Urgent Care

“It is truly a privilege to have Janet Gillis, her colleagues and staff as our partners in providing state-of-the-art care to our patients with particular gastrointestinal conditions. Physical therapy involving pelvic floor exercises and biofeedback has been recognized as the treatment of choice for certain defecation disorders. In particular, accidental bowel leakage, also known as fecal incontinence, can greatly benefit from physical therapy. Additionally, inability to relax pelvic floor muscles in order to defecate may lead to anismus, also known as non-relaxing puborectalis muscle. After such conditions are diagnosed in our Southcoast Colorectal Care Center, I have been pleased to refer our patients for physical therapy to Janet Gillis and her team, with excellent results and patient satisfaction.” – Dr. Victor Pricolo

“I send quite a lot of skeptical patients to pelvic floor physical therapy. When they follow up with me they are so pleased and grateful for the referral. I hear all the time how comfortable they are made to feel once there. Patients are amazed by the results they see in regards to improving their pain and/or incontinence.”  – Dr. Michelle Pacheco

“The pelvic floor PT program is a valuable asset to my gynecological practice. Patients that I have referred to Janet Gillis have always been treated with the professionalism and respect that it takes to deal with difficult and sensitive issues. We are fortunate to have such a valuable service here in our community.” – Dr. Michelle Hughes

“Having joined Southcoast less than a year ago as a urologist with a specialty in incontinence and female pelvic medicine, I feel so fortunate to have incredibly capable and skilled pelvic physical therapy colleagues like Janet, Justina and Laura. Surgery is only a piece of the picture. Long-term rehabilitation is paramount for life-long pelvic health which affects bowel, bladder and sexual medicine. To say they have helped our patients is an understatement – they have given our patients with chronic debilitating pelvic dysfunction a new and improved quality of life. ” – Dr. Didi P. Theva
