"I highly recommend Teri Carr, PT. She is an extraordinary physical therapist and care giver. Her years of experience and constant continued learning make her an absolute expert. She is such a caring person and very effective. She works with her patients to find a plan that will work for them. She focuses on pelvic floor issues – including nerves in the pelvis. She is the only expert listed for the state of Maine for pudendal neuralgia. I am so lucky to have her as my therapist.
The staff here is also excellent. Everyone is upbeat and helpful, from the owner (Doug) to the support staff (Katie). I’ll never go anywhere else for physical therapy! "

"Teri Carr and the crew at Pouzol's Physical Therapy have been extremely helpful with dealing with my health issues. The Pelvic Floor therapy for my abdominal pain has increased my quality of life twofold and when I had back issues last year Teri helped me with pre and post surgery pain and recovery. The atmosphere there is a place of healing and the people are all very friendly and I consider them as friends. I would recommend them to everyone and come to think of it I have.
