I have been working with Sanjoy Roy for about seven months following compression fractures in three vertebrae. Sanjoy's aid has been invaluable in helping me work out an exercise program to regain strength and reduce pain without causing increased damage to the bones involved. He brings a diverse background in healing modalities to his practice and I cannot say enough for his knowledge, skill and caring throughout this very difficult period.

I was in my 3rd year of medical school and training for a half Ironman when I got into a scary accident that destroyed my right knee. Things only got worse from there: my orthopedic surgeon told me I would never run again and I lost all hope...then I found Sanjoy. His incredible bedside manner, his humor and depth of knowledge is the reason I am running, skiing, cycling today. Sanjoy is encouraging, motivating and always looking for new techniques & exercises to incorporate into his practice. Years later, now as a physician, I still recommend Sanjoy to my family and friends...with his years of experience and training, Sanjoy is one of the best physical therapists in Chicago.

I went to Sanjoy with serious back pain. I had trouble standing up straight and walking short distances was occasionally so painful I would pass out. Sanjoy showed me a few simple exercises I did on my own for 10 or so minutes 3-5 times a day. We met several times a week and he quickly understood which exercises were helping and which weren’t and modified my routine. Within a couple of weeks, my pain was mostly gone and we began correcting muscle imbalances and building strength.

I have had physical therapy & wellness care before at “Other Big Name” places & never have I had the results or treatment like I have received at Albatross. They are professional, super knowledgeable, clean, accommodating, compassionate & understanding just to name a few key qualities. You’re not just a number here. You are a person, a patient, & a friend. I will continue to recommend them to anyone I hear is in pain. Thanks for helping me to feel well, on my road to recovery.
I have been going to Albatross for 2-1/2 months. After being referred by my surgeon for an L-5/S-1 Spinal Fusion. I have been to numerous PT's. that only wanted your money and would barely touch you or use different techniques. Not the case at Albatross. They are 100% hands-on and used Acupuncture, TENS and Message Therapy amongst other methods to address the current pain level and area that is bothering me most that day. They are 100% sincere when they tell you that they care about helping you and want your pain and discomfort to go away or be manageable. I am grateful for my surgeon referring me and look forward to the upcoming months of PT.
Over the last many years, we have been to probably close to 10 physical therapy practices for my brother's condition. None of really been thoughtful enough to take such an interest in his overall pain management and take a holistic approach to his condition. Sanjoy really asked a lot of important questions to help identify how he could best utilize his time with my brother. When he started his hands-on work, I could see my brother finally enter a stage that I had not seen in nearly ten years -- relief! Amazing! This was our first session and we were definitely skeptical. I am so glad that we found this office and Sanjoy. What a find and what a great individual!
I've been going to Albatross for the last few months with neck pain and I've been working with Sanjoy Roy and Sam. They are both extremely knowledgable and they have really helped me to feel better and gain back the mobility in my neck. I'm thrilled to have found this place as the care they give is top-notch. They really work through the issue you are having and give exercises to do at home. Mostly, they relieve your pain and help you to be the best you can be. I highly recommend!!
I visited Albatross PT for my knee pain due to basketball. From my MRI, I was diagnosed with a not so common knee problem (Hoffa pad impingement). The pain before PT was unbearable for day to day things as simple as walking, sitting, climbing stairs, and running. After the PT office visits, the pain has drastically decreased. I am also feeling stronger as a result.
Sanjoy Roy has been very helpful throughout my recovery and strengthening process. He truly cares about his patients and you can see this through his long hours he puts in with his patients at the clinic.
He doesn't only tackle the issue from one angle. He will provide a variety of treatments from e-stim, deep tissue, strengthing/balancing exercises, Graston, and much more.
I even had a rare back muscle strain and Sanjoy saw me the same day and fixed the problem.
I would 100% recommend Albatross!
