Livingston, NJ, May 13, 2019 – Excel Orthopedic Physical Therapy (“EXCEL”), New Jersey’s premier provider of orthopedic physical therapy since 1990, last week opened an office at 555 S Livingston Avenue at the former site of historic Livingston retailer Sams Fine Men’s Clothing (“Sams”).

The Livingston office—EXCEL’s first in Essex County—features a spacious functional training and cardiovascular equipment area, as well as an enclosed turf space for sport-specific training. At 6,200-square feet on the main level, Livingston is the largest of the company’s fifteen offices located throughout Essex, Union, Bergen, and Hudson counties.

“We’re looking forward to joining the tightknit Livingston community and bringing EXCEL’s years of experience and attention to high quality care and patient satisfaction to Essex County,” says Gary Flink, EXCEL’s Chief Executive Officer. “What makes this particular clinic even more special is that we’re occupying a building with decades worth of rich New Jersey history.”


Maurice Cohen, co-owner of Sams Fine Men’s Clothing adds, “[My cousin and Sams co-owner] Jeffrey and I would like to welcome the Excel Physical Therapy team to their new home at 555 S Livingston Ave—the former location of Sams Fine Men’s Clothing. We feel that EXCEL’s entrance into Essex County will mesh with the fabric of the community. Sams always made you look good and now Excel PT will make you feel good.”

EXCEL Livingston is now accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment, please call 973-974-9292 or visit
