Our Story

Our story is simple: three physical therapists, who have been in the local community for years, were eager to open a practice focused on giving patients the individualized care they need.


There are plenty of physical therapy clinics in Suffolk County, but Martino Physical Therapy in Holtsville is different.  Our online reviews and patient testimonials speak for themselves!  When a patient goes under our care, they become part of our family!  


Take care of yourself by getting back to that activity you’ve been unable to do because of your injury.  Go back to playing a sport, get back to the gym, play with your children/grandchildren, or take that walk around your block.  We would be glad to help! 


We have seen generations of patients from Holtsville, Farmingville, Ronkonkoma, Centereach, Selden, Medford, and beyond. 


Dr. John A. Baio, PT, DPT, CSCS

Dr. Baio graduated with his Baccalaureate degree in Biology before going on to achieve his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in '06 at Seton Hall University.  His passion for training athletes also led him to earn his certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.) from the NSCA.  He is currently on the NY state board of directors for the National Strength and Conditioning Association.


John Baio's first PT experience was in the inpatient rehabilitation unit at St. Charles Hospital, rotating between patients with traumatic brain injuries, pediatric patients, and patients after joint replacements.  He now spends some time of his week assisting at Stony Brook University in the Physical Therapy program and guest lectures for the students. John's latest addition to his career includes treating athletes after a concussion as they "Return to Play".


When he's not helping patient's of all ages feel better, John loves to play ice hockey, walk/hike with his wife and two sons, or try new foods!

Andrew F. Martino, PT

Andrew Martino has been practicing physical therapy in the local community for over three decades.  After receiving his degree in Physical Therapy, his early career focused on pediatrics, Andrew transitioned to becoming the director of a large sports medicine clinic for 20 years.  Eager to give his patients the personal attention and compassion they deserve, he left the big clinic and founded Martino Physical Therapy in 2007.  


Since opening, Andrew has been published in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery for his treatment techniques with TMJ/jaw pain and dysfunction.  He has also been a representative in NY state to benefit the profession.


When Andrew isn't helping to improve the health and wellness of the community, he spends his time as an outdoorsman upstate or camping with family on Eastern Long Island.
