"My journey began with Dr. Ira in February 2021. I'm a very active 66 year old who was diagnosed with L5 S1. I was unable to walk more than 20 steps without extreme pain where I was dragging my left foot. I was the guy in the store using the electric cart. I was begging for surgery after 4 epidurals and 3 MRI X-ray's . My luck started to turn after a consult from the surgeon I planned on using with the best credentials at Miami University. Under his advice I quit my Physical Therapist listened to his guidance and avoided the 2 1/2 hour fusion with 6 months of recovery after. Me being so active I wanted to know the next steps to resume life while being very fragile. I had lost muscle in my left leg and wanted to go back to playing Pickleball in the future but how?
Now comes the good part of the story. I called my surgeon to ask where I go from here, I was told to go to see Dr. Fiebert as he was the only therapist he recommends for his patients after other therapists screw them up. I had a consult with Dr. Ira and my journey began. I was anxious to get moving but that wasn't in Dr. Ira's plans. He methodically baby stepped me with specific goals in mind. The facility is clean and I mean clean where everything is wiped down immediately after use. Towels washed all day long. Everyone on the team are warm and really care about your well being. They are hands on to ensure safety but let you work at your own pace for success . After two months of therapy Dr. Ira prepared me for my first test on the Pickelball Court, my core was stronger, my legs were better than ever from the workouts on the machines under slow and steady guidance. I was instructed to take it easy which is no easy thing for me but I did my best to listen. Success! No Pain, the numbness which travelled all the way down my left leg to my foot seemed to be going away. I would come in after being cleared for playing and Dr. Ira would say " So did you play? and how do you feel" I know he was concerned that I didn't screw myself up by the four rules he gave me after my consult, No Twisting, No Sitting, No Lifting and No Bending and the hardest one to follow which is to think thin to keep your abs engaged. It's now been a few days since I've graduated. I'm somewhat nervous that I'll injure it again but know I have the knowledge and tricks that Dr. Ira taught me to get back on track. I can't say enough to thank everyone for the help I had to get me back to health, pain free. 10 star rating from me!!"

"When I first arrived at the Physical Therapy Institute I was assigned Mary Trebitz as my Therapist. I had just gotten off my walker and was beginning to use a cane. Right from the start I found Mary was very attentive to my therapy needs and also made sure that I was comfortable with the exercises that she had me do. I feel that I progressed extremely well with Mary's agenda for me. She was very caring and helped me so much in my recovery from my knee implant surgery. I was extremely happy with my results due to Mary's diligence and would highly recommend her. "

"They are professionals from the get-go. Besides having great professional therapists they are honest when dealing with financials. I over paid a bill because of a deductible error from my insurance company and I opened up my mail today and found a refund check. Now that deserves a big "atta-boy" . Thanks Linda"

"I am happy to write a review recommending the Physical Therapy Institute in Delray Beach, Fl.
My reverse shoulder surgery took place on September 9, 2020 at New York Presbyterian - Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor, NY, after which I commenced physical therapy. My prescription for therapy was precisely adhered to at the Institute in Delray Beach when we returned to Florida in November, 2020 and continued until early February, 2021.
In my 3 months of rehabilitation at the Institute, all of the staff and clerical personnel went above and beyond their expected duties to insure my comfort and successful rehabilitation.
The environment was professional, yet warm and friendly.
The staff, including and especially Dr. Ira, was very knowledgeable, caring and warm-hearted. A pleasant atmosphere was always present at each session.
As a result of the excellent care I received at the Institute, I have regained close to full range of motion and strength. I am happily enjoying my pain-free existence. I have since resumed swimming and I am also looking forward to a return to the golf course!"

"I was referred to PT Institute by my surgeon after undergoing an 8 hour back surgery. Beginning with working with Ira Fiebert and Mary Trebitz I have had a tremendous experience. Starting from just barely getting around with a walker I have made great progress to the point where I can walk with little if any support. They helped me recover at a steady pace and provided more new exercises as I improved. The environment is great as all of the PT's are encouraging and all of the tools you need for continued improvement are right there."

