Patient Testimonials

  • After total knee replacement both knees 17 months apart the care I received from my physical therapist Hammouda Soliman was impeccable. His concern, his caring and his one on one for his patients is impeccable. 100% top shelf. No where do I know of this kind of care.

    His office for outpatient rehab care is located in Staten Island. His assistant Liz works with patients and work right along side of him. Very efficient nothing is a miss. The machines we work on are excellent and the atmosphere is so compelling, very important for healing. I feel so blessed to be in Soliman’s care. I give Soliman, Liz, and his well equipped office 5 stars for being most involved and successful with patients – this, is where we get well –

  • I had total knee replacement surgery on two knees on June 5th and the other on June 7th. After 5 days at Mt. Sina I went for 9 days of rehab in Staten Island. I have 6 weeks of in house rehab and then went for outpatient rehab with Dr. Soliman 3 days a week, two hours a day.

    All I can say is WOW! Did I choose the right therapist! Not a “factory” where you are a Medicare number. Dr. Soliman is a very compassionate and patient person. In addition to his one on one program and excellent exercise equipment you feel very comfortable that he really cares about you.

    After a new months of intensive work with me, I just threw away my cane and in another month or so will be fully recovered!

    He is the real deal and I highly recommend his services.

  • Dr. Soliman has treated me on multiple occasions and has always done excellent work. He knows the history of my injuries and always takes that into account when providing therapy. But he’s also not afraid to push when necessary; you won’t get better if you don’t put in the effort, and Dr. Solimon constantly reminded me of this.

    I first saw him for a pair of muscle tears in my right shoulder, injuries I’d suffered years earlier but never really addressed because I was an obstinate teenager. Eventually, I grew up and admitted I needed help once I couldn’t put on a coat without gritting my teeth to mask the pain. A few therapists I had consulted about it recommended surgery to repair the tears, which I really didn’t want to go through…because shoulder surgery is extremely painful (this relevant later). Dr. Soliman instead diligently worked with me 3 days a week, slowly strengthening the muscles around the tears over the course of six months. My shoulder felt almost as strong as it ever had been, without having to go under the knife.

    A few years later, I returned to Dr. Soliman for another injury to the same shoulder, which unfortunately had required surgery. Pro-tip: shoulder surgery is horribly painful. It was way worse than the injury was. The recovery was an extremely long road, but Soliman was there every step of the was. He spent hours with me relaxing and exercising my shoulder when I didn’t have the strength to do it. He got to work right away to keep my shoulder from freezing up and becoming even more painful. It was another arduous six month, but by the time I’d left his care, I was confident that my injury would no longer intrude on my daily life. A year after the surgery I can play most sports without issue or pain, and I’ve got 98% range of motion. All because Soliman wanted to keep working with me and keep pushing me. Other therapists will do the minimum required of them just to get you out the door, but Soliman is invested in your recovery. As long as you want to recover, I can’t think of a better therapist to see.

  • I was very fortunate to get Dr. Soliman as my physical therapist. He enabled me to gain some mobility by rising up to use my walker, though I am still lacking stability. He has enabled me to use the stairs but I need help.  Dr. Soliman has combined his professional knowledge together with kindness, so he merged “head” and “heart”. I consider him a friend.

  • I have had two hips and one knee replaced over a four-year time frame. I had a wonderful surgeon but I credit Dr. Hammouda Soliman for my full recovery. After each surgery, it was Dr. Soliman who set up a system of exercises for me that allowed me to walk with the gait of a younger woman. Thank you for your care and concern for my FULL recovery!

  • Dr. Soliman definitely has healing hands. When I first walked in to his office I was using a cane and had terrible back pain. He immediately discovered the problem and with strong, skillful hands and other techniques treated my back which has significantly relieved the pain. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Soliman for all he has done to help me live with much less back pain.
