'Ted' Edward S. Greeley II

"Ted" Edward S. Greeley II, PT, DPT, CSCS

What led you to become a PT?

I am one of the few therapists I know that did not receive any physical therapy as an athlete through my youth. I first attended college for mechanical engineering and wanted to find a career that kept me active through the day but still challenged my mechanical mind. I eventually made my way to the career I love.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I treat the whole body and multiple body systems not just the area that hurts. The main dysfunction is often not the pain location. I try to make therapy fun and have some laughs on the road to recovery.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I dabble in many things: CrossFit, skiing, rock climbing, ice hockey, camping, and hiking. I have a son that keeps me very busy and I try to pass my love of the outdoors onto him.

Catherine Heath

Catherine Heath, DPT

What led you to become a PT?

Fascination with the human body and its response to exercise led me to physical therapy. I was originally interested in professional coaching but then found I was more interested in rehabilitation.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I gear every treatment plan towards an individual’s fitness level to aid them with meeting their personal goals. We are all unique individuals; therefore, your treatment should be unique to you. As an endurance athlete, I know the importance of proper care and training.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities Maine has to offer: hiking, camping, biking, rock climbing and skiing. I’m an avid triathlete and compete in long-distance running events.

Derek Milone

Derek Milone, MS, PT

What led you to become a PT?

I found myself injured frequently as a high school athlete which naturally landed me in a physical therapy office. I experienced the healing effects that a seasoned therapist can provide. I also noticed that all the physical therapists were having fun. This led me to pursue PT in college and here I am talking to you.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I have the ability to assess both the root cause of dysfunction and empower people to find their physical and mental strength. I partner with my patients to motivate them to reach their goals.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to stay active whether it is snowboarding, hiking, boating, taking in a car show or hanging out with my wife and kids. I am a weekend warrior car mechanic and you can find me in church on Sunday.

Nathaniel Runge

Nathaniel Runge, DPT

What led you to become a PT?

I was a second-year pre-med major with no occupation in mind. I knew I wanted a job that was hands on and interacted with people. After shadowing many medical positions, I knew PT was the one for me.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

Both my patient and I can often forget we’re doing work during our interaction because we slip a lot of fun and music appreciation in with my comprehensive PT program. And at day’s end, I think to myself, “Oh, yeah, I have to document this!”

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have three daughters under the age of 10 so much of my life focuses around them. When I am not contributing to all the interactions of family life, I am volunteering for various coaching positions.

Nancy Crawford

Nancy Crawford, PT
Clinic Director - Windham

What led you to become a PT?

My interest in Physical Therapy began in High School. At the time, I was exploring possible career paths that would blend my love for science and desire to work with people. I quickly found that Physical Therapy was the ideal blend of my interests. After over 20 plus years of PT, I have not regretted my decision. I continue to find it to be a satisfying and interesting profession.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I offer over 20 years of experience, not only in outpatient orthopedics but also in rehabilitation of neurological disorders. I regularly attend continuing education classes to keep my skills current and innovative. We have a strong team approach at Riverview and work together to improve our patients’ function and minimize pain.

What do you like to do outside of work?

On the weekends, I can usually be found doing some kind of activity in the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, skiing, cycling and kayaking.

Christine Dube, PT

What led you to become a PT?

A friend of the family who had a background in physical education led me into it. He was working with a chiropractor, I shadowed him and found that I liked being in the medical field.

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I think sometimes people are very fearful when they come in for physical therapy. I try to get to know them outside of the injury and that leads to developing a good plan of care.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy cooking and hanging out with friends, watching my kids play volleyball, paddle boarding, snowshoeing and walking my dog.

Michael Viricel

Michael Viricel, MSPT, CSCS

What led you to become a PT?

Growing up, I was always enjoyed math and science classes. In high school, I took an Anatomy and Physiology class, which sparked my interest in pursuing a career in a health-related profession. I wasn't sure which direction to take when looking at colleges, so I applied to multiple schools with different choices of major. I settled on Husson College and chose Physical Therapy as my major. The choice was made based on being able to live at home and maintain a part-time job while in school. I was not sure how much I would enjoy Physical Therapy when I started, but once I got into science and anatomy classes, I was hooked.

What motivates you professionally?

I really love when I can improve a patient’s quality of life and return them to pain-free functional mobility. I know I've done my job well when a former client refers family and friends to me. That’s what keeps me motivated in continuing my career as a physical therapist.

Chris Heuss

Chris Heuss, PT
Clinic Director - Bath

What led you to become a PT?

I was working as a counselor and advocate for adults with disabilities and I saw the significant benefit that occurred when I took my clients to their physical therapy sessions and I thought, “I want to be a physical therapist.”

With all of the PTs available, why should a patient choose you?

I’m very good at listening to my patients and finding out their personal goals. People seem to feel really comfortable hanging out with me and our clinic has a very friendly environment.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like the outdoors so backpacking, kayaking and, more recently, I’ve taken up rock climbing. I like to hike in the White Mountains and the Katahdin region, and I am most happy when I’m doing this with my wife and two teenage boys.

Carrie Mitchell

Carrie Mitchell, ATC & PTA

What led you to become a physical therapist assistant?

I wanted to pursue a medically based profession. Also, I've always been interested in sports/health, so athletic training/sports medicine and physical therapy were a logical choice.

What makes you a great assistant to work with?

I have been in my career since 1990, so I do have years of experience on my side. My first job out of college allowed me to work in an environment that fostered forward-thinking and learning. I was lucky enough to work with many exceptional clinicians, one of whom is the owner of Riverview. I feel so lucky to work in a profession I love and am able to constantly learn and grow in.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy teaching Vinyasa Flow yoga and have for 4 years. I love trail running at our local land preserve all year round. My husband and two chocolate labs also love skiing, hiking and boating. We have lived in the Midcoast for 24 years and love every minute of it!
