Kim Pozharsky, 48, of North Bergen, was processed at the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office for three counts of third-degree unlicensed practice of physical therapy, Musella said in a statement.
On Monday, April 19th, 2021, detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit received information that Pozharsky, the CEO and founder of Personal Care Professionals sports rehabilitation and medical wellness center, was treating patients as a physical therapist without a license.
The Facility had also been known as First Step Solutions, Inc. and Kinu, Inc. and was located at 935 River Road in Edgewater.
The investigation revealed that Pozharsky performed physical therapy treatments on patients of Personal Care Professionals while unlicensed, and that he has never been licensed to practice physical therapy in the state of New Jersey.
According to the BCPO, he has been previously disciplined by the New Jersey State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners and barred from holding himself out to the public as a physical therapist or participating in any aspect of the care and treatment of patients.
On Monday, Pozharsky was processed at the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and released on his own recognizance pending a future Central Judicial Processing Court hearing.
Musella thanked the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners for their assistance in the investigation.
