I worked with Kelley for a total of 9 months to build back strength and recover post surgery. She was so friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging through the entire journey. She really made me feel confident and taken care of. I couldn’t have asked for a better PT. Thank you Kelley!

Went for lymphedema. Everyone was very nice.
21:04 27 Jul 21
Without hesitation I am recommending the Blue Bell location of Excel Physical Therapy. I found myself referred there for Vestibular dysfunction/Vertigo and as soon as my first session with Wendy Hafner I felt some relief from symptoms. Equally important I felt understood and confident that teamwork would lead to a full recovery. Due to scheduling, I had a few of my sessions with Bridget and received the same excellent care. Even the front desk is friendly and accommodating! I can't thank you enough for helping me feel like myself again. Jennifer

This place notably gets you moving again, they also tell you why you are doing a certain exercise. To do an exercise is great, but to understand why you are doing it is more important. Doing an exercise the wrong way is not to your advantage.

Michelle is a very knowledgeable, personable PT. Her goal is to give the patient the tools they need! Working with her has been a great experience

After having my hip replaced, I developed lymphedemia. I found Kelley Frank , and she literally saved me alot of needless pain and swelling. Kelley not only "cured" my lymphedemia she also helped eleviate my scar tissue and muscle pain, Kelley is a most personable person, she gives you honest answers to questions and explains everything.I cannot recommend this practice highly enough, especially for having a specialist like Kelley.
22:22 24 Mar 21
Excellent 1-on-1 physical therapy, from kind and qualified professionals. Highly recommend!

I recently started seeing Katie De Blasi for physical therapy. She is welcoming, professional and compassionate. I’m already seeing results! Reception staff was great with dealing with my complicated insurance requirements. I’d highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy.

When I started with Excel Therapy in October 2020, I was in a lot of pain, including lower back, leg/knee, and neck pain. Jack took the time to analyze my problems and figured out which exercises would be most beneficial to my needs. The pain that used to go down my leg is gone, and my left knee has improved from the exercise routine. In addition, recently I haven’t experienced any of the spasms that used to lock up my left knee and leg! When my back starts to bother me, now I know what stretch to do for relief!Going to Excel for therapy was a pleasant experience. Jack is an excellent therapist! He made my therapy enjoyable and worthwhile.Thank you Jack and Excel Therapy!

This was the first time I use this physical therapist. I had pain in my hip and I was not sure that a physical therapist could help it. I have used physical therapy in the past and usually they are pretty good, but this one was excellent! She worked with me over three weeks and at the end The pain was gone. I highly recommend the Blue Bell office because they are able to work with you to fix the issue. Many of the therapists have doctorate degrees which impressed me. I would definitely go back there again.

Very personalized therapy. All of the therapists are knowledgeable and highly motivated. Bridget is my therapist. She is the best; she quickly assessed my needs and designed a plan that is quickly bringing me results. Highly recommend. Plus this location is open and has all of the safety measures in place for Covid prevention. Free, easy parking, too.

Outstanding - highly recommend. Was treated by Angela Tate for shoulder and low back problems. Not my first rodeo with PT places. I look for 3 things -- experts in PT, provides a warm and caring environment, and is a well-run/efficient practice. Angela and the Excel staff in Blue Bell knock it out of park on all three.Angela is a nationally recognized expert in shoulder problems (PhD, published research papers, active research studies in US and globally) and is an experienced overall Physical therapist. She brings that cutting edge knowledge to her patients and knows what techniques work best - based not only on her own experience, but also what the research literature has demonstrated.Angela combines her significant clinical expertise with a friendly, warm, and caring approach. From her careful questioning on symptoms to chit-chat about the weekends, she has a wonderful way of connecting with her patients. This combination is rare.Lastly, the practice is well-run and efficient. The front desk staff is friendly and capable. They are great at navigating the insurance maze and make scheduling a breeze.Have recommended Angela and Excel in Blue Bell to my wife and family...highly recommend them to you too.

I have used Apex several times, always with great results. My therapists have been Wendy and Dan; they are both very encouraging and very personable. I wouldn't go anywhere else for PT.
17:03 24 Dec 18
Great Place! They know what they are doing.
00:11 23 Dec 18
The best place ever. I have a back problem and I needed therapy badly. All the physical therapists there worked hard to help me and especially Wendy, she's the best. She does all the activities that help improve movement and reduce pain. She makes sure of your progress and your well being. Thank you APEX and Thank you Wendy!

If your Dr tells you surgery is the only option or come back every three months for an epidural shot and you don’t trust what you are hearing, it’s time you find Apex physiotherapy as they do offer alternatives and they are less invasive. My therapist knew I had a herniated disc as soon as I walked in there. And he offered me professional help to overcome it. All you need to bring is a resolve to get better and they do the rest.
02:45 04 Dec 18
I have been going to Apex Physical Therapy of and on for the last 15 years. I was treated by the physical therapists at Apex following knee surgery. Recently I have gone to Apex for balance issues following a mini stroke. I have nothing but the highest regard for the therapists there. They are the best for designing the appropriate therapy program needed by a patient.The front desk staff is very welcoming, they always greet me by my first name. The ambience of the place is very peaceful and calming. I have recommended Apex to my friends and relatives. I would not go any other place for physical therapy. I give Apex 5*****

Pleasant, professional, and accessible. Whatever your physical therapy needs are, APEX seems ready to help you address them in their intimate, but well designed and equipped environment. It is located in an easy to find location along Rt. 202 yet once inside, you are reminded that you are in the suburbs and can forget the hustle and bustle of the city a few miles away.
01:33 23 Oct 18
I have gone to Apex twice for physical therapy and have been totally satisfied each time. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. I am seen my appointment time and have never had to wait.

