After graduating from New York Medical College, Suzanne began working in an outpatient clinic in Hackensack, NJ focusing on orthopedic, post-operative rehabilitation, and sports-related injuries. It was during this time that Suzanne realized the importance of the pelvic floor when treating patients, and she discovered her passion for women’s health. She received her pelvic floor certification from Herman and Wallace and launched a pelvic floor treatment program at the orthopedic practice.

Suzanne uses her well-rounded background in orthopedic and pelvic floor physical therapy to treat each patient with an individualized, multi-dimensional treatment program. Her treatments include manual skills, therapeutic exercises, neuromuscular re-education, and biofeedback to help them reach their therapy goals.

“I highly recommend Dr. Suzanne Fuchs-Coffey from this practice for her Pelvic Floor PT services. I
worked with her prenatally and postnatally. She always makes me very much at ease, is very gentle and
her exercises are simple and effective very quickly. I highly recommend going to talk to her if you consider
working with a PT.” – said a patient.
