Agape Physical Therapy

Preventative Care

One of the most common misconceptions about physical therapy is that you need to have surgery or a significant injury in order to participate.  This could not be further from the truth!  

One of our primary missions at Agape is to promote and practice preventative care.  Many of the musculoskeletal injuries that are treated in our clinics are preventable and present with warning signs (usually in the form of pain or dysfunction) that can be identified by a doctor of physical therapy.  Are you listening to your body?  

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort during or after any activity it is likely your body is trying to warn you of impending tissue damage.  These may be symptoms you are experience at work, during recreational activity or even just daily tasks.  This is the perfect time to be evaluated by a physical therapist who can help you avoid further injury.  Often times there is a simple fix.  You may need a postural correction, a body mechanics adjustment, a manual therapy applied or a home stretching program.  

Are you a runner who is fighting a nagging injury?  Use the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill for reduced body weight training and have a physical therapist analyze your running gait.  

Have you been losing your balance and are worried that you may experience an injury due to a fall?  Have your balance and fall risk assessed at our facilities.  

Have you noticed back and neck pain while sitting at your desk at work?  Have your posture assessed and have your physical therapist create a stretching routine for you to complete at your desk.

Are you noticing shoulder pain when reaching overhead and putting on your coat?  Prevent a rotator cuff injury by working on your shoulder mechanics with a physical therapist.  

Worried about a physician referral or insurance coverage?  Not necessary!  Direct access gives you access to physical therapy care without a physician referral and is covered by the majority of insurance plans.  

What can we help you with?  Contact us before your pain turns into injury. 

I'm not a huge fan of physical therapy, but the Agape in Chili is the best. I've been to several different physical therapy locations/businesses not related to Agape and I can honestly say this location has THE BEST staff including Violet (the receptionist)!!! They are very caring, knowledgeable, and will challenge you if you request. I wanted to be challenged and JP Horan did just that. I couldn't have gotten such awesome results from anyone else!
Physical Therapy
I started feeling better from a pinched nerve within the first week, but Justin kept working with me to make sure I would get stronger! Had a minor setback, but again he quickly got me back on track!
Physical Therapy
I had a terrific experience working with Justin Farnsworth at Agape. Justin explained everything very clearly and was knowledgeable about the latest studies. He was sensitive to when I got tired and had great suggestions which helped me recover from a broken leg. I highly recommend him.
Physical Therapy
I just completed a month of physical therapy at Agape's Chili branch and I was extremely pleased with my experience at the facility, as well as working specifically with Adam. I appreciated how he listened carefully to my situation, how he was extremely knowledgeable, how he perfectly tailored my therapy to address my issue, how he carefully guided me through each exercise, and how he made my time at the facility very worthwhile. Adam treated me respectfully and was very encouraging. I have been dealing with lower back pain for years and I finally feel there is hope! I highly recommend Agape - Chili to anyone who is in need of physical therapy. In my opinion, they are the best in the Rochester area!!
Physical Therapy
I've felt much better and less pain since coming here. Chelsea was very helpful and Kate was too.
Physical Therapy
These guys are the best! Very knowledgeable, Justin and Trevor have a certain finesse about pushing you to your limits at just the right times for the fastest recovery possible. They are both kind, caring and listen carefully to any of your concerns. If I ever need any other therapy, I will definitely be coming back here.
Physical Therapy
Had a great experience! Everyone was incredibly nice and easy to work with.
Physical Therapy
Adam is an excellent therapist. He used several techniques including cupping and other exercises. He helped my problem areas immensely!
Physical Therapy
A month-long problem with increasing pain and limited range of motion in my right shoulder finally motivated me to seek help from PT. Just so you know, if you're a senior citizen like me with only Medicare for insurance, they did require a prescription from my primary care physician first. Chris Greene's help was an answer to prayer. He was kind, encouraging, patiently willing to answer questions and to explain what I needed to understand when I had concerns, plus accessible outside of the clinic if needed. (You can email or text if you need to clarify something about your exercises, are running late, etc.). Besides that, he's funny! As I also observed Natalia working with clients, it's evident that both she and Chris are compassionate therapists who really have a heart to help heal and restore hurting people so they can function at their best. The client advocates at the reception desk were great too--Katelyn, Alyssa, Dalpreet, and Robin, who was so helpful in explaining the details of the billing process with Medicare. Thanks, all you guys! You get 5 stars and then some! :)
Physical Therapy
Great experience. Will use them again after my next surgery.

