What Our Clients Have To Say​

“I lost hope. I had 2 surgeries scheduled, but I didn’t want to do it. But what options did I have? I just didn’t know. Before coming here, I had 2 surgeries scheduled. I was pain free, for the first time in 15 years, in just 2 sessions. And the best part is, it has stayed away.”​

Physical Therapy Reviews

Matthew Leis

Auditor, PwC
“It is not an exaggeration to say that Dr. Patel and the team at Adapt have changed my life. I’ve suffered with back pain for many years and was skeptical about trying another physical therapist. Make no mistake, Dr. Patel is not just another physical therapist.

Meet Your Specialists

Adapt Physical Therapy was founded by Dr. Payal Patel, a leading physical therapy clinic owner, published author, and well known newspaper columnists. 

She gained interest in the field of physical therapy after her own pain which debilitated her as an athlete and active adult. After many “generic” treatments left her in pain, she set out to find a way to help active adults put their own injury struggles behind them so they can get back to doing what they love. 

Payal is known as the “last chance pt”. She specializes in helping active adults who have been let down in the past find a permanent and natural solution to their pain

Dr. Dave Kim, PT, DPT

Dr. Dave Kim is a physical therapist and strength & conditioning specialist at Adapt Physical Therapy. He brings a breadth of knowledge and experience from many different clinical settings, which allows him to provide an innovative, holistic, and individualized approach to his patients.

Before becoming a physical therapist, Dave went through his own rehab journey filled with disappointments and frustrations in the healthcare system. This led Dave down a path of learning the complexities of the human body from well established practitioners across multiple disciplines throughout the nation. He is fully committed to lifelong learning to ensure his patients receive the most effective and up-to-date care.

Dave received his BS in Exercise Science & Sport Studies from Rutgers University and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) from New York University.KIm
