The therapists demonstrate and help youPatiently to execute each exercise correctly. Each exercise is carefully chosen to progressively improve your condition. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional.
Excellent attention to detail and provided a successful plan to return my knee and legs to full strength. I’ll take what they taught me and incorporate the exercises into personal workouts. It was a pleasure to work with the staff and they accommodative to my schedule.
I went to Excel Physical Therapy in Glen Rock in February 2024. I had a meniscus tear repair surgery over a year prior. Unfortunately my recovery didn’t go as I would have hoped. I developed a Lot of scar tissue. This scar tissue made my knee frozen at a 20° angle. After a year of walking with a limp and my prior PT exhausted, I went for another surgery in February to remove the scar tissue.I say all that to say, Robert Egermayer did a miracle considering how Late in the game he came in.He was so honest and realistic about what he could do. He pushed me and I'm so grateful for that. At this point I was extremely discouraged and didn’t think I could get much better. The equipment at his facility are state of the art. He continued to change my work out as I improved. I started seeing improvements every week to everyday!I was extremely impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. He treated everyone who came in like family . He cared about my outcome. He made me laugh when I felt like crying but most of all he gave me Hope! I walk a Thousand times better than I ever did before! I know it’s because of Robert and his staff! He makes everyone feel like they’re his favorite lolHis physical therapist assistants are just as knowledgeable and caring. They are kind and walk you through every exercise. they will model for you to ensure you’re doing it right. Andrew ,Olivia and Caeley are the best! They make coming to PT a joy!I would Highly recommend this facility to anyone going through anything that needs physical therapy! They even have a massage therapist! I can’t recommend this place and the staff enough! Kudos to them!
Robert and his staff were incredible. The therapy was better than any other I have received for my back. He really got me to focus on core and helped ease the pain with core building exercises. Highly recommend Excel Glen Rock
I had a great experience with therapists Sarah and Robert. I definitely recommend Excel in Glen Rock.
My four-year-old was a patient of Robert's for three months after fracturing his jaw from a ski accident. "Mr. Robert" provided the best care for my son and the two of them developed a very special bond.From a medical standpoint, our oral surgeon is very pleased with how well my son's jaw healed. It is no easy feat to have a small child stay focused, but Robert was able to keep my son engaged through every session and work hard while also keeping it fun.From a personal standpoint, Robert helped not only my son, but also me through a very difficult time. I was very concerned about my son, the injury and the potential long-term ramifications to the jaw. Robert had a positive attitude at every session and was very patient and thorough in answering all of my questions. He was truly a light during a very dark time. An exceptionally kind human being.The greatest testament to Robert as both a professional and a person is that my child now wants to be a physical therapist when he grows up!
Highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy in Glen Rock. I had a total knee replacement in January. Recovery from the surgery is better than I thought. I saw Robert the next day after leaving the hospital. I am seeing him 3x a week. After 3 weeks, I was able to use cane from a walker. After 6 weeks, was able to walk without a cane. After 2 months, I have about 90% of full bend/flexibility motion of my knee. I am able to walk 1 mile on my treadmill. Walking normal and Robert stated, “no one would know I had total knee replacement with my gait (the way I walk.)”Robert is great and will explain how the exercises will help. He adjusts exercises based on your progress. He will let you record the exercises for you so that you can do them at home. Andrew and Oliva, his assistants, are personable and great to work with. Very easy to schedule appointments. The facility is huge, and has lots of equipment. The office is an in-network facility with my insurance.
Robert and the team are results oriented and listen to your goals.
Rob worked with me for 2 weeks prior to referring me to a specialist since my knee was not doing well. After seeing the specialist it was agreed surgery would be necessary. Dr. Kissin was very clear and open about what would be necessary and my surgery experience was fantastic!!!Since my surgery (right meniscus tear), I have been working with Rob and team 3x a week and have progressed very fast and am feeling 1000% better over the past few weeks.I can see the light at the end of the tunnel wear I will be able to be active just as I was prior to the injury. Thanks Rob and Team.
I had 14 physiotherapy sessions and managed to achieve all my goals. All employees are very nice and attentive to details. I’m grateful for the all work done.
I recently pinched a nerve in my nerve and immediately called Robert for help. Within 2 weeks, I felt great and was able to return to all activities. Thank you Robert!
