Client Testimonials

"My father was nearing the end of his career and planning to sell his practice to prepare for retirement. Before he could complete his dream, he unexpectedly passed away. I was then tasked with not only selling the practice, but trying to run it and keep it viable until we could find a buyer. My AFTCO Analyst was already working with my father trying to find a buyer. My Analyst was instrumental in helping keeping the practice open, offering help to me as I tried to manage the office. The practice was sold to a dentist that he helped get to work in interim. He handled the contracts and negotiations till the final day. Can't say enough about my AFTCO Analyst and all he did for me."

"From initial contact, I found AFTCO to be extremely professional and helpful to both ends of the transaction. As soon as I am ready to buy another practice, there is no doubt I will contact AFTCO again."

Rashid Beirute-Prada, D.D.S.
Plano, TX

"I am extremely satisfied with my experience with AFTCO and the sale of my practice. They took a personal approach and got to know me and my practice to match with suitable prospective buyers. They prescreen buyers for financial and other matters. I did not waste my time talking to unqualified buyers. My AFTCO Analyst was extremely knowledgable, professional, and understanding. Selling a practice is very stressful and when I had questions he promptly answered them which helped allay some of the stress. His advice turned out be absolutely correct every time. I highly recommend AFTCO to anyone who is contemplating a practice transition."

Rose-Marie Fay, D.D.S.
Sugar Land, TX

"I have now bought three practices with the help of my AFTCO consultant. His attention to detail, helpfulness, timeliness, and support made all three transitions very smooth; not only for me as a purchaser but also for the selling doctors. Not only were the transitions quick and painless but he has followed up after their completion to ensure success and my own peace of mind. Thank you AFTCO for helping me shape my career."
