Client Testimonials

"My Analyst was an invaluable source of knowledge and support in the purchase of our practice by my associate. I sincerely believe that he was instrumental in creating a "win-win" experience for me as the seller and my associate as the buyer. My Analyst was ALWAYS available with prompt answers to our many questions and concerns. His knowledge is invaluable. In a related matter, my attorney read and re-read several times, the sale contract and related documents. His statement to me was basically, "Each time I read the contract, I come away more impressed. These people know what they're doing." Once again, my family and I and my new partner thank you for a job well done."

"My experience with AFTCO was very brief and pleasant. The entire process was as easy and stress-free as I could have ever imagined. My AFTCO Analyst was what made this such a pleasant experience. If I needed him for a question, he was always there, and if he didn't answer when I would call, he would call back ASAP. The entire process went like this: I decided to sell my practice and contacted AFTCO. My AFTCO Analyst called me and told me he had someone interested. I showed him the practice and he bought it. We signed the contract and it was done and over. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it would go this smoothly. Thank you for doing such a great job with the sale of my practice."

David S. Long, D.M.D.
Dothan, AL

"After practicing dentistry for 39 years and not knowing all my options to transition out or downgrade my time in my dental practice, my AFTCO Analyst was very professional and clear about how we could do that. I never felt any pressure and he was there 24/7 to answer all my questions. I have been very pleased on how easy this very difficult decision has been and the results that have occurred. I would highly recommend AFTCO's services to any of my colleagues."
