"Working with AFTCO was great! My AFTCO Analyst was very professional and answered all of our questions. He was readily available for phone calls and really helped us through the entire process. We had a few bumps and my AFTCO Analyst was very accommodating to help us with a work around."

"My AFTCO Analyst made the practice purchase process smooth and relatively stress-free. He was extremely responsive to emails and always accessible by phone. He was informative and funny. He would preemptively call just to check in on me and to ask if there was anything I needed. From the first conversation to confirming the bill of sale, my AFTCO Analyst was a joy to work with and I will absolutely recommend AFTCO to any of my colleagues that are in the search for the perfect practice. My AFTCO Analyst and AFTCO have my highest regards!"
