Dr. Pamela Kokoros, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist
Pronouns: She/Her

I spent my early childhood in Brooklyn where my family members occupied the neighboring homes and I played with my cousins until our mothers called us in for dinner. I spent most of my life in Rockland County where I discovered the wonders of nature and some of my best friends. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Anthropology from Fordham University and spent several years after that writing for various publications about health and running. I made the decision to become a physical therapist after injuring my quadriceps muscles during a race. I experienced my first pain free marathon after participating in physical therapy. After seeing first hand what physical therapy could do and how effortless running became with my PT’s guidance, I decided this was what I wanted to give other people. Being an expert in movement would also reinforce writing about health and fitness. I obtained my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Mercy College and have worked in both inpatient hospitals and outpatient clinics. I have experience with a large variety of orthopedic injuries, neurologic conditions, and have taken classes in pelvic floor and yoga for pain.

My goal is to get to know my patients and their lifestyles in order to work together and make modifications or implement specific tools that can decrease their pain and improve their ability to perform their favorite activities. With the incorporation of tools like manual therapy for myofacial release, specific exercises to encourage proper muscle engagement and promote stability and influence endurance, we work together as a team to personalize a plan of care unique to each patient’s needs.

Core Values: Kindness, self-care, keeping an open mind, jumping into new experiences

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

When I’m not working I am out hiking with my dogs, running in town to upbeat music, traveling and visiting historical sites with my husband, taking new yoga classes, making memories with my family and friends, and discussing a new book at book club.
