"From the friendly and warm welcome to the efficient check-in process to the dedication of the physical therapists, I can't recommend Excel PT highly enough. My running injury improved thanks to the expert knowledge of Dr. Lunden and while I hope I don't have to return, if necessary, I know whom to call for quick and caring relief. Thank you Excel PT!" -- Bozeman PatientView more testimonials from Excel PT clients »
