"Very professional and still friendly atmosphere. As an older patient they will work with you and candidly explain your individual challenges and how you can improve by following their exercise program and suggestions for performing daily activities with the correct posture and weight bearing methods. Exercises were given with patience and encouragement and scheduled according to your availability. The facility is top-notch with plenty of convenient parking. And Excel Physical Therapy definitely has the friendliest and most helpful staff members we have ever encountered in any office setting!"

"I was extremely impressed with my physical therapy from start to finish. Everyone works as a team at Excel and that is something that I have not experienced at other places. They all worked to help me reach my goals and were always pleasant and caring. I can not say enough about how much I appreciated everything that helped me to return to my normal activities. Thank you all for your part in my successful recovery . I would highly recommend Excel to anyone that should need physical therapy."

My pain is almost completely gone and I am able to walk and do the required tasks at work. The treatment , attention and attitude from this facility was outstanding. I would highly recommend excel to anyone who needs results. "

"I went to Excel Physical Therapy for headache and neck pain. Dr. Vikas Johri has the distinction of being in the "less than 1%" of physical therapists nationwide trained in orthopaedic manual PT. I am so impressed with his knowledge, talent, techniques, and explanations. Nathan, who spent most of the time with me and my exercise routine was extremely patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable in every aspect of my program. The entire staff at Excel PT is so friendly and encouraging. I highly recommend Excel - especially to those with neck issues. How lucky we are here in Saginaw to have a specialist like Vikas in our own backyard!"

"I chose Excell for recovery from Covid Long, which started October 4th 2021. I had been off work since then. Pain, weakness and fatigue were all debilitating. All staff are quality, knowledgeable, caring, attentive, friendly. I highly recommend this clinic for any of your rehab needs. I truly didn't think I would be pain free or able to return to work. April 4th I'm finally ready to return. Both accomplished due these amazing Therapists. Tell them Helen Sent you ;-)"

"I absolutely loved the quality, comprehensive, and exceptional care I received from the entire team at Excel Physical Therapy. From my first phone call to my last appointment I was treated with care and compassion and a tailored therapy plan for my condition. An old shoulder injury flared up and I was first seen with a thorough exam and then a specialized treatment course for my problem. I was worked hard and did my home therapy and I went to 100% feeling better in 8 weeks. I still have a few months more until I will be “perfect”, but I am committed because they cared so much!! The team takes pride in their instruction and everyone in the practice has the same goal….the patient needs to get better no matter what. I achieved the result I was hoping for. Perfect location, equipment and caring professionals. I give you 10 Gold Stars and an Olympic Gold Medal for compassion and excellence. Thank you! "

"I would highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy. I went to Excel as recommended by my primary care Doctor for right arm pain and lack of range of motion in the arm. I've been to physical therapy for the same problem before, but did not get the results I got here. Purnima did manual physical therapy on my rotator cuff and challenged me with the exercises needed. Even after having a setback with another problem that made working with the arm difficult, they figured out what to do to keep me on track. After a few weeks, I went from a pain level of about 8-10 daily to a 0-2, and my range of motion went from 110 degrees to 180, which is normal. I am so happy to be able to use my arm pretty much normally again. All the staff there were helpful, friendly and courteous on every visit."

"I cannot say enough good things about Excel Physical Therapy! I came in for knee pain from running that had plagued me for a very long time, I wasn’t even sure that it was something that could be fixed. On my very first visit Vikas determined what was causing my issues and he was 100% correct. Both Vikas and Stephanie worked with me for several weeks as my PT progressed. They were both so kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating to my schedule. After just a few weeks I began noticing a major difference in my running and I can now run as long as I like completely pain free. I am still mind blown that after all those years of pain they got me back on track in such a short amount of time and that I am no longer experiencing any pain! I never dreamed that would be possible. I would absolutely recommend Excel to anyone! The whole staff is fantastic and they make it so easy to schedule appointments that work for you. On top of providing amazing care, the office is extremely clean and they go above and beyond to keep everything sanitized constantly. I cannot thank them enough for the improvements they’ve helped me make! "

"Thank you Excel PT for all your help with my back pain. Everyone at the front desk was so friendly and helpful with my schedule. Vikas, PT was very knowledgeable, patient and thorough at explaining my therapy plan. Stephanie, PTA is amazing and awesome to work with. She demonstrates exercises and makes sure you are doing them correctly. I will recommend Excel to all my family, friends and coworkers."

