What we treat

I had a wonderful experience at Ivy Rehab in Villanova. Highly recommend! Lara was phenomenal to work with. Location was clean, well equipped. Everyone was professional, courteous. Nice calm atmosphere. Parking was easy too which is a bonus!
They are fabulous
Friendly and knowledgeable team. Great service and care. All PTs at this location also have specialities in addition to general PT care. Highly recommend!
Quality of instructor
Great staff
My PT experience at Excel/ivyrehab with Matt Johnson was exceptional. The facility was clean, organized, and practiced excellent protocol including a daily question on the board to stimulate conversation. Matt is an exceptional PT talent at his trade with seemingly limitless knowledge, aggressive yet doable PT plan, flexible scheduling, PT portal for my homework, and ultimately a very positive result ahead of normal recovery schedule. Thanks Matt!!
Expert customized physical therapy. Very helpful, professional, and friendly staff.
Heard of Excel through a friend after some frustrating attempts on two occasions trying to register and get an appointment at another well-known facility. Im very pleased with EVERYTHING: a welcoming environment, friendly, respectful and attentive staff. Ive seen noticeable improvement in my physical condition due to the efforts, experience. watchful eye and recommendations of my therapist. I am grateful for the continual progress made and would highly recommend Excel at Villanova for anyone - young, elderly and all inbeyween and consider myself fortunate to be under their care. Thsnk you to my fine PT and all the staff.
Alex is a great Therapist! He is very detailed oriented. He actively works with me which I very much appreciate.
Good people, prompt appts. Interactive approach to therapy. High marks in my book
Daughter has had hip issues for awhile. Was with Alex for 9 months prior to surgery and she is now back with him again post surgery.
I am a 75 year old man with metastatic stage 4 Thyroid cancer and suffering from sitting too long during this pandemic. This sitting has brought me to a place of problems with my hips and sciatica nerves. Excel team especially my therapist Matthew and my scheduler Sierra have brought me to a place of movement and freedom from pain in my hips legs and sciatica nerve. The team does not let me fool around with my therapy; they watch ,assist, and make sure I do my therapy correctly- the results are life changing for me. Freedom from pain and free to move out of my chair are more than I could have asked for from therapy. John L Radcliffe Jr.
Excel came recommended from my doctor and as a facility, the experience has been excellent. Well run front desk/scheduling, clean therapy area, well equipped. Perhaps most importantly has been the skill and effectiveness of the therapist with whom I have worked: Alex Schweitzer. He brings extraordinary skill and commitment to the process.
Excel Physical Therapy staffers are caring people who show real interest in your improvement every time they see you. Its hard to leave when they fix you up. Unfortunately I have had to use them for three different situations. When the next time comes I know I'll walk out fully fixed. They'll also give me good directions on exercises to do on my own. Thanks JCIII
The therapists really honed in on my problem with my shoulder and helped e improve my athletic performance
Everything about Excel is amazing & I am so grateful to have found the practice. The physical therapists are wonderful, and Val has been extremely patient, kind, and so knowledgeable. I would never go elsewhere!
Detailed personal care! A caring environment!
Excel Physical Therapy in Villanova does a wonderful job. You are treated like family. The staff is very experienced and are able to fix just about anything that ails us. A totally enjoyable experience. 5 stars in my book.
Outstanding ratio of physical therapists to patients. Excellent diagnostic skills and interpersonal rapport.
Competent, friendly and caring professional staff. Rehabbed at the Villanova offices there 10 years ago and find some of the PTs still there offering excellent service.
I came to Excel (Villanova) after a disappointing experience at another chain PT practice--disappointing because of lax covid precautions and an overreliance on PT assistants who simply said "do 10 of these" and walked away. At Excel, I had the good fortune to speak with Julie Blanchard (DPT) prior to coming in for my eval and first treatments so she had a clear sense of my particular case and needs. I greatly appreciate the intensive, hands-on treatment Julie and Excel provides.
Val is the best. She pushes you to help you reach your goals.
Extremely happy with the care, expertise and overall facility at Excel PT in Villanova.
I have been to Excel in Villanova about six times through the years. The facility is top notch, with convenient parking. The therapists are extremely knowledgeable. They also are very personable and professional, which helps with dealing with the pain of an injury. The receptionists are also to be commended. They are friendly and efficient. And if they are busy, the therapists jump right in to help.
So impressed with Excel and Amanda. Spot-on diagnosis. Amanda was wonderful with her exercises and answering all my questions-even when I was away! Highly recommend Excel and Amanda!
There are many things that make this a five star review. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff, the quality of care and the flexibility of appointments are just a few. I didn't think I would enjoy physical therapy, but Dr. Schweitzer and the rest of the team make it an enjoyable experience.
I received very effective treatment at Excel for my strained hip muscle. The staff is very professional but friendly and strives to return every client to excellent health. My experience was a most pleasant one.
The great staff is making my recovery go very well.
Capable and hands on. Friendly and pleasant atmosphere.
I’ve had knee issues for the last 2.5 years following a surgery. I did not do proper therapy immediately following the surgery and so it has been stiff ever since. After working with Alex for one session, I felt an immediate difference. I’m on week 3 of 10 weeks of therapy and we are making great progress. I have much more movement/
Love Val