Mr. Egermeyer and his team has helped me get back in the game. They all work really well and are exceptional in his craft. Rob works well with his clients and is very engaging and is not only an incredible therapist, but a great person to be around. I highly recommend.
I was a patient/client (I could also say a student, since I learned a lot) of Robert Egermayer for almost six months, during the grueling rehabilitation from an ACL reconstruction surgery. Robert is a talented therapist, a virtuoso if you will. He prepared a rigorous, and a demanding program for me, which allowed me to regain complete control of my knee. Most importantly, he gave me a sense of optimism with respect to my trauma and the prognosis for recovery. The road to healing is not a straight line as I learned, and Robert truly gave me confidence in the ability of my mind and body to face this journey without anxiety. He understands the body and its reaction to injury very well, and he also knows how to repair and train the body. All of his predictions came through, and he adjusted the program to my needs along the way. I most wholeheartedly recommend Excel Therapy, Robert and his team of assistants as the best tool for any restorative therapy. Robert Egermayer really went above and beyond what I expected a physical therapist to accomplish. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, professional and attentive to his individual patients' needs. He also profoundly cares about YOUR wellbeing. He will not coddle or sugarcoat the reality of the effort expected from you, but will enable you to recover and fulfill your healing potential. He will make you work, but he also will give you hope, and provide real, measurable, objective results. Thanks to Robert I am back to enjoying my favorite physical activities, and living the life I want to live. Thanks Rob.
Three and a half months ago I had a quadricep autograft ACL reconstruction surgery on my knee. Since my surgery I have gone to physical therapy three times a week and have already been able to return to my normal routine. The physical therapist Robert is incredibly knowledgeable and has been supportive along my journey to recovery. Along with Robert, the assistants Olivia and Andrew have helped me through my exercise routines and always keep me motivated. If you are looking for a physical therapist I cannot recommend anyone other than Robert and his team at Excel Physical Therapy.
Robert has previously treated both my parents and my brother. When I injured my shoulder in January it was finally my turn. I now understand why my family has been loyal to him and his team for years.Robert, Andrew, and Olivia have tailored a unique treatment plan for my injury over the last few months and have thoroughly explained each step along the way. I am consistently impressed by their extensive knowledge and professionalism, and I am extremely confident being in their hands. Robert has also cultivated a fun and welcoming environment that gets me excited for my visits every Monday / Friday. My shoulder feels better than ever thanks to their guidance. I highly recommend Robert and his team at Excel PT in Glen Rock!
My experience with “Big Rob” as he’s affectionately known has been outstanding and a blast. The team is always a pleasure to work with. And they make hard work feel fun. -Ben, age 16, weekly visits ongoing
Robert took the time to understand my ailment and develop a plan to treat me. With additional guidance from Andrew and Olivia, I was challenged with various exercises to strengthen my legs while also working on my balance to help with my mobility. The entire staff is courteous, well-trained and capable. Thank you for the excellent care!
The team at Excel GR is helpful, professional and extremely knowledgeable. They take the time to educate you so you can understand your injury, as well as the stretches/exercises, making sure you’re doing them correctly. They design a program catered to your injury and are consistently making sure you are performing the exercise correctly. The facility is also spotless because they diligently sanitize and clean all of the equipment used.I have had great success in repairing a glute injury and now Robert and his team has successfully treated my whole family, all with varying needs. We are grateful to have found the team at Excel GR and highly recommend them to friends and family.
Robert at Excel Physical Therapy is amazing! He meets you were you are at and knows how to get you better in a way that’s supportive for your current situation. He has helped me several times with different issues and each experience was just what my body needed. Highly recommend him!
Robert, Andrew and Olivia have taken great care of myself and my husband. We have been going at Excel PT for a few weeks now and can and on just a few weeks we can feel the difference. From discomfort and pain to getting stronger.Robert is very knowledgeable, professional & personable. He is very patient and answers all the questions I have.Andrew & Olivia do a fantastic job assisting. They are very professional and personable.I would highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy!!
I came to Excel Physical Therapy in significant pain in my dominant arm from an injury. Robert Egermayer and his team were terrific. After only a month of sessions I achieved my goals, had no more pain in my arm and felt 100% better. Highly recommend!
