BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Excel Orthopedic Physical Therapy (“EXCEL”), Northern New Jersey’s premier provider of orthopedic physical therapy for nearly 30 years, last week opened an office at 410 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights, NJ. This spacious, open-concept physical therapy facility moved into the storefront next to Pet Supplies Plus, which longtime residents may recall has sat vacant for several years following prior tenant Drug Fair’s 2010 bankruptcy filing.

Joining Summit and Westfield, the Berkeley Heights office now marks EXCEL’s third location in Union County and the company’s fourteenth overall. "We're very excited to open an office in Berkeley Heights, which will give our Union County patients more accessibility and convenience," says Gary Flink, EXCEL’s Chief Executive Officer. "EXCEL is very community-oriented—we're not just here as a business, we're looking forward to contributing to this vibrant neighborhood."

Berkeley Heights lead physical therapist Christina Gioeli, PT, DPT adds, “We’ve received such a warm welcome from the Berkeley Heights community already, which I really appreciate. I invite anyone curious about the new facility to stop by, take a look, and learn more about us.”
