Apply to be a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist at Ascent Physical Therapy

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.

About Our Founder:

 

Dr. Robert Berghorn, Jr. has over 10 years of experience as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. As both an active runner and triathlete, Dr. Rob established Ascent Physical Therapy to be THE premiere Long Island based clinic geared towards the endurance athlete community. Dr. Rob is a growing celebrity in the field, especially on Long Island, and is looking to increase his impact in the community via APT’s expansion.

We are currently seeking a committed and energetic Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist to join our dynamic team. Success in this role will be measured by successful treatment outcomes, customer satisfaction, timely and accurate documentation of clinical notes, as well as meticulous attention paid to current and former clients.
