  • Jan

    I am extremely pleased with my therapy and its outcome. I was encouraged and challenged daily that contributed to my final outcome. All of my questions were answered and thoroughly explained. The friendly atmosphere was also appreciated.

  • Sherry

    After trying 2 other PT facilities & not achieving any results for hip & back pain that would keep me awake at night, I was reluctant to try PT for a 3rd time. I'm glad I did at Excel PT.

  • Doris

    I am very pleased and satisfied with my therapy. Vikas is an exceptional therapist - kind, gentle, patient and determined to do his best. He taught me how and what to do at home - my goal after discharge is to continue to help myself.

  • Donzel

    I was very surprised by the gains made by physical therapy. Manual physical therapy provided an excellent alternative to surgery in treating my low back pain.

  • Gerald

    A big thank you to Vikas & Purnima Johri in my hours of need. Great job! Thanks also to Chance and Jessica in the office for all their help. Congratulations on your professional and friendly staff.

  • Ching

    Front office staff has been friendly, concerning, and caring since the day they notified me for PT. Physical therapist Vikas has been working very hard with me for all sessions. Worked with me on one-on-one basis.
