We Inspect Acquires Certified Mold Inspections and The Mold Guy: Customers Benefit

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- We Inspect, LLC, a global mold inspection, consulting and health technology company, recently acquired Certified Mold Inspections and The Mold Guy. Its acquisitional goal is to unify these individually-owned family businesses under one name and to better serve the community as a whole.

We Inspect was founded in 2018 by Corey Levy and Brian Karr; Certified Mold Inspections was founded by Steve Levy in 2004; and The Mold Guy was established by Mark Levy in 2005. As individual companies, the Levy family serviced different territories and were collectively known as the number one mold and biotoxin resource for medical practitioners across the country.

"These acquisitions have provided the company with the expertise and human capital needed to expand its educational and consulting capabilities, allowing it to fulfill its mission of empowering people everywhere with the tools and services they need to create healthy homes," Karr says.

Streamlining the family business under the one We Inspect name, will now allow it to serve significantly more mold-sensitive individuals by deploying its 42 years of experience across in-person home inspections, remote consulting and educational offerings.

Unlike other mold inspection companies that rely on antiquated inspection and testing practices which oftentimes dismiss the presence of mold contamination in homes, We Inspects' #FindProveRemove framework has been shaped by the most current scientific findings and proven by more than $20 million dollars of successful mold remediations.

"The majority of mold contamination in homes is hidden, but most mold inspection companies don't understand how to find it," Karr says. "They often rely on outdated testing methods that provide false negatives 70 percent of the time which is dangerous and gives occupants a false sense of security and perpetuates chronic illness."

Karr says that what sets them apart from other mold inspection companies is their ability to find the hidden sources of mold contamination in a home.

"Once we know where it's coming from, it can be remediated and the occupant can begin to heal in their home," he says.

Additional advantages of streamlining these businesses include free training and actionable resources for medical practitioners and their patients (bridging communication gaps), #moldfinders: RADIO podcast, scholarships, discounts for mold-affected people worldwide, DIY home screens and consulting services for anyone regardless of where they live or their financial situation.

About We Inspect, LLC:

We Inspect is a global mold inspection, consulting, and health technology company that helps mold-sensitive individuals regain their health through education and the environmental assessment and testing of their homes and buildings for mold, mycotoxins and other indoor pathogens. It has helped thousands of people across six continents to create homes that support their ability to heal from mold-related illnesses.

Docsnap Partners with FlexCare Digital Health to Expand Services to Members, Families, Employers, Veterans, Medicare, and Medicaid Patients

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Docsnap, the first nationwide Consumer Health Utility, supports consumers leveraging their HIPAA rights to take ownership of all their medical records. Docsnap announced today its partnership with FlexCare Digital Health to expand access to quality healthcare services for members, families, employees, veterans, Medicare, and Medicaid Patient services. This partnership allows docsnaps' members to benefit from Telemedicine & TeleDentistry virtually, 24/7/365. Docsnap and FlexCare will start their partnership immediately to begin providing digital health access to all docsnap members and enterprise customers.

"Docsnap is excited to welcome FlexCare Digital Health to our partnership family, filling a vital need for our members. As the founder of docsnap and the father of a daughter with a chronic health issue, having access to virtual care visits when it's needed and not when you are told you can have it is critical for the reduction of pain and suffering, stress and anxiety, and the high cost of avoidable urgent care and emergency room visits," said founder Dr. Anthony Mari.

According to UnitedHealth Group research, two-thirds of hospital ED visits annually by individuals in the United States - 18 million out of 27 million - are avoidable. By docsnap and FlexCare providing access 24/7 to compensate for the nation's shortage of Primary Care providers, docsnap provides members "peace-of-mind," knowing they have access to advice about urgent and emergent care when they need it!

"FlexCare is excited to partner with docsnap in providing virtual care services for their Consumer Health Utility," said Principal Lee Shoemake. "We view this as a tremendous opportunity to provide a valuable benefit to millions of docsnap members."

A virtual consult by a licensed physician or dentist from the comfort and convenience of a computer or mobile device can help members get the care they need when they need it.

