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.

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.
15:36 20 Mar 23
Excel has made life good again! Stronger knees, no pain! Cosmo is wonderful. This is a good place.

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.

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.
22:36 05 Dec 22
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.

Excel Physical Therapy in Hackensack, NJ was absolutely the most legitimate and professional physical therapy experience for me. Over the course of twelve years, I have been to several physical therapy centers. The process was the same at all of them; I was hooked up to different devices, like the TENS machine and traction tables for timed sessions. Nothing ever helped with my condition, and being left alone on such contraptions felt like a waste of my time and money. After my cervical fusion surgery, my surgeon recommended Excel Physical Therapy to strengthen my neck muscles. To my great surprise, the physical therapists trained me to exercise and strengthen my neck and upper body muscles using flexible bands. I was never put on any machine; I was monitored and at all times and challenged each week with new techniques. I am grateful to Cosimo an Bo for their excellent service and to the whole team who worked with me. I highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy for anyone who is serious about making a complete recovery or improving their mobility to avoid a potential surgery.
22:18 23 Sep 22
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 !!

14:22 14 Apr 22
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.

I did three months of PT at Excel for sciatica and arthritis in my knee. Heather, my physical therapist, was great! And the aids were wonderful, too. As a team, they kept me moving for the duration of each session, which really paid off. Can't say enough good. I feel like a new person.
