Owners of Jersey Physical Therapy, which has locations in South Brunswick and East Brunswick, recently announced the promotion of long-time physical therapist, Avani Vora, PT, DPT, as the assistant clinical director of Jersey PT’s South Brunswick office in Kendall Park. As the assistant clinical director, Vora will continue to offer physical therapy services to clients while taking on a managerial and marketing role at the site.
Vora has been part of the Jersey Physical Therapy team for 10 years, first serving as a physical therapy aide for two summers beginning in 2003. While earning her master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, she completed her clinical rotation at Jersey PT before becoming a full-time physical therapist at the clinic in 2007.
Vora received her doctorate in physical therapy from Temple University in 2010.
“We’re pleased to offer this opportunity to Avani as she’s proven through the years to be an integral part of the Jersey PT family, both from our perspective and from that of our clients,” said Marc Rubenstein, PT, DPT, OCS, co-founder of Jersey Physical Therapy. “She remains passionate about improving the quality of life of her patients as well as staying current on research and treatments.”
Vora says that staying abreast of new treatments is part of the culture developed by Jersey Physical Therapy founders/partners Rubenstein, Geoffrey Hunt, BS, PT, OCS, and Sean Moore, PT, MPT.
“They’re so into staying up-to-date and improving their skills, despite already having such vast PT experience,” Vora said. “Two or three times a month, Sean Moore will show us new techniques or different ways of viewing a diagnosis, helping to add treatment options to our professional repertoire – options that can improve the lives of our clients.”
This willingness to continually learn, Vora says, speaks volumes of Jersey PT’s desire to remain results-driven.
“People have great experiences here because we have a more personal touch,” she said. “Our physical therapists really know how to make patients feel comfortable and make them feel like family, too. It’s not just about business; it’s about better living – about offering preventative care and pain treatments that help guide people down the path toward a better life.”
Rubenstein says Vora is one of the best when it comes to establishing a positive relationship with patients. “Avani really knows how to connect with them,” he said. “She always has the highest satisfaction rates. Her patients love and adore her, and when necessary, they always ask to see her again.”--Jersey Physical Therapy