FlexCare is committed to fulfilling this important member benefit, which will not only assist with providing on demand care, but it will also close the gap of availability to digital health providers.

About FlexCare

FlexCare Digital Health is a leading provider of online and on-demand healthcare delivery services to private and public employers, associations, brokers, school systems, and more. By using digital health services instead of more expensive urgent care and ER visits, FlexCare cuts unnecessary costs and keeps members smiling, instead of waiting.

In addition to Telemedicine, FlexCare also offers TeleDentistry, Virtual Primary Care, Dermatology, Behavioral Health, Telespine and other digital health services.

FlexCare seamlessly provides multiple member benefits, either bundled or unbundled, which improves not only access, but cuts the overall cost of care for members and their dependents.

Veteran Podiatrist Joins Modern Foot & Ankle, Serves Celebration, Kissimmee

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- For the past twenty years, Orlandoans in need of foot and ankle reconstruction, heel pain treatment, or help with a badly stubbed toe have heard the same refrain: Go see Dr. Talbert. Now the venerable doctor has joined Modern Foot & Ankle and is excited to serve new, growing communities in the area.

Board-certified podiatric surgeon Todd C. Talbert, DPM, came aboard the Central Florida healthcare group earlier this month. He practices primarily in the Celebration, Fla., clinic while offering evening availability at the group's brand-new location in Kissimmee, Fla.

"I was drawn toward Modern Foot & Ankle due to their up-to-date techniques, ideas, and equipment," said Dr. Talbert. "Their doctors, staff, and offices are vibrant with cutting-edge technology."

Specializing in sports medicine, trauma and fracture surgery and care, and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, Dr. Talbert has also developed a Center of Distinction for Lapiplasty 3D bunionectomy in Orlando. He's been the recipient of Orlando Family Magazine's Top Physician award three times, including in 2022, for going above and beyond to move medicine, patient care, and outcomes forward, according to the magazine's website.

"I have developed myself into one of the most well-renowned podiatrists in the city," said Dr. Talbert. "I am best known for my outstanding bedside manner and making my patients feel comfortable in understanding their diagnoses and treatments."

Not only is he a veteran in his field-he's also a veteran. Dr. Talbert's storied career in medicine started when he served in the United State Air Force as a paramedic. He then put himself through college working as a surgical technician and podiatric medical assistant.

But his journey began even before that.

"When I was five years old, I fell out of a tree and broke my arm," he explained. "While I was getting the cast put on me, I remember telling my mother that one day I would become a doctor."

Dr. Talbert's time at the podiatric clinic as a young adult inspired him to become a podiatrist, and he later gained acceptance into the Temple Univeristy School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia.

"After medical school, I received extensive training in traumatology, foot and ankle reconstruction, wound care and limb salvage, and elective foot and ankle surgery through AdventHealth East Orlando," he stated. "Since then, I have continued to give back to my profession by training surgical residents on a weekly basis."

Although Dr. Talbert says he misses his patient base in Oviedo, Fla., and Orlando, he is enthusiastic about his relocation to Celebration.

"I fondly remember Celebration being developed by Disney World under the concepts of EPCOT and have come to love its gorgeous architecture, focus on technology, sense of community, and, of course, annual snowfall!" he said. "I'm excited to be a new part of this spectacular and unique city where I will bring my expertise and one-on-one care and continue to treat every new patient like a member of my familiy."

Tampa Bay Foot And Ankle Provider Promotes Conservative Options

LARGO, Fla -- A new podiatrist is making waves at Modern Foot & Ankle. Patrick Derby, DPM, joined the Central Florida podiatric group recently, invigorating the Tampa, Westchase, and Largo clinics with his surgical dexterity, expansive knowledge of conservative therapies-and love of surfing.

"Tampa Bay is fantastic," enthused Dr. Derby. "There is no shortage of activities to participate in, it's near the water - which is a big pull for me as a Florida native-and the opportunities to provide healthcare are abundant and exciting."

