Click here to write an Accolade about Agagé PT.
I was just discharged today (4/3/13) from physical therapy at the Brockport facility, and I'm feeling great! I really had forgotten how good my back and body could feel, after having had chronic lower back problems for years. A fall on the ice this winter prompted me to go to the doctor, and she recommended physical therapy. Because I had gone to Agapé several years ago, I called them this time and was treated by Sean Kelley. He zeroed right in on the problem and began treatment, suggesting the press-ups hourly for the first few weeks while also working to strengthen my core. Sean was patient and encouraging, and able to discern what is going on and how to approach the situation. Thank you Sean and Agapé! I plan to join the fitness club to continue the momentum that I've started.

I was having severe nerve pain in my legs and was ready for surgery, when my doctor sent me to the Brockport Agapé! I was astounded by the friendliness, professionalism and compassion of the entire staff!. They taught me exercises that were easy to do and that worked!! Previously I had found myself on the couch by early afternoon, in too much pain to enjoy the rest of the day. After several weeks under the guidance of Agapé, my leg pain was gone and I was back to making dinner for my husband in the late afternoon! It was like a rebirth! When I left Agapé, I left with many instructions and exercises that have kept me feeling great!! I cannot thank the wonderful staff at the Brockport Agapé enough!!!

I would like to thank Gwen and all the staff at the Gates Agapé Physical Therapy location for their wonderful service. I came there with a referal about my left shoulder and everyone treated me with kindness and respect. No matter who was assigned to me an any day, I always felt that I was receiving the best of care. My 7 weeks, my shoulder is much improved and I can do many things I could not do before, like using the drive up ATM machine and reaching things on the high shelves with my left arm. If I should need physical therapy in the future, I will choose Agapé.
-- Chris Meagher
I received physical therapy for ham string and periformis muscles. My discharge was 3-1-13. I certainly would recommend the facility at the Chili fitness center on Chili Ave to anyone who wants to see results. the therapist,Benjamin Rich was excellent. This is my second time having to utilize Agapé in Chili and I was not disappointed.
-- Liz Parvis
I was referred to Kelli by my in-home PT (I asked for the best) after my second knee replacement. That referral was right on. Kelli is very skilled and able to be both supportive and encouraging. I have recently returned for back issues and have had the same experience with the additional pleasure of working with Gwen. While I'm doing my routines I have lots of time to watch. I am very impressed with their ability to work with everyone from teenagers to frail elderly with the same attention, support and kindness. I am an active 70yo with lots of PT experience. This office is the best. I am very unhappy that both Gwen and Kelli will be away from this office.
-- Sharon Hoffman
I had surgery to my right shoulder to repair a partial rotator cuff, with a large bone spur. I have been to Agapé 4 times, and my range of motion had increased 2-3 times each visit. I am sure that my range of motion would have increased regardless, but nowhere near this level without the proper guidance and expertise provided by the therapists thus far. They have the right mindset in knowing when and why to "push" someone, which can be very helpful and useful. Thank you, again, and see you soon!
This was my first experience with any sort of physical therapy, I utilized the Gates office as it is near my place of work. The whole customer service experience was exceptional, right from scheduling appointments to the interaction with the therapists. Many thanks to both Kelli and Gwen, they developed a well focused program for me to follow and were very professional.
-- Marty (Lewis) Thomas
"I have chronic low back pain and arthritis, stemming from an MVA in 2001.
I have been delighted with the staff at Agapé in Webster. The aquatic therapy program was the main reason I chose this practice, rather than go to one of the two PT clinics I have been to in the past.
The therapists and office staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely flexible.
This is the first time I have seen significant benefits from PT. Now that I have been discharged, I plan to come back for the fitness program.
Thank you to Carrie, Sabrina, Sarah, and Jessica for all your hard work and dedication!"
-- Julia Weston
"I am writing to express my appreciation for the staff at the Brockport Agapé branch. I had previously been a patient at the clinic for a post surgery rehab on my ankle. During my ankle rehabilitation, AJ and the rest of the staff treated me very well- making me feel at ease and providing me with excellent care. At the conclusion of my physical therapy sessions, I was very happy with the progress that was made and the treatment I received.
This past year, I had to have emergency surgery to repair a ruptured disc in my neck. When I was ready to begin my recovery, the first place I looked was to Agapé. I was very pleased to find out that AJ was still at the clinic- and neck certified to boot! While AJ may have been the main reason I chose your location- I really think that Kayleigh and Ben did a FANTASTIC job with me during my visits this time around. They were extra patient, answering all my questions and pushing me to better my fitness at the same time. It was also reassuring to have Violet behind the desk to take all my calls and move some of my appointments around! I want to say thank you to the whole Brockport team for all the hard work you put in getting me better, and wish you Happy Holidays!"
-- Tony Langdon
"Accolade Many thanks to the staff at the Gates Agapé location, especially to Kelli, Gwen, Alicia, and the now-returned-to-school intern Angela. You really listened to me and and provided therapy sessions and home exercises that were the appropriate level of difficulty. If I arrived having suffered a setback, that was taken into account. I also appreciated the atmosphere of friendly, upbeat positive energy and encouragement! Again, many thanks!"
