About Us

Physician Transaction Advisors

For the past 20 years the industry leading team at Physician Transaction Advisors (formerly ASCs Inc.) has focused exclusively on expertly representing physician-owners who are considering a strategic partnership and selling an interest in their group practice or surgery centers. With every engagement we involve our entire senior leadership team and support staff. This means that every client is able to leverage what we have learned from expertly managing more than 300 of these complex and time consuming transactions to ensure that the physician-owners end up with the best possible results.

Our level of experience is simply unmatched. Prior to joining Physician Transaction Advisors our senior team members have collectively syndicated, developed, managed and operated hundreds of group practices, surgery centers, group and surgical hospitals and have worked with over 1,000 individual organizations, giving us a deep understanding of the healthcare marketplace which we utilize to help our clients realize the most exceptional outcomes.

We are Advisors, not Investment Bankers or Business Brokers

We early on made the decision that our approach was going to be as an advisor to our clients. While our team has extensive healthcare experience and has worked in both the investment banking and brokerage spaces, we believe it is imperative that our clients have true transparency into the entire transaction process, are able to evaluate every prospective partnership independently and are involved every step of the way.
