“We don’t talk about valuation theory or appraisal concept with doctors and their advisors. We talk about fair market value, pricing models, practice economics and macroeconomic and practice-specific risk analysis. We discuss procedure. We thrash out execution and strategy. If a doctor walks this talk with us, we will solve his or her valuation problem. You can take that to the bank.”
