Our History

Shannon, Steve, Chris & Janet Albanese

Barbara Albanese taught her boys that helping others is a rewarding and noble way to live life. Chris and Steve Albanese took those lessons to heart and built careers in physical therapy.  When they saw how patients were treated at the clinics where they worked as young therapists, they knew they could find a better way.

They started with one small clinic in Montgomery NY, and have grown their practice over the years to more than 35 locations on the East Coast.

Knowing your practice is what you have made it, is a great feeling. Your heart and soul poured into an office for the purpose of bettering the lives of those you treat. It is no longer a job, but a lifestyle of choice

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for quality physical therapy practices that share our values to join the Access family. Whether you’re looking to exit the practice or to continue as the director while relegating the administrative work to our dedicated administrative staff, partnering with Access might be the solution you’re looking for.

Maintain What Makes Your Clinic Unique With Our Support

With our years of experience, we understand each practice is different. That’s one of the best things about Access PT & Wellness, each clinic has it’s own style shaped by the skills and personalities of the individual clinicians.

We offer opportunities that are personalized for your practice. We believe that a 100% PT-owned business model can compete with corporate clinics–when we work together to support each other.

Superior patient outcomes and exceptional patient care are the two factors that drive our business, and thus we need outstanding clinicians to carry on our standards.   We want you to reach your full potential, and are here to help; this is our true passion!

The Partnership Process

Introductory Meeting with Business Development

We know what you do and we may even have an idea how you do it… Speak with our head of Business Development to tell us the WHY. We’re hear to listen and offer solutions.

Confidentiality and Building Trust

Making the decision to seek assistance with your practice is one we take very seriously. We’ll send you a confidentiality agreement before or after our first conversation to ensure your practice information and trade secrets are protected.

In Person/Virtual Meetings and Due Diligence

Depending on your location, we may speak face to face or, speak virtually. If both parties decide there are synergies worth exploring, we will exchange due diligence. This is all of the key information needed to put a value on your practice and evaluate the partnership.


Throughout the M&A process, we will maintain constant communication with our potential partners. It is essential to the process to build rapport and get comfortable enough to discuss financials and everything you’ve built to this point.

Fair and Equitable Value

When it comes to the valuation, we bring a great deal of experience on deal structure and what works well for both parties. But, we encourage utilizing professional counsel on financial and legal matters and we exercise transparency throughout the process

Why Partner With Access

The Partnership Model

Our model provides the administrative, HR, billing, marketing, business development, training and development, IT, and financial support you need to run a successful practice.

Concentrate on providing quality care and give yourself more time to focus on what you enjoy. Get the opportunity to repurpose that time and energy for greater value creation, while having the autonomy of an owner, but without the stress!

Get paid for what you’ve built, take money off the table now and make your retained equity be worth more in 3-5 years, than your original 100%.

Don’t want equity? Okay, we’ll still offer you a guaranteed salary plus profit sharing incentives to share in the success and growth of the practice!