Great team, very patient, very knowledgable- got me back on my feet fast!
It's the second health issue that I am handling with this practice, and I find Robert and his team very professional and helpful. In both cases, my issues were resolved (with manual therapy and exercises), so I highly recommend!
I cannot praise Excel Physical Therapy highly enough! My experience here has been nothing short of miraculous. After struggling for months with little progress at another facility across town, I decided to give Excel Physical Therapy a try after my physician's recommendation. From the moment I walked in, I knew I was in good hands.In just four visits, I experienced more improvement than I did in two frustrating months elsewhere. The difference was like night and day. What sets Excel apart is their incredible team. Their expertise and dedication to my well-being were evident from the start.One thing that truly impressed me was how the team handled any questions or concerns about my treatment. They didn't hesitate to reach out to my doctor for clarification and promptly made adjustments to my therapy plan for the next visit. This level of communication and collaboration ensured that I received the most effective care tailored to my specific needs.Overall, my experience at Excel has been incredible. I'm so grateful for the exceptional care I've received here, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy. Thank you, Robert, Andrew, Olivia, and the entire team, for helping me on my journey to recovery!
This is officially my 3rd wk & I must say what an experience. When scheduling an appt ova the phone I was greeted by the BEST customer service rep. in my 43yrs of life. Her name was Maria btw. Friendly, swift, efficient & catered to my availability best way she could. So nice! Upon arrival, I was hoping to meet this Maria in the flesh but instead met Andrew. Who was also welcoming, resourceful & proactive. Lastly, I met Robert Egermayer. Licensed PT & director of the facility. I was apprehensive @ 1st but was comfortable within min. He’s wise, listens & his delivery is always gentle. I trust him & believe his instruction is helping because I’ve been in agony. Anyhew let me stop rambling but the music choice & cleanliness throughout the facility is appreciated. Love this place & the bathroom lol Highly recommended… if u need to feel like new again, this is the place 💯
I am a slip and fall risk. I recently began physical therapy and I see a big improvement in one month. Thanks to Robert and Olivia & Andrew I have strengthened my balance. I am continuing for the whole three months. I want as much as I can get out of my sessions.
I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at Excel. I started in Creskill with Nick Daniels., he was terrific and really helped me so much but the office was a little far for me. I switched to the Glen Rock facility and am now seeing Robert Egermayer, who seems so knowledgeable and I have no doubt that he will continue to help me to feel better!
I haven't consistently done physical therapy until now. I would go a few times, and when the pain improved, I would stop the treatment. As a nurse who mainly stands for 12 hours a day, I wondered how effective weekly therapy sessions would be.However, this time was different. Robert was professional and guided me through my treatment process step by step. Starting with a 10-minute warm-up, he taught me various exercises I could do for 50 minutes.In addition to exercise therapy, they offer ultrasound, manual therapy, taping, and more.The office staff is also professional and friendly. They are on top of things like exercise assistance and scheduling appointments. I sincerely recommend this place!
I highly recommend my physical therapist Robert for his exceptional care in aiding my recovery from a troublesome knee issue. Robert and Andrew’s expertise and ongoing support have not only alleviated the initial problem but are now significantly improving the flexibility of my hips. Grateful for their dedication and skill.
Great physical therapy place. Went here after acl surgery and excel helped me come out stronger than I was coming in. Robert is great and the team is as well. Andrew and Olivia always worked diligently to make sure I could recover to 100%. The place has a really family like atmosphere which is always welcoming. Def would recommend.
Robert and his staff have been helping me recover from a torn Achilles over the past few months. When I first met Robert, I was not able to put weight on my foot but within a few weeks, he and his team had me walking without crutches and regaining mobility in my ankle. He has a whole body approach and focuses on strengthening each muscle group to ensure a healthy, strong recovery. Robert is knowledgeable, dynamic, and attentive to each patient. He runs a welcoming and friendly facility that is extremely clean. Every time I go I feel closer to my goal of regaining full use of my ankle and resuming my normal activities. I highly recommend Robert and his Excel Physical Therapy team.