"I went to see Dr. Ira Fiebert at Physical Therapy Institute when I was diagnosed with Tennis Elbow. I had tremendous pain in my elbow and foreman - could barely lift a glass of water. Dr. Fiebert immediately put me at ease with his careful physical examination. He proceeded to explain what was causing the pain and what his plan of care would be. I can tell you that after just a few sessions and a home exercise program, my pain was almost gone. He even suggested I have a tennis pro evaluate the grip on my tennis racket and the tension in the strings. The tennis pro actually built up the grip so I wouldn't be squeezing so hard. I am now back to playing tennis and golf and can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Ira Fiebert and Physical Therapy Institute. If I ever need physical therapy, he is my guy!!

"I went to see Dr. Ira Fiebert at Physical Therapy Institute with tremendous neck pain and very little range of motion. Dr. Fiebert immediately put me at ease after carefully reviewing my MRI report, doctor notes and a thorough physical examination. He proceeded to explain what was causing the pain and what his plan of care would be. I can tell you that after just a few sessions my pain was almost gone and my range of motion was a million times better. I'm not an easy case as I have back and neck surgeries with hardware on my spine. Dr. Fiebert took away the pain and my neck is functional. If I ever need physical therapy again and unfortunately with my back I will, he is my guy!! -Carol B., Boynton Beach"

"Dr. Ira Fiebert is the best physical therapist I know! He treated me for knee pain that has been troublesome for almost a year, after a few visits I was already feeling a substantial difference. I was worried about having therapy during COVID but the clinic is kept exceptionally clean. The entire staff is very friendly. I would recommend this clinic for any therapy needs Dr. Fiebert and his staff are incredible!"

"From the moment you step into the reception office, you were greeted with smiles from Ellen. My husband had a massive stroke 2 years ago. He felt comfortable & enjoyed working with Dr Becky. He said she “Got him” and knew how to push his limits for success. He is now walking without assistance. I highly recommend the Physical Therapy Institute."

"Had my right leg amputated below the knee. Went to a physical therapy
rehab near my home. Didn't have a clue how to get better & walk with my prosthetic? They would tell me what to do & not show me.I wasn't getting better? I couldn't figure it out until I went to PT of Delray Beach. The hands on & showing me I found with the PT of Delray Beach was like Elementary School vs College. BIG difference! The attention, care & concern for me was what I needed. I would rate this rehab a 10+ I am very thankful for their help & being there. (I'm NOT one for writing reviews either!)"

"In the last two years my husband had 2 knees replaced and his amazing recovery and use of his knees is attributed to an excellent surgeon but the end results are all attributed to the hands on treatment, as a member of their family by the staff, their sincere ability to listen to his concerns and listening to my observations, when he was not in therapy. All the therapists are so truly involved in the rehabilitation of their patient’s to their normal life style. They will not push you beyond your limit but will challenge you so you can achieve your maximum normal lifestyle. I observed how therapists worked with individuals on their first visit and how they put the patient at ease with their tone of voice and concern for them as individuals. There is no place else I would recommend. In fact, I am trying to get a friend to come here to FL to have her knee replacement therapy here since it is by far the best."

"This place truly deserves five stars and more. Even before I came in for my first appointment - they helped me figure out how best to get in touch with my insurance company, recommended a doctor who gave me the correct diagnosis after being diagnosed incorrectly for 4 years and then helped heal my rotator cuff in about 4-5 weeks. They are an amazing team: from the receptionist, to billing, to the interns, to the physical therapist (I had Michelle Z) - they all know what they are doing + they are on their feet + upbeat + make you feel comfortable. I had many good matured random conversation with other patients because the way they are set up makes for reduced stress where most would be upset due to their physical injuries. So grateful that I was told about this place - highly recommend it to anyone!"

"I have been going to PTI on and off since 2014. Prior to finding them, i had countless negative experiences with places that were not professional and/or did not provide services as advertised. As soon as I started at PTI, I knew the difference. I have been under the care of Krystal who continually saves my life following flare-ups. All of the therapists are highly trained and able to help, and the staff as well as the owners make you feel like you are part of the family. They also have Terry who offers massage therapy and hands down this will be the best massage for your specialized needs and I assure you it will be the best massage you have ever had. The dedication this staff has to their patients is beyond words. If you are seeking physical therapy you are most likely in a vulnerable time in your life and dealing with pain. PTI will help all aspects as they treat the whole person. Thank you Linda and Ira for compiling a team of professionals I have come to rely on."
