Big thank you to Matt Aitken and the great people at Ivy for working with me on a nagging lower leg injury. Matt gave me the tools to overcome, tolerate and trust my injury while continuing to enjoy the activities I love each day. Thanks for the encouragement and persistence, they are great people and fantastic with their patients.
I was thrilled with my experience. My therapist, Matthew Aitken, was thorough, professional, and compassionate. He gave a variety of exercises and techniques as my condition evolved. He even did extra research between sessions to address my specific needs. Finally, Matt was kind & fun to work with. I highly recommend Matt and the Ivy Rehab center.P.J. from West Chester
Jessica Wade is fantastic. She provided a very detailed and attentive assessment while answering my 101 questions. Laser-focused, professional, top-notch therapy.
PT with Marissa at Ivy in East Goshen was fantastic! She provided the best exercises to improve my athletic performance. The hard work in PT with her paid off for an incredibly successful lacrosse season. Thank you!
It’s all about the people. Friendly kind and respectful. Received great care during my recovery from surgery. Thank you Marissa and Matt
I began therapy at Ivy in September (back) and then again in February (neck). Jonathan worked with me on both issues.He worked to identify the cause of the pain and explained what he was doing and how it would to help alleviate the pain.I was educated with information and when I was discharged, given exercises to do at home, to prevent any problems.I would highly recommend the therapists at Ivy. All of them know their stuff to create a great treatment plan.
Fantastic staff whom relate well to all patients!
I really enjoy working with Katie and appreciate the effort she is making to make my therapy successful. She is very good at figuring out exactly what is needed. Staff is very pleasant and helpful and the atmosphere is relaxing. Highly recommended
The treatment is personalized, one patient - one therapist. One complete hour, just for you. So far, very qualified therapist.
Marissa is great, very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns! IVY has a very welcoming environment.
I wanted a therapist who would push me to my limits.He did!!!
My therapist is a very caring person who wants you to improve each session. I am enjoying my time at Evy Rehab.
May 2022I was experiencing numerous issues with head wooziness, concentration, balance, and ear ringing in March 2022, and was referred to Ivy for physical therapy. Katie spent considerable effort getting to know my exact set of conditions to work out a proper treatment plan. She was excellent at getting to the bottom of vestibular dysfunction and working to put me on a path to an improved quality of life. I had marked improvement in just a few weeks and a couple months later I was a different person. I still have ear ringing on and off, and on rare occasions I get a touch of vestibular issues, but through all the techniques I was taught it's manageable on most days. I highly recommend Ivy as Katie and the other physical therapists there are outstanding, they love what they do, and they really go the distance to get you well.
I highly recommend Excel. All of the stuff is super friendly. Katie is very knowledgeable and caring. Provides individual attention and coaching. I couldn’t be more happy.
Jonathon Kritz in my opinion is an outstanding PT.He treats his patients with the utmost respect and compassion. He will go above and beyond when needed. He has changed my outlook, at a critical point in my life, to be much more aware of the benefits of healthy exercise and stretching.He knows the human anatomy very well-and uses this knowledge to the patient's benefit.
Therapists are friendly, knowledgeable, and take the time to explain what each exercise will do to help you get stronger
My total experience with Sarah was great. She always asessed my pain and then tailored my therapy to work on exercises that made my body and balance stronger. Reports we sent to my surgeon twice and then a final report sent my last day. I learned what I could do at home in between sessions. And I also want to thank Katie who covered for Sarah for a few sessions. Katie was on top of my recovery and also provided guided therapy to help my recovery. Both are very well versed in many areas of physical therapy. They both have positive attitudes and always provided positive encouragement on my recovery. I would definitely recommend Excel Physical Therapy located on Paoli Pike.
My physical therapist, Jonathan, is awesome. He’s very caring & professional. I always leave Excel feeling much better then when I arrived.
Went to Exel in West Chester. I had back problems that need physical therapy. Marissa was my PT. On a one to ten I give the firm a 10!!! Highly recommend that facility. Lou G
Katie and the Excel/IvyRehab team have been an amazing resource to guide my physical rehabilitation from conditions I had accepted as status quo for far too long.A special shout-out to Shamus, who has a very promising future ahead of him. He is already exceptional.And Justin makes sure the office doesn’t miss a beat.This is the place to go when your body says things aren’t quite right. Listen to your body. And me.
