Very satisfied with the care I received at Ivy rehab. My therapist, Reena, was excellent. The combination of the works sessions and the home exercises she prescribed were very effective in resolving my pain. Everyone at Ivy was friendly and the environment is a comfortable one. Highly recommended.

I went to Ivy Rehab in Highland Park because of ongoing hip pain. In just a few weeks of working with Reena, strengthening and stretching, my hip feels so much better. My legs are stronger, and I can walk farther and more easily. I can even go up and down stairs without pain! I really like the "feel" of the facility, too. Everyone (Reena, Abby, Alejandro, Cindy) is warm and friendly, scheduling was easy, and there is ample parking. I like that it is not on a busy street, so I don't feel like I am on display while we are working.
18:15 15 Dec 22
The facility is very clean, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

I am very happy to find this wonderful place! Ivy Physical Therapy in Highland Park has a professional and kind team. I met with Reena Mathew who began by accessing my issue and got me set up with a plan.She has brought me a great deal of relief and increased range of motion. I highly recommend Reena for anyone who needs a skilled and caring Physical Therapist. Her encouragement and exacting exercises have helped me very much.
18:55 28 Nov 22
Both Reena and Abby are wonderful to work with as is the office staff. Concerned about their patients, answer all questions and encouraging to the patient.

Ivy Rehab is a gem that I didn’t know existed until I needed it! My surgeon specifically recommended it and said that the PTs know what they are doing. The facility is clean, people are nice, and PTs are professional. Abby is the best PT and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Cindy is not only kind and friendly, but also makes scheduling and paying through insurance easy and quick.
02:27 21 Aug 22
I am so pleased my doctor referred me to this Ivy physical therapy center where I am receiving excellent and effective therapy with Abbey, who is professional and knowledgeable.

Ivy Rehab in Highland Park is a friendly, easy to schedule local site. My physical therapist Melissa was an expert at her work, very knowledgeable and adept at locating the problem. She designed a therapy program that greatly relieved my back pain in just 3 weeks, and gave me a home program to maintain my success. I would definitely recommend Ivy Rehab and Melissa!

My experience at IVY Rehab was very positive. IVY’s therapists wereknowledgeable and effective. I felt I made excellent progress in myrehab and would recommend IVY to anyone who needs a rehab program.
14:40 21 Oct 20
If you want to have a great therapy session with very knowledgeable physical therapists, then Ivy is your best choice. When I first started going for my therapy for my shoulder, I didn't know what to expect. I quickly realized that my doctor steered me to the right place.Everyone is friendly, helpful and really care about everyone who is there. It is actually an enjoyable time. Everyone is doing their exercises while engaging in conversation and I might add, very good music playing in the background. I am actually going to miss going to therapy...how often do you hear that!Well, as an update since this previous review, I must add that I did have to have more therapy for my back, my left knee and just recently for a neck problem. And, you guessed it, with Ivy and my same therapist, Meghan. My review is still very positive, even through the current Covid-19 pandemic. Every precaution is being taken to protect every patient. I am even more satisfied with them! I encourage anyone who needs physical therapy and lives close to their location, call them for an appointment...you won't be disappointed!
00:15 21 Oct 20

A great rehab center with profesional, knowledgeable and sociable physical therapists
23:20 09 May 19
Excellent care, pay attention to details. From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed as you are greeted by reception, Meghan and Alex along with other staff Members. Meghan is a very knowledgeable with pain management care. I saw them post car accident.
20:38 03 May 19
This is my second experience at Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy. I chose it because my friend Kalee Gould got great results and spoke very highly of Megan and Alex. I have gone to other facilities on the north shore to rehab a broken ankle in the past. I hated going. Not so here. First of all, it is small. The entire staff is nice. You get very individual attention. The service is personable. They know who you are when you walk in. They are very knowledgeable. They explain your injury and your prognosis in layman terms that a non-medical person can understand. It is extremely reassuring.They do so for the length of your treatment. Most importantly they do this with humor that sets you at ease and professional so you know they know exactly what your body needs to get better. They almost make physical therapy enjoyable.
12:16 01 May 19
Megan and Alex are terrific. They are top professionals who relate well to their clients. Megan has been my physical therapist. She has great empathy, a warm personality, excellent skills, and cares about her clients. She is careful to avoid pain while gently getting her clients to do the necessary rehab work. I look forward to my PT sessions there.
16:52 18 Apr 19
Alex and his staff are very competent professionals, using the latest information and techniques to heal injuries. I highly recommend
11:23 25 Mar 19
it is a highly evolved physical therapy facility because of the inspiration of Alex and his team
02:25 25 Mar 19
Alex is an outstanding physical therapist. He has helped my son progress through his injury. After a few sessions, he already feels so much better. Ivy Rehab is an amazing place and I would recommend it to anybody.
14:09 20 Mar 19
Great place for P T ! Individual attention and client centered approach. Meghan is the best! Two thumbs up!!
10:29 13 Mar 19
Dr.Alex Bendersky was recommended to me by a professor at Northwestern Medical School, when I needed PT help following an injury. After 7 focused sessions with Dr. Alex, I now walk briskly and go up and down stairs well. I have found him knowledgeable, realistic, caring and a good listener. I would recommend him highly.

