Amherst Physical Therapy was founded by Peter Schaus in 1978 at its original location in Amherst, NY. The office moved to Buffalo in 1981 and to its present location on Delaware Avenue in 1988. An expansion of the Delaware Avenue clinic in 2001 provided increased exercise facilities, equipment and an in-ground therapeutic pool in order to facilitate early rehabilitation for all orthopedic injuries, arthritic conditions and chronic pain syndromes.
In 2016 the practice was sold to Martin R. Koslosky, PT, P.C., who will continue to provide the high-quality care that our patients expect.
