I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Wayne Hatami, I am the owner of NY SPINE PHYSICAL THERAPY, PC. I am a native New Yorker, however, my physical therapy training was completed in Holland.
Since graduating in 1997, I have brought and maintained a "hands on" approach while treating each patient. Your individual needs, health, and well being is first priority at NY Spine Physical Therapy.
Presently, NY Spine operates out of four locations, Patchogue, Great Neck, Mineola, and Whitestone. Each facility is equipped with state of the art rehabilitation equipment. Our newest addition is NY SPINE'S BALANCE CENTER located adjacent to our Whitestone location, offering the ALTER G anti-gravity treadmill.
Our offices participate in most insurances plans including, but not limited to, most Major Medical, Medicare, No-Fault and Workers Compensation. I look forward to meeting with you!
My name is Christina Rando, I am currently a Doctor of Physical Therapy, working as the Director of our Great Neck facility. I graduated from New York Institute of Technology with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Life Science in 2009, and continued on for my Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy graduating in 2011. During my studies, I have found a love for manual therapy and exercise, giving me a strong background in various manual techniques and orthopedics. Throughout my studies, I also completed research on the effects on muscular strength and muscle fiber utilization with exercise. I also am a certified Personal Trainer, further leading me to specialize in exercise.
Currently, I work as a Physical Therapist at Franklin Hospital, seeing patients postoperative with various orthopedic surgeries, as well as general acute rehabilitation. I have always enjoyed helping people, encouraging them for a better life style change, and healing them. My goal is to provide the best experience for my patients. I have great joy in putting a smile on my patients face.
