Gail Erwin Hale, PT, DPT
“My heart is to serve my patients with the most appropriate evidence-based physical therapy intervention to achieve their functional goals for restoration of physical, spiritual, and mental health.” – GEH
Gail, the newest member of the Complete Physical Therapy Centers of Georgia team in 2021, graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor of Science degree in physical therapy. After growing up in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, she moved to Warm Springs, Georgia to begin a new life and employment at the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation, now called the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation. There Gail met her husband Melvin, who continues in his profession as a certified prosthetist orthotist (CPO).
Gail’s next exciting opportunity was in Leukerbad, Switzerland at a polio clinic. Observing the treatment interventions of therapists from other countries was instrumental in the experience progression, as well as traveling to Germany, Paris, and Italy for cultural exposure.
The educational advancement continued with a Master of Medical Science degree for physical therapy at Emory University, followed by a family of five daughters. When the girls were off to college, Gail returned to Emory University to obtain a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2003.
Gail has been employed for the past eight years at a hospital-based outpatient department, most recently focusing on patients with pelvic floor conditions, pre- and post-op prostate patients, and vestibular patients.
