“I love being part of the IRC team. I joined in June 2014, having not done post-acute rehab before. I found out I really enjoy making a difference in the lives of post-acute patient’s and working as a team to get them to their full rehab potential. I also enjoy the autonomy and the flexibility of determining your own schedule. There have been a few challenges along the way, such as not everyone being familiar with what a physiatrist is or does, but through promotion and education, these challenges are generally overcome over time.” – Dr. Mini Goddard, M.D.
“I like working wth IRC because I feel I can practice in an environment where I know that my skills will make a real and significant difference in people’s lives. When IRC doctors are present in a subacute rehab environment, we bring our expertise about the best rehabilitation outcomes possible, in the least amount of time, and with as smooth a process as possible for the patient and their family. I like getting to know my patients well and feel that they appreciate my efforts on their behalf.” – Dr. Steve Gnatz, M.D.
“I love the flexibility I have with IRC. I can be as busy as I want to be. I feel like I am my own boss, but still have the professional support of a business, with billing / coding and professional growth. Everyone at IRC is helpful, friendly, available and wonderful to work with. I’m happy to be part of the team!” – Dr. Julia Carp, M.D.
“I have been with IRC for 2.5 years and it has been the best professional decision I have made. I am fellowship trained in pain management and regenerative medicine. I was working in the outpatient arena performing multiple injections and dealing with chronic pain – I was nearing burnout. I needed a change and that was IRC. Now, I am doing what I am trained to do, pure Physiatry. I manage spasticity, pain, neuropathy, durable medical equipment, the rehab team, etc. I act as a Physiatry consultant who is free from being on call and managing issues such asblood pressure, diabetes, infections and the like.The subacute facilities that I go to know my value and appreciate what I do; they respect me and thank me every day that I am there. Since working with IRC, I now have the most valuable possession to all of us – time. I have the freedom and flexibility to make my own schedule and work the hours I choose rather than set appointment times, mandates or time constraints. I go to work everyday happy and knowing that I am making a difference, 1 patient at a time.” Dr. Anthony Burgess, M.D.