He added that the Tampa Bay community is friendly and diverse, making it an inviting area to work in as a provider.

"My goal is to be a resource for my patients, to educate them to prevent as much pathology as possible while building relationships and trust within the community," said Dr. Derby. "I always strive to approach pathology conservatively before considering surgical interventions whenever possible."

Before joining Modern Foot & Ankle, Dr. Derby completed his surgical residency in Michigan, where he was trained in treating a range of pathologies at varying degrees of severity. He focused on reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, diabetic wound care, and minimally-invasive bunion correction.

"My approach as a physician aligns with the philosophy and approach of the practice: patient-focused and centering on conservative treatment whenever possible before considering surgical options," said Dr. Derby. "The technology-based approach also streamlines patient care and affords many resources which really appeals to me as a physician."

Modern Foot & Ankle clinics feature advanced in-house diagnostic equipment, easy online booking and check-in, and evening hours. There are currently thirteen locations within Orlando and Tampa, making it a convenient choice for many of those suffering from foot and ankle conditions.

"I think what stands out about patient care at Modern Foot & Ankle is, first and foremost, the attention and care that is given to each and every patient," said Dr. Derby. "That, combined with the ease in which appointments can be booked or rescheduled as well as a host of resources available to patients, makes it a unique and positive experience overall for patients."

Since September, Dr. Derby has been busy ingratiating himself with the community and his patient base. Through Modern Foot & Ankle, he continues to take on new challenges daily.

"One of the things that keeps me excited in podiatry is the variability day to day," he explained. "Whether it's routine office work, trauma, inpatient medicine, surgery, or other aspects of the profession, every day is fresh and exhilarating."

Modern Foot & Ankle Launches Clinics In Orlando, Kissimmee

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A new podiatric clinic by Modern Foot & Ankle opens today in Kissimmee-the group's thirteenth clinic in Central Florida. Today also marks two months since the opening of the Kirkman office. Located at 5690 Windhover Dr. in Orlando, this clinic serves the Kirkman, Florida Center, Dr. Phillips, and Universal areas.

Felipe Peterson, DPM, a Brazilian native who comes to Modern Foot & Ankle from private practice in St. Petersburg, Fla., is treating patients at both locations. He was excited to make the move to Orlando, which he refers to as "one of the most multiethnical and transient cities in the world."

"I love how full of life and zest the area is," Dr. Peterson said. "The many attractions and the energy of the city makes people want to live their best lives."

Dr. Peterson says he is a "family man at heart" and enjoys the prospect of working in a culturally-diverse community geared toward families.

"Having the opportunity to serve families in need of the best foot and ankle care is my passion and lifelong dream," he explained. "Kissimmee is diverse and particularly full of Hispanic neighborhoods. As a Latino man who grew up in a similar kind of neighborhood, being able to maintain ties to my culture while providing care for a patient population I truly understand and appreciate is what drew me here."

Conveniently located at 3070 Loopdale Ln., Dr. Peterson is joined by Todd Talbert, DPM, in seeing patients at the Kissimmee clinic. Dr. Peterson also practices at a third Modern Foot & Ankle location in Celebration, Fla.

Modern Foot & Ankle is known for curating a progressive model for podiatric healthcare, using medical expertise, compassion, and technology as the foundation for care. The Kissimmee clinic offers the brand's signature features: advanced in-house equipment, extended hours, and easy online booking and check-in.

"I wanted to join Modern Foot & Ankle because our vision for patient care is in direct alignment," said Dr. Peterson. "My ultimate goal is to provide the absolute highest level of patient care without compromise, and Modern Foot & Ankle provides all the necessary resources to make that happen."

Dr. Peterson is a board-certified physician specializing in sports medicine, elective surgery, diabetic limb salvage, and gout management. He chose to pursue podiatry because it is "extremely hands-on and rewarding," as he is frequently able to offer immediate relief to patients.

"I am committed to providing unparalleled and uncompromised care, medically and surgically, for the foot and ankle," Dr. Peterson added. "I treat patients with the utmost care and with their overall well-being in mind."
