IvyRehab and Rich Fruitman are simply the best! Rich has put me back together after multiple different injuries and surgeries. His hand-on approach and positive attitude combine for outstanding physical therapy that deliver real results!
Had a very good experience, everyone was very courteous and helpful and seemed to genuinely care for all their patients they all took very good care of me
Rich is passionate about really helping his patients and clearly cares about getting them better
So thankful that I found Ivy Rehab! Rich and his team are so kind and went above and beyond to ensure that I left feeling pain free, and truly made every session different and personalized! Would highly recommend! I loved how flexible they were with hours and accommodating my schedule.
Rich, is absolutely fantastic at treating chronic pain and helping people heal to get back to living their best lives!!
I had my surgery at Trinity Hospital and chose Ivyrehab in Ypsilanti for my Physical Therapy. Best decision I could have made. Rich Fruitman is my therapist. He provided a wonderful experience for me. He informed me about the brain’s role in feeling pain management. He provided a friendly and welcoming environment. Gretta and other patients made my experience healing and fun. I highly recommend Ivy rehab.
This place is the best. Awesome place they gave me therapy exercises to do at home after regular therapy. It is the best doing so good. Wonderful staff and help. Love them
I don't leave PT in pain!
Great PT, No pain and Great People
I am a student of physical therapy and did my first clinical rotation at this location. The atmosphere here is very nice and the physical therapist knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend coming here for any physical therapy needs.
Since going to this PT location I have loved it. Rich is amazing! He always makes everyone feel welcomes so that it's not disconnected and introduces everyone to one another. He's used a diaphragmatic breathing technique (new to me) to help re adust and losses my muscles bc everything was very tight spasms and I've gone to various PTs since 2018 this is 1st time I haven't had constant chronic pain and I've only been going for about a month. Just schedule you will be sooo happy you did! Greta the receptionist is also great to work with! 👏👏👏🎊🎊🎊
Richard is probably one of the best therapists that I've ever had he takes his time With the patient he gives good quality work
This place is beyond AMAZING!!!! The care i receive exceeds what i have experienced elsewhere. Rich and Greta treat you like you are old friends. They are so very welcoming!!!! They are both encouraging, understanding and compassionate. They both go above and beyond! Rich is a fantastic physical therapist! He works with the patient on finding a solution while challenging the patient to reach his/her full benefit. He pushes the patient in a kind and encouraging way!
Rich is a miracle worker. Wonderful therapist, great facility. Greta is pretty fantastic as well. Highly recommended for all your physical therapy needs.
Pain is in the brain, but it’s all real. That’s a truth I had to come to terms with in order to fully heal. It’s been a couple months since I completed therapy. I wanted to allow some time to pass before leaving a formal review so I could inform you of the progress I have made. I thought I was going to be stuck with lower back pain the rest of my life. Dr. Richard’s helped me put an end to that though by guiding me towards a better understanding of things. I’m hitting the gym today and it just so happens to be pull day. I can deadlift over 200 pounds now safely. I’m no longer in pain anymore and I feel great these days. I consistently hit the gym at least 5 days a week and eat healthier than I ever have before. Truthfully, it all started with Ivy Rehab. I’d vouch for you guys any day!
I attain Ypsilanti Ivy PT. I've only been here 2 weeks. My rotator cuff is rotating. Thanks Rich it's remarkable after 5 months of therapy at other clinics. I'm finally feeling better with my arm
Rich and I are striving to provide the best patient care possible to Ypsilanti community and the surrounding areas :)
Rich takes very good care of me
Rich is a great therapist. Takes care of all your concerns and spends plenty of time with you
Rich and Greta were a pleasure to work with. They’re incredibly friendly, kind, accommodating, and well-versed!
I’ve known Rich for a while and I can’t think of anyone better in the industry than him. His extensive knowledge and experience in manual skills are unmatched. He helped me for my lower back pain recovery and I’m so happy I found him. He is very patient and delivers quick and effective results in minimal visits compared to others who just want you to see you for weeks. I would recommend him for any Physical Therapy needs you have
Rich was great to work with! I worked with him both pre and post foot surgery and he helped me build my strength back up in a matter of a few months. I would recommend him to anyone for any physical therapy needs, he really cares about his patients.
Works diligently to provide great care and customer service. Greta is great up front.
