About Me

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.

Dr. Ahmad preformed two shoulder surgeries on me. As a fitness professional it was extremely important for me to be able to return to exercise and recover my strength as quickly as possible. Dr. Ahmad and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and accessible throughout my recovery. I was able to return to exercise after just a few months, and inside of a year I'm 100% and unrestricted in all exercise. I hope you never need surgery, but if you do, you can't make a better choice than Dr. Ahmad

Dr. Ahmad and his team helped to repair my son's elbow. I have had many experiences with sports injuries in Pennsylvania and I am very thankful to have found this wonderful surgeon. Very professional, considerate and caring is best to describe our experience.

Dr. Ahmad is one of the best doctors I have seen. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and empathetic. He goes out of his way to ensure that the patient is comfortable and understands the situation. I did not once feel that he wasn't in complete control and capable of helping me. On top of that, he is one of the kindest Doctors I have met. Dr. Ahmad is the second Dr I have seen for my shoulder issue and I am confident that he will be the last. I highly recommend him and his staff, w

Dr. Ahmad and his staff have been very professional and supportive throughout my recovery from ACL surgery. I am almost 5.5 months post-op and feel like I am progressing very well in hopes to getting back to playing soccer in the near future. Having gone through other surgeries in the past, my patient experience with Dr. Ahmad has exceeded my expectations.
