Clinic Coordinator
[email protected]
My name is Adam, I am originally from the Syracuse area and graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Nazareth College in 2014. I completed my last clinical rotation of PT school at our Brockport location which led me to work for Agape. I have always wanted to be a physical therapist working in the community where I live and this job allows me to do just that.

Daniel Strack, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist
[email protected]
My name is Daniel Strack, PT, DPT. I am originally from Horseheads, NY and graduated with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Nazareth College in 2017. I completed my last clinical rotation of PT school at the Chili location of Agape which led me to pursue beginning my career here. I played golf for four years at Nazareth College and am an avid sports fan. Since my junior year of high school, I knew I wanted to be a physical therapist and use my skills to help people live the life they want

In May 2018, I attained a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certification, which allows me the opportunity to biomechanically evaluate and treat physical limitations in a golfer. Following a thorough screening, I can identify physical weaknesses (limited mobility, decreased strength, etc..) that may lead to current limitations for a golfer, or may predispose them to a potential injury, and then tailor an individualized exercise program towards those weaknesses. Whether it be rehabilitation as a therapy patient or screening and treatment as a golf client, I would love the opportunity to help you along your journey to a higher level of function.

John Patrick Horan, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist
[email protected]
Hello all! My name is JP Horan, originally from the Albany area, but was brought to Rochester to study physical therapy. In May of 2017, I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Nazareth College of Rochester. Along with working full-time at Agape PT, I am a per diem therapist at Highland Hospital, and a wellness coach at the Southeast YMCA in Pittsford. Aside from work, I am an avid sports fan (basketball being my favorite), a big time movie watcher, and love to enjoy the outdoors- hiking, swimming, kayaking, you name it!

The reason I wanted to become a physical therapist is pretty simple. I want to be the guide for others on their path to recovery. Whether you sprained your ankle, battle chronic pain, live with neurological diagnoses, or are just out of surgery, I want to be the one to help you reach your goals and full potential. The word, “Agape”, is a Greek word meaning, “the highest form of care”, and I look to represent that to the best of my abilities. I’m looking forward to meeting you!

Brian Chin, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist
[email protected]
I was born and raised in Rochester, NY and received my Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2016 from Ithaca College. I have experience as a Travel Physical Therapist having spent the first year of my career working in both outpatient rehabilitation centers and inpatient hospital acute care settings around the country. Although I loved experiencing new places, meeting new people, and the overall lifestyle of travel, I decided to stop traveling and come home to be closer to family and friends. My highest priority as a clinician is not only to provide quality patient specific care but to empower individuals to believe in themselves and achieve their optimal potential. While rehabilitation equipment can be helpful, I believe that my most important tools are my eyes/ears, hands, and inter-professional communication/collaboration. I value and utilize hands-on manual therapy techniques including spinal/peripheral joint mobilization/manipulation, soft tissue mobilization/myofascial release, and myofascial decompression in conjunction with corrective exercise to provide my patients with a comprehensive plan of care. I enjoy working out, hiking, camping, and any time spent time with family and friends.
