Many people end up in jobs that suit them just okay. Not Rami Said, D.P.T. His work as a physical therapist fits him like a surgical glove. Ask anyone: His academic background as an engineer combines with his personality to make the clinics and classrooms of Columbia an outstanding fit for him.
It’s tempting to trace Dr. Said’s specialty in the complex structure of human joints back to the jigsaw puzzles of his preschool years. He liked to turn the pieces upside-down, so there was no picture, to make solving the puzzle more challenging. His mother found him doing this when he was just 4 years old.