19:30 25 Dec 18
I want to thank Alex, Megan and all the staff of IVY rehab for helping me another time. They did it again. It was one of my blessings to find Alex 4years ago before he started working in IVY rehab. Since then he and later Megan have been helping me to fight my pains and aches, to restore functions my body kind of lost. They hear what you say and respond to your complaints very generously sharing their knowledge and they do know where these aches and pains come from. Alex and Megan don't make life easy for you in the best meaning of it. And the assistants are very nice and ready to help. I'm really grateful to Alex and the team for helping me being active again and wish them all a very happy holiday season.

I had never gone to physical therapy for an injury before, and I'm very glad I ended up going to Ivy Rehab. Unlike most PT experiences I had heard about, I truly enjoyed going for the month I was treated.Alex and Megan are both a joy to work with. Super knowledgeable, friendly, and create an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone at the facility. It was easy to tell they both care about their patients and want to get you back to the full health.

Alex and the rest of the Ivy team are excellent therapists and assistants and my Rotator Cuff surgery rehab is going better than my Dr. projected. I’ve had PT in the past and always dreaded going- I look forward to my twice weekly sessions at Ivy.

Botanic Gardens, the Ravinia Festival and Lake Michigan aside, surely one of the best perks about living on Chicago’s north shore is Ivy Rehab, situated in the heart of downtown Highland Park. Should you ever be seeking top-notch physical therapy, Ivy is an unparalleled choice. I speak from personal experience, having had occasion to work extensively with both of the other highly reputed physical therapy agencies in our nearby communities. I always enjoy the experience of being there, and leave feeling nourished, both physically and emotionally.The venue is inviting, warm and friendly. Personal attention is lavished on every client. There are no more than 2 therapists at work there, both with doctorate degrees. Trained therapy-assistants are fully committed to providing excellent service in guiding the independent exercise of clients after they have worked, hands-on, with their therapist. Discussions are lively, the atmosphere always pleasant.The agency is run by Alex Bendersky, a man of extraordinary talent in his skills as a physical therapist, in his encyclopedic knowledge of the body and how it functions, in his generosity in sharing his extensive knowledge in educating his clients, and in the precision of his diagnostic skills, which he exhibits on-going throughout the treatment process in accommodating the client’s on-going progress and ever-changing needs. The exercises he provides are uniquely varied and interesting, changing from visit to visit to match the client’s ever-changing progress, stimulating both brain and body. Alex’s presence pervades the milieu, as he manages to keep his eagle eye on clients working with assistants, in his commitment to optimizing that individual’s experience and improving their outcomes. His genuine caring can be felt palpably.Alex is an extraordinary listener. He loves learning, stays on top of recent research in the field, and is eager to share his comprehensive knowledge. In fact, it’s not unusual for him to send clients home with one interesting article or another to read. Beyond knowledge, he has wisdom, which he generously offers his clients, along with motivational encouragement and reassurance, beyond the scope of the work at hand. It is no wonder that he was Ivy’s choice as therapist of the year by Ivy Rehab.Abigail Natenshon

Due to extensive Spinal Fusions & 2 Hip replacements I have been in Physical Therapy on & Off for the last 6 years. A few years ago I was told I may never walk again, so my future was unclear.I have been at a few facilities with good PTs, but I have never had the Professional Treatment like I get from Doctor's Alex & Megan. They have taken me from barely being able to stand, to walking up stairs and alongside other people. Thank you!
15:18 29 Mar 18
If you are looking for a physical therapist, look no further. If you are involved in sports or have sports-related injuries definitely stop looking. I have been to many—some quite good, some less so. Alex Bendersky is by far the best. Similarly, the other physical therapists and professionals at Ivy Rehab PT are also the best. The expertise, professionalism, motivation and courteous service you will get is unsurpassed. Oh, you will get one other thing...you will get well!
23:36 13 Mar 18
I have only had positive experiences with Alex. He is not only fully committed to helping patients alleviate pain and rehab injuries, but he is always learning the most up to date methods and explaining the science behind his process. Alex and his team at Ivy Rehab display empathy, kindness and professionalism. If you're looking for personal, quality care, in a supportive environment, I highly recommended Ivy Rehab!
19:53 23 Feb 18
Ivy Rehab and Physical Therapy is outstanding! Both Alex and Megan are incredibly knowledgeable, dedicated, thorough and abundantly kind. They take a difficult or uncomfortable situation and bring a very positive, hopeful perspective. They treat all their clients with respect and total focus on their wellbeing. I highly recommend Ivy to anyone needing rehab or physical therapy.

Megan and Alex are excellent physical therapists! The facility is bright, clean and modern. the staff members are friendly. Highly recommend!
17:04 14 Apr 17
IVY REHAB IS THE BEST! I don't have enough positive things to say about it. Alex and his staff are some of the most intelligent and genuine people I have in my life. I was in physical therapy the entirety of this past summer, Thanksgiving break, and winter break, and I looked forward to it every day. Everyone at Ivy Rehab cared so deeply about my well-being...I would not be nearly as strong or as motivated as I am today without their constant support and encouragement. Whether it was listening to Pandora, or answering trivia questions, I never went a day without laughing. The hard work never seemed that hard because of everyone's positivity.
