I cannot say enough about Ivy rehab and the wonderful work that they do! From the moment I walked in I felt at home and listened to. Steve is an amazing physical therapist. He took time listening to all of my symptoms. I didn't feel rushed at all, then he came up with a plan to help me. What I found amazing was that during several times during the therapy session, he would stop and have me walk around to check in and see how I was doing before he continued. In the time that I've been going here, my symptoms have improved so much. Some times I think that Steve is a magician because the pain I come in with is drastically reduced by the time I leave. His whole staff is kind and attentive. I have to give a shout out to Caroline, one of the other therapists that took care of me when Steve was away. She was so helpful! I highly recommend Ivy rehab!

Everyone at Ivy Rehab is professional, caring and kind. They listen to each patient and are quick to address new issues as they arise. They are a fantastic team of professionals, and they have my full confidence that I’ll be (almost) as good as new in a reasonable amount of time.

I was very well cared for at Ivy Rehab in River Vale. My physical therapist Caroline was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and responsive, always quick to predict and adjust exercises if I had any discomfort. I feel so much better than when I started a few months ago.The entire staff is very welcoming and they really work as a team to make sure patients are constantly attended to and that time is allocated efficiently. In addition, everything was so clean!! Staff are constantly washing their hands and sanitizing equipment.This was a very positive experience! Thank you!

After five months of healing from serious lower spine surgery, I finally started to receive PT services specializing in my post surgical lower lumbar spine. I have been to may PT centers over the past 20 years for a variety of aliments and Ivy Rehab in River Vale NJ is hands down the BEST and most effective center of services I have ever experienced. Clinical Director Steven Coppolecchia and his staff are second to none - very professional, friendly, warm and knowledgeable in the treatments they provide. They zero in on the ailment and they have a unique and variety of exercises and hands on treatment that they use to make the patient feel better and to heal. Definitely not one of your factory rehab centers with the same old exercises that they give everyone regardless of their situation. Ivy Rehab's services are geared towards each individual's issue. Thank you all and Bravo!

I would recommend Ivy Rehab as I have gotten much better after my treatment here. I hurt myself snowboarding and live in River Vale. This practice was close in proximity, easy to schedule around my work and provided excellent care. Hopefully, I won't have to return but would if I sustain another injury!

Excellent team at Ivy Rehab River Vale, NJ. DPT Mina is my primary therapist, others always pitch in quickly and competently when she is busy with another patient. They're all more than pleasant, they're a likeable group, working in a clean, spacious, airy and new space. PT isn't much fun, and they make it as easy as possible to do the work. I can't imagine a better place to go for what I need.

After 4 months of daily rotator cuff/shoulder pain, I contacted Ivy Rehab for help. Mina conducted a free consultation on my shoulder and the very next day, my shoulder had already felt better with more range of motion for the 1st time in months. We had several PT sessions to reduce the shoulder impingement and to build strength in the area. I can finally swing a golf club again and overhead weightlifting. I highly recommend Ivy and thank you Mina for the help!

As soon as you walk through the door at IVY REHAB in River Vale, you are greeted by a warm & friendly staff, especially Angela! After meeting with my therapist, Steve, I knew I was in the right place. He is very knowledgeable, well skilled, and took a deep interest in my post surgery hip issues. He is also very hands on with manual therapy, while being friendly and extremely patient. I never feel rushed, as I have with other therapists ..Steve explained my treatment plan with both clarity and empathy, and continued to do so with each visit.. SO ..if you are in need of PT of any kind, I suggest you call IVY REHAB for an appointment !!!
20:26 26 Dec 20
Such a positive experience. The staff members were friendly, caring and most importantly, knowledgeable. Thank you all for helping me make a great recovery.

