Dr. Gibbs and her staff treated me with physical therapy following surgery for a pectoralis major tendon repair. Dr. Gibbs is a skilled professional who cares highly for her patients. I arrived in her office with minimal shoulder mobility and high pain levels, and walked out a few months later with essentially full mobility and no pain. Very grateful for Dr. Gibbs and her professional, caring and welcoming staff.

Desiree Gibbs, the owner of Ambient Physical Therapy, is an excellent physical therapist and diagnostician. She has a unique ability diagnose the root of the problem; in my case a weak ankle was contributing to my low back issues and she addressed both for long lasting relief. She has "magic fingers" that zone in on trigger points and relieve the pain. Most of all, she is a kind, caring professional that puts the needs of her patients first. I would highly recommend Desiree and Ambient PT.

I cannot say enough good things about this practice. I've never had a practitioner who was so knowledgeable, thorough, patient, caring, and considerate of my needs. The treatment has been a great success as my back was going out and incapacitating me every couple of weeks. I feel stronger and much better able to accomplish every day tasks. The office is extremely pleasant, comfortable, and run very smoothly. I am truly grateful to have found this wonderful place and will definitely recommend!

Desiree is an excellent therapist. She really cares about her patients and does her best to help them. She is very knowledgeable and resourceful. She was very quick to diagnose the root cause of my pain and devised an effective treatment plan. I experienced a fast improvement under her care. She also has a great sense of humor. Each of my therapy sessions was an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend her as a top rated physical therapist.

Desiree is a very respondible, dedicated and caring person. She is very intelligent and knowledgeable in all areas of the body. She has helped me with my bilateral knee replamement and my plantar fasciitis. I walked into Desiree's office and came out feeling brand new! That's when I knew she was very good. I highly recommend Desiree if you have any body pain. She will take good care of you, guaranteed! Maria from Princeton, NJ

After months of nagging bilateral hamstring pain, I was sent to Desiree at Ambient PT. I immediately felt comfortable here. Desiree is friendly, knowledgeable and so encouraging. She helped me progress each week with treatments and exercises, and gave me guidance for at home workouts as well. My condition has now greatly improved. I highly recommend Desiree. She obviously loves her work and her patients, and they love her back! And Griff makes scheduling a breeze. A great experience at Ambient!

Ambient Physical Therapy has really helped me. A couple of months ago I had so much pain in my right knee that I could barely bend my leg. Now the exercises have really healed me knee and I am able to walk without any pain.

I've had a great and positive experience here. Desiree is a wonderful therapist and great person. Griff is great, friendly, and always very helpful with scheduling. I'm very grateful for their help. My lower back ache has greatly improved under Desiree's care. I can bend down to pick up things up that I was not able to do before my therapy.

I had an excellent experience at Ambient PT. The initial assessment was very thorough and Desiree provided a logical explanation to the pain I was experiencing. My left knee was very painful and swollen to the point that I had difficulty walking. Each session was a balance between ultrasound treatment, massage, and targeted exercises. Week after week, my condition improved to the point where I practically have no pain at all. I highly recommend Ambient PT to other patients.

I had moderate pain and stiffness in my left neck going down into my shoulder, stiffness on the right side, a loud "click" on the left when I moved my head. Heat and massage seemed to alleviate the pain, as did occasional cervical traction. Exercises strengthened muscles I was apparently using incorrectly. By mid-April it was feeling less stiff and sore. The last few weeks have shown much improvement, less pain (less frequency too), more range of motion in my neck. Thanks Desiree for your help!

I'm so happy I found Ambient Physical Therapy. It has absolutely changed my life. I have been searching for physical therapy that would work for me for 10 plus years. I am so grateful to have found that here at Ambient. The philosophy and method of treatment here is forward thinking. Desiree treats the whole person. She understands how all the parts of the body work together. Using this knowledge, she put together an effective program for me. I am finally working my way back to bodily health.
