Meet Your Directors

Susan Schneider, PT, DPT, MSPT

MY HOBBIES: Playing golf, traveling, and spending time with my daughter, who plays Division I field hockey at Quinnipiac University, and son, who is slated to graduate from the University of Delaware with a degree in biomedical engineering next year.

Susan began her career path when she pursued a BS in Physical Education from Ithaca College, which was driven by deep-seated passion for sports.  Her undergraduate education sparked a desire to learn more about human performance and the human body, and with this came an interest in becoming a physical therapist.  From there, she would go on to obtain her MS in Physical Therapy from Columbia University, and later her Doctor of Physical Therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Susan started working for Strulowitz & Gargiulo Physical Therapy after graduating from Columbia University in 1986, when the practice was still in its early years of existence.  She has remained with the clinic and has served a vital role of their day-to-day operations ever since.  Her roles and responsibilities have grown over the years and she eventually became a senior therapist and the clinical director for the Jersey City location, where she has closely supervised the physical therapy staff.  Throughout her career, Susan has had the opportunity to work with a diverse orthopedic population, including student athletes and professional athletes alike, and she has regularly worked with many of the local high schools and athletic trainers in surrounding community.  She also served as coordinator for Columbia University’s Program in Physical Therapy as a mentor for students completing the clinical rotation component of their education.

Susan holds a Sportsmetrics Certification in ACL Injury Prevention, which enables her to prescribe targeted prevention programs to reduce the risk for ACL and other knee injuries in athletes.  She treats a wide range of conditions, but specializes in sports medicine, the female athlete, knee and shoulder injuries—particularly softball pitching and throwing injuries—human performance, and return-to-play after rehabilitation.  She was also an adjunct professor at Columbia University for several years, where she helped develop their orthopedic curriculum and regularly gave lectures on a variety of topics, including orthopedic evaluation, manual therapy, and exercise prescription, with a strong focus on knee and shoulder injuries.

Susan retained her role as clinic director when Strulowitz & Gargiulo Physical Therapy partnered with Twin Boro Physical Therapy in 2019.  With this partnership, Susan will continue to provide the best available care to patients while also looking to expand and improve upon the rehabilitation services offered at Strulowitz & Gargiulo-Twin Boro Physical Therapy at Bayonne to better serve the community.  When treating patients, she utilizes a comprehensive, hands-on approach that starts with a thorough evaluation to accurately diagnose the condition present, followed by an assessment of what functional needs the individual has.  Her process emphasizes careful and precise exercise prescription, manual therapy techniques, and a progression of interventions that gradually increase in intensity as the patient regains their abilities.  These principles of patient management through every stage of improvement are very much in line of Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model to determine the “right level of health care” for each individual.  Susan is also committed to incorporating evidence-based practices into her treatment plans whenever possible.


Carl Gargiulo, PT, DPT, OCS

MY HOBBIES: Skiing, running, and spending time with my family, including three grandchildren, especially during summers at the Jersey Shore.

Carl Gargiulo’s 40-year career as a physical therapist started with his lifelong love of sports and a desire to help others remain as active as possible in their daily life endeavors, whether that’s on the playing field or around one’s home.  His interest in the field led him to New York University, where he obtained his BS in Physical Therapy, and later his MA in Pathokinesiology.  Carl eventually went on to further his education by completing his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Carl began working with the late Dan Strulowitz after graduating from NYU, and they went on to become partners, opening Strulowitz & Gargiulo Physical Therapy in 1984.  He remained owner and president of the practice for his entire career before partnering with Twin Boro Physical Therapy in 2019.  Carl has worked closely with patients of all ages and ability levels, from pediatrics to geriatrics, but has extensive experience and specializes in orthopedics, sports medicine and injuries, isokinetics, functional capacity evaluations, and work-related injuries.  Over the past 10 years, he’s coordinated with local hospital outpatient departments to develop cancer rehabilitation programs.  He’s also worked to improve the safety of older adults with regular fall prevention lectures that highlight the importance of mobility and independence.

Carl has been certified as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties and serves as an adjunct instructor at the Columbia University Program in Physical Therapy.  He regularly provides lectures at Columbia related to foot and ankle injuries, and has offered instruction on the entire orthopedic curriculum over the years, primarily focused on orthopedic assessments, intervention, and manual therapy.