I recently attended Agape Physical Therapy after a head injury & suffering from migraines. Daniel was knowledgeable & persistent in treating the cervicogenic headaches. I walked out of the clinic last night after a progress report. My improvements in both my strength & pain levels were significant. I can’t thank Daniel & the staff of Agape Physical Therapy enough!
Physical Therapy
I have been in and out of physical therapy MULTIPLE times for the last decade,(I have Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome - Type 3, Hypermobility) and until finding Agape was unsatisfied with anywhere else I had gone in Rochester or Buffalo. I’ve seen other wonderful therapists at Agape, but Daniel is the physical therapist that “gets me” as a runner - and has worked with me in making sure I am staying HEALTHY and strong while working towards of goal of either - getting BACK to running or training. In Spring - I went to Agape for extreme plantar fasciitis in both feet, posterior tibial tendinitis in both legs AND an intercostal and paraspinal strain - I felt wrecked, physically and mentally. And of course, I had a race I really really wanted to run - instead of telling me no from the get-go, Daniel worked on different exercises to be able to get me to a safe place to run the race healthy. I finished my first 10k ever, and couldn’t have done it without him! I continued my at home program but was sidelined again by my plantar fasciitis and was on strict no running, rest from my doctor. I spent all of June and July, pretty much miserable with being unable to run and not really seeing any TRUE progress - I reached out to Daniel, who despite not having me as a patient at the time, answered some questions for me and gave some suggestions to bring up to my podiatrist. Finally, on July 26th I WAS CLEARED TO RUN - and the crazy, won’t let go of my goal, side of me signed up for the Rochester Half Marathon - giving myself exactly 8 weeks to race day - I called Agape and lovely Violet got me back on Daniel’s schedule again. The last two months have been hard training wise, but my plantar fasciitis is TRULY improving, despite running, and my posterior tibial tendonitis is pretty much gone. I don’t think I would have been able to sign up and train for the race, had it not been for Daniel’s ingenuity of exercises and adopting a program to meet my needs. I am lucky to find a PT who supports my crazy goals - even when they seem a bit far-fetched.
Physical Therapy
I used the "Direct Access" program at the Penfield Agape location and was very pleased. I got immediate care without a referral. I would suggest this to anyone. The facility is modern and very clean. Most importantly, I worked with true professionals that were always friendly, and willing to help. My PT, Chris Greene, showed a passion for his craft, his only concern was that my condition improve. He was a great teacher and made sure I learned the techniques so I don't have to go back.
Physical Therapy
Trevor really helped me these last 12 weeks after my shoulder surgery... Treated like family while I was there
Physical Therapy
I enjoyed going to physical therapy at Agape. The atmosphere was always positive and cheerful. Joe, my PT, was amazing and helped me so much. I'd highly recommend Agape.
Physical Therapy
I had a great experience with Natalia at this location! She was easy to work with, caring, and helped me learn about my body and how to heal it. I would highly recommend her, especially if you are pregnant or postpartum and want to get into regular exercise again.
Physical Therapy
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Adam and the rest of the staff at the Chili location. I was told that surgery was the best option for chronic neck pain & carpal tunnel symptoms. After just a couple months of working with Adam, my mobility and sensation has improved tremendously. I am now able to again enjoy my hobbies, perform my job well, and sleep so much better than just a short time ago. Thank you, Adam! And thank you to the rest of the wonderful staff at Agape!
Physical Therapy
Natalia Farnsworth was instrumental in addressing my weak core and back pain during and after my pregnancy. She was easy to work with, very thorough, and detail oriented. The location is clean, bright, and well equipped . And they were always accommodating to me bringing my kids to appointments. I would highly recommend working with her!
Physical Therapy
Justin and team are true professionals and know their stuff. I was very impressed with the no-nonsense approach to rehab: put in the work and you will feel better and be better. Thank you very much! I have recommended several people to Agape already and will continue to do so without hesitation.
Physical Therapy
They were very helpful and made sure my mother understood every step of the process. Everyone was so friendly from the receptionist to the physical therapist. A great place where you can feel at ease, that your loved ones are receiving the highest level of care.
Physical Therapy
Natalia was a great therapist to work with. I always felt comfortable with her and she always had concern for my viewpoint and how I was feeling. She worked with me and responded to my feedback to help me and solve the problems I was having. She gave me suggestions and exercises to do at home as well as creative and effective exercises to do during our sessions together. Thank you Natalia!
Physical Therapy
The Agape Physical Therapy-Chili met all my expectations of effective therapy. I went to them for two separate events and both times JP was understanding, flexible and kind. He always found a way to get the result I needed. The site is clean, there are multiple pieces of equipment and the staff are all friendly (here's looking at you, Violet). Would definitely recommend and I will return if another joint requires their excellent care.
Physical Therapy
The staff and PT personnel are amazing. Justin F. & Trevor are awesome, routined, treated me like family. Both are very knowledgeable with sports which makes the overall experience awesome beyond words. These gentlemen will get your body back to 100% I guarantee it.
