John D.


A 1988 graduate of the University of New England, I have been a physical therapist for 25 years. I moved to the central Maine area in 1989 and worked for 12 years at MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Seton Campus, evaluating and treating various orthopaedic problems and specializing in sports medicine.

I left MGMC to work for Maine Center for Integrated Rehabilitation for nine years, but returned in 2009 to join the MaineGeneral HomeCare & Hospice team. I've been providing care to central Maine residents ever since, with a concentration in the Oakland and Fairfield communities.

HomeCare allows me to work on a more personal level with patients and I feel I make a difference in their lives. That’s important to me. The variety of patients I treat continues to be a big factor in my decision to practice in the home environment.

I live in Oakland with my wife Lisa, who is also a MaineGeneral HomeCare physical therapist, and I’m proud to care for those in my community.  Lisa and I have four children and one grandchild who we are very proud of.  I also give back to my community by coaching youth sports and high school soccer and ice hockey at Messalonskee High School.