-- Carol Whitbeck
"I put off physical therapy, frankly I did not believe it would help me. I have arteritis in my left shoulder. I finally gave in to trying it but really thought I would end up having surgery. The entire staff at the Webster location was very nice and put my fears to rest. Going through the therephy did hurt, but they were very encouraging, so I continued. They gave me great home thereapy stretches to do and I did them. Within six weeks I was able to sleep without pain waking me. I love the the staff at the Webster location, all of them. I laughed my way through the pain. Thanks you Webster Agapé. I hope I never have to see you again.............Ha! No really you are first on my list if I need your services again and I will recommend youto friends and family."
-- Nancy Knapp
"I have been a patient of Kelly's twice now. The first time was Apage in Chili, and the most recent was at Elmgrove. I was treated with respect, and encouraged. The staff at the Elmgrove Agapé center were wonderful, and they listened. I went in with a badly pulled hamstring after training for a triathlon. Today I "graduated" PT and am able to run again which has been my goal. The treatments and hands on work were very good, and I feel back to normal. Thanks to everyone at Agapé. Your help has literally gotten me back on my feet."
-- Kate Meddaugh
"I was a patient at Agapé on Elmgrove road. My experience with the physical therapist was a very positive one. I worked with Kelli, Gwen and Jessica. I felt the therapy I was given was great for my recovery. I would like to commend all three therapists who were always compassionate and smiling. They helped me get back a lot of movement in my right ankle. Thank you very much!"
"I have been attending physical therapy at the Webster branch after having a total hip replacement. Everyone has been friendly and very knowledgeable. I have been amazed at how quickly I graduated from having to use a cane to walking with no assistance. Besides making you work really hard, we have had a lot of fun as well. I will have the other hip done and will definitely be back. Thanks so much."
"I went to the Webster location prior to and following a knee surgery in June of 2012. Everyone there was friendly, knowledgeable, and made me feel at home and comfortable right away. I appreciate all their dedication to not only healing patients, but also becoming friends. It did not matter who I had for therapy, I knew the care and attention would be the same. I can honestly say I do not think I would be anywhere near where I am today without their help and compassion. Thank you all very much!"
-- Jim Marquardt
"I have been to many PT's through the years and this is the first time that I felt like the treatment was pro-active and hands on for the patient! Carrie and Alicia immediately had my treatment right on track, and within a week I was already back to normal activity. In addition to the treatment aspect, it is an enjoyable place to go and the staff is so friendly and attentive. Kudos to you all!"
-- Chris McAllister
"I have chosen to use Agapé PT many times for myself and my children with excellent results. You get immediate assistance at check in and accommodating appointments. The friendly staff help you through the insurance billing and appointments and you are seen promptly by knowledgeable dynamic therapists. Even though you usually go in some kind of physical pain you will enjoy the encouragement, kindness and healing that happen while you receive physical therapy. Chances are you will have a little bit of fun and definitely have some laughs. The thing I like best about Agapé is its a place to learn about how your body works and how to help heal your injuries. Give it a try! I bet you keep going back!"
-- Patty Yaeger
"I want thank all the staff at Agapé. They made my healing less stressful. I want to especially thank Kelli Hursh at Gates Agapé Physical Therapy. She has a lot of patience with her client. Kelli show she really care for her patience. On many of my visit I see her taking her time with me and other patience. It show it not just another job to her. I don't see her cut or rush thru a therapy section just to get thru a therapy session. It is rare to see that in the health care field now a days! Thanks Kelli."
-- Bernard Yen
"I had a great experience at the Gates Location. Kelli, Gwen and the intern Angela did a great job with helping and answering questions with my heel/foot pain. I would definitely go there again if needed. Thanks!"
-- Melinda McGinnis-LePre
"After a second knee replacement on the same knee, it was time to get back into PT. My first choice was Chili, as it was close to where I work, but even more, the quality of care and therapies offered. I have been very diligent with my therapy and really have made a lot of progress. It has taken a bit longer than I was hoping, but the results speak for themselves. Emily set up a great program for me and continues to monitor my progress and add more exercises as need be. She has been very professional in all that she does with me, as well as the other folks that happen to be there at the same time. She has always taken the time to answer questions and I have never felt rushed by her.
I have tried to pretty much be independent in all that I do, but whenever I needed help, she was there. In addition to Emily, I also want to to compliment the entire staff at Chili Agapé PT. I initially thought that I wanted to have the same therapist the whole ti me, but I have come to learn, that altho some of the techniques differ from one another, the results are successful. They are a great team and I have been very fortunate to have spent many hours there! I hope the end is in sight for hands on PT! I am planning on signing on for another month of training on my own. Thank you all for your support!"
-- Mary Anne Sears
"I worked with all of your therapists during my time there. However, most of my visits were with Sabrina. All were excellent,but if I were to single someone out it would be Sabrina as I spent the most time with her. To say my improvement in range of motion was beyond my expectations would be an understatement. My thanks to your organization and Sabrina in particular."
