First of all; thanks to ZocDoc that they have Dr Ibrahim listed with them.. I was told with foot Doctors that the only treatment available for my heel pain is ESWT.. I tried everything physical therapy, medicine, injections.. But I can't play basketball at my college team.. I was suffering form 8 months.. I started looking for that shockwave articles..

Perfect Doctor.. Nice place.. I will see Dr ibrahim again..He is the best Physical Therapist.
Doctor is super thorough and really cared about me feeling better. He worked on me for about an hour and a half and after the appointment I felt significantly better. I would recommend this doctor to anyone needing PT. One negative thing is the common issue with any office-the front end. If the front end doesn't acknowledge patient and doesn't make them feel welcome, a negative impression can leave a giant footprint.
Great doctor, nice office, and friendly staff.
Dr. Ibrahim is very knowledgeable and down to earth. He treated my son's foot problem, but unfortunately the problem could not be repaired with PT. I liked this doctor and will use him again in the future if necessary.
It was an excellent experience. The doctor is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and professional.
I have low back pain for almost 2 months.. Nothing help.. I tried strong pain medicine..even got one spinal injection from the physiatrist but still the same...I saw the physical therapist for 2 visits and he cured my pain.. Thanks Dr Ibrahim for your kind and professional way to evaluate and treat my back pain.. I will recommend him to all my friends.
he's very professional,listened to my issues and worked well with me.
Despite the person at the front desk kith lots of attitude and too busy on her cellphone, Dr. Mahmoud took me right away and he was very helpful and understood my needs. He's the only one professional at this location that I've seen so far. I'm happy with his services.
Really I like the professional way of Dr Ibrahim.. He treat my hip pain in 3 PT visits.. I was able to walk normally again.. Thanks to his nice stuff too especially Salve; she was helping me all the time. Final word.. yes Dr Ibrahim is the best Physical Therapist!

He is used exercises and modality to treat my knee pain. Really; I like him.. I will recommend him to all my friends!.. Thanks to ZocDoc to have this over qualified doctor in their list!
The PT is really good and very professional. The office is very small, not vey clean and they don't have ramp. The receptis are rude, always on the phone and ignore the patient when ask questions. I'm very disappointed with the staff but very happy with the PT.
I definitely recommend dr. Ibrahim. He's nice, has good bedside manner, professional and his hands are magic! I have back pain but after his massages I feel like a new person!

