As a kid I always had a dream of wearing a white coat and having a doctor tag attached to my name.  When I got to know that patients could be treated without medicines, I decided that this is where I wanted to be.
Dr Masooma PT

After completing her 12th in science, Masooma went to Manipal University, Manipal, to pursue her dream of becoming a physiotherapist. She proved her passion to become one when she topped her university in 2012.  Later, she started working at a rehab Centre In Udupi during her internship where she got good exposure in treating a variety of cases. After putting in all the hard work and becoming a physiotherapist, she came back to Mumbai to start her career. However, it was not all that rosy. She was finding it very difficult to get a good job so one day she decided to run her own show and started her own setup in Lokhandwala, Andheri West in 2013.

Back in 2006-2007, when I first decided to become a physiotherapist, people only thought about physiotherapy as nothing but massage. Thanks to my parents who were extremely supportive and sent me to Manipal University to pursue my dream.

Masooma struggled initially to get patients for her clinic. Someone less determined might have surrendered to all the pressure and given up. She, however, even while having to work for 12 hours in a day, had a clear goal in mind – to bring smiles on her patients’ faces. She always believed in herself and never gave up. Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, she kept on assessing, diagnosing and treating a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders. Her work and results spoke about her talent and more and more patients kept on reposing trust on her. From commoners to treating celebrities, Masooma kept outdoing herself at what she does best – help people live a better life, and she has never looked back ever since.

For me, every patient is like a board exam where I just cannot fail and this dedication helps me achieve results. My patients define me. So the only thing that keeps me going is their trust and belief in me, the smile on their faces when they can do what they once couldn’t, the blessings that they give me in return.
