Broker | Practice Evaluation |  Purchase/Sale 

Practice Consultants provides business expertise to the ophthalmic community throughout the United States. We assist sellers of practices and buyers seeking practices.

In addition to practice brokerage, we provide a full range of appraisal and practice management consulting services. You may have a question about financial improvement, bringing in an associate or partner, developing an exit plan for yourself, determining the market value of the practice (including for divorce cases), or just some uncertainty about how your practice operates.

SELLER BROKERAGE: If a sale or partial sale is contemplated, we will:
  • ✅ Analyze market value and help set an asking price.
  • ✅  Market the practice based on client preferences (publicly or confidentially).
  • ✅ Screen responses from potential buyers.
  • ✅ Negotiate the transaction details with the chosen buyer.
  • ✅ Oversee the creation of necessary documents (sales contract, non-compete agreement, promissory note, etc.).
  • ✅ Provide guidance through the transaction, including due diligence.
  • ✅ Coordinate escrow and legal services for both parties.
  • ✅ Significantly reduce the client's workload during the sales process, allowing focus on their practice.

All of these services are included in one brokerage fee, which is paid at close of escrow. There are no up-front fees and no hourly billings.

⚠️ Do you already have a buyer lined-up? This is not uncommon. Most of the same services are still needed to assure a successful and binding transaction; but marketing, screening, and price-negotiation are not required, so we offer a discount in these situations.

⚠️  Bringing in a partner? This is really a partial sale, and Practice Consultants can provide the same spectrum of services, now and later, when the new partner completes the purchase of the entire practice from you. This is often called a step sale. You pay our fee once, and we handle both “steps” of the sale.

BUYER BROKERAGE: If you are interested in buying a practice, we will:

  • Evaluate the value of the target practice(s).
  • Collaborate to establish offer parameters.
  • Negotiate the deal with the seller's representative.
  • Coordinate necessary escrow and legal services.
  • Fees typically paid by the seller, though buyer may incur costs under certain conditions.

Are you looking for a practice in a specific target area? Our PracticeFinder service can help. We will mail a letter to the practices in your target area, to encourage those owners to consider selling. We will research the area, gather the addresses, author and produce the letter, mail it, and field the responses. We will contact you immediately if any of the respondents appears be a match with your objectives.
