New Scotland Physical Therapy, the therapist-owned, family-oriented physical therapy center in the Stonewell Plaza in Slingerlands, has just expanded staff, bringing on a part-time pediatric physical therapy specialist to serve children in need in our local area.
Mollie Dambrocia (MSPT), with the support of her husband C.J. Dambrocia (MS, ATC, CSCS) has owned and operated their local practice for six years now, catering to local clients who would prefer to experience outpatient physical therapy closer to home and in a more personal environment.
“We’re not owned by any hospital system or big chain or corporation,” said Mollie Dambrocia. “I wanted to be able to provide a service that’s more personal and individual than some of the other options available.
When you need physical therapy services, oftentimes you need to go two or three times a week,” she added. “And if you live out this way, and beyond, you may not want to be driving any distance up to three times a week for your therapy. You want something that’s a little more accessible, without sacrificing quality. We are able to provide exactly that.”
The Dambrocias’ practice takes pride in offering accessibility and personal care along with experience, professionalism and a commitment to community wellness. Mollie has a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Science and a master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College, as well as more than 15 years of experience in a variety of settings, including: trauma; inpatient rehab; outpatient private practice and home care. She’s also been a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, which allows her to stay current in all the professional advances in her field.
C.J., a graduate of Guilderland High School, has a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education with dual concentrations in Athletic Training and Exercise Physiology, and a master’s degree in Exercise Science & Health Promotion. As a Certified Athletic Trainer, C.J. has worked with athletes of all ages and skill levels, and he currently provides services for the local high school and area colleges as an independent consultant.
‘We are thrilled we were able to hire a new part-time therapist who has extensive pediatric experience,” said Dambrocia, referring to Janet Guilfoyle-Case PT. “Believe it or not pediatric outpatient therapy is difficult to find in this area.”
Guilfoyle-Case offers more than 25 years of experience in physical therapy, extensive experience in pediatrics, and she holds certifications in the LSVT BIG program, which is designed to treat individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
“We are really looking forward to better serving both of these populations,” said Dambrocia.