Physical Therapy
It was fourteen years ago that I found myself flying through the air, me attached to my bicycle by sheer force and gravity. Time, definitely slows down just before an impact like mine. I felt each bounce as my whole body rose in the air and landed on the hard limestone rock that made up the mountain bike trails in Texas. Yes, that really happened and needless to say numerous Dr.’s, Physical Therapists and Chiropractors have been trying to help me heal since. I had just about given up the hope of recovering to live a quality pain free life. One where I could walk, ride my mountain bike, backpack into the forest with all my gear to camp and do it pain free. I decided to try one more time, that is when I was referred to Natalia Farnsworth, PT, DPT, CAFS. Under Natalia’s care and supervision I found muscles and strength I hadn’t felt since my accident. Thanks to Natalia I am on my road to recovery!!! I have started riding my mountain bike again and have been hiking, though I’m not ready to wear a pack yet, I’m getting there! Natalia is the first PT to actually give me a full assessment and create a real plan of action. It is that plan and hard work that has helped me get this far and with dedication, determination and Natalia’s expertise I will succeed in being the best I can be in physical health.
Physical Therapy
Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I had a total knee replacement. They were extremely helpful in my care. Catherine is amazing. She pushed me and was able to assist in spedding up my recovery. Thank you Agape and Catherine!
Physical Therapy
Just wanted to say thank you. Chris was a great help. Since PT this past winter I can actually ride my bike 7 miles with no pain. Knees feel swollen sometimes after, but I'm moving. I still do the pt Chris showed me; hopefully right. Lol. Awesome.
Physical Therapy
I have had the pleasure to be treated at this branch 3 times. There is nothing bad that I can say about the staff. Best in the city!!!
Physical Therapy
My chiropractor sent me to Agape for muscular pain I'd been having. After finding out that its cause was because I frequently hunch over my desk and my craft projects, I hardly thought physical therapy would help me much since I've been hunched for years. After working with Trevor Stutz who took such great care of me, the results are nothing short of amazing! After 6 visits, not only is my back pain gone, but my muscles are actually much stronger than I could have imagined. My sleep is better and my body has been retrained into better posture. I am no longer in agony when sitting in the car for long periods, and can enjoy walking again. Thank you so much Agape!
Physical Therapy
I felt like Natalia took a genuine interest in my issues, myself, and my life - I wasn't just another patient on her schedule. I have been to PT for previous issues and I hated when the PT would just put me on a machine and walk away for 15 minutes. I never felt that way with Natalia; she checks in with me continuously, sits with me to discuss my plan of action and worked to problem-solve my issues. Hopefully, I won't need any PT in the future, but they will be my first call!
Physical Therapy
I was incorrectly diagnosed with fibromyalgia after lifelong diagnosis with Crohn’s disease which led to Rheumatoid and arthritis and a lifetime of chronic pain. I have been to two physical therapist before and I was always very doubtful that they could make a difference or even work. I went to the first one in the hospital and it was filthy and it feel as though the physical therapist who is clumsy and uneducated. The second physical therapist had been a student of mine at a college in Buffalo and I hate to say it but this was the most uneducated person I’ve ever come across. My husband had been to Agape before and highly recommended I try it. I asked my doctor to switch my physical therapy over to Agape and Penfield and boy was I thrilled. Dr. Christopher Greene had been a huge help from the moment I met him. We both agreed that fibromyalgia was not the major cause of my pain but rather the Arthritis was causing the majority of my fatigue and he had just the kind of exercises That would get me back on my feet literally. After six weeks I was able to climb a flight of stairs without hanging onto the side rails for dear life. Within 12 weeks I could actually open a jar that no one in my family put open. Within three months I could keep up with my marathon husband and actually felt shocked that I enjoyed working out again. After I’m done with Dr. Green I plan on continuing to work at the center in Penfield and paying a monthly fee so I know that I won’t hurt myself we can stay fit enough to continue working for a long time to come. All of this is things to Dr. Green!
Physical Therapy
My daughter went to Justin Farnsworth for her physical therapy. She had an amazing experience and had wonderful results. I highly recommend this practice!
Physical Therapy
The staff at the Chili office was awesome! I had Maddy as my PT and she was great!! I had a 10 visit prescription to rehab my shoulder and was released after only 7. Entire staff was friendly and caring including the receptionist Violet who always asked how I was doing.
Physical Therapy
My mother who is 98 went to the Chili for PT and was treated by Maddie. I wanted to tell you that Mom was very pleased. The therapist was very kind and competent. Mom felt like she was helped a lot.
Physical Therapy
Everyone at Agape Physical Therapy in Greece was very helpful and nice to work with. Justin does an amazing job teaching you the stretches and strengthening exercises to help you reduce any pain you may be experiencing. I highly recommend the Greece Agape if you are looking to do physical therapy for any injury.
Physical Therapy
I am a 59 year old man who has struggled with a bad back my entire life. I recently visited Agape Physical Therapy in Greece to help me loosen up my upper and lower back and I am amazed by the results I've experienced in just a few visits. The facility is clean, the equipment is new and the staff is extremely hospitable. My PT is Justin Farnsworth and I can't say enough about his knowledge, professionalism, people skills and the results he has gotten me in such a short time!
