Dr. Jhoanna Roa earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from New York University. While studying at NYU, Jhoanna also became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

Jhoanna’s love for physical therapy started when she herself was a patient after sustaining a knee injury while playing soccer. Jhoanna experienced the benefits of a dedicated team working together to help her achieve her goal of returning to play soccer and she felt inspired to do the same for others.

Having grown up in Bayside, Jhoanna has fond memories of the Bay Terrace community and is honored to be able to provide quality care and tailored treatment plans to its individuals who find themselves limited in their daily activities.

When Jhoanna is not helping people move better she can be found playing with her pets – a handsome dog named Loki and a curious cat named Whiskey. Jhoanna also enjoys cooking, baking and, of course, eating delicious foods. Her friends and family are especially fond of her stuffed shells and brownies. She’ll happily show you pictures of her pets but maybe you can try asking for some proof regarding those brownies.
