Disciplined Investment Banking Tailored to Clinical Businesses

A New Approach, Well Received

We created Physicians First to fill a void in the marketplace ... the need for superior investment banking services for the owner-sellers of clinical businesses. Our success helps validate this new approach and our clients speak highly of the benefits we deliver. 

 

Our clients value our disciplined banking processes, private equity relationships and unique perspective gained through extensive experience in the financial, operational, and clinical components of healthcare delivery.

Professional Experience

I have been working in healthcare for almost my entire career. I started on the operations side managing a portfolio of ophthalmology, gastroenterology, and pain management practices and ASCs. That was at a private equity-backed company which is now owned by KKR. I started working as an investment banker in 2016 when Andy and I founded Physicians First. We have stayed totally focused on healthcare since then. I graduated from Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt Law School. 

Accomplishments

I am very proud of what we built at Physicians First. We were already a part of this ecosystem but saw the need for a specialized investment banking process tailored to medical practices and other clinical businesses – particularly in private equity deals. After we got up and running we closed nine transactions in less than two years, making us one of the most active groups in this space. I think we are viewed as an expert on these transactions which is very rewarding. These are special deals because the selling doctors are incredibly involved, and each circumstance is unique.

Personal

I am a father of three and really enjoy spending time with my wife and kids. We love to travel together and be outside. I am a fitness enthusiast and like to get a 5:30am workout in before the day starts.
