Again, we have some very exciting news – we now have have a Occupational & Certified Hand Therapist! Her name is…Samera Ahmed!
Per Samera’s words, here is her abbreviated story:
I was born and raised in New York and moved to Yorktown with my husband, Rafayat. I am excited for this next chapter and to be making this area my new home. The people have been exceptionally welcoming and helpful.
I have been an Occupational Therapist for 4+years now. I did my undergraduate degree in CUNY York College and started my career as an occupational therapist in a hand therapy setting. Recently, I passed my Certified Hand Therapist exam, which requires a minimum of 3 years of clinical experience and 4000 hours in a hand therapy setting.
My knowledge in the intricacy of hand therapy makes me acutely aware and thankful for our hands during daily tasks and leisure. Hand therapy is crucial for recovery towards your activity of daily living and leisure participation. I have a strong passion for hand therapy and helping people return to their prior level of function.
My hobbies include water painting, exercising, leisure reading, home décor, and traveling with family and friends. I have been fortunate to travel internationally and experience several different cultures and customs.
We are so excited to have the talented Samera join Our PEAK TEAM…Where if you have a problem – We know someone who can give you a hand (2021 – the year of bad puns!). Until we chat again…

Ps: A recent a patient of Samera’s said this in their own words: “Samera, PEAK’s OT & Hand Specialist has helped me tremendously regain function and strength in my hand. She has been great to work with. I highly recommend PEAK to anyone.”
