Apply to be a Physical Therapist at 

Ascent Physical Therapy

Ascent Physical Therapist, PLLC is looking to hire a Part-Time progressing to Full Time Doctor of Physical Therapy to join our fast-growing team. Based in North Massapequa, Long Island, we’re looking for a committed and energetic Physical Therapist to provide world-class therapy services to our clients. Success in this role will be measured upon successful treatment outcomes, customer satisfaction, timely and accurate documentation of clinical notes, as well as meticulous attention paid to current and former clients. This role has the potential to convert to Full Time.

About Us

Ascent Physical Therapy is where endurance athletes and active adults from across Long Island can learn, grow, and achieve a life free of pain. We strive to ensure that our clients receive world class customer care on top of the best possible physical therapy care. Our ultimate goal is to get clients back to the life they wish to live. We also provide functional assessments for those who wish to improve their activity efficiency, performance, or the way they move in general. 

We are a low-volume, cash-based clinic where treatment is not dictated by insurance companies. Your days will be spent helping clients one-on-one (not writing notes) to reach their fullest potential. You will be working with highly motivated people who value their health and time. And most of all, your own growth and personal development will always be a top priority.
