a program I could do at home. I am grateful for making the switch to BreakThru Marlton and working with Jake. I highly recommend BreakThru Marlton and Jake Fahringer PT, DPT.
Fatima denizkurdu
Tim is a great PT Dr and the other staff is also amazing. I change my appointments the day of or few hours before and they are always so kind and helpful about it. It’s honestly such a great place to go to for PT. I have seen such an improvement with my pain. Thank you everyone at breakthrough physical therapy.
Steve Sonntag
Matt is the Bob Ross of PT. I am his canvas ... no, am I the paint? He's definitely the brush, I think. I've been here and other places for different issues. Breakthru has the most knowledgeable and motivating people.. I'll never go anywhere else.
Timothy McFerren
Professional staff. Would not go anywhere else. Dr. Mark is great.
lynne sergi
Incredible physical therapists. I saw Jonathan 5 years ago. When I needed PT this summer, I knew I had to go back to him. Great results always. He worked with me to get back to normal. He is always encouraging, fun and stresses good form. He pushed me to get the most out of each workout. Breakthru has such a positive atmosphere. Makes the PT sessions enjoyable. I started running again! All the physical therapists are wonderful. Thank you!
Sondra De Antonio, MD
All staff are extremely friendly and professional. Very flexible. Dr. Tim and Dr. Abby very knowledgeable and compassionate.I started treating pain in one body area, developed symptoms in another and each session has been customized to my needs.I have observed Dr. Tim’s “bedside manner” with others. He is kind and gentle with those who need help and more challenging for some. I unreservedly and highly recommend this facility.
Everyone at Breakthru Taunton Forge is great…the front desk people, aides and therapists. Nick works wonders with my scoliosis. He and Kevin are the only ones in the area certified in the Schroth Method for scoliosis. The environment is fun and helpful.
Lynda pack
This is for my husband Ray. Megan is working with him to improve movement which due to New arthritis finding has limited his ability to move. Still working on it..Megan is great to work with.
Jacob DeAnnuntis
Jake is a great physical therapist and the rest of the staff is friendly and kind. I had a great experience and was able to successfully rehab from an ankle injury after months of pain.
I've been going to see Dr. Matt for 2 months for a meniscus tear. He has no only worked to strengthen and rehab my knee, but he works to improve all areas the effect the knee. The entire staff is so kind and compassionate in their care while still being fine and upbeat. I wholly recommend Mt. Laurel Breakthru to anyone who needs physical therapy!!!
Judie Comers
Pam and team were great for water and land therapy. Pam is very caring, patient and compassionate.
Kenneth Gray
My DPT, Michelle D'Armi is OUTSTANDING! Michelle worked with me to strengthen my Achilles Tendons that were weakened due to several years of constant usage and strain from playing tennis. Michelle gave me the tools, information, knowledge and exercises required to strengthen my Achilles Tendons. And most importantly, to keep them strengthened! My Achilles tendons are so much stronger. Stretching, strengthening and balance exercises have increased my speed and mobility on the tennis court. Playing tennis is a passion and a love for me! Most importantly, Michelle gave me new life with my tennis game that was degrading due to my injury. For that, I will always be grateful! And let's not forget about the rest of the Staff: Nicole, Greg, Jonathan Eaton and Jared DeVita. Everyone played an important role in my Physical Therapy! This is the first time in my life having to go for Physical Therapy. My future plan is to take advantage of all the information and exercises given to me by Michelle D'Armi. I have been taught that I must do these exercises daily at home and before and after I play tennis. I have invested in some of the apparatuses needed to exercise at home. But I do plan on returning to Breakthru Physical Therapy & Fitness - Voorhees, NJ on a bi-monthly schedule. Just like going to the gym on a regular basis. I thank my Primary Doctor who referred me to a Sports Medicine Doctor. I thank my Sports Medicine Doctor who referred me to Breakthru Physical Therapy and Fitness. Breakthru Physical Therapy and Fitness - Voorhees, NJ and my DPT Michelle D'Armi is where it all happened! I will recommend Breakthru Physical Therapy & Fitness - Voorhees, NJ to EVERYONE! Especially to all the members of my tennis club!
Ashley Espinosa
Tim is SUPER knowledgeable and talented. I used to DREAD physical therapy and he has found a way to help heal his patients and have fun along the way. Moving forward, if I ever have any injury that requires professional help I will be returning to Tim and this location. #TimforVP
I can’t praise these gentlemen enough! I had injured my shoulder at work & this is where they sent me. I am so thankful they did! They pay attention to detail, care about your progress and are very attentive to their patients. (Their choice of music is appreciated as well) I will continue the exercises learned there as I can see a huge difference in such a short time. Thank you!!
Rusty Scarce
I have been going to the location off Stokes RD in Medford NJ now for about a month and a half. Pam has been with me every step of the way and always on the same page as me. I started seeing Pam for tendentious in both elbows from years and years of damage. I have tried several other routes with no solutions in sight. Dry needles, Shockwave therapy, messages etc. Nothing seemed to work. Since seeing Pam my pain has dramatically dropped and my progress has been out of this world... I would go on to say it has been night and day. Before working with Pam I would be in sever pain just by picking up my water cup or turning a door knob. I am now getting back into the gym and have found such relief. Pam is very flexible, easy going and most of all knowledgeable. Most things like this could be a drag but getting to spend a little time with a friendly face all while helping my over all health has been amazing. THANK YOU PAM AND TEAM!
Mike Ackerman
When I first met Matt I was in severe neck pain from my son’s Bulldog who yanked my arm during a walk. I could hardly move my head and sleeping was almost impossible. After a 4 week rehab Matt was able to heal me. I owe his expertise a grateful thank you! He is truly an amazing technician and an asset to your team! His personality and ability is 10 Stars by me. Respectfully, Mike Ackerman
Joseph Vadon

Humphrey Chen
I have been there for physical therapy for over 2 months now, since my foot surgery. Dr. Tim is excellent and has worked close with me on getting me back to work on schedule. I couldn't asked for a better team of PT. ,
Dan Kennedy
Dr. DJ and his team have helped me tremendously with both my neuropathic pain and range of motion. I would recommend Breakthru PT to anyone looking to get their mobility and pain finally under control.

Very professional staff and overall a great experience. Mark at the Hainesport location is knowledgeable and has a friendly, easy going disposition as does the receptionist, Karen. Never really had a positive PT experience until now.The facility is very clean and the setting is not overwhelming like other PT centers I've been to. Highly recommended!
