US Foot & Ankle Specialists, LLC (“USFAS”), a portfolio company of NMS Capital (“NMS”), announced today that it has acquired Affiliated Podiatrists, P.C. (“AP”). Based in Newport News, Virginia, AP has been providing podiatric care through its three locations to the Newport News area for over 75 years. AP is led by Dr. Howard Roesen, who will continue to lead the practice and benefit from the additional administrative support provided by USFAS.

“Dr. Roesen is a podiatrist we have known for several years now and are thrilled to bring into the USFAS family. He is a well-respected podiatrist with a great clinical reputation. This acquisition allows us to quickly build scale in a desirable market and expand our presence in Virginia. Furthermore, our partnership with NMS affords us the support and resources to execute on our strategy of partnering with high-quality practices and providers in existing and new markets as we seek to build USFAS as the provider of choice in the podiatric industry,” said Brett Richey, Chief Executive Officer of USFAS.

Dr. Howard Roesen commented, “I am delighted to partner with USFAS, a leading podiatry platform in the Mid-Atlantic region with a great culture of supporting its podiatrists. My practice and our patients will greatly benefit from being a part of a larger organization with more services and support for our patients to provide even better patient care.”

David Peterson, Managing Director at NMS, added, “We are very excited to partner with Dr. Roesen and his practice, our first affiliation post NMS’s initial investment with USFAS. AP is a high-quality podiatry practice that exemplifies what we look for in other podiatry practices interested in joining USFAS. This is our first of many affiliations, and we look forward to the future growth of the overall platform.”

As part of the affiliation, AP will benefit from USFAS’s extensive administrative and support services, including investments in clinical compliance, information technology, electronic medical records, revenue cycle management, payor credentialing and contracting, finance and accounting, human resources and business development.