-- George Burley
"I had a total knee replacement on 6-06-2012. Three weeks after surgery, I started out patient P/T at Agapé Gates location. My first appointment was with Kelly. I cant say enough about all the girls there. Jess, Gwen, Kelly, and Alicia. They took the time and worked with me, always asking how I was feeling, and were genuinely concerned about my recovery. 2 weeks ago I had to have a manipulation due to built up scar tissue. I was terrified to have this done. The girls put me at ease. They always took the time to explain how each exercise was benefitting my knee. They listened to my complaints, and always had a smile, and encouragement. My insurance is switching to medicaid next month, and I will have to get P/T elsewhere. On my last visit to Agapé, Gwen and Kelly were so supportive, asking me to let them know how my recovery is going. I just hope that the next facility will greatly compare to care and concerned that I received at Agapé."
-- MaryAnn McManus
"First let me say that I am so very pleased with the care that I have received during my physical therapy sessions at the Chili Agapé location. Emily has been very patient, caring and professional in every session that I have been working with her. I fractured my ankle over a month ago, and after every visit it appears to be getting stronger and stronger. Thank you so very much Agapé & Emily for getting me back on track."
-- L. Jones
"Gates Location - Great experience. Very knowledgeable therapists. I would definitely recommend Agapé to family and friends."
-- John Cimo
"My experience at Agapé-Brockport was wonderful!!! I had a full left knee replacement on April 9th-2012... I went to the Jewish home for 10 days after my surgery for rehab... and then HCR visited my home for a month. Well then I was discharged from homecare. I felt I still needed more therapy so Agapé was my choice. A co-worker had the same operation a couple weeks before me and was going to Agapé and raved about it. Well I agreed!!! Yesterday I was OK'd by my doctor to go back to work with no restrictions. The water therapy I received at Agapé helped me accomplish this. Kayleigh, Ben, AJ & Alicia have been super!!! I have had water therapy for the last month or more and my knee feels much much better. I have now been discharged from my water therapy and have joined the fitness program for a month. Can't wait to start!!! Thank you to everybody that works at Brockport-Agapé and have been so kind--a special thanks to Kayleigh and Ben who I have worked with a lot for your encouragement and special care. I really have experienced a wonderful Agapé experience in Brockport, NY!!!"
-- Luise Bush
"After an outstanding experience with the Gates facility after hip replacement surgery, it was a "no-brainer" to return there for back strengthening exercises to help me avoid the need for another surgery. I definitely appreciated the careful attention to proper execution of the exercises and detailed record-keeping of my progress. Water therapy was both beneficial and fun. Many thanks to the ever-cheerful and positive Kelli and Gwen, who saw me through to vast improvements."
-- Patricia Herminghouse
"Agapé is a great facility! The staff is very friendly and helpful! I feel completely comfortable discussing my needs and problems with them. Carrie, Jessica, and Sabrina are great. I love the webster location!"
-- Sparkle Wells
"I've been going for PT at the Chili facility after my total knee replacement. I've made steady progress in strength and flexibility the past 5 weeks. Sean and Emily have provided the expertise and encouragement to get me back on the road. I would highly recommend the Chili office, great equipment and Professional staff."
-- Bud Houk
"This is my first experience with Physical Therapy and it was a successful. I had some pain in my elbow and we were able to work it out. Kelli and Gwen were wonderful and thank you so much!"
-- Gene Clement
"This was my first experience with Physical Therapy and I chose Agapé's Elmgrove Rd location based on a recommendation from a friend.
The staff service was superb! Through my questions on the phone, scheduling and treatments I was treated with great care and respect.
The attention to detail given to my treatments were so helpful as a first time experience with PT.
I would recommend Agapé."
-- Tony Green
"This is my first experience with Physical Therapy. You hear all the horror stories... and thats exactly what they are... stories. I was diagnosed with a Frozen Shoulder and had my choice of injections, surgery, or PT. And the good news? It will probably go away in about 2 yrs. I chose PT.
I am at the Chili Facility.... and in 4 months time, I have gone from extreme pain in just moving a computer mouse to being pain-free and back doing yard work!
Emily is my primary therapist, but have also seen AJ and Sean. They are GREAT!! It's a truly positive experience to deal with knowledgable, friendly people who take as much joy in your progress as you do. Each has been supportive, caring and unlimited patience. They LISTEN to you and offer insight into your treatment. You are a real person to them... not just a number.
Would I recommend Agapé? YES.... and I have."
-- Sandi Erickson
"I've gone to the Brockport office for my shoulder a couple of years ago, before and after surgery. Everyone of the staff worked as a team so I could regain the most of my strength, and return to work! It was a long process, but I was finally able to be back at the nursing home, doing what I love! This year I was back in after a wrist injury. The therapists are well educated and are very knowledgable! The receptionists were very flexible with scheduling! Thanks to each and everyone of you! I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!"
