* Location reflects the licensee's primary mailing address on record with the Office of the Professions; the address is not necessarily the licensee's practice address. Although licensees must be registered to use the professional title or to practice within New York State, being registered does not mean the licensee is actively doing so.

** Physical therapist assistants practice only under the supervision of licensed physical therapists.
