I was Laura’s patient for over a month, getting PT on an injured elbow. She was professional, knowledgeable, and I always left feeling like I made progress. Laura got me back to work and I am thankful!
i strongly recommend this place. the staff is very helpful. therapist are very knowledgeable, I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder, and I strongly recommend Boo he cured me in few seasons.thank you Boo and excel therapy.
I went in for a knee injury that was preventing me from playing soccer. I ended up with Werner as my PT. He evaluated me and listened to my concerns. My first goal was to get back to kicking the ball, and my second goal was to avoid surgery. Werner took both of those seriously, and after 11 sessions, I can kick the ball again without any pain. Werner put together an effective plan that was part strengthening and part table work. He's awesome and I highly recommend him.I have to say that the entire staff at the Hackensack location is awesome. Everyone is super friendly and attentive and really knows what they're doing. They all take a sports-based approach to PT which I really appreciate. I think this is the big reason why I can kick the ball again and stay active.The facility is clean and well-equipped. Tables are always wiped down and prepared for the next patient. There's a separate room where more of the dynamic therapy happens (in my case, a little 1v1 with Werner and sometimes Cosimo, another amazing PT). Overall, great results.
I had a great experience at Excel, the staff were very friendly, caring and professional. I recommend E.P.T. to whomever is in need of P.T.
I had an injury prior coming to excel. The staff who helped out to get me back to where I am now played a major role so I can go back to playing how I use to play. Thanks to Werner and Cosimos for helping me out
Cosmo excellent therapist. He'll work me hard but not overdue it. I feel I've progressed at a steady pace and feel comfortable that I'll be able to walk without a cane. That day will be great and all because of Cosmo.
Excellent Physical Therapy from.Excel PTHackensack, across from B& W Bakery! I need PT for my knees, arm & shoulder by Brian Stinton & staff! Recommending to all who need PT❤️! Joyce Menegus
Throughout a whole year of PT for multiple injuries Cosimo would listen and adjust therapy as i went along. Everyone is treated as a family this is the place to go hands down.
They fix my knee and Cosmo is the best!!!!!!!
Excel says it all. Cosmo Carrieri was so knowledge as to my injury and adjusted my therapy each time to improve my healing process. The personal attention by him and every staff member was absolutely amazing. Clean center with so many machines and equipment for use.I highly recommend this therapy location to anyone, hands down.
Dedicated staff, excellent therapy
I have gone to Excel several times over the years. I can always count on great treatment from them. My most current route of PT has been with Cosimo Carrieri. I can't say enough nice things about him. He goes that extra step in creating a treatment plan for you. He watches your progress and adjusts your treatment each visit if necessary. He is compassionate, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. He was able to provide a suggestion for a second opinion as well as different options for treatment. The assistants that work with him are just as nice. I left with a home program to follow to continue my treatment and told to check in if I needed anything. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Excel for treatment.
Excel has made life good again! Stronger knees, no pain! Cosmo is wonderful. This is a good place.
Love coming to excel! Everyone is so friendly especially Talia!! Feels like family. It's very clean!!
I have been having a truly liberating experience. I can do movements I haven't been able to do in years.My Therapist, Cosimo has been so clinically and mentally effective at getting me back on the road I should be on with my overall physical and mental health.I nicknamed him "The Comeback King". He manages to get his clients back to where they need to be.All of the Staff at Hackensack is attentive and knowledgeable in their craft.A Great place to come Heal, rejuvenate and keep motivated on getting better.Excel Hackensack ROCKS!!!
This place is amazing! Came in a couple of months after my CDF surgery. Neck and upper back were really stiff and working at a desk all day wasn’t helping. After seeing Dr. Cosimo Carrieri for a couple of sessions I regained so much mobility with my neck. Staff is very kind and they always make sure you’re okay. Can’t recommend this location enough.
Excel in Hackensack, under Brian Stinton's leadership, is an outstanding provider of PT. The staff is highly competent and committed to helping clients improve and overcome their challenges. Highly recommended.
I can’t say enough great things about the physical therapists and physical therapist aides I’ve been working with to get my hamstring better. Brian, Cosimo and Bo - the physical therapists I’ve worked with - are amazing at what they do.My exercises are carefully chosen based on each session I have at Excel. Brian, Cosimo, and Bo give me their complete focus when I’m doing my rehab exercises. My hamstring has gotten better thanks to their attention and focus.Primo and Talia - the physical therapy aides are amazing to work with. They offer clear directions for each exercise. They help keep my session moving along.I highly recommend Excel! I’m so happy I was referred here.
If you need PT the place to go is Excel Physical Therapy. I had issues with my feet but learned so much more: awareness of how I was walking and the correct way to walk. I continue the exercises I was given once my PT was over. Excellent therapists, atmosphere is very positive.
What a great facility! Everyone is very friendly and helpful at all times. My physical therapist was Cosimo and he helped me get back into my prime in no time! Highly recommend!
I am very glad I chose Excel for my therapy needs. All the therapists on staff in your Hackensack office are very well trained in the therapy needs of each individual patient. If my therapist is tied up with another patient, any of the other staff members can look at my chart and instantly figure out what needs to be done next. That is one of the reasons I gave you 5 stars, also your clinic is kept very clean and up to date. I had my right knee totally replaced and looking back on when I started with Cesario and up to the point I'm at now, he made my recovery day and night better. I returned to work after 2 months and could not have done it without Cesario's dedication and help. Again, thank you for having a well trained staff whose dedication to patient recovery shows in all they do. Bravo !!
You could not put yourself in better hands. They are caring and provide excellent care. Brian Stinton is at the top of his field
I have been diagnosed with an impingement right shoulder and it really hurts so I was referred to Excel Physical Therapy and It’s been an owesome experience doing my theraphy in this facility with the help of PT Carrieri Cosimo, he’s really so good in this field so professional and making sure that your concern is being taking care off so highly recommendable if you want your injury to go back to normal!
I worked with Cosimo for tendonitis in my left shoulder and he was great! He was very thorough and really listened to me and he made sure I was always comfortable and not in pain. Very good and knowledgeablephysical therapist and a nice person too! Everyone at Excel in Hackensack is very friendly and helpful and the place is always very clean and organized. I will definitely see Cosimo again if I ever need physical therapy.
Excel was absolutely top notch. Extremely helpful and thorough, Cosimo Carrieri was incredible. His knowledge and skills helped me return to normal much sooner than I had anticipated. If you are in need of PT I would definitely recommend him.
I’ve been to other PT places and they just don’t match up to my experience at Excel. They treat you like an athlete that has to get back in the game. I’ll be back if need be. Thank you Brian for all your work, I know you went above and beyond and I really appreciate you. Saiham was always there to assist me wonderful job. Cosmo helped me when Brian was out he gave me some really good advice thank you. Sean is just a great guy, he made schedulingfor me pain free.
This is not my first encounter with physical therapy.Brian Stinton is by far the most knowledgeable,compassionate and dedicated physical therapist that I have ever encountered.His diligence and perseverance in making sure that I succeeded has left me with the impression of a person truly dedicated to his profession.
Cosimo had me back up and running after knee surgery in no time
Cosimo Carrieri - Great therapist. Understood who I wanted to be, and worked carefully to get me there on a workable timeframe. Kudos to Cosimo & Excel Hackensack.