I’ve known Robert for at least 6 years, and he and the office staff have always been very helpful and accommodating, especially when it came to special requests (like coming in on a weekend for a PT session, when the office was officially closed, because I needed to be extra careful not to be around other customers, not to catch Covid). Robert is a super-knowledgeable and caring professional, always ready to help and explain why we’re performing certain exercises, and why they’re necessary. He and the office staff helped me restore my “frozen shoulder” condition back to normal. He also treated my wife, my mother-in-law, as well as my children for various conditions (back, knees, jaw). The facility is always clean, brightly lit, uncluttered, and ready for the next patient. I would highly recommend Robert and the crew for any of your PT needs!
I started working with Robert because of an arthritic hip. Couldn’t even walk the dog, let alone walk to the park with my wife and granddaughter.Within a matter of a few weeks, Robert and his team, with focused attention, extended my range of motion exponentially and with limited pain. He changed my daily life for the better. This group not only knows what they’re doing but the place is welcoming and friendly.I highly recommend them.Gary Weiss - Glen Rock, NJ
I have been coming here for the past 20 years rehabbing a herniated ruptured disc in my back and double knee replacements. Robert is an amazing physical therapist and the facility is clean, comfortable and friendly. The staff with Andrew and Olivia is excellent. I recommend this place wholeheartedly.
Robert the Physical Therapist is amazing. I had gone to other PTs and none of them could help me with my hip pain and also my TMJ. He did wonders with the pain I was having for so long. Feels great not to be in pain anymore. He is the best. I recommend him %100.Can’t thank him enough!
My teenaged son visits the Glen Rock location on an ongoing weekly basis. He actually loves going. Robert & his team are professional, approachable and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this practice.
Great place. Robert is very thorough. Got me back to skiing after disc surgery in 8 weeks.
This place is fantastic. Robert Egermayer has tons of experience & expertise no matter what your Physical Therapy needs are. He will explain the plan and exercizes you should do, monitor your progress and surround himself with great staff. Super clean location in Glen Rock (South Broad Street) with tons of space and gear, the appointment system works very well and even the music playlist gets adjusted whether its early morning or middle of the day.
I have been extremely happy with my therapy with Robert. Both he and his assistant, Andrew, were always knowledgeable, compassionate, accommodating, and friendly. I usually had my therapy sessions in the morning and visiting them was a wonderful start to my day!
My 89 year-old Mom needed PT on her knee and back. Pandemic-related inactivity had really taken a toll on her mobility.I've been to plenty of PT facilities over the years and I was worried about taking her to a place with one or two therapists covering half a dozen people at once. As a result, I was extremely happy to find Excel Physical Therapy in Glen Rock.Her therapy sessions are always one-on-one and tailored to her conditioning and goals.The facility itself is spacious and clean, with an excellent range of therapeutic equipment. Robert, the director, is very knowledgeable, professional & personable, not to mention patient as my elderly Mom learns the exercises.Andrew & Olivia, who work with Robert, have always been consistently professional and personable, as well.This is an excellent PT place. Highly recommended.
I am recovering from total knee replacement surgery, and to say is has been tough is an understatement. Robert is very knowledgeable and has been a tremendous help. I am getting better each time I go to a session. I don't know where I would be without all of his help. Also, the assistant, Andrew, is very personable and does a great job keeping me on task and making sure I do all of my exercises correctly.
Robert has been great and super flexible to come even on weekends to help me recover. He checks always regularly on how I am doing. I would not go anywhere else.
Robert was fantastic! After serious ankle surgery, less than 6 months ago, I can walk well again. He led me through many different exercises that helped me regain strength and balance. He is an expert in the field.
Robert and his staff were very good about working with my schedule. Robert is very good at explaining things, and was very attentive in making sure I was doing my exercises properly. The clinic has a very laid back feel and I enjoyed coming. Robert’ experience in physical therapy is invaluable.
I had a great experience at Excel Physical Therapy in Glen Rock.All of the exercises targeted the correct muscles and I had significant improvement within weeks.The facility was nice as well - - highly recommended.
Was always met with the best service, they were very understanding of situations/injuries and were fully supportive. Their team was full of highly professional, motivated, and respectful people.
Glen Rock office staff is very professional and knowledgeable. This group made my physical therapy very pleasant. 😁
Fantastic attentive staff. Robert is amazing. Helped me with multiple issues
