September 15, 2020






Nashville, TN - Physicians First recently served as the exclusive financial advisor to Valley Eye Institute and Valley Eye Ambulatory Surgery Center (“VEI”) in its affiliation with CEI Vision Partners (“CVP”). This is Physicians First’s fifth transaction to close in 2020, and its sixth ophthalmology transaction.


VEI is a leading ophthalmology practice and ambulatory surgery center located in Sydney, Ohio with three providers and four locations. It is led by Dr. Michael Stark and offers comprehensive ophthalmology along with a specialty dry eye diseases clinic.


Physicians First represented VEI throughout the transaction. Given its location in the Sydney and greater Dayton market, the practice and ASC were a natural fit for CEI Vision Partners.
