We encourage the skilled nursing facilities we partner with to share their stories and experiences with us so we know “what they are saying”.
Have data or a story to share from your facility?
Send it over, we’re always listening!
“Since Dr. Tariq from IRC started at my facility, the results have been amazing! In just six months of working with him on key areas to improve, the number of patients we treat for rehabilitation increased from 29.2% to 37.2%, our return to hospital decreased from 21.% to 15%, RU% went from 63% to 74% and best of all our CMS Quality of Patient Care Star Rating for pain went from a 2 to 3 because of his close monitoring and staff education on pain reported by our short term and long term patients.”
UPDATE: “Since Dr. Tariq from IRC started at my facility, the data results continue to improve. In twelve months the number of patients we treat for rehabilitation increased from 29.2% to 45%, our return to hospital decreased from 21.% to 14%, our Quality Measures star improved from a 2-star to a 4-star, and we were able to achieve a deficiency-free federal CMS survey in August 2015!
Currently, we are pending Joint Commission Accreditation with a post-acute certification. I want to Thank Dr. Tariq for being a part of what I feel is the very best! We, and our patients really appreciate all he does and his support over the past year.”

“We have worked with Dr. Patel for a few years and he has been a wonderful addition to our care team. Not only does nursing and therapy love the days he comes in, but our patients like the one on one attention he gives them and the time he takes to answer their questions. Our Medical Director has been so happy with Dr. Patel here because he knows there is a physician who specializes in therapy helping ensure our patients transfer back home safely when ready with the proper equipment. Thank you again!”

“Dr. Goddard works closely with us, and helps us, so we can help patients better get to where they need to be, in order to go home. Her input and guidance is valuable to us!”

Integrated Rehab Consultants (IRC) is the largest physician-owned physiatry group in the country. Physiatry, also known as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability (bone, brain, neuromuscular experts) and quality of life. Our physiatrists work with skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to optimize therapy treatment plans; focusing on managing pain, functional rehabilitation and recovery for patients with physical and cognitive impairments or disabilities, we can help patients discharge quicker and safer – adding a layer of clinical oversight and capabilities that most SNFs and their patients have been underserved historically.
