I met David Shuffler in 1982. I had just resigned my commission in the Army Medical Corps to set up a private Urology practice. Not knowing where to start, I asked my brother, a banker, for some advice. He recommended that I contact David and I became his second banking client.

Not only did David arrange financing, he also gently guided me through practice management 101. Throughout the years, we’ve developed a close friendship and whenever I need sage advice, I turn to him.

David is a great package: brains, sense of humor, loyalty and strong moral fiber.

Since I am thinking about retiring in a few years, I thought it would be premature to evaluate my medical practice today. Fortunately, I met David Shuffler. He advised me to move ahead and value my practice now.

Having an excellent and thorough evaluation available has allowed me to be proactive and explore several exit options David and Vincent Brinly brought to my attention.

Their approach to practice valuation is well researched, thorough and tailored to my specific situation. They even went the extra mile and researched IRS regulations regarding charitable contributions in the event I might decide to donate my practice to my hospital.

I certainly recommend the Practice Valuation Group without reservation to anyone contemplating exiting medical practice in the next few years.

After significant thought regarding the monetary worth of my medical practice, I contacted David Shuffler and Vincent Brinly of the Practice Valuation Group for a professional valuation.

They gathered lots of demographic and financial data in order to make the most informed recommendation of the fair market value of my practice. After several conference calls, they sent me a written valuation report and, then, explained how they arrived at their valuation conclusion.

I am very satisfied with their consulting services.

In these times of economic uncertainty, it is worthwhile to plan for the future by knowing what your practice is worth. By doing this, you maximize your ability to make informed decisions about your professional, personal and financial future.

I highly recommend their services to any physician who is interested in assessing their practice and its fair market value.

David Shuffler and I have shared numerous clients over the past 15 years and have worked on many engagements together.

What sets David apart is the extra value he brings to his clients beyond a valuation or consulting engagement. He sees the “bigger picture” – often identifying issues the client has not recognized, and working cooperatively with the client’s other professionals, including lawyers, accountants, bankers, insurance agents, and billing professionals to resolve them. He is a true consigliere. David’s clients also benefit from his extensive network of contacts within the healthcare industry.

I have recommended David to numerous clients and he has always made me look good!

David Shuffler exhibits the highest level of professional integrity. He is a committed and passionate professional who is prepared to help guide your practice to success.

He was instrumental in helping me merge three small veterinary practices into one thriving veterinary business. David helped us map an operating model for our hospital system; develop a brand image; establish operations protocol and re-structure our finances and banking relations.

I would highly recommend David for your valuation and practice management needs. His experience in medical practice finance and extensive banking relationships are invaluable.

I met David Shuffler many years ago when I was searching for a dental practice to purchase.

Buying or selling a practice can be very stressful experience. The practice I purchased was particularly so since it involved a dentist that had suddenly passed away. His family members were engaged in settling his estate as well as the sale of the practice. David was very skillful in educating the family in the valuation process.

The transition could not have gone smoother. David’s attention to details, professionalism and knowledge is what sets him apart from the rest. His integrity is unmatched and he has the uncanny ability to break down complex business ideas and make them simple to understand. Both parties felt the deal was very fair, even today I am still very friendly with the family of the prior dentist.

I would highly recommend David for any practice valuation or management needs. His business acumen is rare and anyone who uses his talent will be well served. I am very fortunate to have met him.

David Shuffler has been a godsend to me, my family and my practice.

I have met no other person that is so competent and talented in dental practice acquisition and financial forecasting than David. From large urban clinics to small private practices, his recommendations and analyses have proven to be right on target each and every time.

He taught me to pass up a deal if it is not profitable or too much of a risk. His forecast accuracy and deep knowledge kept me from making huge mistakes that would have ruined me financially.

Similarly, his expertise has proven to work like a charm in my current dental practice which is thriving despite the current economic situation. I would seek no other advice in my field when looking to purchase, sell or simply evaluate a dental practice than that of David Shuffler.

Thanks a million!

The smartest thing I did when I decided to buy a practice was hire Vincent Brinly and the Practice Valuation Group.  They worked efficiently to give me a valuation that was thorough, fair, and accurate which enabled the seller and I to finalize the deal.

I looked at another practice and asked Vincent to appraise it.  He advised me not to buy this practice because it was broken and overpriced and helped me to understand buying it would be a huge mistake.

Without reserve I would recommend Vincent and the PVG team to my colleagues because they have the know-how and savvy to give you a realistic, straightforward, quality evaluation which is essential when buying a practice.

“If you have to have your practice valued, you can place your trust in the track record, experience and responsiveness of our appraisal team. Here’s why.

  • All we do is value medical, veterinary, chiropractic, podiatry and dental practices.
  • We analyze practice specific risk factors rather than just crunch numbers.
  • We understand the theory of valuation and the common sense of practice economics.”