Angela Tate of Apex Therapy has been an amazing asset through my wife's recent injury. As a professional swimmer, injuries are often obscure and unique to the sport, thus making a specialist in swimmers' injuries a must. Though Angela (and the entire team at Apex) is capable of handling a wide variety of issues, having her expertise has been tremendously helpful in rehabilitating her injuries.
01:25 10 Jul 18
Everyone seems very pleasant and knowledgeable especially my therapist Angela Tate. Jill
20:58 04 Jul 18
There are no assistants here. You will only be seen by highly qualified professionals. I see a pelvic floor specialist...a rare find. I have also seen someone for herniated disks. I am amazed at my progress in both treatments. These people know what they are doing!Back again months later for my irritated herniated disks. DON'T DO CRUNCHES IF YOU HAVE A BAD NECK. Once again my therapist, Rachel, has worked miracles!
00:42 19 Jun 18
I love Apex in B lue Bell . The people are so friendly and the therapists do a wonderful job. If you need to rehab something this is the place to go!!

I have been coming to Apex for several years for various fractures and spine issues. Lisa, my physical therapist is wonderful and I keep coming back because of her professionalism and very patient treatment. Everyone here is so friendly and knowledgeable. I will only come to Apex whenever I need therapy in the future!!

This unsolicited review is in response to the excellent care I received at Apex in Blue Bell. I drive from Center City to receive treatment here because a friend recommended Angela Tate, PhD. I have been to the usual centers in town where treatment felt like I was an exercise for interns, or the menu of exercises were mechanical with no understanding of their connection to the injuries, where I felt like I was an object preventing the therapist from doing something more important. Admittedly, I am biased in that often male practitioners do not respect the needs of female patients, whether for sports or injuries from aging. The distress of not being able to perform a sport is an important life matter. Treatment at Apex has helped me to understand which specific exercises are helping, which moves are habitual and need to change, and to begin understanding limitations. Angela is excellent, you can tell she knows her craft and I get very good vibes at Apex from the fellow patients as well. I would not go anywhere else now.

I have been to Apex for PT 4 times in the last few years. The staff is very professional and talented. They are very precise and got me away from pain quickly. Best of all is the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. It is small enough to get to know everyone and everyone knows you. I recommend Apex without any reservations. Ron

01:12 27 Jun 17
Staff very knowledgeable and attentive. Focused rehab or general fitness are both served well.
02:15 24 Jun 17
I have avoided surgery through physical therapy treatments and resolved several pain issues. My therapist has an incredible understanding of how the body works and has helped me understand how best to take care of it. I have referred several friends who were also very satisfied with their treatments.
02:44 21 Jun 17
Offers a larger, more-equipped facility with many staff members providing progressive physical therapy to a broad cross-section of patients. Additionally physical fitness programs are available for customers who wish to transition into a body maintenance routine, either long-term, or as a transition to a traditional gym.

Five years ago I arrived at Apex PT in blue bell for lower back issues post pregnancy. Brian was amazing! He was kind and patient and answered all my many questions! He fixed all my issues and soon enough I was back to working out and running! After my third child, I arrived once again with horrible back issues post pregnancy. I couldn't run, I couldn't play sports, I couldn't pick up my kids, I was beside myself. Tim brown was my physical therapist this time around. He was absolutely and utterly amazing! He, like Brian, was patient and kind and wanted to see me get better just as badly as I did. Within four months, I was back to running. I could pick up my kids without pain and soon thereafter, I was back at the gym and playing soccer. The best part of my experience was that the therapists are just as happy to see you succeed and us patients are. I thank apex of blue bell for all my success and would recommend Tim and Brian to anyone! And believe me, I do!

I had a total knee replacement in April. It was a brutal painful experience. But I started PT at Apex with Wendy and I am doing great because of her excellent care. She encourages, pushes when needed and knows how to get the knee working again. I would highly recommend Apex and Wendy.

I was referred to Apex by my Podiatrist after a fall at work. My experience at the location in Blue Bell has been outstanding from the start. They are so accommodating to your schedule and willing to work with you. The receptionist Briana knows everyone by name and greets you everyday. Danielle, Tim and Michelle have been so great in strengthening my ankle and really know what they are doing. I could not be happier with the location I chose and definitely refer them. Thank you Apex!
23:58 01 May 17
The therapists at APEX are caring and competent. They listen and help with all aspects of your therapy. I worked with Brian who was excellent. I also noticed that other therapists were also caring.
23:15 17 Apr 17
This is the second time I have gone to Apex with lower back problems. Brian has been terrific in evaluating and effectively treating my condition. He even followed up to be sure I continued to be satisfied and gave me exercises to perform at home. The reception staff was also very helpful and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend Apex and their staff!