Physical Therapy
The Best physical therapy in Rochester! Very good therapists, they know their stuff, and very educated! Michael and his staff does really well. I refer all to go here. I went to other therapies and left because they had unsupervised students working on me and made things worse.
Physical Therapy
Many thanks to Adam Krahmer for his patience, expertise in helping me to deal with my recent ankle fracture.
Physical Therapy
Excellent job by Natalia at Penfield. I'm back in the game in record time. I would recommend to anyone with a sports related injury. Thank you! Five Stars
Physical Therapy
What a professional organization. Great people that are given the highest level of training and education to serve the physical therapy needs. They also have state of the art equipment to put you back on your feet and feeling great.
Physical Therapy
Natalia at The Penfield Agape location is amazing!!! She has changed my life showing me ways to manage my chronic back pain, instead of just going through the motions she is actually giving me new ways to use muscles in my body and not strain my back. It’s my favorite appointment of the week :)
Physical Therapy
I sustained a serious knee injury and I was in need of good physical therapy in order to return back to my professional career. When I started at Agape I knew I was in the right place. All the therapists are incredibly knowledgeable and kind in their approach, while also giving you the push that is needed to return back to your desired profession or quality of life that you're seeking. The surgery that I underwent was relatively new and very innovative. My physical therapist, Chris Greene, did research to understand that surgery and familiarize himself with the treatment best needed to get me back to my professional career. He has truly gone above and beyond to get me back to where I was prior to my surgeries. All of the physical therapists at Agape are great, but I would strongly recommend working with him! I'm blessed to have found a place that is not only welcoming but encouraging during what can be such a difficult point. Agape Physical Therapy is excellent and I strongly recommend them for any injury or recovery you may be going through.
Physical Therapy
My friend recommended Stephen Fose when I had an ankle hairline fracture and I am so glad I went to see him. He knew exactly how to handle my injury and I only had to go to therapy a couple weeks and was back on my feet. Then I broke my wrist so I was back with Stephen for therapy which took a little longer since it was a break. He worked on twisting, weights and then he would massage my wrist. He would apply heat to loosen up my wrist then apply a cool pack before I left the office. I have to say I am 100% healed after his help! Thank you Stephen and the office staff that work there.
Physical Therapy
Natalia is warm, intelligent, highly competant and a pleasure to work with. I am thrilled to be out of pain, but actually sad not to see her each week. I would highly recommend her to anyone with PT needs. Thank you Agape and Natalie for all that you do help me.
Physical Therapy
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to all of the members at the office in chili. I just completed my therapy as of today,I knew from the day I walked into that office, until the last day that I left,I made the best decision that I could have made. My therapist Adam went above and beyond what I was expecting. Everyone in that office at one time or other, played a part in my rehab. So, at this time I would like to thank everyone for all that you did for me. I am truly grateful.
Physical Therapy
I was recently in a car accident and was referred to agape by my doctor. I have been attending this treatment center for the last several months. In my opinion there is no finer staff you will find. From the moment you walk thru the doors you will find a worm friendly atmosphere. a friendly professional & knowledgeable team of healers who take your care seriously. I have seen each in action and can say with great conviction they are of the highest integrity. If you are reading this and thinking about treatment look no further you will not be disappointed as the staff will make you feel at home and work diligently to resolve your pain and improve your quality of life.
Physical Therapy
I had the pleasure of working with JP in the Gates office. His guidance and leadership helped my healing. He really knows his stuff. I highly recommend him and Mike. Mike is a great leader and I know JP will no doubt be a great leader as well as he gets more confident. The atmosphere there was amazing! They are kind, friendly, encouraging, and you can't help but feel like you're part of a family there. Call them for your therapy needs!!
Physical Therapy
For each time I've had PT the therapist are top notch! They know their stuff & take wonderful care of you. Everyone there is very friendly and compassionate. I've had PT at other places but Agape in Chili is #1 in my book!
Physical Therapy
Always clean and organized when I go in. Great staff and they really know what they are doing! This is my second year of having to go there and I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere else!
Physical Therapy
The gates crew are awesome, they made me feel like family from the first time I came in for an evaluation. Mike is fantastic he helped get my back in top shape. Thanks guys
Physical Therapy
I keep doing bad things to myself. The result is that I have seen four physical therapists at three facilities in recent years. Dan Strack is the best therapist of the four and Agape is the best facility. Here’s why:
• Dan’s directions are clear. I almost always know what he wants me to do. When I don’t, he is aware of that and tells me in another way.
• Dan explains the impact on my body of what he asks me to do. I don’t remember anyone doing that before. His explanations help me understand what we are doing and that helps me follow his directions.