Rich is the best therapist ever!! He listens, works with you and makes sure that you are not in excessive pain. I've worked with him after 3 replacement surgeries with excellent results for all.
Great care from everyone.
This is an environment that is totally geared toward personal and rehabilitation positive experience. First PT that I actually look forward to.
I just 'graduated' from my PT sessions at the Whittaker Rd (Ypsi) Ivy location and couldn't be happier with the results. After a total knee replacement, my PT Rich was so patient and encouraging; pushing where needed and giving me grace when I just couldn't. I was treated with respect and felt like family.From walking in the door and being greeted by smiling Greta, to Rich making sure the exercises were all good for me when leaving, each session was great!I will certainly recommend this place to anyone needing physical therapy and plan to return when my next knee is replaced.Thank you and great job friends!
If you’re looking for a wonderful therapist that actually cares about you and your healing Rich is your guy! I’ve never met a physical therapist that is so knowledgeable and helpful. Seriously, no exaggeration. He is awesome. And I’m very thankful I found him if I could give him more than five stars, I absolutely would. Also, his office staff is awesome. Greta is extremely kind.
Staff was Great!
2052 Whittaker RdYpsilanti, MI 48197I am so happy to be getting my physical therapy at ivyrehab in the Kroger shopping plaza on Whittaker rd. Ypsilanti TWP. This is the fourth tear Ive experienced on my left rotator cuff. I am in a position medically that severely limits a repair as with embolisms in my lungs and a recent stent put in, I am off the table for any type of elective surgery. In the past i had therapy a few times from different injuries. Rich has been in charge and giving me the therapy, and I must say he has got me doing way more and feeling like I am making progress in range of motion and pain relief. I would highly recomend ivyrehab for all of your therapy needs. Watching the care and compassion given in a way that respects and expects results within the physical limitations surrounding your needs.Thanks Rich,Butch
My experience at Ivyrehab was great. Richard was my therapist. He has a lot experience and very attentive. He helped me overcome my physical ailments. If I need any further treatment, I will definitely seek Richard’s help.
I've been going to ivy rehab for about a year and a half. I love it there. Rich has been so helpful. I feel myself getting better, I've been to other therapy places and never knew how helpful therapy could be until I saw Rich at Ivy. I recommend this place to everyone.
I love this place. The receptionist greets you when you come in with a nice and pleasant smile and the Physical Therapist knows what he is doing. Very informative and caring
What a great experience! The minute you walk through the door you are treated with respect, compassion and professionalism. Rich Fruitman is my therapist and I will recommend him to anyone who needs physical therapy.
Richard is a kind person , very smart and has helped me alot . Bonita at the front desk is very pleasant and good at her job.
I love Rich he helps me to push myself to be better every time I come in. Bonita is a wonderful person to meet and was very pleasant and helpful when I needed to understand what to to sign in.
I had a great experience, the staff was helpful, kind and friendly. Most of all, Rich, the therapist, took time to listen to me, to carefully figure out what hurt and what didn’t; the to start on a course of action to fix it.His treatments, recommended exercises and most of all, advice, were great! I learned about about central nervous system sensitization and I could affect my own pain.After only eight weeks, I feel great and am back to doing all the things I used to do — and more!Thank you so much!
I had been having chronic pain!!! I’d been doing PT for about 3 months. My results to that point hadn’t been moving towards being able to return to work. I was extremely discouraged!Then I had a meeting with Rich!!Well, things have changed rapidly to say the least! He shared so much information with me about chronic pain and how different factors have a huge effect on its effects. Due to his insights along with his experience, I now have a return to work date!!! I went from being extremely depressed and hopeless to “PAIN FREE” and optimistic about my healing not to mention the future! I highly recommend Rich @ the Ypsilanti Ivy Rehabilitation Center!!!! (and the change only took a few visits, just incredible)My husband is even impressed to the point that he has agreed to try PT with Rich! And he has NEVER had any inclination of ever trying physical therapy before. This is HUGE!
A friendly, professional, clean environment. The physical therapist explain everything to me and why it was needed. The office made sure I left with information and resources to continue my y treatment at home. I would refer them to anyone.
Rich, my physical therapist, was right on point locating my injury and giving me the right exercises to strengthen my hip. Wonderful place.