"I finished my PT back before Christmas I've been to other therapists for the same thing for years and it never really worked It would feel better for a little bit but not for long It's been almost 3 months and almost pain free. The little bit it still hurts hardly bothers me. Dr Johri is awesome and knew exactly what to do for my neck He is very commpisant and somehow has eyes in the back of his head to let you know that you're doing the exercise wrong or counting too fast Stephanie was also great and fun to work with Thanks again to both of you I would recommend Excel on Shattuck to anyone that needs PT"

"I am very pleased with the therapy I have received at Excel Physical Therapy and Rehab. The staff are all knowledgeable, kind, and have concern for their patients. I am under the care of Dr. Johri and Stephanie and I could not be happier with the treatment they are giving me. They go above and beyond for all their patients. I am experiencing good results for my hip and leg problems. I love having the quality of life back again. If highly recommend this clinic for all who need physical therapy. "

"I was referred to excel physical therapy about 4-5 yrs. ago by MHNI of ann arbor mi.and completed all of my therapy. Just recently I was having migraines with intense neck pain every day.I had an appt.with MHNI again and was given the chance to go to another physical therapist, but I wanted to go back to excel physical therapy. Vikas shows you how to do the therapy and gives a photo of each exercise to be completed. I am now completely pain free from migraines and neck pain. I also loved working with stephanie,she is the best. I would have no problem referring any one to excel physical therapy. "

"I was referred to Excel because persistent neck and shoulder pain that was worsening and interfered with getting a complete night's sleep. After an evaluation I was prescribed a comprehensive course of treatment that largely resolved the shoulder issue. The therapy focused on the precise ligament in the should that was causing the pain. I continue the program at home and fully expect the rotator cuff to completely heal. Last week I was able to kayak on Grand Traverse Bay without ill effects. Great job Vikas and Stephanie!"

"I absolutely loved my experience at Excel. The moment you walk in you feel welcomed and cared for. Each day, (especially the tough ones) the staff does their part to help encourage you and remind you of the end result you’ll have that you so badly want. I came in from shoulder surgery and left feeling like my normal self, pain free, with my full range of motion back! It was hard but so worth it, and i couldn’t be more grateful for the amazing staff that helped me! I would recommend to anyone in need of a great place for physical therapy! Also, do your homework, it helps and pays off! "

"I went into Excel with an inflamed disc in my lower back in mid-June from an injury in March. I had recovered a bit on my own, but had a horrible setback and needed professional help. I went to Excel because I was referred from a friend, and had heard great things about Vikas and his staff. It took about 2 months and I can say I am nearly back to my old self. Vikas and his team take great care in pushing you to heal, but you never feel overwhelmed as long as you do what they say. Each week I'd feel myself getting better regardless if I had a day or night that seemed like a setback. I'm much more aware of good body mechanics and exercises that can help with these types of injuries, and will not take them lightly anymore. I'd recommend Excel to anyone that needs help when it comes to healing from an injury!"
Aug 13, 2020
"I’ve used the services from Excel twice now with great success both times. First for a shoulder injury and second for therapy after hip replacement. Vikas knows how the body works and he knows how to repair and strengthen it. I highly recommend them for any physical therapy needs. "

"My 13 year old son came to Excel for PT after his ACL surgery on his knee. Before he left he was a month ahead of schedule and doing great. Vikas and his staff are the best. As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with smiles and friendly faces. We are very happy with the care he received and will miss everyone. "

"The staff at Excel Physical Therapy was beyond awesome. From the moment I stepped in the office, I was greeted by warmth and was helped tremendously through my registration process. Meeting Dr. Johri was a God send. His expert diagnosis of what was leading to my excruciating pain, coupled with the exceptional exercise regime, helped me get back to my everyday normal activities. Thank you to Dr. Johri, Stephanie, and Morgan for your unmatched dedication to making people lives better in your service. If you ever find yourself out of sorts due to surgeries, falls or ect...I highly recommend Dr. Johri and his team at Excel Physical Therapy."
Feb 27, 2020
"I have been to other physical therapy facilities in Saginaw but I have never been to one that was exceptional! The staff are highly trained professionals & if you follow through with the exercises, you will get better. I had a full knee replacement & the therapy was very hard but it certainly paid off! The staff are extremely knowledgeable & really want you to succeed. The office staff make you feel like family! I am so happy that I chose Excel & if I ever need physical therapy again, I will definitely return!"
Feb 22, 2020
"The care that I received at Excel was most excellent. My rehab started out with easier, yet comprehensive exercises, and progressed to more intense workouts. Within four weeks I noted great improvement and after five weeks none of my usual pain symptoms were gone. I took the doctor's and staff's recommendations to heart and will follow them even though my rehab with Excel has been completed. I strongly recommend them as your choice for physical rehab if, and whenever you need it. PS DO THE HOMEWORK!"

"At Excel staff are all very friendly and helpful. I was in an auto accident and after 2 years I found out that I had a pinched nerve in my neck. I had physical therapy before and after the surgery they did not help me as much as I had hoped for. I had an appointment with my neurologist that I am seeing to see what else could be done to help with the headache’s and muscle pain that I have had since my accident. He said that he wanted me to go to physical therapy. This time I asked a friend whose husband had headaches and neck pain on where he went, she told me how Excel had helped him. Vikas talked with me on my first appointment and said that because the injury was old, he would do his best. My headaches and muscles issues are so much better after going to Excel. Vikas did recommend that I join a gym so that I can continue to do the same exercises that I was doing there with the weight machines. I went and got a gym membership that same day and have been going and working on being able to continue make progress. If you are in need of physical therapy I highly recommend going here."

