      I will not recommend Dr. Ahmad to family and friends. I saw Dr. Ahmad after fracturing my shoulder. The fracture took 5 months to heal. I was still in pain, had limited range of motion and worked with a talented PT3x/week. Dr. Ahmad gave me cortisone injections and told me that in a year or two I would be fine. Shame on Dr. Ahmad for not listening to me. I had surgery 2 weeks ago to repair a hole in my rotator cuff in addition to smoothing the deformed bone and a few other things.

      Best sports med Doctor I've ever seen. Wonderful manner he's a godsend
      in New York, NY |
      Very courteous and efficient staff, from front of office to PA's Dr. Ahmad obviously takes care in hiring. Dr. Ahmad himself was exceptionally caring and attentive. I could tell the office was always busy but never felt rushed, always felt that he was up to date on my specific issues, where I was in my recovery etc. and he answered all my questions simply and directly.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ahmad's Care Philosophy

      I'm passionate about returning players to the sports they love and thoroughly enjoy my role as Head Team Physician for the New York Yankees, the New York City Football Club of Major League Soccer, and the Rockland Boulders. I played four years of Division 1 varsity soccer at Columbia University and have a real kinship with athletes.