• Dan has a subtle but effective way of correcting me. What seems like an off-hand comment as he walks by reminds me what I should be doing. I don’t feel like I have been told I am doing something wrong.
• Dan is concerned that I feel successful. He will modify something he has asked me to do, explaining what to do when I feel I am being pushed too far. That is valuable when I am doing exercises at home. I know how to adjust what I am doing depending on how I feel (see the second bullet).
• Nice guy. I enjoy coming in to see him.
• Agape. The atmosphere is relaxed but professional. And respectful of the clients.
• I enjoy the Virtual Reality Treadmill and will miss the fun when I am discharged.
Physical Therapy
AMAZING therapists who are always doing an excellent job of personalizing their services to make sure you are well taken care of. Catherine goes above and beyond for her patients and I would definitely recommend her!
Physical Therapy
If I could give this place a million stars I would without a blink, for three months I have suffered from back pain after I jumped off 30 foot bridge into the water, since that day my life have flipped upside down couldn’t sleep couldn’t sit couldn’t run it was the worst time of my life, I have went to two physical therapy place and no improvement, till I found agape and seen the great google reviews, so I have decided to give it a shot, came in and the staff was very helpful and seen Mike Hughes he was absolutely knowledgeable and very experienced, it took this guy only one week to give me my life back like it use to before, specially the cupping he know exactly what’s he doing. Any one suffering from back pain ask for mike and asks for his magic cupping it’s totally worth and it’s works like magic
Physical Therapy
Adam Krahmer is best! This is my second time working with him, when my doctor said I would need physical therapy again I knew just where to go, and requested him- he’s so very helpful, and is always joking & cheering me on, making PT as fun as it can be. I have some other medical issues as well, and he’s always willing to adjust & make things work for me! Everyone here is great! Wouldn't go anywhere else.
Physical Therapy
I was thoroughly impressed with the modern, clean, welcoming environment that I experienced while in the clinic, from their anti-gravity treadmill to the multitude of workout machines.. After consulting with therapists about previous injuries, I am much more knowledgeable and confident with treating my injuries. I, without doubt, recommend the therapists at the Chili clinic!
Physical Therapy
Would I recommend Agape Physical Therapy…Mike Hughes? Absolutely. Mike has worked with me three different times now. After the first time (for a knee replacement), I asked for him again and again! For two years in a row now I have been dealing with sciatica, each with a different kind of pain. I just finished the second bout of sciatica which began with severe pain. I’m delighted to report I’m 99% better! It is such a relief! Mike listened to my details and was quick to adapt the workout to my needs. If something wasn’t working, he quickly came up with something different. The whole atmosphere at Agape is right on task, even with all the kidding and conversation and that certainly seems to make the workouts a little lighter. And to add to all that, Kira (and the other young women) always greeted me warmly as I sign in.
Physical Therapy
Agape Physical Therapy in Penfield, NY is absolutely amazing! The facilities are brand new and beautiful with an abundance of natural lighting. Natalia PT, DPT is knowledgeable, patient, and empowering. She thoroughly explains why particular exercises are most helpful for my condition and has also gone above-and-beyond to formulate workout routines for me to do at home. I am grateful to have her support and guidance in my postpartum recovery!
Physical Therapy
I genuinely enjoyed going to PT, Natalia is amazing! My results far exceeded expectations. I wouldn't have the range of motion that I have now without Natalia! She also taught me a lot of exercises that I can continue to do at home. I am SO glad that I did my PT at Agape!
Physical Therapy
My experience at Agape physical therapy has been outstanding. After years of dealing with hip, back, and neck pain, I am finally on the road to recovery. Natalia, my PT, has shared her wealth of knowledge and expertise with me and I have been seeing changes for the better. I never thought in a million years that physical therapy could work for me. And, it has! All the staff members I've come in contact with from the beginning have been wonderful, professional and make you feel like you're their number one priority. I encourage anyone needing PT to try Agape! It's made a huge difference for me.
Physical Therapy
Brand new facility , new equipment, and a very knowledgeable and professional Physical Therapist.
Physical Therapy
I was in a lot of pain and had been receiving PT from another facility (no real results) and switched to Agape due to insurance carrier change. Mike Hughes impressed me from the very 1st day! He was friendly, informative and encouraging. He had me feeling GREAT in a few weeks. Best PT that I've had in 10yrs of PT!!!!
Physical Therapy
I have been dealing with lower back pain and Sciatica off and on for over two years. I have been to the doctor for a prescription and tried a bunch of exercises and stretches, but with only limited success. I was referred to Natalia Farnsworth at the Agape Physical Therapy office in Penfield and I am finally getting some real help. Natalia figured out why I was having this pain and has helped me with a series of new stretches and exercises to help relieve the pain. She provides one on one care and really understands how to get to the root of my problem. I am now getting relief from the pain in my lower back and leg. She's also helping me with understand why the Sciatica flares up and how I can prevent. It sure beats swallowing Advil. Thank you Natalia!
Physical Therapy
