About Family Care Physical Therapy


Family Care Physical Therapy was originally founded in 1995 by Diane Brennan and Karen Panzarella.                                                                                         Sammy Iraci III assumed ownership of the business in 2008 and by 2010 expanded the practice to two locations across (Williamsville and Buffalo).         
  In 2022, Family Care Physical Therapy merged with Northtown Physical Therapy and now co-owner Ryan Gutt bringing the practice to 2 locations            spread out through Western NY. Family Care PT has been recognized by several insurance companies as a preferred clinic for their members                   rehabilitation needs.  Family Care PT bases their ideology of physics therapy around human connections/personal touch. The clinics are kept small to     help maintain a family type atmosphere and ensure every patient has personalized rehabilitation compared to larger practices where this art is lost.     Family Care PT is dedicated to designing rehab protocols based on the individual and their specific goals which utilizes constant therapist-patient communication to achieve attainable results.

Family Care PT is a physical therapy clinic with locations in Buffalo and Williamsville, NY.

We offer a wide array of services designed to treat everyday discomfort at work and sports injuries.
At Family Care PT, we believe in helping each patient achieve complete wellness.
We will not only work with you in the office, but we will also teach you ways to continue your rehab when you’re home or back at work.
