Josephine Cruz (Jean) was born in the Philippines where she earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Physical Therapy. Her motivation to choose that career path was a result of seeing how physical therapy helped different family members, suffering chronic arthritis and stroke. Coming to the United States, Jean had the opportunity to work in different facilities where she gained the valuable experience that led her to us.
Jean joined our staff in 2007, where her experience with different age groups and various diagnoses have made her a valuable asset to our staff. Her knowledge, compassion, and dedication to helping others is evident by the positive feedback she receives from her patients. She is knowledgeable in various exercise modalities and protocols, and gets a great deal of satisfaction in helping her patients overcome their disabilities and return to their previous level of function and beyond.
Jean is a Staten Island resident, and her family is excited about the upcoming arrival of their third baby boy, due in January of 2016.