My experience so far receiving Physical Therapy services through Agape has been very positive! The staff has been extremely friendly and professional. The facility is clean and has an extensive variety of therapeutic equipment. In particular, Natalia Farnsworth , the PT who has been working with me, is highly knowledgeable in her field and is genuinely interested in helping her clients achieve a better state of health and well being. I would highly recommend Agape Physical Therapy services in Penfield!
Physical Therapy
The care that I have received at the Chili office has been exceptional! From the receptionist to my therapists, Adam & Kate, everyone in the office is more than happy to help. Thanks to everyone my recovery is going wonderfully.
Physical Therapy
I've been coming here for the past few months after shoulder surgery and thanks to Brett's knowledge and expertise as a physical therapist I have been making quick and steady improvement.
Physical Therapy
From the moment I was greeted at the front desk by very pleasant Kira, and was introduced to Mike Hughes, PT, DPT, who gave me a tour of the state-of-the-art facility, there was no question where I wanted to rehab from my total knee replacement surgery. Mike developed an exercise routine for me consisting of stretching, balance, soft tissue massage and "cupping." His extensive knowledge and detailed explanation of the areas being treated and why, his professionalism and welcoming demeaner sprinkled with silly humor, made the entire experience a success. The attention from the dedicated staff - Kira, Mike, students Gabbie and Lisa, and Joe with his perpetual smile and encouragement, provide a facility that operates like a well-oiled machine. Their paramount focus is to improve their patient's ability to return to normal after injury or surgery. Mike was responsible for accomplishing that for me. The staff's close-knit relationship and positive attitude is heartwarming. I would not hesitate to recommend Agape Physical Therapy - Gates for all your rehab needs.
Physical Therapy
I had a rare work hamstring injury that required surgery. Before my surgery Agape was recommended to me by my Dr. Mike H evaluated me and started a plan to get me back to where I wanted to be. Results were better but still had pain after another recommendation by Mike H to go see an Ortho surgeon. The issue was found and I started PT again to rebuild my strength and mobility. Mike and Steve was awesome getting me back on track. I was in PT for about 3 months or more. The process was long due to the nature of the injury, but the results, care, and attention given was worth it. Kira who basically runs the front office is wonderful, she was always willing and ready to reschedule if needed and her wonderful Smile and upbeat personality was such a welcome my 3 days a week of PT. BTW the equipment is Top Notch... I don't want another injury, but if it was to occur again. I know who to call and where to go!! Thanks Guys
Physical Therapy
Steve helped me recover from surgery for a torn ACL. He was great at his work, pushing me to my limits. He knew how to address my key concerns, which allowed me to get my strength and mobility back sooner, I believe!
Physical Therapy
Following my first knee replacement surgery, I had the good fortune to be referred to Agape for extended rehabilitation. Rehab was new to me and I really didn't know what to expect. In the beginning it wasn't easy and I had a hard time believing I would ever be able to walk again without feeling pain. As time went on, I was amazed with the progress I was making and eventually I was walking pain free. After my second knee replacement there was no doubt I was going back to Agape. That's when I was introduced to Steve. He took charge of my rehab and designed a personalized program for me. I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism and the dedication he applied to his work. We developed a great rapport and I actually looked forward to therapy. After completing the program, Steve put together a routine that I could follow at home. Once again, the results exceeded my expectations and I credit that to Steve and Agape.
Physical Therapy
I was extremely pleased with the treatment I received at the Greece location. Steve and has staff were very professional and helpful during my visits.
Physical Therapy
Before I started therapy I could not stand for more than a few minutes without extreme pain. Stephen was able to get me functioning again. He has equipment to handle any injury. I will definitely return if I need PT again in the future.
Physical Therapy
Being a physical therapist seems as though it comes naturally to Stephen. He excels in his career and truly cares about his patients and their success. I would recommend him to anyone! Keep up the good work!
Physical Therapy
I have been paying the price for years with constant back and neck pain. I finally decided to seek professional help from Stephen Fose at Agape. Hands down one of the best decisions I've made. Even after just a couple sessions I was back to my old thoroughbred form and pain free!
Physical Therapy
After hand surgery I went to Steve Fose for therapy and i received professional and quality care and I would highly recommend him and his facility to my family and friends
Physical Therapy
Stephen Fose is a high quality character person who wants nothing but the best for his patients. He loves what he does and is dedicated to his profession.
Physical Therapy
If you need physical therapy, schedule an evaluation with Stephen Fose, PT, DPT, CSCS. He is an excellent therapist and I would recommend him to anyone!
Physical Therapy
Steven Fose is very professional and wonderful to work with! I would go back to him at Agape Physical Therapy in Greece for any further physical therapy I may need in the future!
Physical Therapy
Stephen is an absolute magician. I've had ruthless shoulder pain from old sports and lifting injuries for years. Putting ignorant pride away, I decided to try treating the problem as opposed to pushing through. After working with Stephen one on one for 8 weeks, it was as if my shoulder was reborn. He identified the problem, created a plan to fix it and held me accountable as it started to heal. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or results.

