Misty Pidgeon, PT, Founder / CEO
Misty graduated from the University of Vermont in May 1991. Her first job was at Duke Medical Center acute care. Over 25 years later she has worked for Treyburn Rehab, Durham Regional Home Health, Carolina Meadows and now NC Center for PT. While working for other facilities, Misty saw the emphasis change to QUANTITY over QUALITY of care and decided she could run a successful practice on her own with a focus on QUALITY of care.

Her hands-on treatment approach focuses on delivering high quality care that is individualized, comprehensive, and directed toward patients’ goals. She enjoys working with older adults to optimize their quality of life through balance training, fall risk reduction, and treating dizziness and vertigo. Michelle's’s personal athletic experience has also fed her passionate interest in injury prevention and return to sport rehabilitation. She is certified in the Functional Movement Screen™, Level 1, a unique tool that provides assessment of an athlete’s injury risk. At Triangle Volleyball Club, Dr. Fadool currently serves as an Injury Prevention Coordinator and has over 5 years’ experience coaching junior girls’ national travel teams.
Kate Palmer, PT, DPT
Dr. Palmer graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2014 with a BA in Spanish before going on to the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2018.

Kate is motivated to help patients achieve their individual goals and is excited to start her career at the NC Center for Physical Therapy.
The experience the staff of NC Center For Physical Therapy has gained in the last 27 years combined with the staff attending professional seminars means we stay on the forefront of the physical therapy profession.
