I have been a frequent flyer of physical therapy due to numerous ailments, so I know a good clinic when I see one. Excel is one such example. Jonathan has been a kind, supportive PT for me through one of my most pressing injuries after a string of very difficult events in my life, and he has been vital in helping me feel physically and mentally well again. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who is in need of care.
Highly recommend to rehabilitate after injury. Jonathan and JT here are real expert, always friendly, and super helpful on all aspect. Really appreciate all their effort and help in the past few months!
Jonathan helped get me back to working out after a hamstring injury. I would recommend Jonathan and the entire team at Excel to anyone. They are the best!
I can't express enough gratitude for the outstanding care I received at Excell in Jersey City, especially under the expert guidance of Jonathan. Thanks to his knowledge, friendly demeanor, and remarkable competence, I made a 100% recovery from sport injury. Jonathan's personalized approach and commitment to my well-being were truly exceptional, he made sure I was able to go back training as soon as I finish all my sessions. I wholeheartedly recommend Excell to anyone seeking top-notch physical therapy services. They are simply outstanding! Thank you very much for everything!!!
I tore my ACL skiing end of March 2023. There is no way I would be back on the ski slopes less than 1 year later without the talented and caring physical therapists at Excel, in particular Ilija Bubalo! Ilija pushed me to rebuild my leg strength and full knee mobility safelyand with rapid progression. His deep knowledge, caring, encouragement, reassurance and confidence in my progress made a huge difference in achieving my goal to be able to ski again this season. Ilija, I am so very grateful to you! I have also had the pleasure of working with several other therapists at Excel, all of whom I have found to be caring, excellent physical therapistswho really know their stuff!
My first visit this morning - Was excited to get help with my shoulder. Could not even work on my shoulder, sign-in ipad kept crashing, name was mis-spelled on insurance form. Staff tried to help which was a plus, but they don’t know their systemUpdate: A few hours later, I spoke to the director and he set up time with me and was very patient and competent. Will be returning.
Shoutout to Ilija and Jonathan for their dedicated care and guidance in my recovery from an Achilles heel repair surgery. They have been helping me regain strength and mobility, and have made this journey seamless. I appreciate how personable they both are and their investment in my progress!
Highly recommend for the quick results with my shoulder injury. Jonathan not only helped me heal quick but taught me new exercises in the gym to safely keep doing what I love.
Jonathan helped get me back to playing sports and working out after I tore my shoulder. I never thought I’d feel this great ever again. I would recommend Jonathan and the team at Excel to anyone. They are the best!!!
Dr. Jon Zaid is head and shoulders above any other PT I've worked with. As someone who works in the health and wellness space I refer my clients and friends to work with Jon whenever possible for a multitude of reasons. I think Jon and Excel have the top tier PT offices in the area. Couldn't be happier with the results and the professionalism whenever I'm on site.
Cannot recommend this place enough. Highly qualified staff, super down to earhh personalities and do their job with the upmost care and support. Tore my Achilles tendon and came here for 5 months. They had me recover ahead of schedule! Special shout out to Jonathan and especially Ilija for really bringing me back to 100%!
I am extremely grateful for Dr. Jonathan Zaid and the entire team at Excel Physical Therapy for helping treat my prolonged pain. Jonathan did a wonderful job diagnosing my problem, explaining treatment, and guiding me through stretches and exercises to strengthen the impacted area. Everyone at the clinic is so friendly and helpful, I genuinely looked forward to my visits every week. Will return in a heartbeat if I ever need physical therapy again!
My wife has been experiencing pain in her right foot because of a partial tear in her PTT. For several months, she couldn't walk and was told by a doctor that she would need surgery. Fortunately, Jonathan Zaid and his team have done a fantastic job helping my wife get back on her feet. He is very professional and a good listener, always considering our goals and needs. The facility is also clean and well-maintained. Highly recommended!
Great care by Jonathan, I am feeling much better than when I started and my pain has diminished.
3 months ago, i was depressed and unable to walk! They lifted my spirits and strength and got my back on my feet! Great practice in jersey city!!
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jonathan Zaid and Excel Physical Therapy. I’ve dealt with numerous injuries during my fitness journey and every time Jonathan has answered the call. From minor issues like inflammation in the knee to bigger problems like a torn labrum, he will always have a protocol to help. I was able to rehab my torn labrum back to full health when I was told by multiple doctors I would need surgery if I ever wanted full function again. I have Jonathan and Excel to thank for that!
I spent over a year rehabbing with Excel after a tough shoulder surgery. Jonathan and his team understood my rehab goals well and continued to work my plan to get me there. Im happy to say I’m back to full workouts and pain free post surgery.
Ilija is nothing short of a master PT! His in-depth knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics -- along with his forward-thinking treatment plans -- helped me to not just re-build strength after a surgery but to forge a stronger, more resilient me. He took the time to thoroughly evaluate my condition and truly understand my goals, then created a custom program tailored to my specific needs. Another really important note is that Ilija personally lifts weights, which means he was able to provide a true strength training component that added a powerful extra dimension to my treatment program!
Very clean. Very knowledgeable and patient. It’s a great place
Amazing staff, did wonders to help me through my injury! Highly recommended!
Oron was incredibly helpful! Not only did he help me prepare for the NYC marathon (and complete it) but he also helped me with the painful recovery due to a foot injury. The group here is incredibly professional, intelligent, and friendly! Definitely recommend!
Exceedingly helpful and friendly. They are great about working me in even when I don’t have an appointment because of my tight work schedule which I have never experienced elsewhere. And my shoulder issue is dramatically improved thanks to Amanda and team!
I receive Personalized attention from my physical therapist to ensure that I am progressing nicely . I am confident that shoulder surgery will not be necessary . The facility is great. It’s clean with high ceilings, plenty of natural light and good equipment .
