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.