When I woke up with excruciating back pain, my choices were either the hospital or my PT! It really was no choice at all. Steve at Ivy Rehab is who I trust to get me up and moving again pain free. His knowledge and skill are impressive but what really makes Steve the best therapist I’ve ever seen is his empathy and willingness to go the extra mile for his patients. He will always make time, stay late, come early and give the individualized attention that makes his patients trust him and believe that they can recover. Thank you Ivy Rehab Rivervale and especially Steve for all you have done for me. My appreciation is beyond words but I hope these have made a small difference for you!
01:37 09 Dec 20
I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am for having been treated at Ivy rehabilitation therapy. Steve was absolutely brilliant. He’s got the patience of a saint and he really knows his stuff! A big shout out to his wonderful staff for always doing a great job. I could barely walk down the block before, and now I’m walking over ten thousand steps a day!!!Many thanks, Margaret P.

A true blessing. For some going to PT is chore, for me going to PT is one of the best things thats happen to me since i was diagnosed with RA.With such a discouraging ailment, Steve never gave up hope on me and keeps pushing to make me get stronger. Unlike many other PT offices, Steve is extremely hands on with manual therapy and I must say that has helped me more than just strength exercises! Happy to say, I am a lot stronger physically and mentally!!From the moment you walk in and see Angie to being helped by Mellisa and Allissa you feel welcomed! True family environment where space is respected and equipment is cleaned after every use! Thank you to Steve and River Vale Family! Highly recommended!!!

I've worked with PTs for most of my career and I could tell you that Steve is the best of the best. He not only fixed my knee but makes you want to go to therapy! He's professional, knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Front desk is great, she worked around my busy schedule and was welcoming. The place is big, clean and organized with all the equipment you could want. I highly recommend Steve @ Ivy in Rivervale. -Victoria, R.N.

I started my therapy in Dec 2018 after my shoulder surgery ,it was in Ivy rehab Hoboken .In June 2019 ,the Doctor wanted me to do another surgery for a frozen shoulder but when I met Steve in Hoboken he assured me that he can fixe my problem without surgery, so I trusted him and after few months things started to get better. I went with him to the new location in Riverdale where I am doing great because this guy cares about me.Meeting him was the best thing that happened to me in my effort of recovery .He want to see me doing good ,he explain to me the logic behind every exercise we do.I really feel that he is with me and he feels my pain. Since my surgery I dealt with 5 or 6 therapist and so far he is the best .Without him I was going for a second surger,and no matter what I say , I can't thank him enough for being with me and helping me a lot.

Steve was my physical therapist when he worked in the Midland Park location. My trauma surgeon recommended him for my very challenging case, which has required me to be in physical therapy for quite a long time. When he opened up his new clinic in River Vale, it was a bit of a drive for me but I knew it was worth it because he truly is the best. Steve created a therapy plan for me that keeps me strong and allows me to feel my best. He always answers my questions(which I always have a million of) in a very professional and knowledgeable manner. He really knows his stuff, I wouldn't trust anyone else with my recovery!

Speaking as a medical professional (doctorate) with top tier training, I give Steve (PT and Rivervale Director) at least ten stars on a five-star scale (that's no typo). His level of knowledge is outstanding and is sensitively shared in the style of a great educator. His level of thoughtfulness (both as a caring individual and as an intelligent designer for optimal medical outcome) is one I've rarely encountered. Steve practices with a professionalism and ethic that would be respected by any colleague in the finest medical teaching institutions.Speaking as his patient, I am deeply grateful for what his work has done to not only improve my physical function and relieve my pain, but to restore my hope in soon again "being normal." Once you meet and work with Steve, I believe that you will clearly understand and share my recognition of him as a profoundly compassionate individual and extremely well-skilled physical therapist; a pairing like that can only result in my most enthusiastic recommendation!Steve, I wish you every success in your new practice: it is very well deserved!

Steven, the director, was my physical therapist at Ivy Rehab for a post ACL surgery. Steven is incredibly patient-focused, attentive and really hands on. He always listened to my concerns and helped formulate a therapy plan that he continued to tweak as I progressed in my recovery. The employees at Ivy are also really attentive and professional. Post surgical ACL recovery is very long so it is vital that someone have the best PT possible. I wholeheartedly recommend STEVEN and team at Ivy.