After rotator cuff surgery I went to Agape Physical Therapy for PT. Overall Agape was a great group to work with. Steve Fose took over my case after a few weeks and worked me into a routine that was not only professional and effective, but very enjoyable as well. I know PT being fun right? Steve took the time to get to know me and I never felt like my PT was any less important then any of his other patients. I actually was sorry to say goodbye when things were back to normal. I hope I will never need PT again but if I do I won't hesitate to work with Agape and Steve again.

Agape Physical Therapy is a great place where the physical therapists and staff do an amazing job of personalizing their services to meet your needs. They make you feel like your needs are important and assist you with great care. I am always impressed with the level of professionalism from those at the front desk to upper management. Their use of up to date methods of service and technology makes them stand above the rest. I would definitely recommend them for any physical therapy/Health and wellness needs you may have.

Steve Fosse was excellent following my shoulder surgery. Recovery went faster than anticipated and I was able to return to lifting weights sooner than expected.

I have come to Steve with multiple issues and you couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable, down to earth and professional person. He couldn't be easier to communicate and work with. I have recommended him to many friends and family. As long as he's here, I won't go anywhere else.

Steve, at the Agape Physical Therapy location in Greece, is by far one of the most professional Physical Therapists in the Rochester area. His knowledge of various orthopedic injuries and conditions makes him the ideal Physical Therapist to suit your needs. The care and attention he provides to his patients makes your time during therapy enjoyable, while working towards your goals and recovering from an injury.

