The HODS board is happy to WELCOME our new HODS partner, Dr. Waqar Muhammad, owner of Angel Touch Physical Therapy in Valley Stream, NY.

Waqar comes from a Physical Therapy family, since his mom is a licensed PT in the state of NY, and she is actually working with him. We wonder sometimes if he has to listen to mom’s advice and what happens when he does not…LOL

Waqar has extraordinary passion towards manual therapy and finding the real cause of trouble for the patients. This is what led him to have an interest in the area of diagnostics and to join HODS.

I realize that diagnostics belong in the future of physical therapy profession and I want it now…“, Waqar told us when we met. He earned his DPT degree from Touro College and he put his efforts in developing his PT practice.

Now Waqar has decided to embark on a new journey to transform Angel Touch Physical Therapy into Angel Touch Physical Therapy and Diagnostics and make it the absolute place to go for care.

2. Healing Therapeutics Physical Therapy and Diagnostics in Portchester, NY

The HODS board is happy to WELCOME our new HODS partner, Dr. Enrique Jinete, owner of Healing Therapeutics Physical Therapy in Portchester, New York.

Rick has an inspiring story that led him to choose the field of Physical Therapy. Even though he was surrounded by healthcare professionals at an early age, it wasn’t until he suffered a personal injury of his own that his passion to become a clinician really sparked. After undergoing surgery for a knee injury – while playing soccer at St. John’s University – he was inspired and impressed by the results he experienced during physical therapy. He describes the memory as “life-changing” and it was then that he knew he wanted to work in the rehabilitation therapy field and model his practice around what he believed therapy should be like. A place of healing that offers compassionate, direct, and consistent care.

He earned a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from New York Institute of Technology in 2000 and a Clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Stony Brook University in 2004. After completing his graduate studies, he founded Healing Therapeutics and in a short time the practice grew to several locations throughout the tri-state area.

Now Rick has decided to embark to a new journey to transform Healing Therapeutics Physical Therapy into Healing Therapeutics Physical Therapy and Diagnostics and make it the absolute place to go for care.

With his high entrepreneurial spirit, Rick has now joined HODS to take his clinical and business skills to the next level.

Rick WELCOME to HODS!