Very thorough and explained everything to me. I Highly recommend this doctor!
He was very thorough and also helped me by being humorous;
This doctor made me extremely uncomfortable, I don't want to get into details but I would warn younger women to not go here.
Dr. Ibrahim was very friendly and helpful. He was interested to understand all details of my problem and gave me a lot of practical advice and suggestions for my back and neck area. Their office is very nice. Dr. Ibrahim is highly recommended. He mostly treated my back and neck by hands on therapy with some modalities.. i feel better after the fourth visit. He is the Best Physical Therapist in NY.
Of all the PT facilities I have visited, this is the most professional office I have visited. Dr Ibrahim's expertise is outstanding as well as his ability to explain issues & proposed treatments.. His ability to put the patient at easy is very good. I recommend him to all who need physical therapy and pain management.
He was not much of a talker and the office I went to in Brooklyn was far from the nicest I've been too. BUT he was very diligent. He went in depth into my injuries and found out a few things that none of my other docs did. He did a number of different treatments. I feel very hopeful that he will be able to help me in a short amount of time! Very good physical therapist!
Dr Ibrahim is the Best!!..I like the way he evaluated my back.. From the first session I felt a new person pain free... He knows how to treat my back.
A solid five-star rating to Dr. Ibrahim for my overall experience, and I highly recommend him. Dr Ibrahim knowledgeable, experienced, professional, patient, and encouraging. My problem started with some minor discomfort around my right sit bone, which in a few days turned into a burning pain. Not only did I have trouble sitting, my right hip and thigh felt terribly inflamed when I had to move around. When I was awake, I was in pain and could only inch along from room to room at home, and kneeling down was out of the question. By the time I finally managed to squeeze an appointment at my PCP, I had already been suffering two full weeks of intense, throbbing pain, without any pain relief medicine. Diagnosed with SI joint pain, I was referred to Dr Ibrahim, since the doctor heard really good reviews about him and his facility. Dr Ibrahim noticed that my alignment was off and started working on the problem, and he also helped me realize that I was only taking one-third of the prescribed anti-inflammatory medication. Dr Ibrahim thought pelvic rotation might have been the main cause of my problem, and performed some manual adjustment. From the first session I was already feeling the difference, and walking became much more manageable. From that point on, I became mostly pain free during the day! also, Dr Ibrahim described the treatment sessions and exercises in great detail and accuracy in order to help those who have similar problems see how capable Dr Ibrahim was, but I realized every single patient may be a unique case, so I guess I could only roughly summarize the focus of my session with Dr Ibrahim into the following: a lot of pelvic adjustment and some strengthening of my weak core muscles. most of his work was hand on physical therapy which i like!!... Dr Ibrahim has been doing a terrific job un-doing the bad consequences of my decades of poor posture as well as my bad habit of sitting at the computer for hours, and always has a fun, easy-to-grasp way of describing the exercises. Simply put, Dr Ibrahim helped me "get back on my feet"! In addition to Dr Ibrahim, I've had great experience with the ladies at the front desk. Dr Ibrahim showed me I needed to take part and pride in the rehabilitation process, and that I should not fear the pain. I am sure he has no idea how much the session have helped me--when the pain was at its worst before the PT, jumping in front of a subway train had briefly crossed my mind but would surely be a sin (and mess up other riders' travel plans!). I know every other review is vouching for their own therapist as if this were a contest for Best Physical Therapist =). These pieces add to the fact that Health Check has outstanding therapist. That said, I want to give a shout-out to Dr Ibrahim: You are THE BEST!
If you has to go to Physical Therapy, you MUST, absolutely must, see Dr Ibrahim. He is so incredibly talented, not to mention attentive to your needs, as well as really friendly and smart. I look forward to the days of the week when I see him, simply because I know that I will feel so good upon leaving the appointment. He is the BEST physical therapist in, I am going to say, the WORLD, and leave it at that. I have not had much success with PT in the past. My luck changed when I met Dr Ibrahim. Dr Ibrahim is amazing. He is knowledgeable, professional and really good about fixing my knee! I dont know what I would do without him. Dr Ibrahim understood my condition immediately, spoke to me about potential triggers, and started working on me right away.
5 stars for this place! I saw Dr Ibrahim after having ACL and meniscus surgery. He was great, very thorough and motivating. I made excellent progress with him, and my orthopedic surgeon was happy with the results as well. Overall, the staff is friendly, and the place is well organized and clean.
Maybe I was there on a hectic day but the staff was unorganized, doctor was rushed and i didn't feel as if I got the most thorough treatment. i waited over half hour past my appointment time and then was herded into the back only because I insisted on being seen as I had to run home to my child. Doctor Ibrahim seemed knowledgeable enough but diagnosed treatment without offering much explanation. He put me on a machine that generated electrical currents to stimulate my bad ankle and left me in the room - that would've been OK except that part of the machine on my ankle started heating up and burning me. I was about to rip it off but wasn't sure if it was supposed to feel that way having neve been to PT. He came back in, adjusted it and left again - but it still burned and I ended up with slight burns on my ankle. The skin was red and chafed and started peeling later that week. i'm not sure if it was due to the icy cold spray he put in on my ankle first (which also burned) or the machine part heating up on my skin. The exam room was a bit shabby and the equipment looked like it needs updating - the electrical stimulus machine had a tag on it with dates when it was calibrated and recalibrated (2005 and 2006 respectively). Not sure if that matters but i did wonder if that was what contributed to the burn. i have scheduled an appt with another PT office and will not go back to this one again.
My 95 year old dad had a very bad backache and Dr. Ibrahim was able to help him and make him feel much better.
I am already feeling better. Dr Ibrahim cure my pain in two visits
Dr Ibrahim is the best Physical therapist in NY
I waited almost an hour! Thankfully the lound playing telelvison was not on. Nonetheless, I mangage to get some reading done.
Dr. Ibrahim quickly understood my medical problems and set up procedures to get more information on these issues - and to get me into a physical therapy program immediately. He understands medical issues, how to move towards improving the problems, and importantly understands how to deal with patients. He's very knowledgeable too. He's quite an impressive professional.
The waiting time was not bad. But once I finally saw Dr. Ibrahim, he really listened, asked questions, and offered solutions for my condition. I had an amazing physical therapy experience with him. Dr Ibrahim was very friendly and professional. I will be going back for more therapy.
Thanks to ZocDoc, Dr Ibrahim is friendly, easy to talk to and seems very knowledgeable about his field. I'm definitely going to him again. It was very helpful to see Dr Ibrahim for my condition and I am excited about his non-traditional methods of evaluation and treatment.
Midtown office building isn't totally appealing. The practice seems to favor holistic methods if you're into that. I wouldn't say I had the most thorough visit (I was expecting a full hour, since it was PT, but I was in and out in 30 minutes) & I didn't feel like I was being heard, but I did get a few exercises so we'll see how it works out.
