Meet Our Team


Lacey E. Bromley



Jacob I. McPherson


Drs. McPherson and Bromley have nearly 30 years of combined experience working with and learning from Sue Bennett. While no one will ever replace Sue’s presence, their complementary roles and experiences have provided the necessary leadership to continue the practice’s mission of providing high-quality comprehensive physical therapy services to the WNY community.

Both Lacey and Jake have earned Doctoral degrees in Physical Therapy from the University at Buffalo and have since gone on to achieve Board Certification in Neurologic Rehabilitation through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Both have also achieved advanced credentials in Vestibular Rehabilitation through highly-recognized training with Emory University and the APTA.

Additionally, Dr. Bromley earned her PhD in Rehabilitation Science with a research focus on metabolic and physical function in individuals with neurodegenerative conditions. Outside of her clinical practice, she is an Associate Professor within the physical therapy program at D’Youville college, is active in research and publishes peer reviewed articles regularly. For over a decade she has taught numerous continuing education programs across the US and internationally.

Beyond clinical practice and management, Dr. McPherson leads our Post-Concussion Program and has been active in training other physical therapists in concussion and vestibular management through various continuing education programs. He has contributed to multiple peer reviewed publications and is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University at Buffalo where he trains doctoral students in neurologic rehab and also conducts research related to traumatic brain injury.

As Bennett Rehabilitation continues to serve the needs of our community, the practice is dedicated to preserving and building upon its reputation for excellence in clinical care. Our clinicians are committed to meeting the individual needs of their patients.
