Robert DiLillo PT, MA, Cert. MDT
Partner & Physical Therapist at Upper East Side Location
Helping people through physical ailments has become Rob's lifelong passion, one he first encountered when his father had to seek treatment for persistent back and knee trouble. Rob began doing volunteer work at physical therapy practices a family friend owned in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Inspired, Rob went on to earn Bachelor's (Hunter, 1991) and Master's (NYU, 1996) degrees in Physical Therapy. His formative clinical years were at the highly-regarded Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, at NYU Medical Center. Rob also became McKenzie certified while working at Rusk. Rob met Greg Hullstrung while both were working at Rusk, and the two launched H&D Physical Therapy in 1997 in a small, ground-floor office in Tudor City. Rob has become expert in functional approaches to physical therapy, core stabilization and manual therapy. Rob wants his patients to return to full participation in the activities they enjoy. In his spare time, Rob likes to play softball, ski, and travel with his family. Rob currently works at our 88 street location and midtown location.
