"During the fall of 2017 I was diagnosed with a concussion. My symptoms included headaches, neck pain, light sensitivity, extreme noise sensitivity as well as overall lethargy. After a month of my symptoms making little to no improvement my doctor prescribed physical therapy. Initially I was skeptical if physical therapy for a concussion would do much because I had never heard of this type of therapy for concussion treatment. To my surprise only a few weeks in, my doctor and I noticed a significant improvement in my symptoms. Fast forward to December, due to a medical procedure I was forced to halt my physical therapy sessions for around 2 weeks, and they symptoms came back. The PT was really helping me, I needed to get back ASAP to be able to continue my healing. Since then I have been getting better, and now we are at the point of treating a residual neck injury. In addition to the impeccable therapy I have been provided with that has helped my symptoms reduce greatly. The PT and staff at Americare oftentimes is the highlight of my day. The staff at Americare is polite, friendly, funny, and awesome. So glad I began at Americare. "

"I began my Americare experience at Mountainside with Susan Rele in 2010 for therapy for my right arm. Susan and her staff helped me overcome this difficulty. Susan is a consummate professional.I retired at the end of 2010 and in January 2011, I began using the gym regularly through the fall of 2017. I injured my left knee meniscus and began physical therapy with Americare last fall. I recently had surgery on the left knee and am continuing p/t at Mountainside. The entire staff here is fantastic. Dimitri treats me most of the time. He has helped me greatly. He is knowledgeable and professional as are Barbara, Marianne and other therapists I've come to know over the years. Dan is a great assistant and Diana does a great job with scheduling and billing/insurance matters along with Nancy at their main office. Apologies if I left anyone's name off this list.I was told that if I did this review, I would have a chance to perform p/t on Dimitri as pay back. (just kidding!!)Norman Heckel."

"I’ve been going to physical therapists for one thing or another pretty much my whole adult life. I’m an active but aging athlete so I need help at times to keep up my competitive edge. I have a lot of experience with different physical therapy facilities and physical therapists, but I have just recently moved into this area so I wanted to find something closer to my new home. I am so incredibly blessed to have found AmeriCare and Barbara Reuven!Not only is Barbara an incredibly experienced and gifted golfer, but also an excellent physical therapist. She has helped me to get back on my feet after a recent injury and is such a pleasure to work with! She keeps me motivated, focused, and safe -- all the while gently proding me to reach my full potential. Videos are also sent via an email that you can use on your home computer to remember all the steps for your homework exercises.The facility is clean and organized, and all the therapists are very attentive while you are doing your exercises. Overall, I am delighted to have found this place and would recommend Barbara to anyone who is in need of a Golfer or a physical therapist. "

"Stroke recovery is a serious business, When one finds themselves in the position of choosing a therapeutic way station along the rehabilitation road; care and caution are the operative words. I have the responsibility for that choice for my Brother who suffered a severe CVA.. My Brother is a serious fighter and has come a long way toward reaching his fullest potential. At the outset of this journey he was not given a tinker's chance of regaining the use of his left arm or left leg. But a warrior's spirit alone can not bring about the improvements he has made. Professional guidance, compassion and creativity are required. We have found all of these elements alive and well at Americare. Initially, Susan came to the house and helped get him on the right road. As he has gained strength and balance he now visits the office as an outpatient. All of the staff share Susan's commitment and obvious love of this occupation. They practice with acute observational skills, clinical knowledge and creative approaches to complex neurological problems. Stroke takes everything in a nano second and gives it back as a glacier melts. But with each drop of success the hunger for more increases. We intend to stay with Americare until my Brother's glass is full. If you are dealing with stroke, I suggest that you investigate Americare and decide for yourself"

Diana, at the front desk, was most helpful and accommodating in helping schedule appointments, address insurance issues, etc. Everyone had such a positive and friendly manner in dealing with patients and with each other.

"Terrific, outstanding and a very friendly facility. For over a month- twice a week, Dr. Monica Saenz was patiently working to ease the pain on my right shoulder. Her professional skills and experience in pain management made the big difference in achieving a very fast recovery. It was my first therapy and I was so glad that I went to the right place. A very friendly environment, young professionals and yet very knowledgeable in their crafts. A polite and a very accommodating front desk staff. It was a great experience for me and I am so grateful that I feel a lot better now. Wishing you all the best in your practice, Monica and I will miss your stories and your smiles. Continue the good work in helping people in pain. More power to all of you. A highly recommendable place for everyone."

"Susan and Monica were professionals in every sense of the word. They were so knowledgeable and hands on. I came there after surgery for a torn labrum and in a good deal of pain. They put my on a great plan to achieve amazing gains. My recovery was thorough yet speedy. In about 2 plus months I had little to no pain and full mobility. Whether it was cupping and stretching from Monica along with a great therapy plan for core and shoulder or dry needling and massage along with an extensive strengthening therapy plan for the shoulder from Susan. They were so receptive and explained what they were doing in a way I could easily understand. I highly recommend Americare in Garwood. They are top notch."