-- Kathy Dumbleton
"The physical therapists at the Webster location are great! They have helped me through my sprained ankle so I can go back to sports again. My family has gone there for every injury requiring physical therapy for about five or six years. They truly help you and make a friendly environment and a great experience."
-- Megan Martinescu
"About 18 months ago I went to Agapé in Brockport. I saw AJ Hanaburgh after having back surgery. I still had a lot of pain in my leg. AJ saw me and tested my legs. In no time at all he saw that my left hip was a problem. It needed to be checked out. I did have hip replacement surgery. Now, I can finally see a lot of improvement in leg strength and my level of pain. I am grateful to AJ, as he was the only professional who saw my hip as the problem area."
-- Harry Kaza
"I have been going to the Chili Ave. Agapé for a few months now and I must say there has not been a visit I didn't receive the highest quality of care. From the minute I walk in the door to the time I leave.
My primary Physical Therapist is Emily and I have been incredibly satisfied with this young woman. She is a very caring, considerate, and knowledgable professional. It is evident that she is passionate about her job and definitely creates a very positive experience for me each and every visit.
I have also experienced wonderful care with Shaun, AJ and Alicia!!! Each and every one very good!!!
Agapé is a top notch Physical Therapy Organization!! I have experienced other Physical Therapy facilities and I never received the 'one-on-one' care that I have received from Agapé!!
Keep up the good work and I am grateful that my care is in your hands!!!"
-- Sandi Moneta
"I have been going to the Chili Center treatment facility since my arm surgery for the last 2 months. Emily and Sean have been extremely helpful in my recovery. They have been able to discuss the complexities of my recovery as issues and questions have arisen. They have been invaluable medical resources and a good link to my medical care."
-- Sandra Foley
"I was treated at the Chili Ave branch for my knee replacement, and they helped me reach my goal in a short amount of time."
-- Christine Berardicurti
"I was referred for physical therapy for pain in my right shoulder by my primary care physician.
I live in Brockport and went to the Brockport Agapé. The gals at the desk were always cheerful when I arrived for my 10 sessions.
My 10:00 appointments were scheduled between two therapists, Alan (AJ) Hanaburgh and Ben Rich. At my first meeting I was evaluated for tendonitus and given exercises to work on at home. In remaining sessions they answered all of my questions, and professionally supervised my exercises for accuracy. They encouraged my progress.
The atmosphere there was warm and as new "patients" arrived they were treated in the same courteous manner. Agapé Brockport offers a cordial and professional setting for people coming to get better."
-- Ann Butler
"I was treated at the Chili Ave branch. The professional staff you have there are great. They made my visits fun. They gave me great therapy for my shoulder. Thank you to the whole staff. You guys really made it fun to come there every week. I would recommend the Chili branch to anyone. Again, thank you."
-- Dick Shamp
"I have had the pleasure of the Chili Staff working with me in addressing an upper and lower back injury resulting from a fall at work. To make matters worse, an existing hand injury was exacerbated from the fall, and it made PT on my core more difficult as my use of that hand was rather limited. Rob Kleinberg, Emily Strong, and Sean Kelley developed ingenious methods of working around my hand injury, enabling me to still gain maximum benefit from my PT sessions.
The Administrative Staff, Shannon and Christina, have been extremely helpful; going above and beyond other typical medical office experiences - especially since my coverage is through the seemingly always confusing Workmen's Compensation System. They've made prescription renewals for additional PT sessions practically seamless for me, despite paperwork from my Workmen's Compensation provider falling through the cracks.
Agapé Physical Therapy is a top-notch experience, and I will wholeheartedly recommend them!"
-- Linda Hainz
"Since January 2010, I have had a particularly troublesome knee replacement, an 'easy' hip replacement and issues with back spasms. I have worked with Kelli through each of my PT sessions to address these issues and have always found her positive, thorough, knowledgeable and precise. She's a master multi-tasker and a delightfully personable professional. Her experience and expertise are amazing and her work to carry out 'homework' for her patients is very helpful in guaranteeing a full recovery WITH patient participation in their own healing. I have always requested Kelli when prescribed PT by my orthopaedist and have recommended her to others."
-- Linda Jackson-Evans
"First of all, let me say that I'm just here for the t-shirt. They look sharp and I hear they're pretty comfortable... :)
In all seriousness, I'm here to sing the praises of Agapé Physical Therapy of Webster and especially their therapists, Carrie and Sabrina. First of all, let me give you some background...
