An A-team philosophy designed exclusively for medical practices and surgery centers.
Physician-Owner Exclusivity

Physicians First is designed to provide exceptional investment banking services to physician-owned practices and ASCs. Our principals lead and manage every transaction from start to finish. That's why we are selective about who and how many we work with.

We partner with a wide range of practice specialties with anywhere from two to twenty plus physicians. Every client gets our personal attention.

Top Tier Services

You can complete a transaction on your own - many business owners have done so successfully. Our goal is to help you get a better outcome, particularly when executing complex deals with multiple interested buyers. We offer a structured process designed to make stronger deals that close more quickly with less stress. Sellers who see that value hire an investment banker. 

 

Yet, it is often uneconomic for large banks to serve mid-sized practices. Those physicians shouldn't settle for a business broker without an investment banking license or private equity experience. We saw the need and built Physicians First to serve our unique client set in a way that makes sense for them. 

Experienced and Credentialed

We work hard to be among the leading experts in physician-owned transactions with private equity. Our physician clients value our disciplined banking processes, our private equity relationships and our unique perspective gained through extensive experience in the financial, operational, and clinical components of healthcare delivery.
