Naperville, IL – A charming personality, infectious laugh, and an amazing knowledge of the human body - just a few of the bountiful compliments colleagues and patients extol about Piotr Tuszynski, a physical therapist at ATI Physical Therapy’s Naperville South clinic. 

Tuszynski,  DScpT, ATC, CMPT, has been honored as one of Chicago’s Outstanding Physical Therapists in a special section published in the February 2014 issue of Chicago Magazine. Tuszynski was selected for the designation by Five Star Professional. The award recognizes service professionals who provide quality services to their clients. 

Patient Tim Kizorek, of Naperville, said Piotr was able to help him when no one else could.

“Piotr really knows what he is doing. He knows the whole human body…that is key! Just as important, he has a positive personality,” said Kizorek. “I believe in the power of healing with a positive outlook and laugher. Pitor is the whole package.”

According to clinic director Dennis Carter, Tuszynski takes ownership for his patients and their outcomes.
