Ascent Physical Therapy, PLLC was developed out of the desire to provide the people of Long Island, NY with a superior quality of health care service rather than the usual Outpatient therapy clinic. Dr. Robert Berghorn, Jr. - a doctor of physical therapy, certified athletic trainer, and olympic weight lifting coach - worked for most of his career in a busy outpatient, corporate- and insurance-based company where he found that he was unable to provide that level of service that all of his patients deserved. Not only did he find himself struggling with his people not reaching their full potential but also finding that he would be spending more and more time fighting for services his patients needed that insurance companies were already going to deny.

He knew there was a better way where patients could receive the care they deserved and achieve their goals - He just was not going to find it in the usual PT clinic.

At Ascent Physical Therapy, we understand that every individual is different and that difference is what makes you unique. Therefore, your uniqueness requires not only a specific assessment but a specific treatment plan. Many current, crowded outpatient clinics end up providing a level of cookie-cutter therapy as the therapists do not have the level of time and attention required to ensure you are performing your plan appropriately.


We ensure with our 1-on-1 level services, designed specifically for endurance athletes and active adults in mind, provide you with the highest level of care.  The specificity of your plan boils down to who you are as a person, your goals, and your schedule to ensure that you have the maximum potential for success. We DO NOT treat you as a diagnosis but as an entire person, mind and body, so that all of your fears and concerns are calmed while you are able to physically recover.

At Ascent Physical Therapy, we  work with you so you do not have to worry about getting denied by your insurance or have to worry about surprise bills or fees so that you are able to focus on getting the life you want back.