"First I would like to thank Dra. Susan Rele and all of her staff for the excellent care I received for the past few months. I've been to two other physical therapist (both of them in the city) prior to going to Americare and I can say that only AmericarePT was able to properly diagnose and treat my condition. They are really focused on your well being and their main goal is to treat you. They are very compassionate and they definitely know what they are doing. They are not like other physical therapy centers who will nickel and dime you (or your insurance company) without any improvement in your condition. I will recommend them in a heartbeat!"

"From start to finish my experience at Americare (Garwood) was outstanding. I visited the facility and was impressed with its cleanliness. The office staff was very welcoming and set me up with my first session the following day. I was introduced to my therapist Monica and right away I knew I found the right place. I explained that I had suffered awful back spasms while playing golf and for the first time in my life had quit in the middle of a round. Monica asked me to make a few movements and then started me on a series of exercises designed to strengthen my back muscles. I have not had a spasm since. I am very happy that I found Monica and would highly recommend her. Not only is she a great therapist but she also has a very nice way about her that makes you feel that she has a genuine interest in seeing you get better. The rest of the staff follow her lead. I give Monica and Americare the highest rating."

"Marianne was my physical therapist. She was recommended by my back surgeon at Summit Medical Group. I am very pleased that I was treated by her at the Garwood location. I challenged her skills because I went in for my back but tripped during a mini shore excursion and injured my hamstring. So she had to adjust my treatments to focus not only on my back but on the hamstring rupture. She and her assistant were always caring and watchful that I was doing the exercises correctly and not overdoing anything."

"The treatment I received from Barbara and Monica at AmeriCare Physical Therapy was excellent. I came to AmeriCare after having a microdiscectomy and hemi-laminectomy, which included some post surgical complications.

"Americare treated me from not being able to stand or walk very well due to extreme lower back pain beginning the end of April of this year, to being released just today 22 August a very happy and healed person. And the best part of the treatment was getting me back into my Yoga practice! Cannot say enough about the skills of both Barbara and Susan that have resulted in such a positive outcome. And the staff were always so supportive and understanding toward me from the beginning when I was very grumpy from pain to when I was feeling really good such as I felt today. I'll recommend Americare to everyone."

"AmeriCare is my favorite place for physical therapy!!! They showed me some great exercises for my ankles and calves, and after 4 sessions my pain was almost completely gone. Not only that, they sent me a text message about a week after I finished to see how my ankle was feeling, and I received it literally as I was sending them a text message to tell them how much better my ankle felt. They really do care. AmeriCARE"

Their evaluation was spot on and they were able to make me pain-free in less than recommended therapies.The atmosphere is very pleasant. In fact, whenever I arrived earlier than my appointment time, I was immediately attended to. The staff is also very friendly. They have all the right equipment to treat you.I would recommend going to them."

"AmeriCare Physical Therapy is wonderful. I went a few years ago for a torn rotator cuff. AmeriCare provided relief from pain and increased strength in my shoulder. In fact, it worked better than the cortisone shot.When my aunt, age 89, was struggling from weakness in her hands from age and stroke, I brought her here. AmeriCare also provided a balance test and added fall prevention therapy. Instead of just preventing more loss in movement, her mobility has INCREASED. Since she has begun working with Jordan, her strength and balance have improved. The staff is warm, caring, and encouraging. She feels wonderful and I think she has avoided the walker for a few more years. Thank you Jordan!"

"I had bad right hip pain that extended down my right leg. The therapists at AmeriCare correctly diagnosed my issue (turned out to be a lower back problem) and started me on a course of therapy and exercise to address my issue. Over a period of several weeks the pain began to lessen as I followed the advice of the therapist. Now I am totally pain free in the hip and leg with full range of motion. I am very pleased and grateful with my experience at AmeriCare.THANKS!"

I drive about 40 minutes twice a week to get there and it is well worth it. Before I came in I had back pain, now I am almost pain free within only 5 visits. Unlike other PT facilities at AmeriCare it is one on one and they know exactly where you left off last time you were there. I am extremely impressed with AmeriCare and I highly recommend them."

"I've had excellent care at AmeriCare! Everyone is extremely professional and friendly. The therapists' ability to pinpoint my exact pain sites is spot-on and they have worked closely with me to develop an action plan for treatment. I have struggled with hip, back and neck pain for years and have previously tried PT with little progress; while I am still in their active care, I do see progress for the 1st time in years."

"I came to Americare with severe back pain that was affecting every aspect of my life. After working with Marianne Luckenbach for 11 sessions my complaints are much better. I loved the personalized therapy I received at Americare - the facility is small and the staff are caring. Marianne did an initial assessment of my condition. She explained to me that we would progress each week and that she would continue to do the assessments on a regular basis. The progress report aspect was particularly helpful to me because in addition to pain reduction, it was very helpful to know that I was regaining mobility steadily. I feel like a completely different person and while I hope I do not have to go through physical therapy again, I would return to Americare in a heartbeat."