Super Bowl Sunday 2012 was not so super for me as I fell off my roof onto my driveway...backwards (The Russian judge gave me a 10 for style). In spite of my best efforts, I did not die that day as my strong right arm broke most of the fall, and paid a steep price in the process. I was rushed to RGH with a subdermal hematoma in the right temporal lobe, a sprained ankle, a broken bone in the right temple region and last but not least, a nasty distal fracture of my right radius and ulna. 10 days after the fall I underwent 3 and 1/2 hours of surgery and had my crushed ulna rebuilt and three plates and 10 screws installed to hold together my splintered radius. The doctor told me it would probably be August before I realized maybe 60% of my normal range of motion. Well, it's been four weeks since I had my last cast removed and started PT with Sabrina and Carrie and my doctor was AMAZED with my progress. I'm already close to 50% usage and my strength is slowly coming back. That said, it isn't easy, this PT process. Carrie and Sabrina may look like nice, sweet, petite young ladies...but when they get a hold of one of your limbs, you'll find that the word 'uncle' that you used when you're brother used to twist your arm as a kid, will be replaced with either 'Carrie!' or 'Sabrina!' Sometimes you might even shout out 'Kelly Clarkson!' :) In all seriousness, rehab truly takes hard work and discipline and the willingness to let these wonderful therapists push you to the brink. They have to. And you want them to. But best of all, they do it all with such joy and good humor that it makes coming to therapy tolerable and even something you look forward to (though the joy part puzzles me, especially when they make me scream!). You know that because of them, you will get better and you will be your old self once again. I am tremendously grateful to them for getting me back on the road to recovery and I want to thank the folks at Agapé for hiring these incredibly knowledgeable and talented therapists. They are not only great at what they do, but great people, too. I might add that you also have the nicest people working in the office at Agapé PT/Webster. Jessica and Sarah have been wonderful to me as I continually call for appointment reminders because I keep misplacing my appointment sheet.
Thanks again to everyone at Agapé PT/Webster. I still have a ways to go but am confident that with your help and expertise, I will recover completely."
-- Michael Cunningham
"I recently finish therapy for a shoulder injury at the Gates facility. I want to express my thanks to my primary therapist Gwen, secondary therapist, Justin (an intern), Kelli, and Alicia who also helped in the therapy. They were all kind, considerate, caring, attentive, and professional in their duties. They made me feel like family in all that they did. Thank you again.
My reason to choose Agapé was from back therapy that I received two years ago at the Chili facility. My therapy then was directed by Carrie Scharett. I believe that I would still have back problems and pain if not for her persistence in finding a treatment that would work, thank you.
In closing, I will recommend Agapé to anyone that asks if I have ever had physical therapy, and by whom. Both times of my therapy have been gratifying and positive.
-- John Jenkins
"In 16 visits at the Brockport office I am nearly 100%. I had knee replacement. The first couple of visits were very rough and did not look good. But, with the help and encouragement from AJ and Ben I leave there today with 100% range of motion back and nearly all my strength back. I have had physical therapy at other places locally but none can compare to Agapé. The equipment is unmatched at any other place. It is extremely clean and inviting. They are not only therapists but they are cheerleaders and really keep you motivated. I also came here last year after my rotator cuff repair with the same results!! Thank you, team! You amazed me again!"
-- Sandy Amedick
"I would like to thank Gwen, Kelli, and Alicia of the Gates clinic for the outstanding treatment I have received for a wide variety of issues. They were caring, professional, encouraging, and wonderful. I am convinced that physical therapists are the Healers!"
-- Pat Wheelhouse
"I went to Agapé Physical Therapy for nearly a year for feet issues and they had me feeling amazing! Carrie was awesome! I will be coming back soon! Thank you guys for everything!"
-- Seth Graham
"Several months after getting a hip replacement, I fell dislocating my new hip and breaking my wrist. Kelly evaluated me and set up a schedule. It became my second home as I had physical therapy 4 days a week - two for the wrist and two for the hip. As anyone knows who has dislocated a hip, getting your confidence back as to what movements are safe is the hardest thing. Kelly and Gwen helped me through that, along with getting my strength back. They were always upbeat and encouraging and fun to talk with. Although, I was very glad to 'graduate' after many weeks, I was also a little sad to say good-bye to two great gals who helped me so much. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gates Agapé."
-- Dorothy Evans
"In a world where people so often take time to complain, I wanted to take a moment to recognize some superior service and great results. I am an athletic 51 year old who set the bar very high for my recovery expectations. I would honestly say my expectations were surpassed by the staff of the Gates Agapé physical therapy staff. I have been there 2 different times over the years, once for tendonitis in my elbows and once for a torn tendon in my foot. Upon my completion, I was working out as hard as I was before I needed therapy and I was also doing it smarter and more well rounded. All members were attentive and pleasant, and most importantly - knowledgable. I would highly recommend the group, especially Kelli Hursh who was there for both my issues. Gwen Wong was also excellent who I met with in most recent sessions."
-- Donald Spany
"I spent four weeks at the Webster site for neck therapy. Although Carrie did my initial evaluation, Sabrina handled my next nine treatments. Sabrina was thorough and knowledgeable in assigning me the exercises I did at home between appointments. While at the clinic I felt the services provided by Sabrina showed improvements in my necks range of motion and pain reduction. I was thoroughly satisfied with my results. Although I picked your service out of the phone book due to your location, I will not hesitate to recommend your facility. Many thanks to your Webster Agapé team."
-- Ed Evarts
"I spent several months in rehabilitation at the Webster Clinic prior to surgery and post-surgery. Carrie and Sabrina were my therapists and Jessica managed the office and schedule. There was constant activity involving many patients. They managed to impeccably transition from one patient's needs to another and never left a patient wondering what he or she needed to do next. I saw compassion, dedication and focus.
