Hear what other Xcel patients have to say.
The physical therapy I received was excellent. I had never had physical therapy before and was very nervous. All staff knowledgable, personable, and they really listened to my complaints. I always left feeling better than when I came in. I would highly recommend Xcel. Any more physical therapy for me I know where I will…
I was given personalized, detailed physical therapy. The therapist took their time and did not rush any procedure. They explained every procedure before starting and made sure I was comfortable. I love this place and will continue coming until I recover.
I will recommend this place to EVERYONE! Ashley was amazing so positive and so helpful. Kevin thank you for the pokes that changed my life. Greg you have a great staff. Thank you.
Greg and the team are great! Professional, caring, and want to get you back on your feet. They won’t milk you for money like some places. If you need therapy pick Xcel!
I came here for a back injury. The staff was courteous and very professional. They provided excellent PT and encouraged several exercises at home to improve long term functioning and range of motion. Their fees were explained with no surprises. I fully recommend them without reservations.
I visited for vestibular therapy. The people were extremely helpful and easy to deal with. That reduced my anxiety/stress. They were professional and took the time to explain everything thoroughly. I felt very much at ease with them. I will use them again if the need arises.
Really impressed with the time they spent working on my problem. Did more than my family doctor and chiropractor combined. Diagnosed my knee problem, recommended at home exercises and it’s getting better. They’ve earned my trust.
