Queens Office

Owner / Physical Therapist

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!

Doctor of Physical Therapy

My name is Marios Haritos and I have worked for NY Spine over the past ten years. I was first introduced to physical therapy upon receiving treatment here when I was a high school student in Holy Cross High School. I then graduated from New York Institute of Technology, receiving my Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy in 2013. Presently I direct our recently opened Balance and Fall Prevention Center located next door to our Queens facility in Whitestone, NY.

I developed an interest in balance and fall prevention rehabilitation following my participation in a research study performed during my graduate level studies looking at the effect of exercising on Parkinson's disease, specifically cycling. Integrating foundational concepts with recently developed anti-gravity treadmill training, I am able to provide an opportunity to individuals who suffer from a loss of balance to take their next step and defy gravity to improve their gait imbalances.

I also work select hours in our Whitestone location where I apply my passion for manual therapy and exercise-oriented rehabilitation in orthopedics and neuromuscular diagnoses. I have enjoyed my transition over the years as a patient, volunteer, and aid to a Doctor of Physical Therapy while working along side Wayne Hatami and the staff of NY Spine. I am fluent in the Greek language where I am able to extend our services to the Greek population. My goal is to provide a unique experience to my patients where exercise is prescribed to return balance for an overall active and healthy lifestyle.
