Our Mission is Your Recovery! In 1990, Jeff Ostrowski, PT and Joe Ruhl, PT the founders of Excel, had a simple goal – help people return to life’s activities. Their passion worked. Patients and physicians recognized the value of the Excel approach. The practice grew. Jeff’s and Joe’s vision of a customer service oriented, hands-on approach to care attracted like-minded physical therapists (PT) to join the team. In Excel clinics today, you will find dedicated PTs providing progressive, hands-on therapy in a friendly environment – just like Jeff and Joe did back in 1990.