When 'graduation' came, I left with fond memories. Jessica makes you laugh and laughter IS the best medicine. Carrie and Sabrina's expertise gives you the tools and encouragement to work harder through rehabilitation. Their positive 'you can do it' attitude and magnetic personalities contributed to a highly positive and rewarding experience. I will both professionally and personally miss them. Through them, Agapé Physical Therapy proved itself not only a place for physical healing but overall wellness. Thank you, Carrie, Sabrina, and Jessica!"
-- Patricia Cheffins
"I started physical therapy at Agapé around November for knee problems and I am very thankful to Rob, Sean, and Emily who made my recovery much more fun and enjoyable. Their knowledge helped me get my pain under control and they taught me how to manage it on my own. I am a lot stronger than I ever was before I began therapy with them. Thanks again Agapé team!"
-- Kayla Lilly
"I would like to thank Agapé Physical Therapy and especially staff member, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Kelli Hurst for the excellent treatment I received at the Elmgrove Road facility. Kelli evaluated my condition and listened to my concerns regarding type, area and degree of pain. She suggested several exercises and made sure I was correctly performing each exercise before I left a session.
I would recommend Agapé Physical Therapy to anyone needing physical therapy and its location is very convenient. Agapé means "Love" in Greek and the staff through hands on gentleness, support, firmness and kindness all displayed love to their clients. Thank you for making an unwanted experience a rewarding one!!"
-- Elaine Tette
"I would like to express my gratitude to the staff at the Webster location.They helped to heal my body with their professionalism, knowledge and humor. I have had to visit the clinic quite often over the past few years and have gotten to feel like they are family. Carrie and Sabrina are excellent at providing the information and tools to keep my therapy on track to a speedy recovery. The front desk managed by Jessica, combined with Carrie and Sabrina have a chemistry that creates a therapeutic experience for mind and body. Thank you for your warm smiles and healing hands."
-- Gary Lindenmoyer
"I have been treated at Agapé Therapy, located in Chili, NY (Rochester Fitness Center) by Kelly, Emily and Rob. I commend them for their promptness, great listening skills, accommodating my other physical issues while treating me for knee surgery. I am very pleased and look forward to going there. The receptionists have always been friendly and professional."
-- Kathy Bolam
"The Gates location on Elmgrove Rd is where I have received treatment. Kelli Hursh was my first contact with Agapé. She was wonderful in treating my problems with my legs. She did all sorts of measurements and suggested what I should be doing for my treatments. I was then given to Gwen-Yee Wong and Alicia Blake for follow up. I should tell you that these girls are an asset to your organization. They have both worked with me and the keep pushing me to my limits. I feel that I have improved greatly and that I have more to accomplish that will happen with time. They are both always pleasant and have a very upbeat attitude and it makes all of there clients feel very comfortable. They are wonderful employees and should be rewarded for there hard work. Thank You for letting me to respond to your company."
-- David Phelps
"This past October I sprained my ankle at work. I was treated at the Brockport facility by Sean Kelly. I found him to be encouraging, thorough in his explanations, and challenging to me in my progress. Whenever our family has had PT needs our first choice is Agapé Physical Therapy. Thank you Sean. Thank you Agapé."
-- Sheila Galdieri
"The Webster Agapé did a fantastic job while I was PT-ing. The professionalism of Carrie and Sabrina is second to none. During the time I was working with them they always made me feel welcomed and ready to help get my shoulder to some form of normalcy."
They explained all of the exercises in a simple manor and why it would help. When making or a need to cancel an appointment it was never a problem; they always working with me.
Lastly, I would recommend Webster Agapé to family and friends. If I need PT in the future I would return without hesitation."
"July 21st 2011, I fractured my tibia. In late August, I was at a local running race cheering my wife on, and at the awards ceremony I overheard that one of the top runners was a Physical Therapist at Agapé in Brockport. I went out of my way to meet this person as I am an avid runner, I was so glad that I did, the day the cast came off on the 13th of September I started physical therapy with Kayleigh Plumeau, the Brockport Clinic Director and Physical Therapist, It was important for me to have Kayleigh as a therapist as she also is a runner, so I knew that she understood where I was coming from (mentally) and what type of program that I would need to get me back on my feet as quick as I should.
From the time I stepped foot in the door to the last appointment I felt like I had chosen the correct facility, their hours accommodated my busy schedule, they challenged me from one session to the next to help me improve my range of motion, strength and confidence. The equipment at the Brockport location is top notch, and all of the staff was knowledgeable and helpful, I would recommend Agapé to anyone who needed any type of Physical Therapy."

"What an experience at the Webster facility! You almost hate to hear that you have been discharged. The staff has a keen grasp of their profession and will work with you and be willing and able to adjust your therapy as you proceed. I had an Achille's tendon issue, complicated by a knee in need of replacement, which proved to be a challenge, and Sabrina Stankovski along with Carrie Scharett worked with me to get a PT program that actually helped reduce the calcification of the tendon without invasive surgery. Also, it was never a "chore" for me to go for my therapy, knowing the caring and compassion every member of the staff, from Jessica in the reception area, to the actual therapists, would have for me.
