William Schauss PT, MS

Bill graduated from New York Institute of Technology in 2001 with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. Bill was motivated to pursue a career in physical therapy after seeing the results it had on his sister Karen who was born with Down’s Syndrome. He’s worked in different clinics in the long island area. Through each of these settings, Bill was able to learn from his co-workers, and he developed a vision of ideal physical therapy care. This passion motivated him with his partner Arthur Reiss, to start their own Physical Therapy office. Specifically, Bill believes that physical therapy should include Hands on treatment, personal attention, functional exercises, and a fun atmosphere. His areas of expertise include: Manual Therapy, Functional Exercises Sports Specific Training, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, active stretches, patient education and trunk stabilization activities. He’s confident treating orthopedic injuries, back pain and any sports related injuries. What’s important according to Bill? “One of the greatest aspects of my job is to listen. I want to know what matters to each patient. Port Jefferson Physical Therapy should be a place where a patient can feel at home because while you’re in our clinic it’s about you, not us.”