A work colleague recommended Dr. Sanjoy to me and each day after my first visit I feel extremely fortunate that she did. I suffer from degenerating disk disorder. From day one, Dr. Sanjoy assured me that he could and would help alleviate my chronic discomfort/pain and he's made good on that assurance. He and his staff are professional, helpful and friendly. I didn't have to worry about reaching out to my insurance provider to confirm the coverage and I've never had to worry about remembering an appointment. His staff takes care of those details so all I have to do is show up and receive care. Today, I feel great, so much better than I have all year, thanks to Dr. Sanjoy. Today, I'm hopeful that I'll continue to get better and with Dr. Sanjoy's help, prevent my condition from worsening over time. If I had to describe my experience in one word, it would be a relief. My body and mind both feel relieved thanks to the amazing care and attention Dr. Sanjoy provides.
Sanjoy and his team do their absolute best to take care of whatever your need is. It is was so reassuring and refreshing for me to have a therapist genuinely committed to getting me better and healthy as quickly as possible. Unlike experiences I have had with other therapists, Sanjoy really wants you to get better as soon as possible so that you can get back to doing what you love. He doesn't partially help you so you have to keep coming back for treatment but instead invests serious time and consideration with each patient, doing his best to ensure the quickest and longest-lasting treatment for a full recovery. I never felt like any kind of information or treatment was being withheld from me to make sure I had to keep coming back. Sanjoy was on my team, working with me and assisting me to get me back to running as quickly as possible.
I was refreshed by the time Sanjoy took with me, and with each of his patients, making sure that the pain I had was addressed and resolved rather than giving me a quick program and moving to his next patient. I really felt the value of the money spent. Sanjoy honors you as a customer and a person and gives you the best he can.
I am thankful for the specificity of his treatment, his knowledge of my injury, and his commitment to intensive care for each person.He was quickly able to identify the problem and started healing it right away.
My experience was great and I would highly recommend giving this office a shot!
Also, Sanjoy is a super cool guy and really easy to talk with, very open and real, and a very hard worker dedicated to goals. Ask him about learning to swim!
All that to say, I am feeling much much better after my several visits and think that you will too!
Thank you Sanjoy! Blessings to you!
Excellent professional and compassionate care. After only 3 visits my knee injury pain is significantly reduced. Sanjoy is an amazing practitioner, quickly finds the root of problems, and uses various treatments to accelerate healing. Sam is super organized, co-ordinates appointments and insurance verifications to get a patient the care they deserve. Albatross services and staff are the best!!
I highly recommend Sanjoy and Albatross PT for your physical therapy needs! As a former high school and collegiate athlete, I've had numerous opportunities to have physical therapy throughout my life. When I decided to train for a half Ironman I knew that I was going to need to find someone who had multiple areas of expertise and would be able to address each ache and pain that occurred in a different way. Knowing that Sanjoy could perform acupuncture, massage, chiropractic care, electrical stim and ultrasound (to name a few) was what made me decide to go see him. His dedication to helping me succeed and his wonderful care was what kept me going back and allowed me to not only complete my first half Ironman but I did it faster than I ever dreamed I could!
I'm so glad to have found this practice! After experiencing some nagging pain whole running, I was looking for a therapist to help me get back to running pain-free. Sanjoy is very thorough and takes his time to explain the variety of therapies he uses and how they will help with symptoms. With his help, I'll be able to keep logging miles and continue working towards new PRs!
I have had the best experience here. For years, I had been suffering from pain in my neck and upper back that caused severe headaches. I couldn’t sleep through the night and felt constantly drained. Doctors only prescribed pain pills and chiropractors seemed to make things worse. A friend suggested I see a physical therapist. After seeing a post by Albatross on Facebook, I made an appointment to see Sanjoy. He is one of the most caring healthcare professionals I have ever met. On top of that, he truly knows how to help. Since I started therapy at Albatross, I have experienced zero headaches. I sleep through the night and have more energy than I ever have. My neck and upper back feel much better. I am still a working progress, but I know I’m on the right track and I’m so thankful I made that first appointment.
Sam always makes me feel genuinely welcome when I walk in the door. At my first appointment, he thoroughly explained how my insurance would work and how payments would be made. They have been flexible with my schedule and have Saturday hours which is a huge help!
I can’t recommend these guys enough.