I will be getting knee replacement in the summer...Agapé, I will you see then!

"After my right shoulder reconstruction I started Physical Therapy at the Gates Clinic.The Clinic worked me through a tailored program containing numerous exercises that constantly increased my strength and movement. During the Therapy I was given professional instructions both verbal and written, (for a home maintenance program). There was testing at various times throughout the sessions that always showed continued improvement. I really believe if it were not for the Gates Clinic and there excellent staff I would not have recovered to the level of strength and shoulder movement that I now enjoy."

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at the Elmgrove Agapé Branch. Over these past two months, I have not only met highly trained professionals, but also have met new friends. This includes meeting new friends with the other patients. I started therapy with the a 95% + chance of having to have knee surgery. Today I was reexamined and released from treatment. This was the result of such professional and great treatment I received at the Elmgrove location. I highly recommend to anyone that needs therapy to come here. AGAPÉ means LOVE. You get this from everyone while being treated."

"I began physical therapy in January of 2011 because of a neck injury I incurred resulting from a car accident in November of 2010. I was very fortunate to have my first appointment with Carrie Scharett in Webster. She turned my unbearable days into manageable days and taught me little things that helped with the pain in the evenings. In early Summer, I began decreasing my visits and was beginning to enjoy some almost pain free days. While on a weekend trip with my family in July, I fell and broke my kneecap. My new doctor said, "You will need physical therapy after it heals, there are several locations you can choose from...." Hummmm? Where should I go? I would never even consider going anywhere else. And everyone I talk to who needs PT, I tell - go to Carrie, at Agapé. She has given me back my life and I am grateful beyond words. All I can say, although it won't express the true level of my feelings, is - Thank you for your time, your compassion and your energy!"

"I have two bad discs in my back. Physical therapy practices of stretching and strengthening my core has made a huge difference in my recovery and resuming my physically demanding job. Agapé PT is a place where they are not only friendly, but very knowledgable and concerned about the issues relating to your injury. They are angels of mercy. Thanks Gwen (and Kelly) for making Agapé a place of physical restoration."
-- Bill Roushey
"I want to put a shout out and thank you to the Gates Office up here. It is my belief that all the offices have great service, since I met some therapist from different offices as well, but I primarily worked with Gates Staff. After suffering a back injury at work, I was scared and had never had anything like this happen before. Every time I was in the Agapé office, I was given great direction from some very knowledgeable people. The staff always seems to be happy, and energetic. You can tell they defiantly love the jobs, and making a difference in peoples lives. From the office manager, to the physical therapist, I always felt like everyone was working hard on my behalf. After suffering a disk injury 6 months ago, I have returned to work fully, and have been feeling great. Agapé prepared me well to return to my very demanding job as a Firefighter. Special thanks to Kelli, Stephanie, Gwen, Alicia, Ben and Jacky. You are all great at what you do, and THANK YOU!"
-- Matthew Nardone
"I began PT at the Agapé Elmgrove site in early August. I met Gwen, Alicia, Kelly, Ben, Megan & Stephanie. The staff at Elmgrove was knowledgable, professional & very pleasant. I would never hesitate to recommend Agapé to any of my friends."
-- Mary Ellen Green
"I wanted to let someone know about the very nice and positive experience I had this summer going to therapy sessions twice a week from 5/11/2011 thru 7/22/2011 at your Elmgrove Road location. I have deformed hips and knees from birth and had major mobility problems at age 57. Your staff showed me several exercises which I continue to do at home and I have greatly improved mobility with Canadian crutches. I enjoyed my sessions and your staff on Elmgrove Rd. including the receptionist was so pleasant. Rest assured you have gotten some great word of mouth advertising from me for Agapé. Please make sure that whoever Gwen, Kelli, Alicia and your receptionist report too sees this and that they hear how highly I think of them and my experience. Thanks again !!"

"I had experienced some very severe vertigo for about a week and had gone to my primary physician to get medicine. Upon using the prescription for 2 days with no improvement my husband suggested going to AJ at the Brockport Agapé office. AJ evaluated my type of vertigo and put me through some positioning' s and then exercises at home and it helped nearly immediately. I am so appreciative to AJ for his professional help. Now if it should occur again I know exactly what I can do to find relief from another vertigo attack. Thanks AJ!"
-- Joanne Scheid
"I went to the Webster office and pretty much worked with Sabrina Stankovski. I had my first surgery in April and didn't know what to expect, she explained everything to me about pt and help me recover quicker than I thought. I would highly recommend there team they were kind and answered all of my questions and more. Thank you."
"I have been working with the staff at the Webster clinic for about the seven months in rehabilitation PT following a leg injury from an auto accident November. The entire staff devised a rehab plan tailored for me, monitors my progress carefully and is very encouraging and competent. I have had both aqua and clinic therapy and would highly recommend Agapé and their staff. I really like the fact that they teach you how to do recommended interventions and explain the purpose of each as well as the expected outcomes. Good job folks."