With the partnership between Strulowitz & Gargiulo Physical Therapy and Twin Boro Physical Therapy that began in 2019, Carl has been able to continue working towards his vision of providing the best quality care to as many patients as possible.  As clinic director of Strulowitz & Gargiulo-Twin Boro Physical Therapy at RWJ Barnabas JCMC and CMMC, he will be using the new resources available to him to improve and update the services offered with the goal of further optimizing and simplifying the patient experience.  His treatment method is focused on assisting patients as they progress through the entire continuum of care, from impairment, to function, and finally to participation, which correlates directly with Twin Boro’s One2FourTM Care Model to determine the “right level of health care” for each individual.  Through his educational background and teaching experience, he also makes it a primary focus to incorporate evidence-based principles into his daily practice in all treatment decisions.


Jersey City - Patient Reviews

Susan Lawrence
Highly recommend Twin Boro! I had the best experience, went in hurt, in pain and feeling vulnerable. Graduated from my program stronger than ever. I'm sure, what I learned there will save me from future injuries as well.

Tricia was best pt that I’ve had ever. Since my injury she’s been aiding me through my recovery and the work environment is so positive. I reached goals that I was too afraid to reach. Thank you to the staff and community for helping me through my journey.
Saneisha Mainor
Sue is the best PT in the world and everyone else who works here is very nice and friendly.
Deborah McWilliams
This was a great place for me to do my physical therapy for my knee. The staff was professional, yet friendly, helpful and answered all of my questions. The staff kept me laughing and made the physical therapy sessions easy and fun. I like the fact that they have early hours. The location was clean and near public transit as well as a parking lot is provided. It made my physical therapy less of a burden and more of a joy. I highly recommend them and should the need arise in the future for more physical therapy, this is the place I will be returning to.
K Usman

Anthony Ousman
Hopefully I never have another injury, but if I do, I will definitely be coming to this practice. The front desk staff is amazing, and they somehow remember all of the patients names. They are also very accommodating to appointment dates/times and will work with your schedule.I had the pleasure of working with Tricia who is extremely detailed with showing you different exercises/stretches, and slowly progresses you at your own pace. She is caring for her patients and is an absolute comic. I also had the pleasure of meeting other physical therapist (Joyce, Andre, Carl) and floor staff that are there to guide you if you need any help with exercises/stretches.The practice is extremely clean and there is plenty of parking spaces across the street.Wonderful experience, and highly recommend this place if you need physical therapy.
Ryan McLaughlin

I've had an excellent experience here! Evan was very kind, caring and professional and helped get me back to my daily activities quickly. All of the folks at S&G are very kind. They provide a warm, welcoming environment and great care to their patients. I would recommend S&G to anyone who needs PT! Thank you, Evan and staff!
Jazmin Brown
Awesome experience! I loved the therapists & staff, and they have helped me greatly. I’ve seen amazing progress post-surgery as a collegiate athlete. Couldn’t have done it without them!
Justin Funari
I was a patient here for about thirty weeks, where all of the therapists assisted me in pre-hab, nursing the existing injury I already had prior to attending TwinBoro. I owe Dr. Gargiulo and the rest of the team for getting me through my final season of athletics at my University, with them assisting me strengthen my shoulder before surgery, as well as minimize the pain and discomfort through various mediums of treatment. After my shoulder surgery, the extensive rehab program under the supervision of Dr. Gargiulo went far better than I had been expecting. I progressed at a faster pace than any of us had previously thought. Thanks to Dr. Gargiulo and TwinBoro, I am back to my original active lifestyle after months and months of pain before attending. Thank you for everything TwinBoro!

When my 4 year old son , Mason, broke his leg via a freak accident, I was horrified and so scared. I had no experience with physical therapy. All I knew was that I was referred to this place who was supposed to help him. Not only did they help, but they loved my son back to health. Mason looked forward to his biweekly sessions with Dr. Trisha. Dr. Trisha is amazing! She is the sweetest, most kind hearted, patient doctor ever. Dealing with a 4 year old is never easy but she was gentle and understanding with my son. She answered all of our questions and quieted our concerns. I felt so happy that someone with her level of expertise and kindness was in charge of nursing my son back to health. Mason recently made a full recovery and is walking back normal all due to dr. Trisha and the twin Boro team. The facility is well ran, immaculate, and very professional. We never waited longer than five minutes and receive excellent care. Overall I’d rate my experience a 10/10. Thanks again to Dr. Trisha and the whole Twinboro team for nursing Mason back to health.
