Why Choosing an Expert Medical Practice Valuation Consultant Matters

The physician who obtains an independent valuation gains a better understanding of the practice’s value. An independently prepared valuation prepared by a qualified, experienced accredited or certified business appraiser with medical practice experience will help to insure that you make an informed and proper decision. In addition, the medical practice valuation consultant will often be available to offer advice regarding the parameters for setting an asking price, deal terms and restrictive covenants.

Recognized Business Valuation Credentials

Recognized Business Valuation Credentials Include:

  • Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA), a designation of the American Society of Appraisers;
  • Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV), a designation of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants; and
  • Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA), a designation of the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts.

The Importantance of Business Valuation Credentials and Expertise

All three designations require extensive training, continuing professional education and experience. Individuals with these credentials have all passed rigorous examinations and have been certified to perform business valuations. Additionally, physicians should use business appraisers who have health care expertise (including medical, dental, surgery centers, and hospitals). The health care industry is highly specialized and regulated, and the appraiser must be knowledgeable regarding practice risks, regulatory compliance, changes due to Health Care Reform, reimbursement rate trends, and more. Health care appraisers have also invested in health care databases, industry information and sources that contain information on medical practice sales, practice cost structures and physician compensation, to name a few.