I received physical therapy in the Gates office from November 2015 through February 2016 following surgery in September 2015 to repair a serious break of my right fibula and severely damaged tendon in my right ankle. I was referred to Agape by my surgeon and Greg VanGorden was my assigned physical therapist. When I started my therapy, I was wheelchair bound and scared to death of falling again during my recovery. I’m in my forties and I had never broken a bone in my life. I was in a lot of pain every day at that point and was terrible at using crutches, likely due in part to my fear of falling again. I’m a very independent person and prior to my first appointment, I had been forbidden to put any weight at all on my leg for seven weeks. It took a lot of work just to get from my bed into the next room and I remained on one floor of my house, aside from going to doctors appointments. From the first that I met with Greg about eight weeks post surgery, he did a great job at putting me at ease, which was truly no small feat. He explained that he was relatively new to Agape at that time, but seemed to conduct his preliminary evaluation thoroughly and efficiently. During each of my subsequent sessions he helped to motivate me and keep me on track, helping me to relax enough to really focus and work on each goal. The routine Greg developed and modified for me during the subsequent 3 months saw me soon walking again, rebuilding strength and confidence in my ability. When I “graduated” from my therapy sessions, he designed a plan for me to follow at home that has really helped me to be about 98 percent restored at this point. The bone has healed well and I’m happy to be able to do all of my normal activities. As my surgeon predicted, my tendon (which had been badly torn) will take about eighteen months to completely heal so I have a little time left to work on that, but it’s all progressing according to plan. I’m very grateful to Greg for all of his hard work, professionalism, patience and compassion during my recovery. He always had a smile on his face and was clearly invested in my progress as well as in the progress of each of his other patients he worked with during my sessions. It takes a special kind of person to be able to help people through necessary pain to regain strength and mobility and I want your management team to know what an asset Greg VanGorden is to your company from a patient’s perspective. I would certainly recommend Agape and Greg to friends and family in need of physical therapy.

Sending a thank you to Agape for providing Senior Fitness Classes at the Gates Town Hall – and an even bigger thank you to Jason Wambold who instructs our class this year. He is so knowledgeable and engaging with the group. He challenges us, motivates us, and teaches us about the various moves and how they work our muscles and joints. I have been attending this class for about 8 years now. It has been so beneficial to my well-being, mobility & flexibility – and this is the best yet! Thank you!

Over a year and a half ago I suffered a back injury at work. I’ve had tests and seem specialists. I was referred to Agape by my specialist and I have to say sitting down during my first eval, I really felt that the therapist I met truly understood me. Truly felt my pain. Went above and beyond ( in my opinion) to get the correct plan started for me. I went to my first appointment and met another great therapist who really impressed me. I left with hope. For once I’m hopeful that I can feel relief. Looking forward to future visits. Feeling comfortable is so important. Great staff, great place!

I put off physical therapy, frankly I did not believe it would help me. I have arthritis 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 therapy did hurt, but they were very encouraging, so I continued. They gave me great home therapy stretches to do and I did them. Within six weeks I was able to sleep without pain waking me. I love the staff at the Webster location, all of them. I laughed my way through the pain. Thanks you Webster Agape. 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 you to friends and family.

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!
