At Jersey Physical Therapy, Everyone Is Family
At Jersey Physical Therapy (JPT), their top priority is treating everyone as if they are a family member. The entire staff provides their patients with the highest quality of care possible. This is evident in the smiles on patients’ faces.
Thirteen years ago Dr. Marc Rubenstein, OPT, OCS, and his business partner, Geoff Hunt, OGS, opened their first location in their hometown in South Brunswick. “Geoff and I have been friends since nursery school. Most of our employees have been with us for a long time, too.” Ten years ago they expanded to include an East Brunswick office when they added Sean Moore, MPT, as their third partner.
The three partners have many things in common. They are each married to a physical therapist, and each have three children. Marc’s wife, Melinda Rubenstein, and Geoff’s wife, Jennifer Hunt, both work with JPT.
Most recently the partners opened a third location in Plainsboro in the same building as Princeton Medical Group, a multi-specialty practice. This third location is run by Marc, who treats patients along with Dr. Lindsey Balint, DPT, who had previously worked for JPT as a physical therapy aide six years ago and recently returned to the organization as a licensed physical therapist.
Marc says “the relationship we make with our clients is as family members.” They strive to be accessible to their patients through email and social media. “It is a prolonged relationship. We are big on customer service and treating people the right way while we try to fix the problem.”
The therapists develop professional relationships with their patients and spend quality one-on-one time with them every session. Patients are seen promptly when their appointments are scheduled. The therapists also communicate regularly with referring physicians for the benefit of the patient, and the front office staff members work with insurance companies and stay on top of the latest insurance changes.
At JPT they treat many orthopedic and neurological issues, including neck and back pain, post-surgical rehabilitation due to ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repairs, and joint replacements. They treat a variety of issues stemming from sports injuries and “weekend warrior” injuries as well as working with a wide range of ages from children and teens through geriatric patients. The physical therapists on staff speak a variety of languages including Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, and Gujarati.
Marc, Geoff, Sean, and the rest of the staff strongly believe in educating the community through their “Play for Life” programs highlighted on their Facebook, and on Twitter. Play for Life talks and events this year have included the benefits of physical therapy during and after pregnancy, athletes striving to take their game to the next level, physical therapy’s role in treating breast cancer patients, and older patients struggling with balance issues.
They also offer a home care program for patients requiring orthopedic therapy who are unable to leave their home or have difficulties procuring transportation. Patients with Medicare B are eligible for these house calls, plus they offer affordable rates for private pay patients. Through home care, JPT staff treat a variety of diagnoses including gait and balance issues, post-hospital deconditioning, and orthopedic issues. Between the three offices and the home care program, areas of coverage include South Brunswick, North Brunswick, Princeton, SomerSet, Franklin Park, Plainsboro, Monroe, East Brunswick, and Milltown.
The team at Jersey Physical Therapy is involved with local charities, including Hugs for Brady, a nonprofit that raises funds for children battling pediatric cancer. “We value our communities and try to give back to them as much as possible,” adds Marc. The staff also recently participated in a breast cancer awareness walk as a team.
Jersey Physical Therapy to Open Third Office in Plainsboro
Jersey Physical Therapy is excited to announce that they will be opening a third location in Plainsboro, New Jersey. The location will be at 3 Liberty Street in Plainsboro Town Center. The office will be in the Plainsboro Medical Building and will be located on the 3rd floor, above Princeton Medical Group.
Owner Dr. Marc Rubenstein, PT, DPT, OCS, states, “We had multiple patients driving to our Kendall Park facility from Princeton and Plainsboro and we thought that this location would be more convenient for those patients. Also, with Princeton Hospital moving to Plainsboro, the city is quickly becoming a prominent medical community.” We look forward to being an active part of this community as we have done at our other locations in South and East Brunswick.
The office plans to open in late June/early July.
