Welcome to NPBTC

The idea for the Neurology, Psychiatry and Balance Therapy Center (NPBTC) started as a meeting of the minds of founders Sonya Knight, DO, FAAN and James Barsky, PT, DPT when they met in 2008.

At the time, Dr. Knight, a board certified neurologist and psychiatrist, and Dr. Barsky, a licensed physical therapist, were caring for patients in hospital settings in the greater Philadelphia, PA area. As they grew to know each other and learn more about each other’s specialties, Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky began to realize the natural fit between their areas of expertise.

Dr. Knight’s specialties, neurology and psychiatry, both deal with the workings of the brain and have a tremendous amount of overlap. Dr. Barsky’s field, physical therapy, treats multiple organ systems, including the brain, but focuses on treatments to allow people to perform the activities they need to do in their daily life. Further, Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky found that they had interest in common conditions that affect many people of all ages – dizziness and balance disorders.

Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky came to see the tremendous benefit to patients that would come from them joining forces. Working together as a team, they could provide the best multi-disciplinary treatment plans and care for their patients. Moreover, they could treat not only the physical signs of their patients’ conditions, but also the emotional and behavioral responses that affect patients with dizziness, balances difficulties, seizures and other neurologic and orthopaedic conditions.

In 2011, Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky were married and set out to open their own practice, Neurology, Psychiatry and Balance Therapy Center. Dr. Knight knew this was the key to enabling her to combine her specialties in her practice and work with patients on a physical level as a neurologist and an emotional level as a psychiatrist.

In June 2012, Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky opened the doors of NPBTC to the Blue Bell community and surrounding areas. In addition to working together to help patients manage their dizziness, balance disorders and seizures, Dr. Knight and Dr. Barsky welcome and treat patients with a variety of  neurologic, psychiatric, and physical therapy needs.
