I love being part of the IRC Physiatry team…
“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.
My skills will make a real difference in people’s lives…
“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.
Helpful, friendly and wonderful to work with
“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 3 years…
“I have been with IRC for 3 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.

Integrated Rehab Consultants (IRC) is the largest physiatry-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 (SNF’s) 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.
