Spent 4 months with this team, recovering from a very painful back injury. The whole team is extremely friendly, sensitive and well-educated. Many years of experience with each of the PTs and it shows. Feels like a family there.Unfortunately, I re-injured my back. But the silver-lining is that I get to do another stint with these guys. :-)I can’t recommend them enough!
let me tell you about my experience at excel physical therapy. I had the pleasure of working with Kristina, Nikolas and Jancarlo. there was another female therapist in the morning who is always smiling and another young male assistant that resigned (sorry im bad with names) who were just as awesome. young ladies at the front desk were very sweet and kind. so first evaluation was with Kristina. I came in feeling doubtful and down from my injury. Kristina was very enthusiastic and professional. right away i felt comfortable during my initial consultation and I said to myself I came to the right place. due to my schedule availability I had to transfer to Nikolas because my schedule matched his. I was afraid to leave Kristina but Nikolas turned out to be another great physical therapist. he definitely knew what he was doing. he and his program helped rebuild both my confidence and strengthen my meniscus torn knee. nikolas has the magic touch, he will answer all of your questions and adress all of your concerns. his assistant jancarlo was also excellent. he is well mannered, sociable and full of energy. I happen to be a Healthcare professional myself and you can tell these guys are definitely in healthcare for the right reasons you can tell they love what theyre doing. but let's forget about the medical aspect for a second, these guys will get you back on your feet. let's talk about my real experience coming to this facility on a twice a week basis. I've seen these guys interact with each other, interact with other patients. they treat everyone the same out of the kindness of their own heart. they are having fun engaging with each other, as well as patients. Just positive vibes overall from the front desk, to the assistants, the therapists. fun music playing in the background, clean environment, everyone always with a smile on their face, acknowledging everyone in the facility, great conversations, I can go on and on. but I loved coming here. to the facility managers well done handpicking and putting together a great staff. I can't say enough about my experience, but I was sad to end my therapy session because these guys were my friends on Tuesdays and Thursdays mornings for 3 months. kristina, take care and keep up that joyful and enthusiastic vibe. jancarlo, you're gonna do great things my man, such a great personality. Nikolas, congrats on your new endeavors and I wish you nothing but the best, youre a good dude. you guys feel like family, and I can't thank you enough. may be ill see you guys around the area. keep up the great work and best wishes. thank you for everything--Chris.
Great super supportive staff, good location and everyone is friendly & helpful! Nik got me back in working order which I didn’t feel was possible! I’m so grateful and appreciative of what he was able to do for me!
Very happy with the physical therapy I receive at Excel. It was my first experience. Nike was my therapist. He was professional and very patient!. I was always taken on time.
Compassionate kind staff! They monitored my progress and adjusted exercises as needed. Danielle and Giancarlo in particular made P/T a veryPositive experience. I’ve been to Excel more times than I would prefer, but I always left in much better condition. Thank you!
I can say thelat I have been to quite a few PT places and dealt with many different P Therapists. Nick and staff are top notch, very professional and I didn't become bored when the program. Nick listened when I said it was too hard or too easy and I was able to get to the point of being released from PT after 8 weeks with no atrophy. I have more surgeries coming my way and I will definitely be coming back and will recommend to any that asks of a PT location. Job well done!!!
I never write reviews but I will here. I tore my meniscus back in the 1977 Boston Marathon and managed that injury over years of distance running, tennis and skiing until it finally became unmanageable and I thought both knees were done, that is until my orthopedic referred me to Excel and Nikolas Rivera. Nick is nothing short of a miracle worker. With hard work directed and driven by Nick, and the whole team supporting me at Excel in Cresskill, I have my knees back to a great place. I can't say enough about Nick, and everyone at Excel.
I had a wonderful experience at Excel Therapy. I went in after a knee replacement and had Nicholas as my therapist. He was so professional, extremely knowledgeable and caring. I was concerned that while doing exercises I would totally be on my own, not knowing if I was doing them correctly . I have to say Nicholas always checked on me to be certain I was properly doing all exercises.He always changed my exercises depending on what I needed at that time for a fast recovery. I could not be more pleased with results of my therapy at Excel and would certainly return in the future if needed.Thank you for the wonderful care.
Very good punctual response
Excel is the best. Front end staff are great very helpful and kind. Manny is absolutely fantastic he did a very professional rehab on my knees and shoulder. I highly recommend Excel rehab in Cresskill NJ. PS the rehab aids are also very helpful.
I was very satisfied with my care at Excel Physical Therapy in Cresskill. Matt and Samantha are great physical therapist's and had a great care plan for me. Highly recommended.
Excel in Cresskill is hands down the best PT in the area. The entire staff is incredibly kind and welcoming, and all the physical therapists are the best of the best. Shoutout to Manny who completely transformed my back and neck pain that I had had since I was 13. I had many PTs in the past who didn’t know how to treat me. At 22, I found Manny and I began to improve exponentially. Manny instantly knew what the issues were and how to work on resolving them. He worked with me for 9 months on various problem areas that I had always thought were doomed to forever be in pain (neck, shoulder, middle back, lower back, to name a few). Since being discharged, I am prepared with many exercises targeted towards my specific areas of pain, and I know how to treat my pain should it return. I am so grateful to have been to excel and I would recommend them to anyone searching for a physical therapist.
Personal, excellent caliber PT! Christian is great! When one modality doesn’t seem to bring results he has something else for you to try! Very positive place! The whole team has your back!
Highly professional, knowledgeable and caring staff. Nick really helped with my back and my wife’s neck issues. Excellent!
Nick is the best!!! Everyone is very knowledgeable highly r recommend Excel
I went to Excel PT in Cresskill to rehab a shoulder injury and it was a great experience. Christian was fantastic and did a brilliant job coming up with an effective rehab strategy and my shoulder feels great. The entire staff was professional and pleasant. Highly recommend.
Have been to Excel Therapy in Cresskill many times in the past, the last being for a nagging hip injury. Special shout-out to Nick for his effort and determination in getting me back on track. He’s the best!
Very pleased with the facility and the excellent attention from the therapists and assistants. Progress towards my personal goals is steadily advancing.
Received therapy for a nagging ankle injury. Everyone is so kind in answering your questions and helpful in assisting your workout regimen. Shout out to Ben Isola and the staff for getting me back to full health. Huge thanks!
The staff is amicable and attentive. The staff is knowledgeable and will answer any question you have. The exercises that are done are designed to help areas that need repair specifically. The facility is clean and organized. I have never seen a dirty towel or wet surface so far. I have never waited more than a couple of minutes to be serviced. The cost is $50 without insurance. I highly recommend Excel physical therapy. Professional Athletes have been to the Rutherford and Fort Lee locations.
Liz is the best therapist I ever had she made my flat foot disappear after a couple of month plus she is very sweet and caring.
This is my second time going to Excel Orthopedic! Matt my physical therapist is just wonderful with his healing hands!! He was able to get me back to the gym shortly after I threw my back out!! The staff are extremely friendly. I am pleased with my experience.
Staff very friendly, and very effective PT!
I went to Cresskill Excel for my pre-op ACL rehab and they were very welcoming, professional, etc. I worked with Pon most of the time and he was unbelievable. Very insightful, cares about his patients, and really listens so that he can come up with the right remedy for your situation.
