RehabXcel, in its present location, was formally known as the Physical Therapy Clinic of New Iberia, a practice owned and operated by the former Mr. Lindsey Dumond. From its inception in 1962, the practice has been owned and operated by physical therapists dedicated to the care, rehabilitation, and wellbeing of the people of New Iberia, and surroundings. Although the ownership of the clinic and its name may have changed over the years our commitment to serving our patients remains unchanged.