After experiencing a brain stem stroke 5 years ago that left me with constant dizziness and lightheadedness I have been confined to a wheelchair because I am too much of a fall risk to use a walker. My previous experiences with physical therapy produced minimal results because none of my previous physical therapists felt I was capable of enough improvement to get me on my feet again. They gave me very limited PT and said that was all my brain injury would allow.I decided to give PT one last attempt at getting some independence back and after a lot of consideration I decided it would be at Excel in West Chester. When I met Sarah Pachini I was immediately welcomed by her friendliness and impressed with her knowledge of my condition, Wallenberg Syndrome. None of my previous therapists were familiar with Wallenberg Syndrome and as a result their therapy was identical as it would be for someone with a concussion and not a brain stem stroke. Sarah explained some of the balance training that would help me and gave me confidence that someone was finally going to give me the proper balance training I had not received before and her positivity that our work would produce results gave me the confidence I spent 5 years looking for.Sarah’s balance training was amazingly effective because she knew exactly the type of balance exercises that would address the parts of my brain that needed to relearn how to balance my body again. I was able to progress from standing and holding onto a bar to freestanding for steadily increasing amounts of time. Then it was standing on a cushion at the bar first with my hands and then without. Sarah’s belief that she could improve my balance was becoming a reality, it was the beginning of doing things no one else thought I was capable of doing but Sarah believed in me.We then introduced a rollator I brought with me into therapy, it was my goal to be able to walk independently with the rollator and be less dependent on the wheelchair. Due to the balance, strengthening and endurance training I was able to begin walking with the rollator and I was soon doing laps around the facility. The next big step was walking outside with the rollator, first short walks that increased to all the way around the shopping center. It was an unbelievable feeling to be walking again! I truly believe that the progress I have made would not have happened if I had not worked with Sarah. I have begun walking around my block at home and as we continue to working together I have no doubt it won’t be long until I am taking the rollator to restaurants, doctor’s appointments, visiting friends and all of my activities with the rollator and leaving the wheelchair at home.
Great care and responsible attitude about their patients recovery. Also, a friendly, pleasant atmosphere.
I highly recommend Excel for PT, Therapist at East Goshen are amazing. Friendly caring and patient.
Staff is excellent! Facility is welcoming and very clean…best PT experience I have ever had…and I’ve had quite a few!! Marissa Garguilo was my therapist and she was fabulous!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Sarah Pichini at Excel was wonderful, kind, and professional in helping me rehab from a concussion and whiplash. She explained the reasoning behind every exercise or procedure during treatment, kept me up to date with where I was in terms of progress, and created an environment for sessions that was welcoming. Can't thank her and excel enough for helping me recover from a nightmare(ish) situation. Highly recommend.
I love Excel Physical Therapy at the West Chester location. All of the therapists are super knowledgable and friendly. I want to highly recommend my therapist Marissa to anyone coming off a recent injury, the plan that she put together for me helped me get back to my normal life much faster than my doctor expected through the right amount of challenge and rest. Thank you Marissa!!
I had to get therapy for TMD Jonathan is very knowledgeable he knows what he is doing I started to feel better on the first day itself patient care is outstanding.
I would highly recommend excel . I went for 3 months after having a broke my shoulder. Lauren was very professional and very knowledgeable. She pushed you in a challenging way which I liked. Never giving up however very compassionate for your pain level! The entire staff was always welcoming !
I began therapy in February 2022.. I had balance difficulties and lack of strength in my arms and legs I was successfully discharged today thanks to my excellent therapist, Marissa Gargulio! She was so incredibly helpful and thoughtful in creating a PT to fit my needs. The atmosphere in the room was upbeat and everyone was pleasant and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Excel of West Chester, and especially Marissa,r to anyone,
The best physical therapy I have received. The staff is amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. I look forward to each and every session that I have.
My therapist- Sarah Pichini was the consummate professional helping me work through the consequences of an injury that I had skiing this past winter.She took the time to listen and was thorough in her treatment approach.I highly recommend her for those in need of physical therapy.
Excellent care with attention to detail to retrain my leg and hip muscles to work properly.
I had a great experience with Excel Physical Therapy! Everyone is very nice, welcoming and supportive. Lauren (my physical therapist) is exceptional and so knowledgeable; always willing to take the time to explain things to me and adjust exercises to target exactly what I needed. They were very flexible in scheduling and willing to work around my ever-changing work schedule.
Had the pleasure of working with Sarah Pichini who knew exactly what I needed to get me back in the gym performing even better than before my injury. Highly recommend trusting Sarah with your PT journey!
This is a great place for physical therapy. The therapists are knowledgeable and caring. They pay attention to your needs and work toward measurable results. It is never overly busy. An all around good experience.
I just got done my 15 minute consultation with Johnathan Kritz in West Chester. I cant say enough great things about him and the experience I had here. He took the time to explain the pain and the recovery strategies for me. I would HIGHLY recommend this place and for PT overall. It exceeded all expectations. Thank you team!
Awesome treatment. I am a repeat “offender”. Sarah P. has an outstanding ability to hone in on the issue and fix the problem. I highly recommend. Whatever physical issue they can help!
Professional and accommodating staff. I highly recommend!
Everyone who works there is great. They took good care of both me and my daughter.
I worked with Jonathan for about 6 months recouping from an achilles repair. He was awesome. Not only did he get me back to a level where I was before the surgery, but he actually got to know me along the way. There are few injuries as difficult as coming back from an achilles tear. I am a highly competitive athlete who needed to get back to my sports regime both for leisure and for work and he made it happen. He pushed me when I needed pushing, and laid off when I needed more time. To this day if I have a question or want to run something by him (related or not to the achilles) he is happy to talk with me. I also have a Kinesiology degree and PT background so I am more than familiar with that general landscape and working with people in this field. Jonathan was excellent. I would recommend him over and over again.
I i’m very happy to share that I had a wonderful experience with Lauren at Excel physical therapy. The process was seamless, the staff were very professional, and Lauren was exceptional. I very much appreciated the time she spent teaching me about my injury and my role in getting better and maintaining the healthy condition. Thank you all!
Great environment, not over crowded. The PT’s are very good. Lauren Smith did a great job and was always prepared with something new, more challenging to try. I have used other PT facilities but I found Excel to truly fit my needs.
