lets get started...

making business connections with  private practitioners across the country.


Going national to connect private practitioners across the country.

After focusing on practices in the NY area, Iris Kimberg, MS PT OTR, a private practice consultant with over 40 years in the industry is now helping therapists across the country connect with each other to sublet office space, sell therapy equipment and help find the most qualified buyers for all types of physical, occupational and speech therapy private practices across the country.  Whether you are a solo sports medicine practitioner, a multi state provider, or own a pediatric sensory gym, whether you are ready to retire and pass the torch along, or have grown your practice as far as you can or want to, this is the place to find out the who, what, where and how to go about the process of selling your practice, or buying someone else's.  Listings in all categories are $75 and will stay live for 75 days.

You can now purchase the recording of the webinar held Nov 15th. It includes the Q/A and a hard copy of the powerpoint. 24/7/365 access available.

It has been a very busy first three quarters in 2018 and I have personally been involved in 6 practices being sold so far this year. What is really great about it is they happened in New York, Florida, Colorado, and New Jersey,  and involved OT and PT practices.  The deals were done with individual practitioners, corporate entities and even a therapist from abroad.  So, the answer to the question I get most – is there still a market for therapy practices is a resounding YES!   This year has also affirmed for me the importance for therapists to start planning an exit strategy early and to build in value over time. There are value makers and value takers in every practice. Do you know what yours are?????   

The sale of your practice should start long before it is announced publicly. Proper preparation is essential. Not since the consolidation in our industry back in the 90’s has there been so much interest in therapy practice sales, mergers and consolidations and all research points to this trend continuing.  Regardless of whom you might end up selling to, two points to always keep in mind are that (1) anything that increases the volume or the security of future revenue will increase the value of your practice, and (2) what makes your practice valuable to you will make it valuable to a buyer. More and more corporate entities are buying up practices across the country.  Find out who are they and if you are missing the boat, making a deal with the devil, or might be better off selling internally to someone in your practice or a local competitor.

Learning Objectives:
1) Understand the specific criteria used to determine the valuation of a practice, including EBITDA, goodwill, infrastructure etc. and what are viewed as value makers versus value takers in the industry.
2) Understand the steps necessary  to prepare your practice to bring it to market and when to get this process started
3) Find out the financial preparation and forms you need to have in place and for review during  due diligence
4) Discuss differences between an outright acquisition, merger, and structured buy in and what determines the best fit for your scenario
5) Understand what makes negotiating with a fellow therapists versus a corporate entity so different and how
you can level the playing field
6)  Discuss the pros and cons of using a broker or intermediary and what makes a qualified buyer
7)  See what you need to do so that you can answer the #1 question: “Can this practice exist without you?”
8)  Understand the steps necessary in selling a practice including non disclosure agreements (NDA), letters of intent (LOI) and purchase agreements.

YES YES YES!!!!  if you are considering buying another therapist’s practice, this info is VERY relevant for you too! This webinar is to take the angst out of selling a practice and present the information in user friendly, logical steps. The issue will be presented from both the perspective of the buyer and the seller. Live Q/A!

This webinar is presented by Iris Kimberg, MS PT OTR CEO of NYTherapyguide.com who, on her own, sold her therapy agency in a multi million $ deal to a Fortune 500 company. She has worked on valuations of many  practices and helped sell over 2 dozen OT PT and ST practices in the last number of years.  Iris has presented this material for the APTA PPS conference and privately to over 300 therapists.   $95

I never act as a broker in a practice sale and never work on a commission basis. Often, I know both the buyer and the seller, do not want any appearance of a conflict of interest, and also firmly believe that if a deal is successful, it must be fair and equitable to both sides of the equation.