-- Jackie Walker
"I completed a course of PT 3 years ago for a strained rotator cuff and stayed on for the fitness program. When I began having new problems with my neck and arm, it was a 'no brainer' to let my orthopedist know that I would be attending PT at Agapé. The staff in the Brockport clinic are friendly, professional and truly compassionate. Thanks to AJ, I feel as good as new and ready to add new exercises to my regular fitness routine."
-- Joy Perrone
"I worked with the whole Chili team, but especially with Rob to strengen my core muscles to reduce the amount of pain medicine I was using. He was gentle & encouraging which really helped me to stay with the program at home & in the Chili center even when my spirits were down. I was experiencing a lot of hypoglycemic episodes so he added a break & a reminder to test which caught lows before they were a problem. Many thanks Rob for the work you do every day with others & with me."
-- Mary Korn
"I am very thankful to Rob and the team at the Chili office. I received PT from them after I broke my leg in March, and since then also to help with an associated knee problem. They are kind, prompt, and very knowledgeable about my care, and have made my recovery go so much better. I look forward to my appointments and the workouts that they lead me through!"
-- Mary Harris
"I wanted to thank the entire staff of the Webster location for providing me with superior care during my healing process. I tore my ACL and after surgery I started doing physical therapy twice a week. The therapists were incredible and very motivating, my doctor was so impressed with my progress and because of the exceptional care I received the amount of time I needed to go through therapy was shorter than expected. Everyone at the Webster location from the front desk receptionists to the therapists were wonderful. I highly recommend Agapé to everyone.Thank you again for everything."
-- Laura Whiting
"Carrie did an awesome job with organizing my PT needs and recovery. She is an excellent leader and it is obvious that she is not only coordinating services, but really cares about the overall health of those who attend. Great Experience, Thank You!!"
-- Linda Peter
"I'd like to thank Carrie at the Webster location for the awesome job she did with my aqua PT program. I'm discharged now but will continue to do my routine this summer in my own pool. I highly recommend Carrie, she no only is great at what she does, she's very motivational and make you feel special. Thanks again Carrie, hope I don't need to come back but if I do, your my pick!! Have a great summer."
-- Susan Backus
"I worked with Kelli while in P.T. at the Elmgrove location. When I went to my first visit, she asked me what I would like to be called (Kathleen, Kathy, etc.) That showed a personal interest in me. After about 3 weeks, Kelli told me that she would like me to see my primary doctor and have some tests done. She suggested that I NOT continue with P.T. until I know what I am dealing with. I was very impressed because I'm guessing there are some who would have wanted me to go on regardless. She followed up with me even thought I wasn't coming anymore. Kelli is a wonderful addition to your team. She really cares about her patients."
-- Kathleen (Kathy) Heaton
"I went to the Brockport office today and had a very long talk with Rob concerning my pain and correct action to take. This is only the second time he has worked on me. I must say he was very helpful and I also must say very gentle. Knowing that he is not staying at the Brockport facility, I am glad that I was able to ask questions and am glad that he was able to work on me and ease my mind also. It is always an enjoyable time talking to Rob. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ROB!"
-- Debbi Reeves
"In December of 2010, I fell and fractured my right ankle. Leigh and her staff at Agapé's Webster facility are not only trained professional but they have treated me more like a friend than just a patient. I highly recommend Agapé to anyone."
-- Mark Giardina
"Thanks so much to Kelli and all the staff at Agapé. I have known Kelli for years so really enjoyed working with her. Each staff member that I worked with was very kind and helpful as I worked to get to the point of managing my back pain."
-- Margaret Wells
"I want to thank your therapists at the Chili Center Agapé center for working with me for the past several months. It was my second round of therapy, the first over 3 years ago, and the staff was as great as I remembered. I feel great now. Thanks again.
-- Karen Chamberlin
"I would highly recommend Webster site! The team of Sabrina and Carrie are simply awesome! Not only their knowledge and ability but they truly are great "people persons" who make it a really enjoyable and fun experience. I've gone to the Webster site for two knee replacements and a shoulder issue and have experienced great results. Oh yeah - can not forget Jessica who greets you at the desk and really in charge of Carrie and Sabrina (LOL) does a super job. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would give them a 12!!"
-- Alan Granger
"I have been treated at the Brockport Agapé Physical Therapy building for the past several weeks. I had knee surgery on October 31st and my knee is still swelling and was really weak. I had the privilege of having Sean as my Therapist. I found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, and he pushed me just the right amount and challenged me so that I was working hard, but would not get discouraged. He was extremely encouraging and kept telling me that it will just take time, but that it will get better. I appreciated his time and patience with me. I also had the privilege of working with A.J. a couple of times, and he too, was extremely professional and helped me as well. I commend all of the people at the Brockport Building. The receptionists were so kind, caring and helpful with appointments. and with any questions that I had. I will and have recommended anyone that needs therapy, to go to Agapé! What could have been a "painful" experience, was made so much better by the caring people that you have working in Brockport!"
