Kevin and his staff are very helpful and very friendly. Would recommend to anyone who needs physical therapy.
Excel Physical Therapy is conveniently located, with an excellent and helpful staff, from the central administrative offices to the local office. I found my therapist, Kevin, to be a careful and knowledgeable diagnostician, and a friendly and excellent therapist as well.
Kevin and staff were professional and supportive. I would definitely recommend them to friends!!
I highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy in West Caldwell, NJ. Kevin is a professional & attentive therapist. He is very knowledgeable, patient & kind. Treatment prescribed was just what I needed to get rid of pain I had been experiencing. Staff was friendly & helpful -I felt comfortable at my sessions. If I should ever need more therapy, I would definitely return to Excel in West Caldwell!
Excel offers the best possible service, relief, and support you could ever ask for. The staff is friendly, professional, and personable, the place is clean and pleasing, easy to get to and park, and they have convenient hours and availability. Best of all, the type of therapy offered is first class. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and thoughtful. He cares a great deal, makes all the right adjustments, constantly adapts the care he provides to your evolving needs, supports you with helpful exercises and makes sure you do them effectively. He takes the time with each patient, remembers and talks through your specific history and issues on a regular basis. And you never have to wait for your turn, it's never crowded - appointments flow seamlessly every time.
I highly recommend Dr. Kevin Picardo for anyone looking for a PT who listens closely, is super knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced.I sprained my ankle this past summer and Dr. Kevin really helped me get my strength and mobility back. He's perceptive and thorough, and knows just the right mix of therapeutic approaches that helped me heal.Also, I'm impressed with the cleanliness of his facility and appreciated the help and friendliness of his staff. Thanks again!
Fantastic place to seek physical therapy!Kevin is professional, experienced, and very knowledgeable. He's helped me work through significant lower back pain during my sessions. He's been very attentive and has helped guide me through the use of proper form during each exercise. Kevin has also provided me with an at-home exercise plan to supplement my weekly sessions. After a few weeks I've already seen positive health improvements.Additionally, as a newly opened Excel Therapy location, the West Caldwell office is clean/well maintained, with brand new equipment. They adhere to strict Covid protocols with temperature checks and disinfect all of their equipment.Overall great PT experience.EDIT: After a few months of sessions I am back to full activity with no negative physical affects. Thanks again!
Excellent service very professional staff is great definitely recommend if you’re in need of a good physical therapist.
So glad I started doing PT at Excel with Kevin and his Staff. I've had this nagging back pain for the past few years, and I am already starting to see an improvement with my body. He noticed my hip was not aligned properly and certain muscles were not functioning when they needed to be, right from the initial visit. Really appreciate his attention to detail!
I am so happy I started working with Kevin. I had back / leg pain for months. After working now for a few weeks with Kevin I feel such an improvement, I am nearly pain free. He is very professional, listens, cares and explains very well. The provided exercises help me getting back to where I was including working out again. Highly recommended!
I've had nothing but a positive one-on-one experience with Dr Kevin Picardo from Excel Physical Therapy in West Caldwell, NJ. He is a gentleman; knowledgeable and compassionate to the pain I came in with from my first session. I have had PT in the past; and i can honestly say that the 5 stars i gave him are definitely due him . My pain Dr advised me to go to a person who is "well-seasoned"'; as my case is not textbook, and Dr Kevin fits the bill. He started me off slowly and is continuing to take steps that have improved my condition. He's shown me what to do on my own at home in between my sessions, which is so important. I must admit i was worried about going indoors for therapy because of the Covid; but have found the facility to be clean and have seen every piece of equipment being cleaned after each use. I have totally been improving and i would highly recommend this facility for anyone who is in need of a top notch therapist.
Highly recommend! My physical therapy experience has exceeded my expectations. Dr. Kevin Picardo is extremely knowledgeable, professional and genuinely compassionate. I have been dealing with chronic back/leg pain for years. I am so happy with my progress and just wish I would have gone to see him sooner!
Excel in West Caldwell is a great place to get treatment at! The workers were very helpful and welcoming throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends in the future.
Wonderful experience with Dr. Kevin! I've been suffering from lower back pain for years without any long term relief. After a few sessions I started to notice a difference and now I'm able to start working out again without pain. Couldn't have done it without him! You can tell he truly cares and was very patient and compassionate. Highly recommend for anyone!
