Dr. Phil Giordano
Education: Ithaca College – Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree
Hometown: Long Island, New York
Dr. Giordano’s motivation to become a physical therapist stemmed from his grandparents. From a young age, they would take the whole family on beautiful vacations out of the country. On these trips, he first noticed how difficult it was for them to walk around and navigate through the resorts. From that point on, it became a life goal of his to help individuals apply health and fitness to their lifestyles with longevity and vitality in mind. Then, in high school, as an active track athlete in East Northport, Long Island, he unfortunately suffered a severe groin tear during junior year. Upon attending physical therapy for the injury, he fell in love with the experience, the environment, and the profession.
Upon graduating from the Ithaca College DPT program, Dr. Giordano has practiced in multiple physical therapy settings through his early career, spending time in the acute-care setting, working with post-stroke, complicated orthopedic, as well as patients with spinal cord injury. Prior to his arrival at ProMet PT, he treated orthopedic patients in a 1-on-1 setting on his native Long Island, before shifting to the big city and Upper West Side of Manhattan, to work with elite-level athletes.
Philip’s specialty is working with patients with knee injuries, fueled by his certification in ACL rehabilitation and his successful experiences guiding over 100 individuals through ACL rehab to return to their prior level of function, and more!
With ProMet Physical Therapy, Dr. Giordano’s professional goals are to become an Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) as well as explore manual therapy courses to become certified in Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT). He is fueled by his passion for the impact that we can make in peoples’ lives and believes that the right amount of specified manual therapy, in combination with purposeful exercise prescription, is the key to unlocking the power of physical therapy!
Phil enjoys a steady diet of exercise, long walks through parks and city neighborhoods searching for the best cup of joe, playing soccer, and keeping his head on straight with a good book or a podcast. He has recently taken up snorkeling and his “bucket list” contains a visit to every Caribbean Island to explore and swim amongst the marine life!