"I would like to thank the entire staff at Excel Physical Therapy & Rehab for the excellent attention to my recovery. Vikas was wonderful about explaining what he was trying to accomplish, including demonstrating with his joint models exactly what was going on in my neck and shoulder. When I first began my rehab, I was having difficulty sleeping due to the pain. That isn't the case any longer. With the detailed instructions he gave me, I intend to continue my rehab at home. I will truly miss all the staff at Excel....Vikas, Stephanie, Joanna, and Bailey. Thank you each and every one of you for all your professional and kind support. I would highly recommend Excel to anyone who may require physical therapy in the future."

Vikas is an exceptional, professional therapist with a caring, kind personality whose main concern is to help his patients. I would recommend his care to anyone who requires physical therapy.

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.

- Gerald

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.

- Ching

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Excel Physical Therapy & Rehab, my back is in much better shape than it has been in recent years. Focused therapy, personal attention and comfortable surroundings made each session productive. And the welcoming and friendly staff and practitioners helped make each visit enjoyable. My doctor made the right decision in sending me to Excel for my therapy. Kudos and a big THANK YOU, Excel!

- Ann

I would highly recommend Vikas to anyone looking for an awesome place to begin therapy. He has helped me so much with my back, in terms of being pain-free and safe. He spent valuable one-on- one time teaching me the proper way of exercising, lifting, and carrying with my back that will last me a lifetime. I recommend Vikas to anyone that is having any orthopedic issues at all. I enjoyed my time working with him and am feeling ridiculously better and stronger after. The front desk staff was very helpful in scheduling and rescheduling, as well as very friendly.

- Brianna

I was happy that I had the same Physical Therapist every time. I had an enjoyable 4 weeks of recovery!

- Debra

My neck pain improved while coming here to PT as well as range of motion. I do feel stronger and plan to continue with the exercises at home. I really appreciate the friendliness of everyone here and always left with a smile. Thank you so much for everything.

- Carol

In 2 weeks I could feel and see improvements in range of motion. I would recommend Excel to friends and family. Thanks for all your help and support.

- Dennis

I would say Excel has helped me drastically, I would never have guessed that this PT would help so much. I would strongly recommend Excel to all, any, and many of people in physical need.

- Mitchell

Was very happy with everything- wouldn’t change a thing. If I ever need help again wouldn’t hesitate to make Excel my only choice. Everyone was so nice and helpful all around. Thank you ever so much for everything.

- Jan

I had gone to Vikas for a frozen shoulder, and then continued after I had shoulder surgery. I was very impressed with the one-on-one care and his great knowledge of physical medicine. He spent many painful hours working on my shoulder, trying to regain full range of motion, which thankfully we finally were able to achieve. I was very pleased with the results. Recently I was having knee pain, and worried that I had a torn meniscus. I was very happy with the results, and avoided another surgery. Vikas always worked around my work schedule, and everyone in the office is very friendly. I would highly recommend Excel Physical Therapy & Rehab.

- Sherry

My experience with Excel was very positive. Doctors and staff were friendly, answered my questions, were concerned about my complete recovery and did an excellent job on my shoulder.

- Rae

My physical therapy was made easier due to the sense of humor, knowledge, and explanation as to the ‘why’ of each exercise of the therapist.

- Jan

Thank you Vikas once again for helping me! You are the best PT there is!

- Sue

Didn’t think this would help after trying 2 other physical therapy offices with no results. This time it has helped. Treated all symptoms not just one area. I have recommended to some friends.

- Lisa

Vikas did an excellent job. His personal attention and home assignment helped me recover my knee replacement movement. His staff is very polite, cheerful, and helpful. This is the only place anybody should go for physical therapy.

- Dinesh

I would, and have, recommend Excel Physical Therapy & Rehab! Vikas pushes you to ‘excel’, to work hard, and thus improve. He is very personable, and the staff is very friendly. When I started therapy, I had back pain and trouble standing straight; and ended therapy virtually pain free and able to carry on with life. Thank you Vikas!

- Diann

This was my second experience with rehab on my shoulder. Had I gone to Excel the first time, I don’t think there would have been a second time. Highly recommend them, it’s worth every minute.

- Dean

Very happy with my treatment here. TMD and neck/shoulder weakness have been treated quickly and have made a difference in my quality of life. Thank you!

- Tressa

I thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted greatly from my time at Excel Physical Therapy. Everyone is very friendly and professional, and I highly recommend this facility for your PT needs!

- Brenda

Outstanding, I am almost pain free for the first time in years! Thank you!

- Daniel

Would highly recommend this to anyone needing physical therapy. Very personal and friendly atmosphere. After about a month of physical therapy I never felt better and could get back to normal activities. They were also very flexible and accommodating to my schedule. Loved them!

- Alexa

The staff at Excel PT & Rehab does an excellent job! Front office staff members are pleasant and very helpful with scheduling and support. Vikas is very knowledgeable about how body parts should work and his expertise is evident in his suggested therapy workout routines. Hard work pays off in better mobility and strength. I will highly recommend Excel to my friends and family.

- Suzanne

Office is very organized. Always worked around my schedule. Always on time and answered my questions if needed.

Staff was caring and as a patient my concerns were addressed quickly and handled professionally.
